This good-value hotel is a happening spot, with live music in the beach bar and a popular restaurant. It’s located on the North Shore at Little Apple Bay, about a 15-minute drive from Road Town. The rooms are housed in three buildings, with only one, a two-story, right on the beach. All are done in a sunny tropical motif, with tile floors, but the most sought-after are the light and airy beachfront rooms, some mere steps from the surf, others with views from second-floor balconies. The rear accommodations (“tropical yard” rooms) feel like country cottages, with apple-green wainscotting and beamed ceilings, but lack sea views—but, really, nothing is farther than a short crawl to the beach. You can also stay in one of the seven spacious new Seaside Villas (winter $250–$350; off season $150–$250) all of which have stunning ocean views. Sebastian’s Seaside Grille overlooks the bay and has a solid menu of island and continental favorites.
