Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

The problem with Tortola is their are not many hotels to choose from so when all else fails then village cay is where you stay.Where do I begin....poor customer service,shower in the room doesn't work,food is ok but expensive and the entire hotel looks rundown...oh air conditioner unit did not work and to top it off the hotel is expensive.

The hotel is at a convenient location close to Road Town Ferries. The room was relatively clean and inexpensive. However, little things broke here and there, and they weren't replaced during our stay. I would have thought that people living in such a beautiful place would have a happy and vibrant personality. No, not at all. They seem very miserable. One of the waitress in the restaurant was very rude. Food was very overly priced. About $30 for a chicken dish.

Excellent welcome by Village Cay reception staff after another hotel had failed to honour a booking. Refurbished rooms are very pleasantly furnished. The bar and restaurant area is busy in the early evening but becomes peaceful later in the evening

We spent our first night in the BVI at Village Cay before our sailing trip as the Nanny Cay was booked. Nothing fancy, but very nice people, nice little restaurant, bar there in the marina. Room was clean, comfortable. Reminds you to get on "Island time" which is a very good thing. It is a chore lugging your bags up the stairs, but you overlook little details as it is laid back,Caribbean. Very nice people who work there.

Room Tip: If you have any problems getting up stairs, let them know so you don't get the top floors.

We often rent a boat at the Moorings in Road Harbor, Tortola and need a room for the night before our charter starts the next morning. The Moorings Mariner Inn is what most people book, but it can be over $300 a night! For a cheaper alternative try the Village Cay Hotel and Marina.The rooms are fine, there's a nice bar, and they allow late checkins. It's just across the harbor, or a short taxi ride or cab back to the Moorings marina. I had had a buddy pick me up in a dinghy to take me to the Moorings the next morning.

We stayed here for 2 notes after our sail charter. We chose this because our boat sailed from/ to this marina, so it was convenient. We read the reviews of course before we booked. We were placed on the 3rd level at the back of the hotel. Yes it was a chore lugging our bags up all those stairs, but we did get a little help from one of the staff when he saw us struggling, and that helped. Our room was good, clean, air conditioned and spacious. The bed was comfortable and the shower was good. It was nice to have a laundry facility down stairs. We had several meals at the restaurant and the food was excellent, and yes the service sloooow, LOL. We did encounter some rudeness, but overall the staff was friendly and gracious. The location is perfect for walking around Roadtown for shopping and restaurants. We would stay here again. And oh, them darn roosters, UGH!!!

We stayed with another couple in the 2 bedroom condo for one night before boarding our catamaran for a week. The condo was very spacious and clean. There was a small ant problem in the kitchen and bathroom but we were only there one night. The nozzle on the shower popped off while I was in the shower and we couldn't get it back on. The view of our condo was great and we loved sitting on the deck with the French doors open so much we turned off the air conditioner and went out to Bobby's Market and bought drinks for the evening and breakfast to make there. Not great pans for cooking but we had fun with it. The restaurant was typical with decent food at not so cheap prices and island drinks. It was definitely "the islands" with little resort like accommodations but we loved it. Another couple who stayed in a room joined us for the evening and for breakfast -- plenty of room and comfortable seating, flat screen TV, big dining room table. If you expect to come to Tortola and have the Hyatt/Marriott resort hotel experience, this island is not for you.

Room Tip: Ask for the renovated rooms facing the water or go for the two bedroom condos which I think all face...
