“Good location, nice staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

We stayed at this place in April 2012. It has a good location, you can easily visit all the attractions - the rainforest, the volcanic mud bath, botanic garden etc. If you arent lazy, you can take a walk to the beautiful beach - Anse Chastanet. There you can even take a guided tour of the breathtaking Jade Mountain hotel (it is worth!)
The rooms were clean, the staff cleaned them every day. They even decorate the room + bathroom with flowers, it is nice.
However, the walls are thin so you might hear people from the next room talking, walking...in case you are sensitive to these things. We were not, but we noticed it.
The hotel bar is cute, they serve good drinks and the bartenders are very nice, too.
What we did not really like was the surroundings of the hotel, but they are rebuilding the area, they are building some park there, if I understood it right. The beach in front of the hotel wasnt very nice either, but well, if you wish to take a swim in the morning, you can do so.
We also had 2 or 3 meals at the hotel restaurant and they were delicious - I especially liked the seafood curry.

We stayed in this hotel last year for 3 days. We booked next door hotel Still Beach House, but it was closed. We tried everything…called owner, knocked the door, called to Expedia. But only owner from Hummidbird hotel help us. She invited to stay at their property, put luggage, and was trying to reach the owner. Finally we decided to stay there. And we loved everything there…view, staff, food. I want to return back!

I really loved my stay at The Hummingbird. The location was lovely, the restaurant was delicious and people still can't believe the pictures of The Pitons that I took while sitting in a chair on our balcony. I know there are more luxurious resorts on this beautiful island, but I have to say, there is a special feeling at this hotel I didn't find while visiting other resorts. If this is the price range you are going for, you cannot find a better hotel. I can't wait to go back and would not stay any where else for twice the price.

Even though my wife and I did not stay at Hummingbird, I can say that we would have liked to. Immediately upon arrival for dinner (without reservations), the owner (yes, the owner) greeted us and ushered us to the server. Our table was situated perfectly looking out into the bay and the Pitons, with a pleasant view of the hotel property as well. Our drinks were well-made and strong and the food was top-notch. We even came back a second time during this same visit.

Despite what some reviews had said, we thought the menu was affordable. It was well worth the money we spent for the food, drinks, ambiance, and service.

Staying at the Hummingbird is a truly wonderful experience! Small, only 10 rooms, on the beach with a breathtaking view, with a great staff, comfortable, airy rooms, fabulous food, VERY affordable price, and more hummingbirds than you can count!

This was our THIRD time at the Hummingbird (a week each time) and we can't wait to return.

The rooms are pretty, well kept, clean and comfortable- no air conditioning, but we didn't need it- the cool breeze, supplemented by floor and ceiling fans kept us plenty cool. Sitting by the pool or in the dining room, enjoying the beautiful view, the cool breeze, the great food, and the hummingbirds, has been one of the most relaxing experiences we've ever had. The nearby town of Soufriere is a small working town, not a resort town- there is very little tourist shopping- but we enjoying strolling through the town in the evening, talking to the people, who are all very friendly, and dining in the local restaurants- you must go to Archie's for their creole cooking!

The staff at the Hummingbird are all very friendly, attentive, and helpful- they really want to make our stay pleasant. David, the chef, can REALLY cook! The owner, Joan Alexander sees to it that you are made to feel at home. They all make us feel so special!

We scuba dived at nearby the Anse Chastenet Resort, but you can snorkel or scuba from the shore at the Hummingbird (they can get you set up with a dive shop nearby). Near Soufriere, a 30 minute walk from the Hummingbird, is a beautiful botanical garden with Diamond Falls, and a dormant volcano with bubbling mudpits is just a short drive away.

So much to talk about- you must go there and experience it yourself!

Room Tip: The lowest cost rooms are very nice- the'Piton view' rooms have windows which allow the bree...

We spent one night at the Hummingbird, based on the recommendations of our charter captain who'd eaten there, but not stayed over. First, the staff is exceedingly friendly and eager to please. The food in the restaurant is very good, better than I expected. I wouldn't say there was anything "bad" per se, but for the money we were paying (off season at that), I had higher expectations for the accommodations. The room was a little tired and the bathroom was quite dated, but that said, the bed was firm and comfy, the AC worked (until the power went off in the morning for some unknown reason), and the room was sprinkled with Bougainvillea flowers upon our arrival. The view of the Pitons from the restaurant, pool, and room was lovely.

We didn't stay at hummingbird. We stayed in soufriere at la haut. But spent a day walking around soufriere town and walked over to the hummingbird for drinks. Very nice bar and restaurant. Nice menu although w didn't eat. Good prices. There was a cook from the US there that worked at jade mountain. He higwhen're commended the food and said he eats there a lot when not at work. the grounds there are well kept and the cottages look cute from the outside.
