“Heaven on earth”
Reviewed 30 March 2014 via mobile

I have travelled the world and this is truly one of the most beautiful places. The whole staff are the friendliest and nicest people you have ever met. The food is delicious in all the restaurants. The tennis and gym facilities are amazing. The bay and all the activities (snorkeling with turtles, sailing, kayaks, paddle boards etc...) are the best I have ever seen at a hotel. The spa was just incredible. You will be hooked at Little Dix. This is our third time back since our kids were 9 years old, and it only gets better for our family and now two teenagers. It is really a very special place that has done a beautiful job maintaining the history and simplicity of what Little Dix Bay and the Caribbean is and should be all about. Please don't change anything Little Dix! We look forward to coming back especially with future generations!

Spring break at LBD was just perfect. The beach is beautiful and the beach drops offer even more peace and quiet. Every meal we had was excellent from a la carte at the Sugar Mill to the various theme dinners at the Pavilion, there was high quality and variety. Wine list is good and the service is exceptional. Leon the tennis pro is perhaps the hardest working man at the resort. We played with him every day and had a great time. Importantly, the other guests all seemed to be nice, respectful people which made for a very nice environment. So many attractive and social families. I wish we had time to meet them all. Wife loved the spa.

My husband and I just returned from Little Dix Bay where we spent a week celebrating our "babymoon." Friends had highly recommended the resort, but LDB exceeded our expectations! From the smoothie bar at breakfast to the pristine beach to our room just footsteps away from the ocean, we had such an incredible week! The staff were so lovely and always asking about our baby. The spa is incredible and the daily excursions and activities are well planned and fun. We'll definitely be coming back to LDB for years to come!

Room Tip: Some rooms are located quite far from the main pavilion. If you have accessibility issues, you shoul...

We spent 4 days at Caneel Bay (St. John) and 4 days at Little Dix Bay (Virgin Gorda) -- both Rosewood properties. Our accommodations at LDB were much nicer. LDB beach drops are nice and there are 2 excellent hiking trails from the property. Sense Spa (on property) is AMAZING. The closest town to LDB (Spanish Town) doesn't have much to offer. Although Coco Maya is a very nice tapas-style beachfront restaurant. My only very minor complaint about LDB would be that there are few a la carte dining options. That said, I'd highly recommend this resort.

Room Tip: The "Junior Suite" at LDB is AWESOME! These are the newest rooms on the property.

My wife and I made our 4th annual trip back to this little paradise resort on Virgin Gorda. Our trip was made a bit more difficult, due to American Eagle no longer flying from San Juan to Tortola. So, we had to make due with a late afternoon arrival. We arrived in tortola, and as usual a friendly face was awaiting to take us and our bags to the boat. And as usual, we completed the sign in while sipping rum punch on our way to LDB. The boat ride from Tortola to LDB is a great way to get into full relaxation mood. Anyway, as usual, the weather was perfect. The staff was great. The food was great. The only thing that was bad was that the time went by too quickly. Before we knew it, it was time to head back home to reality. Yes, the price went up a bit. But, we still had a great time. A room footsteps off the beach, torchlit dinners, Lobster night, relaxing spa treatments, beach dropoffs are all great. But, simply floating on a mat in the bay, or sitting under a pomfrond hut reading my kindle are great ways to experience the true beauty of LDB.

One night, after Lobster night was just ending the power went out in the entire resort. Nobody, and I mean nobody panicked. They made sure everyone was ok. I was sitting at the bar and offered to help drink all of the beer before it got warm (I'm always thinking of others). There was a cool breeze that night, so we kept the doors open in our room. And the power was restored within 12 hours to most of the resort. But to my point, nobody let it bother them. We were in paradise, and simply went out to the beach and enjoyed paradise.

This trip we actually decided to run up the winding roads that lead up to the condos. Great views, and a killer hill workout. We never left the resort, except a sunset cruise and a dropoff @ Saba Rock...gotta love those Painkillers!

As always, its nice to see the same familiar faces every year like Jimmy, Clinton, Monique, Venita, Captain Kodak and many others that I am unintentionally leaving out due to a brain fart. A hotel staff can make or break a guests stay. And the staff really performed well during the power outage, and as a result the guests were able to remain relaxed. Relaxation, after all, is the main reason my wife and I keep returning.

I recently spent a week here with two friends and two of our seven year olds. It was a girls trip... A tropical dream trip. Here are my thoughts...
-We rented a villa with a pool-- great choice especially if you have children. Everything you need is in the villa.. Laundry room, full kitchen. They stocked the fridge for us.
-Location--excellent. It is about 2 min from the harbor. We chartered a sailboat through La Boheme Charters.. Excellent day and highly recommend.. They are great with children.
Kids camp-- excellent; it is a well thought out room that apparently a teacher planned.
Food-- very good food; the Monday night buffet was amazing.
-Staff-- very kind,very attentive; not nosey or in your face.
-Beach-- magical with great water activities
-Spa-- a must
-golf carts-- probably need replacing but they do get you from point A to B.

When people complain of the price I have to laugh... It is no secret when you book it Well worth it if you can comfortably afford it.

Overall it was amazing.. A great family or couples resort.

Just returned from another fabulous visit to LDB! The resort once again exceeded our expectations for hospitality. The staff is so friendly and helpful, from the time we were met at the airport, we felt like we were "home" again. The room was clean and comfortable, housekeeping is terrific. The breakfasts were a daily treat, especially having that first cup of coffee looking out over the Caribbean, the dining room staff never had to be asked to seat us as close to the water as possible. Dinners were good, we had one of the nicest Valentine's Day dinners ever in the Sugar Mill. It was really wonderful to have more live music in the evenings than in past years. The Beach Restaurant has its own "live entertainment", it was the frequent observation of Sea Turtles! Also, while we tend to do MAP (for the convenience), it was nice to note that the resort allows one to change the selected meal plan once during the stay, which we took advantage of and were able to try the fabulous and nearby Coco Maya Restaurant.
The excursions were just as terrific as in years past, with a couple of special highlights. One was the Spring Bay picnic on Thursdays which includes a Steel Drum band as well as delicious BarBQ on the beach. Our favorite excursion, the Norman Island snorkeling excursion was made even better this year by the addition of Sean to the trip. He led us around the various stops we made and pointed out and named the beautiful fish we were seeing (including a Barracuda!) as we snorkeled. The trip generally ends in lunch at the famous floating bar/restaurant, Willie T's. The great food and atmosphere are not to be missed. Also fun is the Sunset cruise.
Only used the Spa for a much needed manicure, it was so relaxing, being pampered while watching the water. The fitness center is small but well equipped and the option to have some personal training seemed very popular while we were there. As usual, the tennis courts were busy throughout our stay.
Have been to multiple places in the Caribbean over the years and we keep coming back to LDB for the perfect mix of romantic, relaxing, friendly and luxurious to complement the most beautiful place on earth. Can't wait to return next year!

Room Tip: Check out the new TreeTop Suites! Lovely renovation
