Long Bay Beach Club
Ranked #7 of 25 Hotels in Tortola
Reviewed 3 May 2014

Long Bay use to have a pool and a great lobby and bar area. They use to have shops and car rental facilities on site. All that is gone now. They need to tell people that.

On the positive side, the have satellite TV which works all the time. And they now have WiFi on the property.

We had a very small bungalow on the beach. The room needs an update.
But service at the hotel is great and the west end of Tortola is fabulous.

This was a great place to relax and have a drink on the beach. Had all great lunches and dinners in the restaurant right on the beach, how nice it was. Also breakfast there to almost forgot. The menu even changes from day to day, that was nice.

Room Tip: All the rooms are very nice, liked the Cabanas room the most.

We spent 10 days in one of the deluxe suites on the water and enjoyed our stay. The room was equipped with a kitchenette including refrigerator, stove, coffee maker, microwave, ,and toaster. There was a tv that I couldn't get to work, but who needs a tv when you can sit on your deck and watch the waves hit the shore about 20 yards away. It's on a beautiful long beach with the best swimming a few hundred yards up the beach. For calmer waters, we drove a few miles up the road( a very bumpy road) to Smugglers Cove, a beautiful and uncrowded public beach. This resort has had financial problems and the owners have had to make some tough decisions in order to keep the place going, including closing a very large pool across the street. Work on a smaller pool next to the restaurant on the ocean side began while we were there. Many of the units particularly on the other side are owned by individual or timeshares, and these people were disappointed by the financial issues, but to his credit, the manager has a cocktail party for all guest each week so that people can surface issues, etc, We hope all goes well because this is one of the nicest locations in the Caribbean.

We just returned from a vacation at the Long Bay Resort and are glad to report that we had a very enjoyable and comfortable time. The check in was efficient and friendly, and the ocean front delux room we had was very clean but a bit outdated, with plenty of cabinet and dresser space and large shower and dressing area. The beach was just out our door and we had a nice deck wth great view of ocean and near by islands. The 1748 restaurant was very good food with a nice mix of meals from seafood to beef. We found the wait staff to be very friendly and helpful, it seems all it takes is a polite greeting the first time you meet and they will do everything they can to make you comfortable. The resort is very low key and if you are looking for nite time entertainment it is not for you.They started to construct the new pool the day we left and are planning a new pool bar next to it. We had great taxi service from a local driver, named Eric, who also gave us a tour of the Island, and service to and from ferry terminal. We are planning to return net year

Room Tip: Ocean front delux, nice rooms with great view of ocean.

My husband and i recently stayed at this hotel and we had a great time! The beach was amazing and the view just can't be beat! Personally i didn't really care that there wasn't a pool available during our visit. Only a few things that would have made the stay better....having kayak...SUP available for rental on Saturdays would be nice...the rental place at the hotel was closed. WiFi further from the lobby wasn't very good so had to go to the lobby to check emails etc. Most of the staff were great but the restaurant staff was spotty. Some great...some seemed to be put out by your existence.
Were able to go to the reception with the GM during our stay which was a really nice experience.

We stayed at this hotel before, and loved the place. But things have changed. Their pool is closed - and that was a big disappointment. And they are much smaller, with the hilltop villas closed (which is where the pool was). Some staff are friendly, some not. We had lunch and dinner - try the ahi tuna salad - great! I agree with another traveler - the bed was hard. Maybe after the remodel things will be better because the view is beautiful! Perhaps putting the pool info on the web site, or lowering the prices would make it more attractive.

We stayed at long bay the 3rd week of March. We arrived on a Wednesday and were greeted with friendly reception and a delicious rum punch! We were told there would be a reception that night which we attended. They provided drinks and snacks and we had a nice talk with the general manager who was both very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the opportunity to relax and meet some of the other hotel guests. We ate dinner at the hotel restaurant that night. Service at the restaurant was definitely slower than other places on the island and staff at the restaurant is not as friendly as reception but we found the food to be good and it was nice to not have to get a cab for every meal. With faster friendlier service and perhaps a little music to liven up the place we would have stayed here for more meals. Our room was nice! We found things to be clean and the view from the balcony couldn't have been any more perfect! We had an ocean deluxe room. The only complaint we had about the room is the beds are horrible!!! At least the pillows would need to be upgraded before we returned. The pillows were completely flat and in combination with a hard bed it was very difficult to sleep at night! We enjoyed Tortola and using long bay as a "home base" while we took day trips to different BVIs. We loved bananakeet for dinner. Fun atmosphere, amazing views and good food!
