    Overall charming/relaxing, could use improvement

    Traveling during pandemic we were mindful to reduce contact with others - perfect for the deck and plunge pool at our hilltop cottage, peaceful & relaxing. Comfortable beds. Friendly front desk but you deal with many people so open to error/miscommunication. They misinformed us of PCR testing availability for our flight home, leading to stressful last day where the public nurse went above & beyond to help us make sure we had it to get on our flight (after telling us we were misinformed). Housekeeping is a bit of a miss…after they delivered fresh towels the one day, they left the dirty ones on the deck where they stayed for two more days. We didn’t want housekeeping in the cottage during our stay to reduce any possible COVID exposure to them and us so clean towels were all we requested. The steps leading up to it need serious maintenance - the toe of my sandal caught on one of the ridges going in the dark for our Christmas dinner and I fell several steps. I had only some serious bruising and scrapes so didn’t bother reporting to the front desk. Additionally, there is a crazy half step in brick at the end that if you’re not mindful of, you miss it. The restaurant isn’t terribly allergy friendly. After the third meal that gluten showed up on my plate after going into great detail the need to avoid anything containing gluten, we cancelled our meal plan and told the front desk why. They helped reserve us at other resort (Ladera and Chocolat) restaurants for meals.

    Fond Doux is a charming and peaceful resort in a lush tropical forest. The staff are friendly and helpful and the chocolate tour is a must. I recommend Fond Doux and look forward to visiting again!

    Paradise in times of COVID

    We loved our stay! The resort is located in a lush, tropical cocoa plantation featuring a fasscinating flora and fauna. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. However, due to COVID19 there are many restrictions and limitations, e.g. beaches are either closed or not easily accesible. Also, economic restrains and shortage of trained employees have put a break on the hotel's maintenance and service capabilities. Things are starting to break, paint peels, there are not enough towels, etc. We enjoyed our stay very much, anyway, but as long as this situation continues, don't expect things to work perfectly!

    I would not return to this property!!! We were so excited to have a private pool especially since our room was the furthest I believe from the main pool area, or so it seemed. However, when we got to the room, the pool was dirty, muggy, dead animals, leaves, insects all over in the pool...so disappointing. I asked if the water is changed frequently and is the pool cleaned daily, basically the answer was no. Well that was evident! Second, the pathway to the room was just so slippery. We stayed 2 nights and my daughter had 4 falls, to which she was hurting so badly that I had to give her Tylenol. The last fall was so bad that her phone flew where the guy carrying our luggage had to jump over the rails to obtain the phone from the bushes. Third, upon entering the room, I am not kidding, the entire floor was covered with ants...ALL OVER the floor, my jaw dropped. We had to place all our luggage by the window on a ledge. They came sprayed and left without sweeping, so beneath our bedroom slippers laid ants...it was so gross. The second night after spraying, still ants was just crawling all over the bed. I could not sleep...was too busy making sure that they did not crawl into my daughter's ears. The light switches were just darkened with dirt.The one beautiful thing that I loved about the resort is the outdoor bathroom...fell in love with that shower, I was greeted by a snail, spider and small frog in the shower but its beautiful with the banana trees and open to the outdoors

    Customer Service was excellent from beginning to end! However, the cottage was a bit rundown as is most of the Resort, I was very unhappy with having to literally hike up to my room. The walkway to the cottage was not paved; making it difficult to walk. When it rained, it became slippery and somewhat dangerous. This entire resort needs some serious TLC and renovation.

    The property was beautiful and really felt built into the landscape. The food was naturally DELICIOUS. And everyone, from reception to dining to the bar staff to the deivers, was so incredibly warm and KIND. They even helped me plan a dream proposal, after which everyone congratulated us the next day! Will definitely be back. If you love the tropical Caribbean landscape, can't recommend highly enough.

    Fond Doux stay

    For the price, this place was everything we hoped it would be and more. Amazing views, food was awesome, and staff was super friendly. Pool and plunge pool were a bit lackluster, but it was a very relaxing stay and we'd definitely come back.

    Dirty bathrooms in the Angelina Cottage, needs updating. Food is okay. The best thing about the property is customer service and the garden! Everything else, is meh.
