Very rarely is a holiday destination as close to perfect in all aspects as Le Cardinal We were looking for a small hotel, peaceful surroundings, comfortable room, good food and directly on the beach. Le Cardinal has this and much more. We stayed for 17 nights and could have stayed longer. Le Cardinal is a luxury hotel and priced accordingly....

Fantastic location steps away from a white sandy beach. Well appointed rooms superbly maintained twice daily by helpful and thoughtful staff. In fact everyone at Le Cardinal were extremely friendly and helpful and are too numerous to name. However I would like to mention Samantha and Areyane who helped me organise my husband's birthday celebrations and Avish who attentively looked...

We spent 7 wonderful nights celebrating our honeymoon at Le Cardinel. We were greeted warmly upon our arrival and offered drinks during which the receptionist explained how the hotel worked. Our room was a junior suite and it was huge! We had already seen the photos online but they really do not do the rooms justice. We had a jacuzzi...

We stayed here for 10 nights: the setting was superb - right on the beach which, unlike some other parts of the beach nearby, is fairly empty. Fabulous large room, beautifully appointed, with a balcony overlooking the sea.

This place is truly fantastic. It's right on a very nice beach and the rooms are huge - all with some kind of ocean view from the balcony.
