Christopher Review

This longtime favorite of European families delivers a high standard of courteous professionalism and personalized service. The renovated rooms are supercomfortable, and stuffed with unpretentious but luxurious touches like steeping tubs, flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, and specially commissioned 780-thread-count linens, using environmentally sensitive materials. Unrenovated rooms are nice enough and less expensive. Each unit has a private front deck with a lounge bed, perfect for relaxing with a book. Set in lush, mature tropical gardens facing the rocky shore of tony Point Milou, the huge infinity pool brings the liquid horizon up to your toes; its shallow side is a dream for small kids (it has an alarm at night for safety). Book a treatment in the chic waterfront Sisley spa. An ample buffet breakfast and first-rate gastronomic dinners (there is a new chef) are served in a lovely modern pavilion. Lunch is a waterfront barbecue with fun live music, and yummy drinks come from the poolside bar. There's even 24-hour room service for light bites and meals. Most appreciated are the remarkably moderate prices.

    Christopher Review

    Recently renovated to a superb level surpassing many other hotels on the island. Been staying on the island primarily at this site for the past 16 years. The immediate past GM comes from a great pedigree and has left it in capable hands. Definitely the best pool on the island and forces you to visit the beautiful beaches. You will love the decor of the rooms and dining area. The staff is formal lover the EU and perfectly trained to be at your service.
