To say the Alamanda is a "resort" is a stretch. To say it is in a "resort area" is more accurate. The Alamanda is located next to a "square" with a number of restaurants, small businesses, a laundry (not a laundromat), and a small grocery store. The grocery store is about the size of a U.S. convenient store and is... More

My wife and I have just returned from our 5th or 6th visit to the Alamanda and have found it to be as good as ever. It deserves 4 and a half stars. It is a very relaxing place for a vacation within a short walk to the beach as well as the local restaurants. It is also a short... More

~Stayed week of May 17, 2014~ Cons: Extremely lackadaisical front desk staff who stayed on the internet and who had total disregard for customers (with the exception of Frank), the wifi was intermittent, there was no clock, there were only 2 outlets in the room, with none in the bathroom, the television was very small, we encountered some bugs, there...

Dear Angela, We truly apologize that you felt at our mercy, we never want a guest to feel like that at Alamanda and we would have been happy to relocate you to another property or a different room since you state there was a smell in your room and all we want is to give our guests an outstanding vacation...

This hotel is really worth a stay. Wonderfull staff, A real French hotel, everything easy going and laid back. Indeed, some things are not 'up to scratch', but when booking this hotel you know that and you accept it. It adds to its charm. The Alamanda Resort is the only hotel at Orient Beach with direct access to Orient beach,... More

Had a great week at Alamanda. Staff was very friendly & accommodating. Rooms are dated but clean & functional. Beds are on the firm side. AC worked great. WiFi was hit and miss in the room. No coffee in room so bring your own. Coffee maker provided. Breakfast with ala carte choices were a great start to the day. Location... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Alamanda resort. We had one of the largest Deluxe Ocean View Room. The staff is great. We heard the waves from the ocean every morning and every night. Wonderful food from 10 different restaurants on the beach & 10 for dinner all in walking distance. If you're American and you want upscale this resort... More

Stayed at the Alamanda Resort in mid-April based on generally favorable reviews and a moderate price tag. Overall I enjoyed the stay as best I could. The Alamanda is not a resort. It’s an attractive two story concrete walled and wood roof beach hotel, a little frayed inside, but with two bedrooms, a tired but working refrigerator, microwave, and hotplate... More

I will openly admit to bias in this review, but the bias itself speaks for this lovely resort. My wife and I have been 4 times in the past 5 years. In between we've taken other trips and even done other island resorts (Jade Mountain, e.g.) but are drawn back to Alamanda. First of all, the beach is absolutely lovely.... More
