Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina in Scrub Island, British Virgin Islands

My husband and I celebrated our 25th anniversary at this resort. We spent 8 nights and enjoyed every moment. We were upgraded to a suite that had a lovely view of the marina, full kitchen and washer/dryer. The room was very nice with a few quirks. We just couldn't get the shower temp right either too cold or too hot :) Champagne problems. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The dive BVI shop staff were outstanding. I'd recommend signing up for any trips early because they fill up quickly. We also sailed on the Aristocrat day sail on the "lion Heart". This was a wonderful day of sailing and snorkeling. They served a lovely lunch and all the drinks you want. The island hopper with dive BVI was also a really fun day. We went to Virgin Gorda on our own and had a great day! Be sure to have lunch at the top of the baths, the view is outstanding. We enjoyed the kayaks and exploring various places. The beach across from honeymoon beach was much nicer. It has beautiful sandy beaches. If you continue down towards the mangroves you will see lots of interesting things. We saw sting rays, conch, bone fish and a sea turtle. We enjoyed the hike to Big scrub but it does take about 45 minutes. Also check out the happy hour on Marina Key M - F from 5pm to 7:30pm the music is great. Near the general store in tortola (where the ferry drops you off) they BBQ jerk chicken on Fri and Sat, it was great. Overall we had a wonderful trip and look forward to returning. Be sure to check out my husbands stone trees on the rocks in North beach! He can't sit still on the beach. He made 25 for each year we have been married. Hopefully you will add to them!

My husband and I were very fortunate to have spent 5 nights in a Governors Suite at the Scrub Island Resort earlier this month. We'd been searching for a fabulous resort from where we could easily access world class scuba diving and had almost decided on the Ritz Carlton in Grand Cayman, but a few more searches in the Marriott directory of Caribbean properties coupled with googling best diving and voila! - The website for the resort is very well organized, including a page on "how to get to Scrub Island", which led us to chose spending 5 nights at the Marriott on St. Thomas then taking a non-stop 8:30 am Ferry to the Road Town Ferry Port on Tortolla to get there and flying out of EIS or "Beef Island" on an 8 passenger prop to connect in San Juan on the way out. The interisland Ferry Schedule for each of the 4 Ferry Companies that go from St. Thomas to Tortolla is published online, but it changes according to season. On Tortolla, after clearing customs, we caught a taxi to the Trellis Bay Ferry and arrived at the resort before noon. - We took advantage of the Wolf/Sub Zero kitchen to make a few relaxing dinners and breakfast in our suite with all of the doors open to our huge wrap around veranda. We were able to purchase some food items in the deli/gourmet market, but purchased frozen tuna & shrimp along with produce and wine from the little store at Trellis Bay. There is wine for sale in the deli on Scrub Island, but annoyingly most of it doesn't have price tags. If we'd known the grocery selection at the gourmet market was so limited we would have had our taxi driver stop for groceries on our way to Trellis Bay. Lesson learned. However, sitting on your veranda listening to the waves crash and watching sail boats & yachts go by while you sip mimosas doesn't suck, making it really hard to complain about the lack of groceries. - One day we walked around the entire island and stopped for a couple of hours at the North Beach where we enjoyed margarita's on a nearly deserted beach and took pictures of a pelican who kept diving down for fish. Finishing the loop we stopped in at the Spa on what I'd call the wild side of the island. It's a gorgeous view, resort guests can enjoy the facilities for free (not the services) and platinum Marriott members get 20% off of spa supplies. - One of the servers at Tierra! Tierra! had told us about the Trellis Bay full moon party, so we took the ferry over and had some local food while watching fire dancers, live music and fires lit in giant balls on the beach. We'd heard of the Tortolla full moon party at Bomba's and frankly in retrospect should have made the trek to Bomba's, but in either case we would have run into the problem with the ferry having to leave people on the docks when it met capacity. The dates for each years' full moon parties are published online. - For 2 days we went scuba diving with Dive BVI. All 4 dives were different, including the Chimney, a sunken aircraft, and 2 sections of the 310' Wreck of the Rhone that was sunk during a hurricane in 1867. Phenomenal diving! We signed up at the dive shop on Scrub Island and then hopped on the Dive BVI boat that pulled up to our marina each morning. Their boats are perfect for diving and their crew is first rate. - One day we took a ferry from Trellis Bay to Virgin Gorda, then a taxi the the Baths. This trip is well worth the effort. (The resort offers an excursion there, but it conflicted with our diving). - On Scrub Island, we made the effort to go down the water slide, once, and to climb up on the floating trampoline, just to say we did (and to complete the GoPro video of our trip), but I wouldn't have to do those again next time we stay at the resort. We will however, go kayaking again. The crystal blue water is just spectacular. - I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the huge silver tarpon at night. Out by the Ferry dock the lights from under the dock and yachts light up the water and apparently attract these 2-3' fish that are cool to watch play in the light. - On our last night we drank our last bottle of Champagne, then hopped on the Trellis Bay Ferry which stops at Pussers at the recommendation of fellow resort guests who suggested we have dinner there instead of Caravela's. This choice was our only bad decision of our trip. - We had only 1 issue while we were at the resort, that being while I was in the shower the water stopped coming out of the shower head. A call to the front desk confirmed they were having a problem and working on it. About 1/2 an hour later it was back on. The resort apologized and tried to give us free breakfast, but we had omelets and mimosas in our suite instead! - One of the cool things about flying out of EIS on our little prop plane was that our plane took off toward Scrub Island, then circled around it and headed for Puerto Rico. This made for some great aerial photos, so bring your camera with your zoom lens in your carry on. - Scrub Island is a great resort. If you are looking for a night club scene, this isn't it. If you want a spa, sailing school, scuba diving/snorkeling, pool bars and beaches with drink/food service, amazing rooms and breath taking scenery in a quiet setting where you can relax, this is definitely the place. - All of the staff we encountered at the resort was professional, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. They really seem to enjoy working on property and they made our stay a true pleasure.

This had to be one of the best places I have stayed in a long time. My wife and I had scheduled 5 days on Scrub to do nothing but just relax; we ended up staying an additional 3 days due to how relaxing it was. We had a small issue with our room and were upgraded to a suite. Thanks Zita, you made our stay all the better. From the professional and friendly wait staff, especially Neil our resort tour guide, Eddy at the pool shed, Marilyn at the restaurant and Cheryl down at the deli. They just kept us smiling. The beaches were uncrowded and you could always find a place to be alone if you wanted to be. The full moon provided enough light for our late night walks around the Island. We were there during the full moon beach party on Trellis Bay, which was a unique experience in itself. I only had a couple of issues, no soap in the men's restroom by the pool the whole time we were there and sometimes it was a challenge to get ice delivered. The only reason I mentioned the first is because employees also use these restrooms. Overall, it was a great stay and highly recommended. We will be back, as I have found my new favorite place. I also hope this review makes it to the staff as they need to hear what a great job they do.

We were celebrating my wife's birthday and spent eight nights in February at this awesome Resort. As a Marriott lifetime Platinum Status we mostly try to frequent Marriott Resorts and this was the nicest one we have visited so far. We happened to be there at the same time as a large business group so our much hoped for Suite Upgrade did not happen. However we were very delighted with our room in the Presidential building. Since we had to fly into St. Thomas, the journey to get to the resort involved airplane, taxi, water Ferry, taxi and then the hotel shuttle boat. Much easier to fly directly into Beef Island if you can. Can't say enough good things about the staff of the resort... everyone you meet is pleasant and accommodating. The restaurant choices range from breakfast sandwiches or lunch sandwiches at the deli to a casual restaurant, or the more formal restaurant Caravela. All three are excellent. We celebrated Valentine’s Day in Caravela and the meal, wine, service, ambiance and overall experience was very nice. We also recommend eating on Beef Island at the couple of restaurants close to where the resort Ferry picks up and drops off. Also the restaurant Pussers on Marina Cay is very good. For fun in the sun you will find water sports for your convenience located at the private beach right next to the pool area. Paddle boards, kayaks all of the above just for signing them out (and of course your daily resort fee). There is an excellent snorkeling spot that is accessible by kayak maybe a 15 minute paddle from the resort. Tie up to a floating buoy and off you go. Beautiful. For hanging out in the sun you can't beat North Beach. Find a couple of lounge chairs on the private Pavilions that are dotted along the shore in front of the beach. Grab a drink and a burger at the restaurant there. It's walkable or there is a shuttle that will take you back and forth from the resort. If you do like walking, it’s a great way to see this little Island by walking around the road that goes to North Beach and circles back to the resort. We chartered a small 19 foot power boat for the day complete with Captain. Since we've been to the British Virgin Islands a couple of times we knew where we wanted to go but if you haven't been there, the captain will gladly recommend a route that shows you quite a bit of the area in the eight hour day. We visited and snorkeled around the Baths, Cooper Island, and then from there to Sandy Cay and Jost Van Dyke to hang out with Foxy and of course head to the Soggy Dollar Bar for a painkiller. Highly recommended. On my desk are several pictures of this beautiful slice of paradise. As I endure never ending conference calls and meetings, my mind drifts back to the water, beach, and amazing views, and all is well with the world. This is what a vacation is for, right? We are already planning our trip back.

I suppose there are really only a few treasures in the world and this has to be one of them. This year, 2017 was my second trip here and I can only hope for many more. Unfortunately this was just written up in a quite famous magazine as one of the top 5 islands in the world. You know what that means……………it’s pristine isn’t going to last much longer.
