My wife and I returned to Orient Bay on our 20th anniversary, the only other time being one of our honeymoon's cruise ship stops. The hotel was quaint and clean, and the included breakfast was great. Most days we either walked to the beach and took advantage of Kakao's included chairs and umbrellas or walked down to Orange Fever and...

I was very impressed with this hotel. Very clean, generous and friendly staff and very convenient to the beach and nearby restaurants. I had breakfast every morning and it was simple and very good. Its not elaborate by any means, but that's not what I wanted on this trip.

Stayed here on the recommendation of friends who stayed here. We were not disappointed and can recommend it to others. The hotel is right in the heart of the Orient Bay action. There's a great little grocery store which had all of the basics we needed, plus a nice selection of French products, at relatively reasonable prices. Lots of restaurants...

Great location, surrounded by lots of restaurants and bordering a beautiful beach. Easy to go Barhopping along the beach, do water sports or just relax in the sunshine. Good location for adults. Orient Beach is clothing optional, like the beaches in Europe. However, people here seem to be tourists and all are staying clothed! I would not hesitate to bring...

This is a quaint hotel set in the perfect location on Orient Bay. Right across from the beach, out second floor balcony provided a nice view and wonderful ocean breeze. There is a small shopping area a couple hundred yards away and the most wonderful courtyard of restaurants for evening dining. We will be going back!

Lovely small-scale hotel, the location is fantastic as it is located very close to the beach, personnel is very helpful and friendly, the hotel is a bit run-down. Many restaurants nearby and a small grocery shop as well.

Just returned from our third stay at Alamanda. As usual, it was perfect. When we arrived, we were greeted like old friends - people clearly remembered us from past stays. The staff is wonderful, extremely helpful and friendly. Franklin and Laurent at the front desk went out of their way to accommodate our requests. We had a second floor (recommended)...

The resort is a few feet from the long, wide, palm-lined Oriental Beach. Good-sized rooms with ceramic floors, balconies, kichenettes. Clean and well equipped, cable and wifi. Breakfast included. Plenty of parking. Ver friendky and attentuve staff. Near to a plaza eith restaurants, a grocery, and other shops. A perfect place for this beautiful island.
