Perfect location to get away and relaxPosted Nov 20, 2013
Pros: Clean, nicely decorated. Loved the balcony had room to lounge. Staff was fabulous. Beaches were wonderful. Private atmosphere.
Cons: Wish we could've opened up the louvered windows that led to the balcony (boarded down) to get a good cross-breeze instead of having to use the AC.
This was the perfect location to get away from it all. We were able to relax with a good book on the beach which was beautiful. There were plenty of lounge chairs spread out to give privacy if you desired. We were able to snorkel right from Deadman's beach; stay to the left along the rocks for the best snorkeling. We also spent 3 different days at White Bay beach, gorgeous! Beautiful with just 6 "shelters" on the entire beach. Each shelter had 2 lounge chairs, 2 chairs and a table. There was drinking water, a fresh water shower and bathroom facilitates that were kept clean and nice. The snorkeling from the beach was great, but once again the best was along each end along the rocks. We saw rays, reef squid, eels, turtles and hundreds of juvenile fish among the colorful coral. The water was clear, warm and calm. The staff was so friendly and eager to make your stay the best it could be. The excursions were also good, although the sailing trip to The Baths were too rough and churned up to snorkel when we went so the captain took us to Cooper Island to snorkel after we'd seen the Baths, it gave us the best of both worlds. Also enjoyed the quick 2 hour snorkel trips to the Caves and the Islands, both locations I'd go see again as the snorkeling was fabulous. Overall a great vacation spot that I'd highly recommend. However, realize this is not for those who love the nightlife, stay on Tortola if that's what you want.

Far from maddening crowds...Posted Nov 3, 2013
Pros: Rooms, staff, views, island beauty, beaches
Cons: Meal options
Location: Virgin Gorda, the Baths Norman Island, snorkeling the Caves and the Indians St Thomas, shopping Tortola, more restaurants including Pussers
This is a great place if you like quiet, feeling of isolation yet with many comforts and luxury. The beaches are great, the staff caters to many requests, and it is great getaway. The snorkeling is decent and not difficult. It is easy to get to other islands in the BVI from here. People seem to come back to this place for the views, beaches, relaxation, romance, and great staff. Many have worked on the island for years. The only real downside is the expense and food selection; consider getting the food plan as options are limited since there is only 1 restaurant open for dinner every night. There are 2 onsite but for dinner even though one is more formal and the other less so the choices are very similar. The other option is to eat hearty at breakfast and eat a late lunch at Deadman's Bar and Grill, which is better than Tradewinds the more formal restaurant or take the ferry and go to Tortola. All in all would recommend if you like quiet, no TVs and beautiful views with most of the comforts of home.

perfect island getawayPosted May 9, 2013 on Hotels.com
One of the best places for a vacation we have been to. We enjoyed the beauty of Peter Island, perfect beaches, excellent food and very nice staff. We were impressed how well the island is maintained. There are wind turbines, rain water irrigation systems and a desalination station for excellent drinking water. The ocean front rooms are ok but a little outdated. We actually preferred the ocean front room location at the harbor close to the bar and Tradewinds restaurant. Upper floors have the better views. Beach front junior suites are in better shape and offer more space we were told. They are closer to the beach restaurant and only a short walk to main resort. Of course you can always ask for a shuttle. They have several golf cart type shuttles and mini buses. The villas are very nice. We would consider to stay in one of the three villas if we were going with 3 or more couples and kids. Overall we liked the secluded feeling of the island with only a few rooms (32 ocean front rooms, a few beach front suites, plus three villas which seem to be rarely occupied). We were not sure about the extra cost for food and drinks at the time of booking. It is easy to spend $500 per day (for two) at the restaurants and bars - although we have to admit that the food was mostly excellent. Check out the 'all inclusive' offers which we unfortunately did not find on hotels.com.
Lovely setting but dated facilitiesPosted Feb 27, 2013 on Hotels.com
The island itself is wonderful. It's in a beautiful setting and there are a number of areas on the island to explore. That said, the facilities were very dated. The shower in our room was old and cracked and did not feel very clean. The doors to the patio were dark wood with small windows, and did not stay open. It was impossible to just enjoy the fresh air and view while you were inside. Only one restaurant is open each evening which gets pretty old if you were staying multiple nights. The beach restaurant had harsh lighting in the evening which took away from the romantic nature of the setting. I give the hotel high scores for Deadman's Beach but otherwise it just wasn't the luxury hotel that it bills itself as.

Peter Island Extremely RelaxingPosted Jun 5, 2008
My wife and I had an incredible time there. The beaches were beautiful and well kept. The staff was very friendly and made it a point to know you by name. Outstanding food at every meal. The only down side was that the entire island shut down at 11 PM so the evenings ended early. Would definitely go back again.

Peaceful & RelaxingPosted May 28, 2008
My husband & I went as per a high recommendation from our neice & her husband. The island is lovely, as is the hotel, the beach is wonderful. The food is outstanding, and "most" of the help/staff can't do enough for you...but a few others have a knack of looking right thru you, as if you weren't there. But if you're from a busy city accustomed to a hectic pace, realize these folks are on "island time". It takes a few days to learn how to chill out & relax, and that's what one needs to do. We've been to other "all inclusives" that have a lot more going on: activities/games/group participation/evening entertainment/movies/disco, etc, similar to a cruise ship, and that tends to overwhelm. This retreat has none of that, yet there is always something to do should you choose to. There is an island tour, a sunset viewing on the top of the island, a trip to White Bay Beach w/ a boxed lunch, a Manager's Party w/ complimentary cocktails (all recommended & hosted by the hotel). Musical entertainment is "lite" steel drum and raggae, stilt walkers; all ends early. This place is total relaxation and we enjoyed that. Didn't do any excursions, even cancelled a day trip to St Thomas (no shopping & I survived), stayed on Peter Is and enjoyed the beach, peace & tranquility. Island hoppers/boat people drop anchor in the harbor and visit the island; they can be an interesting lot to chat with.

Lovely place...Posted Jun 29, 2007
Peter Island Resort was first class all the way. The all-inclusive price was great, and they provided services to and from Tortola in that price. The food is better than some of the other resorts, like Little Dix where we spent more time. The chef even gave me one of his recipes. Highly recommend!
