Certainly one of the best restaurants in Grand Case. It is a small boutique hotel and the restaurant at the base of Grand Case away from the hustle and noise and is right on the beach. My husband and I enjoyed good delicate food and very good service and looked at each other at the end with a smile saying... More

This spot exceeded our expectations in every way! Only 5 private suites, but with your own gardens, & small pool. The restaurant excelled in this town of great French restaurants! The views of the bay are awesome, & you can walk all of the beach from here, almost a mile in length. we loved all the shopping here easily walked... More

I've been there twice in 2014 and I have nothing but positive comments to say about this hotel. First time I was in Curacao suite and second time I tried Tintamarre. I loved both suites, rooms were beautiful, clean and spacious. The private pool is really something I enjoyed as it allows you to relax all day on your patio... More

We stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The location was perfect. It was right on the beach and the views from the restaurant and the outside bar were directly of the sea. We had our dinner in the restaurant shortly after arrival as it was late evening by the time we got... More

Stayed at this place during summer holidays. The place is very chic, stilish and cozy. Beautiful suites. Very clean. Perfect service. The restaurant is very good. Spectacular food. Is a very relaxing place, nature is all around you. The owners are very kind and attentive. Highly recommended!

My wife and I were recommended to the restaurant by the font desk at the Westin Dawn Beach on our honeymoon. We both thought the food was superb and it screamed classic French/seafood. Our waiter was very attentive (which is rare on this island - read: European, meals are expected to take forever) and helpful. We felt welcome, full and... More

Stayed at this place during the fourth of July vacation. Location was good but overall service was very disappointing. After my flight from NYC being cancelled several hours prior to departure, we emailed the owner, explaining unexpected change with attached letter from airline customer service. Anyway we headed there next day. Stay was quiet, not many guests besides us. They... More

Stayed here with my boyfriend for 3 nights during memorial weekend. Le Shambala is easy to find on the island and in a great location near the Grand Case restaurants. We stayed in the Saba room...it was clean. Unfortunately the lukewarm showers we took daily were a buzzkill. Wifi did not work at all in the room but worked by... More

Dear Guest, I am really sorry that your stay in Shambala did not answer your waits. It seems to me however important to indicate to the readers of Tripadvisor that the tepid water results from a bad use of the mixer faucet as far as we showed you how to use it as soon as you indicated us the problem....
