I must say our stay began in a weird/upsetting way when they told us that we'd have a beach suite (bigger room than overwater but on the beach) instead of the booked premium overwater bungalow for our first night. They were not able to provide the room that was booked and we had it only from the next day onward. Needless to say that at about 1000 USD $ a night, this was unacceptable. However, when we talked with the management, they were able to offer us various cool things to apologize about this.
All in all, the location is amazing and the local/island feel of the service is great, so we would come back.
Here are 1 minus and a few pluses to consider:
- the premium bungalow (338) has damage to it, which would be ok in a 2-3 star hotel. The wall paper is torn apart behind the entrance, the bathroom door is destroyed to the core wood at the bottom and the wooden window (not the door, but the foldable windows) to the terrace is only opening if you lift it with all your strength otherwise it is stuck. We didn't mention those issues as we wanted to enjoy the rest of our stay!
+ the turtle center is great!
+ the staff at the beach hut is super nice.
+ the whole staff is adorable, so nice and warm.
+ we enjoyed meeting the management, especially Cécile and Babette and loved the stories about the hotel.
+ Poema and other staff members (especially breakfast, beach bar and souvenir boutique) were absolutely adorable with us.
We will be back :-)
Ps: we booked with Pacific for less and we loved all the free stuff they included in the package, would recommend them to everyone.
