Virgin Gorda Village
Ranked #1 of 3 Virgin Gorda B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 12, 2009

We stayed in a second floor condo with a beautiful view of the water (and sunrises), although we were not directly on the water (none of the condos are). As others have mentioned, the road was visible from the deck of the condo, but it was actually a source of entertainment, as we would watch the goats and chickens wandering up and down it while we enjoyed our late afternoon post-dive cocktail hour. We could hear some street noise from the deck, but it was not obnoxious and the bedrooms themselves were fairly quiet, except for the roosters who seem to crow starting at 3 a.m. and intermittently then on.

The condos are very nicely decorated and we enjoyed using our kitchen (although we also went out to eat at several of the good restaurants on the island). Maid service could be a little better, but otherwise the property was bright, cheery, clean, with a good on premises restaurant. A jeep rental for at least a few days is a must for exploring the island. The resort has a pleasant pool area with bar and restaurant -- expensive, but good quality.

The owner/manager of Dive BVI is on premises which meant that this is an excellent place to stay if you want to dive. Dive BVI is one of the most professional dive operations with which I have ever had the pleasure of diving -- really outstanding staff, very safety conscious and service-oriented. I wish I could replicate them for anywhere else I might want to dive. The dive shop is a short (2 minute) drive away at the yacht harbor, and Dive BVI handled our transportation.

Had a great time at Olde Yard Village. Staff was great. Condo was very clean and the location was great for snooping around the island.

We were a group consisting of one couple and 2 others, so the 3 bedroom top floor unit was ideal. Previously we have stayed in the apartments at Nail Bay, and 2 different villas at Mahoe Bay. We chose Olde Yard for this trip because of cost, and we did not feel like we had made much of a sacrifice at all. It is true that you can't walk to the beach, but we were going to so many different beaches during the week that we did not really miss it. The pool is attractive, the bar is pleasant, the wireless internet works, and our cell phones (Verizon) worked from there also. We enjoyed seeing and hearing the goats and roosters across the road, and were not bothered by the road noise. There was always an excellent breeze through the unit. We would definitely go back if the opportunity arises.

I fell in love with Virgin Gorda many years ago and now with Old Yard Village I will be able to go back again and again without breaking the bank.

First of all the facilities are amazing - tennis courts, gym, fabulous pool, relaxing bar and restaurant area.

Secondly the apartment we stayed in was decorated beautifully and had everything we needed. It is great having a small kitchen available so you don't have to go out every meal - breakfast can just be a bowl of corn flakes while you are still in your pyjamas, but if you want more you can always go to the restaurant.

I was travelling with a 7 and 10 year old and there was enough quite activity for them so I could lounge and read books that I have been collecting for months and haven't had the time to read.

I will definitely be going back again, and again.

My wife and I just spent a week at Olde Yard Village and we loved it. We actually met people who were staying for a month and we plan to do the same next year we loved the island so much. Our condo was beautiful with all new furniture and the view was great.
The beaches were all about 5 minutes away by car (our favorite was Savannah)! We decided to stay at the hotel one day and the pool was perfect for lounching (it has a bar and a restaurant attached). The fine dining at night at the Baracuda restaurant (right next to the pool) was great....pasta is the best..The chef from New York makes the pasta from scratch each day! We preferred to get our exercise by walking the scenic back roads but there is a small gym on-site that is brand new and airconditioned and tennis courts. According to my wife the spa was small but she was very happy with the manicure she got. The photos on this site do not do this place justice. The photos on the website are more accurate (we think the photos here are pre-rennovation..we were told it has been rennovated over the last year)...now it is so beautiful just like the website photos portray. We've already made our reservation for next year!

We checked out after seeing the hotel location, which sits on the a very noisy (old construction trucks) main road and is not within walking distance of a beach. Virgin Gorda is a small beautiful island and you should choose a beach or waterfront hotel as the rest of the island is just dry scrubland. We moved to the Bitter End Yacht club which was great, but most of the other hotels are also on the water.

We just returned from 10 wonderful days in Virgin Gorda. We stayed at the Olde Yard Village condos and were very pleased with the accommodations there. Beautifully decorated with a wonderful pool and professional tennis court. There is even a restaurant with excellent food and service. A full functioning workout room was also available. We love this island. The people there are phenomenally nice and friendly. The beaches are beautiful and breathtaking. Many times we found that we had the entire beach to ourselves. No-one is there trying to sell you something, or wanting you to pay to have your hair braided. It is really a place where you can totally relax. We didn't want to leave. We've already booked a trip there for next February!
