Saba Deep
« on: July 23, 2008, 01:55:56 UTC »
We dove the last two Christmas holidays with Saba Deep and really enjoyed diving with them.  However, I know they recently changed ownership and would appreciate comments from anyone who has been diving with them recently.  Last year we stayed at the Gatehouse but we are considering staying at Juliana's this year.  Again I would appreciate input from anyone with recent experience with this hotel.

Dove with them in April and they're fine. Very helpful with reservations at restaurants, taxis, the ferry etc. Good DM's. Still no camera facilities on the boats. Or heads.

As far as the hotels are concerned, I'd skip them and rent a villa. We stayed at Flamboyant Cottage. Saba Deep stocked the fridge for us before we arrived (good for first night, given Winn Air). We ate lunch there by the small pool and had a view of the sea & islands. The only hassle was walking back from the restaurants after dinner. SD will pick you up in the morning.

Just came back from Saba last week and stayed at Julianna's.  Had a great time the only thing we regret was not spending more time then 3 days there...though we got a chance to dive some of the other islands as well.  Julianna's is a great hotel and was clean!  Would highly recommend it...can't and won't go wrong.  Dove with Sea Saba and were very professional.  The people truly give you the feeling that they too are enjoying what they do and not doing it just for the dollars!

Yes, I loved my week at Julianna's - what a great place, great diving, and great people.  I dive a lot, too.  I think this is one of the top places in the Caribbean.  I dive with Sea Saba.

Hi smoore,

Sea Saba (http://www.seasaba.com/) remains a winner.

I have always much enjoyed Juliana's (http://www.julianas-hotel.com/).

A rustic but fun & serene place that is a great value is El Momo Cottages (http://www.elmomo.info/index_en.htm) (website may take a while to load).

Have fun.
