My husband and I spent five days at AfroChic last month. They nearly had to drag us out of there. We didn't want to leave. We were pampered from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. Stephan, Zipporah and the staff are amazing. The design and decor in this small, boutique hotel are gorgeous. We were in the Punda Milia (zebra) suite. It was huge and plush, complete with california king bed (it felt like my husband was clean on the other side of the room), a built in chaise lounge/day bed, gigantic bathroom with jacuzzi tub, plus a large sunroom with a huge day bed and two comfortable overstuffed chairs. A great thing about this hotel is the intricate, hand-carved furniture and fittings. It's all so beautiful that I found myself wondering how I could carry it home with me. We had a huge balcony overlooking the pool and the ocean. It was a great place to relax in the morning.
Let's talk about the food. They let you choose what you want to eat, when you want to eat it, and where you want to eat it. You want tuna carpaccio, avocado salad, sesame crusted snapper with vegetables, and a chocolate brownie, poolside at 1:30pm. No problem. The food selection is a wonderful. I tried to eat something different for every meal. But I did return to the tuna carpaccio and cashew icecream on several occassions. They were just that good. The kitchen staff was even kind enough to pack us fresh fruits and baked breads for our trip home, as we had to depart at 3am.
The beach is calm and warm. We hung out in the water for hours (until the tide retreated so far that you could walk out 700 yards or more before touching water). We spent the day reading, relaxing, and napping on AfroChic's huge swing beds by the beach. They're big enough for the whole family.
We will definitely return, and bring friends!
