We booked l'Archipel to celebrate our 25th anniversary and it was everything we had hoped for and more! By chance we found out later that my sister had spent her honeymoon years ago in the exact same hotel. We wanted a quiet location and our feet skimming the beach from our room, or nearly. The room was spacious, pretty, albeit sparsely decorated but functional and very comfortable, with a sea and sunset facing terrace to drink cocktails on at 6 o'clock.
The hotel manager Mr Suresnes, was extremely organised, helpful and attentive and the new management family is getting things done progressively to compete with the big guns not too far away.
But this intimate spot, with its own private beach, away from the road (not the case for the most expensive hotel on the island, The Raffles, a same-same chain looking monster), with a slow pace and no one to show off to is exactly what we wanted.
The Maître d'hôtel, Pierre, in the restaurant, was most attentive and very professional, as was the main waiter John. Mrs Demelza at reception is always smiling and suggested so many great ideas for restaurants and activities. Nothing is too much for the staff and management. They mean to make your stay very comfortable. We really relaxed here and were truly sorry to leave our little corner of paradise. We loved l'Archipel and will return.
