When choosing our facility for the nights on Saba we stumbled upon El Momo. We were in for simple, charming, close to the shops and far away enough from the shops at the same time! We came from St Maarten, we were in for peace! We also wanted a warm shower and electricity. So.. El Momo!
When we booked we received a very honest story about what to expect. If that description didn't meet our needs, we were able to cancel it for free. That's what I call honest business.
El Momo is not perfect (like some people write), but it is really really charming. Who needs perfection in the rainforest? This is indeed kind of like camping. The owner helped us with everything and was always in for a amusing talk. The (clean) pool gave extra refreshment during the day, the always open 'honest-bar' (free to take a drink from the fridge and pay later) at night!
Beds were great! Full breakfast really satisfying. You get woken by the coq. We had nothing to complain about. Take the easy road, breath the island and slow down.
note: Saba is an expensive island in general! You find yourself going up and down the hills every day, unless you sit still all day. The walk to 'town' for shopping takes you about 10-15 min and it's fairly easy. For elderly people (65+), this might not be the best option for you! El Momo is only accessible via a stone chair. It is beautiful, but there is no need to visit again. To far away! ;-)
The flight to Saba is great!!!! We loved it! Forgot my new swimming pants at El Momo, but the owner came after me all the way to the airport. What a service! Thanks a lot...
