The island is a lovely albeit slow gem of a place. This is the best place in town, the old town, not the marina at Tyrell. It is recently renovated, the plumbing, electricity and net are good, though the staff are learning things like keys, safes, bookkeeping. Tell them, relax, wait a few minutes, and your worries melt away.

There are very few places to stay on Carriacou, a beautiful island that's kind of off everyone's radar. So I'll give the Mermaid Beach Hotel points for being clean and modern, with larger than usual rooms and, in our case, a lovely ocean view. It's also in the center of Hillsborough, the island's main town, and has an excellent beach right out front. And there's a restaurant that serves a very good breakfast, and lunch/dinner.

However I wouldn't quite give the hotel rave reviews, as it's a bit bare bones and could use just a few more amenities. But the price is good, and it's an excellent base from which to explore this fascinating island. And a few miles' walk in either direction will take you to two of the most spectacular beaches I've ever seen: Paradise, and Petit Carenage.

Room tip: Get an ocean view room

I was very happy with our hotel. Perfect location right on the beach and on the edge of Hillsborough. Just a 2 to 10 minute walk to restaurants, groceries, variety store, buses etc. I was very happy we chose Hillsborough to stay in.
The Mermaid was clean, friendly and quiet. The rooms don't have private balconies but your door is just steps from a common sitting area upstairs or down. The beach chairs and towels are a plus. The breakfast choices were fantastic and made the room price very reasonable. The room only had a fridge and kettle so the breakfast included was a bonus. Daily maid service was unexpected. The attached Callaloo Restaurant was very nice, though brewed coffee would have been preferable to instant! Two days out of four we had only instant. The room lacked towel bars or hooks of any kind. There is a closet but no dresser or shelving. Not sure why. But that is my only complaint!

We were able to request an ocean front room and it was very nice. It's a two-story hotel with about 20 rooms. The staff were friendly. We liked the location because it's in town (very small area), but it's about 5 minutes bus ride/taxi to Paradise Beach and maybe 10-15 to Tyrell Beach. A bus stop is right in front and they are plentiful and cheap (3.50 EC). The restaurant's food is ok. Be prepared, though, for a long wait whether or not anyone else is dining at the time. But, you know, it's Island Time. BTW, the Butterfly Bar is right next door and you need to stop in and have a Jack Iron rum. Trust me.

Room tip: Second floor. Room S-5. Overlooking ocean.

Options for accommodations on Cariacou seem limited but this was a pleasant surprise. Low key, friendly staff, clean well appointed (if basic rooms) right in Hillsborough village. On the beach. Only negative was that the hotel restaurant was only open for breakfast (included) and lunch. Evening meal options in the village were limited. Overall would recommend
