“Beautiful and very Welcoming!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2012

We loved our 10 days here during the Easter Regatta 2012. Cilla, the manager is like a family member - she will go out of her way to help you have the best time possible in Bequia. The staff at the hotel are all fantastic. Otto would get us fresh fruit from the garden, Tilla would cook a fantastic breakfast and even invited us on a walk. Sandra and Argie were always full of smiles and laughter.

Our room was very comfortable, clean and cool even during the day. The beach is easily reached from the garden. Its easy to get into town - Franklin the driver is always at hand.

All in all we would thoroughly recommend staying at Sugarapple!

Sugarapple Inn is a fabulous experience. Cilla anticipates your needs even before you realize you require help. Glitches in my travel arrangements were taken care of before I knew there was a problem. Cilla can help arrange anything you may want to do, and gives helpful suggestions along the way. The rooms are lovely and well tended. The kitchen area is well equipped. The shuttered porch/living area with views to the sea are wonderful. The housekeeping ladies always have a smile and laugh. The morning coffee and breads with Tilla are grand, a great start to the day. It is a good time to interact with the other folks who stay at the inn. The friendliness of the staff extends to everyone I met on Bequia. I hesitate to post this review because I am afraid to let the secret of Bequia out of the bag, but Sugarapple deserves rave reviews.

We stayed at Sugarapple Inn end of February, 2012. Every thing about this place is commendable: the staff couldn't be any friendlier (in a genuine way), from Cilla to all the girls and to Franklin. The setting is so beautiful, overlooking Friendship Bay and surrounded by lush gardens. Breakfast al fresco, swimming pool, walk way to the beach makes for a truly relaxing and enjoyable stay. We liked the location - halfway between the quaint fishing village of Paget Farm and Port Elizabeth - which made it easy to get rides on the vans, which is the public transportation. When in Bequia, I highly recommend you travel on the vans, once in a while. You get to mingle with the locals, who are very friendly and make you feel at home. But back to the hotel. The room we were in, #1, has a fantastic view. The front room, kitchen, dining area has shutters on three of the walls, the bedroom is very nicely appointed. The colors and the furniture and the furnishings work very well together - some of the pictures I took like paintings. Even if you don't want to, this place relaxes you. Our room had a/c, flat screen TV, safe and a cell phone. The bathroom is very practical, nicely laid out. Every thing was spic and span clean. One day, on the way out, I had a minor problem with the room lock. When I came back it was fixed already. As I said before, the setting, the rooms and amenities are excellent, especially for the reasonable rates, but the biggest asset of the Sugarapple Inn is the staff. As far as Bequia is concerned - we want to come back every year.

Room Tip: #1 has some of the best views, it's the furthest from the road, so is also very quiet,

When you think it couldn't get any better the Sugarapple fools you. This is our 4th visit and we cannot get enough of the place. Cilla and her wonderful staff once again made our visit perfect. The new addition of the continental breakfast is a wonderful way to start the day, exchanging ideas with other guests and getting some ideas on new adventures. It would be a nice touch if fresh juice was added to the continental breakfast. One evening Tilla (the chef) prepared a great b-b-que for all the guests, fun was had by all. The owner is replacing the appliances and always adding new features to the property. The new walkway to the beach is wonderful.

Cilla and her staff go out of their way to make sure your stay is everything you dreamt of. We've already booked for next year!!

Room Tip: All rooms are fine, I like #'s 3,4,7, and 8

This is simply a wonderful place where you are quickly made to feel a part of the local atmosphere. During our visit there were many repeat, long-term visitors, and we can see why they do it. Sugarapple perfectly reflects the relaxed beauty of this island. Cilla gives the Inn its charming personality. And Franklyn, the driver/tour guide extraordinaire, is there to give you the total island experience. They both become an integral part of your visit to Bequia. And everybody on Bequia knows everybody else on Bequia. Everybody knows where you ate the night before, and who your driver was. The longer we stayed, the more we liked it. It's the kind of place where even if some little thing goes wrong, you realize it doesn't matter, because there is a much more important beauty here. If you are looking for resort-style amenities, try another location -- or really, another island. If you want the warmth and genuine hospitality that pervades Bequia, you can do no better than Sugarapple Inn. A great deal for the money. Thank you for everything, Cilla and Franklyn.

Based on all the positive reviews and communications with Cilla, the lovely manager at the Sugar Apple Inn, I booked 16 nights for a winter vacation with my husband. Where to begin, the warmest welcome which included an invitation to a local rotary club barbecue and Valentine's Day dance. What a great time we had! Every interaction at the Sugar Apple was a good experience. All of the staff, every laundress, housekeeper, groundskeeper were wonderful. A special shout out to Cilla, Ronelle, Sondra,Tilla, Agee. From doing our laundry, to purchasing and cooking fresh caught lobster, preparing delicious breakfasts (on request), and keeping our unit spotlessly clean, there seemed to be no request that was left unmet. The rooms were beautiful and the establishment is very well maintained. A few minutes walk brings you to Friendship Bay beach where there is another hotel with a lovely little beach bar (and what looked to be a nice open-air restaurant, which we did not visit). We really loved Bequia, I believe we've found the island where we will return again and again and I can't speak highly enough of the people at Sugar Apple Inn. Meredith and Kin

Room Tip: we were in unit 6 which we really liked. second floor.

I did a lot of research before choosing the Sugar Apple Inn for our 8 nights on Bequia. I was looking for an affordable place that wasn't too far from town or a beach, with a pool that would be convenient for our family with two small kids. Cilla and her staff were amazing-- they greeted us with hugs when we arrived and our beautiful room was bright, clean, and decorated with fresh flowers. The staff was wonderful with our children, and anytime we had a question or a need there was someone there to help us out. A really nice touch was the cell phone that was included with our room; as we had other friends staying on the island it was wonderful to be able to stay in touch with them. I highly recommend this hotel and will definitely stay there again if I am back on Bequia.
