Fodor's Expert Review Beachcombers Hotel & Spa

Windward Hwy., Villa Beach, St. Vincent, VC0274, St. Vincent and the Grenadines

Guests choose Beachcombers for its comfortable beachfront rooms, friendly service, and lively atmosphere both day and night. In 1990, Cheryl Hornsey opened a six-room bed-and-breakfast in her family home overlooking the sea at Villa Beach. Today, that little inn has morphed into a delightful 48-room hotel with a pool, restaurant, and popular bar. Rooms are in the original family home and in brightly colored (orange and yellow) three-story buildings. Half the guest rooms overlook the sea; the others face the garden's frenzy of flowers. All are tidy and comfortable, with either patios or balconies with lovely views. Each of the two enormous penthouse suites has a full kitchen, an elegantly furnished sitting-dining room, a modern bath with a whirlpool tub, and a large private balcony with a view of the Grenadines. Beachcombers also offers spa services: aromatherapy, facials, sauna, steam bath, and more. And on Saturday evenings, you'll usually find a live band and dancing on the pool deck adjacent to the Beach House restaurant and bar.
