The Sugarapple on Bequai at Friendship Beach is a fantastic place to stay. My wife and I arrived at the hotel via taxi from Port Elizabeth and we knew right from the start that this would be a great place. We were greeted by Cilla, the manger, and she made us feel right at home. The hotel has 8 suites, a pool, wonderful gardens and grounds, a large deck with swing chairs, b-b-que, table and chairs. Our suite was #6 and we had a clear view of Friendship Bay and the off-shore islands. The suite itself has a larger bedroom with ample space, a large bathroom and shower and a dining/kitchen area with table, chairs and love seat. The rising sun would flood our breakfast nook and we never got use to the vistas. The staff at Sugarapple was always pleasant and always had a nice greeting greeting for you. The other important feature of Sugarapple was the other guests who were pleasant and often shared information on their excursions and experiences.
We had an easy 5 minute walk to one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean. There are two bars/resturants on the beach so there was always something to enjoy. Port Elizabeth is about a 30 minute walk or take the local mini-buses (1 EC/person), or a taxi for 20 EC. We usually walked to Port Elizabeth each morning to take in the harbour activities and to pick up fresh produce at the local markets. After two weeks we started to feel like locals and would be able to recognize the vendors and mini-bus drivers.
We will return to Bequai and most importantly to Sugarapple.
