We had a wonderful week in the hotel. The staff is extremely kind and helpulf and the location and views from the room are incredible. The hotel is comfortable, quiet, basic but needs a quick refurbishment and investment as time passed by and competitors are many. There are two bars and a restaurant in the marina close to the hotel... More

Captain Oliver's could stand a lick of paint, but we spent four incredibly happy days there thanks to the location, the view, the surroundings, the staff, the comfort of the rooms (beautiful marshmallow duvets on the beds!) Would love to go back this very minute.

I also do not often rate properties but our experience at Captain Oliver's motivates me to do so. My husband, another couple and I chartered a... More

We were looking for a quick getaway from the bad weather up North and Captain Oliver’s was part of a Getaway air and hotel package on the Jet Blue site. I don’t think that we got a particularly good deal price-wise, but it was an easy way to make a last minute decision. Next time I would try to check... More

This is in a nice location. Restaurants & a couple of markets are nearby. Lovely views of the marina/mountains/Caribbean from room balconies. This was probably once a 5 star hotel. Still nice, though. There are restaurants on site, not my favorite on the island. For the BEST crepes on the island walk up the hill to BZH (closed on Sunday).... More
