This complex of Creole-style, congenially weather-beaten cottages is set on flatlands adjacent to the white sands of its namesake, the island's second-most famous beach. It's often fully booked several months in advance by European sun-worshippers who come here for the beach and only because of the beach, expecting very little else. Each medium-size unit is well maintained and simple, with tiled floors and small fridges; a few have kitchenettes. Extras include full-length mirrors, mahogany furnishings, and double or four-poster queen-size beds. The resort's centerpiece is its well-recommended restaurant and bar, where doors open directly onto a view of the beach.
