A huge room with ocean view in a big and spacious resort along the beautiful and windy beach of bel ombre. We appreciated the food, especially the breakfast and we found it very relaxing to get sunbeds and tables at any hour of the day we never felt it was crowdy. Service is smooth and friendly. The hotel could need... More

Horrible service. Mediocre food. We were ignored the majority of our time there. The salads were brown and obviously old, and then they didn't even bring everybody's meal out right away. One of us didn't get our food until everybody else was entirely done. Do yourself a favor and stay away from here. Just a couple doors over is a... More

Atmosphere was wonderful! Staff was very good! We usually eat there at least 5 times a summer! Wednesday's wine is half price. Food is great and baked potatoes are huge!
