My two friends and I went there last weekend and had the best time. It's beautifully tucked away, and we felt like we had our own private beach. The owners are exceptionally helpful and sweet too. One of my friends got sick the day we left so she couldn't come and Shelby/Robert gave us a break on the rate! Who... More

I came across The Sweet Retreat while browsing for an inexpensive, low-key hotel for a quick, 1 night stay on Bequia, and I could not be more pleased with the outcome. The Sweet Retreat is a quaint, 10-person bed and breakfast, tucked away on the far end of Lower Bay. We had the beach entirely to ourselves and were amazed... More

My sister and I stayed at Bequia Sweet Retreat Hotel and it was, at 46 years old, THE BEST vacation I've ever been on! Robert and Shelby are the best! We felt pampered without feeling smothered. And the beach!! THE best swimming! So clear! If you're lucky, you get to shower outside! All the rooms are great! Highly recommended for... More

This is a sweet retreat. Our room was very cozy with a fantastic view of Lower Bay beach. Robert & Shelby are wonderful hosts, very helpful too. Great breakfasts on the open air terrace. We loved it!!

This is a lovely B&B sitting on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Lower Bay is a wonderful beach for swimming, snorkeling and relaxing. The accommodations are simple but comfortable and the patio overlooking the ocean is fantastic. Robert and Shelby are wonderful hosts and make you feel truly at home. Cons are limited privacy, and it... More

Another wonderful stay at The Sweet Retreat. Stayed in the cabana this year, it was amazing. Plenty of room, outdoor terrace, with amazing views over Lower Bay. With the added pleasure of an outdoor shower😃😢. Robert and Shelby are the perfect hosts . Always there for any advice needed and can tell some wonderful tales about the Bequia and its... More

This was our second visit to the Sweet Retreat and it didn't disappoint. Robert and Shelby welcomed us like old friends. This time we had the brown room which has the most amazing views and a good size balcony for sun-downers. We loved it. Shelby's cooking was fabulous and the breakfasts even better than before. Her muffins are extraordinarily good... More

So many good things to say about Sweet Retreat. We stayed in the cabin above the main hotel (but then there are only 5 rooms). On the wide veranda we were above a star-fruit tree and a lemon tree. On our chairs and sun-loungers we had a fine and relaxing view over the bay, the yachts and the ferries. The... More

One year we went for Christmas and January and got there again in late April and early May. I just booked it again for two weeks in February/March 2015 and invited my Friend's from Los Angeles to...

Large rooms with large comfortable beds. Good size bathroom both - room and bedroom tastefully decorated. Good size balcony with chair table, and sun bed. Incredible view of lower bay and Port Elisabeth. Shelly and Robert where perfect hosts. The layout for the breakfast table alone was the sweetest. An extraordinary breakfast with plenty of fresh coffee, fruits, coconut water,... More
