Auberge de la Vieille Tour Review

At this island classic built around an historic sugar mill, everyone loves the initial welcome: a cool drink and citrus-scented towels dispensed by ladies in white eyelet lace. After a day at the beach it's back to your bi-level room with its glass-enclosed bathroom to watch the lighthouse begin its nightly blink (ask for rooms 85 to 90). The bedding throughout is luxurious, although other furnishings could stand an improvement. The wing closest to the lobby has smaller rooms but they have been more recently renovated. The lounge is a trip back in time, as guests relax in planter chairs and listen to the piano man.
