We enjoyed our stay at Le Gouverneur. The hosts where very accommodating of our requests. I would recommend the Property for anyone wanting to being in walking distance from the beach but away from the noise of the beach strip. Just a few small changes would move it from 4 to 5 stars for me. Breakfasts were quality and interesting.
