Hotel recommendations

I am looking for some assistance in choosing a hotel and/or area to stay in December. We will be staying 2 days either side of a cruise (before and after Christmas). We are looking for something middle of the range (max 100 euro) and close to a town. First time in the Caribbean and don't want to be in a resort.

Emailed peach and quiet but reply indicated they are already full for December.

I think you will have problems, both with your budget (Christmas is silly season for prices, and I don't think 100euros a night will get you anything near middle of the road) and availability because a lot of places have a minimum stay requirement, particularly around Christmas.

Have you tried places in the Gap like Yellow Bird, South Gap, Rostrevor? I would think they are above your budget though, especially at that time of year. You could also try Worthing Court and Southern Surf?

I would suggest you either stay near Holetown or St Lawrence Gap if you are not staying on a resort as there are plenty of bars, restaurants etc in both. Holetown is on the west, where beaches are generally narrower, calmer, the nightlife is also calmer, whereas the Gap is south and has a wider beach with more waves and a bit more nightlife.

There are a few hotels you could try, Southern Palms is very popular, on a nice beach and within walking distance of restaurants etc, but not sure it would fit into your budget - is the 100 euro per night per room or per person?

There's also Little Arches, which is on the south, also not cheap, but quite popular. Dover Beach Hotel is more budget, Ocean's 15 has recently reopened and not sure of their new rates.

I know a lot of hotels have a minimum three night stay though, so you might encounter some issues as December is peak season...

Good luck!
