One Love / No Love
      #1738290 - 07/11/17 07:05 PM (68.105.119.10)

Just finished BVI Cruise #7. Normally, I have lived by "If you dont have something nice to say....Dont say anything". This is the exception. The ladies at One Love Bar on White Bay JVD are downright RUDE. After giving them the 'benefit of a doubt' on previous trips...this last visit was the final straw for me and my Happy Go Lucky family of 5. No matter how hard we tried to be super friendly to them....they are just miserable people and Jerks to their customers. Its apparent that many feel the same way.....as their business was non-existent the 3 nights we were on anchor there this past Thurs, Fri & Sat. I used to Love One Love. A killer spot. But these ladies have ruined the Vibe there. We are done supporting Sedde until changes are made. Hopefully others do the same and he gets a Clue that friendly people are key to keeping his business alive.

We were there last week and they couldn't have been nicer. And they had a pretty good crowd. Go figure.

I find it interesting that after 7 cruises (and I assume you mean charters), you have only 1 post and that is a complaint. How about the rest of your trip? Not worth commenting on the wonderful things you hopefully saw? And why stay in the same place 3 nights if you didn't like the way you were treated? Something doesn't add up. Just sayin'.

I have had the exact same experience at One Love. The post was accurate.

I stand corrected.....we have been on 7 "Charters" in the BVI. And loved EVERY one of them. The place is Special !! I wasnt aware of this site until last week while in the BVI. After talking with several 'Locals' on JVD....they all were fully aware of the 'negative attitude' of the women at One Love. In fact.....the Locals told me about this site and urged me to write a review of One Love. They hoped it would be read by the appropriate people and 'Maybe' something would be done about the Rude treatment of guests there. Its just not the JVD way of life. Afterall....they said they live by the saying "One Love". Last reply I will make re the post above ....we stayed 3 nits on JVD out of our 14 day 'Charter' because we will never let a few rotten eggs affect our Love of the BVI !! :o))

As someone who has logged many an hour on a bar stool at One Love, I can assure you that any time the ladies there have been rude or ignored someone (at least in my presence), it is because the customer came up and didn't have any sort of greeting other than "I want", rather than a "hey, how's it going". Once that tone is set, you're likely to get a cold shoulder no matter how "super friendly" you try to be.

One Love is one of the most laid-back places on the planet and has a huge following of regulars. As for their non-existent evening business, they don't attempt to draw an evening crowd. They do dinners by request, if you reserve early enough in the day (so they can have staff on hand to cook and serve) but dinner is not their main business.

I can assure you that we are always very friendly and understand the Island customs. It was not returned the last time we were there.

Same with us GeorgeC1. We are not the problem. And One Love was 'dead' the entire 3 days we were there last week. So I have to believe others are done with the attitude as well.

We were beginning to think we were the only ones that felt that way. After our last visit, no more One Love for us..and that makes me sad because I really want to like it there.

Was there with my family last week and had the same experience. Woman behind the bar wouldn't acknowledge my daughter and myself after a very polite greeting to her. Never returned to One Love the rest of the trip.
