Great view! We stayed in a studio at Estate Concordia for the first 5 days of our trip at the end of May. We had a full ocean view studio, which is definitely nicer than the partial ocean view. The studio was spacious with a kitchen and a dining table with 4 chairs next to kitchen. The kitchen has limited pots, pans, cooking utensils, etc, so I wouldnít want to attempt to cook a gourmet meal, but it was more than adequate for us to fix breakfast and simple meals. Had a blender, microwave and regular sized fridge. The bedroom area was within the same room, but to the side in its own area. The 2 walls facing the water had screens and louvers for air flow. The screens were nice for fresh air, but we did have to run the ceiling fan over the bed all night to keep it a comfortable temperature. It was a bit warm and muggy when we were there.
The bathroom was decent sized and the whole place was clean. The wrap-around deck on 2 sides had a wonderful sweeping view of Salt Pond, Ramís Head, Drunk Bay and beyond. The deck was good-sized with plenty of room for drying out our snorkel gear in the afternoons. It had a table and chairs where we ate breakfast every morning, enjoying the view and the birds singing. The deck was shaded and comfortable in the morning. I donít like small, cramped studios and this place was roomy enough for us.
The pool area was nice, but the pool water was dark and cloudy. The sides of the pool did not look too clean either. People were using it every day we were there, but we did not use it.
Potential downsides for some people. We loved this place, BUT - there are definitely a LOT of stairs to get around. If you canít or donít like to climb stairs, do NOT stay here. There is no one to help with your luggage, so you are on your own. We are in fairly good shape and it did not bother us, but it would be challenging for some people. There is no maid service, but that is fine with us. There is no air-conditioning in the units, but there was a big floor fan that we used one night for additional air flow.
We didnít look into the eco-tents, but the ones closer to Ramís Head had a great breeze (better than in our unit) and a spectacular view overlooking Ramsís Head and out to sea. I highly recommend Estate Concordia if you like this type of accommodation (its not a villa) and we would stay there again.
