Based on the recommendation of American friends who had been trying, for many years, to encourage us to visit Tortola and, in paraticular, The Sugar Mill Hotel, we eventually made it! (For British visitors - via Antigua) The setting is a delight and, from our pool suite, we woke to a stunning view every morning. The rooms are beautifully cleaned and the lush grounds full of exotic flowers, shrubs and trees are well maintained but allow the individual rooms/cottages to feel secluded in their tropical setting.
We had chosen the seven day adventure package which seemed to provide the best value after very expensive travel from the UK.
Breakfast is taken in a dining room overlooking the ocean and the hotel's sandy beach, so you can start the day watching pelicans diving! The hotel's beach is small but more than adequate for the hotel's clients - loungers are provided as are bathing towels. There is a beach restaurant that serves a good selection of lunch time meals and drinks. Dinner is served in a more formal setting of the beautiful old stone "mill". The menu changes daily (sign in for dinner each morning) As well as good food there is an excellent wine list.
The bar serves a wide range of cocktails.
The staff are a joy and the welcome is warm and friendly. If we were nearer we would not hesitate to return
