Upon arriving, the greeting we got was less than stellar. It was pouring and we asked for assistance with our luggage. This was met with surprise, and we were told that normally they do not help with luggage. By the time our stuff made it to our room everything was soaked. The night desk man and the morning desk people... More

Unfortunately we arrived in a heavy downpour and after having had quite a bit of trouble finding the property, we checked in to find very half hearted staff on duty. I asked for a glass of water explaining I suffer from Migraines only to be denied water but told I could get a cocktail any the bar. I asked about... More

When I arrived and saw the location behind a road and Quick I was a little concerned. But once in the place is great. Spacious family duplex. Safe for kids. Wonderful pool. Not on the beach. Would need to drive or walk to beach but enjoyed the pool all day anyway. Nice staff. Good lunch. All round a good choice... More

Small apartment type of accomodation. The duplex has 1 room upstairs with a small tv room and kitchenette downstairs. Photos on their website do not reflect the actual size. This is not in the city centre and a car is needed to move from there. Staff is helpful but slow.

It was a pleasant stay as no one bothered us and hotel staff was nice :) We rented cars from Hertz (Dacia Duster - totally worth the money) and had a blast driving around the island! Very nice and interesting still undiscovered island which seemed very prosperous and everyone was nice to everyone, would return!

Good value, good amenities however a little dated and out of the way. It is about a 20 minute walk to restaurants or there is a courtesy bus if you go to "partner" restaurants. Not a big deal but we thought it was closer when booking. The room itself was a little dated but still comfortable enough for the price.... More

We stayed here for 3 nights on our honeymoon. All the rooms have a little kitchenette which we found was great, little terrace overlooked the pool and the setting was really peaceful. You really need a car to get into St Gilles, but can walk to the beach at Boucan Canot. Everything closed down on Sunday and Monday night whilst... More

This place has lousy location next to a big road and a chain hamburger restaurant. No restaurant at the hotel. Half hour walk to nearest decent restaurants (in St Gilles or Boucan Canot). Rooms are old and seriously ugly. Some have a nice view, but most don't. They are very suspicious, you have to count every little spoon or glass... More

Stayed here for two nights in November 2012 on our honeymoon. Hotel is out of town itself and we were advised by staff that taxi's were scarce and not very reliable (even when booked).
