“Outstanding Hotel, I think this is the very best on the Island”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

My wife and I spent 4 days at Long Bay Beach Resort in March 2013. We stayed in a Cabana overlooking what must be one of the very best beaches in the Carribean. We had one of the very best holidays we have ever had here and after staying at two other hotels on Tortola during the trip, we would highly recommend Long Bay.
Importantly, the beach. A lovely, white, mile long, clean beach is the jewel in the crown on Long Bay.
Next comes the facilities. Pool area has one of the largest pools on the island and the gym is well equiped. Free wifi across the resort. Good food in the lovely beach side restaurant.

Indeed, as seasoned travellers, I find it very hard to crticise Long Bay. I just wish we had stayed longer.

The best on the Island.

Room Tip: We stayed in a Cabana n the beach. One of the best rooms we have ever stayed in. Loved the stay.

We just got back from our 3rd trip to Tortola! We just love this great little island in the BVI's!!
We stayed at Long Bay Beach resort-booked through travelzoo.com. We stayed at the resort for 5 nights. Long Bay has a nice property and grounds. Beautiful beach! Waves and surf seemed rough at times. So please take note to swim or wade with caution. The beach is nice and great for a morning or afternoon stroll from one end to the other. Resort provides great lounge chairs on the beach and around the pool so you can relax and read a good book. We had a spectacular view from our room 214. Only draw back was we just above the sewage leech. Every now and then if out on the balcony you might get a whiff -but it was never bad where we had to move our room. Our room was spotless!! Great maid service daily with a fresh bag of towels daily. We did have dinner at the resort one night and was not impressed with the food. So we travelled to Sebastian's one of our favorites and Cruzin another night. I did have a great breakfast at the resort one a.m. Great Eggs Florentine and the satff was great! We did find the staff to be very warm and helpful at all times. We liked the little bar up in the entertainment room. Prudence was our bartender - very nice!! We also loved the store next to the main lobby as it came in handy for snacks and beer after being out all day swimming and snorkeling around the island. We rented our car from Jerry's at West End -very accommodating. The resort was very easy access to and from West End ferry. We look forward to going back to Long Bay Beach Resort again and again!!!!

Room Tip: ask for room 214 or another room in that complex up on the hill so you can have a spectacular view o...

I stayed a full week at Long Bay in February. I instantly felt like in it's heyday this was probably one of the better resort on the island.
Pros: on the beach, restaurant dinner menu changes nightly, facilities, food was pretty good, front desk secured dinner and taxi reservations, staff pleasant , free wi-fi, gift/snack shop, spa treatment was fab (Elizabeth), sent me a bottle of wine for my birthday
Cons: not enough staff at restaurants and pool area- long waits, rooms clean but very dated, no beach service - have to get up for drinks and towels must go to front desk everyday, most of beach is rocky , with strong waves- no swimming, Internet cafe smells like mothballs, no kind of nightly entertainment , no beach activities on the beach like boogie boards, etc. which would be great since you get great waves.
There was a manager on site from corporate toward the end of the stay. I believe Long Bay is in a transition. Even though it was a special on Orbitz, it was priced higher than I think is justified based on price. However, compared to other properties on BVI it's priced competitively. Don't expect fabulousness but a clean place that will meet most needs with tons of potential.

Room Tip: Room 594 is beachfront deluxe. It's close to 1748 restaurant and the non rocky entrance to the b...

Dear Valued Guests,

Thank you for your feedback on your recent stay with us at Long Bay Beach. We always look forward to receiving guest comments as it helps us to constantly improve and deliver a great vacation experience.

The majority of our guests love our beach. While the surf can kick up at times, this does happen in many locations throughout the Caribbean at certain times of the year.

We hope that when you consider your next vacation in the sun you will come back to visit with us again.

My husband and I have visited other islands in the BVI and found Long Bay a few years ago. We just visited in January again for two weeks - this makes eight years in a row. We love everything about Long Bay - but what makes our trip so special are the people who work so hard to make us feel welcome and treat us like family. We have fallen in love with this resort and plan to buy something on the property in the near future.

Room Tip: We have stayed in several different type rooms - poolside villa and beachfront villa - love both t...

We were looking for a moderately priced, clean and comfortable place to rest up after a week of sailing in the BVI. Long Beach did not disappoint. They were friendly at the desk. The rooms were clean and with beautiful views of the pool, tennis courts, and ocean/Sir Francis Drake Channel. Breakfast in the morning, down on the beach was nice and service allowed us to finish quickly enough to check out and get to the airport in Beef Island. It is a 45 minute taxi ride to the airport. The pool bar had a good grill for a simple lunch.

Room Tip: We all had poolside rooms.

We booked our trip only 2 weeks in advance and were first time travelers to the BVI. It was the most awesome experience ever! Loved our spacious, poolside/deluxe room with marvelous views of the beach,ocean and mountains. Everything was clean, the furnishings very upscale and both beds had new, good quality mattresses that were really comfortable! We slept with the patio doors open at night enjoying the warm, dry air and sound of the ocean. No problem with security--we felt very safe and knew the staff had us covered.
The resort is beautifully landscaped with lush blooming bushes everywhere and very PRIVATE even though you're overlooking the pool. We couldn't tell how many people were staying at the resort at any given time and the ones we met were extremely nice.
Excellent service all-round!! Had no problem with wi-fi, TV, Taxi service, clean towels or feeling completely cared for. Long Bay Beach Resort & Villas is a JEWEL and the island of Tortola is unforgettable. Just beautiful everywhere you look!

Biggest challenge is getting to the island itself....Long Bay should consider having their own ferry shuttle service to St. Thomas!
Pool and beach are great. Food in both restaurants was ok - not great.

Room Tip: All villas have great views!
