street, called 99 Steps, and you reach it by walking up steep
Government Hill. Hotel 1829 has provided lodgings for such
luminaries as King Carol of Rumania, Edna St. Vincent
Millay and the characters from Charlie's Angels. Recent res-
toration of the hotel rooms has preserved the original brick
ceilings, walls with coral and shells imbedded in them,
heavy wooden shutters and 200-year-old Moroccan tiles.
There are 17 rooms, each with double beds, sitting area,
small refrigerator and cable TV. The three suites are larger
and have canopied beds, separate sitting areas, dark mahog-
any walls and harbor views. The rooms around the small
pool are the least expensive since they have no view. All are
air-conditioned and some have ceiling fans as well.

This lovely country villa is high above town on Denmark
Hill. It was built in the 1950s by General Santa Ana of Mex-
ico and is an all-suite option (seven units). The guest rooms
are located in the estate's former library, its old wine cellar,
old kitchen, the pump house, and elsewhere. All units have
full kitchens, TV and ceiling fans. There are reminders of
Mexico throughout from the colorful tiles, the stonework
and the bold fabrics on the dark rattan furniture. There is a
pool and sundeck. You can walk into town, but a car would be
a plus.
