This is my second time here and I have to admit that I really love it, this is the ZEN kind of place with breathtaking views, basic facilities and good service. El Momo is a budget aternative for nature lovers. The manager Andries was very nice and did everything to make our 14 days with them great.

If you don´t mind just basic accommodation then this is for you. Nice price, good service, breakfast and....... beautiful scenery all around. Good starting point for a walk. Supermarket within 20 minutes walk.

Lovely, quiet cottages just outside (but within walking distance) from Windwardside in Saba. Really gives the feel of being in nature. Owner Andries gives a friendly, personal service. I stayed in the cottage in the sky. This is quite a climb (as is actually the whole place) but for me worth the view. Room, small kitchen and shower were fine.

We went to Saba last year for five days, we did not dive but we went hiking. We booked at el momo cottage because of the reviews of tripadvisor, we loved it, I loved it, I miss it soooo much, yes it was a little challenging to walk up the stairs to the cottage, but that was nothing compared to...

We had a great stay at El Momo. It is perfectly located at the middle of the island, the cottages totally fits into the island atmosphere and makes your Saba experience complete. Andries (owner) is really kind, helpful and serves you delicious breakfast if you want. And as well dinner is really recommended! Windwardside offers some nice spots to have... More

I had a fantastic three night stay here while spending some time diving and hiking on the island. I'd describe the experience at El Momo as a forest cabin retreat, with tranquility and nature around. I stayed in the top room 'In The Sky' which has an outside kitchen, its own bathroom and a spacious comfortable room. Being the top... More

We stayed here after getting a recommendation from a new friend. We rented the cottage in the sky, the one at the top of the path. Nice and quiet, a true getaway! Beautiful room beautiful view. We had bats and hummingbirds fly through the room, along with a visiting iguana and tiny frogs in the shower. Truly jungle living. We... More

we stayed at El momo for 4 days and had a great time. Andries was a great help to us giving advice on things to do on the island even selling me some eggs from his stash. Beds were better than St Martins . My wife said it was like staying at our cottage in Canada. Saba is a wonderful... More

El Momo for me was a surprise. I was going to Saba with a friend for some serious diving and did not plan a bit of that trip. My first impression was quite shocking - fourty something steps up the hill with the luggage, once arrived in our first room shower and bathroom was outside, tiny room so the spoiled... More

We stayed for 3 nights in Cottage in the Sky, and it was worth every cent. The views from up there are to die for. Our room was spotless, our bed was very comfortable, and Andries (our host) was extremely helpful when we needed support like figuring out how to rent a car for a day or two. Bring your... More
