Wonderful location on Grand Anse Beach and very friendly and helpful staff.
As far as accommodation is concerned the choice of suite is a matter of personal preference.
Our original choice when we first booked with Virgin Holidays Hip Hotels was a Sea Grape suite directly on the beach.We needed to bring forward the timing of our holiday.There were no Sea Grape Suites available for the revised dates so we chose an Anthurium Suite.
We were extremely happy with the revised choice which on balance we preferred to the Sea Grape Suites partly because of the additional privacy and additional tranquillity and partly because of the overall layout and facilities of the Anthurium Suites.
The only disappointment was the food which fell short of and did not live up to the great expectations generated by reading the reviews on TA ( or live up to the comparison of the food at an all inclusive hotel on a different Caribbean island a couple of years ago.) The standard of food was very variable - some highs but too many lows.We are familiar with the whole spectrum of food from basic pub fare through to fine dining and love to sample the local food abroad.Too often we found that the chef's " creations " were a mismatch of conflicting tastes and flavours which masked somewhat the fish or meat which we were supposed to be eating.
The lunch menu hardly changed at all during our stay and whilst there were specials each day the description of the specials delivered verbally by the restaurant staff sometimes did not accurately describe the dish.
For the most part the service was prompt and attentive but at times was amazingly slow even for the Caribbean and on many occasions we had to ask again when our order or request did not arrive.
Despite the slight disappointments referred to above we did have a very enjoyable and relaxing holiday in very acceptable accommodation in a superb location .
