Loved everything- our 2-story bungalow with decks and views from all levels, well-equipped kitchen, lovely beach area with comfy chairs and cabanas- what more could you ask for? Great restaurant and wonderful staff.

We stayed one week at Frenchmans, specifically in the Pineapple cottage. The cottage has 2 bedrooms, was beautifully decorated and had everything that you would need for your stay. Both rooms were air conditioned, however the main floor was not. This does take some getting use to if you are use to always having air conditioned rooms throughout the house,... More

2 planes, 2 taxis and a boat but worth every mile. We did not look at the trip as an inconvenience but part of the adventure. Once we arrived to out cottage with porch overlooking the channel we knew right then it was worth it. We stayed in Guava the hut and couldn't have been happier. Upstairs bedroom and bath,... More

After spending two weeks sailing, my wife and I finished our honeymoon with a week at Frenchmans. Looking back, I couldn't have chosen a better place. The was beautiful and very clean. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. Chris, the assistant manager, went the extra mile on numerous occasions and added the perfect touch to the incredible vacation. Highly... More

Wow. Secluded and private yet just a short walk to Soper's Hole. The service is over the top, and Chef Paul Knows how to wow you with his culinary skills. The villa is fresh, clean, beautifully furnished and it has an amazing view of the ocean and beach you can gaze upon for days. You will not want to leave... More

My family and I stayed at Frenchmans for a few nights before heading to Virgin Gorda. We were delighted with our beautiful villa- the artwork, unique decor, extremely comfortable beds, bathrooms, and multiple decks made us wish we were staying there longer. In our two bedroom villa, our bedroom's a/c happened to have been broken, which the staff recognized before... More

My wife and I stayed here for eight nights at the end of May and it was fantastic. It is on Frenchman's Cay on the West End of Tortola, but connected by a short bridge to the main island. It is easily accessible to the West End ferry and the marina and facilities at Soper's Hole (7-10 minute walk depending... More

We just spent a week at the Cay. I can't call it a hotel because it is essentially a free form resort with first class accommodations and Five Star dining. Everything about the staff, meals, courtesy, the decor in the rooms and quality of furnishings is First Class. If you wish to emerge yourself in a tropical paradise this is... More

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!
