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...

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....

For those seeking the simple life and peace and quiet this place is heaven. Breakfast was simple and lovely and the view was possibly the best view I have ever had for breakfast. Easy walk into Windwardside for plenty of dinner time options.

My wife and I stayed one night in a cottage at El Momo's. We took the first flight over from St. Martin on a Tuesday and took the last flight out Wednesday. Our two days on Saba was the highlight of our 10 day trip which included a week stay in St. Martin and 3 days in Anguilla. These are...

We stayed three nights in the Lizard Cottage at El Momo. The room was very nice and the mosquito nets were much appreciated. Andries is a lovely host and the breakfast each morning was good. Definitely the best choice for those not looking to break the bank; shared bathroom cottages are the best deal. A few notes of caution which...

You have to work for your view. its up the stairs. but its worth it. nice swimming pool. I guess the only thing that made my rating "avergage" and not "very good" was the shower and toilets, which in my case was not so comfertable.

This is the perfect place to stay if you want a peaceful, scenic stay in the beautiful nature of Saba. Also great for traveling solo. This is not the place to stay if you want the services and amenities of a fancy hotel or resort. Be prepared to hike up a flight of stairs to get here. Rest assured that...

We stayed here for 4 nights in one of the budget cottages with a shared bathroom. The cottage was really nice with two beds, mosquito net, towels and a shelf to put your clothes and other stuff on. Very well maintained, really quiet, a very nice pool with an amazing view!! The owner of the place is absolutely fantastic, and...

It's hard to describe the most picturesque place I've ever been. My girlfriend and I stayed in the Cottage in the Sky and it felt like living in a cloud at the top of the world. Magical. If the setting wasn't perfect enough, the owners were incredibly friendly and accommodating. One of the best parts was being served a home-cooked...

El Momo is amazing. At almost the top of Saba island, you'll find tranquility, peace, clouds and clouds. Yes, the steps (60!) to the office seem daunting, and if you choose to stay at cottage in the sky (60 more) you might need a beer break at the honor bar, but what this place lacks in horizontal consistency it makes...

Wonderful, rustic, romantic accommodation. Andreis is a good host with charming stories and great recommendations. Cottage in the Sky was romantic and secluded, although be aware of the stairs! Highly advise you use a backpack rather than traditional luggage while visiting Saba, but particularly at this hotel. The pool was terrific and the views are better here than any other...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
