“A fantastic, relaxing and romantic home away from home in paradise”
Reviewed 1 July 2009

This hotel is relaxing, comfortable and all you could want in a laid-back resort in Tortola. There is always space on the beach or at the pool...no competition for beach chairs and there is always a place under a tree to find shade. The natural beauty of the island has been lovingly maintained in the building of the resort. Trees and landscaping are integrated into the buildings and provide a real island feel. The beach is small but the view is incredible...St. John is directly across from the resort.

The service is great...all of the staff are friendly, nice, helpful and eager to please. Guests are accomodated with all requests to the best of the staff's ability. Service is given with a smile and is very quick.

The rooms are very quaint and beautifully decorated. We loved our room in the older villas. It had an old island charm and was very comfortable. We had a full kitchen and were able to enjoy some meals in our room, which really is very relaxing and saves some money. The rooms in the newer villas are wonderfully done and luxuriously beautiful.

The hotel's location on the West End is very convenient to many good restaurants and activities. You do need a car to get around. Taxi's are readily available but they are expensive. We would recommend Pusser's, Jolly Roger Inn and the Sugar Mill for dinner. Great local seafood is available at all.

The hotel's own restaurant is great as well. The food is nicely prepared and fresh. We had many wonderful meals right on sight. They will deliver your dinner to your villa for an additional charge, which is a nice option for a romantic dinner.

There is a spa on site...massages are fantastic and well worth the time and money.

The best thing about this hotel is that guests can do what they want at their own pace. It is very quiet so there is plenty of relaxation available. When you're ready, you can take a car to one of the many restaurants and other beaches. Cane Garden Bay has a great beach and the clearest water we have ever seen and we have travelled all over the Caribbean.

The island had a lot of rain before we were there so the bugs were out everywhere. Bring bug repellent. The hotel tries hard to take care of the bugs and has bug repellent available but you need it everywhere you go on the island.

We planned our wedding in a place we had never been.. or understood very well. We came to Fort Recovery excited but unsure of the events to take place. But Pamelah & Anita, along with the staff welcomed us and made us feel right at home. Pamelah and I had been in communication long before we arrived and was extremely attentive. Thank God! I would've been lost without her and our travel agent. Once we arrived we felt that we didn't have to do a thing. Just be there and roam the island. The staff was very pleasant, Pamelah was there whenever I needed her, and beyond. The wedding was perfectly arranged and attended by Pamelah and Ivet (a lovely staff member & our witness) followed by a sunset dinner and complimentary bottle of wine. I couldn't of asked have more. We felt like we had entered our own little world and it was the hardest time leaving. We are going to definitely be back to this lovely Fort Recovery. We just can't help ourselves! =D

We spent 10 days at Fort Recovery. The location is very convenient to drive or rent a taxi to many other beaches and restuarants on the island. We have stayed at another larger resort on the island but will return to Fort Recovery for the great staff, location, beautiful new villas and laid-back atmosphere. The personal attention from Pamelah, Anita and all of the staff was excellent. If you like very clean rooms and relaxtion with excellent views please check out this resort.

What a wonderful week we just experienced at Fort Recovery! It was exactly what my husband and I were looking for to decompress and get in the Island Spirit prior to a week of sailing with our family to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary in the BVI's. Pamelah and Anita were very welcoming, helpful and accommodating to us during our week's stay. Our one bedroom villa was in the newer building and we loved it! It was spacious, well appointed and beautifully decorated. After a very short time there, it felt like home. My husband was able to work, having the AT&T tower across the water in St John, giving him an excellent wireless connection! I enjoyed the quiet/beautiful grounds the beach, the exercise room and my short walks to a great food market for snacks and lunch items. The full American breakfasts offered here were delicious and always served with fresh fruit! We enjoyed four nights of wonderful dinner selections and excellent desserts! We toured the island of Tortolla with a car provided to us by the resort several days during our stay, heading over to Smuggler's Cove, Cane Garden Bay and Road Town. The road's here are not for the faint of heart, driving on the left with tight hair pin curves and over the hills! The views are spectacular...

We highly recommend Fort Recovery if you are looking to be in a very quiet, special place with natural beauty and fantastic views all around you!

We just got back from a stay at Fort Recovery and we're ready to go back. Everything was great at the resort. Our villa right on the beach was amazing. We sat out on our deck everynight an listened to the waves. Everyone at the resort was extremely helpful and went out of there way to help us. Pamelah, Anita, and Matt did everything they could to help us out with anything we needed. We did have some trouble with Hertz (don't rent from them - they rent out horrible cars infested with ants and the customer service was the worst I've ever seen. I'm still fighting with them for compensation). Pamelah gave us the hotel rental and then when we had to leave the resort, Matt gave us a ride to the ferry in Road Town. Again, they went out of their way to help us. The location of the resort was great. Only a 5 minute drive to Sopers Hole for restaurants and day charters. And only a 10 minute drive over the Long Bay, Smugglers Cove, and Bombas Shak. We would definitely return to Ft. Recovery and not hesitate in recommending it anyone who wants a relaxing vacation on a quiet beach with excellent customer service.

Fort Recovery -- Bravo on great service, great accomodations, great food, and great people at the resort! The new villas are exquisite and very complimentary to the environment, which even if one tried as hard as Anita (the owner) does, you can’t outdo Mother Nature. It took us a day to unwind, but that’s not difficult--the warm ocean breeze (which is constant) will carry all your troubles away. The people were great (from Pamelah and Matt in the office to Anita, the owner, who answered all our questions and cared so much that we were havin a great time). The restaurant was awesome and I became addicted to their full American Breakfast, especially the Eggs Benedict. I got one of my best massages there. Pamelah (the office manager extraordinaire) could not have been nicer. We did most of the arrangements by computer, and she was on the button for what we were looking for.
The swimming and snorkeling was great on the boat trip that we took and really could not be better, and the system they have for telephones (at much cheaper rates) is not only an economical boon but we are able to contact each other, feeling comfortable that one can communicate easily. Coming back to our “digs”, which made us feel special because of its fantastic views and really beautifully appointed furnishings (so many wonderful books to read--and the books were in great condition too), was the icing on the cake – Thank you Trip Advisor. We’ll be looking for other recommendations for our next trip to India in October.

I am a true member of Trip Advisor, we swear by your program. I have had very successful travel experiences as a result of being a member. One of the places that was highly recommended to us was a hotel located in the British Virgin Islands named Fort Recovery. My husband and I travel extensively and do not have any children with needs to be satisfied. We recently saw a bad review which ordinarily we would just dismiss. The last two reviews complaining about the maintenance and bad service seemed to us were completely unjustified. We have revisited Fort Recovery four times in the past three years (our most recent trip was in May, 2009), and not once did we find the place anything but top quality. I don’t know which suite they were talking about but being in four of them has never failed us. It is truly a bit of heaven. Well perhaps people will find out for themselves; however we are booked for the end of July for the festival down there. If there is something negative I will definitely report it, but so far please let Fort Recovery stay as sweet as they are. Special praise goes to Anita, Pamelah, and Matt--all of whom made me and my hubby feel like we were members of their family.
