Stayed 4 nights at the Frangipani over christmas and really enjoyed it there. It's centrally located - downtown to your right, restaurants to your left and the water in front of you. The service was good but not great. Love the bar downstairs and the regulars who visit it...made a couple of friends at that bar. Our room was the best room at the hotel - it was nice, loved the exposed brick walls, comfy bed. Not much they could do about the water pressure which was like a sprinkle of rain. Wifi was hit and miss, but again, expected on Bequia. Overall, it was nice.

This Hotel is well located on the seawall walkway close to town and most of the action in Port Elizabeth. The Frangipani has always been a favorite of mine in Bequia. Service is good and the Deluxe garden rooms up the hill are large with a view of Admirality Bay.
The rooms are basic and on this trip there was no hot water and no solution was offered. Mosquito nets are a must. It is "old-school" caribbean and still has it's charm but needs a bit of refreshment.

Room Tip: Upper rooms have a great view

I would like to give this hotel a higher raiting, because the place was so wonderful, the garden so lush and beatiful, the owner so welcoming and thursday steel band barbeque just fantastic!
But I think the room was overrated, even though it had a privat balcony, kitchenette and was spasious. The main problem was the mattresses at the bottom of the bed - not very clean and not very nice to look at. The bathroom was old and not upgraded. It would be nice with an AC, but then we had to advance even moore in price. (We had garden view).
I know the prices in caribbean are generally high, but I think the staderd of the room should be higher when we pay US220/night.

If you arrive by foot/from the ferry: Just walk on the broadwalk along the sea. You be right there.

Dear Jeanette,
Thanks for your comments. We always appreciate feedback from our guests. The hotel is in the process of upgrading of rooms, including putting AC in the rooms, but the room you stayed in has not yet been done. We look forward to welcoming you back another time. Our Thursday night BBQ is indeed very popular. Im so pleased that you enjoyed it.

Although it was the low season at the hotel, we were warmly greeted and treated during our two day stay here. Everyone from Shanique (we hoped we spelled that correctly), Sabrina, Roger and Keean were friendly and warm in their disposition and candor. The facilities were great as expected and the best part is that it's a short walk to Princess Margaret Beach and to the quaint town of Port Elizabeth. The breakfast we had (french toast) was delicious and the bonus was the excellent coffee with free refills! We would definitely come back to Frangipani Hotel in the future. Thank you all at the Frangipani for making our short trip to Beqiua a sweet and memorable one.

Thank you so very much for your kind words. We try very hard to ensure that our guests feel welcome, like family, when visiting our small establishment. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay as much as we enjoyed meeting you and taking care of you while in Bequia. Looking forward to seeing you again soon.
