The trip to Grande Riviere is a long trip through beautiful scenery. When you arrive you are greeted with a beautiful private "cottages". At entry the staff are friendly and even gave us a free complimentary watermelon beverage. The dining was where it all started to go down hill. The menu tried to be way more upscale than it seemed the kitchen staff could handle and the wait staff (also bus boy/porter/bell hop/waiter/bar tender) had little to no instruction. After bringing the wrong meal and wine on more than one occasion and not even knowing how to open the wine, we were given direction with "this is chicken and some sort of grill something" and "Ya, i don't really know. Breakfast was not any better. We were over charged for our turtle watching as well. If it wasn't for the staff, awkward menu, poor execution of food, ripped mosquito netting, etc... this would be a pleasant place.
