I stayed at the old fort twice, and on both occasions i was definitely happy with my choice. The room. The view. The peace. ohh the peace! I am a lover of anything rustic. So this place pleased me when I first walked in. Most of the compound is an actual fort. Renovated from the days of pirates, cannons and... More

A small boutique hotel tucked away in a converted plantation house in Mount Pleasant, the Old Fort has charm by the bucket load. Rather like Bequia itself, it is a hidden gem, with an outstanding view down the Grenadines which you can enjoy from the strategically placed pool. Each room is unique (and there are some odd shapes and sizes,... More

The place oozes comfort, especially when we was lounging around the pool looking over... More

The Old Fort was an absolute treat of an escape. It's located on a beautiful mountaintop which allows for stunning views of lush vegetation, the neighbouring Grenadine islands and an ever glistening sea from every point on the estate. Our suite was taken from the pages of a story book, truly fairytale-like. The estate's history added a majestic tone to... More

I have been coming to Bequia for a few years now and have always hear the tales of The Old Fort, but was never able to reserve a room. I was finally fortunate enough to get a room this holiday season and I am still pinning for my stunning suite. The property is absolutely perfect. Layered in vegetation, beautiful stone... More

Bequia had some of the most beautiful and pristine beaches I have ever seen so I would certainly recommend the island as a destination. Old Fort Bequia was a pleasant retreat on the top of the island with stunning mountaintop view but it is away from the beaches and the town. The rooms were clean and average, their fantasy sweet...

Hi Serene, Thank you for your review. To be honest, if you are someone who would have preferred to stay at a beachfront bungalow at Lowerbay for instance, I don't think you were the type of clientele matching the type of service and package The Old Fort has to offer. This also if you mind a 5 - 10 minutes... More

My wife and I had a fantastic time on Bequia earlier this year. Quirin and the staff at the Old Fort made our stay very pleasant. We had great food, relaxing days and walks to the nearly deserted beaches. The Fort itself is a restored sugar plantation and has a lot of charm and history. There are three beaches within... More

King King is the best host and staying at the Old Fort was really great. The view from up there is truly breath taking and the building is really cool: it feels like you're staying at someone's house not a hotel which was perfect as I was with my family. It's great for kids : they can run free everywhere.... More

Eleven days..... into a six week Island hopping, Caribbean adventure i was lucky enough to reach Beautiful Bequia, my plan of 'non-action' was to spend time alone in a tranquil and peaceful setting and digest my journey so far ~ Arriving up at the Old Fort was a wonderful surprise of calm and serenity, almost surreal ~ I found myself...

We enjoyed our stay at the Old Fort - it was certainly a holistic retreat and we managed to rest while we were there. The views are amazing and the hotel has a historic charm to it. The staff - Shara and Josiah - we're excellent. Very welcoming and attentive. The food was very nice. Really enjoyed the lobster and... More

Hi, Thank you for your comments! First I would like to say it was a pleasure meeting you both. I thought it quite coincidental, that we actually went to the same university in London almost 15 years ago and that we may have met during that time as we were also on the same exact course. You live in an... More
