Les Ondines has been our home away from home for the past 10 years. We know the island well, and have been to many other hotel properties and villas but have remained really happy at Les Ondines. The personal, warm and welcoming service at Les Ondines is their standard. Zero staffing turnover really speaks volumes about the team. Raymond Laplace, the owner, is constantly investing in the hotel, doing maintenance and upgrades all the time. This hotel has never seemed "tired."
We travel with our kids who are now 12 & 15 - the staff has known them since they were babies! They love it at Les Ondines and can't imagine a year without seeing Raphael! It's a super safe area and they can just go out on the beach, and now that they are older, to the pool. While we don't spend much time on Grand Cul-de-Sac beach (we prefer Grande Saline) it is wonderful to look out onto the crystal blue lagoon, watching pelicans dive for fish while kite surfers and wind surfers fly by. The doors in our villa suite push back into the walls so it is completely open to the beach and breezes. The beds are so comfortable and so are the pillows! We use the A/C at night in the rooms but never need it during the day.
Wonderful property, wonderful staff, wonderful island. A perfect combination for the perfect vacation!
