We went to Biras Creek on honeymoon and were amazed at the quality we found on every level. There are complimentary bikes to get around the resort (It's quite large and spread out). There was also a large complimentary bottle of rum in each room. The mini bar is fully stocked with soft drinks and water all of which is complimentary but refills are charged for. There are Hobie Cats, Kayaks, snorkelling kit, Boston Whaler and folk boats all free to rent for up to 2 hours. If the watersports centre is not busy a longer rent can be arranged, again free of charge.
If you get fed up of swimming in one of the three bodies of water Biras Creek is surrounded by (Although only one beach is really suitable because out of the others, one is a marina the other is very rocky with strong rip tides) there is an outdoor pool. There is cold water and fresh towels here and drinks/ cocktails can be delivered on request and charged to your room.
The menu changes every two nights which is great as there is a lot of great food to chose from if you miss out on the salmon on the first night you can have it on the second night. Dinner is a luxurious occasion and there is a dress code. It consists of an amuse bouche (which is rarely vegetarian but apparently delicious...my other half had 2 most nights) followed by your starter, then there is a palette cleanser...a different sorbet every night, main course and desert. The menu costs $85 normally but is free if you are on a half or full board stay. The staff were very accommodating when I asked for a vegetarian version of a certain dish.
We stayed for a week and were never bored. The staff were happy to arrange other activities such as car hire, there were free ferries to other islands and regular excursions which you could choose to go on. There was a spa and a daily list of activities. Also newspapers at breakfast were a great idea!There is also a library and media room where we had complimentary afternoon tea.
There are hardly any negatives the only thing I would say is I would have preferred it if the swimming beach had less sea grass and sponge. It's fine to swim over just slimy to walk on.
There is lunch served at the beach ($83) or a cafe called The Fat Vigin (The literal translation of Virgin Gorda) but you can easily catch a ferry to other places such as Leverick Bay or Saba Rock for other lunch options.
Overall a fantastic experience and we will certainly be back!
