I had not planned on staying here, but shared a golf cart taxi with the owner from the water taxi. She told me she had a room in my price range. It was little, and around the back, so pretty quiet. It was opposite the cat/dog rescue place so sometimes I heard cat fights in the night. staff were great... More

We stayed in a sea view rooms and thought they were better than the sea front rooms. As the sea front rooms are right on the main path/road. Whereas we were able to relax on our patio without people looking at you. The 2 bed room was a a decent size with a/c, fridge and hot water. We looked at... More

The staff of this hotel were fabulous and really committed to customer service. They did everything possible to make sure we were comfortable and enjoyed our stay on the island. In a very convenient location, close to the split and easy walking distance to downtown.

We enjoyed staying in one of the lower units (Sea view room) with private veranda and hammock with a great view. The staff were friendly and helpful and the place was clean. Downsides were the terrible water pressure and lack of hot water, as well as being pretty noisy especially early in the morning. The noise from the main street... More

We stayed two nights on a lower unit, it was clean and quiet. The staff was friendly and helpful. Ample hot water, strong wi-fi, fridge, beer/wine opener and coffe maker were a nice extra we didnt get at other places. There a a few stray cats that are friendly that hang out around the hotel. We enjoyed feeding them and... More

We found De Real Macaw by luck as everywhere on the island was booked up. The owner was so friendly and helped us move our luggage from our other apartment which meant more time on the veranda people watching. 3 of us shared room 1 which has a long veranda over-looking Front Street with access to 2 hammocks and a...

The hotel itself is fine. They keep it clean, the staff is friendly, there aren't any bugs or anything but I wish I had known about the bar across the road that blasts bass-filled reggae music until 2-3 am every night. I am a light sleeper and had to sleep with headphones on (super uncomfortable) to be able to fall... More

Stayed in the upper cabana for 2 nights and it was great. Location is perfect, it's right in town, and it surprisingly wasn't loud at night. The owners keep a close eye on their property and are very nice. I even noticed security cameras in the office. The room was pretty small but roomie enough for a couple people. Very... More

I stayed here (in the upper cabana) for 5 nights and it was great! The location is perfect, the room was spotless and a cleaner came everyday to tidy and replace towels. A really lovely spot opposite the seafront...lots of dogs which are very friendly- they even have their own pet park.
