Stayed one night prior and post a sailing charter. We found the location great, being within walking distance of the ferry dock and town. Being on the waters edge, most rooms facing the ocean have fantastic views and include a lovely balcony. The reception was very helpful with an early check in when it was available. Much appreciated after a... More

After landing in St. Thomas, my son and I took a ferry to Road Town to begin our two-week stay in the BVI. I chose Maria's because of it proximity (literally less than a 5 minute walk) to the ferry, as we would be leaving in two days on an early morning ferry to Anegada. We arrived in late afternoon...

I think we paid about $170 USD for a modest room - no view. It was nothing special at all - like most of Road Town. Unfortunately you cannot do much better in Road Town. Waling distance to the St. Thomas Ferry pier. 1 km walk to big supermarket. 1-2 km from most sailboat charter companies.

People, listen up, stayed again at Maria's by the Sea. This time stayed in the new addition with ocean view room. We eat breakfast every morning on our patio. At night we would enjoy a mango or cocktails on our patio over looking the ocean. Their rooms are much larger than most hotel rooms. The amenities are first class. We... More

I turned up too early for my room but was eventually given the key before 3. (If the staff know I am waiting and the room is empty, why does housekeeping not clean the room next). The temperature in the room was 86 degrees. I went to the restaurant and asked for a salad, they did not have one so... More

When we left I tried to think of the most appropriate adjective to describe the front desk staff........ found it....... "apathetic" you can fill in the blanks. If you don't need to be in road town then I suggest Sebastians across the island. although we only stopped by Sebastians to look they were much more friendly and right on a... More

I've stayed at Maria's on several occasions; i'm just back from another trip, this being the first time in 8 years. The hotel is very well located in the "heart" of Road Town. In the U.S. we'd call this a 2 star hotel. Clean. Very simple. Internet is marginal. If you want a nice view, either eat in the dinning... More

We stayed at Maria's By The Sea for one night in April of 2016. We chose the location based upon its location close to the ferry terminal in Road Town. We were traveling from St Thomas to Anegada by ferry. The ferry schedule required a layover in Tortola. Maria's was perfect for our needs. Within walking distance of the ferry... More
