We stayed at this lovely property before a sailing trip. Our ocean front suite with a patio was tastefully furnished in Tommy Bahama designer furnishings. Many small thoughtful touches, like fresh milk replenished daily for the in room coffee machine. The restaurant was casual with great service and good food. The staff was always available with suggestions for dining and we loved the hotel taxi service.
We used the small and well equipped gym on the first day, but took to beach walks and swimming in the sea after.
The beach was right outside our door, but the water was a little choppy. I was told that this is the windy side of the island. We met the owner whilst we were having breakfast and it is apparent that he personally oversees all aspects of this charming hotel.

When we arrived at the end of June, the resort was basically empty, except for us and one other couple! We had the staff, the beach and the pool exclusively to ourselves. We stayed in the Oceanfront room, which was very clean and large. The furniture was nice as well, although a couple of the pictures on the wall and the curtains need to be updated. The balcony overlooking Friendship Bay was the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine. There's a pool, spa, gym and a very nice restaurant, which is great because you would have to hire a taxi to get to any other restaurant - Bequia Beach Hotel is a bit secluded. Luckily, the food here is delicious! The staff at this resort are some of the best we've come across. All were attentive, professional, helpful and very friendly. We would definitely return here. The welcome rum punch was a great bonus :)

Following a recommendation from our travel agent (Tropic Breeze) we decided to stay at the Bequia Beach Hotel on Bed & Breakfast basis. This hotel surpassed all our expectations and for 2 weeks we were able to completely switch off and really enjoy our time there. The quality of all the food served in the Bagatelle Restaurant was impressive so much so that the need to eat out was minimal.
We did hire a Jeep for two days from Noel's Taxis/Hire Car (good people & well worth it) the island is quite small so after 2 days in the car we managed to see most places (beaches are stunning!)
Bequia is a truly unspoilt island in the Grenadines and retains the feeling of a working island with real people and thankfully no large hotel chains!
The Bequia Beach Hotel is a very unique & relatively new boutique hotel built and run by Bengt Mortstedt who had a dream to create a high quality hotel with spacious grounds and where each room is spacious and individually appointed and to that end he has succeeded.
The friendliness, quality of service and the attention to detail by all the staff in the hotel was exceptional all of which made for a truly memorable experience – so much so that this is one hotel we would definitely recommend and be returning to.

A most enjoyable and relaxing stay at the Bequia Beach Hotel over the Easter weekend this year for 10 days.

This is a resort totally at ease with itself, and rather refreshingly spends no time at all trying to smother its guests with artificial hype. Instead, you are well looked after by confident, engaging and genuine staff who take pride in their work and treat you as most welcome visitors. Both the owner and the resort manager deserve great credit for this culture of friendly respect.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom villa with plunge pool which was comfortable and quiet. The food at the restaurant was consistently excellent, with the chef and his team at their best with the fresh 'catch of the day' and lunchtimes and evenings. The gym was small but fine for our needs. The pool would, perhaps, feel overcrowded if the resort was full...

The beach itself is a little narrow and the sea & breaking surf not as clear as you could experience on other bays, perhaps. However, getting out to other parts of the island for the day is cheap & simple by local taxi, so this did not adversely impact us. Personally, I would like to see a little more attention given to life guarding on the beach - the absence of a trained, overt specialist on the beach concerned me - but a simple problem for the resort to address.

Happy to recommend the Bequia Beach - we had a thoroughly chilled-out stay

We spent a week at the Bequia Beach Hotel at the beginning of May and enjoyed a most relaxing, peaceful vacation. Apparently we had arrived at the start of the 'low season' and things on the island had really started to slow down - consequently we were among a handful of couples staying at the hotel and it was bliss. The staff were attentive and friendly, quick to note if we needed towels and seat coverings brought across to the beach loungers or wanted food/ beverages, but never obtrusive. That feeling of calm permeated throughout the hotel - it was lovely to hear the sound of the sea, or birds in the garden, rather than annoying disco music or non-stop radio chatter!

The hotel is spread out over a beautiful garden with a variety of rooms. We stayed in a 'beachfront room' on the ground floor that lead out directly on to the beach with the sound of the waves breaking at night. I'd highly recommend. Other rooms were set back either rising up the hillside (a few stairs but with nice views and a second swimming pool) or what appeared to be within small cottages. The interior furnishings were fantastic - beautiful and of excellent quality - the Scandinavian owner's aesthetic was clear to see!

In fact the owner was on-site throughout our stay, eating in the restaurant every evening, sometimes alone or hosting guests. The hotel manager (a local lady who had previously worked in hospitality in London before returning home) was also present throughout, checking with guests that everything was in order. The overall impression was of a professional, well managed establishment.

Clearly our stay coincided with a quiet period (one that I'd recommend, the weather was excellent) so I'm guessing things would be much more lively in high season. However the hotel grounds feel so spacious that I can't ever imagine it feeling over run or crowded. And Bequia Island is a delight - charming, traditional and with some of the friendliest people we've met in the Caribbean.

Room Tip: Choose a ground floor beach room if you have mobility problems

From the moment we stepped off the ferry from St Vincent, Bequia charmed us and the hotel & its staff were so welcoming. Hot & dusty we were met with cold towels & a complimentary drink. We spent 3 nights here, and it was just perfect. The staff were extremely pleasant and exceptionally attentive. We were there during a quiet period, but we never had to look for a towel, lounger cushions or a drink, there was always someone anticipating our needs. The food was good, especially breakfast, though the menu was not extensive. Our first night was a BBQ with live music and well attended. One evening we had the opportunity to meet hotel management at a cocktail evening which was a very nice touch. We could only get wi-fi at the pool or reception area, not in the room, which was an inconvienience but hardly a reason to complain when Bequia should be a place you go to get away from the stresses of life! There were no tea & coffee making facilities in the room but it appears these can be ordered via room service. Wonderful toiletries, robes, towels & tasefully decorated rooms. We had a room at the top of the hotel, with balcony overlooking a small pool, and the second bar which was closed when we were there. Did not make use of the spa facilities.
