For the 3rd time we have stayed at Captain Oliver's and it really is a great place in a very nice area of the Island. Close to Grand Case and beaches and half an hour drive to airport and simpson bay. If you prefer the French beaches and nice French restaurants, this is a good place to stay. The rooms... More

This is my fourth stay at Captain Oliver's and it has once again been a soothing balm to my mind body & soul. I love the tranquility of this place. I was fortunate to receive a room upgrade so this time my balcony looked directly out to sea, which gave me some lovely sunrises. The room is large & comfortable... More

5-nite stay in waterfront room. We dislike cookie-cutter places with that corporate feel, and this hotel met our needs perfectly. Spent hours watching birds over the water and in the flower-filled landscaping. Paid a few visits to the two (at least) French grocery stores within walking distance. Near one of the stores is the entrance to part of the nature... More

Where do I start? I was told this room was an upgrade! Bathroom: shower wand was broken, no soap dish or no place to place items. Windows in bathroom won't close. Toilet smells like sewer gas. Vanity area has mold or mildew on the ceiling. Kitchen: refrigerator long overdue for defrosting. There was a foul smell in the kitchen until... More

We came in a day early to our destination and chose to stay at Captain Oliver's. The experience was great, the room very comfortable and large enough for all. Lovely little beach area where the family swam to the dock off shore, jumped in and relaxed for an enjoyable experience. Pool was nice and provided enjoyment for my entire family.... More
