Scout's Place is the place to go if you are on Saba for diving or walking. It is clean and our room was comfortable with amazing views. The staff are friendly and helpful. Continental breakfast is a bit monotonous if you are there for a fortnight like us, but you can pay for alternatives and you certainly do not go hungry. The coffee is very good too which is a big plus (you even have filter coffee in your room).
The supermarket is a minutes walk (buy fresh bread first thing) we then had a picnic lunch each day after diving watching the humming birds in the hotel flower beds.
The dinner in Scouts is good, shrimp pasta was the best ever.
The dive operation (see separate review for Saba Divers) is very well organised. Billy picked us up every day in his minibus, having been given clean towels and waved off by Susanne, he took us to the harbour where one of the dive staff was waiting to open the door with a cheerful good morning.
A review of Scouts Place has to include a mention of Friday nights sabaoke. This has to be attended at least once, it is expertly run and supported by Wolfgang and Barbara. All the participants threw themselves into their songs with huge enthusiasm which made the evening one of the best nights entertainment. (understand talent is not high on the agenda even Lulu rushed out onto "The Rock" on one occasion!)
All in all Scout's Place fills its niche as a hotel for divers with top marks, not luxury but comfortable, clean and friendly with a first class dive operation.
Billy took us back to the airport and we felt we were leaving home.
