Un personnel, souriant, attentif, à l'écoute. Une très bonne cuisine. Un superbe cadre. Une salle d'eau peut-être un peu vieillotte, mais très propre et fonctionnelle

Superbe vue sur les baleines qui sautent!
Hôtel très sympas. Personnel vraiment au top. Toutes les demandes étaient prises en compte. Johan nickel, même pour nous organiser des transports. Les filles en salle et au bar d’une gentillesse extrême et le chef avait un bon humour! Bien mangé. Tout est comme l’ile de sainte Marie. On vit en fonction de la pêche, de la météo...etc. Super séjour.
