It is a simple one bedroom apartment with one bathroom and kitchen. My sister slept on the futon/sofa. They had a/c. It was pretty clean. The staff were friendly and did a great job keeping the place clean. One day they actually washed our dirty dishes which we didn't expect. It is close to the beach, the Elm, and Tony's.... More

We stayed in the Sugar Apple room (2nd floor), and it was clean, had an excellent air conditioner (!), and was just what we needed for our stay. I took a few photos of the room, as well as Cane Garden Bay, where Elm Beach Suites is located. The location was perfect because the water in the bay was calm... More

The best thing about The Elms is the simplicity. The lodgings are basic and very clean. And just feet from the beach in Cane Garden Bay. The staff are wonderfully welcoming and helpful. The food at the restaurant is fresh and wonderful. This is not for,those who want shiny marble and uniformed staff, but for us it was simply perfect!

I have returned to this small, 7 room hotel for the 14th year in a row. I love staying there. There is no pool and no frills. But, it is right on the beach and run by wonderful people. If you want a 5 star hotel, this is not the place or island for you. But, if you want a... More

We stayed in the Tamarind room, on the first level, due to our issues with stairs. It was quite large, with a decent sized bedroom, kitchenette, and living room. Most of our time was spent on the porch, which had a ringside seat to the nightly "Happy Table" gathering. Think BVI's version of the Algonquin Round Table. The staff at... More

Definitely not an all inclusive. Those can be had anywhere. This wonderful beach front suites hotel immerses you in the local culture. Having been to Cane Garden Bay several times we know that this is the place to stay. Our room was upstairs which gave us a great view of the area. Staff is very friendly and willing to go... More

I stay at this charming 7 room hotel every year for a couple of weeks. Great location on the best beach on Tortola. Very minimal services. Rooms are cleaned and there is a beach bar/restaurant. Lots of fun and wonderful staff. No frills at all.

I would not recommend this to the average traveler but my family has stayed here several times over the years. We know what to expect in accomodations which is not much but remarkably it's better than some of the crap down the beach. Rooms are ok but dated, you can hear the dogs barking all night long, AC is noisy... More

Beach dump. Bed sheets stunk of mold. Pillows were stained, old and dirty. Soap wrapper was browned around edges from mildew or mold. TV reception was horrible, no TV in room. Location was great for attending the BVI music fest! We were right on the beach near bars, restaurants, a grocery store and the main stage for the music fest.

If your looking for 5 star this not your place. If your looking for a clean one bedroom apartment with a kitchenette, comfortable bed, friendly staff, restaurant and bar within steps of your room that also fronts the beach, this is your place. Nightly the Happy Table is the center of Cane Garden Bay where you can meet and have... More
