    “Memories were made of this….” My first night in, I was happy at 1829. In the halcyon days, I was a frequent visitor to its lively bar and fine dining restaurant. Ahhh, those mango soufflés were perfection, the music, too, with ladies in long dresses and men in tropical whites. B&W pics of this era line the interior stone walls. The charismatic owner, Baron Vernon Ball, ex-fighter pilot, was the world backgammon champion in 1976. Vernon lives in the States now, but his son and daughter oversee the hotel.
    1829 remains a glorious landmark of the colonial era, built by a Frenchman, who was in shipping. The stonework was ship’s ballast, the wooden ceilings constructed like a ship.
    My simple guestroom (#10), was three flights up stone steps, past the amber waterfall, and overlooked the petite pool. It was spacious, (some are not) and you hear nothing.
    I passed the evening at the bar reminiscing to Doug, the hip barkeep’, after the manager, Wade, (both expats’), made sure that I needed naught. What with the mellow music, the camaraderie, the 151 pina coladas, I felt like I was 20-something all over again.

Description

A landmark hotel full of antiques, history and Caribbean colonial charm, it houses 15 hotel rooms, a full-service bar, a pool, the Caribbean amber museum and unique two-story, amber waterfall, with an art gallery anticipated. Charming elements include the Moroccan tiles and Tiffany window. It is on the historical walking tour. The room overlooking the pool, #10 is the largest and most commodious. The smaller rooms have lower rates. There are TVs, A/C, but no phones. Continental breakfast is complimentary and can be taken out on the terrace. WiFi is free also and is available in the bar and on the terrace. Hotel guests can participate in the history tour without charge. Staff and management are ultimately helpful.
