Me and my boyfriend stayed at this hotel for 8 nights. We liked it very much. You could never compare Radisson to Fours Seasons, BUT, it is a good hotel and it is probably the best choice on the island at this price.
Very nice beach.
If you do not want to leave the hotel (which you could if you stay only a few days), then you do not need a car. But if you want to see the island, then you will definetly need a car.
The road close to the hotel is a little too hilly, but you will get used to it. We rented a Hyundai i20 and we thought we will need to change the car because of those roads, but it was just a first impression. We loved it in the end, it was fun.
Grand Case has nice restaurants and bars, during the day you can go and stay there on the beach next to one of the bars.
Do not keep the balcony door open, there are mosquitos!
If you want to hike, you can go to the Petites Cayes beach. It will take you one hour and a half to get there from the hotel. It was not difficult hiking, but not very easy either. Take water with you.
The restaurant on the beach has good food. We loved the red snapper and the hamburger with blue cheese and their french fries :)
The bar on the beach is very nice too.
This is a good hotel for couples, but it is even a better hotel for families with children! Teh beach and the swimming pool are perfect for children!
Have a wonderful trip! :)
