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. I would not dare to say we are perfect but we try hard to satisfy our guests with many care which mean at least clean accomodation, good food and a quiet... More

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

When me and my wife arrived on this little gem off a island called Sainte Marie we new we arrived in parasdise. There is just no words to discribe the beuaty of the place.
