This month I was able to take a night kayak trip with family members who were in town. Our guides were Lewis, Chris and Sam. We arrived at the main entrance of the hotel and were directed how to get down to the dock. If you have issues with stairs request a ride, there are a lot and not all...

To be fair, there were great points about the hotel, but there were areas they need to work on. On the plus side, we were greeted well when we arrived. They offered a rum and punch drink that was nice. We were celebrating our 30th anniversary and surprised us with a bottle of champagne in our room. We signed up...

This was our first time at Frenchman's Reef and I was very excited to stay at this hotel. The pictures of the place are gorgeous and it truly is an incredible work of art, architecture and engineering to build this beautiful property on a bluff overlooking the Caribbean. And after other stays at other Marriotts, I fully expected a five...

This is a long review so if you don’t want to read it in its entirety, this is our summary: we would not stay here again and I’m a Marriott Platinum Elite member. Upon arrival, we had no idea about how to check into the hotel, in particular the Morning Star area and had no guidance from the front desk....

Great experience up close with surfacing sea turtles and the biggest bat I've ever seen that was catching fish! Travis and Yentyl were great guides. The paddling in not strenuous at all if you're worried about being in shape or not having any kayak experience. I highly recommend this activity.

We were worried after reading some reviews about the place looking "dated". Maybe we were in a remodeled room because it was very nice. We were on the 7th floor facing the Harbor. We watched the sunset every night and the lights throughout mountain side was spectacular. There are multiple places to eat on the resort. The beach is a...

We spent three nights at this resort after a week long BVI Charter. A very pleasant experience. Staff friendly and helpful. Due to possible staffing issues, we experienced very late room service but not there much so did not bother. On site restaurants were great, drinks with Caribbean flavor as expected. Of note was the bartender in the "sports bar"...
