Located on the cliff over Anse Patate, all of the 28 rooms of this unpretentious hotel have great views of the azure water below. Standard villas, which stand alone looking down on Anse Patate, are on the small side, but good value for money and fully equipped with the most amenities. The family villas and the honeymoon suites are roomy and enjoy fantastic views, if requiring a steep walk uphill. The usual white tile floors, heavy wooden furniture, and Hawaiian-shirt prints
prevail. A lovely pool overlooking the sea (crossed by a cute bridge that the kids will love), buffet meals (often with entertainment that members of the 21st century may find either painful or hilarious), and a tiny granite-boulder fringed beach complete the picture.
