Fodor's Review

This small ecofriendly hotel is perfect for divers who want a moderately priced spacious room or suite right on the ironshore far from the madding crowds. Units have picture windows overlooking the Caribbean, imported Dutch fixtures, IKEA-style cabinetry, clip art of flowers and butterflies, and Constructivist-inspired Marimekko fabrics from Finland. The gracious, gregarious Dutch-born owner, Arie Barendrecht, also rents a delightful one-bedroom unit with separate entrance in his adjacent house called the Mermaid Suite, with themed decor. The cutting-edge dive operation, DiveTech, runs smoothly, catering to a wide array of needs, and Duppies restaurant is surprisingly good. As Arie says, "The whole idea is to complement the dive experience." The area also lures anglers so "we'll cook what you bring in." Add great shore diving (especially in the calmer summer season) with a four- or five-minute swim to a 60-foot drop, and this is a no-brainer.
