Where to start...the plantation is so quant and quite. We loved everything about it. My husband purchased a living social deal for a five night stay with all meals and drinks included. I felt like it was such a great deal that we were some how ripping them off. I would definitely recommend All Inclusive! The staff was beyond wonderful and friendly and helpful. The rum punch drinks at dinner were so delicious. The cocoa tea for breakfast is a must try. The buffet lunches are delicious! The lobster dinner fantastic! There are friendly cats and a dog that roam the property. One cat made it's self at home on our porch! We stayed in the Hill top Guava room. Such a wonderful private room and view. Be prepared for the hike. We are fairly in shape and the hike will take your breath away. But worth it in my mind. The property is not only a cocoa plantation, but they have lots of fruits, and even supply you with a fresh fruit basket and allow you to pick all the fruit you would like. Make sure to take a tour and learn how they make chocolate from the cocoa pods. The owners are always around and are very friendly. They do offer a van that can take you to near by beaches since the property is not on the beach. Or they will arrange a car rental for you. I cannot say enough great things about Fond Doux.
