Fodor's Review

This affordable beachfront oasis nestled in a tranquil corner of Dickenson Bay delights with intimacy and warmth, and knowledgeable Aussie owner Tony Johnson gladly acts as a de facto tourist board. Cleverly designed suites have a small bedroom, Pullman-style kitchen with microwave, living area, and patio or balcony. Atmospheric accents like island CDs, painted gourds, antique maps, and driftwood wall hangings are counterpointed by modern touches (flat-screen TVs and raised glass-and-chrome basins). Still, many guests savor the natural sound system of soothing surf with harmonizing crickets, bananaquits, and tree frogs in Tony's extravagant, enchanted garden. Rooms 9 and 10 overlook the sea, and ground-floor units represent fine buys for families—Number 3 virtually extends into that lushly landscaped pool area.

Bring some Off!

Some friends and I recently stayed at Siboney. The location was great--really close to St. John and, therefore, a variety of restaurants. It is attached to Coconut Grove, which we really enjoyed--fantastic food and great bar. The staff was great. The rooms were comfortable, but only the bedroom is enclosed. The sitting room is exposed to the open air and mosquitoes--lots of mosquitoes. Otherwise, it would have been a good choice.

Can't beat this Authentic Tropical Setting

Beautiful gardens and pool and terrific restaurant are some of the benefits of this small gem located in Dickenson Bay. The location is perfect for enjoying the beach, other water activities and trying other nearby restaurants (we loved The Beach and Bay House). We rented a jeep and explored the rest of the island easily from here. Rooms are big and airy but this is not an "American style" hotel (no business center, no thick glass windows, etc.).

We'll definitely stay here again if we go back to Antigua.

A little bit of paradise

I spend two one-week stays in Antigua and now always stay in Room #2 at the SBC. I like it simply because the staff are not in your face all the time but on hand when you need them. The owner, Tony Johnson is usually there to give help and advise - and since he has been on the island for 40 years, he knows Antigua, and most of its inhabitants, very well. The rooms are cool, light and airy with great views onto a magnificent tropical garden and I can

stay in if I feel like it as it has a full size fridge and cooking facilities. The beach is only 30 feet away and is part of the Dickenson Bay, which is one of the best bays in the Caribbean. With an excellent restaurant on the beach and St Johns (Antigua's capital only 5 minutes by taxi), no other hotel I have stayed at on the island compares. It's a real home from home – my own little apartment which I rent when I want it. Perfect.

Hit and Miss

No question, when things go right here, it is a lovely place. Clean as an operating room, friendly maids, excellent and tasteful decor and landscaping, good security, generally quiet. And when the owner chooses to be friendly, he is a true raconteur, a wealth of local lore, and his wife is a delight at all times. But . . . this is also a place where you need to ensure you accept that when something is wrong, you can get an earful from the defensive

ownership and certain staff alike, no matter how obvious it is that it is they who screwed up, or how gentle and unthreatening your request -- especially at the affiliated restaurant (where, BTW, breakfast service can take forever). Local non-guest youngsters sometimes take over the pool, too, and although they are great kids, they are kids and who wants to swim amidst all the splashing? Plus the septic system drains by the pool and smells at times. Too, the beach has badly eroded, although it is still adequate. Again, when things goes right, this place is delightful, but who needs to go for a roll of the dice and hope nothing goes wrong, or that if it does whomever you talk too is not in a bad mood? Not us, not again -- there's enough flip-off attitude around the rest of the year without paying for it in Antigua.
