I stayed at Le Cardinal on 11th December for a week with my husband. It was the most luxurious, attentive yet peaceful hotel I've stayed in abroad.
I would highly recommend this small boutique hotel to those who dislike large impersonal complexes, so evident around the island.
The food is superb and presented with loving artistry. The junior suite we occupied was huge with a fabulous outlook from our balcony. We stayed mainly around the hotel beach on the comfiest sunbeds I've ever experienced, swimming in the sea further round at the better beach of Trou aux Biches. The hotel infinity pool was perfect.
We took local buses to Grand Baie, an adventure from a bygone era!
This was a wonderful holiday in the middle of a Scottish winter and I would definitely return to this hotel.
