Some french friends recommended this hotel. We went over there during the rainy season and it was perfect. I never slept so well ! The food was awesome! Especially the "religieuse au chocolat" ! :) And the hotel grounds were impressive! Thanks a lot to this cute french couple who found their way!

“We booked the "family room" and it was great! Two bedrooms with full beds and then an anteroom with two additional twin beds. Would work great for a family of up to six.”
