Being the former french governors (in the fifties) residence this is the perfect starting point for a luxury resort. And it all looks good from the outset. Nice building with colonial style rooms in the main wing (the modern rooms in the side wings are way comfier though), a well maintained garden, pool with sundeck, spa and a tennis courts.
Then we have the local staff. Without complaining about the lack of english (and no french amazingly) and little understanding of basic western habits they are ... overattentive. Yes, that must be the word of choice here, overattentive. Whenever you spend time outside of your room they will approach you with different service offerings every two minutes. I guess this is the kind of service our grandparents likes when they wanna live out their colonial dreams of an long gone era.
