How to Get There
Very nice property in the area of Spring. The cottage was very nice - there were only two of us but the cottage slept four but extra room set up in the decor for kids so may be a little strange for couples. Property was very clean and the staff was friendly , Nice bar with happy hour. Restaurant was nice and many visitors to the island come here for lunches. We did not eat here as we went to many of the music festival events.
Was a little disappointed when at the end when checking out we found out breakfast was included and we never had breakfast......
Had the swedish massage with Monique and have to recommend it to everyone looking for a relaxing and renewing experience! Very professional and friendly service and she is a highly experienced masseuse. Prices are appealing as well!
We purchased the two centre holiday at The Firefly Plantation Bequia and Firefly Mustique.
The location and surrounding plantation gardens were stunning. After spending a couple of days down on Lower Bay, not exactly manic, it was a real joy to spend a further 3 nights up in the Plantation location. Firefly is located a short walk from Spring Bay and only a 25 minute walk into Port Elizabeth. But if you want to just indulge for a couple of days, it’s very difficult to tear yourself away from the Plantation. It has a great pool area, croquet lawn and a novel 6 hole cross country golf course. We had a wonderfully spacious room with a terrace set up high above the bar restaurant building. The big plus was Rodney the Maitre D. Always cheerful, extremely organised and helpful. We had an unforgettable experience before we moved onto Firefly Mustique. Thank you Rodney and your colleagues.
We took advantage of the Sunday curry lunch at this hotel with a group of friends. We also booked their plantation tour and brought our swimsuits to enjoy the pool also. So we ended up having a lovely day out.
This hotel is in a different league to any others we stayed in during our month in the Grenadine Islands. The design and decor is beautiful. The best thing for me was that service from all staff was outstanding. The food was also excellent. The ocean views were lovely to admire from afar.
If budget is not a concern, it would be beautiful to stay here. Downsides would be it is not on or near any beach. It would be very much a hotel holiday rather than feeling you were experiencing the island. You would need to hire a car or plan to use taxis a lot.
If you are visiting Bequia, I would definitely take advantage of the Sunday curry lunch offer. Its great value.
This was my first time to the Caribbean - for a friend’s birthday and I’m glad we stayed on Bequia and at the Firefly particularly.
Transfer from the tiny Bequia Airport was arranged by the hotel. Gunno, our driver and his friendly attitude augured well for the laidback feel the island has. It's not often you pick up the hotel cook en route to your hotel (and a very good cook at that, but I’ll come to food later).
On arrival, we were greeted with refreshing Virgin Coladas by Rodney, the hotel manager, and his very welcoming team.
The very spacious room has an unmistakably homely feel - with a king- sized four poster bed replete with a mosquito net, a huge patio terrace overlooking the plantation an beautiful walk-in showers. All were elegantly and comfortably designed. Cleaning was to the highest standard. The luxury bed linen was changed daily and as in any reputable 5 star hotel, a turndown service was performed nightly.
We went for the full board option and the hotel’s restaurant offers an à la carte menu. I only eat halal but there was always a fish option.
On the first morning we ordered the West Indian Breakfast - a wonderful discovery: salted fritters, plantain and bakes! The breakfast menu also included omelettes, pancakes served with guava syrup, French toast served with the most delicious grapefruit marmalade, granola with yogurt. Each breakfast was preceded by a beautifully presented exotic fruit platter served by the lovely Ronika.
For lunches and dinners, organic chicken, beef and fish were offered in a variety of tasty local styles.
We were the only guests staying at the hotel this time of year but this didn’t bother us as there were expats and other tourists who came for meals at the restaurant.
The hotel is set in a vast old plantation where everything is kept immaculately.
We visited the stunning Princess Margaret Beach on several occasions. Whilst we sometimes took taxi, Port Elizabeth is only about a 30 min walk away through the lush green vegetation.
This is an impeccably run boutique hotel, where the service is personalised. Do not expect noisy evening entertainment or hordes of guests. It's a peaceful place with serene scenery.
Thank you to Rodney, Donovan, Ronika...and all the other staff for a genuinely memorable holiday. We do hope to return one day.
