Exotic setting in a convenient location”
Staff was great with good service. Close to Pelican Bar and YS Falls and other locations.
We were able to use this hotel as a hub for exploring local sites. They provided two rooms next to each other at our request. It is a small hotel located in an interesting interesting setting in the jungle with nice decks to eat and view the water. The Staff was nice, helpful and prepared good meals. This was a memorable stop in our travels and at a reasonable price. They have recently expanded to include a waterside restaurant. We didn't spend much time in St Elizabeth but it looks interesting so we will come again!

Freundlich aber etwas verschlafen”
Schöne Verandah mit beeindruckender Aussicht
zimmer nr.7 ist ebenerdig mit fenster zum innenhof und eingangsbereich und sehr kleinem fenster gegenüberliegend, jedoch schön geräumig mit sitzgelegenheit.
zum frühstück gab es omlette ohne schinken, käse, tomaten und 2 saure orangen sowie toast, butter, marmelade.
es waren wenig gäste da und somit kein service an der gemütlichen bar. beim nachtwächter konnte man jedoch ein bier bestellen. das personal war sehr freundlich und bemühte sich umgehend ausgesprochene wünsche zu erfüllen. das meer war ruhig und man konnte weit hinausschwimmen. strandliegen waren nicht aufgestellt. wir haben uns wohl gefühlt, jedoch war der preis für die leistung etwas zu hoch.
