“so happy we stayed here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2014

Rhymers is clean and basic. The air conditioner worked and we had plenty of hot water and towels. Having a fridge in the room is great and you can get ice at the barf. The staff is friendly and helpful. Our room was at the back and very quiet, and a few steps away is a gorgeous beach. Downstairs the open air restaurant serves good food and drinks and the coffee was always ready before 8am. We are very happy we stayed here and we will return. Best vacaction in years.

Room Tip: The rooms at the back seem to be quieter, but closer to the beach and the roof deck will give you a...

We stayed at Rhymers right after Christmas for 4 nights. It wasn't long enough! My review is pretty consistent with the others. This hotel is no frills, outdated, but clean and safe. Rooms are up and store/restaurant are down. When you walk outside, you are literally on the sand! This is what we wanted for our vacation - walk right out onto the beach. Lynette in the office is so nice, she can help with calling a taxi, offer advice for excursions, etc. This is a gorgeous stretch of beach with 5-6 restaurants and bars along it. We had lunch and dinner at different places every day, but always had breakfast at Rhymers. As a guest you get 2 beach chairs included. I would definitely return to Rhymers as you are treated like family and it's so relaxing! The kitchenette in the room is nice, you can keep snacks and drinks in the fridge and then take them down to the beach. Take everyone's advice, if you want the Ritz then don't stay here. It costs so much to fly to Tortola then ferry, taxi, etc - I wanted a clean, basic room - you aren't in the room much anyway! Friendly service and great food and drinks - go and chill and enjoy yourself!!

Room Tip: Room 22 - it's at the beach front end of the hall. You walk right out onto the huge balcony/pati...

This place is no frills, but the location couldn't be better. Before EVERY sailing charter, I make sure to spend a couple of days at Rhymers.

The staff is fantastic, the drinks are great, and you can even do your laundry downstairs!

If you have your nose in the air and insist on only staying at 5 star resorts, this place isn't for you. But, if you want untouchable value and a staff who remembers your name even after a couple of years, look no farther.

Room Tip: Try to get on the beach side of the upstairs, away from the street.

I have stayed at Rymers SEVERAL times & love it each & every time! The staff are WONDERFUL & treat my husband & I like family!!!! We hadn't been back in a couple of years until this Nov and it was like no time had passed at all! The rooms are upstairs & downstairs has a little store, restaurant & bar. The food is GREAT at the restaurant & I'm craving conch fritters as we speak! The rooms have little kitchenettes so we would buy snacks to keep in the room. We ate the BEST, most juiciest avocados I've ever had right there in Cane Garden Bay!!! Such a great little gem - our secret hiding place! Can't wait to get back soon!!!!

I loved my stay at Rhymer's, you just walk out to the beach. Although there isn't a lot to do unless you go to Roadtown, it was perfect for me or one who leads a "bit too hectic" life and wants some serious chill time. The staff is SUPER!! Definitely on my "return" list.
There's also a beautiful porch to watch the sun rise and/or set~

I last stayed at Rhymers 16 years ago and found, when I returned last July, that it had changed very little - a lick of paint at best. But then who wants Rhymers to change, its an institution loved by those of us who merely need a good clean bed and a great beach experience. Sure with a little bit of effort the place could be improved considerably but then it would lose its charm.
Recommended to those who do not want the Ritz but who want something just a little bit different - and do not whinge everytime things do not work quite as intended. Its a place to go with the flow at.

Room Tip: Try for a room near the front (beach) balcony
