My husband and I stayed at Vanilla House for the weekend and had an incredible time. The rooms are beautiful and clean, the pool inviting and the bbq area at night under those gorgeous trees was just the perfect end to a great day. Thank you to everyone at Vanilla House for making it such a great weekend - home...

Thank you Vanilla House for the most spectacular weekend away. The rooms are well kitted out, luxurious and set in the most beautiful spot. Between the pool, lapa, veranda and cafe, we didn't want to leave! We will definitely be back :)

Myself and a friend booked 2 rooms at the Vanilla House this past week and we were so impressed with every aspect of the place. It's very peaceful and perfectly located for hiking trails at la Morne and Chamarel and everywhere along the Riviere Noire.

We did a stopover stay, arriving late at 6pm and left by check out time at 11am. It was exactly what we needed- a spotlessly clean, well -equipped studio room with kitchenette. The interior decor was beautiful with lovely little details. Somehow they make portacabins feel luxurious. The beds were comfortable, the studio was spacious with a double bed and...

I made last minute plans for Black River and Vanilla House was the only option, but what a find. Superb tropical setting with well designed suites that feel enormous after the Bay Hotel. The Cafe on the premises serves excellent breakfasts and lunches and having Illy coffee is an absolute bonus for that "at home, but away" !! Thanks Dave...

After splendid Otentic we enjoyed this thoughtfully designed gem on the West coast. Relaxed Cafe in the morning, all facilities around town and the vibe of Tamarin Beach a short drive away. A car is helpful. Beautiful setting, spacious apartments and a sense for design which made our stay very pleasant. Highly recommended!

A few of us went for lunch. The service was good and it was a very relaxing setting. My friend had a burger and he really enjoyed it. The fish was superb and everyone enjoyed the dishes that were ordered even if there wasn't a huge choice. I'd love to see a vegetarian option but all in all the experience...

“All the rooms seemed pretty good. But if the TV is important to you, make sure you ask the lady at checkin - we asked the "gardien" who had no idea.”

“Pretty much all rooms are the same - none have a view of the beach and the rooms are all facing each other in a courtyard so no real privacy to speak of.”
