I stayed at Sugarapple Inn with my husband and two friends last April (2012). Firstly I must warn everyone - When travelling to Bequia by boat please use the Jaden Sun (fast ferry) or the Admiralty (1 hour). The Bequia Express is referred to as the Rocky Express by the locals and can be quite terrifying for anyone who does not have sea legs.
Sugarapple is a small beautifully-set inn with wonderful views and a nice relaxing environment. It is not far from Admiralty Bay (by car or taxi) and can be easily accessed as it is on a main road. There are 8 self-catering apartments, with each apartment being split into two parts - bedroom and kitchenette. The kitchenette is spacious enough to hold a dining table with chairs and a couch and the windows can be opened up to provide refreshing caribbean breeze. The bedroom is also very spacious and there is a glass door to separate both rooms. We stayed in two apartments and there was a connecting door which can be quite useful for larger groups.
The inn itself was not crowded and the pool was great for both adults and kids. After spending the days out we would normally relax by the pool on evenings with our drinks. Cilla - the manager at Sugarapple was most welcoming and made our stay even more enjoyable.
Bequia is not very big and it was easy to get to most beaches and other attractions from Sugarapple. We were there for the Heineken Regatta so we had much to do! - Mac's Pizzeria for lobster pizza is a must, Moonhole, fishing, Fort Hamilton (great view and funny story), Old Hegg Turtle Sanctuary, sailing from Bequia to Tobago Cays and of course spending time on the beach drinking rum and enjoying the regatta lol.
One tip - once you get to Bequia take the Jaden Sun ferry and visit Mayreau Island - once there walk to the other side of the island (about 20 mins) and you will be greeted by one of the most amazing beaches in the Grenandines. You can also see Petit Tabac, Tobago Cays, Morpion Island and Union from the highest point. And remember this is the Grenadines - a sailor's dream so prepare yourself for some huge swells.
