I have just returned from a 17 day holiday to Virgin Gorda staying at Fischer's Cove the whole stay. Myself, husband and 5 year old boy all had a fantastic time. We stayed in a lovely rustic Garden Cottage which was 50 paces from the beach, which we loved. We used the beach some days or may be just for a couple of hours my son loved the sand and the sea which was generally ok for swimming for him. If you want calm seas Savannah Bay is amazing like a swimming pool and so clear and warm and just $10 by taxi for 2 to get to. However Spring Bay was his and our favourite bay $8 by taxi. Spanish Town the marina and supermarket is a 10 minute walk so great to get food.
Accommodation is basic but the price reflects that. The rooms are cleaned everyday, new towels etc.. the cleaners were lovely and left fresh flowers in conch shells which made it very special. We had just a fan in our room, you can get hot in the night but while it was snowing at home we felt lucky we had the heat! The kitchen area is basic with no real extras like a kettle and just 2 forks, 2 knives etc.. you need matches for cooker, dish cloth, salt pepper, washing up liquid just so you know.
Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. Wayne is a star and the ladies at reception helpful. Nice to be prepared for the not so friendly other reception lady people talk about, you get use to it and don't take things personally as its just her nature. A lot of things are laid back on VG but we needed a Taxi at 4.30am the day after Carnival. The Hotel booked it for us and they rechecked the evening before with the driver. To our relief John turned up, we would have missed the 5am ferry and then our flights if he hadn't come so we were glad the important things still get done and that you can rely on the Hotel.
The noise at night from bars around did get a little noisy at times. However, for peoples information we stayed there during Easter Carnival which is BIG on Virgin Gorda locals come from other islands and just have a great time. The music is very local with the classic heavy bass they pump it out from everywhere and much louder than at any other time whilst we were there. The music basically went on for 24hours. From midnight to 8am being the worst this was on the Sunday night Monday morning.
If you want a low key, local look at life on an unspoilt beautiful island then this is the place, we loved it!
