“Decent value in North Sound, but don't expect too much”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Stayed at Leverick for one night.

+Mediocre to Poor Service
Service was mediocre at best. I think Sean was the only person I think is super nice and helpful. Front desk staff can be somewhat useful, depending on who you speak to. The staff on boat deck was actually pretty mean - I was asking for help regarding renting a dingy, and they were rude and dismissive.

+ Mediocre Restaurants
Restaurants there were ok. Price was decent though versus other hotels in the area.

+ Basic, tidy and neat room
Room was neat and tidy.

+Poor wifi
Wifi connection was pretty bad.

+ Cheaper than other hotels in area. Understandable, because level of service poorer and access to other beaches more limited, room more basic & rustic versus other hotels such as Saba Rock and Bitter End Yacht Club

This was our second time staying at Leverick Bay. We love the BVIs and the peace and quietness of the area so we couldn't wait to return. Like many reviewers state, this isn't the Ritz but as long as you know that going into it, you should be plenty pleased with the amenities.
We were greeted by a very sweet lady, Leticia, at the dock even though we arrived later than office hours. She also arranged our ferry ($140ish) over prior to our trip. She drove us up to our studio and we checked in the next morning at the office.
The first two days we rented the hotel's dingy. The guy that runs the boat rental, Mike, was quite sour in spirit but don't let his demeanor get you down. Boating around all the little islands in the cove is fabulous! We had lunch at the Sand Box one of those day and Cheryl was amazing. We were also treated to some island music there by a local with his guitar.
One thing to mention, the upstairs, nicer restaurant at the hotel was already closed for the season. No one had mentioned this to us during booking so we were a little disappointed as there aren't many places to eat to begin with. Ali at the downstairs beach bar was very friendly though and we ate there often. The prices did seem higher than last time and lunch tended to run us about $40-60 for two.
We went to the Friday night beach party with the stilt dancers - great food and fun times! I'm going to recap the other areas briefly as I don't want to run out of space.
The Baths - a must! We rented a car and headed to that end. The North End has some steep, curvy roads but the other end isn't bad. We went through the boulders at the Bathes over to Devil's Bay and it was worth the hike.
Spring Bay - right before the baths and awesome too. Definitely check it out.
Mad Dog - get a pina here! We didn't find a bad pina colada anywhere on the island but these are the best.
Savannah Bay - so pretty and the day we were there, not another person was at this beach.
Hog Heaven - a newer place at the north end. It overlooks the entire sound and is breathtaking. Stop by for a picture at least, but the drinks were good too. And the young man running the bar was very friendly and fun to talk to.
Ferry - we took the North Sound Express over on our arrival but took Speedy's back to Beef Island because the times worked out better and it turned out to be less expensive.
Car Rental - We used Speedy's and had no problems. We set it up from our hotel but then did have to swing by the location in town to sign the papers. You pretty much have to drive by there anyway if you go explore the island so it wasn't a big deal.
We also stopped by Nail Bay Resort for a drink and a bite to eat. The food was so good we wanted to get back for dinner but didn't make it back over.
A quick recap on our hotel. We never saw a single bug in our room. They have a small market on site that has practically anything you could need so that was a plus. They tend to turn the AC off during the day when they come and clean but ours always cooled back off nicely. The Dive Shop was closed on Sunday to our surprise so plan accordingly.
Hope that helps!

Room Tip: Room 9 has a great view!

We booked this trip using one of those discount sites (Gustazos) where you get amazing deals... Well, this was not the case.

We arrived to a very colorful place which wasn't very updated, but it was ok.
The pool was right in frnt of the bay and it was a beautiful afternoon. So, we were happy to be there.
That was until our first encounter: The counter clerk. She was as mean as it gets. On top of it, the reception closes at 6:00 pm, so if by any chance you are late, Forget it!

Then it was the rooms... Oh! The rooms.
It wasn't the poor taste in the decoration what was so bad, it was how dirty everything was. Really fithy.
Coffee maker was full of dirt and ants, bathroom was swimming in mold, the walls and doors were nasty and the toilettries? A stack of motel soaps on the corner of one window.
Air conditioning wasn't working, no remote for the TV,Über expensive dinner, a waittress who didn't want to bring us coffee because she would have to make it... and the best part, NO HOUSEKEEPING ON SUNDAYS.
Do yourself a favor:
NEVER EVER COME TO THIS PLACE.

Lovely tucked-away location in a bay at Northern end of Virgin Gorda, with great views over the water. Brightly painted from the outside, it feels a little bit "cheap and cheerful". Rooms are large and clean, but slightly tired (toilet roll is stuffing up the hole in our mosquito netting in the bathroom), the toilet blocks easily and there's not much hot water. Bar area gets lively with a well frequented happy hour hosted by a pirate singer most nights. Surprisingly, there's an excellent restaurant (upstairs) with delicious seafood and good wine list.

We visited Leverick last month and want to pass on a huge thank you for the great service at the Friday night Jumbie's buffet. We have some dietary issues in the family and Leverick was fantastic at addressing them. They provided a separately prepared main course to our table for my daughter and me, as well as a walk through the buffet by the head chef. Much appreciated!!!! We felt welcomed and well looked after. And the Jumbies were thoroughly entertaining - we'll be back.

We were on a bareboat and stayed overnight on a mooring ball. Leverick was in our plans from the start based on a positive experience in 2010, and to enjoy the Friday night buffet and the Jumbies.

Thanks Bubbles!

Basically everything you read here about Leverick is pretty much accurate, the good and the bad. I had a difficult time trying to think of how to best describe it in a way that would be helpful to other travelers. Our stay was a unique situation - we were visiting family members who own a sailboat that was anchored at Leverick for the duration of our stay (10 days). We spent the majority of our time on the sailboat, including for most meals and day trips so things about the hotel that I might normally find bothersome weren't of consequence to me as we basically used it for a place to sleep and shower.

In that regard, the hotel was fine. Although run down, the rooms are kept clean - and that is most important in my books.

I got the distinct impression that the resort caters mostly to the boating crowd. Most of the sailboats in the marina are charters so people are constantly moving in and out daily. They also receive some visitors from what I am guessing are cruise ship day trips - but not too many as the ships would be coming in on the other side of the island which is a 20 minute cab ride away.

For the boaters I think Leverick does a very good job. The bar serves good drinks, and the restaurants serve good food. (I had a delicious blue cheese hamburger my first day there!) There is fun entertainment (Michael Beans puts on a great show a few days a week and they bring in the "Jumbies" one day a week.) The Micheal Beans show is over by 7 pm so this is not disruptive to people staying at the hotel. The Jumbies party goes a bit later but really - people are on vacation, you can't expect it to be quiet 7 days a week. (We had small children and the only thing we found disruptive was another hotel guest who at 2 am one night decided to hoot and holler at the top of her lungs for over an hour... nothing to do with hotel activities). There is also a decent little food market/liquor store on site as well as a dive shop, Pussers, and a small shop that sells trinkets. Laundry is $6 a load and there is also a small spa that offers a variety of services. The pool and beach are small but not busy so the kids enjoyed themselves there quite a bit.

I decided that Leverick Bay Resort puts on a good "front". From the boaters perspective all looks great. When you look ‘behind the curtains’ at the actual hotel there are many things that could be done to encourage a more comfortable (and return) stay.

The rooms are very tired as some describe, a coat of paint and some minor repairs & upgrades would go a LONG way here. For example, our air conditioner started spewing water in the middle of the night on our 7 year old daughter... we promptly moved her and put towels down to catch the water (I will note however that the hotel was quick to have this fixed the next morning).

I think also that for people staying at the hotel a breakfast buffet would be helpful (included in the cost of your room would be even better as eating at Leverick Bay 3 meals a day would be very expensive!) There are no options for breakfast other than to buy cereal and milk or a bakery item at the grocery store. We were lucky to not have much issue with this as we would give the kids something small to eat first thing in the morning and then would move on board the sail boat for a more substantial breakfast (thanks to our wonderful hosts!)

The hotel staff is helpful and accommodating if you treat them with respect (I think this is fairly standard for most places one might travel).

As for the area itself, I don't think you could describe Virgin Gorda or the BVIs as anything less than beautiful and amazing. For those staying at the hotel, there is a free ferry ride over to Saba Rock for happy hour, you just have to call to arrange for the ferry to get you. Get there for 5 pm to watch them feed the "big fish", the food is good and the view is breathtaking, especially at sunset. A trip over to Biras Creek is worth it also. There are some nice little trails around that particular resort and a wonderful bakery items within the grocery store there. If you have a way to do some snorkelling there are some beautiful areas to see right near Leverick Bay also. Unfortunately we didn’t get a chance to get over to the Baths but I hear that is worth the trip also.

To sum it up I think I would say that Leverick Bay Resort is a good place to stay for a short stay (two to three days) if you are moving about from place to place, but not ideal for a longer stay (dining at the same restaurant 3 times a day would get tiring and expensive & mobility options are limited unless you rent a car or have a boat).

Room Tip: Lots of steep rock stairs lead to all of the rooms - we didn't have an issue with this but somet...

We stayed here our first night on Virgin Gorda. Knowing we'd arrive late, we figured we'd crash somewhere that was lower cost before continuing on the next day to Nail Bay, where we were scheduled to stay for the duration of our trip. I was very happy we were staying at Nail Bay and not here!

It was ok for one night and at that price point, but I would have been disappointed if we were staying there for our whole trip. The room had a great view, but it had seen better days. The bathroom in particular seemed pretty dingy and old to me. There was no screen for the sliding glass door, so you couldn't leave it open. The air conditioner was so loud that we couldn't run it. The ceiling fan didn't appear to work. The room itself was very sparse and not particularly welcoming. Speaking of welcoming...

We had noted to the resort that we would be arriving late and they said they'd have someone there to check us into the room. Well, we showed up and the office was of course closed with no one to be found. My husband asked at the restaurant and they called someone who came down and was very friendly, but we were exhausted and this just added to my crankiness.

On the flip side, we had a great fish sandwich at Jumbies Beach Bar. Fortunately, we were there I think on the one night that there was no live music. I could see how it could be really noisy on those nights.

This is a great value place if you want no frills.
