“Great trip - second time around”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

My husband and I visited PI for the second time Oct 18 - 26, 2013. This time celebrating our 24th wedding anniversary and my 52nd birthday. Just like our first visit, the staff is amazingly friendly and helpful and we totally and completely relaxed our minds and bodies.

We had some odd experiences this time though. Apparently, we were booked in an ocean view room that was determined by the property engineer to be "out of commission" as there was a leak from the bathroom above us that dripped down into our bathroom. We discovered the leak after our second night. When we made the management aware of the leak, the staff promptly moved us to a habitable room. While in the new room, one of the staff and a newly arrived guest walked right in on us while we were lounging. My guess is that the system hadn't been updated notifying the staff that the room was occupied.

Prior to dinner the evening of the move to the new room, we had just ordered a brilliant bottle of wine at Drake's Lounge when the manager on duty, Jenefer - a lovely woman - stopped by to introduce herself and ask how our trip was going. We explained to her the oddities of the day. One minute later the general manager, Wilbert, was at our side asking about our stay. He couldn't have been more kind and apologetic to our experience and then comped us our expensive bottle of wine. That was a very generous thing to do!

From what we had overheard from some of the other guests, the ocean view rooms are going to be completely renovated in 2014. Quite frankly, they could use a refresher. But like most people, we are pretty much only in the room to sleep so we weren't too bothered by that.

If you go, do take advantage of the wine pairing dinner with Rimple. The food and wine selections were delicious! Rimple is an amazing person who's passion is wine and food. His other passion is sharing his passion with others. You will love this man. He's relatively new at PI but he's there for a reason which is to make the guests' food and bevie experience the best the resort can offer. He has great plans for guest dining and wine options. You go Rimple!!! Hope to see you in Chicago soon.

Another awesome experience was our 1/2 day snorkel trip with Jason and Lindsay, owners of the 51' resort sailboat Silmaril. Jason is a master seaman and Lindsay is an amazing teacher of the ocean's sea life among many other notables. Unlike typical snorkel trips in which the guides give you snorkel gear and basically kick you off the boat and you're on your own, Lindsay got into the water with us and was our personal snorkel guide. She spotted some amazing fish and coral we most definately would have overlooked. She would dive deep and bring amazing sea life to the surface for us to see up close and in some cases actually touch. I highly recommend spending 1/2 or full day with this wonderful, knowledgeable couple. You will not be disappointed

All in all, our week on Peter Island was fantastic. I know Rimple is in the process of changing up the wine selction to add some more affordable and unique wines as well as planning to add some dining options at Drake's Lounge bar i.e "small plates".

My husband and I will definately return to Peter Island although we may wait until the ocean view rooms have been renovated.

We miss you all. Until next time! Rimple, Captain, Veronica, Jean, Lema, Claudia, Wilbert and so many more who's names are escaping me at the moment.

We have just returned from our first visit to Peter Island Resort. The purpose of our trip was to get married and we did the four day Island Romance package. We simply can't say enough for Peter Island (PI). The privacy, the beauty, the seclusion, the wonderful people you meet are only surpassed by the staff that work there. Seriously, we cannot recommend PI highly enough. Our trip started in Tortola where we were greeted by Edward Nightingale (Food and Beverage Director at PI) who was our wedding coordinator. Edward took us through everything and made it so easy and accompanied us to PI from Tortola. We were warmly greeted by every staff member at the PI ferry and made friends with many staff members on the ferry ride over that made our stay even more pleasant.

Activities are available if you want, or you can simply enjoy complete seclusion. It's completely up to you. We chose times to be by ourselves and times to meet other guests. We treasure the friendships we developed with other guests and the staff.

The Vintners Dinner with Rimple was excellent and highly recommended, our private beach dinner was made even more wonderful by Maxine's attentiveness and the spa is everything everybody says it is and is not to be missed (well worth the money to do a couples massage in a Bohio – ask for the one at the end). What would we tell someone considering PI? You will love it and the staff will ensure you do. Reserve Honeymoon Beach early (the beach that is reserved exclusively for one couple per half day) — even before you arrive. Do the Vintner Dinner, ask Captain what you should have at the bar, go to White Bay Beach (ask for a cooler and ice with drinks you can take with you), meet Jean Kelly and have the coconut french toast named after her, be prepared to eat wonderfully good meals and meet great and interesting people.

We are already planning our anniversary trip back – seriously, it's like going back to family, it's unlike any other place we have ever been.

Room Tip: We were in 116, convenient to Drakes Lounge and TradeWinds. I heard a room out further along the po...

Stay in the beach front section. The second floor units have huge decks and great views.
Make sure to take along bug spray for the "no see ums" mosquito's this time of year. Don't miss the evening sunset "ceremony" at the top of the hill. The French Toast at breakfast is incredable.

Room Tip: All the beachfront rooms have huge bathrooms with large spa's for 2.

The staff makes the place, its a beautiful resort and great beaches and delicious food. But the most important for me is the wonderful , helpful, loving and sincere staff that Peter Island has, I've been going there for a very long time, I've seen a lot of changes, but one thing that hasn't change is the Staff, they will go out of the way for every guest, welcoming with open arms and a big smile.
I can go on and on, but just read the reviews, Beautiful beaches, fantastic staff, delicious food, and great drinks :-)
They meet you at the airport with a smile and greet you by name, they take care of your luggage till you get to your room. From the airport they drive you to a private boat, they greet you as soon as you get off the boat with a nice cool towel and a nice Island Drink they drive you to you room. It's paradise, the Spa is amazing all the staff is wonderful, I normally have Kari and Raja for my Spa services.
What can I say I love Peter Island and the wonderful loving Staff.

Room Tip: I like 115-116 it's right in the middle of the resort you can see everything, White Bay is a pr...

We just spent a week on Peter Island for our honeymoon, and it was an absolutely amazing experience. The island is gorgeous, and the resort is so hospitable and relaxing. We loved the beaches and tropical drinks, and the spa was amazing. The main beach (Deadman's) is perfect, and the other beaches provide an opportunity to have more privacy (and a picnic lunch!). The spa is serene and after a treatment, we enjoyed the intimate terrace and hot tub that are literally perched in front of a breathtaking seascape.

The service was so helpful and courteous, and the accommodations were modest but beautiful and exactly what we needed. We loved the managers cocktail party and the steel drum band that played.

Peter island was absolutely perfect for our honeymoon and we will definitely be back!

Everything that every other five star review said is correct. This place is bliss, nothing less. We went here because we wanted an island escape that truly was an escape. I've been to a few other Caribbean islands and this place stands alone. No vendors on street corners trying to sell you something. No agitated locals who are sick of tourists coming to their towns (frankly, who can blame them?). No crowds. No traffic. No ... stress. Just bliss. Friendly staff. Complete peace and quiet. Extraordinary food. Beaches to die for.

Go. Now.
