The Frangipani, Bequia

This historical hotel was built by a Bequia sea captain nearly 100 years ago, and guests can still stay in one of his family’s original rooms for as little as $55 per night. The hotel’s on-site bar (rated one of the Caribbean’s best) and its famous lime meringue pie make it a worthy place to while away a few days.
