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

The hotel is very clean and our room did over look the sea beautiful view. Maria's daughters run the hotel and there is staff but I feel like... 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

A modern facility with clean rooms, comfortable beds and a strong A/C. Hot water was not evident despite directions from the front desk to let it run for 10 minutes. Try 20 minutes without a good result. Not a great way to conserve water. A restaurant by the same name is average. Why not eat somewhere else since there are... More

I've stayed at the Mariner Inn and another one nearby (can't recall the name) but Maria's is far better. I stay at Hilton properties in the states and the room here is just as nice. I think they must have update rooms because they look awesome, very upgraded into a modern look. The room has a microwave, coffee maker, refrigerator,... More

I've stayed here twice and would recommend it ,The hotel is pleasant , clean and well serviced. Lunch and dinner menus tend to be very good and all reasonably priced for both local and international cuisine. The hotel gives you great access to the town centre and all ferry, bus and taxi services. The staff are pleasant and helpful and... More
