... feel like family and could not have been nicer. They gave us a full tour of the villa and showed us all that it had to offer. This place is amazing. I kept thinking we were in a dream. A private pool with built in BBQ and bar.... luxurious bathroom with a jacuzzi tub... a view so amazing you can see the curvature of the earth over the amazing green blue waters of the Caribbean. The Georges made ...

We had a great time, but now it's time to get back to reality. We stayed the night in Trellis Bay and handed the boat over to Jelly so he could return it to the Moorings. We hauled our luggage on shore using the dingy and then took a very short taxi ride to the airport to head home. ...

The main language is English with many West Indies dialects. In addition, there are local languages and Spanish is spoken frequently. The argument many have that immigrants and foreigners coming to the United States should understand and speak English is a courtesy that we as a nation don't reciprocate. We travel without a thought to the many languages and expect that we are communicated with in English giving ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Fort Recovery Beachfront Villa & Suites Hotel Road Town
Can only agree with the previous writer. We based our travel decision for a good part on the good reviews that this place got from others on this site but unfortunately we cannot share their view.
Overall, Fort Recovery offers decent, clean accomodations and the location is great for exploring Tortola. The staff takes good care of the facility, the boat trip is a blast, the place attracts a variety of guests, and the view relaxes the shoulders. Travelers may want to know that the bed consists of two singles pushed together, the shower is small for a skinny person, noise is an issue unless you close your villa and crank the AC, and cigarette smoke from adjacent villas may become an issue. The food is mediocre at best (unthawed cake and bone dry noodles during dinner, bread and hard boiled eggs for breakfast day after day). But the waiter is a sweetie, especially if you speak Spanish with him. The management, who reminded us of camp directors, often seemed like they were doing us a favor by taking our thousands of dollars and allowing us to stay there (without a smile to boot). Plus, we opted for the package deal but when they cancelled part of our package due to staff unavailability they didn't even offer to credit our account (and we didn't press it). And, the package does not come with a Jeep as advertised. We really wanted to love the place and we're relatively low maintenance travelers but we would definitely not return to Fort Recovery.
My husband and I went to Fort Recovery to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary in mid-February 04. What a fabulous place....clean, beautiful, friendly, intimate. Pam was there to assist whenever asked.
The boat trip was a blast....snorkeling and visiting the "Willy T". The view from our room was breathtaking...always something to see going by.
The other guests were friendly. We are planning another trip this year, and this time bringing the whole family plus some. When we did leave and took the ferry back to St. Thomas to get our plane....the site of the hotels, eateries, traffic lights, the droves of people on St.
Thomas made me long for Tortola instantly.
Fantastic Wedding and Honeymoon!
There is just not enough we can say about our stay at Fort Recovery! We chose to have our small wedding and a honeymoon on Tortola and the setting here was perfect! A quiet, secluded and romantic setting, the villas were charming and comfortably furnished. Pamelah provided endless advise and arranged countless details. The provided breakfasts and private dinners were delicious, while the staff and provided services were wonderful. All of the guests we met were friendly and the boat trip together was so fun! Honestly, the only thing we wish we could have changed was our reservation--to stay another week!! We will be back for sure!
If you want to feel like a King and Queen go to Fort Recovery in Tortola. The outstanding service excelled from the moment we arrived.
Fort Recovery and Tortola-one of our best vacations ever!
We've been to other Islands, and stayed at every kind of resort, but our vacation to Fort Recovery Beach Resort on Tortola was the best! From the moment we arrived to the beautifully landscaped grounds we felt we'd made the right choice. Our beautifully appointed villa was right on the beach with a view to Frenchman's Cay and St John. Our package included a jeep and we visited all the other beaches and resorts and are happy that we chose Fort Recovery for our vacation.
Would not return
Would never stay there again. We went with another family. Neither of us got the accomodations promised. The owners were unpleasant and not accomodating. We had five children between us and needed some laundry done, which was an amenity they claimed to offer. Their staff was not willing to do it and the owners offered no support. The rooms were bare bones and not very clean. I would not return!! Tortola, on the other hand, we loved.
We recently spent our honeymoon at Fort Recovery. While it was off-season that we were there, the experience was nothing less than wonderful. The thing to remember when you come to F.R. is to not expect a huge, fancy hotel type of place. The island in general is very relaxed and sometimes you can confuse what is normal "island service" as a lack of service. The pace is totally different on the island. The villas themselves are clean, the dinners in the rooms are prepared and served professionaly. The staff is very polite and willing to assist you with anything that they can.I would recommend getting the jeep rental, it was essential for us and really cut down our costs on taxi's. I would also recommend that if you have fresh flowers in your room, to dispose of them asap. They seem to attract micro-ants.Store everything in your refrigerator and definetly get some groceries (pop, beer, wine, etc) to store in the fridge. Bring your camera and tons of file, the photo opportunites are enormous!We will definetly be back to Fort Recovery.
Not a bad recovery!
A small personable resort. The grounds and small pool were very clean.We had the week pkg.which was a good value(although the resort's boat wasn't running for the included snorkeling trip but a Tortola ferry trip was offered instead). Great views from our second floor balcony! The three dinners at the resort were excellent! The con. breakfast needs some variety and the rooms could be a bit nicer (not luxury as advertised). Also the small beach has alot of black erchins in the shallows and a few visitors were stung. The resort's west end location was great for exploring!
