Nice hotel with small, secluded beach front. About a 5-10 minute walk to lager beaches. Very friendly staff. The food here is phenomenal, almost everyone we talked to said it was the best on the island.
We had a wonderful three days at Fort Recovery !! The staff was excellent and very helpful with recommendations on things to do (Virgin Gorda and the Baths), getting a rental car and taxis, and other information about the island. We felt like we were the only guests there because our room was so private and it was very relaxing. I only wish we could have stayed a few more days.

I booked a special trip for a big birthday celebration and we had a week in Virgin Gorda and a week in Tortola. The Tortola visit was supposed to be the big finale costing 2x the Virgin Gorda portion. I was very disappointed.
Calling this a resort is a stretch. It's isolated and limited in terms of amenities. The restaurant and breakfast is ok if you eat anything but for dietary restrictions its poor. We explained the dietary issues on day one and the breakfasts every day did not accommodate the diets. This is a complex with only 8 accommodations and a restaurant and chef yet the ability to accommodate was poor. The tennis court was in good condition but was never swept. The rooms are ok but do not have all the amenities you would expect, no oven, no dishwasher, no laundry.
There is a sheltered man made cove for swimming but it had spiny sea urchins in it, the snorkeling outside the cove was in very rough waters all the time.
There are kayaks for use but no life vests.
There were often no towels near the pool.
The room had issues with dripping faucet, damaged freezer, broken bug screens.
There was ac in the bedrooms but not in the lounge area, the bedroom ac was controlled via NEST and the staff often changed it to away 82 degrees during the night.
I would absolutely not recommend this resort to anyone.
