Yes, my room was very basic and rustic, and the bathroom sure saw better days, but the bed was comfortable, the view from the private balcony breathtaking, and the staff from gardener to management as sweet, helpful and fun as can be. Cabier Ocean Lodge has only a few rooms, so you get known to the staff and other guests quickly. The beaches are more or less private - on the left of the peninsular mainly for swimming, on the right for snorkling -, and although they are not the biggest with the whitest sand, they are secluded and great to swim. The inhabitants of the local village, Crochu, who come to swim in the evening or over the weekend, are friendly, polite and pleasant to talk to. - The hotel manager also offers tours over the island for a very reasonable price, which is a great opportunity explore the island. He knows everybody and is well liked and respected, which gives you inside of the islanders' lifes you wouldn't get with big sightseeing groups. It is a bit challenging to drive yourself: The streets are narrow and often very steep, and, of course, they drive on the left! - The hotel manager is also a wicked chef! Dinners are very private, prepared exclusively for the announced number of guests. There is no menue, but one 3 course dinner (and he didn't repeat himself once in a fourtnight!) every night, prepared with locally available foods. And it is delicious!
If you want to get away from it all - noise, traffic, stress, internet, and telephone - this is the place to go to! I do have to point out, though, that I was, indeed, the only guest without cell phone and laptop. Most guests bring these electronics, no one complained about bad cell phone reception, however, the internet, sometimes, had its own working hours :-).
