Robert and Shelby are excellent hosts, Shelby could not do anymore to make you feel happy, relaxed and comfortable. The views are out of this world and the breakfast are just amazing! We will be back without fail! Wonderful people and I can't wait to see them again soon!

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

My wife and I had 4 glorious and relaxing days spent at Sweet Retreat at the end of Feb. 2014. 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...

They even prepared a very special meal to celebrate my birthday. The outstanding feature was the helpful. friendly and efficient support and advice provided... More

We had a wonderful 12 days at the Sweet Retreat! Robert and Shelby are fantastic hosts - offering advice on where to eat and what to do, plus making reservations when we needed them. The rooms are clean and comfortable and Shelby is a wonderful cook. We hardly left Lower Bay. The beach, the view, the nice local restaurants, our... More

We just returned from a 2 week vacation at Sweet Retreat. Robert and Shelby treated us like family. The food was amazing, fresh fish every day and everything on the menu locally grown. We stayed in the newest room at the top of the stairs, what a view! And to top it off a star fruit tree right off the... More

I can only echo what others have said, Robert and Shelby are wonderful hosts. The hotel has a spectacular setting, with stunning views from all rooms. It is a short but steep walk down to the beach. Walking into town takes about half an hour, but taxis are readily available. Food fantastic, dinner is not served on Thursdays but it... More

Any health benefits from walking up the steps to Sweet Retreat and then the bedrooms are probably undone by Shelby's generous and delicious food. The fresh fruit at breakfast was a delight as was Philicia's bread in the evening. Robert and Shelby cheerfully adapted to a few dietary quirks and also packed up the muffins we couldn't eat at breakfast... More
