“Relaxing Retreat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

A perfect antidote to those who do not want a 5-star, all-inclusive resort. Siboney combines one of the best locations in Antigua (Dickenson Bay) with the comforts of a small, boutique hotel. Rooms are well furnished and the small kitchenette is useful for preparing snacks. The service is excellent and the staff make guests feel very welcome. It has an attached restaurant, Coconut Grove (under different management) which serves very good food right on the beach. Our verdict? Head there, but don't tell everyone about it!

Stayed here 25 years ago for our honeymoon. Came back 15 years ago for our anniversary. Thinking about returning next year and am happy to see that it is still a great place. Same owner back then so say hello to Tony for us. We loved the restaurant also, the people from the big resorts down further on Dickenson Bay would come for a bite when they got tired of the all-inclusive food at those places. 25 Years ago there was an excursion ship called the Servabo. It was destroyed by a hurricane but was a blast. I wish someone would bring that back. I can still hear the tree frogs singing at night. What a great place.

Great little hotel for someone who doesn`t want to stay in a resort. Friendly staff and an incredible pool area (set in a tropical garden with hammocks and sun loungers) which was very peaceful. The pool has a little fountain and, although not large, is ideal for floating around in. We booked last minute for the weekend, and were very happy with the room which comprised a comfortable (and thankfully air-conditioned) bedroom, decent bathroom, small kitchenette (which could be shut away behind doors, and would be useful during a longer stay, e.g. for breakfast), decent sized living room and a balcony overlooking the gardens. The staff were also very helpful when the battery from our rental car was stolen during the night...

The beach directly in front of the hotel is lovely (if on the small side, but the full expanse of the Dickenson Bay beach is right next door and is very nice), with very calm, clear water, and great sunsets. Food at the restaurant was good, the breakfast was decent, and the view out to sea is an ideal way to start the day. We were given vouchers for some free rum cocktails from the bar which were good.

Overall, a very relaxing place to stay and excellent value for money compared to other places we looked at.

Stayed at the Siboney hotel Aug 11-16 2012.
The staff is very knowledgable and very friendly. Tony Johnson the owner is a pleasure to talk to. He is at the hotel every day and is very helpful to the guest. The rooms are clean. You walk right onto the beach as soon as come out of the hotel. Coconut Grove and Lemon Peppers are great restaurants. Enjoyed my stay there very much and have recommended Siboney to other parents who's kids are attending school in Antigua.

I love this small boutique hotel right on the beach! Great staff, friendly and helpful. The beach is beautiful and was never crowded. A perfect place for a laid-back, casual Caribbean vacation. Talk to Tony Johnson and hear him talk about his life. Absolutely amazing!

If you want a hotel with comfortable rooms only a few steps to a fantastic beach with idealic, panoramic views, this is the place. The setting on the beach is perfect for subdued beach time, and tradewinds are strong enough to keep you cool ( and to give you an invigorating sail)... calm waters. There is a seperately run beach restaurant/ bar adjoining the property where area residents and tourists converge in the pm.

Rooms are not spacious, but well organized and well appointed. Staff is extremely helpful, and Mr. Tony , the long term proprietor, helped me organize my stay. (Take the helicopter tour to see the exclusion zone at Montserrat...also recommend a sail w On Deck as well as the Catamaran trip to snorkle Cades Reef))

Great location with many restaurants within a few minutes driving. Other sights easily reached from Siboney.

Room Tip: select bottom floor cose to beach

After being dissapointed at Coconut Beach Club we had this wonderful hotel recommened to us by several locals. What a great find! Rooms were very clean and comfortable, staff was so helpful and friendly! Beautiful beach and nice pool that we had to ourselves because so many of the guests used the beach. We truly hated to leave, it was like leaving close friends. We are counting the days until we can return. Just down the beach from Sandals so you can book jet skis and excursions on their beach, The restaurant attached Coconut Grove was just as great. Wonderful breakfast and nice bar We met wonderful local people and many visitors who come back every year.'if you are looking for a great place to relax and meet new friends this is your place!

Room Tip: We were in #2 it was great
