    For what it is, El Momo is great. One must be aware, however, that this is a very rustic place to stay. The cottages are basic cabins, there's no climate control (Saba is humid!), and there's not as much privacy as some people might like. The bathroom is outside of the cabin. You will be using a sink/vanity that is essentially outdoors although sheltered by plants. The toilet and shower are in an outhouse. The toilet is composting and the shower pressure was extremely low and the temperature never got warm. That being said, for all it's rusticity, everything was surprisingly clean and the wifi worked excellently! The whole experience is bordering on camping, but it had it's charm. There is a small pool and an honesty (honor system) bar. Each cottage even has a rustic patio with great views of the sea. The Dutch couple that runs El Momo is super friendly and helpful. I was picked up from the ferry without even requesting it, and I was given a ride to the dive shop when I checked out. Something else to be aware of is there are a LOT of steps up to El Momo and also to each cottage. You will have to haul your luggage up these steep narrow concrete steps. There are not many railings. All in all a really positive rustic experience!

    Care to make simple cabins welcoming, such as chalk-board greeting and tropic flower. The scene, and owners, are ultra casual. This property is not for the faint on breath, given the somewhat irregular 70+ plus steps from roadway to the pool and office. Then there are additional steps to individual cabins, challenging again in some cases. Due to a cancellation, I was able to occupy the Turtle cabin, a bargain and must-do upgrade at only $20 additional. The unit has a generous projecting deck with a view to die for. Also a tidy kitchen. The view overall is spectacular. El Momo serves breakfast, but other meals mean a (very) strenuous walk into Westwardside. (There is a small guest refrigerator but no microwave.) Several times I was offered a ride uphill by a generous driver who saw my huffing and puffing. After one week, the hike seemed shorter, and the entry stairway less steep. Perhaps this replaces an exercise room.

  • 2.0.Poor

    QUITE UNFORTUNATE- DIDNT LIKE THE PLACE

    We were not aware that the toilets were outdoors. It was not specified in the details. For those with bad knees, this is not the place for you seeing that we have to climb 92 steps to get to our rooms. I asked for a refund or even a 50% refund, but they refused to meet me in the middle. We left our first night.

    Accueil excellent, belle vue vers la mer mais l'ensemble du cottage mériterait une bonne rénovation...

    Het El momo hotel is een ecology lodge.Saba is een EXTREEM BERGACHTIG EILAND.Om het hotel te bereiken moet men wat trappen lopen. De Nederlands sprekenende uitbaters zijn zeer vriendelijk en goed geïnformeerd overde gang van zaken.Het hotel is op loopafstand van Windwardside.Daar is een postkantoor,bank,een supermarkt en wat eetgelegenheden. Het eiland heeft minder geleden van de typhoon Irma (Sept 2017) dan bijv. Sint Maarten.Voor vliegtuig liefhebbers:De landingsbaan is 400 meter,en de kortste op de wereld.WINAIR landt daar met een Twin Otter.Ze hebben fantastische STOL(short take off en Landing)piloten.Er is een Medische Universiteit op het eiland,voor het geval U langer wil blijven en een artsen studie wilt beginnen.
