If you want to party like there is no tomorrow... go to the Dutch side lol... for everybody else...
This boutique hotel is the front of a sailing marina filled with multi-million dollar multi hulls and is an older hotel, you can see that once this might have been a glorious place, but that said... the hotel is clean, rooms are large, good bathroom, bed etc. On top of that... I'm a big boater myself and it is very cool to meet people that have actually sailed across the world.
The staff is a mix of locals French and some American which are among the nicest and helpful people you ever meet. In the Marina are 2 bars next to each other, 1 French and the other American. These are fun places... The staff is like a family and they will give you just that feeling you won't get in the un-personal bigger hotels. The drinks are cheap and the food is good. There are also a bunch of restaurants around the place that have some very decent food. I personally had a lot of fun in the bars at night! The staff and sailors make you feel part of the family. There are only 3 beaches around on walking distance and a small hill you can hike, but on a small island like this... What is far!
If you want a cool experience of what life on a Caribbean island can be... I would recommend this place. I'll be back here for sure!
