We found the Sugar Mill online and decided to book the trip based on the excellent reviews - IT DID NOT DISAPPOINT! The reason for the trip was to celebrate my parent's 50th wedding anniversary and how special the owners and staff of the Sugar Mill made it. My parents stayed in room 142, which is likely the best room on the resort - beautifully appointed and an incredible view of the ocean. My husband and I stayed in the honeymoon suite which was spacious, and we actually enjoyed the outdoor shower (the only shower in the suite).
We recommend doing the all-inclusive. - all week or by the day. You will find the food and drinks out of this world and certainly worth the money. The full week all-inclusive includes 2 excursions. The first was a tour of Tortola with a champagne picnic on Beef Island. Our tour was hosted by the resort owner, Dennis, who knew all about the island history and local culture, plus we hit a couple of hot spots for drinks throughout the day. The second was a day long catamaran ride with snorkeling. We got to visit Salt Island, Peter Island and Cooper Island. Definitely do this excursion!!!
And finally, the best asset of the resort - THE STAFF! We felt like family when we left. Mary, the owner, is the best hostess around. She is so inviting and caring. I looked forward to seeing her everyday. I cannot say enough about Sharon, the restaurant manager, and Theresa, the bar manager. No desire went unmet. And the rest of the staff was friendly, kind and so wonderful.
Remember that you are going to an island surrounded by white beaches and water so clear you can see 45 feet deep. Things are slower and more relaxed. Let yourself go there.......and go to the Sugar Mill Resort.
