“Very nice hotel with friendly and attentive staff”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

I stayed here for 10 days with my wife, and we had a very pleasant time indeed with a ground floor room and a great view over the water to Young Island at a not inconsiderable premium on the room rate.

The room itself was spacious and had a decent bathroom with full sized bath/shower, fridge, decent sized TV and a really excellent bed which looked like two singles bolted together but was extremely comfortable. The aircon was effective enough and the whole stay very pleasant, since we'd found Barbados far too hot. The room was slightly dated (which I don't mind), but the mains wiring to sockets was run through stick-on trunking which had come loose from the wall and which could be a hazard if kids were around. This should be run inside the plaster.

The staff are generally great and helpful although one or two of the receptionists think they are too nice. Breakfast was excellent and very fresh every day at the French Verandah restaurant (reviewed separately). Nice cocktails, and the bar is quite social in the evening at the weekends with residents and some 'upscale' locals. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely return but attention to detail would make this a better premium stay

Room Tip: The sea view is great but comes at a premium. Consider if you really are going to spend a lot of tim...

Very nice hotel,loved the privacy of our room 404 .Minor things were wrong in the room in which I think the hotel can improve on .There was no electrical sockets in the bathroom to plug your hair dryer in, unless you bring an extension cord . There is no mosquito mesh at the doors .Although they were few they still had free range. The door to enter the room ,needs a new lock. We got locked out of the room one night. Through all of this I must say that the staff was very helpful ,they wanted to give us an upgrade but the view we had from that room made up for everything so we turned it down.Housekeeping staff was excellent. We are definitely going back and will stay at this hotel again.Didn't care for the restaurant,very expensive under different management not part of mariners.Best place to eat so far is at Driftwood restaurant not far from the hotel.

Room Tip: Room 404 has more privacy

This was a nice place to stay. The bed was comfortable there was a restaurant onsite which is nice in St Vincent because it's hard to get around and there is really no place to walk to. This directly across from Young Island and you could go over if you would like. They have a pool and beach where you can get into the sea to swim. You can swim to Young Island if you want to. The restaurant has a Sunday Brunch with all you can eat and drink and swim. Staff is friendly. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: I had a first floor room and was blocked from the drive by hedges. It was nice. I didn't have an...

large rooms in a beautiful setting, beverages replenished daily in rooms, air conditioning, the hotel is in a lovely setting, with its own pool and small beach.
Beautiful restaurant with a wide menu choice for breakfast lunch and dinner, Sunday dinner selection is vast, beautifully presented and at very reasonable prices, the staff are very friendly and attentive to ones needs. The Grounds are beautifully kept with many vartieties of flowers etc. Would go back to stay again.

Very good hotel with very good restaurant, not inexpensive but it's good.
Breakfast is good you get all kinds of tropical fruits if you ask for fruit plate.

Rooms are clean, beds are big and confortable, not far from the marina if you're sailing.
Just avoid going by walk to the marina people drive like crazy in the road, you might want to get a taxi for that.

People in the hotel was nice, i did not try the pool but it looked nice too.

Spent a week at Mariner's Hotel in St. Vincent; less than 50 feet to the ocean and a fresh water pool on site. Restaurant is great (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and the rum punch is the best we found on the island. They offer wonderful yogurt made by the hotel chefs for breakfast. It's a short walk to Dive St. Vincent; diving was our principal activity for the week. Rooms are clean, beds are comfortable and the air conditioning stays ahead of the outside heat and humidity. Staff are friendly and courteous.

Room Tip: Rooms 201-203 are first floor and pool-side

We stayed here pre-sailing excursion around the Grenadines and were very impressed with the friendly courteous staff, the gorgeous views, the nice restaurant and the general feeling of the hotel. Our flight was delayed coming in and we missed our first night - they were very accommodating in our situation and made a long travel end on a very nice note. It's not a large hotel but has cute grounds, nice rooms, wonderful staff and good food. There is a small beach that we swam and snorkeled from, a small pool which our daughter loved, comfortable rooms with good shower and nice view of the beach and Young Island across the way. Food is very good (though dinner is pretty expensive). They are very accomodating if you take a sail excursion for the boat to drop you off and pick you up there. Can't say enough good about the friendly staff. Would definitely stay there again if back in St Vincent again.

Room Tip: Veranda with beach view is wonderful.
