We stayed at Baoussala in early April, with a toddler and a baby. We were made very welcome despite the demands of our little people, and the staff couldn't do enough to help us. In fact the staff were brilliant all round. Baoussala has a lovely, relaxed feel, as if you have just stepped into a family home. It has been beautifully decorated (Dominique has a great eye for design) although some areas are starting to look a bit tired (a few chips in the crockey for example). The pool area is lovely and a highlight was definitely the spa! Although the room is quite small and simple, the massages were excellent and extremely relaxing. The room we had was spacious and well appointed, though a bit dark. The thick walls mean that, whilst cool in the heat of the day, the rooms can feel a little chilled and damp in the evenings. If you are travelling with very small children or babies, the cots in the rooms are perfect, you can get monitors to work, and the cook was very willing to prepare simple meals to order when we wanted them. The resident dogs, cats and tortoises all provided hours of entertainment, although there are quite a few concrete steps to watch out for. All in all we had a great stay and would certainly recommend it.
