Tranquil haven in an ideal setting.
Cariab Bay is a comfortable place with Duplex style houses surrounded by lush foliage across several winding paths. The breakfast is very good, European style, with croissants, coffee, yogurt, cheese, and fresh fruit. Catherine and Christophe are warm and inviting people, and their staff is friendly. French is mainly spoken but they'll accommodate your English with gaps in interpretation. The beds are mostly singles, with double or full consisting of two singles pushed together. The shower was nice and hot from solar heating. The facility is eco friendly. There us a restaurant just across the road, since they don't provide dinner or lunch. The pool is unheated, and can be icy cold. My friend and I gave it a go, and felt slightly numbed by the experience. The internet only functions while near their offices in the veranda. The best fact if the hotel is it's great proximity to Gran Anse beach, and a quick drive to Deshaies where you'll find most if the restaurants.
