Note: This property sustained heavy damage in Hurricane Irma in September 2017.

With a nifty location between two sweet little beaches and the fabulous restaurants of Grand Case just a stroll away, this resort gets a lot of repeat business. It's meticulously managed, and the on-site restaurant, Sunset Café—set on a rugged promontory jutting out into the sea—is a fine place to admire the turquoise waters all around. At night the lights on the rocks below attract big tarpon. Although the attractively furnished rooms are not luxe—and some are showing their age—the resort keeps upping the ante in terms of friendly service and attention to detail: You get a nice bottle of wine upon check-in, for example, and extras like continental breakfast, Wi-Fi, and parking are free. Each unit comes with its own private patio or balcony, most with wonderful water views, and fully equipped kitchens, which is great for money-saving dining. It's ideal for young kids, as much for the gated entry and exit as for the calm, clear waters of Petite Plage, but retirees also praise its slightly off-the-beaten-path serenity. The resort offers solid off-season deals.
