With its feet in the powdery sands of the Grand Cul-de-Sac, this six-unit boutique property has much going for it, including roomy one- and two-bedroom suites with wonderful beach and lagoon views (one pool-view suite overlooks the palm trees). This is a good-value choice as much for the location and spaciousness of the suites as for the well-equipped kitchens. The massive two-bedroom suites, with 1,500 sq. ft. of space, even come with washer/dryers and dishwashers. All suites have king-size beds and private patios or terraces; the pretty tiled bathrooms are particularly roomy, with two sink basins and big tubs. The palette throughout is seashell white, with a décor that marries rattan and carved wood furniture with beachy cushions. You can cook in your suite or walk a few feet to O'Corail or La Gloriette for excellent seaside dining.
