We were willing to forgive the problems with the room, but not the rudeness at that hotel beginning with check in. No eye contact, barely answered questions. Was completely bothered by our being there. The restaurant was not much better than check in. No personality at all so we ate there only once. We will never go back to Tortola....

We recently stayed at Maria's By The Sea for one night before our boat charter began. I wanted something close and inexpensive since we would be getting in late from a long travel day and just needed a place to sleep. I was wrong on this one! Wow. I'm pretty low maintenance but apparently so was this room. So nasty...

Superb rooms, beds and bathrooms. Service in bkfast was average. The waitress seemed annoyed by just being asked about breakfast. Not very friendly. Rest of the personnel was friendly and helpful. The views of the sea harbour are very nice and relaxing. Rooms also have a huge comfortable balcony. High ceilings make you feel at home. We had our room...

Even closer than I thought to the ferry dock, just 2 blocks away and very convenient to the TMM charter base. The staff was attentive and friendly. The room was clean and comfortable. There was an "oh wow" when we opened the door to our room and saw the view. Looking across the pool and the harbor seeing Cooper Island...

This hotel was clean, comfortable and the people were very friendly! The air conditioning worked wonderfully. The only draw back was the food service took a long time, but other than that it was a great place to stay!!

We ended our sailing charter with a night's stay at Maria's . Location is close to the ferry dock and walking distance to restaurants. Make sure to get a room in the newly renovated section and if possible, it is worth the upgrade to a suite. Clean, large room with stunning waterfront views. Not a place that I would spend...

Great location in Road Town, walking distance from the ferry dock. Clean rooms, friendly staff. Close to the Dolphin Experience. We spent two nights here before going to Virgin Gorda. Hotel is quiet. Great view of the bay.

Nothing special. Clean rooms, but boring. Compared you European level definitely not more than 3 stars. Service was quite ok but not outstanding. Ok for a business trip for two days but not really to be recommend for the holiday trip of your life. Doubtful if BVI in General would be your dream destination...

Great location in downtown Road Town. Just a short walk from the ferry dock. Check in was a breeze. Very clean rooms that are well maintained. A nice choice of dining areas within walking distance. Courteous, and friendly staff. Everyone was attentive to my needs, and very friendly. Kemeisha, at the bar, was Awesome!!! Would definitely stay here again.

We spent a night at Maria´s By The Sea upon arrival in Tortola , before proceeding to a resort on a nearby island. Very comfortable and clean room with great view over harbour and Drake Channel. Dinner and breakfast both very tasty. We fully recommend this hotel.
