Wyndham Tortola BVI Resort: What a (Isolated) Beach

Wyndham Tortola BVI Hotel Review is part of the Rum Rum Caribbean Castaway Trip Report.


Getting There: It isn’t worth renting a car when you are in BVI for work. There is no Uber but the prices for taxis from the airport are a flat rate.


I arrived in BVI a day late (see My Duck Up: You Need a Passport for British Virgin Islands) and am glad I did so. Instead of spending another day in a conference room (Should You Include Work Trips in Your Country Count?), I spent it asleep in a daybed overlooking the beach.a foot on a beach

The Beach 

This is an isolated hotel. There is nothing nearby. I would not recommend staying here if you’re here for work or if you want something to do when the sun goes down. When the sun is up, I would recommend skipping your work conference and doing nothing. The beach is Seychelles-esque.a beach with a sign and bushes a beach with plants and waves a sandy beach with waves crashing on the shore a beach with waves and hills in the background waves crashing on a beach a sandy beach with water and hills in the background a beach with waves and a hill in the background

The Food

The hotel’s isolation is bad because there are no restaurants or bars nearby. I had lunch at the hotel which was an overpriced roti that does not compare to the ones in Trinidad (see Where to Eat And Drink in Trinidad) and the Bushwacker, invented in BVI, was not the best. The view, on the other hand, is second to none. a plate of food with sauces and a bowl of salad a burrito on a plate a glass with a straw and a drinka beach with chairs and a beach umbrella

The Hotel Itself

The hotel was destroyed by Hurricane Irma and Maria. When I was there, it was under construction. I imagine it will be much nicer once the green comes back.a dirt field with houses and trees in the backgrounda path leading to a building

The Pool

The pool was great but I only had time to take photos. No time for a nice soak.

The Room

This is my first review of a Wyndham property. I was impressed with the room. The bed was comfortable, the Nespresso was fully stocked, and there was a mini-fridge should you be smart enough to buy beer outside the hotel. Free bottled water was provided.a bed with white sheets and pillows a bed with a canopy a bed with a light on it a room with a bed and a television on the wall a tray with tea cups and a water bottle on a table

The Bathroom

Quality soap, nice flowers.

The Bungalows

I have no status with Wyndham so I had a garden view room, but even bungalows that face the ocean have no view due to the vegetation.a palm tree in front of a house

Overall 

I stayed here because it was the most affordable option in Tortola. The hotel was fine but next time I’m in BVI, I plan on sleeping on my yacht.
