We loved our stay on Saba - we went to hike and see all the different eco zones. Juliana's was quite lovely - our room was clean and we had an ocean view from the first floor. I had wanted to get a cottage but we were only there for one night and the cottages were not available for nightly rental. The view from our room was gorgeous and we had a hammock to relax in - which was perfect.
We had hoped to eat at the restaurant (Tropics) on site but it was TGIF (friday night) and it was packed with partying bar folks and it was kind of noisy so we had a quiet meal at Scouts instead - which was beautiful. Scouts has a new young dutch chef who introduced himself after our meal and was quite charming as well as talented. My snapper with red bell pepper sauce was excellent and my husband's mahi-mahi creole was delicious. We shared a home-made apple tartine which was also wonderful!
When we returned to go to bed - there was a little left over noise from the bar at Juliana's but we were so tired from hiking that we fell to sleep instantly.
Overall we loved Juliana's - the owners/manager were very nice - gave us lots of good advice on hiking trips and even gave us a free round of his fabulous coconut pancakes - (worth every carb in them) when we ordered the delicious complementary breakfast. It was a bit noisy staying on the first floor on a Friday night - but we are not drinkers or bar people and tend to want more quiet than most. The restaurant at night seemed to be more of a bar than a restaurant but there are many other options within a short walking distance in Windward if you want quiet or have young kids and again - it was a Friday night so maybe the rest of the week is quieter. The location is perfect and the proprieters were really really nice so next time - we will just have to stay longer and get a cottage instead. Thank you Juliana's for a lovely stay!
