Highs & Lows

  • The Caribbean views from your terrace, a big comfortable bed, and the small kitchen to cook a simple dinner at home.

  • The location, just perfect. On a rock surrounded by a tropical garden!

  • Swimming in the ocean and the small but wonderful infinity pool.

  • The fine dining is too expensive for what it is. Although I had the best lobster I have ever tasted, it was still too expensive!

  • The girls in the spa are all nice but should be better trained to work in a hotel like La Toubana.
