Just got back today from the BVI and stayed 2 nights at Sugar Mill on Tortola and 2 nights on Virgin Gorda at Little Dix Bay. The Sugar Mill was great with so much Carribean charm. We loved the laid back feel to this hotel...not at all stuffy. The staff was very nice and very accomodating. The rooms are well appointed and we were lucky enough to have a pool suite with great views of the bay and an outdoor shower, which we loved! It was simply an amazing feeling to shower outside under the sun or in the rain.
The best part of the Sugar Mill is by far the food. The dinner we had in the restaurant will be one we remember for a long time. The flavors were delicious and the dishes were simple. We gave our compliments to the chef. So did many others at surrounding tables. I believe the chef's name is Matt.
As far as the location goes, it was fine. The hotel will call you a cab if you want to go to a nearby beach. There is a small beach across the street that is sufficient for just lounging but probably not where you would want to go for any water activities. There is a larger beach called Long Bay that is about a 15 min walk from the hotel. You have to hike up a very steep hill to get there. There is a small bar on that beach that's run by a guy that calls himself "Nature Boy". He was nice and my husband quickly mad friends with him. If your interested in a wild party atmosphere there is a bar down the street called Bomba shack. Be cautious when going there, especially to there Full Moon Party. We were told by some locals to never leave your drink unattended there and never leave your wife/girlfriend alone. They say that place is known to put "psychedelic shrooms" in there rum punch. I guess by the end of the evening there are people getting naked and its pretty wild. Probably an easy place to get robbed if your unaware of your surroundings.
We would definately stay at the Sugar Mill again. It provides all the relaxing comforts you would expect on vacation.
