We had an entire 2 stories house for us, very colonial style, quite unique! We felt quite special in the middle of a very tropical scenery. This place has free access to Sugar Beach club which is awesome to visit. The food is very good. It's I think the best value in town.

The staff at Fond Doux were wonderful. They were all friendly and helpful. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. Also liked that they were private. The food was excellent. Only wish the Plantation had a full list of activities that they provide listed within brochure/room. Would go their again without any reservations.

My wife and I stayed in Hilltop Orange cottage for a week at the beginning of April and had a wonderfully relaxing stay.
