If you are planning a Grenadines charter starting or ending in St. Vincent, The Mariners Hotel is a great spot to relax and unwind before or after your charter.

This 20-room boutique hotel is located on the southern tip of St. Vincent, just a 10 minute taxi ride from the airport. It's conveniently close to the bareboat companies and to Young Island Cut, the anchorage used by crewed yachts. Crews can meet guests at the hotel's dock and take them by dinghy to the yacht anchored a short distance away.

Upon your arrival at the hotel, the friendly staff will greet you with a complimentary welcome punch and, if you have the time, they can arrange a variety of activities such as scuba diving and taxi tours. Island tours are very popular and include trips to Kingstown, with its beautiful cathedrals and churches built in the 1800's. At the Kingstown Market, you'll find a selection of fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, fish and local arts and crafts. A stroll through the 20 acre Botanical Gardens, founded in 1765, is a must.

At the Mariners, each room is air-conditioned with private bath and private balcony. All rooms have a tropical decor with king size beds, but you can request 2 twins if you prefer. Both types of rooms, superior and deluxe, have views of the ocean. The larger deluxe rooms have the best views and are closer to the water. Double occupancy prices range from $145-175 in the winter and $125-$155 in the summer. Amenities include free wireless internet, cable television and direct dial phones.

The French Verandah Restaurant, overlooking Villa Beach, offers outdoor beachfront dining where you will enjoy both classic and Creole French cuisine with friendly, personal service.

So, whether it's before or after your sail through The Grenadines, treat yourself to a night at the Mariners and enjoy a swim in their oceanside pool, or sip a cool, tropical drink at the Beach Bar or lounge.
