We are spending our last night at Fond Doux, and have very much enjoyed our stay here for the last 6 nights. The property is stunning, the cottages are beautiful ( we stayed in Cocoa Tree) that offers 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, a lovely veranda, gardens and stunning views. Each day when we have ventured out, we so look forward...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 8 January 2017

This is a small, intimate hotel. We stayed in the Avocado cottage with two large bedrooms, a kitchen, a living room and a fantastic porch. Lots of space for the money - great value! We had lots of privacy in a very lush setting. While the Fond Doux is not luxurious (the hotel compound is based on and incorporates a...

My husband and I stayed at Fond Doux February 9-12. We drove and were able to find it with no issues. The resort has a manned gate and the attendants were consistently very friendly. The employee who checked us in was probably the least friendly encounter we had our entire stay. Please let me be clear, she was not rude...

Some of the staff appeared not very friendly and welcoming. The hotel appeared breached. Access to our cabins were a very rocky and difficult coating. Price too high compared to the experience we got on site. Writing in the notification of the hotel that it was an active cacao plantation is not true in terms of our experience.

We loved being here for 5 nights, staying in Banana cottage. Our room was very comfortable, with a nice balcony with comfy chairs and a hammock. Each cottage is totally private - which is great. The breakfast is good with fruits grown on site and a decent range of hot food to choose from too. The evening menu is small...

If you love island wilderness, birds, bamboo, authentic food, the peaceful sound of the rainforest, hiking nature trails....and hate chain restaurants, loud beach concerts, condo towers and traffic....this spot is 100% worth it for you!!
