We loved the Santa Barbara, but if we return to the Island, would stay here over the Santa Barbara. The beach and the two bays... More

We were here on our honeymoon for two weeks. We loved the view from our hotel room and the pool and beach was really nice. What we have learned is that the caribien way of life is slow, our room was sometimes not cleaned before 4:30 pm and often there was still a lot of dust left in the room... More

We stayed in a beachfront one bedroom apartment in the La Belle building -which is separate from the main hotel. Beautiful ocean views from our terrace, and use of a private beach, so no problem getting beach chairs and shade. It is a nice man made beach, protected from the ocean with rock walls, forming an inviting lagoon for swimming... More
