This place is truly wonderful, and every bit as perfect as described on their website, and trip advisor reviews. We selected this place carefully, as this was the place we were to spend the second half of our honeymoon, and we couldn't have been more delighted. Immaculate, peaceful and beautiful, the rooms were very well appointed with homely furniture, and THE most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. We had the oversized loft, which was laid out over 2 floors, with two balcony/terraces that looked over the peaceful Grand Case bay.
The 'wecome' pack we were greeted with as we arrived at 10:30pm included a freshly baked french baguette, and jam, which we were really grateful for the next morning before we had a chance to go out in search of breakfast.
All the staff here were exceptionally good, and a welcome relief from the slightly cold, fake, over-the-top customer service that we'd received in Key West for the first part of our trip. They were genuinely interested in our trip, gave warm congratulations on our recent wedding, and sent a complimentary bottle of champagne to our room to celebrate.
We did rent a car while we were here, which is pretty vital if you are an explorer and want to get around. There are plenty of beaches nearby, or you can head over the slightly busier and noisier 'Dutch side' if you want to spend the evening in a lively bar, or to watch the jets come in at Maho Beach (you MUST see this!).
There are many high quality restaurants within walking distance, on Grand Case bay - you could eat at a different one every night of your trip and not be anything less than delighted with your choices. However, in May, we found some of them to be closed as it's low season and fairly quiet in the evenings. Still plenty to choose from though.
Thank you so much for helping to make our trip so special! :)
