So the real truth is that there aren't many great options in Tortola; if you want a modern and well-appointed resort, go to Virgin Gorda. (We had to stay in Tortola for a regatta). In that respect, Ft. Recovery is certainly decent. Our bungalow was a nice size with a kitchenette, sitting area and bedroom + en suite. It was clean and comfortable and situated on their beautiful, private beach. Its location does, however, require a rental car if you would like any freedom to explore the island or just not be beholden to the delays and high fees of the taxis. Or if you want to eat. They purport to have food service but whether or not it is staffed is precarious and what the food offerings are that day are even more unknown. For your own sanity, you should plan for food and restaurants in advance; you cannot rely on regular, prompt food service here.

Right on the water, recovery lives up to its name: a serene place to relax and rejuvenate. The food was delicious and the staff attentive. Also, my grandmother had a fantastic massage given by Ivet! The room was full of books that you take down to the beach and read, which we loved as well.

Thank you for a wonderful vacation!!

So glad you enjoyed your holiday at Fort Recovery Hotel. We try to keep our library up to date and really glad you took the time out to read and relax. Also, Ivet thanks you for her mention about the Massage. I might add she has received an award from reputable magazine for her unbelievable "Deep Tissue Massage", and we are very proud of her as well. Thank you again from all of us.

When we first pulled up at the Fort Recovery Beachfront Villas, after 10 days on a bareboat charter, the last couple of which were at the luxury Peter Island resort, I was a little concerned. But once we settled into our very clean and nicely appointed room with the best view of the turquoise Caribbean waters, I was delighted. The pool is small but the beach is gorgeous. We had a lovely couple of final days in the BVI at Fort Recovery. We had one meal at the onsite restaurant which was lunch. The menu for lunch was very limited and probably not the best one to highlight. We chose to cook in our kitchenette the rest of the time but I heard the chocolate chip pancakes were delicious. If you love a great view, want to chill out in a quiet spot and like having a kitchenette, this is a great spot. If you are looking for a fancy luxury resort, this is not that.

The view from ocean front villas is spectacular! Our room was cozy and clean and had a connecting living room with a kitchenette. The beach was beautiful and well maintained. Snorkeling around the dock, we saw lots of colorful fish! The pool was clean and lovely. We were unable to access wi-fi in our room the first 3 days, which was quite frustrating, however, they did get it fixed. Overall, this is a gorgeous vacation spot.

The West End location is within walking distance of a small grocery store but to go to restaurants and shops, you'll need a taxi or rental car. We found that daily rental car prices were actually less than the cost of roundtrip taxis (for 3) to Road Town.

We enjoyed our stay very much and loved that we were the only folks at the beach and pool. Such a beautiful little place!
