We've been to Scrub Island twice, never come close to having any safety issues either on Scrub, taking a boat all around the BVI nor at the Beef Island Scrub Ferry Dock area. We also have been at the bar listening to music at night and never experienced anything like what that woman wrote. You'll notice there was never any follow up from her which might also be part of the "story".
We also have been so relaxed on our balcony drinking wine after supper that we fell asleep until the middle of the night and not had any issues either.
I hope you enjoy the resort as much as we have.
Hey fredaz, security procedures at Marriott properties are assessed continually. Local staff works closely with authorities to maintain security at our hotels. Because each property is unique, including configuration and location, individual security measures are adapted for each hotel. The safety and security of guests and employees is one of Marriott's top priorities.
I'd also like to give you a warm welcome to the Marriott Rewards Insider forum! Here members can share experiences, perspectives, photos, and ask questions to a group of experience travelers. Be sure to check out our Getting Started Guide for tips on how to enhance your Insiders experience. You're always welcome to reach out to me (CariJ), lindseyh, or joshm with any questions or concerns about anything Marriott Rewards or the Insiders site. We make up the moderation team for the forum and are here for support.
