    Overview 8.20 /10

    The hotel was built in 1987, then renovated in 1996 and 2002. The structure resembles that of a holiday village : The Croix du Sud is composed of one-storey bungalows with white façades and thatched roofs. The bungalows are scattered in a charming tropical garden spreading on 5 hectares. The relaxation areas include two swimming pools, which are very small ( 60 m² for one and 30 m² for another ) : little extended as a result, they offer little privacy.

    Food and drink 7.45 /10

    There are two restaurants with panoramic view onto the bay. "Les Aigrettes" ( main restaurant which can accommodate up to 250 guests ) is open for breakfast ( buffet ) and dinner. It offers theme buffets ( Creole, Chinese, French ) and "menu" deals. " Les Paillottes" ( with 40 place settings ) is a beach restaurant on the seafront and the swimming pool. It works for lunch and offers grilling specialities or light menus.

    Beach 8.45 /10

    The white sand beach, with a good size ( 200 m x 30 m ) is quite windy, but little noisy. It faces a beautiful landscape of mountains. All the amenities are available. You can practice free snorkeling (equipment supplied), sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, pedalo and canoeing. However, you should allow an extra for water skiing, bottle diving, game fishing and catamaran .

    To know

For a little longer cruise, you can go up to Deer Island ( located off the east coast ).
