The Saba hotels are all quite attractive, especially if staying on a beach isn't your main priority when it comes to a Caribbean getaway. Beachfront lodging in Saba is hard to come by. In fact, there really aren't any beaches here. Instead, the hotels in Saba rest on hillsides, offering splendid views of the sea. The waters that surround Saba are some of the best in the world for scuba diving, and that's what brings most visitors in. Those who secure Saba accommodations also come for the hiking and the climbing, as there are plenty of good trails and steep cliffs to select from. When you're not enjoying the great outdoors or relaxing in your hotel on a Saba vacation, you can visit a museum, unwind at a day spa, or try a variety of cuisines at the island's restaurants. Since Saba is only five square miles in size, enjoying everything that it has to offer won't be hard.
If you want to sit in the lap of luxury during your trip to Saba, then a stay at Willard's of Saba is your best bet. Of all the Saba hotels, this one is the most luxurious. Saba doesn't have the most luxurious Caribbean hotels, though Willard's satisfies visitors with a refined taste. There are only seven guest units here, and they offer sweeping views. All of the spacious guest units boast balconies from which to take in the views, and can also enjoy the scenery while hanging out at the hotel's outdoor pool. In addition to an attractive heated pool, Willard's of Saba also features a hot tub, a tennis court, a fitness room, a bar, and a gourmet restaurant. Getting back to the rooms, the furnishings leave a little to be desired, though they are comfortable. As for the standard amenities in the tropically-themed guest units, they include a private bathroom, a clock radio, and a desk. Other amenities that are available depending on the unit include a refrigerator, a mini bar, and internet access. There are luxury resorts in the Caribbean that offer more in the way of amenities, but it's hard to top Willard's of Saba if you're truly looking to get away from it all.
As far as the luxury hotels in Saba are concerned, they are limited to Willard's of Saba and the Queen's Garden Resort (pictured). Set among gardens and forests, the Queen's Garden Resort is a relaxing choice. In addition to overlooking the Caribbean Sea, the Queen's Garden Resort also overlooks one of Saba's four small villages. The theme here is casual elegance, and if there's room in the budget, securing one of the suites with a private Jacuzzi room is recommended. All of the twelve guest units at the Queen's Garden Resort are spacious bungalows, and amenity highlights include cable TV, a kitchenette, a mini bar, a safe, a ceiling fan, internet access, and a coffee maker. Outside of the guest units, you'll find the largest swimming pool on the island. Other facilities that guests can enjoy include an onsite dive shop, a bar, and a fine dining restaurant that is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
The bulk of the hotels in Saba are mid-priced establishments that have a lot to offer. As such, many of Saba's 25,000 annual visitors choose them over the more upscale hotels. With the money that you save at a mid-range hotel, you might arrange an extra scuba diving excursion or book a guided hiking tour. One of the best Saba hotels is the Gate House, which offers seven tasteful guest units. A West Indian motif dominates the décor of the guest units, and comfortable furnishings figure among the amenities. Five of the guest units here are double rooms that have private bathrooms, hair dryers, and clock radios. If you want more amenities, you can always book the cottage or the villa, both of which offer kitchen facilities, large private patios, separate living and dining rooms, and added privacy. Should you be planning a Caribbean wedding, the cottage is ideal for couples. Whether you're on a honeymoon or not, the villa unit is extra attractive, thanks in part to the fact that it boasts a private pool. As for the overall facilities at this terrific hotel, they include two outdoor swimming pools and a restaurant that is known for its savory cuisine.
Attractive Saba accommodations are easy to come by, and while the rates at the mid-priced hotels are inviting enough, those looking to spend even less will want to keep the El Momo Cottages in mind. This eco-friendly lodging in Saba is arguably one of the best cheap Caribbean hotels, especially if you're into nature retreats. Only fourteen guests at a time can stay at this charming retreat, so booking ahead is a good idea. The hill that El Momo occupies offers fantastic sea views. When you're not enjoying those, it's just a five-minute walk to the small village of Windwardside. In this village you can visit a spa, do some grocery shopping, or stop by the tourist office, among other things. Visiting the tourist office might not be necessary during your stay at El Momo, however, as the staff can help you arrange hiking, climbing, and scuba diving excursions. The cottages at El Momo figure among the simpler Saba accommodations, and if you really want to save on rates, you can choose one of the units that shares a bathroom. If you have room in the budget, five of the cottages have private bathrooms, and two also have kitchenettes.
