We had a wonderful 12 days at the Sweet Retreat! Robert and Shelby are fantastic hosts - offering advice on where to eat and what to do, plus making reservations when we needed them. The rooms are clean and comfortable and Shelby is a wonderful cook. We hardly left Lower Bay. The beach, the view, the nice local restaurants, our...

We just returned from a 2 week vacation at Sweet Retreat. Robert and Shelby treated us like family. The food was amazing, fresh fish every day and everything on the menu locally grown. We stayed in the newest room at the top of the stairs, what a view! And to top it off a star fruit tree right off the...

I can only echo what others have said, Robert and Shelby are wonderful hosts. The hotel has a spectacular setting, with stunning views from all rooms. It is a short but steep walk down to the beach. Walking into town takes about half an hour, but taxis are readily available. Food fantastic, dinner is not served on Thursdays but it...

Any health benefits from walking up the steps to Sweet Retreat and then the bedrooms are probably undone by Shelby's generous and delicious food. The fresh fruit at breakfast was a delight as was Philicia's bread in the evening. Robert and Shelby cheerfully adapted to a few dietary quirks and also packed up the muffins we couldn't eat at breakfast...

A big thank you to Robert and Shelby for a wonderful stay. Great views from our room, short walk to beach and lovely afternoon tea:-) Breakfasts and evening meals were very good but would have loved some toast for breakfast:-)

The views from all the rooms are stunning. Robert and Shelby are excellent hosts who are incredibly helpful. Shelby's cooking was so good that it is going to take me months to work off the extra pounds. The only down side to our visit was the Mosquitos. Take plenty of spray with you if you go.

We spent two wonderful weeks at the Sweet Retreat on beautiful Lower Bay. The hotel is situated on one of the nicest beaches on Bequia, with good swimming and snorkelling. Port Elizabeth can be reached on foot in about 30 minutes, or a 10 min taxi ride. Robert and Shelby are top notch hosts. Shelby is a great cook, she...

To echo many of the other reviews of the Sweet Retreat the whole experience has been wonderful! From the moment we booked our trip Robert and Shelby have been fantastic in helping us plan our holiday. They've gone out of their way to include special touches just for us. The views are absolutley breathtaking, the food is fantastic and it's...

Well where do you start. The whole experience from booking to departing was so trouble free, because of Robert and Shelby. They both take so much time and put in so much effort to make your stay part of the holiday experience. Other reviewers have put it far more eloquently, but Sweet Retreat really is just that. We had the...

Since this was our 5th visit I wasn't going to write another review. But since we stayed in a different room and it was during low, low season, I thought I'd submit one. We have previously stayed in the ''Yellow Room'' and this time we had the '"Brown Room"". I really liked this room, probably even more than the Yellow....
