Four of us traveled to Frenchmans for a friends Caribbean getaway and we were all very impressed. We arrived much later than expected after a terrible taxi ride from Road Town (definitely try to get the ferry to West End rather than Road Town as it is about two minutes from the hotel and the taxi driver from Road Town...

Wow! We booked here for 3 nights before a sailing trip and were so happy with this little gem of a hotel. The front desk staff took care of absolutely everything for us and made us feel genuinely taken care of and appreciated. Rooms are clean, spacious and well laid out. We spent 2 days lounging in one of the... More

I was looking for a high end, quiet, relaxing and romantic place to stay for a few days with my husband as we travelled around the Caribbean. Frenchmans ticked all the boxes and more besides. The rooms are very comfortable and nicely decorated with quality being the key. The views of Drakes Channel are to die for and the small... More

But the list of drawbacks is long. first day, went down to have breakfast and was told the "chef does not work on Mondays or Tuesdays" so we were given cold cereal... More

1st you must have a passport. Not as easy to get as you think. The difference between St Thomas and other Islands. It has a more expensive clientele. The contrast of Mountains and Beaches make the island more beautiful than others. Plenty of places to get away from the crowd. The rowdy crowd doesn't come here. Watching all the great... More

Frenchman's is an excellent place to stay in Tortola. We stayed in one of the two bedroom villas during the first week in March. The villa was very nicely furnished, clean and comfortable. The beds were great. Morning coffee on the deck was the best! It's a beautiful, private, low key resort that provided us with all of the rest... More

The Frenchman's is the best hotel in Tortola. My husband and I spent one night there a few days ago. The place is amazing. It is a small boutique hotel, but I would say it is more like a villa hotel. Your room is a villa. Our villa "Mango" was perfect. Super clean and beautifully furnished (all inside was made... More

We stayed 3 nights in February 2015 in the Sugar Apple. Pros: The villa was beautiful and had more space than we needed. Each bedroom has super cold air con (NEST) and decks off each. Beds were very comfortable and 3 closets in each room to keep everything neat. There was a 3rd deck area off of the living room/dining... More

We spent 4 lovely nights at Frenchmans. The villa was well equipped and very comfortable with all the amenities needed. Our villa didn't have a spectacular view but the beach area was clean and had easy access. Location was convenient to Soper's Hole. I'd highly recommend it.

We stayed just for a couple of days. We were made so welcome from our arrival to our departure. The view is fantastic, a lovely serviced beach. The rooms are very tastefully done with of-course great views. The restaurant is run separate and absolutely fantastic food. Breakfast had just one choice but was a signature dish and we enjoyed this.... More
