Nicely located directly above a small strip of sandy beach, including the notorious coconut trees. Very quiet, small shops and restaurant nearby, even a local bakery. Self catering facilities are decent, so is the open plan living room. Bathroom might need an upgrade. The maid is not too thorough but nice enough, the guard is very friendly. Overall pleasant experience.

The beach is about 10m from the front door and the amazing sunrise welcomed us into paradise. La Desirate is situated a at Pointe au Sel which is not swarming with tourists and as a... More

We liked this place and the view! Decent towels, bed and A/C. There's security at night to keep the locals honest and a safe in the room! Rooms are decent as is the bathroom. The bed faces the sea and that wonderful sunrise! It's quiet and we were able to check in early after arriving on a 7 am flight!... More

The location offers 3 apartments. We had (2 adults and 2 kids) the central (the best in my opinion) with a large beedroom (open space), a kitchen and a bathroom. The view on the bay is simply unique. The room is cleaned daily (except sunday) and during the night there is a person in cherge of surveillance. The distance from... More

Stayed for our Honeymoon, a really good choice. It is not luxurious or 5* but rooms are very light and spacious. There is a large modern fridge/freezer, 2 electric hobs and a small oven. Good supply of utensils (maybe take a tin opener, ours wasn't very good) and a breakfast bar. In the bathroom there is a large sink, bidet... More

We originally booked with La Desirade for a week in December but upon arrival we were told they had overbooked and moved us to their sister property of Fleur de Sel. We were concerned until we saw the place - it was wonderful! It is a newer property than La Desirade about 2 km down the road on the same... More

Small beach left and longer right for walking at low tide, snorkeling is possible at high tide and you can walk along for a strol at low... More
