First impressions of the hotel was very pleasant and the staff were super friendly with a complimentary rum to get you in the island spirit! It’s important to mention that the island is French/Creole speaking and although many can speak English, it’s not always easy! My French is limited and I found people to be very helpful and kind however, my experience would have been improved if I could speak the lingo a bit better! I was in an ocean view room and it was stunning to look out every morning and watch the little green lizards and iguanas! However! The hotel internals are very tired and the standard of finish is poor. If you are used too city hotels then you will be disappointed. The room was clean but things like black on the shower head and old silicone etc makes the room feel less so. The walkway between the main building and apartments is home to some very very noisy birds and they chirp all through the night! The restaurant food was fantastic although unfortunately has zero atmosphere. The menu is limited and quite expensive. I suggest getting out to see the island and try new things. The hotel reception team were more than happy to give me suggestions of places to try. Especially Emily who also booked taxis for me and helped decipher my terrible French, she was a pleasure to meet. There is loads to do across the island. Go out to Saint Francois, hike the volcano and have a drink I’m the marina! I will be back to visit Gwada!
