“Great place to stay on wonderful Bequia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2012

We stayed for 10 days from 11.01.2012 having booked very last minute the weekend before. Cilla sorted everything for us and is a delightful person and host. The combination of Cilla looking after or residential needs and her husband Franklin looking after transport was perfect for us. The Sugarapple Inn like the island of Bequia has everything you require for a relaxing, fun and comfortable holiday. Great beds, excellent and quiet aircon (if you prefer cool to the windows and doors open approach), very well equipt, airy authentic Bequian design and setting with a wonderful outlook over Friendship bay which is a two minute walk from the garden gate. For people that like to experience the real thing when they are away the Sugarapple and Bequia provide it in spades.

Room Tip: All suites are similar and have a lovely outlook, but the higher ones also offer views of the bay.

Vincie, Owner at Sugarapple Inn, responded to this review, January 24, 2012
Thank you Shaniceidowu for your review, and we are happy to hear that you would visit us again. Your review comes 5 months after your visit, and I wish you had brought your issue with the AC and the bug to our attention right away so that we could have dealt with it immediately. What you encountered was a water bug which looks like a roach. These critters will occasionally fly through the windows at nights and if not discovered will eventually make their way to the bathroom where it is cool, and where there is water. If you do visit us again, we trust that all will be well. Cilla or any of her staff will be very happy to help you with anything you may need.

We stayed here for a week in May. The apartment was great and the pool was lovely. The owners are very helpful and friendly. The Friendship Bay (big hotel next door) was closed and having building works when we visited so the area was very quiet and the beach hadn't been cleaned so there was a lot of vegetation washed up on it. We went into Port Elizabeth to eat and go out every day.

Cilla is a gem. We booked late and she anticipated our needs made all pick up arrangements and called to confirm. The rooms are beautifully decorated, equipped with most of your self catering needs, no microwave unfortunately. Daily maid service is a lovely touch. Bequia is a truly simple and quiet island. Breathtaking panoramic views, gorgeous! But that is it. If you're down for a relaxing, romantic island getaway, Bequia is the place. If you're looking for an epicurean or adventure type holiday it's not the place. People are warm and friendly, you feel safe and it's just authentic Caribbean! The inn is close to the road so depending on your room you may get some road noise but this is also an advantage location wise. Easy drop off and pick up access as the island terrain is Very hilly with steep slopes. Taxis are easily accessed, you get a free phone on loan for your stay. Location close to restaurants, dollar buses, town centre and port, very close to the ocean and close proximity to other beaches by car. So the location was Great and the proximity to the main road was an asset here especially if you have small kids who may not be able to do too much walking. Some other properties further from the road may require more walking and limited amenity access. Franklyn was awesome, he took us in an island tour and was a great local guide and taxi driver. The service was great, people warm, island absolutely gorgeous and Sugarapple Inn was perfect for us!

Just had a terrific, relaxing week in Bequia. We enjoyed our stay enormously thanks to the excellent help provided by Cilla, Franklin and the rest of the staff at Sugarapple Inn. In fact, everyone in Bequia is so friendly and helpful. We intended it being a working holiday, so we were insistent on having good Internet connectivity in the room. The Internet worked fine, but we didn't work at all because we so much enjoyed just relaxing. The Inn is well-planned and set in lovely grounds, with a refreshing pool to drop in after a day out. It's just short walk down to Friendship Bay and close to Port Elizabeth. Of course, nothing is far in Bequia anyway :-) We were really sad to leave and will return for another stress-free, relaxing holiday.

Room Tip: We had Unit #1, which we think had the best view. But I'm sure all the rooms are just as airy a...

The Sugar Apple was a great place to stay. There were no complaints about the hotel that my wife and I could find. The beds were comfortable, the unit had a/c, it even had a nice kitchen. The pool was well taken care of and was a short walk to the beach. If you stay here make sure to say hello to Nell the cat. She is a sweet young cat that is very friendly.
