My husband and I stayed at Abaka Bay Resort on Ile la Vache. It was amazing! Upon arrival at Paradise we were greeted by a delicious Barbancour rum punch. We had a wonderful room just a few steps from the clear warm turquoise waters a comfortable 80 degrees. The towels were luxurious and fluffy cotton. The cuisine was Creole food from conch in a spicy p'tit malice sauce to fresh avocados and "du riz d'jon d'jon' a black mushroom and rice, then fresh lobster (langoustes) was delicious. For breakfast we had a choice of fresh juices and an omlette of our choice. Dinner was a lovely affair with beautiful, crisp linen tablecloths, fresh local flowers and the lovely breezes serenading us. Dinah and Fernand, our hosts could not be nicer and more friendly. The hot water in our rooms were welcome after a day of swimming in the pure turquoise waters. We recommend visiting the "Island of Lovers" - this is a sand bar that appears in the middle of the water. You rent a boat and a table and umbrella are set up for you as well as a supply of water and wines or rum. Swim all day and the water is so clear you can see the starfish below. We're going next year. We fell in love with the island and the warm embrace of the friendly staff. Lynn our hostess was charming and attentive to our every whim. Thank you for the wonderful vacation to Paradise. This is a very family-friendly place and we met lots of Canadians there. Plan to get nicely dressed in the evening (nice sandals and a dress for women/ men in nice khakis and shirt - no t-shirts in the formal dining room). This is pure R&R. There is excellent Wi-Fi connection at the bar. This is a 4-star establishment. Run - don't walk - run!
