My wife and I just spent a week at Olde Yard Village and we loved it. We actually met people who were staying for a month and we plan to do the same next year we loved the island so much. Our condo was beautiful with all new furniture and the view was great.
The beaches were all about 5 minutes away by car (our favorite was Savannah)! We decided to stay at the hotel one day and the pool was perfect for lounching (it has a bar and a restaurant attached). The fine dining at night at the Baracuda restaurant (right next to the pool) was great....pasta is the best..The chef from New York makes the pasta from scratch each day! We preferred to get our exercise by walking the scenic back roads but there is a small gym on-site that is brand new and airconditioned and tennis courts. According to my wife the spa was small but she was very happy with the manicure she got. The photos on this site do not do this place justice. The photos on the website are more accurate (we think the photos here are pre-rennovation..we were told it has been rennovated over the last year)...now it is so beautiful just like the website photos portray. We've already made our reservation for next year!

We checked out after seeing the hotel location, which sits on the a very noisy (old construction trucks) main road and is not within walking distance of a beach. Virgin Gorda is a small beautiful island and you should choose a beach or waterfront hotel as the rest of the island is just dry scrubland. We moved to the Bitter End Yacht club which was great, but most of the other hotels are also on the water.

We just returned from 10 wonderful days in Virgin Gorda. We stayed at the Olde Yard Village condos and were very pleased with the accommodations there. Beautifully decorated with a wonderful pool and professional tennis court. There is even a restaurant with excellent food and service. A full functioning workout room was also available. We love this island. The people there are phenomenally nice and friendly. The beaches are beautiful and breathtaking. Many times we found that we had the entire beach to ourselves. No-one is there trying to sell you something, or wanting you to pay to have your hair braided. It is really a place where you can totally relax. We didn't want to leave. We've already booked a trip there for next February!

We took our decision to stay at Olde Yard Village down to the wire, trying to decide between there and Nail Bay. We were a wee bit budget-concious, and basically chose OYV for two reasons: 1) Central location, and 2) Expectation of nicely-appointed digs. We got the first, but not the second. Photos and reviews here led us to expect that though the place was not ocean-front and sat on a busy road, the newness of the condos would offset these disadvantages. We expected to walk in the door of the unit and find it nice. It really wasn't very nice. Strange smell from the bathroom, semi-tacky furniture choices, and an overall un-finished feel. The location was very handy, and we took full advantage of it to explore the whole island. Also, the pool area was quite nice.

Service was spotty. Nobody met us at the ferry dock as promised, and when our cab arrived at the office, it was closed (Sunday afternoon at 3:00) with a sticky on the door advising us to call Sandra to let us in. Luckily the cabbie was still there and lent us his phone. Sandra, who failed to return several phone calls and emails during our attempts to book OYV, really couldn't have been much less friendly while checking us in. Same for the woman working at the poolside bar. Truly surly. Everyone else working at the office the ensuing week was pleasant and helpful. Having no phone in the condo is a pain in the rear. We were limited to going into the office to make calls and inquiries about activities, etc., since our cell didn't work there.

All in all I'd say we were disappointed in OYV. The good location couldn't overcome the inconvenience of the phone thing, quasi-tacky furnishings and spotty service.

This was our 12th trip to the Virgin Islands, while our 1st year on Virgin Gorda. We found Olde Yard Village was the perfect spot for our first stay on V.G. Our 2BR unit was nicely appointed. We did make use of the spa as well as the pool after our days at Savannah Bay Beach (an easy 4-5 minute drive from the condo to the beach). We were not bothered by the traffic noise from the street outside our unit at night as we did close the windows and use the A/C due to the eastern exposure of the BR windows and the heat/humidity. We were a bit surprised to learn that the rest. on the property closed @ 3:00pm on weekdays (so we never actually had dinner there, we were still at the beach at that time). This info & the fact that the rest. was not open at all on Mondays (the day we checked in) would have been helpful in our planning. The onsite workout room and laundry facilities are an extra benefit. We found all staff members to be very gracious and helpful in all matters. This property proved to be one of our best values in 12 years of travel to the USVI & BVI during which we have stayed for up to 2 weeks and visited more than 1 property per trip.
