I stayed at the Allamanda 3 days on either end of a trip on Windjammer Sailing Adventures, Mandalay. I booked through them and got a deal. The trade off was no breakfast but I'm a left coaster and not a morning person to begin with. The savings was better for me It was great to have such a nice place to get ready to go and then to decompress afterwards.
One thing I don't get is that everyone knows when the planes come and go there. I touched down at 10 pm but by the time Mandoo dropped me off at 11 I had to wake someone up to Check in. However once you made contact with ANY of the staff they were all friendly and would eventually get it done. But that's island life and when on vacation YOU really need to slow down anyway don't you think? The next couple days were "liquid Sunshine" but the restaurant and bar were open so I had no problems relaxing. Lilke others have reported the food was pretty good. Especially the Hummus appetizer and Lamb Schwarmi wrap. My only questionable meal was the Cheese burger. I asked if I had gotten a veggie pattie due to all the red and green bits but was told it was "minced meat". Don't get me wrong as it tasted very good but I'm a Carinivore and it was like no animal I have ever enjoyed. The room was clean and comfortable. My only complaint thre was that there are only 2 110V outlets available. One for the refrigerator and one in the bathroom, but only for a shaver. The problem is the bathroom one has so little current that it would not charge my PC, Iphone or camera. So my choice came down to technolgy or cold Caribs. tough decision! I was there over Christmas and you could not buy a converter anywhere. They did have a couple at the frontdesk if you asked .but now I carry my own. The location is great as it was in the center of Grande Anse beach as well as across from the Spiceland mall. There you can get just about anything you need.including GSM cards for both Lime and Digicell. At night you can always go next door to the Coyaba or Umbrellas is great if you can get in. Boulangerie across the grassy field is also very good. It changes from a pastry shop to an Italian restaurant at night with a HUGE selection of pasta dishes.
I guess the best review I can give is that I am already booked for this coming December and can't wait to get back again.
