My boyfriend and I stayed at Villa Pomme D'Amour for 7 nights over the New Year holiday. We loved it so much, that we are already planning to return next year.
Josee and Pierre are amazing hosts. From the very first emails when we were exploring lodging options, until the end of our vacation, Josee and Pierre were available, attentive, and warm hosts.
Pierre picked us up at the airport. During the hour long drive to the villa, he served as a very knowledgeable tour guide, pointing out areas of interest, and filling us in on the local culture. When we arrived to the villa, our car (which they had arranged for us) was waiting for us, and Josee greeted us with her delicious rum punch. Josee had made dinner reservations in the village for us and another couple who had also just arrived. We had a great time with other couple, and ended up sightseeing and hanging out together throughout the week. The couple hosted a steak dinner night, which we had in Josee and Pierre's apartment. Great fun, great conversation. On New Year's eve, Josee made reservations at a local restaurant for everyone staying at the Villa. Best New Year's Eve I've had so far!
Staying at the Villa Pomme D'Amour felt like home. It is perfect if you don't like the sterile atmosphere of all-inclusives, want to be able to experience the local culture, and feel safe. Pierre and Josee have an open-door policy (literally). If you have any questions, needs, or you just want to chat and have a drink with them, you can go to their apartment, and will be welcomed in warmly. They never make you feel like you're intruding or being bothersome. Although they are very attentive and accessible, we never felt as though they were being intrusive at all. They are very good at being accessible, but also giving you your privacy.
We loved staying here! There is so much to say--the beautiful apartment, the private beach, the lovely pool, the grocery store nearby, the hosts! Loved, loved, loved it!
