Great hotel and staff

Posted Feb 19, 2013 on Hotels
I spent 6 nights in a deluxe room at the Nail Bay Resort and generally agree with the other reviews here. It's not the fanciest hotel on Virgin Gorda but it is clean, quiet, pleasant and the staff is incredibly nice and helpful. They were extremely responsive with respect to all sorts of questions including helping me rent a car and book dive trips in advance. I would recommend renting a car to get around the island. Driving is a little stressful at first (very steep and curvy road and although the cars are American (steering wheel on the left) driving is on the left side of the road. But you get used to it pretty quickly as there isn't a lot of traffic and the island is not very big. Nail Bay has a nice beach with good snorkeling (Mountain Trunk Beach) and is about a 10 minute drive from the spectacular Savannah Bay Beach and about 15 minutes from Spanish Town. I would definitely go back to Nail Bay and I also highly recommend Dive BVI for scuba.

The Views!!

Posted Nov 30, 2012
This resort is absolutely lovely! The staff (especially Latha and Kasha in the office) were exceptionally friendly and helpful from the trip's start to the finish. The room (209) was clean, well maintained, super comfortable, and had an amazing view of the ocean and surrounding islands. The grounds are lovely, the restaurant food is good (albeit a slight limited menu), and the size of the property means that it could be completely booked and you would still feel like you had the place all to yourself! The beaches are gorgeous and the water was clear. A quick jaunt (via taxi or rented jeep) down the very hilly road and you're in Spanish Town or on your way to The Baths (a MUST-SEE!).

Small annoyances, but overall recommended

Posted May 29, 2011 on Hotels
Other than informercials the only TV available was AMC and a Chinese news station. The internet was intermittent at best. That said, if these things don't matter to you (they probably shouldn't when on vacation) then I highly recommend Nail Bay Resort. Great location, great views and scenery, clean comfortable rooms. If you go to dinner around sunset in the restaurant, however, take the bug spray. My wife got eaten up by mosquitoes.

Getting there is an adventure in itself!

Posted Jun 28, 2007
Nail Bay is blessed with an abundance of natural beauty: flowers in every color, palm trees, pristine beach, great snorkeling, even the remains of an abandoned sugar mill. However, as of now, to get there one leaves the paved main road and, for slightly over a mile, one travels on a rutted road up, down, and around the volcanic hills, driving British style on the left hand side of the road, in a car designed for the American market, i.e., steering wheel on the left, and the deep blue sea is sometimes just over one's shoulder. However, after just a few days we adjusted to the road and think of it as part of a really wonderful adventure. The hotel is in a beautiful location. Also enjoyed climbing in, out, over, under, and through the labyrinth of boulders known as The Baths at Virgin Gorda. The road to the abandoned copper mine, and the mine itself, can take your breath away. All the people we met were genuinely friendly. Our deluxe hotel room had a kitchenette and the balcony had a gas grill. It was a good vacation.

Pleasantly Surprised

Posted Jan 20, 2005
We were a little nervous having read some of the negative reviews but were pleasantly surprised to find a lovely resort with a clean, multi-roomed accommodation with many amenities. The appliances in the kitchen were spotless as well as the tableware. Our adult children were in a smaller bedroom with porch nearby but would join us for a self-made breakfast out on our large porch overlooking the bay. The restaurant had a limited menu but the food was surprisingly good. First thing we did was turn off the air conditioning, open the windows and enjoyed the ocean breezes. Waking at night to listen to the tree frogs and the pounding surf at a distance was especially enjoyable. The staff at the front desk weren't very knowledgeable about things beyond the resort so we had to do some work at finding a day sailing trip. The beaches around the resort are small but pretty. Don't lose your room key like we did. It cost us $90. We would recommend this resort as a good home base.

vacaciones para desconectar

Posted Aug 16, 2011 on Hotels
nuestra idea era encontrar un sitio tanquilo, con buenas playas, agua caliente y buen snorkel y puedo decir que la estancia en Nail Bay ha sido fantástica. la ubicación del hotel es perfecta con unas vistas maravillosas al mar y varias playas estupendas, ideales para snorkel, aun así recomiendo alquilar un vehículo para toda la estancia para recorrer la isla y todas las playas y lugares famosos para practicar el snorkel. Estuvimos en una habitación con cocina completa y una maravillosa terraza que incluía barcabacoa, los desayunos y las cenas en esa terraza han sido inolvidables, el personal del hotel encantador y muy eficaz. también probamos el spa y merece la pena. recomiendo tambien visitar un día la isla de Anegada, desde el puerto se accede en ferry, visitas las zonas de flamencos e iguanas, buen buceo y una buenísima langosta para comer. sin duda, si tenmos oportunidad voveríamos, eso si, ir preparados para los mosquitos de la mañana y del atarcedecer.
