“Awesome room”
Reviewed 8 November 2005

It's not a four-star place by any means, but it was roomy and comfortable and had A/C and a full kitchen, not to mention it's a four-minute hike through a freakin' rainforest to the beach! For $50/night, what more could you ask for? It's not a luxury suite, but you're not paying for a luxury suite. For B$1.25 you can take the Zedar to Bridgetown and do all your shopping, and if you insist on a taxi, it'll cost you B$15 to get back. You can just as easily go to the Zedar station and ask for Blackrock, and you'll get dropped off by the TigerMart gas station and walk through the park to get back to the Walmer. The Walmer is very close to a few different restaurants, but you'll definitely want to eat at Bridgetown or St. Lawrence Gap. I loved the Walmer.

Reviewed 26 January 2004

We booked our stay through the Walmer Apt. website. On our arrival date to the hotel there was noone to greet us. After searching the grounds a man appeared from behind a bush holding a machete. When we asked him if there was anyone there, he said "no, they are all away home". He took us to our "room" where the key was hanging in the door and gave us a form to fill in. When we asked if he was in charge, he said "Now yes".
The atmosphere was getting more and more strange !!? The front picture of the hotel on their website is far from the reality. The hotel is on the main road, with a tiny little gravel square at the front and junk yard at the back. The building is in need of repair. The hotel was dead. We only saw one other couple. The studio room was on the corner near the road and was very noisy. There was no bed. Just two single sofa beds (no sheets provided). Furniture old and worn out, bathroom very basic with window looking onto corridor and room door far from secure. After looking at the room we turned around and left. The website is misleading. Good for backpackers but not for a romantic stay. P.S. : When I checked my bank statement, they had charged me for 3 nights.
