I like this place. As one other reviewer put it, it's good for Tortola. Very laid back atmosphere. Very friendly staff. Everyone from the office staff to the cook, the restaurant server, the gardener, even the Grandson of the owner very willing to answer questions and showed concern for the guests' satisfaction. The beach is small, but nice, with views of sailboats and lush green hillsides. Our room was neat and clean. The advertising was totally respresentative of what we enjoyed when we arrived. We had dinner one morning and breakfast one night. The food was good. The rest of our time on island, we ate at other establishments or had snacks in our room which was equipped with a kitchenette.

Room Tip: From our upstairs suite, we could hear the ocean and also some road noise, but it was very minimal.

The lovely review made my day. It was all around a great review and much appreciated. All of us, including the entire staff says "Thank you." We can't take credit for the great views or the fabulous Caribbean Sea or the Sunsets, but we take all credit with gratitude of all that you bestowed on us. Thank once more......Anita

If you would be so kind to go to our Face Book you would probably have read that we have done a great deal of alterations in all the Deluxe Villas. They are really quite outstanding as you can read in some of more recent reviews, but thanks for mentioning it. You really had us reevaluate what we had that could be more updated, and so we did. It wasn't in our superior villas, which are newer. however we are all on target now. Thanks for your opinion. It really helps. however I am glad that you also noted the more outstanding details such as, "directly on the beach, Caribbean charm, spacious, and most of all, had a good time. Thanks again.

This small little place makes you feel like you have found your own little piece of paradise. The charming lady that prepares the meals makes you fell like you are staying with family. The views from the rooms are incredible. If you are looking for solitude you can find it right here.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Not having anything to do with producing the views, I can tell you I never get tired of the views myself. Watching the boats go by with St. John, Peter Island and Norman Island as a background with the sunset glowing is always a welcome site. Glad you could appreciate it, and also the lady that served you says thank you.

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.
