We spent a week at the Bequia Beach Hotel at the beginning of May and enjoyed a most relaxing, peaceful vacation. Apparently we had arrived at the start of the 'low season' and things on the island had really started to slow down - consequently we were among a handful of couples staying at the hotel and it was bliss. The staff were attentive and friendly, quick to note if we needed towels and seat coverings brought across to the beach loungers or wanted food/ beverages, but never obtrusive. That feeling of calm permeated throughout the hotel - it was lovely to hear the sound of the sea, or birds in the garden, rather than annoying disco music or non-stop radio chatter!
The hotel is spread out over a beautiful garden with a variety of rooms. We stayed in a 'beachfront room' on the ground floor that lead out directly on to the beach with the sound of the waves breaking at night. I'd highly recommend. Other rooms were set back either rising up the hillside (a few stairs but with nice views and a second swimming pool) or what appeared to be within small cottages. The interior furnishings were fantastic - beautiful and of excellent quality - the Scandinavian owner's aesthetic was clear to see!
In fact the owner was on-site throughout our stay, eating in the restaurant every evening, sometimes alone or hosting guests. The hotel manager (a local lady who had previously worked in hospitality in London before returning home) was also present throughout, checking with guests that everything was in order. The overall impression was of a professional, well managed establishment.
Clearly our stay coincided with a quiet period (one that I'd recommend, the weather was excellent) so I'm guessing things would be much more lively in high season. However the hotel grounds feel so spacious that I can't ever imagine it feeling over run or crowded. And Bequia Island is a delight - charming, traditional and with some of the friendliest people we've met in the Caribbean.
