I will echo the opinions of others that this is a great resort, and I will go back. This is a quite resort, which is what i wanted, and that stated I had my children (18, 19, 21) with us and they too liked it and would like to go back. The staff was great. Karen, Chris, Jolisa and the... More

My husband and I spent a blissful week at Frenchmans for our honeymoon in July. We chose it after reading the rave reviews on Trip Advisor, and they couldn't have been more accurate. Frenchmans is a beautiful, quiet resort on the West End of Tortola. And it was absolutely perfect for our honeymoon. Chris, Julisa and the rest of the... More

My wife, I and our brother/sister in law spend 7 wonderful days at Frenchman's in February. Let me start by saying we are veteran travelers to many islands in the Caribbean having stayed at large, beachside resorts, smaller boutique hotels, and private 4/5 bedroom homes on several islands. Frenchman's provided a wonderful relaxing experience on a very beautiful island. Let... More

I have vacationed numerous times and stayed at many resorts throughout the Caribbean over the years, but none can compare than to my most recent experience at Frenchmans on Tortola, BVI. The villas were exceptional in decor, comfort and offered up privacy with panache. And, those ocean views from your private balcony instantly erased all memories of city life. Staff... More

I have just returned to Toronto after spending two heavenly weeks at Frenchmans. From the onset the staff were professional and helpful. After our booking I was asked on line, if I would like to stock our villa with provisions. What a treat! When we arrived our groceries were purchased and put away. I instantly found all of the staff... More

We have just returned from a fabulous 2 weeks at Frenchmans. We have 3 teenage children but shared the resort with extended family with much younger children - and found the resort perfect for our needs. The staff were so helpful and looked out the kids in multiple ways, the staff were interested in us and making our stay the... More

Booked this resort and was very disappointed with the results. Resort is limited in terms of activity. Ocean is rough and beach is man made and tiny with a little cove behind a sea wall. The cove still has spiny sea urchins in it. The snorkeling beyond the "wall" was rough seas and dangerous with zero direction from the resort... More

Frenchmen's Cay is absolutely paradise! One of the most gorgeous places in the British Virgin Islands. Exquisite resort with stunning views, the most welcoming & friendly staff, and some of the best food enjoyed in an open air clubhouse on the beach. Perfect for couples retreat, small, intimate weddings, honeymoons, or small groups. Frenchmen's Cay is highly recommended.

We stayed at Frenchman's recently on a trip to celebrate our anniversary. We were looking for a fairly quiet place but with ample things to do nearby, and this fit the bill perfectly. We stayed in the one bedroom Guava and it was perfect for what we needed. There is a living room, dining area, and kitchen on the first... More

We've been to a lot of very nice spots, but Frenchman's and the BVIs may be our new favorite. We like quiet off the beaten path places, but do not want to sacrifice quality or luxury. Frenchman's is a gem. This was our first trip to the BVIs and my husband and I stayed in a 2 bedroom cottage (Avocado)... More
