This hotel is not really a secret. It is situated in a nice area, not too far from the airport and the ferry terminal. If you rent a car you will see road signs pointing to it. However, you will be picked up at the airport and driven back at the end of your stay. The hosts are what makes this place truly enjoyable. Mr. and Ms. Stevens will make sure you feel comfortable, they make themselves available all the time. They are kind, thoughtful and diligent and non-imposing. It is hard to imagine better hosts!
We have stayed at the cottage, which is a cottage only in name: this is just a separate-standing building with two rooms. Everything is nice, new and clean. Kitchen is well-stocked, Living room is good size. Should you decide not to venture out, you can stay in comfortably and use the pool. Most of the rooms are at the main building of the hotel.
The recommended beach is Beach Comber or the adjacent Indian Bay and are about 35 minute-walk or you can take a taxi (less than USD $10) or you can use the mini-vans that local folks use (about $.30 to the beach) but they are usually crammed.) We did not mind and traveled to Kingstown and to the beach by these vans. Actually, we even traveled North to Black Water Falls by van: about $12 for 3 people round-trip vs at least $100 round-trip by taxi).
The hotel food is really worth trying!
The hotel feels secluded and secure yet it is in close proximity to most points of interest. Definitely would recommend for a family stay or honeymooners, just take a look at the interior decorations on the hotel site! The photos are not an embellishment but truly represent the hotel and its character.
