I stayed at Auberge de la Vieille Tour 2 different nights in a week, and I almost felt like home ! The staff at reception is adorable, warm and professional. The view is breathtaking, the food really good - lunch, diner or the very complete and nice morning buffet. Anselme the barman makes up special cocktails, every day a different one, and is very friendly. Oh ! and the view...
The rooms also are great, with enough space, very comfortable beds, tea/ coffee and a minibar. Hard to leave them, but there is a nice little beach waiting for us !
At the beauty salon, they were already fully booked butnicely arranged for a massage in my room with an external, very professional masseur, whose service was well appreciated.
What more can I say... I loved this place and cannot wait to come back !
Overall we had a pretty good experience. The hotel is very pretty and also well kept. I really enjoyed the private beach and the amazing swimming pool. There wasn't much entertainment at our hotel but we were able to rely on a cab to take us to other places. The only issue i had was the low flow of air coming from our A/C unit. We mentioned it to the front desk but i didnt see a change in the result. Overall we had a great time on our excursion. MARC, our tour guide was amazing. I highly recommend him if you decide to visit the other parts of the country. I can definitely see myself coming back to this hotel.
This hotel was exactly what I needed, a place to relax and unwind. The accommodations are all separate and secluded and each has its own kitchen and private outdoor deck. The French-Creole hotel restaurant Is above average. The hotel staff are responsive, happy and eager to please. Spa services are exceptional and the gym is well-equipped. If you're looking for nightlife and a clubby atmosphere, you'll need to go away from La Toubana. I like that the hotel doesn't in any way cater to English speaking tourists. Most guests seem to come from France or other francophone countries. There is no gift shop. If you're not in good shape physically, one drawback could be the need to walk up and down very steep inclines in order to get around the property. Also, aside from the beach and the pool, there are no real activities for children - so leave them at home.
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here. The pool area is wonderful. The neighborhood is within walking distance of a beach and neat restaurants and a great overlook to watch the pelicans diving.

Ongoing renovations, but still nice. Relatively quiet, but some weekdays awakened early by noise at next resort over. Okay mattress, but nearing time to replace. A/C just right for February. Always hot water in shower, but low pressure. Elevators intermittent, okay for me (liked the exercise) but slippery tile when raining & not ideal for handicapped or luggage. Buffet dinner seemed a bit pricey, especially for late flight arrival & no less expensive option on site. Overall, I'd consider staying again.
The room had a kitchenette on the veranda, but no coffee maker. It took three calls to management to get a coffeemaker and cups,
Pierre and Vacance literature tells you to make a reservation at one of their restaurants and gives you phone numbers for them. First, our phone didn't work, and it took a day to get it fixed. When we tried to make a reservation at La Ballou on the beach and there was no answer. After calling the front desk we were told yo u had to cal at 4:30. We had no luck. Finally we walked about a quarter mile to get there on the chance we could find a table, and we did. But the owner told us they we're no longer affiliated with thhe hotel and the telephone extension was severed along time befor.
There were a number of other minor problems. But the worst problem of all was that they advertise WiFi, they have it but it is undependable. First, it is hard to impossible to find a signal strong enough to log on to. Once on the local LAN it is a matter of rare chance the the LAN is connected to the Internet.
