My husband and I honeymooned at LDB and fell in absolute love with VG... so we're going back! However, LDB is a little pricy this time of year, so we're looking for an alternative...
Here's what we want:
- To be on or a very short walk from the beach
- Ease of getting to restaurants/things to do (a restaurant on site would be nice)
- NOT to rent a car, take taxis everywhere (we rented a car in STT and hated it, we don’t mind the extra cost of taxis)
- NOT to have to cook a lot (i.e. we don't mind doing cereal & toast in the mornings, but would like to eat out for dinner for sure)
Sooo…I’m looking for some feedback on my impressions of these 4 places based on what I have read on tripadvisor… Any of this wrong? Is there anywhere else that sounds like it would be a better fit (I think I’ve looked at everything on the island)? I go back & forth on considering Tortola, but we stayed at Sugar Mill a few years back (for only 1 night) and we weren’t that impressed, we like the smallness of VG.
Biggest concern: Looks very old, very mixed reviews [We don’t mind old, as long as it’s clean… we love Sandcastle on JVD, for example]
Biggest Draw: Has everything else
Biggest concern: No restaurant on site, would have to take 10 min taxi ride into town to eat (or have provisions in room)
Biggest Draw: Looks nice, and beautiful beach!
Biggest concerns: Looks really touristy, and the beach looks small/crowded, ease of getting taxis?, Restaurant situation (Onsite restaurant looks good, Giorgio’s table is close, and free water taxi to Saba Rock, free water taxi at Gunn Creek (5 min taxi ride?) to Bitter End/Biras [Correct me if any of this is wrong!])
Biggest Draw: We’ve visited, but never stayed, in the North Sound… Might be fun to explore a new area!
*Guavaberry* (not sure if they only rent weekly?, we’ll only be there 6 days)
Biggest concern: Not close enough to beach? (seems like it depends on unit) [I’ve emailed them]
Biggest Draw: Looks nice, beautiful beach
Feedback? Additional Info? Please let me know, I need to book this soon!
