Our dive group visited St. Eustatius the 2nd week of February, and elected to stay at the Old Gin House. The rooms were clean and the maintenance staff were very pleasant. The front desk was a hit or miss on friendliness. The lobby area was comfortable and cozy. The restaurant, however, is not equipped to handle a group of 22.... More

I always stay here when on island. It is a historic place that is done up very nice. Small and personal service. The A/C runs cold and being from Texas this is what you love! The restaurant has great breakfast and lunch daily and the bar by the water is fun to hang out at. Some nights they have music... More

Part our business trip to Statia, I booked two rooms for two nights in this hotel using "booking.com". I received four emails to confirm; two for the correct dates and two for wrong dates. I emailed directly to the hotel informing them about this. Never received an email back or thank you. Upon arrival, they did not have our reservation... More

Nothing spectacular, best part of stay was the little oceanfront bar\restaurant. I question why people never smile, friendly customer service is not a common thing here or maybe not even on many of the islands. Ask for a blanket otherwise the sheet on your bed (thats all you get) will not provide constant comfort all night.

...and while we look forward to revisiting some places, once was enough. The service was fine, the food delicious, the historic nature of the inn not as much as we had hoped for. It was fun to get our bottle of wine with what seemed to be a fire cracker attached to it.We enjoyed visiting the island and accomplished our... More

My husband, daughter and I returned to Statia, the OGHouse and Golden Rock Dive Center again this year. We normally don't return to an island twice but because my husband was injured last year and the diving was sooo good, we decided to return. We really like the hotel. Not fancy, but quiet, quaint, and very clean. The dinners at... More

A poor hotel. Staff seem dis-interested and just 'going through the motions'. The rooms are of an old colonial style which is nice, very clean, but no with no facilities, no water, no coffee. TV signal is intermittent. The shower had no pressure whatsoever. I complained about this on check-out, but was met with a disinterested look and just an... More

The place has a lot of old world charm. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Our room was on the second of two floors which was a bit of a hike up the stairs. It had two beds; one king and one twin. While a small fridge was provided, it lacked a microwave and a room safe. Meals were provided... More

Nothing negative can be said about Old Gin! The staff was perfect, everyone would stop and say hello, the grounds were gorgeous, the food was delicious, and the experience was wonderful. We stayed for a week and dove at Scubaqua and when we return there is no doubt we will return to Old Gin! Thank you for the wonderful week!
