This resort is so beautiful. Tucked away on a small plantation, you can hardly even see all the cottages through the lush greenery. So very peaceful -- a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of life. On a side note: I had an issue with my transportation to the airport that I had arranged (my fault!)....

Villa was very clean, food tasty - maybe even too large portions, grounds nicely done, wifi, hot water, water pressure working well. No mosquitoes, which was sort of surprising considering that you are in mid of rain forest. They obviously take...

I stayed at Fond Doux Plantation for 4 nights. The place is beautiful with plenty of trees, the overall setting of the different areas was very nice.
