We are leaving for St Martin at the end of this week.
Our preferred vacation involves Caribbean beaches, sun, good food, alcohol, etc. The dead last least important variable to us is where we sleep. Each day we awaken with the sun, wake/bake, use the facilities, then head for a beach, grabbing breakfast on the way.
We return to our rooms after dining/drinking/dancing and collapse in bed for a few hours sleep, only to restart the cycle at sunrise.
Instead of spending money on a nice place to stay, we shift that pile of cash to the food/drinks pile.
My gf and I agree 100% on this, and so we constantly are on the lookout for a cheap place to sleep. Our past few trips we stayed at The Royal Turtle Inn, located right by the airport, and a real deal. They closed down recently.
This year while on the island I’ve convinced my gf to stop and check out Jeffries’ Auto-parts and Fantastic Guesthouse, rooms located above an auto parts store in Marigot. Next door is a bar owned by a family with the last name Skanky. Of course, the sign reads Skanky Bar. Ambiance!!!
So, anyone else willing to sleep cheap?
