Frenchmans must rank as one of the best places I have ever stayed. Four of us stayed in a two-bed cottage which was just fantastic. Very classy, fully equipped, and with a great view of the bay. The place is very quiet and laid-back, but with real charm and sophistication. It has been designed and put together to a very... More

I've been going to Tortola (and loving it) my whole life and this place blows the rest of the resorts out the water. Jump off the ferry from St. Thomas and it's a two minute drive. Sure there are luxury places to stay on or off-island in the area but you can't beat Frenchman's superior attributes; in combination, it's a... More

My husband and I started our honeymoon here and finished in St. Lucia. Frenchmans and Tortola was by far our favorite! We loved so much about this place, but I have to say the service, especially Juliesa, is what made this truly amazing. The food is incredible, you feel like you are on your own private island on Tortola. We... More

The Staff of the Frenchmen were extremely friendly and professional. Our "villa" was fabulous and the restaurant superb. Each meal is prepared individually by a world class chef. The attention to detail was unbelievable. If you are in need of decompression this is the perfect spot. You will need to rent a car to get around the island but it... More

Frenchmans delivered an A+ stay in mid-December. The grounds are beautiful, the 2 story, one-bedroom unit (with a full kitchen) we stayed in was spacious and laid out to catch the wind blowing steadily off the ocean, breakfast, included in the room price, was creative, delicious, and overly generous! Coffee is french pressed. The restaurant is open air, right down... More

Frenchmans’ villas and property surroundings are a view of their own in B.V.I. – they are just as they appear in the website pictures. On the other hand, as much as one might be impressed when arriving to the hotel, the real experience begins when booking a villa - my first contact with the staff provided me with a full... More

My family was blown away by the hospitality we received by all the employees of the resort. Thank You. If you are looking for a great location to relax and enjoy BVI.

All I can say is this place is awesome and they have great food. Loved the wind blowing through the bedroom at night. Very quiet at night and a great place to look at the stars. Can't wait to go back.

We had an amazing experience at Frenchmans in September. Frenchman’s provided excellent customer service from the moment we booked the trip until we left. Since it was our honeymoon, we were “stuck” with our travel dates and after booking, the staff reached out to let us know that the island would be rather quite during our trip since it was... More

This resort is small, tranquil and isolated, but on a small island nothing is far. We found several good restaurants and were close to the marina for sailing excursions and trips to the neighboring islands. The resort itself is clean, and the staff cannot do enough for the guests. Each bungalow had its own kitchen, porch and living room. All... More

“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.”
