Can't vouch for the rooms as we were booked elsewhere, but the food, sweet mother of pearl, the food! The classically-trained chef knocked out an impeccable sauce au poivre, one of the absolute best I've ever tasted, and my wife's fish was equally delicious. I actually teared up a bit while eating it. I mean, the place looked quite fancy, but it wasn't nutso expensive, and you just never know; but even now I am drooling a bit just thinking about that sauce. (The vegetables were cooked to perfection too, and yeah the steak was OK, cooked as I ordered, on the rare side of medium rare). It was a quiet night (we literally were the only customers) which is just a shame, the staff deserve a wider audience. If you are ANYWHERE NEAR the area, do go eat there. Just go.

Room accommadation-awful. Bed sheets smell awful. We rented family room for four people, the fourth bed was actually a concrete sitting area with very thin mattress. No fan in the room. Air condition did not work as no electricity at night. Restaurant-Good-main dishes very good, dessert not really. Slow service, but accommodating. Ambiance-very calm. Sitting area on the terrace near restaurant - sofas dirty. I picked this hotel because of the comments left by others, but we were disappointed. Were supposed to stay for two nights, but only stayed one and moved to another hotel.

Dear Madam, Thank you very much for your comments which are important and meant to help us improve our work. We apologise for any incovenience you and your family may have encountered during your stay. La source aux lamantins is a small minimalist eco- ressort and one of his guift is that we offer a simple authentic personnal fitted service. All the accomodation discrepencies could be solved by informing the staff who is devoted to do his best to meet the needs of our guests in order to make them satisfied and Happy . We are still dependent of the national power electricity network with its ups and downs. We are now studying the possibility to get a solar power generator for the ressort although it is complex for air conditionning devices.The outdoor areas are deep in nature and may have some « visitors prints and leaves » feel free to ask for cleaning whenever you think it necesary . Your comments are so usefull and will generate appropriate policy to fix them. Hope you will come again to see wether your suggestions are taken into account. Best regards

I spent a lovely weekend there and the service was perfect. The staff was so warm and friendly, they never make you feel like they are "just doing there job". They really work with dedication and it's heart warming. It was hard to leave such peaceful place by the river. J'ai passé un weekend dans cet hotel et le service était parfait. Le staff est super amical et serviable et l'endroit est vraiment beau. Le petit déjeuner super copieux sur le ponton au bord du fleuve était mon moment favoris. Je recommande vivement
