Our family of 5 (kids: ages 10, 9, and 6) were seeking a warm, tropical vacation that had lots of outdoor activities, cultural education, and an "authentic" vibe. Fond Doux met and exceeded our expectations. We stayed in the Avocado cottage (large 2BD/2BA) perched on a ridge surrounded by tropical fruits trees (i.e. cocoa, coconut, grapefruits, papaya, bananas, sour sop,...

Our cottage was rustic, no A/C, and clean. The grounds and some buildings needed painting and repairs, but the sounds of the birds and insects made up for these deficiencies. We were not on the all inclusive meal plan, so the dinner selections were very limited at the onsite restaurant. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Were were disappointed...

We stopped here during part of our Land & Sea tour from Ti kaye. We were really excited to sample chocolate and learn more about their process. The staff running our tour seemed to be going through a pre-scripted mouthful of techniques. Not what we expected. The staff working in the gift shop were much nicer and actually more informative...

We just stayed 7 nights in the guava cottage on the hill. First of all, the cottages are perfect. There are unbelievable views from your front balcony everytime you look out.
