This was a horrible place ten years ago. It took me about eight years to go back. I was pleasantly surprised last year when we took a chance and stayed there again. We were back this year in February and still liked it. We were in the middle section--probably above where the dining room is. There's a really old section... More

We spent two nights here prior to going on a sailing adventure in the BVI. Our room on the second floor overlooked the harbor. Check-in went smoothly, and we found our room very comfortably cool--in fact, we needed to turn down the air conditioning to make it more comfortable. The room was clean and sufficiently large. The WiFi worked fine,... More

I have stayed at Maria's by the Sea several times prior to renting a sailboat out of Road Town. It still might be the best hotel in a bad neighborhood but the place is just getting worn out. It is clean from top to bottom but the maintenance is awful. The air conditioner in our room was loud enough to... More

We, along with three other couples recently stayed here prior to our charter. Booking was done via email which made me uncomfortable since there was no confirmation number, but we had no issues checking in. The hotel is located in walking distance of the Road Town ferry. However, if you have heavy bags, you may wish to opt for a... More

We only stayed here overnight before transiting to another island and chose this hotel as it is close to the marinas. The hotel is situated in the heart of Road Town in an area that is being developed commercially. Building work, including pile driving, started around 7:00 am within 200 yards of the hotel and by the end of breakfast... More

The new wing in Marias is certainly an improvement and the rooms are spacious with small fridge, microwave, two large beds and loads of space. The views over the water are really lovely. I did have to specifically ask for a room in the new wing having been offered only old style rooms initially - fortunately I knew to check... More

Extremely large and spacious room, bathroom suite nice and clean, showers (mostly) hot, didn't have a sea facing balcony but still had a good view. Breakfast was really nice with a wide choice (although this is not included in the standard room rate). Good location, in the centre of Road Town with plenty of restaurants, bars around. Staff could be... More

Stayed here for two nights in January 2015; I was in room 301, an old room, and was very disappointed for the money. Whilst the room was clean and the bed nice every shower I had was cold and the air conditioning was the noisiest I have ever heard. I told reception about the cold showers and the air conditioning...

Short walking distance to ferry so very convenient. Rooms were adequate. Showers were hot and the air conditioning was efficient. Thought a bit pricey but in line with other hotels on Tortola. Would only recommend for business or short stay.
