“Brand new beautiful condo's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2006

We stayed at Olde Yard for 9 days for our honeymoon. The condo was great, very clean and brand new. The Sip N Dip restaurant had some of the best food on the island, the pool was great and it's really close to Savannah Bay which is the best beach. The only complaint is that it's not run very well, we had to constantly hound the front desk girl to get everything we were entitled too in our "Not just for honeymooners" package, which was a little disappointing. The place is definitely nice though and a good deal for what you get.

My two children (9 and 11) and I loved Olde Yard Village, where we stayed April 17-24. If you want to be pampered and waited on and surrounded by lots of people and action, go to Bitter End or Little Dix (and waste your money). However, if you're an independent traveler and want a spacious, well-appointed condo in a central location, this is an excellent place. Our condo had a king-sized bed, a pull-out bed, and a futon; a full kitchen; a nice bathroom; and a lovely porch overlooking the sea. The bar/restaurant and big pool are frequented by many locals, adults and kids alike, making you feel like an islander, not a tourist. My kids played for hours with several local kids. I talked to many other guests--families, couples, and condo owners--and everyone was very pleased with OYV. One couple checked out some rooms at Biras Creek, which is extremely expensive, and said their place at OYV was much nicer. The front-desk staff will cheerfully help with all requests, but again, this is not a place where you're waited on. I have visited about 15 islands, and Virgin Gorda is the best, and OYV is the place to stay. I have only two quibbles: one, there are no phones in the rooms (although guests can use a phone in the office), and two, although my package included transfer from the ferry dock to OYV, due to a miscommunication (our ferry connection changed a few days before our arrival), we weren't met at the dock with our rental car, took a taxi to OYV, and weren't compensated for the $8 fare--but I wasn't going to make a fuss over $8. I highly recommend Olde Yard Village! It's a great place for people who like to do their own thing. OYV is definitely a well-kept secret on Virgin Gorda!

Highly recommend this to even the most demanding tourist.

Very nice furnishings (3 TVs in a 2 bedroom suite) and kitchen was top notch (glass top stove, ice maker in refridgerator, etc.). Overall, very classy.

Only a 2 minute drive to the nicest beach on the island (Savanah Bay Beach) which has white sand until the water is over your head, some shade areas, and excellent snorkeling (some can be done while standing, so it is great for beginners).

The manager made car renting very easy and had good recommendations for restaurants and beaches.

It felt like your own vacation home (if your rich aunt died), not like a hotel.

They are currently doing construction, but I only noticed this when driving out of the parking lot. There was no noise at all.

The gardens are maintained well.

The only downside is that you can't walk from your suite to a chair on the beach. But as mentioned above, you can rent a car and take a 2 minute ride. Also, the restaurant is currently closed, so you need a designated driver (or a taxi) if both you and your mate want to have more than a couple of drinks at a bar.
