Been island hoping and heard that Bequia is one of the newest chick islands in the Caribbean to visit. A friend of mine from London said that I should definitely stay at The Old Fort, Historic Plantation in Mt. Pleasant. At first I was a bit reluctant due to the fact that it is located a small distance from the...

Rooms were simple and clean. Stayed for 5 nights and the room was only cleaned once. Ran out of toilet paper and could never find staff to ask for refills. Lovely pool and bar area but again was not maintained nor serviced. Restaurant was only functioning for breakfast. The grounds of the hotel needed work and maintenance (grass needed to...

My husband and I enjoyed an amazing Christmas dinner buffet at The Old Fort on December 17, 2015. The evening was spectacular. Food was great, the staff and management were warm and inviting. The evening finale, a band by the infinity pool overlooking Mustique, made the evening magic. We look forward to our return visit.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Old Fort, Boutique Hotel & Estate is the only fully restored historic plantation in St. Vincent and the Grenadines dating back to the eighteenth-century when the French first started settling the West Indies. Set high atop Mt. Pleasant with an estate that stretches over 28 acres all the way down to the Caribbean Sea, it features acres of orchards and views to beat anything you would find out on the open ocean. Its lush grounds are covered in traveller's palms, breadfruit, tamarind, banana and mango trees, surrounding one of the most beautiful pools in the world, happily slip sliding its watery way over the edge. Recommended over years by numerous international media, it has been transformed into the kind of hotel you never want to leave! ... more   less
