On an island not known for modern or luxury accommodations, this would seem to be the clear choice. The grounds are beautiful, and quiet, the view stunning. Units are well decorated, and include a full kitchen. Ours, one of the two-bedrooms, had three balconies; sitting out on one at night and talking under the stars while gazing at the island... More

This has been one of the best experiences in a long time. A very attentive staff, super nice and helpful owner - who even gave us a free bottle of French champagne just because something minor went wrong! The villas, private cottages offer breath taking views and are super nice, done West Indies style. Overall a very happy experience!

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

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
