We stayed at this hotel for only one night. The breakfast was good, food served warm and with a friendly smile. The coffee was REALLY good.

Great location in Tortola. Unfortunately, having been to lots of hotels in the Caribbean, unless you pay plenty for an expensive hotel, you only get a moderate hotel with usually poor service. It's as if everybody who works at these places isn't interested in their work or fed up, not appreciating that it is the tourists that keep them in... More

We stayed 2 nights here after our Moorings charter went bust. We were surprised by how crazy clean and spacious the rooms were. Very modern and comfortable. The staff was excellent and the breakfast was fantastic! We really enjoyed it!

Matter a fact it wasn't even a serving as no one ever visited our table in the 23 minutes we we're there. It had 4 tables with people on it, yet seems very slow and chilled. It was so disappointed to have wasted our time, however we did enjoy the breeze. Basically the service sucks. P.s we went to purssur'... More

Beautiful waterfront views in this downtown restaurant located in RoadTown. Seems clean staff was polite order was correct but very slow service. Also, necer came back to see if we needed anything else only one other couple in the place at the same time. Food was average and ok prices.

Just returned from a BVI vacation. We started by staying one night at Maria's by the Sea. Nice rooms if you stay in the newer part of the hotel. The restaurant experience was no so good. Slow I mean Very Very Slow Service. Be prepared to wait for everything they are understaffed. I waited at the bar and watched the... More

We had a room right over the pool with a view of the harbor. We walked down the street and had dinner a a place recommended by the front desk, and... More

I didn't actually stay at Maria's. I had placed a reservation online using their website but on arrival I was told the reservation had not been acknowledged and would not be honoured as there were no rooms. The reception staff said I could have a room on the second of the two nights booked but not the first. Then I... More
