“Peace and Tranquillity”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2011

When our flight arrived, Franklin was there waiting for us. Then it was onto our new adventure. When we arrived at Sugar Apple, Cilla was there to give us a warm welcome, just like old friends. She provided a tour of the property and a cell phone, which was a nice touch.
The property was well manicured and the pool was spotless. The rooms were very nice and clean. The kitchen was equipped with all our needs. It was wonderful to enjoy coffee in the morning and gaze out at Friendship Bay and the adjacent islands. Friendship Bay had a beautiful beach. Unlike most locations that are crowded, we had the place to ourselves. We will be back for two weeks next year.

Room Tip: We found it best to convert to EC currency

I am a repeat visitor to Bequia, and have stayed at a few different places during the years I have been going there. The Sugarapple is by far the most lovely place to stay on the island. It is nestled on the side on a hill, overlooking the ocean with the other islands of the Grenadines in the distance.
I stayed there for 2 weeks this March, and it was wonderful. Cilla, the manager, greeted me with open arms, remembering me from last year's stay. She and the other staff go out of their way to assure that each guest is well taken care of. Another reviewer was upset that the staff isn't on the premises 24/7. No, they are not there physically. But Cilla provides guests with their own local cell phones, with the personal phone numbers of staff programed in, so they can be reached at any time. And, the beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms are sparkling clean. It seems as though the former reviewer wanted a large busy high tech hotel. The Sugarapple is not that, and that's why people love it so much.

Really enjoyed our stay in Bequia. A good night sleep would have helped and unfortunately the mattresses at this place are wire coil and the worst! Other than that, our stay was enjoyable and we really loved the outdoor kitchen with AC in the bedroom - great idea. Bathroom was smelly and they never give three towels for three people. A phone in the room would have really helped. Beware of island time if you get a lift from the locals, they say they are coming, but we waited for almost an hour one day for Franklin to pick us up. The front staff/office were helpful when there, but never there when you need help - like evenings and weekends. Pool is lovely, unfortunately a large party checked in the last few days and took over the place - but before they came, it was very quiet and lovely.

just had to add... as a reminder...... house keeping is provided every day except Sundays, and towels are changed every 2 days. Your room was cleaned 9 of your 11 day stay. It is odd that a couple sharing a room with a 19 year old, would not request more towels from the house keeper, or even from the manager whose office is 20 feet away from the entrance to your unit, and with whom you had enough contact to request lobster, fish, more than once, bread, and taxi service!

there isn`t anything negative i could say about this place !! the rooms are more dan what u can ask for and the price is excellent. cilla, along with her husband mr franklin and other staff go beyond the call to ensure that your stay is as comfortable and memorable as possible. it is simply breathtaking and worth every single penny. it was our first time to bequia and st vincent, the people were so polite and friendly. definately a best seller !!

the Sugarapple Inn is a great place to stay. It is not B&B, as we difine it. It is a stuido apartment. The bedroom is air conditioned and mosquito nets are provided. The kitchen/lving space is relatively small but was fine for us for the month we were there. Housekeeping services are provided daily by lovely local ladies. Cilla, the manager, and all of her staff are very friendly and helpful. It is a short walk to the beach, about four minutes. the Inn is also right on the bus route to Port Elizabeth which is great for day trips into town to get groceries. Costs about 50 cents per person CAD. AT night, taxis are much more reliable. The grounds and pool are well maintained and seldom busy. Any problems we encountered with the studio were attended to promptly, inlcluding running out of propace for the stove on a Sunday. Cilla was there about 30 minutes later in her Sunday best with a new propane tank for us. WIFI was good and free and the place has both 220 and 110 outlets. My husband and I would highly recommend this lovely, small apartment hotel.

We stayed here for our honeymoon in the spring of 05'. Upon arrival to the Sugar Apple we were treated like long friends. The rooms were clean and roomy with breathtaking views of Friendship Bay where we would spend a portion of every day. Town was a quick ride or a walk away but not to close as to take away from the quite and relaxing nature of the Inn. We dream of going back and miss the friends who we met in this beautiful paradise.
