#1 of 4 hotels in St. Eustatius
Beautifully located on Orange Bay, Lower Town, Oranjestad and a hike away from the Quill Volcano, the highest point on Statia with panoramic views over the entire island and neighboring islands, the Caribbean Sea and Atlantic Ocean. The intimate hotel convinces with its charming, elegant and cozy ambiance, where guests can find peace and pure relaxation without any unnecessary additions. The restaurant offers a diversified gastronomic experience accompanied by stunning ocean views. The Old Gin House is conveniently located on Orange Bay, right next to Scubaqua Dive Center in a quiet and historical area.

We had the pleasure to just spend 4 nights on Statia at The Old Gin House. Although hotel was not fully operational (due to Covid), owners/operators Marlies and Sybolt, were super accommodating to ensure we had a total island, great experience. This outstanding property is the ideal blend of old world charm and first world values and service. We had a large suite with a memory foam king size bed, fantastic view but an old world ambiance. A few steps from your suite is easy access to the ocean and a comfy lounge area complete with Heineken on draft. And to top it off, you are just paces away from the island's dive shops.

My group came to Statia to dive. The Old Gin House is located within walking distance of Scubaqua, the best dive op on the island. The staff at the hotel works with the staff at the dive center to make it a seamless experience. All our dive equipment was taken care of from beginning to end. Rooms are clean with a decidedly European feel. The main building used to house the Cotton Gin for the island. It is beautiful and well maintained. Every room has Air conditioning, WIFI, a smart TV and a mini fridge. Of course, we didn’t even use many of these amenities because we spent all of our days diving the awesome reefs surrounding the island. The pool area is inviting and the pool is heated and crystal clear. There is a restaurant right across the street and you are only. Short walk away from the main town. The views are spectacular and the staff is friendly and unobtrusive. This was perfect for our needs. I highly recommend.

Made a reservation for 2 nights and checked out one night earlier. This hotel has a lot of potential but the service is extremely disappointing. We went for a diving trip and decided to stay here as it is supposed to be the best hotel on the island and was in walking distance to the diving center. The lady who did out check in could not be bothered and was not friendly at all. She gave us the key of the room without any explanation where to go. When I asked her where the room was she pointed to the other side of the street and told us we just had to go there and would find it. She could not even be bothered to get up from the chair. She did not explain anything of the hotel, where breakfast was, timings, nothing. The lounge near the ocean was very nice with a stunning view. We had some drinks and snacks and ordered something to eat. The waitress told us we were not allowed to eat where we were sitting as all meals had to be taken at a table on the upper deck. When I asked her why she told me the lower deck was for drinks and finger food only and that meals had to be eaten with fork and knife. As if we were planning to eat our food with our hands. All service came with huffing and puffing and the waitress rolling her eyes each time we asked something. Service was horrible but the food on the other hand was very nice. After breakfast I asked for a Nespresso. I was told that I had a machine in my room and could make one myself. Why have a bar / lounge where you serve drinks if you want guests to make their own coffee in the room. The next day at 13h30 I asked for a glass of rose wine. The same grumpy reception lady told me that alcohol was only served as of 16h00 and that for now I could get a water or a coke. Again I got an answer in an arrogant way with an employee rolling her eyes at me. We preferred to leave and stay somewhere else so checked out one day earlier. The room we had was spacious and very clean. During my stay I met 4 employees and only one was friendly and very helpful.

The people are really there to help you enjoy your stay, the couple that own the resort are genuine and helpful - if something isn't right (like a flight problem) they will help get you back on track without hesitation. Their improvements on the Hotel are many and done very well - the food is excellent!

The room was big, with good AC and ceiling fan, as well as very comfortable bed. I had a nice view of the ocean from the room and my veranda, and a beautiful sunset view in the evening. The manager was really nice and helpful. This is the place to be when in Statia.
