Last time I was here, I came with my best friend, this time I brought my husband, his siblings and parents! We had an amazing time, and they immediately understood why I loved this place once there! The staff was incredibly courteous and polite, and it is worth noting patient too, since they made many calls to the front desk...

I would love to give this place a better review. While the staff was adequately friendly, I simply cannot give above 2 stars. Pros: Quiet atmosphere, nice views, the living room and kitchen were supplied efficiently to lounge and make breakfast Cons: The first night, the room smelt like urine and mildew/mold (which I later found out was on the...

I'd give Fisherman's 3.5 stars. The pros: The location is absolutely gorgeous and well-maintained, very quiet and remote, villas spacious and spotless, staff is extremely gracious and as accommodating as they can be, under the circumstances that some basic amenities are missing, which they don't have the power to provide. For instance, the website implies that there are food options...

This resort has the most beautiful views of any place we have ever stayed. If we return to Tortola in the future we will stay here again. We have traveled all over the Caribbean and decided on this trip, as we returned to BVI for the second time, that The BVI is our favorite destination of all. Frenchmans has everything...

I took my wife here for a birthday vacation for about 5 days. I wish we could have stayed another week! It's perfect for a totally relaxing vacation, VI style. You get the impression that this particular part of the earth has been a quaint resort for a very long time, but the amenities and buildings are all very modern....

My wife and I stayed at Frenchmans Oct 14 - Oct 21. We had a wonderful week celebrating our anniversary . Frenchmans is a small boutique resort with 9 separate and private villas. The restaurant and bar are centrally located between the arc of villas and the beach. The beach is private with very good snorkeling adjacent. All of the...

For us a vacation must have incredible scenery, great accommodations (where it doesn't feel too much like a hotel) and even better food and cocktails! Frenchman's met our needs perfectly and they didn't disappoint! Before our stay at Frenchmans we were at another hotel and left early because the service wasnt great. Frenchman's was incredibly flexible in changing our reservation...

Excellent accommodation in a quiet area of the Island. All staff very friendly and they made us feel very welcome. Breakfast was lovely as was the meal we had there.

“We stayed in Guava, a one bedroom, for most of our trip but moved to sugar apple, a two bedroom, for the last night. Even though both are amazing, the Sugar Apple had the best view and ocean breezes of the two.”
