Perfect especially if you want to meditate
Awesome! at first I thought it will be uncomfortable due it is all the way up in the mountains surrounded by plants and insects. I was surprised no musquitos or what so ever during the night. Without air conditioning but each room has a ventilator and is pretty chill in the night hours since Saba is surrounded by plants and the ECO systems worked good!! I recommend this place!

This is one of the best eco-lodges I've stayed in. First, don't let the stairs scare you off: if you're in moderately decent shape, the climb is not at all bad. After making your way up, you arrive at a lovely pool deck: the pool is fed with rainwater collected from the property. The water is very soft, chlorine-free, and so refreshing after a day of hiking and exploring Saba. Andries, the owner, is incredibly friendly and helpful: he knows the island in and out and can point you to variety of restaurants, things to do, etc. The simple but clean dining area has an amazing view overlooking the ocean: if you're lucky, you can grab a beer or glass of wine from the honor bar and catch the sunset from there. I stayed in the Lizard Room, a suite of four separate spaces: the room itself, a covered outdoor sink, a small room with a shower and toilet, and a private deck also overlooking the ocean. The room was simple but very comfortable: between a fan and the elevation, there was no real need for air conditioning. Though there's such a seamless blending of indoor and outdoor space, everything is immaculate and well cared for. In terms of location, El Momo is only about a ten minute walk from the heart of Windward Side, where you can dine, shop, and begin your hike up Mt. Scenery. I would gladly return on a future visit.

Cottages in paradise
The owners are a lovely couple who go out of their way to make you comfortable and welcome...super knowledgeable of Saba...cottages are beautiful. It is a natural setting and does have stairs, but then again nothing on Saba is flat...views are worth any walk, pool is lovely, about 10 minutes to town on foot...loved El Momo

The cottages are beautiful and quaint. The pool was also really nice. It’s a bit of a trek to get up but it’s worth it.

For what it is, El Momo is great. One must be aware, however, that this is a very rustic place to stay. The cottages are basic cabins, there's no climate control (Saba is humid!), and there's not as much privacy as some people might like. The bathroom is outside of the cabin. You will be using a sink/vanity that is essentially outdoors although sheltered by plants. The toilet and shower are in an outhouse. The toilet is composting and the shower pressure was extremely low and the temperature never got warm. That being said, for all it's rusticity, everything was surprisingly clean and the wifi worked excellently! The whole experience is bordering on camping, but it had it's charm. There is a small pool and an honesty (honor system) bar. Each cottage even has a rustic patio with great views of the sea. The Dutch couple that runs El Momo is super friendly and helpful. I was picked up from the ferry without even requesting it, and I was given a ride to the dive shop when I checked out. Something else to be aware of is there are a LOT of steps up to El Momo and also to each cottage. You will have to haul your luggage up these steep narrow concrete steps. There are not many railings. All in all a really positive rustic experience!

Care to make simple cabins welcoming, such as chalk-board greeting and tropic flower. The scene, and owners, are ultra casual. This property is not for the faint on breath, given the somewhat irregular 70+ plus steps from roadway to the pool and office. Then there are additional steps to individual cabins, challenging again in some cases. Due to a cancellation, I was able to occupy the Turtle cabin, a bargain and must-do upgrade at only $20 additional. The unit has a generous projecting deck with a view to die for. Also a tidy kitchen. The view overall is spectacular. El Momo serves breakfast, but other meals mean a (very) strenuous walk into Westwardside. (There is a small guest refrigerator but no microwave.) Several times I was offered a ride uphill by a generous driver who saw my huffing and puffing. After one week, the hike seemed shorter, and the entry stairway less steep. Perhaps this replaces an exercise room.
