This was the fourth time we had stayed at La Veranda. It is possibly still the best hotel on the island but we noticed that standards were dropping especially in the food and beverage area.
We booked a deluxe villa and were upgraded to a suite villa which was quite spacious but just had a view of the back of another villa... for US$300.00 + a night we have stayed in better.
The breakfast was first class and the selection was as good as most 5 star hotels. However there were numerous times when some of the selections were not replenished on a timely basis and on one occasion there was no milk, bacon or tea bags to make your own pot of tea. There also appeared to be too many guests at breakfast and a shortage of staff. At one time there were 7 guests queuing at the egg station with only one poor guy trying to keep up with omelets and scrambled eggs more than half the guests walked away and chose something else.
Recently La Veranda have opened a new wing and almost doubled the number of rooms and guests however I don't think that the staff and dining facilities have increased proportionately.
Service at lunch and dinner was not a problem as most guests used to eat at other restaurants in the vicinity.... maybe due to the high cost. For example, the beach barbecue was US$50.00 per person plus the cost of drinks.
Anyway, as I said before it is still possibly the most exclusive hotel on the island with every facility of a 5 star resort but with the huge development of the island it will not be long before it has serious competition.
