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

Stayed here for a dive trip and this is a good option for Statia. The rooms were clean and comfortable and it has a very nice pool and dining/bar area. Rooms are a little smaller than the rooms at the Gin House but I found the rooms/properties comparable in regards to amenities and cleanliness. Would not hesitate to stay here... More

This hotel does not have a very positive buzz. A lot of people warned me not to expect too much. But honestly said I was pleasantly surprised: good internet, friendly service and a very good bed. The room was not overly big, but not too small. I find it a reasonable option compared to other hotels on St. Eustatius which... More

The biggest reason to go to Statia is scuba diving. This hotel is just a hundred yards from one dive shop an within easy walking distance of the rest. That being said this is not the RITZ. Room was spotless and bathroom was clean and smelled clean. It's a basic room with a big screen tv small fridge and coffee... More

In February we stayed again at the Golden Era Hotel, a small hotel with swimming pool, restaurant and bar with a beautiful view on the Caribbean Sea. We had a spacious room on the 1st floor with a nice view, hot water and a small fridge. The salt seawater makes it a very challenging job for the hotel management to... More

I have stayed here twice in past two years. 2012 the room was ok but the service was pretty good. 2013 the room was cleaner. I also had room 108 and the pics presented are accurate but it was still a nice room. Breakfast was cold, the service terrible by the young man. When the older woman was present the... More
