looking for similiar to GCBC in Tortola

We plan to go to Tortola in summer 2007. Last year we stayed at the Grand Case Beach Club and I wondered if there is anywhere in Tortola similiar to this. eg by the beach but walking distance to shops and restaurants. Any suggestions much appreciated but please dont suggest other islands as we are going to Tortola to visit relatives - thanks

I don't think you'll find too many similarities between Tortola and St. Martin. Tortola is much less developed, very scenic, and mostly uncrowded. It's very laid back and safer, too. If you do want to be close to restaurants and shops, however, you might choose a place to stay in or near Road Town. Check out the A&L Inn, Paradise Suites, Sea View HOtel, Fort Burt, Hotel Castle Maria, Hummingbird House, and Treasure Isle Hotel. Some of these are in Road Town and walking distance to shops, etc. Others are a short drive but still in the RT area. There are also many villas to rent on Tortola, some also close in to town.

You can also get the ferry from Road Town to all of the other British Virgins, as well as to St. Thomas and St. John in the US Virgins. Try to get to the Baths on Virgin Gorda, great shopping on St. Thomas, and spectacular scenery/beaches/water on St. John.

Is St.Maarten really crowded and touristy like Cancun??? Tortola sounds great -I can get flights to st. Thomas-how long is the ferry ride to Tortola?

No - St Maarten is nothing at all like Cancun.
