If you hanker for a property where you can hang out at the pub and enjoy awesome views from the restaurant, the Ramada Plaza Hotel fits the bill. The top-level revolving restaurant, aptly called Le 360, feels a bit retro-'70s, but the view of the vast Pacific and the islets out at sea will take your breath away. The hotel is one of many on popular Anse Vata Bay and has a wide range of accommodations: studios, one-bedroom suites, and apartments with one, two, or three bedrooms.
All have either kitchenettes or fully equipped modern kitchens, plus flat-screen cable TV, and balconies or terraces. The pool has its own sandy beach.
