The rooms and bathroom were clean and the full kitchen was wonderful. The rooms are spacious and you will have plenty of room during your stay. There is a market right down the street... More

Its the first impressions that count, and Brenda & Paul (the owners) really do try and make sure everything is ready. Brenda was even waiting at the door when we arrived. She took the trouble to show us around the property and spent as much as we wanted giving us the best tips about the island, where to find food,... More

A great place to be, perfectly located to the airport, really friendly staff and managers made our stay really pleasant. The houses are perfectly located by the beach, and very spacious. The beach itself is nice and the sunsets are gorgeous, for bathing it´s not a thrill, but taking the local bus to explore Anse Georgette (Brenda gave the guards... More

The hotel was clean, big, with a great bbq and what it is more important: close to en empty beach. That beautiful beach is not crowed at all; you can walk alone for kilometers except for one or two fishermen. By the way, Paul and the rest of the team were so nice and helped us with everything we needed.... More
