Our experience of this hotel was absolutely amazing. Beautiful place run by fantastic friendly people who accommodated our every need – nothing was too much trouble.
My husband is diabetic and also has a gluten intolerance, and his dietary needs can sometimes create problems, but not here. Upon arrival we were treated to a very warm welcome with cold towels and cocktails, and the head chef came to meet us and discussed the arrangements for my husband’s meals. Fresh gluten free bread was baked every day, gluten free pancakes were prepared for breakfast and gluten free versions of the lunchtime bar snacks and main meals at dinner were provided! So, a special mention must go to the chef – all the food was exquisite, fresh and very varied: smoked marlin, shark, tuna, red snapper, curries, I could go on, it was “ALL GOOD” to coin a phrase used by one member of staff – you will know what we mean if you go, and we wholeheartedly recommend that you do!
We stayed in the Black Parrot suites and it was perfect, spacious, well equipped and spotlessly cleaned every day; shampoo, shower gel and soaps a plenty. We could use the fridge as unlike many hotels it wasn’t packed to bursting with drinks – this was an order what you like style mini-bar which suited us perfectly – free bottled water each day! The bed was gigantic and so comfortable – and the staff created numerous sculptures with the towels which were delightful!
We really enjoyed the guided nature tour up the hill (a steep hill) – phew!
We also took the free courtesy bus to Anse Lazio – fantastic, exceptionally beautiful perfect white sandy beach and lovely warm clear water!
We went island hopping and thoroughly enjoyed the experiences.
We adored the cocktails and the people who served them were brilliant!
All the communal areas inside and around the hotel were well appointed, clean and well maintained.
The hotel grounds were tirelessly cleaned daily by what seemed like a small army of friendly sweepers!
The hotel is situated on a quiet stretch of beach, with several small beaches within walking distance. We often walked out just to enjoy the tranquil surroundings, believe me, the birds, insects and plants are amazing. You won’t find any noisy bars, pubs or shops near – just amazing scenery, crabs, spiders and bananas growing wild. Oh, and the sunsets are staggeringly beautiful.
On our departure day we had an early evening flight but were allowed use of a suite to store our luggage – it had a PC with free internet access, showers etc. and was lovely to use until our departure. Even this was a pleasure with many staff there to wave us off.
In a nutshell we have been to paradise and we were made to feel valued and welcomed - We plan to return very soon!
NB, we booked through Kuoni, who were also outstanding – they use Creole agents who were fabulous.
