A bijoux!

A bijoux hotel at the beach with excellent service. Nice rooms, tasty decorated, the staff checks twice a day, good breakfast, everything is clean, the small garden is spotless. If you prefer to be in the centre of attention instead of sharing the same address together with other 500 guests then Le Cardinal is a perfect choice.

    Small hotel in Ttou aux Biches

    This is a small hotel. It’s not at the luxury end of the hotel market but has a number of good features; our junior suite was spacious with sea views and a small balcony and a large bathroom that is almost the size of the bedroom. Interiors are neutral and it was clean and serviced every day. The hotel grounds are small with a nicely maintained garden and a very small pool and from here you can step down to the beach where the hotel enjoys a large run of sand and shallow waters of the Trou Aux Biches coastline which we used most days (includes other hotels and public beaches which get busy at weekends). The hotel dining room is small and with overhead lighting and felt like a canteen. The outdoor tables on the adjoining balcony were much nicer and more intimate but limited owing to the unfortunate weather conditions. We didn’t use the communal areas inside the hotel as they amount to no more than a reception area with a piano and in need of redecoration. We returned to our room after dinner. The staff were friendly and very authentic but seemed to have been trained in silver service with numerous cutlery changes at each meal and napkin flourishes. This is not required and I would have preferred a more leisurely eating experience as the food was always nice as opposed to established standards and timings which made meals routine and at an almost competitive pace.

    Pros: large bedrooms and sea view staff were friendly Food was consistently nice and well presented

    Cons: Communal areas totally redesigned Staff re-trained in contemporary service. Spa and gym-facilities v. poor at sister hotel Consistency

    Location: Beautiful sea and sand. But drive around the island, it’s very different. See the botanical gardens and visit independent restaurants.

    Perfect place to recuperate

    Stayed here for days prior to embarking on a 2 week cruise. Absolutely beautiful, small resort with every convenience you could want -- luxurious large room with spectacular view of the beach and grounds, wonderful evening meals, and a host of activities.

    Pros: Great facilities, beautiful setting, and attentive staff.

    Cons: Absolutely nothing!

    Location: Every beach activity one could think of is available, and I also chartered a deep sea fishing boat about 15 minutes away.
