The natural beauty of this area is incredible. With views of the pitons, and a beautiful calm beach in a bay. I snorkelled everyday several times, (just by swimming a couple of meters off the shore), and got to see SO much diversity in their own coral reef. Not many hotels have such good access to marine reserves. Never too busy, and with free access to paddle boards and good quality kayaks. There isn't a pool in this hotel, but you will not miss it. That beach and what those waters hold is a million times better than any swimming pool. The food fresh, tasty, surprising and very varied. While local ingredients were used, they clearly had chefs from all around the world cooking highly refined plates. Breakfast could be buffet but we chose the menu option everyday. They had very speedy drink and food service to the sun loungers in the beach, and even the food there was amazing shrimp cocktail, burgers, fresh fruit, cheesecake. The restaurant at the beach also had a rich menu. And the dinners were spectacular, with the sound of the sea in the background and lots of fresh produce. The bathrooms small with variable water pressure in the showers. After a day on the beach and in the sea a great shower is important, but these could have been better. Also the bathroom was very small. Rooms i can survive with no Aircon but the fans could have been more effective. In spite of the challenge of how many shutters to leave open and what to do with the mosquito net we actually slept really well. One small but important improvement would be to put phones in the rooms, if only to contact reception for room service requests, restaurant bookings etc. Otherwise the only option is to walk to reception, which may or may not be a challenge. Anse Mamin beach ooh toilet facilities are not for the fainthearted. If you're familiar with I'm A Celebrity you'll be familiar with the jungle dunny.
