"Historic Hotel with a Great Location"
We spent four nights at the Old Gin House during our stay on Statia. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are a bit dated. However, they were remodeling some rooms during our stay, so who knows what the remodeled rooms will look like. We could glimpse the sea from our windows, which was fine since we didn't spend much time in the room anyway. The location is great. It's in Lower Town, so you will have to walk up Bay Path to get to the town, but it's a three minute walk (up hill). Afterwards you are smack in the middle of town and next to Fort Oranje. If you want to eat, but don't feel like going up to the town, you can try the hotel's restaurant, right on the beach front, or take a short walk towards the harbor and try Blue Bead Restaurant. If you are into diving two dive shops are close by. The closest one is Scubaqua (which we used. It's great). We enjoyed staying at the Old Gin House. But it is a bit more expensive than other options on the island. If you choose to stay here you'll get a great location, friendly service and a chance to stay at a beautiful historical location.
"Repeat Visitor to The Old Gin House"
For the second year in a row, we chose St. Eustatius over the rest of the Caribbean for diving and we chose The Old Gin House for our accommodations. The same familiar faces from the previous year were there--Helma and Francesca who work at the restaurant, and Marleese and Siebolt, the proprietors, remembered us and treated us like royalty. Marisol, the general manager, is one of the most accommodating persons you will meet---plus she has an incredible sense of fun. The Old Gin House, once again, did not disappoint. The old world charm of The Old Gin House is nearly intoxicating. The rooms are homey with antique chests and desks that all lock with a brass key. Once again, at least for the first six days of our stay, we awakened to the sun rising over the Caribbean. For the last four days, we moved to a garden suite that was almost as charming. (Because we waited until so late to book our trip, the ocean front room was only available for the first six nights.) The sound of waves rocked us to sleep at night. And most evenings, the sunsets were dazzling. The only change we noted was that instead of offering a breakfast buffet, this year a continental breakfast consisting of a bread basket of croissants and baguettes, cheese, deli ham, and fruit swirled yogurt was served along with tea or coffee, a choice of juices, and your choice of eggs and bacon or sausage, omelet and bacon or sausage, or cereal. I liked it much better this way. Helma served us every day we were there and she is a jewel. During breakfast or any meal, we could look out over the bay while taking in the stone remains of buildings that flanked the harbor during the islandâ€™s â€œgolden era.â€ Often, we shared our space with chickens and small island lizards, but that only added to the charm. Every meal at The Old Gin House is delicious and sometimes even memorable. The Old Gin House Cheeseburger and fries are as perfect as it gets after a morning of diving. Served with a cold beer or iced tea, you cannot go wrong with this choice. Iâ€™m not sure Iâ€™ve ever had a cheeseburger in America that tastes better. Dinners are exquisite. Enjoy a signature cocktail --- Caribbean Breeze, Mai Tai, or any connection of your choice while gazing out at a dazzling sunset. Do this on the seafront in comfortable overstuffed couches, loveseats and chairs. For dinner, I can highly recommend the shrimp pasta, Oriental beef, salmon or steak. Everything on the menu is excellent. And make sure to save room for the apple pie for dessert. I am still thinking about that. The Old Gin House is a combination of many things---history, beautiful surroundings, delicious meals and first-class service. If you are diving on Statia, it is extremely convenient and always welcoming. We are booking again for next year.
"A historic and charming seaside place to stay, very close to dive shop."
We stayed at The Old Gin House in March with a group of 10. My husband and I stayed in one of the oceanfront master suites with a full sitting room/den area and overlooking the ocean. There was a good sized refrigerator in the room which allowed us to store drinks and some small snacks. Air conditioning was good, which is important to my other half, and views were wonderful. Staff very accommodating when we needed something, and I believe they are in process of renovating some more rooms. I had little to complain about, but.... in our room, which was front room, 303, there were just sheer draperies in the sitting room, which overlooked the restaurant and bar area. I would have liked to have the option of darker drapes on the side portion that looked out to the crowd, as privacy was a little limited in this particular suite. And in the next room, the bedroom, the only drapes there were the heavy kind.... I would have liked the sheers to be in THIS room, as it would have been nice to see the daylight and have the option of both drapes in both rooms. Both rooms opened out to fairly private walkway with a couple of chairs which was nice to enjoy the sunset and dry out a swimsuit. The other thing I would have liked is more fresh water to drink. They provide you with two bottles of water every day, but as a group of divers, we always feel the need for more, as it is imperative to be well hydrated. The Dive Shop next door had a large fresh water container, similar to ones I see in office buildings, and you can fill up your own bottle or container,and we would have liked that, as it can be expensive, (not to say bad for the environment), to have so many plastic water bottles around. This should be an easy fix in my opinion. Overall, a very nice place, with just a few quirks, and I think they are working to make your stay good. The restaurant even made a birthday cake for my husband one night and it was very tasty and well done with sparklers.
"The Old Gin House"
There are some really nice rooms at the Gin House and some very needy rooms. Choose wisely. Management says they are working to upgrade the older rooms. The food at the Gin House is superb although a bit pricey even for the islands. Management should put a 5 Gallon jug of water in each room! CoCo View has been doing that for a decade. Say no more. An added bonus is that the Old Gin House is just a few steps away from the dive shop. Management and staff are warm, friendly and very helpful.
"Average dive trip hotel"
Like most scuba, fishing or hunting lodges, this hotel is about the location and convenience. The staff is friendly and the property is clean. The location is perfect. The sleep quality is poor. Important note: there are 3 ocean front suites that are very nice and are 4 or more stars. This review applies to the rooms in the back building. The window does not have glass so it is hard to sleep from all the noise. The roosters start about 3 AM, along with birds and tree frogs. One of our mattresses was ruined and was not replaced after complaining to management.
