“Absolutely FANTASTIC!!!”
Reviewed 24 February 2011

We decided at Guava Road soley based on the reviews here and were not disappointed! It even exceeded them based on all the "extras" that come with staying there. What first sold me was the free transportation to and from the airport. That took a lot of stress off of renting a car first thing or paying for a taxi to drive us over to the other side of the island. Alfonso was right there to meet us and allowed us a stop at the grocery store to pick up food before we headed to the apartments. George met us as soon as we arrived and showed us around. The apartment was spacious, clean and extremely comfortable. They had our refridgerator stocked with sodas, coffee, alcohol, water and condiments. I knew about these perks before booking and that seemed like the best deal ever, but there were even more extras that just pushed it over the top. There were beach chairs, beach towels, a bbq grill, all kitchen supplies and cookware, shampoos, lotions and even bug spray available in each apartment. It is like they thought of everything and didn't want you to scramble for anything. We dealt mostly with George and he was both informative and really fun! Pat is a great artist and made us a beautiful magnet. Alphonso was so patient and kind despite 4 cranky travelers tired from a long day of flying. We are not the type of family to visit the same destinations twice, but this vacation will be a VERY hard place to beat. If we ever come back, Guava Road is the only place we would ever stay.

I always try to search on tripadvisor to see what hotel or specialty lodging should be really good. After seeing only excellent reviews on this one, I could not spend the week anywhere else than in this place. And indeed: the choice was excellent. We stayed at the Fish (B) appartment which was just gorgeous. Big, clean, everything worked fine and on top of that the fridge was just filled with a lot, and I mean a lot, more than I expected: breakfast for the next days, lots of drinks and snacks etc. Although we did have some cloudy and rainy days, the outside sitting area with comfy chairs provided us with just wat we needed: a good relaxing place, reading a book and enjoying a drink....or two. George made us feel welcome and we felt at home as soon as we arrived. We also rented the nice car for 4 days and the service by George was the best you can have. We met Alphonso as well, a very friendly and welcoming man as well. Believe all the excellent reviews: excellent + should be an extra category for this place. I can not think of any negative aspect whatsoever. The beach and a few restaurants are just a minute away as well. We got snorkelling gear to use for free as well, and they also provide beach chairs to take with you when you go out. There is BBQ if you wish to use that. I hope to visit again in the near future. Thanks for a wondeful stay!

My girlfriend and I stayed at Guava Road for nine days in late October 2010. From the moment we landed on Tortola, George - manager/caretaker of Guava Road) made sure our stay would be enjoyable. He picked us up from the ferry at the West End and took us to our new "home." The fridge had food and drinks waiting, the place was spotless, and we were set.

George stopped by daily to make sure things were OK, the place was kept immaculate, and it's so quiet, it's unbelievable. No, it's not a five-star resort, nor does it have spectacular views, but that's the point . . . you feel like you're living on Tortola, not in some sequestered compound with all the other tourists. I would heartily recommend Guava Road to anyone looking to stay in the BVIs, and I would return there in a heartbeat.

Great location just a minutes walk from the beautiful Apple bay.
George is a great guy was really helpful and couldn't do enough for us.
Wouldn't hesitate in re booking at Guava Road next time, can't wait to return.

Pat made us feel special and welcome even before we arrived. She always was so helpful with answering questions, via e mails and to do everything that she could to help us before we even got there. After we arrived Pat & Alphonso met us at the airport and took us to our temporary hotel, then when we came back from Anegada on the ferry, Alphonso again met us and took us home. Yes, I say home. Anywhere else that we have stayed at we would say “let's go back to the hotel”, here it was always “let's go home”. One of the biggest reasons that we would say that was because of Pat and Alphonso. They did everything that they could to make our vacation enjoyable, happy, and stress free.

Pat and Alphonso are two of the friendliest, kindest and helpful people that you could ever hope to meet.
They did everything that they could to make our vacation comfortable, safe and fun!

Pat even called us one day when it was pouring down rain so hard the roads flooded, because she was worried about us. That was so thoughtful.

They had food and drinks in the fooderator when we arrived, they rented Marilyn (the Suzuki Grand Vitara ) to us so we could drive around the island. What fun! They had WI-fi for our laptop, beach chairs and towels, a bar-b-que (loved that), a cell phone, (came in handy more than once). They even, never had this before, the housekeeper to wash our clothes and the way that they took care of the place, was just amazing!

All we had to do was wear ourselves out being tourists, which we did.

The apartment was beautiful and big. I liked the open kitchen, dining, living room arrangement and the veranda to bar-b-Que and eat out on as long as you sprayed for mosquitoes first.

I would not recommend that you stay here at all, but if you stay anywhere else down there you will not be as happy or as well taken care of, so you all better stay there if you want to be pampered and made to feel that this is “home” and not just a place to stay. That is my recommendation, Yes do not stay anywhere else.

We are very happy that we stayed there and if we ever go back that is where we will stay again.

To be perfectly honest, after reading such excellent reviews I questioned it a few times. Never have I heard such consistently positive feedback about a "hotel", but they all panned out for sure! As soon as we walked in the door we fell in love with the place, and will definitely be returning as soon as life allows. The apartment has everything you could need and is conveniently located withing walking distance to amazing beaches and a few restaurants. Unfortunately many of the restaurants were closed when we visitied during the off season, but it's a great location nonetheless. I absolutely recommend this place to anyone and everyone planning a relaxing, laid back trip to Tortola :)
