5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

We stayed at Fort Recovery for a week. We had an upper room with a balcony that overlooked the Caribbean.Tortola is a very hilly, picturesque island and I would recommend renting a vehicle for visiting the many various parts of the island with their beautiful views,We took the 15 minute drive to the capital, Road Town several times to pick up supplies, visit the markets and took the ferry from there to another other island. We did not eat all our meals at Fort Recovery but those we had there were excellent. All staff were friendly, welcoming and helpful..

Room Tip: We had an upper suite with a small library of books and a balcony where you could sit out and read a...

We have just returned from a month at Fort Recovery Villas in the BVI. I say that this is our home away from home because we have stayed there more times than I can remember-- every year for a long time. Needless to say, we love the place. The location is perfect--convenient to restaurants, beaches and shopping. It is a quiet place with a beautiful view over to St. John's.
The staff is friendly and accomodating. We have already booked for next February.

We arrived to the quaint setting of Fort Recovery and our wonderful accommodations. Our room gave access to the beach and the lovely sunsets of the BVI. We felt the resort was well managed and understood the word "service".
The other guests were engaging and full of good conversation. We found the grocery store down the road to have adequate supplies for our needs. The beach was great and the relaxing mode of the hotel provided us with a wonderful week.

I am a returning guest who recently got married at Fort Recovery. We had about 25 guests with us. We had the most beautiful wedding and stay, the guests were so pleased and the staff went out of their way to make sure everyone felt taken care of. My friends loved doing yoga on the dock and we had wonderful massages at the spa. The wedding was outstanding and the flowers and decorations were beautiful and well done. We all had an amazing stay, and can't wait to return!!

Spent a wonderful week here from Jan 26 - Feb 2, 2013 using the island as a base to also visit Jost Van Dyke and Virgin Gorda, both short ferry rides away. Our first floor villa was spacious, well appointed, clean and comfortable. Our patio and lawn had spectacular views and was only steps away from a small sandy beach. No coral here, but the dock and two rock jetties had many schools of fish, easy to see and reach, a plus for beginning snorkelers. Other beaches on the island ( eg. Smuggler's Cove) and other BVI islands have better snorkeling, eg. anywhere around The Baths at Virgin Gorda.

Unless you really want solitude, you need a car to take advantage of the island from here. There are no amenities within easy walking distance from the property. However, it is an easy drive to Soper's Hole and the West End ferry ( 5 min) for restaurants, groceries and some shops. The popular northern beaches and restaurants are only 10-20 minutes away and Road Town with its ferry terminal and restaurants are about 25 minutes. Roads are narrow and hilly and you drive on the left. We did not find this to be any problem because the traffic is ususally very light. Using taxis to travel is possible, but limiting and likely overall more expensive if you want to visit the rest of the island.

Special thanks to Doug at Fort Recovery. He helped us with our reservation, arranged airport transport for our late arrival, had a rental car delivered to our door the next day, answered many questions and helped us with anything we needed. Everyone at the property was friendly.

Breakfast and evening meals were available on the property and well prepared. We opted to mainly use off-site restaurants because there so many good alternatives available.

This is our second trip to Tortola and we find the West End to be an ideal location, away from the cruise ship crowds. We would stay at this property again.

We just spent 4 nights at Fort Recovery and had a great time. The room was very nice, bed comfortable, AC worked great, all was good in the room. Beautiful view, and the staff was even better than all of those descriptions. They have a nice beach with a dock you can put a boat on if you rent a power boat from Nanny Cay - which is just a short cab away. I'd recommend this place to anybody.

I have stayed all over the caribbean and enjoyed almost everything. This property is quite lovely,
although somewhat inconsistent with older rooms being less comfortable. those under the almond trees make sleep impossible as the nuts sound like hand grenades when they fall on the roof. We found Pamelah to be really, really abrasive. during our stay there was a particulary
windy day. A framed print fell off the wall and we were charged a pretty hefty fee to replace it-amazing! Staff are pleasant if you engage them, but clearly very unhappy in this work environment. While it is a nice enough property, the management is so unpleasant it taints the
experience. there are nicer places on the island where quests are made to feel welcome.

Room Tip: stay in the newer rooms and be sure to ASK for them and get it in writing!
