“Very friendly, family run and value for Money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

I stayed here because it was a fraction of the price to my friends Wedding venue. The room was big and clean, the bed was huge & comfy, scenery was stunning! The owners Diane and Godfrey were Amazing!

Diane and Godfrey were the best hosts! We had so much fun with them and their friends that we kept them up all night! Diane's food is delicious if you let her know ahead of time that you would like a meal, and her rum punches were the best i had on vacation. (Don't ever ask for a double-you Do NOT need it!) We had the coconut curry prawns and they were fab, and of course breakfast on the ocean was great. You will enjoy the 4-legged concierge, Jethro, who will greet you at the taxi and lead you to your hosts with a hem of some sort gently in his mouth...The beach was amazing, right across the road, giving you a great view from the your room balcony and also the open air bar, which plays the best old school reggae at the perfect levels. The beach was never crowded on this end, and you could walk the beach and barhop for quite a ways. These waters are exactly what you hope for when you think carribean. Unless you are exploring, you wont need a car. The bus will grab you right at the driveway and is very fast and cheap. Next time we come to Antigua, we are heading straight to 3 Martini for our trip HQ's. Thanks for everything guys! Hope to see you soon....

We were there for a birthday party. In regards to the islands standards, everything was good. They tried to realise all customised wishes. Though other beach bars close earlier, they stayed open late night for us

I’m afraid we would not recommend this hotel. On the positive side, the room was big and had an excellent view, and one of the best beaches on the island was right outside, across the road. Also there is a very friendly assistant working at the hotel whom we liked very much.

Our experience at 3 Martinis was overall negative, due mainly to the poor customer service from the hotel owner. This was despite the fact that we were the only guests at the time and one would have expected an even better service. Our fridge and the shower were not working when we arrived. We were not informed of this on arrival and when we asked about the shower we were told they were working on it (why had they not warned us?!). When we asked for the fridge to be fixed, it felt like we were inconveniencing the hotel owner from his otherwise quiet day. It then took until the following day for them to replace the fridge with one from the other vacant rooms.

Another sore point was that our room was not cleaned every day. For a hotel charging around US $100 per night, one would expect the room cleaned, ideally with towels and bedding changed, every day. No, at 3 Martinis, every other day is the custom, and even then on one of those days they forgot to do it altogether. When we asked for clean towels we were told they didn’t have any available, despite the fact they had five other vacant rooms at the time! Over nine days and nights our room was cleaned and linen changed only three times.

The last straw came, when with one hour to go until our taxi arrived to take us to the airport on a Friday afternoon, the hotel owner could not find our passports, which we had handed in to him for his safe keeping on our first day. He had not put them in his safe as we had requested, as he could not remember the code! He had misplaced them, much to our concern! Thankfully, he found them just in time, but did not really acknowledge the gravity of the situation, much to our frustration. His losing them could have cost us thousands of pounds not to mention the inconvenience.

Needless to say, we will not be going there again.

Its a bit out of the way, but has a beautiful quiet beach right on its doorstep. I think we were well off season so was very quiet, and only a few locals at the bar. We had a nice balcony were we drank and watched the sunset. Only stayed one night, but enjoyed it. I hate to say it, but there were a few cockroaches about the room, so I gave the cleanliness a two, but I suppose this is the Caribbean. I enjoyed my stay.

I stayed at 3 Martini for two nights. My room (room 3 on the ground floor) was enormous. There's no AC, but the temperature was comfortable at night. And the best part about the room was falling asleep listening to the waves come into the shore, as the hotel is literally just across the road from the beach. If you're the fluffy pillow, mini bar, in-room TV type, this is not the place for you. But if you want somewhere with a local vibe and lots of character instead of a cookie cutter resort, 3 Martini is a good choice.

The food was excellent. I ate at the hotel both nights. I'm pescatarian (vegetarian + fish) so Diane prepared food that worked for me, and it was very tasty! Diane and Godfrey are great hosts. They have both lived in various places and done lots of things, and are interesting to talk to - which I did both evenings I was there. Diane was also very helpful in giving me a decent map (unlike the useless one I got from Avis) and advice on my proposed itinerary for the day I toured around much of the island.

Crab Hill is a good location - esp if you want to avoid staying in St. John's (who wouldn't?) and the more touristy parts in English Harbour. I had a rental car, and was within easy driving distance of all the main tourist sights.

So I'm glad I picked 3 Martini and would stay here again if I go back to Antigua.

Room Tip: Room 3 is on the ground floor and very large with twin beds.
