Overall experience thanks to the location of the room, ocean view, was good. Some things you should know before booking with this hotel will be summed up for different areas we had some discoveries to mention.
The boss who had a tast of a tuna salad freshly made who asked us to taste but never came back with a sample for us to taste, This is a just word but no deed.

- Bathroom missing a place to put your toiletries

- Shower curtain in bathroom in stead of glass door
Conclusion: The restaurant is good for people who are not aware of food quality and who do not know the island like someone who has been burned and raised their. It is a good hotel for young people who would like to have the feeling of Saint Tropez but who have never been to Saint Tropez. Friday night there is music until midnight and this could messup your sleep if you are an early sleeper. Finishing of the rooms could have been better as the name really puts the expectations high. We could recommend this hotel for people who are not looking for something out of the ordinary but who would like to have the Dutch style feeling of food. The price is average but you can find better hotels for the same price which are better known. Service is OK.
One more last thing: watch out for the OB TAX whether it is including or not. And this also applies for the service charges which could range from 12 to 15%. Differences in menu price and restaurant price.
