Amazing Place To Visit.
If you appreciate exclusivity, and authenticity in Paradise this is a must go. The journey to Port Morgan was an adventure. Family of 7, 4 children under 10 and 3 adults. The boat ride was longer due to one motor working, what would take 30min took 1 hour, not good when traveling with children. The ride back was way better 😋. . Check-in was easy. Just call and give your name upon arriving to Les Cayes, boat comes and picks you up. Upon arriving your showed around, given a map, sent to your room asked what you'd like for lunch and dinner. Salt water pool and beach amazing with amazing views. Food was delicious each and every time. Only Breakfast is included. We visited Abaka Bay, Beautiful, however we felt the waves were a bit aggressive for the children and we're happy with choosing Port Morgan which is better accommodating for children, had a pool and calmer smaller beach nook. Our children loved the place and fell in love with Haiti as we did too. The rooms were clean, comfortable. Clean water, warm water if you choose, air conditioning, wifi, fridge, microwave. The beds had nets and we're comfortable. We had a few critter visitors like grasshopper, and a 🐸 which we guided out of the washroom to outside. Listen your on a tropical island. We will be going back again. We met the owner who was very nice and friendly. Staff was very good, the people are so friendly. We stayed two night 3 days. I highly recommend Port Morgan.
Port Morgan Hotel overlooks a beautiful bay - Baie a Feret, which is an old pirate base; Henry Morgan used to stay here. The Hotel is an absolute oasis; very laid back, lovely pool, and horses (not cows) roamed around the beautiful gardens. I loved the breakfast – eggs, toast, pancakes, juice, coffee.
Not sure where to begin. This adventure started with an approximately 40-45 minute boat ride. Upon arriving to the island of île la Vache you are immediately transported to a honeymooners paradise.
Pro: the room was large and clean. Really nice mosquito netting neatly tucked under the mattress of the very comfortable bed.
Bathroom reminded me that this is essentially a beach house. If you get up to pee in the middle of the night you might meet some critters but they seem harmless.
NO TV... and it wasn't missed! Who needs a TV when you have beautiful views, calm breeze and peace right outside on the back patio.
Each room (at least from what I can see) has 2 reclining chairs and a table on the back patio area. Perfect for playing cards, dominos, drinking a Prestige and just relaxing.
The beach is your backyard but if you want to go to the pool be prepared to luxuriate in the salt water pool which still provides an amazing view of the ocean.
All visitors respected each other's space and everyone was pleasant and polite to each other.
You can take a walk off the property if you wish to explore and meet with the locals. They are also very polite. You may meet a goat or 2 along the way.
Con: restaurant choices were a little limited especially since I was traveling with a little picky eater (my 10 year old) but she managed and didn't complain.
Staff also very nice but I don't think I saw much of them... didn't need them.
This was such a beautiful place to be... be prepared to be low key, low maintenance, and relaxed! Will definitely go back!!!!
The Port Morgan hotel dominates the bay of cacor. The swimming pool is more undeniable one. The frame is magnificent. Do not look for a hotel equivalent to Mariott but rather for a comfortable hotel which disorients us.
The suite room dislocates would deserve to have a price close to a normal room. The view to her alone does not deserve a big gap especially as since the hurricane Matthew you have neither TV nor WiFi.The bed is comfortable, the clean(appropriate) and maintained places. You have no card of menus but a pleasant local hostess who asks you to make a choice between two menus. the breakfast by including the meals, the service is very good but remind you that you are on an island to rest then do not be too much requiring and take advantage of this bucolique trip.
This place is amazing. A perfect setting, on a knoll between the open ocean, with the welcoming fresh easterly wind keeping you drier and not so hot, and on the other side a beautiful sheltered harbour, favorite of sailors, and a small village. Great beach on the ocean side, with welcome shade of the palms if you desire. There are horses grazing all around, keeping the lawn mowed.
The staff is incredibly friendly and supportive, and the service is absolutely excellent. I had an amazing room (deluxe version), with a private balcony overlooking the sea, excellent hot and cold water, great water pressure, AirCon if you want it, fans, and consistent supply of electricity from their own generators (located far out of earshot). The room is kept incredibly clean by the staff.
Perhaps the most remarkable aspect of Port Morgan is the cuisine. Excellent multi-course meals, great tasting, fresh food, great desserts, all served in the beautifully appointed dining area on top of the hill, and overlooking the pool. Unlimited supply of good fresh drinking water, and you can eat all the food, including salads, etc, with no worries of getting sick. Kitchen far exceeds any others I have seen in Haiti, or most developing countries.
I know it sounds like I was paid or bribed to write this, but that is not the case. I have been many places in the Caribbean, and this is the best. I actually like their beach and setting better than any others, including Negril's 7 mile beach.
One caveat: this is a quiet, peaceful place. Great for a retreat, and if you like to read or write, or visit with the locals. You can also meet Joe, and arrange for a sailboat ride on one of the local wooden sailboats that the fishermen use, built right on the beach. You can swim or snorkel, and walk around the island. But if you want lots of activities, and lots of other people, and a resort atmosphere, go elsewhere.
I doubt there is any other place in Haiti even half as good as Port Morgan. I did walk over to Abaca Bay, and although their open crescent beach looks great in photos, they are on the downwind side of the island, so no breeze, and on the flats between the Mangrove swamps and the sea. I would not want to be there. And I prefer beaches with some shade. There are mosquitos on the island that come out briefly around dusk, and if you have a good breeze, they are not much of an issue.
I hope to return to Port Morgan. I had a great deal on price, because of the off-season they had a special deal going that included all meals. But even at a higher price I would return. After doing volunteer work on the mainland, this was a great respite.
It is not as easy to get there as many places in the Caribbean. You can fly into Port au Prince, and take an airconditioned bus to Les Cayes, and Port Morgan will arrange to pick you up at the dock in Les Cayes with their boat. There is an airport in Les Cayes, but you would have to pay a lot for a charter flight, as at this time I believe there is no scheduled air service.
