My first visit to Saba. My choice was made with much care and deliberation and it was Juliana's. An excellent choice. I had almost two whole weeks there and was well looked after by Wym and Johanna. I made a point of visiting and eating in the two other top hotels on the island and much preferred Julianas for its simplicity and friendliness. As a female travelling alone at 60 plus it can be difficult, but I was made very welcome and felt relaxed and comfortable. Views from room 7 are wonderful. The left end room in the picture! Hotel location excellent you can walk relatively easily to the main street (unlike the other the expensive hotel with the views in Windwardside!) where there are shops, bars and two small supermarkets. Juliana's is not pretentious - thank goodness, unlike other hotels which I visited and which charge unrealistic prices for unexciting meals and are located in places difficult to access! Bed and breakfast is the main deal - the breakfasts are to die for but you can order a packed lunch or choose a prepared meal from a menue. On Friday afternoon there is a party atmosphere as the island relaxes into the weekend and Tropics bar comes alive - most of the time all is peaceful, especially when the divers and walkers are off doing their thing. The staff are charming and very helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are clean and its great to have dive/beach towels as part of the deal. My trip to Julianas and the island I now look back on as one of those "trips of a lifetime". Go to Julianas - you will not regret it!
