For the price I think this was absolutely wonderful. We were here for the last 2 weeks of December. We rented a 1st floor cottage. The room itself was very clean. The pictures on their website are true to life I would say. We had a small kitchenette outside and table and chairs. The hotel for us was very well situated, although we drove to all restaurants we could walk to more than a few shops, and the boulangerie was down the driveway! The driveway is steep I warn you, but short and we are on the young side so it did not bother us. Can't say much more about the hotel because we didn't use their facilities much.
We rented a Jeep for the stay not from the hotel but straight from the rental agency. They tried to overcharge us on the spot so it was good that we printed our confirmation and price.
The first day we drove to March and stocked up on food - mandatory wine/champagne, cheese, meats, veggies, coffe, etc. And thereafter came back a few other times. there is also a smaller market really close to the hotel, and we went there a few times to load stock up.
Every morning for breakfast my husband would run down the hill (3 minutes maybe?) to the boulangerie, and get a fresh baguette, and we would sit and enjoy the view with our coffee and breakfast.
Afterwards we usually made our way down to Eden Rock and rented their chairs on the beach- I think they were EUR 20 each for the day, but this way you had use of the beach, chairs and service. We ate lunch at Eden Rock, Nikki Beach, twice at Isle de France because we were having massage treatments there - all were great, and my husband enjoyed the "fashion shows". We also drove to a few of the local beaches some days, and they were all nice, but I hate laying right next to the sand =) so I preferred staying at Eden Rock and just renting the chairs (even though the beach at Eden Rock is tiny).
After dinner we would often walk down to Nikki Beach (its right down the driveway across the street), and play cards while having a few drinks. I would recommend bringing bug spray, even with a Gin and Tonic (or few) they bit me up.
So overall very nice stay, and we would return again - I definitely recommend the cottages, and the next time I think we would upgrade to a larger one.
