Book the Grande instead
Posted Nov 28, 2016
We were a little disappointed with La Toc. The beach is not what you think it is. It is pictured to be beautiful and clear but it is not. The beach sand is thick and hard to walk in, the waves were quite high and hard to navigate through on the shelly bottom (which hurt your feet if you did not have water shoes) and there was a very steep drop once you entered the water. The resort overall was in need of repair, it's old. The service at most of the restaurants was a bit slow, the Italian restaurant was a bit disappointing. It took forever for a glass of wine, didn't get a refill, received food that wasn't ours and no one took our dessert order and were left alone so we got up and left. The following day we met a couple floating in the pool who said take the shuttle to the Grande. We had to wait until 11am to take the first shuttle but once we were on board, we had no idea what to expect. When we pulled into the Grande, it was clear to us where we would be spending the last 5 days of our vacation and wished we had made it there sooner. The view was amazing, the beach was amazing, you could actually snorkel off the beach. The floats in the water were where we spent most of our time. There were two bars, the pool bar and a dry walk up bar. The free water extras were better, the snorkel boat, dive boat and so on. What I would say, if you are looking for that "Caribbean honeymoon" type resort, go to the Grande, spend the money. It is worth it.
