We had a wonderful stay. We had a three bedroom chalet and it was neat and very comfortable. We were very impressed with the cleaning service. It was daily (except for Sundays) and the housekeeper put so much effort into her work. This really made it feel like a true holiday since she washed the dishes everyday and we did not need to worry about it at all. The pool, jacuzzi and sauna is in an excellent condition. The staff at the reception was always available and helpful. The nearby Cape Vidal beach and their facilities should get training from the la Rochelle staff. La Rochelle is a five star experience where Cape Vidal is a one star experience in terms of its poor facilities.

I like this hotel because it's safety and quiet place . All staff are really nice and helpful, although I think the bed is too soft,also markets & restaurants are a little bit far, but still a convenient and clean.

One of the best self catering resorts that we've been too. The upgrades to the resort have been well planned and I only wished I could have travelled with friends or family. My husband and I spent one week of our timeshare here and can only fault the wifi, but seeing as how we were trying to get away, this actually was a good thing. The resort is extremely well managed and looked after. The staff are accommodating and friendly and the amenities really excellent. Loved the monkeys that run around and the birdlife is great too. It was also great having the swimming pool practically to myself as we were fortunate to go outside of school holidays.

This was a fantastic and very memorable stay. The location of this villa was right across the security entrance for the beach. the noise across the street of ppl drinking and shouting was a bit of a nuisance. other then that the staff and facilities were very good. thank you for the memories
