Where to start? From the road, it doesn't look like much but as soon as you walk from the lobby to the beach, you know this is a special place. View was insane, villa was perfect combination of charm, cleanliness and beach, and Doug and Rita were excellent hosts.
If you want a relaxing, private, vacation with a beautiful view that makes you feel like you have the Island to yourself, this is the place. You can easily rent a car and get to any other beach or into Sopers Hole or road town for activity. If not, you can make some pussers punch in your villa and sit on the porch or beach and feel like its your own private island.
We looked at every other hotel when we got there just for comparison. None are as nice...either they are not waterfront, or the waterfront is really rockfront, or the beach is crazy rough and loud. At Fort Recovery you fall asleep with the soft lapping sounds of the gentle ocean.
The food was delicious. Seriously, again the best food we had on the island. We tried several other restaurants including Sebastians, Pussers, and Myetts. Other guests told us they went to Sugar Mill which was they said was not as good as Rita's cooking and really over priced. So stock up at the liquor store and eat at Ft. Recovery
Seriously, we cant say enough about Fort Recovery. We had stayed at night in St Thomas at the fancy Marriott before we got to Tortolla and originally were going to spend ourtoast 2 nights back there but we cancelled them as soon as we saw the view from our villa.
The whole team there was so warm and polite. They made you feel welcome like an old friend but also gave you space. I have to say Doug and Rita were really fantastic!
It was one of the most romatic places ever. Even though there were other couples and people were friendly, it was still very private and quiet with no loud kids or rude adults.
We look forward to going back again soon!!!
We love you Dougy and Rita. (from your favorite Jersey pussers drinking guests. :)
