Antigua - 3 Martini Bar & Restaurant & Apartments
We have just spent two months cruising the Windwards and making our way North into the Leewards where we would leave our boat in Jolly Harbour, then returning to the UK. As the boat is 'lifted' and left in the boatyard, I was looking for somewhere to stay on the last night before our flight home.
Making enquires in Jolly Harbour for somewhere to stay for one night we were recommended the above.
Whilst I felt that Diane and Godfrey who own 3 Martinis were most pleasant, the 'hotel and restaurant' were a complete letdown. I have no problem with simple or basic, what I do have a problem with is dirty, broken, and generally run down. On first impression, the place is very tired, falling apart, and somewhere you really would choose to leave if you could. Our room was on the lower floor, the upper floor being 'more expensive', it consisted of a kitchen, sofa bed and en suite.
The kitchen was non existant, the large steel sink was taped off with a large dead grasshopper left, the taps did not work, the bed was an ample size but that is where it ended. The 'sofa' and bed had fleas, the bathroom was quite disgusting, all around the toilet the tiles had been removed, and the area was wet and rotten, only one of the shower controls worked, but came out of the wall and could hardly be turned, the 'curtain' was covered in mold and falling apart.
The louvred glass panes were broken and did not move, a fan was provided but the plug had to be wiggled to stay in, likewise the only lamp by one side of the bed was not something you would want to meddle with exposed rotten wiring. We had a pretty large cockroach which we eventually managed to kill, my husband went to the owners, a lad came to our room with a spray can, saying we should be lucky that it was just this one!
I have looked at other reports of this 'hotel' and simply cannot believe what I am reading, it is almost as though they are talking about another place! I would never ever recommend anybody to stay here, we were going to stay in a hotel the day we returned to our boat, but will now return to the boatyard, at least we have a 5* boat to look forward to.
As I mentioned the owners are most pleasant and helpful, the view of the ocean is lovely but the place is a joke,
