My holiday at Desroches was an unforgettable experience! From the moment we landed and were greeted by about 10 friendly staff till the moment our plane took off again.
The staff are very helpful and friendly, nothing is too much effort and their attention to detail is outstanding. Everyone knows your name.
The food was excellent, wide variety, beautifully presented and very tasty and the service was great. Depending on the weather, one can dine on the beach, 20m from the water, under the big tree or on the verandah at the restaurant, overlooking the swimming pool and ocean.
I did 7 dives, each one phenomenal. The diving equipment and boats are all in mint condition and the staff really know what they are doing, above and beneath the water. the cave dives and swim throughs were my favourite, to be in a pitch black cave 25m under the water is mind blowing! (they give you flash lights...)
We did a trip to St Josephs island which was also great fun as we had a chance to do some deep sea fishing on the way back - nearly caught a sail fish! Next time...
Riding around the island with your bicycle is a must (you get your own bicycle on arrival, for the duration of your stay) - there are so many things to see. From the giant Aldabra Tortoises (the one was about 220kg) to the quiet picnic spots all over the island.
Other things to do is cricket matches with the staff on Sundays, tennis, spa, gym, yoga or plenty of relaxation.
The accommodation is great; spacious, beautifully decorated and each room has its own garden and private beach in front.
Thank you to every one at Desroches for an unforgettable holiday.
