My husband and I were very happy when we left this hotel. It is a good place to enjoy the breakfast in the morning with the nice sea view and eventhough I read negative refference about this hotel but we did not have such bad experiences. Our check in were simple and expected, I said that because when we were... More

I'm pretty sure this hotel isn't nicer because they really don't need to bother much. St. Eustatius is a small area with a few sleeping options so if you don't want to spend too much money and have a good night's sleep then this is your thing. It is not pretty but it has free wifi, a small swimming pool,... More

After reading a couple of recent negative reviews for Golden Era, I almost changed my reservation for my week in Statia. I am very glad I didn't. Golden Era certainly isn't a Renaissance or Marriot, nor is it as nice as the lovely, higher priced hotel next to it, but it is clean, has a great location and views, and... More

This is our 5th year cruising the Caribbean and have to say we have never come across such rude, lousy service, as a matter of fact we actully cancelled our drink and dinner order to go elsewhere because if the attitude of the waitress. It's a shame because it's a great location and a decent menu

Our Group had four rooms here for one night in early December 2014. So I was able to check out two rooms plus the one in which I stayed. Mine was the worst of the lot. Stayed on the second floor. There was no room number on the door of our room which was the first sign that things were... More

Stayed at this hotel for about a week on a business trip and the experience was okay though with a little improvement in the management the hotel can do a lot better. The best part of the hotel is the restaurant which offers reasonably good food and the friendly staff. The hotel is well sited and offers marvelous views of... More

After reading the history of mixed reviews my wife and I thought we would still try the Golden Era and we were satisfied. We requested the cheapest room but were given a (free up grade) waterfront room with a kitchenette and everything in the room worked fine (including the air conditioner & ceiling fan). The bathroom was clean and lacked... More

This is such a mixed bag of good and bad, this is something between a one star and a four star hotel. Take the room, Not a bad room, bed was nice..this room was quiet (103), but the air conditioning did not work...the whole 9 days I was there. They even moved me to a room with a brand new... More

I'm rating this a 4 for two reasons: It IS an economy hotel, perhaps a 3 star equivalent, and as such I am not rating it on plushness, but on comfort and staff. It nearly fully met my expectations. The hotel is older, but quite comfortable. The staff is super friendly, and the rooms are cleaned each day. I came... More
