Alamanda Resort is a 42-room mid-range property with an unbeatable location in Orient Bay, an upscale community that has several hotels, restaurants, and one of the island’s best beaches. The resort isn’t located directly on the beach -- the sand is a two-minute walk across a quiet road; many rooms in the hotel have ocean views. The resort has a large pool, free Wi-Fi, and includes a continental breakfast in the room rate. The room furniture, however is basic and rustic, and the rooms look a bit tired. Guests might also want to also check out the Hotel La Plantation, which has similar rooms and a chic pool with a lounge-like setting, and it’s cheaper. Marquis Boutique Hotel in Anse Marcel has similar rooms for a cheaper rate, but they are not on the beach.
