We REALLY wanted this place to work for us. We have a LONG history with the area; West End Tortola BVI...I mean seriously long way back to 1968 - So when we stayed there in 2016 I was hopeful. What can I say? Quaint should not be overpriced with poor, lackadaisical service. We ended our bareboat charter and spent one night there in two separate rooms for the 6 of us. Great views but we were ready for some easy dinner and a good shower. Both disappointing. I HATE giving bad reviews but this palce should be sold soon and converted to CONDOS. Skip it and stay in town. BTW ---- This place is 45 minutes away on bad, scary roads!

Stayed: March 2016

I am so sorry that you found things so disappointing. We really do try to please people as much as we can, with the help of mother nature being on our side. Perhaps having an extra person in a one bedroom suite may have been a little crowded since it consists of a patio, living-dining area, fully equipped kitchen bedroom and bath. The rooms are suites, not apartments or they would have larger closets and storage space. It was a good idea but it wouldn't work. I didn't known what you meant by "Quaint" but it could mean "cute", and after spending so much on the furnishings and by one of the better designers from New York, I am really sorry you didn't like it and Thank you if you did. It was only a one night stay, and if you accept another stay as my guest, I would be very happy if you would give us another chance and make it up to you. I am very sorry for the discomfort about the lack of service and I am distressed about it and did bring it up to the staff. Thank you for your patience.

A perfectly wonderful 9-day stay, on the quieter Caribbean side of the island. Fort Recovery is a wonderful place in itself, private, very nicely appointed, unfussy, and, thanks to Anita and her exceptionally helpful and friendly staff, very well run. It's also a very short drive to the Atlantic side, with its restaurants (especially D Coalpot) and an array of other beaches, starting with Smuggler's Cove. Heading the other way, it's a spectacularly beautiful drive to Roadtown, which is well worth visiting for its museums and roti shops and just a feel of real life on the islands. Tortola offers a more varied set of experiences than most of the Caribbean, and Fort Recovery is an ideal place from which to take it all in -- or just lounge around,

Thank you, Thank you.....I am so glad that you had a wonderful stay and that you enjoyed the Caribbean Sea. Our staff never gets tired of hearing that the guests appreciate them. It always helps so much when you notice the effort made. I truly thank you for that great remark. I'm glad you found D'Coalpot Restaurant because it is one of my favorite ones also. You certainly hit a great many wonderful spots. Please keep in touch with us if you can, especially on our facebook and see the up to date news and offers we may have in Tortola and here.

We came only to see the Fort. There is one tower still standing without any entrance. There is another fort Fort Purcell down the street called The Dungeon. You have to look close, there is no sign. It is on the other side of the road from the beach and is overgrown but has a few buildings left. There is a drive off the street.

Thank you for enjoying our Fort at Fort Recovery Beachfront Villa and Suites. It is one of the oldest Forts in the Caribbean and with the original name according to the archives in England. Wounded men were sent to Fort Recovery to recover and also protected the Sir Frances Drake Channel of the Caribbean Sea. I believe The Dungeon was not a Fort but a Sugar Mill. It is a wonderful landmark and really very interesting, not to be missed if in Tortola. Tortola is full of marked landmarks and fun to visit. Thank for your interest in Tortola, British Virgin Islands..........Anita

Fort recovery villas were absolutely beautiful and peaceful. The villas are right on the beach and the sound of the waves was very relaxing. The villas were very clean and well appointed. The staff was friendly and experts at getting taxis. We didn't have a car so spent a lot of time at the villa and used taxis to get around. Very easy. It is between roads town and sopers hole

I was so appreciative of your wonderful review I did not know that my response wasn't printed. However, I have a strong feeling that I didn't push the right button to respond. I am so sorry, because I was so happy that you seemed to have a good time at our hotel. Our staff thanks you also for noting the way we try to keep our place. It is good to hear that you were relaxed and happy with your surroundings. Thank you once again and would love to see you again.........Anita and the Staff.

I stayed at Fort Recovery with my family during the Christmas Holiday. We had two suites next to one another - both with a heavenly view. The suite, a bedroom, living room and small kitchen, was roomy, comfortable and clean. Let's not forget the porch right on the sea. I started every day sitting on the porch, reading a book and looking at the sea. I ended each day on the porch sipping wine, ready a book and watching the sea, it doesn't get better than Fort Recovery. Did I mention that it was just a few steps from our room to the beach where there were comfortable beach chase lounges, lots of privacy and even some shade. We had a delicious and festive Christmas dinner at the restaurant, where once again everything was perfect. The owner, management and employees were kind and gracious. The only problem was that we were there for only two weeks. We could have stayed there forever,
