Our room was very comfortable with a lovely balcony overlooking the ocean. The sound of the surf and the evening frog chorus was music from heaven for me. My wife and I spent a lit of time on the balcony enjoying the sunsets and watching the pelicans dive for fish. We spent seven days there and had purchased their adventure package and enjoyed four delightful meals in their restaurant as part of the package. We also had many breakfast there and especially enjoyed their French Toast with rum soaked apple topping. The restaurant service was tops (we enjoyed their Thanksgiving dinner). Their pool is large and attractive and I am guilty of enjoying a lot of hammock time on our balcony.
So come and enjoy the laid back and friendly folks of the BVIs. Thanks for a wonderful vacation.
The TV was acceptable but really needed a DVD player with movies available as the available programs seem to be all advertisements. There is lots of reading material available.
The beach across the road is exclusive for hotel guests and has a sheltered gazebo that serves drinks and lunches. The beach is fine for sunning and the swimming is ok provided there is not a lot of surf. We went to Brewers Bay ( few exciting miles away by car) for snorkeling, but the best snorkeling is by going on a day sailing package. We also went to swim with the porpoise and had a super time there. I should mention that my wife and I are both in our seventies. The only downside of our vacation was the rainy weather and high surf and arranging transportation from St. Thomas-don't trust the published ferry service schedule (especially late afternoon). I suggest you call first.
