“Just perfect if you like to relax in simple but well run resort”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

The combination of a very relaxed attitude of guests and staff , the beautiful location and the friendly and efficient services provided by all staff members make it the perfect spot to spend time away from the "maddening crowd" .
Before going check if you can get a beach or oceanfront cabin. It makes all the difference.
Breakfast, lunch and diner are very good. The only time the cook seems to loose track a bit is when preparing the so called "special diners" . He is much better when concentrating on the standard menu items.
The cabin we had was clean and efficient.

Room Tip: see note on beach/oceanfront cabins

I love this property situated right on the sandy beach of Lac Bay. My cottage was close to the water and the outdoor bar/dining area. The facilities are well maintained and all of the Sorobon team made my stay very pleasant. I am a diver and windsurfer. Windsurfing is right next door at Jibe City. I rented a car for diving, going into town for dinner and groceries and just exploring the island. I will definitely stay at the Sorobon again!

The location right at the bay is beautiful and really great, especially when you are traveling with small children or like to windsurf. The water in the bay is not deep and very warm. The houses could use a little up-keeping (some lights did not work, broken screens on windows). A mosquito net for every bed would be great, since there are a lot of those on the island. Some more utensils in the kitchen would also be greatly appreciated. We did not eat at the resort since we found the price for the food very expensive (especially with two little kids). If you have a rental car there is a supermarket about 10-15 minutes away and also some good food options.

Nice food, good live music on sunday's, gentle staff, gorgeous view.
Perfect to "turn off" your mental agenda and concerns.
Makes you feel like a tourist in your own island.
a great progressive job that can only get better. Congratulations.

Sorobon was lovely, quiet, and a perfect location for us as windsurfers. The cottages are simple, clean and well equipped and the beach is fabulous. The staff members that we dealt with were very pleasant and helpful. There are a few things we'd like the owners to consider: please make wifi available throughout the resort and in the cottages. We can do without tv, but wifi, especially for families is a must-have. Please consider installing air con in the living areas of some of the cottages. We booked a 2 bedroom, which turned out to be 2 cottages side by side. We really didn't need all that room - our tween could easily have slept on the day bed in the living area if there was air con (and we would have paid a price between the cost of a 1 br and 2 br for this service). We didn't eat any meals at the restaurant because we felt the prices were too high. It would have been fun to stay for the beach bbq night and to meet some of the other guests but it was very expensive. We went to the beach bbq nights at Jibe City and Plaza Resort and both were very festive, well attended, good food, and much, much less expensive. We had a rental car so it was easy for us to get to the supermarket or try some of the inexpensive restaurants around the island.

Although secluded from any nightlife, Sorobon is a very nice and relaxing beach resort. The cabins are air-conditioned; the beach bar is great; the beach is quite spacious and clean; open air restaurant; and the food is fantastic .

The few drawbacks I feel need to be mentioned are: that the cabins do not have TV (no problem for me, but if you have children it may be an issue); no wi-fi in the cabins, but wi-fi available in the restaurant/lobby area; it's most difficult to keep sand from getting absolutely everywhere (even in the beds); although the restaurant very nice, the mosquitos will eat you alive at night.
