1014 was our room. While we loved the location - sea front - and were pleased to have them offer right away to give us a sea front room instead of top "reef room" (to get to those they have a spiral staircase - no way to get luggage up there easily") it was a big step down from the luxury we had just had over at Srub Island. We expected a step down but the website and pictures in the BVI magazine of this place are very misleading! The pool is no more - it's been filled in. The salt water pool - which is a sectioned off area from the ocean must have, at one time, been a nice place to swim or maybe it's cleaned up in the "on" season. Right now it has garbabe chairs in the water and trash all around it. This resort has seen better days for sure. I can tell it was probably something in it's day - but it's day has come and gone. I think they try to keep the section of rooms we were in (way in the back) as the "nice" rooms. I didn't see any mold and the room was very clean - but it's just so run down. They probably need to tear everything down and build something new. It is an amazing location though - just down the street from Road Town proper. The restaurant/bar right there is very nice and comfortable. To be fair to this place we were looking for something inexpensive for the 2 nights we extended our luxury stay at Scrub Island. We weren't expecting much more and since the place was clean we did enjoy our 2 nights there. While packing a roach did fall from the ceiling on my husband but that was the only one we saw and it is the tropics! We almost stayed at Sebastian's on the Beach which is on the other side of the Island. After seeing it we might have liked it better. But reviews on it were sketchy and I think they didn't have air - in August you need an airconditioner to sleep. So - if you go to Prospect Reef don't expect much and you'll be fine.
