Some very interesting reviews on this hotel, with a mixture of results. It seems the issues can be split between self catering and hotel.
Both myself and my family (2/2) like a quiet relaxing holiday, in clean, quiet, effecient surroundings. Thats exactly what we got. We booked a self catering cottage away from the swimming pool.
As stated elsewhere the staff gave us the keys, showed us to the door and away we went. No problems, no fuss, friendly effecient service. The apartment was spotless. Everything worked a treat (apart from the DVD player).
Kids play area nearby with small swings, etc. Hardly used, again very convenient and within sight of the cottage.
Swimming pool very clean. When we stayed it was fairly busy but by no means excessive. Again very relaxing. The jacuzzi was a nice touch.
Didn't try the the food, but seems ok by the other reports.
Regrets: Yes...wish we had booked 2 weeks instead of 1!!
A/ Bring your own DVD player if you can.
B/ Bring some field games. the hotel is 5 minutes walk from a perfect park and sports centre. Great for frisby etc.
C/Good shoes so you can walk into town (20 mins, all down hill)
D/Catch the bus back up!!!
E/The pool has a slide but it does need to be covered in water before you use it. It can smart a bit if the kids slide on dry plastic. Take a bucket to help cover it.
F/Go to Lacresse beach (North of Island). Gorgeous beach, Very child friendly, very shallow run into sea.
G/ Go to Vazon bay, sit on the stepped bay wall and take a disposable BBQ. Check out the German underground hospital as well.
H/Theres usually something going on in the island.Check out the tourist information for events etc before you book.
Hope this helps
