my husband and I came here for a mini vacation. Though we read the reviews it didn't prepare us for what we'd find. The staff at Fond Doux are polite and helpful. Always saying hello. Truly are an inviting people.
The owner himself is very involved. You'll see him daily talking to guests and overseeing. He is so involved that when I told him how much I loved plantain and I've never had before in my life he called the kitchen and told them next morning for breakfast to serve it.
Overall food is great. Their staff friendly and fun. Rooms are comfy and drinks are much better tasting then other resorts we've been to on the island.
