Fodor's Review

If you want to feel as if you're doing your ecological part without giving up every modern convenience, consider these tiny cottages. They're hidden among tropical flora 1,500 feet up Booby Hill. All have heated showers and patios. Take in the view from a hammock in the vegetarian snack bar, or lounge by the pool, which has the only bridge on the island. Vegetarian dinners are available every Tuesday and Thursday for $10. Drinks can be had at the honor bar. Be sure to

pick up a bottle of homemade banana, vanilla, ginger, or chili pepper rum on your way out; it makes a great gift or memento. Owners speak fluent English, Dutch, German, Spanish and some French.

Nature, Beauty and Fresh Baked Bread

We stayed at El Momo (in the villas) in the spring of last year. We landed in the middle of a tropical depression, at night, two hours late. No worries though, as there were fresh flowers and a bottle of water to greet us. In the morning, Oliver came to bring us down the hill for supplies. Each morning a walk down the hill brings you to El Momo's main property and open-air breakfast room. There, you're treated to a homemade breakfast complete

with fresh baked bread and custom blended tea from Oliver's mother's tea house in Germany. Angelika, Oliver and the kids could not be more friendly and helpful (a common trait on Saba), and their little oasis is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. Can't wait to go back!
