Captain Oliver's Hotel
Ranked #7 of 8 Hotels in Oyster Pond
Reviewed 26 May 2017

Location is not bad, nice little bars near there and good outlook on ocean and marina.
Prices where very reasonable so easy to put up with as similar accommodation would cost you twice that much. stayed 4 days there and management was very helpful considering the issue the place has and will have in the future if nothing will be done.

The staff is friendly and helpful, and the location is ideal for anyone who wants to sleep in a hotel room before chartering with The Moorings or Sunsail. The sea view side has a terrific view of the channel out of Oyster Pond, the swimming pool is delightful, and the beds are comfortable. But it takes them a while to produce breakfast...better to walk to Le pain d'épices. And the rooms sometimes show signs of recovery from shabbiness.

First of all, we had to ask about 10 different people how to get here as we NEVER did find a sign for either the hotel, marina, or the restaurant. Room is very outdated, needs lots of paint. Outlets need special adapters which they did provide when we checked in. The safe key was also available. Bed was hard. There was 2 twin beds pushed together to make a king. Pool looked nice but pool deck could also use updating. Bartender at outdoor bar was clueless the one night we stopped so we decided to go elsewhere. Parking was also a nightmare, people kept parking behind us as there isn't enough spaces to park. Good thing we didn't need our car at that point.

We were lucky enough to get an ocean view room and the view was spectacular. These rooms are numbered 100 to about 110.
Can't really comment on the marina view, but generally the room was kept spotlessly clean and the staff were always very helpful. There's some good places to eat and drink very close by and the ferry to St Barth's is right there. You may need to rent a car as taxis are expensive and buses rare. The only problem we had was the lack of parking - seemed that employees cars got spaces that should really be left for guests. Overall a good experience, would definitely stay there again.
