“beautiful hotel, great staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

just got back from my vacation, i've got nothing but great things to say about our stay at Fort Recovery. All of the staff members have been nothing but kind to us. Ann, Mia, Pam and of course Rita were all so helpful. Whenever we ran into any problems, they went above and beyond to help us so that we could enjoy our trip to the fullest.

I'm glad i picked a hotel far away from the bustling and hustling from road town. soper's hole is a short 5 min drive with beautiful sunset, a bit far from the airport but totally worth it for the peace and serenity.

We stayed here twice during this trip in room 2 and 5 on the top floor. both were very clean with great beachfront views. i sincerely enjoyed meeting all the staff members and will definitely miss them.

my only real recommendation is if they would make the hotel sign a little bigger, it would be much easier to find esp late night lol

don't forget us Rita !!!! i will be contacting you in the near future

Fort Recovery offers well maintained grounds and well appointed villas. This was our second stay and each time the top notch staff made our visit a true pleasure. Rita and Pamela were so helpful with their advice regarding: where to dine; shop and swim. The peaceful atmosphere and immaculate semi-shaded pool were well-appreciated after swimming in the clear water on the sandy beach. We enjoyed the wonderful water views and Caribbean breezes from our porch. There were an amazing amount of different flowering bushes and towering coconut trees of many varieties. Our villa was air-conditioned and we had total privacy; yet could socilaize if we wanted. We are ready to make plans for our next stay. Thank you Fort Recovery!

Room Tip: all villas are nice

Stayed at a 3-bedroom unit right at beach level and it was Fantastic--large, super clean, with party of 6, and a 2-bedroom unit nearby for party of 4. Meals at hotel were great; pool was great; as were the friendly staff. All in all, our group of 10 had a great stay at Fort Recovery.

Room Tip: Stayed at lower level 3-bedroom, ocean front. We could hear the water lapping from front bedroom and...

We stayed here at the recommendation of a good friend who lives in Tortola. We had a villa (#11) that was just perfect for what we wanted. It was clean and well appointed with everything we needed, the kitchen had a refrigerator, stove, microwave and dishwasher. The view of St. John and the Sir Francis Drake Channel were great and our own little private beach right in front of the villa was an added bonus. One really nice thing is we are AT&T cell users, Tortola is all roaming EXCEPT at our room where we had 5 bars from the tower across the channel on St. John. Rita was very accommodating and made the stay carefree! There is a car rental which is less than a 5 minute walk away. West End is for me, Roadtown can be too hectic,

Room Tip: Just talk to Rita, she will probably answer the phone. Villa 11 is just right for me!

We stayed at Fort Recovery prior to heading out on a week of cruising. It was the perfect way to start our vacation. The staff was incredibly welcoming and rooms were large and comfortable. They cooked up a terrific meal for our large party. The location was great away from the bustle of Road Town, but easy access. And what a view. The stay was made even better by a yoga class on the docks before we headed to the Marina. We'll be back.

We stayed here as a group of 10 for 2 days before a boat charter. We were in a 2 bedroom and 3 bedroom villa (5 couples). The transfer from the airport went smooth, we had arranged it through the hotel. The villas were lovely, with large and comfy sitting areas that we didn't use at all since we were always out on the deck to listen to the waves! The 3 bedroom had a large deck with a table, 2 sofas, and 3 steps to the sea. The 2 bedroom was set back maybe 10 steps from the sea, with a patio. We arrived in 2 groups, so 6 of us had a lovely dinner outside at the restaurant, and they prepared dinners for the other 4 and delivered them to their villa since they were arriving after the restaurant would be closed. Very nice! There is a mini mart (liquor and snacks) that we walked to down the road to have some things in the room. The next day some of us walked to Soper's Hole for lunch, some took a taxi, which returned at our pre-arranged time to return us.
While it could have been confusing with our 2 groups, checkout was smooth, and all transfers arranged by the staff went just fine. Yes, the grounds are rustic, with gravel paths through the trees, but the landscaping was beautifully well kept, and the villas were immaculate.

Stayed there in may last year, it was a nice apartment, can accommodate like 6 people, my room was just by the see, it felt pretty relax and quiet. Breakfast was poor, friendly staff, pretty far from town, rented a suv and was all day out of the property. I recommend the Place.
