Saba Hotel - El Momo Resort Pros - relatively inexpensive (was booked through Sea Saba dive/hotel package) - awesome views of the island and ocean from the room decks - no worries about mosquitoes as the place was pretty high up on the mountain Cons - need to take MANY steep steps up to the resort and to the rooms,...

Nice, cozy, comfortable and clean. Andries and his staff found alternate transportation back to St Maarten last week after Winair cancelled my flight. Can't thank them enough for all the help they gave. A must stay. I'll be back next time when staying at Saba.

We had a wonderful four day stay at El Momo Cottages. The cottages are perched high up on the island with stunning views of the Caribbean and Mt Scenery. They are picturesque little cottages with good wi-fi and the bathrooms are nearby. Andreis and Eva are wonderful hosts and take pride in their establishment. Everything at El Momo is very...

If you like camping but would like just a few more ameneties, then El Momo is for you. Andreis & his wife are affable laid back folks. The pool was nicely maintained & the overlook hangout is perfect for chilling with your squad or chatting with world travellers.

We had the most relaxing and delightful week imaginable in Sunshine Cottage, perched high above the Caribbean Sea with stunning views of Mount Scenery and surrounding peaks and valleys in morning sun and golden sunsets. Hosts Andries and Eva were so warm and generous and our fellow guests made a happy little community. We had delicious breakfasts in the open...

Stayed in the highest cottage which had remarkable views over the sea. The view changed continuously with the weather and the time of day. The cottage itself is approached from the road by about 100 plus steps. About 60 of these back down to the honour bar and pool. The cottage consisted of a decent sized bedroom with mosquito net...

Although the accommodation is very simple, which I was expecting, the relaxing atmosphere and views are great. Breakfast on the terrace with the fantastic view was always a great start to the day. Andries is a mine of information about the island.

I had the pleasure of staying for two nights at Cricket Cottage in El Momo's, the least pricey of the cottages, in that you have a shared bathroom with another cottage. The steps to the top were a bit daunting at first, but the numbers counting you down and friendly hand painted signs helped ease the struggle! Andries, the owner,...

Hotel is located in good location, but the place is a disaster. We rented a room and the door literally would not shut all the way. (See attached pic) There were parts of window panel on the door missing, so someone could have easily reached in and unlocked the door. The window latch was also broken on the window next...

andries b, Owner at El Momo Cottages, responded to this review

On the photo you will see a DOOR KNOB. If you pull the door, turn the knob.... guess what... the door will close. Yes, there's a hook and an eye also, but that's not the only device. Door knobs are quite common devices used around the world. Please, do excuse my sarcasm... The missing glass panel will be replaced asap....

Peace - Nature - Silence. Nature lovers who enjoy priceless amenities of tropical flowers, palm trees and hammocks overlooking a deep blue sea and warm hospitality will find El Momo to be the perfect retreat. It's small, quiet, charming and a little "Robinson Crusoe like"; A little piece of paradise where time moves slowly and attention is paid to details. We have breathtaking sea views and fantastic ocean sunsets from October to March. ... more   less
