Keegan's Beachside Hotel,Apartments & Cottage

Reviewed January 15, 2011

Keegan's is a local family owned and operated guest house where you are treated more like family than a guest. The rooms are simple but impeccably clean; the service genuinely warm, and you are all of 12 metres from the beach. If something does not work the first time, Smitty will put it right. Keegan's is NOT for you if you are looking for a gated community Caribbean vacation. It is for you if you are a traveler at heart who knows the real thing when you see it. Keegan's has recently reintroduced the MAP, where the price includes 2 good meals a day. This really does make it the best deal around. We have stayed at Keegan's over a 20 year period, and this recommendation comes from the heart.

It's basic, but clean and with a great location, almost on the beach, it represents good value for money. It could improve on the service front food and drink wise, but there are alternatives only a few minutes walk away on both sides. Delightful staff and owners more than make up for any deficiencies.

Let me start by saying that the location of Keegan's was fantastic, the owners were extremely hospitable, and the rates were a tremendous value, which allowed for us to stay in Bequia twice as long as we had originally planned.

Don't expect the rooms to be luxurious, you get what you pay for. Our apartment was very basic and spartan, with only the barest of essentials. We were lucky we had the foresight to bring our own toiletries. My husband described our accommodations as "rustic".

Also, because the area is so hot and humid, which is no fault of Keegan's, the linens and towels never seemed completely dry and had a sour, mildew odor. I couldn't stand it, so I used my own pillow and blanket that I happened to have with me for airplane travel. My husband didn't mind it so much.

Sleep was the most difficult, however, because neighboring dogs kept us up all night. We had to endure 2 weeks of barking, howling, and whining every single evening into the wee hours. I never got a good nights rest, even though I brought earplugs with me.

It was really nice having a kitchen in our apartment, and the money we saved allowed us to do a lot of other activities on the island. It was also lovely being just steps away from a gorgeous beach with beautiful reefs to explore. Even so, I just couldn't stay here again. When I'm on vacation, I like being able to relax all the way, and that means being able to sleep in relative peace and in sheets that don't stink.

We were really looking forward to staying at Keegan's -- the location on Lower Bay seemed very appealing and it is so reasonably priced but unfortunately, that was about all that we found appealing once we arrived. It is not the cleanest place (and we have stayed in quite a few places including small hotels and we are not terribly picky). It also is quite noisy--the Number 10 room is right next to the kitchen and there was kitchen noise and loud music all night, way past midnight. It did not get quiet until the early morning hours. Also, it says it has A/C and there are units in each bedroom but there is no glass in the windows and there are no screens either--just shutters that you can close but they do leave gaps, so the A/C doesn't work that well and noise and bugs can still come in. We had to leave this property earlier than we expected. Also, the night we arrived, there was a private party in the restaurant, so we couldn't eat there. The bedrooms do have a toilet and shower -- they are literally right in the same room with just a shower curtain around them. I wondered if the excellent reviews of other travelers were mostly because they had come to Keegan's during the high season and maybe the hotel isn't fully functioning during low season, we came in June. Unfortunately, while the location is fine, we do not recommend this hotel. On the other hand, Bequia is truly wonderful and it's totally worth visiting, even with the long trek that it requires.

We stayed at Keegans (calling it Keegans Beach RESORT is a bit over the top) but it is a great option for a family run operation.
It sits directly across from Lower Bay Beach on a very un-busy dead end road which is a perfect situation for families with kids.
Our two bedroom apartment was just fine for the price paid-clean as a whistle and with everything you would need to prepare most meals-which saved us a bundle of money with two kids. Lower Bay is a great beach.
They have a great B.B.Q. on weekends that gets a lot of locals and an onsite restaurant that serves breakfast if you choose.
Its within walking distance to Port Elizabeth and Princess Margaret beach and the restaurants and watering holes of town. Altho-be warned-the walk from Lower Bar to the harbor is not for those with heart conditions-a good part of the walk is up a STEEP hill.
The help at this place are quite helpfull and courteous and attended to our every need.
We are going back with family members for easter week and the yearly regatta in 2010.
I would recommend this place hands down for those that are seeking some local flavour and some good accomodations at a reasonable price!!!

We went to Bequia as a short trip -3 days during our holiday in Barbados at the beginning of Feb this year.
The hotel rooms are quite basic but very clean with everything you need. Aircon, fridge, a cooling breeze and a shower that has hot water!
The staff at Keegans are excellent - very friendly and nothing is too much trouble, also they suggested "Fatman Taxis" who we used and would also recommend.
The location is perfect - two steps from the beach bar onto Lower Bay - beautiful beach with 3 other beach bars in close proximity.
It is easy to get to P/E either by taxi or water taxi only a few minutes away with the bars/restaurants and bank there.
The view over the bay is stunning and the beach is great .
Would love to go back there and would stay at Keegans again
