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.

After spending two nights at this hotel, on checking out, I discovered a USD25 charge per night on the rate that was declared (in addition to the usual taxes). It was called an hotel fee. When I asked I was told that it was for servicing the room. Really!? So in effect the actual rate is USD 25 more than...

My wife and I stayed at Maria's for one night prior to boarding our week long sailboat charter. We chose Maria's because it was reasonably priced and near the ferry dock. We had a nice, large room with a balcony overlooking the Road Town Harbor. The king sized bed was comfortable. In addition to being located near the ferry terminal,...

We would not stay here again. All staff very disinterested and unfriendly. Expensive and poor value for money. Positives- room was comfortable. They replaced our broken TV however we had to ask more than once.
