Hi. My husband and I are planning a brief stay in Tortola after a 7 day villa rental on St. John. We want to stay somewhere within easy walking distance of a nice beach and not spend >$200 per night. We will not be renting a car after renting one and the $$$$ price tag on St. John for 9 day car rental. Anyway, I am most interested in either Smuggler's Cove area or Cane Garden Bay. I cannot find much in the small hotel / B&B category in Smuggler's Cove, and I assume this is because it is sort of remote and there is not much around? We are very much NOT the luxury hotel type (been there - done that) and enjoy local atmosphere. In the Cane Garden Bay area we are considering the Mongoose Apartments or Myett's Garden Hotel and Grille, or possibly the Tamarind Court in Josiah's Bay. Is anyone out there familiar with any of these? We do not want to be at any place that has a loud beach bar and grille scene going on until the wee hours everynight, and would like a clean room within easy walking distance to a variety of restaurants and bars for the evening.
Thanks to anyone who is knowledgeable and can provide recommendations.
