Bananaquit - Reader Reports & Opinion
Delisa Noel from Trinidad visited in August 2014 and awarded
Stayed at Bananaquit for one night in the studio apartment . The place was very clean even the fridge and inside the microwave. Caroline was very helpful and accommodating to my family ensuring that we were made very comfortable even though we were only spending one night. thank you Caroline and daughter for getting our room ready when the housekeeper could not come out on Sunday 24th July 2014. The only draw back is that the place needs to be updated especially the bathroom.

The reviews then were ok, it's what enticed me to book, accompanied by the price.
I stayed there twice in 1 trip. The 1st time we had a loft for a few nights, comfortable, despite the meagre kitchen utensils, and water running out leaving me with soap on my skin, waiting some 10mins for back up supply. Visited some family and returned to a downstairs apt.
There were 2 single beds which we gave to our young children. Plus a pull out sofa bed which my husband and i shared. Initially,it appeared fine, but the following day i had to take painkillers for the pain inflicted. After the 2nd and last night, in the morning, i walked crunched, bent over, muscle relaxants weren't even kicking in.
The staff was pleasant and accommodating, however, I'll not return nor recommend.

My family of 3 stayed at Bananquit for 17 nights. We really enjoyd the place. We liked the location and the green garden with a very nice place for "liming" avalible for all guests. There was the only place you could use the WiFi, witch was a big minus, but it looks like every hotel/apartment has that problem. Our apartment was not really good for cooking our own food, so if you plan to cook home every day, make sure you got a working stove. Carolyn did everything to help everyone, always a happy face.
The apartments was very nice and clean. Compered to other apartments and hotel in the same area, this was a very nice place and with good service.
I can really recommend this place from our experience, and we will stay here next time as well

I had a wonderful stay at Bananaquit and would recommend this establishment to anyone seeking a home away from home. The staff was friendly and approachable, they bent over backwards to accommodate request and ensure guests were comfortable.

My husband and I just returned from from our weekend stay at the Bananaquit, before our arrival at the hotel we received a call to re-confirm our accommodation, upon our arrival we were greeted by a very Cheerful Carolyn... who was extremely hospitable, professional, efficient and pro-active in the manner in which she conducted business; which to us is a major plus with regard to excellent customer service,it did set the tone from the initial time of our stay there & made it waaay worth the decision in such short notice....since taking time off for this weekend was intended to be a memorable one. There was a verrry minor technical hiccup which she pointed out upon our arrival and was handled with prompt effect.
The layout of the surroundings and apartment was very tasteful, (most importantly)-clean & cosy the ambiance outside the apartment at night was very peaceful, more beautiful & warm e.g with the colourful lights which decorated the tree trunk followed by the park benches underneath; another plus for the effort.
Location is xtremely convenient to Storbay beach, food outlets and most importantly really! five min. walk to the airport.Which was exactly what we needed.
Our stay there was wonderful & we would most def. consider adding Bananaquit Hotel as one of our fav. go to hide aways..lol which is verry few on our list..and will most certainly recomm. to our friends, family or business colleagues.
Thank you Carolyn!do remain as sweet as you are & keep up the good work...
