Village Cay BVI Hotel
Ranked #11 of 13 Hotels in Road Town
Reviewed July 3, 2011

What a little gem this place is - a great place to stay before/after a charter. Walking distance to lots of things in Roadtown - superior front desk staff -- a special shout out to Trefor, the GM, who welcomed us like family and even gave us little presents to take with us on our charter! They came in VERY handy, Trefor, so thanks again!

Our room was clean, spacious, and comfortable with a great view of the harbor. The bar & pool were a great place to hang out and prepare ourselves for 10 days of future "limin'" in the BVI. We saw lots of charter captains hanging out at the bar, checking their internet, and having a cold one! Great atmosphere and clearly the regulars like it! And so do we!

We'll be back - thanks Team Village Cay :) Excellent value for an excellent time!

My family had two rooms, not adjoining, for an overnight stay before boarding our chartered yacht the next day. The rooms were clean and comfortable. When the rooms had been renovated in the past, somebody forgot to upgrade the electrical system for properly located electrical outlets. I really had to work with the plug for the television set to get it to power it up. Breakfast the next morning was acceptable, but it was nothing that would make somebody wish to return. The staff at the front desk was too business like. One was not greeted with a friendly welcome.

We had our family of 8 (six adults and two kids) and rented the two condos for two nights. These were quite nice with two bed rooms and a kitchen and a living room and the location is great. But..we had no water at one of the units for a day and no water at the other for two days. This ment no flushing, no showers etc. When we repeatedly asked the clerk, we were always told "They are working on it." When we finally left, the problem was that they had cisterns that were filled with water that was trucked in and the truch had broke down. They made virtually no effort to alleviate our problem. They acted like this was normal and we could go and use the public showers and bathrooms. Also, the lock was installed incorrectly on one condo and the deadbolt was unusable.

This hotel is great when you are in transit or need an extra night before or after a sailboat charter. It is in the center of Roadtown a and is convenient. The Restaurant is great for comfort food and unwinding.

Village Cay is a hotel, bar, restaurant and marina in Road Town. When incoming Hurricane Earl pulled us off our chartered sailboat, we settled in to this concrete-walled refuge for three nights. Nice pool, very friendly and helpful staff; spotless rooms, good beds. And a GENERATOR, which meant that our lights and air conditioning worked throughout the howling storm. Sometimes you want to survive in comfort; the Village Cay Hotel really came through for us.

A bunch of 10 of us needed to stay just one night while waiting for a flight, and were essentially marooned in Tortola. We had checked the place out earlier and although spoke with the Manageress and got given some rates, the receptionist on arrival could not understand that we actually did not have reservations, so kept drawing a blank when looking a his books/computer.
Anyway, that over, we were shown our rooms, which must have been at the cheaper end of the scale, as they overlooked a car-park and not the marina. Initial impressions of the rooms were good, but in the Room we had (B5) the bathroom let the standard down.
Beds were comfy, TV fine, A/C worked, toilet OK, but the shower was terrible. The head was loose, and there was little pressure & I'm pretty sure the water was cold as well.
After settling, we went to the pool area which was fine, and the main bar & restaurant was adjacent to this. The service at the bar was a little slow at times, but this can be normal in the Carribbean so we got used to it.
The service at the evenin meal was simlar, and we had the usual conversation about should a tip be earned or just given anyway ! We felt the waitresses could have showed a little more enthusiasm, especially as we were the only guests.
The evening meal was great, but the breakfast the next day, a little bland (I had omlette).
The hotel is close to the centre of the town, so its easy to walk around and get a feel for the bustle of Road Town. There was a Chinese takeaway close buy, which did a great cheap lunch judging by the numbers of office staff walking away with brown bags & a drink.
On the waterfront side of the hotel, you can walk to the right (when facing the marina) and there are a couple of modern bars/restaurants worth a look, but thats about it.
In summary, this was probably one of the better hotels around, and was certainly a little cheaper than the new developments on Wickhams Quay 2 (the Moorings/Sunsail base). If I allow for the Carribean laid back attitude, the hotel was "good" and would recommend for those travelling on a medium budget. However, if money is not an object, and you are after luxury, best look elsewhere.

Although, rooms look clean, it didn't feel like it. The internet access is the worst I've encounter. Operations stop at 10pm, everything from the bar to the lobby. Not even for a phone call. Building is very old and look like they have put layers and layers of paint. This is kind of staying at a motel at a Hotel rate. Check other reviews and look around, but if you try to stay here for leisure you will be very disapointed.
