We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom self-catering chalets. Lots of space and sufficient kitchen utensils. Clean bathroom towels provided every day. Quiet "beach" close to the chalet - although not suitable for swimming. Sufficient little shops around the island to purchase groceries. Marie-Rose always very helpful and quick to assist with any query / problem; e.g. our car had a puncture and she quickly phoned the car hire for assistance.
Disappointments were: mattress of the double bed was rather 'lumpy" and needs to be replaced; restaurant as advertised not up and running yet; location of Isles des Palmes is opposite the bay from the habour - so some noise is audible rigth through the day and night.
Overall we had a very relaxing trip, being able to do whatever we wanted to, without being tied to the schedule of a hotel.
Take a drive to the beach in front of Raffles - good for snorkeling and swimming and very quiet.More
