Incredible view of lower bay and Port Elisabeth. Shelly and Robert where perfect hosts. The layout for the breakfast table alone was the sweetest.

We wanted so badly to give the Sweet Retreat an Excellent rating! The owners are wonderful, service-minded people who bend over backwards to enable us to have an amazing time (which we did) however ... due to three little items, we decided to rate this only as Average. 1. The rooms, although lovely, and spacious, and with an amazing view... More

Dear Karen & Dave Thank you for your kind comments about your overall experience during your stay The Sweet Retreat. As you know we live on the property and so we experience the same 'outside' influences as our guests. We agree the mosquito population was particularly active during your stay to the extent that the Government is fogging the villages... More

First and foremost, Robert and Shelby are the best feature of their establishment, and with its perched position, sea views and breezes, that's saying something. The two owners are a real pleasure - Robert is generous with his substantial wealth of knowledge about the island, and is a fantastic host. Shelby is welcoming, and bouncing with energy. They are both... More

We had an excellent week long stay at Sweet Retreat March 2014! Robert and Shelby were great hosts and ensured we were happy and comfortable throughout our visit. Shelby's fresh baked muffins and breakfast sandwiches were delicious, creative and satisfying. Being served breakfast at an outdoor table for 2 overlooking beautiful Lower Bay was the perfect start to each day.... More

We just returned from a week of rest and relaxation at Sweet Retreat and were thoroughly pleased by the generous service Robert and Shelby provided. Warm, dry weather kept mosquitoes away. Shelby's breakfasts and dinner, served on a beautiful veranda, were tasty and innovative. Robert's thorough knowledge of life on Bequia brought helpful suggestions for dining and trips. The beach...

Our original review (first ever) was deleted because we did not understand the verification procedure which caused it to be delisted. We arrived at Sweet Retreat on 8th February and were very satisfied. All seemed just as the reviews we had read. Breakfast next day was fine and we enjoyed a nice meal in the evening. Next morning we were... More

The accomodation was excellent and the views from the balcony, overlooking the sandy sweep of Lower Bay, were superb. the beach is under a minutes walk from the hotel, although after spending time swimming and relaxing on the very quiet...
