Dedicated family rooms with an adjoining room for the children, give this hotel even more versatility.

Amazing experience, very nice people. The staff always try to help. I did first diving staying there. I will never forget being in Veranda Pointe Aux Beaches. Each evening we have show after the dinner. Something for everyone. Good place to stay with family but also for people who want to change batteries away from noisy and busy places.

Veranda Points Aux Biches was a very comfortable and relaxing stay. The pool and beach were perfect for culling out and our room well appointed with all we needed. We were welcomed and looked after by friendly and helpful staff who went out of their way to help make our stay as easy as possible. Perhaps the buffet style dining might not suit all, as at busy times it can stretch the serving staff. Overall though, we had a really pleasant and restful break in a beautiful location with friendly staff looking after us really well. Read less

The veranda pointe aux biches was comfortable and well situated. We were easily able to hire a car, which we eould recommend as many attractions or at the south end of the island. The rooms were great, the laundry service very handy (as we arrived following a safari). Many of the stsff couldn't do enough to help. My only slight niggle was the attitude of one member of staff at dinner who's 'joking' went too far and he came across rude. We also waited far too long for drinks orders to be taken. We had finished eating before we got water. I also don't think its fair to have to pay for drinking water. It kind of put a dampner on our last evening. I also discovered half board doesn't suit my holiday preference. Meal services felt chaotic and we couldnt find a clear table sometimes. Lots of flies and birds sitting on the food. However, there were a lot of tasty choices. Read less

The food was excellent and delicious, and the atmosphere was incredibly warm, welcoming and friendly. The staff and cleaning service all did excellent jobs and were always very kind. The rooms were extremely comfortable and felt like a home away from home.
