Please could somebody tell me if voltage boosters are available to buy on the island. I am looking to take 127v to 220/240v for european appliances.

The same transformers sold by Kooymans and Playa Trading which take 127 down to about 112V, will also take 127 to about 230V. Just have to change the settings.

A curiosity question: if the accomodations have the two voltage ranges (but are not using transformers to get the 230v) wouldn't the higher voltage be close to 254V, which might make european appliances run a little hot as well?

Be aware that electric clocks don't run on time because of fluctuations in Hertz, today 50H tomorrow 60H.I used to have that problem all the time on Bonaire. Just buy an old-fashion wind-up one.
