The Old Gin House hotel is located in Lower Town Oranjestad just below the Fort Oranje. It is at a beautiful location with nice views of the Bay and the Island of Saba. There is good and safe snorkeling in the bay in front of the hotel along the submerged city wall with lots of a colorful fish and many...

Can't believe this is a 4 star hotel. The swimming pool is really dirty, airconditioning doesn't work well at alll, the fridge is empty with a luke warm bottle of water on top, there's an outdated coffee machine but no coffee or tea bags to be found, the bathroom is very outdated, there's an old dusty tv screen on the...

We stayed at this hotel for one night in March, in the midst of a two week sail around the Caribbean with our friends on their 43 ft. sailboat. We had not planned to stay on Statia originally, but had pulled into anchor in the harbour overnight and tour the island during the day. After we took a taxi tour...

I appreciate that one cannot expect all to work well on remote islands. I understand that it's unrealistic to expect the amenities of large cities to exist elsewhere. If you want it to be just like home, then stay home. The test in these circumstances isn't whether everything is working perfectly, it's the speed and the effectiveness of the response...

We spent a week at The Old Gin House as part of a dive trip in early February. Very relaxing, comfortable and pleasant - from arrival to departure! Located in the lower city, you can walk to the public doc, or hike uphill to the upper city. The property is built into a hillside, so if you have mobility issues,...

Husband and I spent a week on Statia for a dive trip and stayed at the Old Gin House Hotel. We are told that the Hotel is the nicest on the island and the location is beautiful. However, the hotel rooms are run down. The room we stayed in was filthy when we arrived. The floors were dirty, mold in...

How much nicer could a restaurant or a hotel be? Cozy and welcoming, with a view by the ocean that cannot be beat, you will love it here -- whether dining (everything on the menu is terrific; kudos to the chef!) or staying here for a comfortable stay. My room overlooking the ocean was truly lovely and having a private...

We didn't stay here but we went here for a drink. We wanted to have lunch but when we noticed the prices, we decided against it. Food in Statia is hardly ever fresh, which is something you can take into account when deciding on price-quality-choices.

Shame about the pool it was not clean and we did not dare to get in. The room was great nice big room as was the...
