As this was a surprise 40th birthday gift for my girlfriend and my first trip abroad for nearly a decade, there was a lot riding on this week-long holiday. However, from the moment we arrived in Boucan's incredible grounds, my worries were put aside.
I chose the hotel for its views and menu, and although these were just as exquisite as I had hoped, they were not its greatest asset.
The staff at Hotel Boucan are what we will be talking about for years to come. Everyone from kitchen staff, spa staff and waitresses to managerial, house keeping and tour guides, were delightful. They balanced a professional efficiency with a laid back charm and friendliness. If only someone could install that kind of approach to some London establishments.
If forced to be critical I would ask that the very short, looping music playlist be expanded substantially so that regular diners don't have to listen to the same few songs two or three times a day.
Thank you for giving us a magical week. J & L
