Because I grew up in this industry here in the Caribbean, I am more forgiving of what can go wrong at hotels. Not this one. For the first time in all my reviews I feel compelled to warn you off this place. If you are traveling with Moorings and feel like this would be a better place to stay than... More

The standard room was very large and comfortable. This was a perfect stay for a night before catching a morning ferry, which is only a short 5 minute walk from the hotel. You can't stay here without eating on the covered dining terrace.(grilled shrimp with vegetables and mango sauce and the cheesecake). It had a nice view of the water.... More

If you want to stay in Road Town this hotel is perfectly located, only a short walk to everything and at the same time by the sea with a nice view. The room was very nice, modern and clean. The staff was friendly and service minded. It's a taxi stand just outside also if you need a taxi.

We moved to this hotel after Sebastions On the Beach wasn't so great. We checked in and the A/C at Maria's was broken but they assured us it'd be fixed when we returned. Got back and the girl at the desk told us it wasn't fixed and they were going to upgrade our room for free. The first room was... More

This was my first (and hopefully last) trip to the BVI. On arrival, there was no concierge/bellhop to take my luggage to my room. Only one elevator, which broke down so had to use the stairs. My first night no laundry bags in room - I asked to have them sent up and was refused. I had to use my... More

I came here for a conference and my hosts arranged for my stay at Maria's. Having been to other Caribbean islands I was pleasantly surprised when I got to my room and it felt very new and very modern. The location is great, a short walk from the ferry pier and close to many local restaurants and shops. The meeting... More

Stayed one night ahead of a boat charter. It is 'by the sea' and very convenient for Fort Burt Marina and the Ferry Terminal but don't get carried away with the idea that its a beachside hotel - its not.The sea is infact Roadtown Harbour and there appears to be reclamation work going on adjacent to the hotel The hotel...

I stayed at Maria's by the Sea four nights in December, 2014. Unlike several of the other reviewers, my room seemed new; sparse, but new. It may be that Maria's has added a new wing, and they are still letting rooms in the older part of the hotel. At any rate, there is nothing really exceptional at all about Maria's.... More
