The Terrou Bi is rated as a 5 Star property and meets that standard. The staff was great and friendly. You have several restaurant choices throughout the property. It comes complete with a secluded swimming beach / sunning beach. The property is secured, gated, and appears safe and well maintained. The swimming pool is fabulous and well managed.
You can get local SIM cards and "Orange refills" at the front desk. There's even an ATM in the lobby so you can draw local currency at the best rate. The rooms were spacious and quite comfortable.
The wireless internet is well situated throughout the property. You can also connect to a wired service in your room as well. The speed was about 6 Mbps DL and .5 Mbps UL, which is better than I've experienced elsewhere in the area. You authorize your device(s) once and you are set for the duration of your stay, which is a far better system than most hotels where you have the daily re-authorization routine with which to contend.
Below photos are from the hotel and surrounding property. There are many from the colorful fish market about 1/2 mile down the street. You should make a point of going there.

I'd highly recommend this hotel...
