Relaxing hotel - boat transfers not that convenien
Posted Oct 2, 2015
excellent relaxation place. Beach is only there when tide is not high, sea in front of the hotel is not that nice for swimming. Sea conditions and colour is best on back side of the island, but the kayaks are free to rent and go there. Excellent walk up and over the island, but you can't walk around the island as not all sand. Pool is a little tired and not clear, but hotel rooms are good. Uses solar power which is great. Food is ok. Breakfast could do with more bread options, as only sliced bread available, but eggs cooked how you want was a nice inclusion . Evening meal is usually at the hotel, as boat transfers push you into it. Food at the restaurant was good, but we ordered the same dish on two separate occasions and they were completely different dishes! Worst is free boat transfers are only two in the morning off island and two in the afternoon back.....no option to pop to the main island for an hour or so for free. If you want that you pay extra!!
Staff at the hotel are excellent and helped with taxi and car rental bookings....also facilitated late checkout well. Excellent foliage at and around the hotel. Some snorkeling on the side of the island, but a little walk from the hotel.
Would recommend people stay here as long as they are not expecting a great beach all the time or wonderful sea colours. Staff really make the place. Very relaxed feel. Great place to watch the rain on the main island whilst sitting in the sun on Cerf island.
