Hotel is located on one of the world's most beautiful beaches. Food in the restaurant is pricy but very good. The service was very good, with my only real complaint being that they ran out of shampoo! We were told it was supposed to be in on the boat but never made it...desolé messieur lol! This kind of thing has to be shrugged off in New Caledonia as most people have a very passive attitude which after time, despite it's inconvenience, becomes part of the charm. Other complaint was that our pillows were terrible, however we still managed to get a good night's sleep after spending our days exporing the island.
We stayed for three nights, and our departure flight was not until the evening of our last day. They provided us with a key to an empty bungalow to take showers and freshen up, which was a great service and much appreciated after a full day of hiking and salt-water swimming. We took the half day trip to Nokanhui and Ilot Brosse with the company next door and it was the highlite of our four days. Hard time deciding which island was more beautiful, I'd have to say they tied as the most beautiful places I've yet seen.
The pool is nice and it's heated, which is not common in NC. Snorkeling just off the beach is nice, and the fact that they close the beach to the thousands of cruise ship passengers is much appreciated.
This was our third stay in Ile des Pins and by far the nicest hotel (others IGESA and Kuberka) - though you have to pay for it! We used the passeport gouremand, which entitled us to 1 night free for two nights payed, so it made alot of difference to the end bill.
I highly recommend this hotel to anyone willing to pay a little extra to enjoy the island and relax in what is surely one of the world's most beautiful places.
