Beautiful location -- check. Silhouette island is stunning, there are several beaches within an easy walk of the lodge and all but the one in front of the Hilton (the only other place to stay on the island, as far as I know) were largely deserted, there is some good snorkelling directly off the beach in front of the lodge,...

The location is very good. The manager are very friendly and happy. When I stayed in silhouette the weather was very bad but I had fun in each moments of holiday. Food was particular and easy. Every meal was fresh and very good. 5 stars.of course.

The couple managing the property (Mariannick and Emmanuel) is very nice and helpful. Rooms are large, clean and well climatised. The property is at crossroads of all interesting hikes on the island and the managers will help you organise hikes and give you very good advices. You can also snorkel in front of the property. Food is at very high... More

There are a few gems out there and La Belle Tortue Lodge is twinkling away with the best of them. The lodge is new, well kept and in great condition. Our room was lovely, with a huge bed... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and had a lovely time. La Belle Tortue is small and doesn't offer what a 5star hotel can offer, it is much better than that. You won't have staff bringing you drinks on the beach but you will have personal, friendly service. The rooms are 5 star with beautiful modern well fitted bathrooms. The... More
