A bijoux!
A bijoux hotel at the beach with excellent service. Nice rooms, tasty decorated, the staff checks twice a day, good breakfast, everything is clean, the small garden is spotless. If you prefer to be in the centre of attention instead of sharing the same address together with other 500 guests then Le Cardinal is a perfect choice.

6/10 Good

Small hotel in Ttou aux Biches
This is a small hotel. It’s not at the luxury end of the hotel market but has a number of good features; our junior suite was spacious with sea views and a small balcony and a large bathroom that is almost the size of the bedroom. Interiors are neutral and it was clean and serviced every day. The hotel grounds are small with a nicely maintained garden and a very small pool and from here you can step down to the beach where the hotel enjoys a large run of sand and shallow waters of the Trou Aux Biches coastline which we used most days (includes other hotels and public beaches which get busy at weekends). The hotel dining room is small and with overhead lighting and felt like a canteen. The outdoor tables on the adjoining balcony were much nicer and more intimate but limited owing to the unfortunate weather conditions. We didn’t use the communal areas inside the hotel as they amount to no more than a reception area with a piano and in need of redecoration. We returned to our room after dinner. The staff were friendly and very authentic but seemed to have been trained in silver service with numerous cutlery changes at each meal and napkin flourishes. This is not required and I would have preferred a more leisurely eating experience as the food was always nice as opposed to established standards and timings which made meals routine and at an almost competitive pace.

Perfect place to recuperate
Stayed here for days prior to embarking on a 2 week cruise. Absolutely beautiful, small resort with every convenience you could want -- luxurious large room with spectacular view of the beach and grounds, wonderful evening meals, and a host of activities.

8/10 Very good

Nice boutique hotel in quiet setting near town.
Well kept rooms and grounds, nice indoor-outdoor restaurant and bar, beautiful shaded setting on lovely beach. Attentive and helpful staff, especially Dinoo and Avish. If you are looking for a local guide, ask the desk to contact Max, who gave us a most excellent Divalli tour experience, including coffee and sweets in his family home. Only minor negative was squeeky floorboards in rooms.

Lovely quiet hotel on its own beach
We wanted a quiet stress free break and were so glad we chose here. Everything is high class, the room, the beach, the food. We didn't eat dinner here every night but when we did, the chef made excellent curries on request for my vegetarian wife. The staff are very welcoming and genuinely interested in you. The almost private beach - with security guard - has to be one of the best on the island, and water sports are included in the room price. With only 13 rooms, this 6 year old hotel is a quiet oasis - perfect for us, but maybe not if you want a more lively scene. We will return!

“Beautiful Hotel with wonderful staff!”
We stayed here for 8 days for a relaxing getaway, and did just that! From the moment we arrived we were made to feel so welcome. The room was wonderful and spacious with a lovely sea view. They were very clean with a large shower and a huge round bath. Everyday we were delivered some fruit or canapés in the afternoon and every evening were given the next days forecast during the turndown service - a couple of nice touches. The location is perfectly situated at the quieter end of Trou aux Biches and is ideal for watching the amazing sunsets. The beach itself is lovely and the hotel offers free watersports and a ride in a glass bottom boat. I have to agree with other reviews that it is a shame that they don't have happy hour earlier as it would be lovely to sip one (or two!) while watching the sunset. What we loved most about the hotel was the service of the staff, it was attentive but without the stuffiness. Every day they would go out of their way to come and have a friendly chat and to make sure that we were ok. On our last day, Samantha made a special effort to come and find us to say goodbye before she headed off home - we felt like we were leaving friends. Overall, I can't recommend this hotel enough. We would love to come back and stay again!
