Ok, this not the Ritz or some fancy smancy hotel in New York or Miami. It is small and quaint. The rooms were clean and simple.
The honeymoon suite was nice but we had to move because the A/C didn't cool it like we thought it should. Allison, Beverly, Prudence and Malcolm were all great, went out of their way to help. Breakfasts were excellent and we had them cook us some fish we caught one night for dinner which was also excellent.
When you have only a few guests you can't have full menu all the time. I do have to agree the pool sucked and a few things could have been upgraded but overall its a nice place to kick back and relax. Brewers Bay is one of the best beaches around, snorkeling is fair and the beach is clean and uncrowded.
Nicoles is a great place to drink and eat burgers. If you like crowds and noise and fancy smancy you need to go somewhere else.

We went to Icis Villas and left the same day - this place is very misrepresented on their website and brochure. The photos shown in their ads must be from at least 10 years ago. No maintenance has been done since then evidently. The owner was extrememly rude and would not listen to our disatisfaction. We were killing palmetto bugs in our room, the wooden walkway looks like our old dock and the pool was terrible - sand, algae and unclean. You could NOT go in the pool. It is far from the beach and Brewers bay is the worst - unclean beach on Tortola with a "squatters" campground that is a urine cesspool. Icis villas seemed very unsafe - no in room safes, our connecting door looked like it had been bust in and they had to try 3 keys until one fit our front door. Unbelievablely horrible! Do not stay at Icis! We went to the BVI tourist board the next day and filed a complaint - BVI tourist board said"they had had trouble with Icis villas before" Our agent described an incident with his own family staying at Icis when the pool was extremely unclean. The grounds are overgrown and unkept. The manager told us "if the chef shows up, we will take dinner reservations at 3". The remote location and lack of staff and service made a stay here impossible - we left for good - perhaps loosing money - 2 day nonrefundable deposit. We will never go to Icis and suggest you stay away!!!

We (parents and two twelve year olds) just returned from Spring Break. We spent Easter weekend at Icis Villas, Tortola, and were pleased.
The rooms are nicely appointed and very clean. The grounds are beautiful and the staff extremely pleasant.
The Villas sit a short (less than 5 minute) walk from the beach on a paved driveway.
I recommend the Villas if you are looking for a quiet stay near a beautiful, uncrowded beach. Cabs cost only cost $6 per person from Road Town, but be warned that the drive is one of the most steep on the Island.

We stayed at Icis Villas for one week in mid February 2007. It is located in Brewer's Bay along the North shore just above Cane Garden Bay. While the location is a bit hard to get to, once you get the lay of the land it's really a very convenient location. Close to Ridge Road and a short distance from other bays and beaches with good snorkeling. If you come in late at night be sure to take a cab from the airport to begin with.
It is in a beautiful setting - lots of lush landscaping and flowering trees and bushes. The pool is very small but adequate. It is a very short walk to the beach. Nicole's Beach Bar at the entrance to Brewer's Bay Beach let's Icis Villa residents use the beach chairs for free. Accomodations are pretty basic. We travelled with another couple and were in a two bedroom suite. Bedrooms had AC but the living area did not. We were told that the room had hair dryers or maybe it was just one in the main bathroom attached to the wall making it a little difficult to share - just a little in convenient.
Breakfast was a true continental - bread, fruit, coffee, tea, juice but short order items were available for a small charge. Icis doesn't have a restaurant but will serve dinner by request. We took advantage of this one night after we had been out all day. The food was fabulous - we all had Mahi Mahi. The service was excellent. Beverly and Malcom (I think) made us feel very special . It wasn't all that expensive and was a great treat.
Allison the manager couldn't have been more helpful. We had some issues with luggage the first night and she really helped us navigate the system and resolve the problem quickly. She was also very helpful in pointing out some of the best excursions that would help us maximize our time on the island.
Everyone from Carlton the cab driver to the receptionist in the law office which is on site was extremely helpful and friendly.
Only note of caution - don't try to sleep with your windows open there are sueling roosters that begin to crow at 3:30 in the morning and keep it up until about 4 in the afternoon. If this bothers you you might want to look elsewhere. Also, we didn't have a big problem with mosquitos like we saw in other areas - I think the number of lizards here must keep them under control. We would certainly stay here again on our next trip to Tortola.

Situated near a great beach (Brewers Bay) this place was quiet (except for roosters if that bothers you), clean and super friendly. Onsite restaurant and beach bar makes it a place you can retreat to and not have to leave until you want a change of scenery.
