I have recently returned from a 2 week stay at the Bel Jou . As stated in other reviews the hotel has recently changed hands and many changes have been implemented . Due to the perseverance of the Saga guests some of these were reinstated. In spite of these inconveniences ( especially the pool ), thanks to the superb staff... More

There was about 5 members of staff to welcome us and Rita the Saga rep. Rita was our rep for the majority of our stay and is the best rep we have... More

We had received a phone call fromSaga prior to our holiday, informing us of the sale but assuring us that nothing would change and we could expect the usual high standard of service. It... More

Another fantastic holiday at The Bel Jou, all the staff are fabulous, warm, friendly and fun. As a returning guest you are treated as a friend, my partner and I booked for next year whilst still enjoying our holiday. The Island is stunning, such warm welcoming people who love their island.

Confirmed by rep and SAGA.It's a shame but think SAGA have been loosing money on it in the past. It's needs updating and maintenance. I hope the wonderful staff are kept on if it's sold as a going concern.Unsettling times for them. The laid back atmosphere is good if you don't like fuss. If you are expecting lots of energetic...
