We went to the Sugar Mill for our 20th anniversary vacation trip, and loved it. It was a spur of the moment choice based on a Groupon deal - 4 nights for less than $500. Combine that with frequent flyer plane tickets, and we had a great vacation on the relative cheap. I really liked Tortola, an undeveloped gem next to St Thomas, and an easy puddle hopper trip from San Juan. There are no high rises, and no hordes of touristas. The Sugar Mill is a hotel tucked into a hillside on the north shore of the island with a small beach just across the road. Our room was on top of the hill and large, open, airy, clean and inviting. We had a small ant invasion the first day, but that was our fault for leaving food out on the kitchenette counter. Also, there's no TV in the room, which actually turned out to be a nice omission. Wireless service is available throughout the hotel, and we had our iPad and phones, so we really didn't miss the TV at all. My only issue with the room was that there was a big palm tree right I front of the window, blocking off the fabulous view. I would recommend asking for a room with an unobstructed view. But, sunsets from the restaurant terrace were spectacular. The staff was great - friendly, helpful, and always available. Most of the employees have been with the hotel for over 20 years. Lastly, the hotel restaurant is one of the best on the island with menu selections changing every night. If you weren't motivated to go out for dinner, the easy choice left nothing to be desired. I am keeping an eye on the groupon deals hoping for an excuse to go back. This is a great place for taking some time to slow down and catch a deep breath. Highly recommended.
