We chose this hotel having enjoyed Hotel Chocolat's chocolates for many years. We spent 5 days there to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. A delightful experience. All the staff are so welcoming and friendly; the rooms are large, well equipped and set in beautiful grounds; the cuisine is very special in using chocolate in most of its dishes - do not be put off as this does not mean everything is coated in chocolate sauce - quite the contrary - a subtle addition of chocolate nibs adds an interesting spicy flavour to dishes. For chocoholics it's paradise - for those with a more controlled enthusiasm, it's an exciting and enlightening experience. We did the "Tree to Bar" experience, exploring the chocolate making process from beginning to the end product which included grafting our own cocoa plant (which will be cultivated on the estate and which we will be able to see on our next trip !) and making our own bar - highly recommended. The estate grows its own fruit in addition to cocoa so the fruit platter at breakfast is the loveliest freshest most flavourful fruit I have ever eaten. Slightly out of the way, though daily there is a free shuttle bus to a nearby beach. The hotel has only 14 rooms which is a positive advantage in creating a small, friendly ambiance. They made our special event very special with lovely personal touches. Loved it !!
