Another pool stimulated review. We were not here in March 2011 but before.
This pool over looks Grand Case and is wonderful to hang out in the day or evening. We were here during the Heineken race week so there were even more sail boats in the bay than usual, the evening views of the mooring lights are worth spending a hour or two. The pool is old world very blue and a quiet place.
The food op is a concession, very good, fresh, simple & not expensive. The concession is family run and therefore the atmosphere is tranquil, no boozing & cruising, enjoy as will & be civil. People here are from all over so if you want chat there are interesting opportunities.
The hotel is quite the place, my wife cried when we she walked into the room, sort of pre-hip nautical, lots of teak, tile, Putamao World Music in room and amazing views. Bathroom is built for two, the living room is still a good size even it shares the island kitchen and the bedroom is just fine, good bedding, in-room safe...
Mountain side so lots of stairs and if you like to walk you can spend hours doing it shopping for a restaurant, browsing funky boutiques or choose to buy your wine, dinner and assemble it in room as we did. The balcony and the pool provide the best seats in the house for all the entertainment we needed. We only spent a night here coming back from Anguilla, tried to get into the Petit Hotel where we had stayed before but it was booked so we chose this sister property at little more.
