Caribbean cheap inns and hotels

When people think of Caribbean, they usually think of luxurious five-star resorts, but there are plenty of cheaper options available, and they are often just as good as the more expensive ones. Going to a cheaper island, such as the Dominican Republic, Saba, or Dominica can help you save money, but even on more expensive ones you can find inns and resorts where you can sleep for much less without sacrificing comfort.

Cheap hotels and Inns

Bayaleau Point Cottages, Carriacou, Grenada Four colourful cottages built by Dan Golden in a quiet hillside overlooking the Grenadines. A 28-foot boat takes you on snorkel trips to the perfect waters of the legendary Tobago Cays and cruises throughout the Grenadines. Perfect for families with children.

Beachcombers Hotel, St. Vincent A popular 31-room hotel nestled in a lush botanical garden and only a short walk away from Villa Beach. There is a pool, a restaurant, a bar, and a spa services facility. Live bands and dancers perform here during weekends.

Bellafonte Cateau de la Mer, Bonaire This sophisticated palazzo-style hotel is located just a few miles south of the Capital Kralendijk. The view of the ocean is breathtaking, the rooms are chic and spacious, and the atmosphere intimate. Don’t expect the amenities of a large resort, though: there are no bars, restaurants or swimming pools to be found here.

Carringtons Inn, St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands This welcoming bed-and-breakfast is only a short drive from Christiansted and owned by Claudia and Roger Carrington. Friendly hosts, lovingly decorated rooms, and excellent breakfasts will ensure that you come here again and again. The hillside suburban location means you need a car to get around.

Coco Palm, St. Lucia Opened in Rodney Bay Village in 2005, this cool boutique hotel is definitely the honey, with French Caribbean plantation style décor and every modern amenity at hand. The hotel has stylish rooms and suites, an excellent restaurant, and is only a lazy stroll away from the village’s entertainment and beautiful Reduit Beach.

The Horny Toad, St. Maarten/St. Martin Besides its funny name, this lovely guesthouse is also known for its congenial atmosphere and the hospitality of owner Betty Vaughn. Its astounding view of Simpson Bay, immaculate rooms, and stylish décor has earned the Horny Toad the “Fodor’s Choice” and the “Best Guesthouse” awards, respectively from Fodor’s and the Daily Herald. There is a beautiful beach nearby if you need a sunbath.

La Sagesse Nature Center, Grenada Secluded on La Sagesse Bay, this country inn consists of four buildings: a beachside, open-air restaurant/bar, an old manor house with five large guestrooms, a cottage with two individually rented rooms, and a beachfront building with two rooms and three suites, two of which are duplex. Nature buffs will like what La Sagesse has to offer, including a beautiful, mostly deserted beach, nature trails, and a salt-pond bird sanctuary fringed with thick mangroves.

Frangipani Hotel, Bequia Built by a Bequia sea captain almost a century ago, this historic shingle-sided, two-story building is owned by former prime minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines James Mitchell and managed by his daughter. The Frangipani has exquisite hillside rooms with breathtaking views of the harbor, a good restaurant, and a lively bar. If you want to take it easy on your wallet, book one of the five simple, inexpensive West Indian style rooms in the original family home.

Peach & Quiet, Barbados This small unpretentious ocean fronted inn on the southeast coast is probably the best deal you can find in Barbados. Owned by Adrian and Margaret Loveridge, the hotel consists of 22 spacious, elegant suites with ceiling fans, a large terrace or balcony, bathroom, a lounge area, icebox and personal safe. There is plenty to keep you busy here, including a freshwater pool, beaches, sea rock pool, walking tours, and stargazing at night.

Rockhouse Hotel, Jamaica Perched on the cliffs of Pristine Cove in Negril’s West End, this small and trendy boutique hotel delivers – at very affordable rates – both resort comforts and funky style. Facilities include and award-winning Jamaican restaurant, a spa, yoga, yoga, kayaking, and 60-foot cliff-top infinity pool. If you’re a budget-minded traveller, you can book a regular room, but don’t expect anything fancy. If you can afford it, I strongly suggest renting one of the thatched roofed villas, which have outdoor showers and private sunbathing decks perched on the cliff’s edge.

Rocky Shore Guest House, Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands Come here for an authentic Caymanian experience. Owners Chris and Trina offer complete massage services and traditional classes, including cooking, rope making, or herbal folklore. The apartments are comfortable and decorated with Caymanian crafts.

Bay Gardens Beach Resort, St. Lucia Opened in 2007, the Bay Gardens Beach Resort & Spa sits on beautiful Reduit Beach in Rodney Bay Village. The suites include living and dining areas, kitchens, and spacious modern bathrooms. A hospitable staff and exceptional service ensure that you will enjoy your stay.
