To be completely candid and honest, I want to say that Rosewood on Little Dix Bay was over all a very enjoyable experience. However, as contradictory as it may sound, I would not go back to Rosewood nor would I recommend it to a friend. I think, with research, there are better places to stay on Virgin Gorda which had some of the most beautiful water and beaches I have ever experienced. The water and beaches surpass, in my opinion, Hawaii, the West Indies, and the Bahamas. I loved diving/snorkeling while on this trip. However, when I return to Virgin Gorda, I prefer to stay in a villa where I can prepare some simple meals, especially breakfast and lunch. The Rosewood Resort charged ridiculously outrageous prices for the food. The nightly buffet was $80.00 per person. The meal plan per person for breakfast, lunch, and dinner was $150.00. That is $300.00 a day per person which would be $2100.00 for a week's stay for a couple. I think that is outrageous. A person is on this remote island with a few other restaurants, but if a car is not rented then one must pay taxi fares back and forth to the restaurants. The food issue gets to be entirely too much. The food is entirely too expensive. I do want to say the entire staff was gracious, kind, and helpful.

Thank you for taking the time to review your experience at Rosewood Little Dix Bay. We're glad to read that you did enjoy your stay, and loved the pristine setting of Virgin Gorda, we are truly lucky to be on such a beautiful, untouched island.
With regards to your comments on our food & beverage program, we are sorry to read that you felt our pricing did not meet your expectations. We do our best to keep our pricing as reasonable as possible, but please keep in mind that we are on an island that is far removed from major commercial trade, so we do have to bring in a lot of food, which can add to the cost. Where we can, we strive to source products locally and highlight the unique flavors of Virgin Gorda and BVI produce, so this as well can add to the cost.
If you are interested in an amazing villa experience, we do offer luxury villas complete with private pools, barbecue pavilions, full kitchens which can be stocked on request, and of course spacious rooms with en suite baths. Villa guests have access to dedicated concierge services, as well as golf carts for mobility around the resort.
We certainly understand that you would like to visit other resorts or hotels on your next trip, however we do hope to welcome you back in case you decide to return to Rosewood Little Dix Bay!
