We stayed at Maria's by the Sea for one night before our sailing trip. It was conveniently located...close to ferry and to several restaurants and shops. The views of sea from the restaurant and bar were lovely! Request an oceanfront room if you are able because the view is stunning. We enjoyed their pool and the delicious Painkillers from the...

Our Airbnb accommodations were not as expected, so we were in an immediate need for lodging. The bartender at Pusser's recommended Maria's by the Sea and luckily they had a room available. Room was spacious and very clean. Onsite restaurant wasn't very good at all. We spent most of our time island hopping each day which was just a short... More

The room was big and clean and we had a nice view. That said, the whole building lacked character....and felt a touch bleak. I don't know what to compare it to -- but we were happy with our stay -- as we were prioritizing location.

Maria's By the Sea exceeded my preconceived expectations. I was expecting an average at best hotel and it was a nice hotel. Not a five, star luxury hotel, but that wasn't what we were looking for. The staff was nice and helpful. The location was great and there was plenty of parking at all times. Our room wasn't plush, but... More

We stayed at Maria's by the sea in July 2016 for a night before setting sail and for a night upon our return From sea. The hotel was perfect for this purpose. The food was tasty, the pool great and the staff were friendly. It's close enough to walk to nearby restaurants, shopping village, taxi rank and ferry dock. The... More

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
