Very nice hotel with its own beach and a harbor. The beach is a gem - no wind, no waves, beautiful sand, and no screaming kids and people.
The room was very clean and there was a Nespresso machine in the room, which was a really nice touch and we definitely took an advantage of that. Our hotel room was on the outer part of the building that didn't have any view of the grounds, which was a little disappointing (if you can, ask for a room facing the grounds).
The food was okay. We had breakfast buffet every morning and there was enough selection of to keep us satisfied. We had only one buffet dinner at the hotel restaurant and it was just good but not over the top. The appetizers were definitely better than the main course as the main course was just a selection of grilled meats and fish (a little bit overdone for my taste). All other nights we drove to nearby Grand Case where there are dozens of amazing restaurants.
The hotel is not on the main drag of Grand Case or Orient Beach, so one definitely needs a car to get to those more popular places. But, if you want to relax on the beach and don't mind driving few miles for an excellent dinner or for island exploration, I would definitely recommend this hotel.
