“Return to paradise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2012

This was our second visit to Long Bay Beach resort, and it was even better than I remembered it to be. We took a beachfront cabana room this time (last time was the hillside ocean view) and although both were clean and with full amenities, I think it's my personal preference to be so close to the water. Although I had planned to spend more time at the fitness centre (to counter some of the effects of the magnificent deserts on offer) I decided that calories consumed while on holiday don't really count and just indulged without repenting. My husband particularly enjoyed the casual 1748. The service wasn't as fast as it could have been, but the local dishes on offer made it well worth the wait. Be sure to make reservations for the Pasta house, the first time we went there we unfortunately got turned away as we hadn't made ours, but we got it sorted for the next night. The great food and romantic atmosphere are not to be missed.

Other than the unfriendly service and the sorry shower, there is nothing wrong with Long Bay. It is located near smugglers cove and sopers hole. They have a decent pool and tennis courts. We atayed 2 nights in a studio and felt our experience was "ok". We spent less money on better places in the BVIs. If we came for 7 nights, we'd be more dissatisfied with our experience. The beach is beautiful but management did not condone swimming. The surf is rough and rocks are all over. The resort, itself, is understaffed and a bit unfriendly. Whatever you do, do not eat at their restaurant Pasta House 1748. It was the worst service of our entire lives. I got up repeatedly to fill our own water glasses and we were going to order dessert but no one came by for 45 minutes. We left laughing at the whole situation an left a note with our room number so they could just deal with it later. It was so pathetic, i actually feel bad writing about it. Just dont go there and you'll be better for it.

My wife and I returned for our 20th stay at Long Bay Hotel, Tortola. We had a wonderful time and enjoy the great location, clean rooms, and helpful staff. It was the 26th annual Plastic Surgery Workshop BVI, and the hotel did a terrifc job in accommodating all of our wishes. We recommend most highly this resort for a quiet and beautiful vacation.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the beach directly--a wonderful experience

Before going I saw the comments regarding the beach and can't believe anyone would complain the main part of the beach is beautiful sand but when you enter the water it is somewhat rocky. however just walking hundred feet in either direction and it is sand all the way out into the ocean. It is one of the most spectacular beaches in the Caribbean. Nature boy has a stand on one end that is particularly beautiful. the restaurant on the resort is expensive but very good, particularly the breakfast.
The staff goes out of their way to provide every request.when I called for ice it arrived as I hung up the phone!
originally we booked a hillside deluxe, but when we saw the cabanas on the beach we switch staying right on the ocean. the rooms were a bit more rustic but who cared?

My fiance and I had a fastastic time at Long Bay. We were upgraded to a beach front room and we could not get over the view from our room and patio. It was amazing waking up to that view every morning. Our other family rented a villa in the resort as well, which had fantastic views as well. The rooms were all very clean and well cared for. The villa's could use a little upgrades but overall it was worth it....besides we were out enjoying the beach. The resturant on the property is pricey but very delicious. We tried to eat in as much as we could to save $$. The beach just down from the resort (smuggler's cove??) was one our favorite places to relax during the day. We had rented a car as we had small children with us and the walk would have been a little to far for them. Overall this is a beautiful property with friendly helpful staff.
