We had a great stay at la Crique. The bungalows all have a view over the private beach. The restaurant has very good food, there is a choice of three starters, main courses and desserts. The staff is helpful and there when needed, otherwise calm and respect privacy. The beach is beautiful with white sand, turquoise water and rocks on... More

This was a very nice place and very reccomendable. The food is very good and so is the view and snorkling! The owner is a very nice guy. The only negative thing is that it is a bit far from the main city/village but if that is wat you want La Crique is what you are looking for. Don't forget... More

Thank you very much for this accurate review and personal compliment. In July and August the whalewatching is an incredible activity indeed. We are a bit far from the main town (17km), but i bet it is a fair price for our calm and authenticity. I hope to welcome you again for another trip. Take care. More

The grounds are beautiful... and everything else is very average or below average. The bungalows are ok, not very good value. Wifi in main lodge in the evening. The staff don't seem to care much about anything, which reflects the vibe we got from the owner as well. Dinner was served super late and was well below average for this... More

Thank you for your feedback. I must say I am a bit surprised because we try hard to satisfy everyone. This goal is unreachable but getting as close as possible is our concern. The diner happens to arrive late but your feeling may have been also linked to our cooker missing during your stay for personnal issue he had to... More

We did a day visit to La Crique in December and decided to return for 2 nights to try out the accommodation. Yes, it is basic, but if you are reading this is it probably what you want in the first place. It is clean, the only thing I would note is that the bungalows are quite on top of... More

Far one of the most objective comment i read so far, Renate. Thank you very much for this feedback and the remaining improvement pointed out that we can make.

This is a lovely, friendly, helpful hotel. The rooms are comfortable. There is a beautiful sand and coral beach with safe swimming in the sea. Great food. Lovely place to stay. I was here with a large group of UK scouts (older ones!) who all enjoyed the facilities (including a pool table) without getting bored and without upsetting other guests.... More

Staffed by French people it receives many western guests that want to stay a bit close to culture at home. Good price/quality but not very cheap. There are other options on this island that offer a comparable comfort for lower price. French cuisine with great food. Each room is a small wooden bungalow with all that is required: bed, large...

Looking through some reviews of 'gems' I've visited in the past I discovered La Crique. I visited there some 15 years ago and, judging by the pics from fellow reviewers it hasn't changed. Not one bit. There was very little development on the island then so maybe we were lucky when we hired soem friendly locals to guide us to... More
