The hotel was new when we've been there, in a very good location, close to minimarket, boulangerie, bus stop at l'Anse Vata Bay.
The hotel was pretty comfortable and silent with a small space where you can arrange something to eat.
I strongly recommend it.

Beautiful Mare today. We were greeted at the Port by a choir of local women and girls, their voices were beautiful, as were their smiles. We spent a little time looking at the markets, full of colourful sarongs, cute jewellery and bits and pieces before catching the shuttle bus to Yekele Beach. This is the only tour available on Mare, as it is an uninhabited Island. The bus ride was a bit of an adventure, very narrow roads. ...

All apart from a lovely French girl called Fanny (dont worry, she knows how unfortunate her name is in the English speaking world!) who was in the bed above mine and spoke some English.

little girl in the grotto lit candles, while old ladies held their heads in
their hands in the shade. We passed a rock covered in plaques all saying 'merci
Marie’ for a miracle that she may have granted. The place and the atmosphere
reminded me of the 50s film Black Orpheus. All that was needed was spmeone
doing the samba. On the other side of this saintly statue there is ...
... the cruise ships come in. The locals hang from the trees like monkeys and hoot from the trees 'polepa' when the ships arrive. The locals are wary with these tourist invaders because these sailors don't take the trouble to convert money instead slap down australian money, haggle and expect the locals to be able to convert any of the prices to aussie dollars like human calculators. Island paradises are meant to be constantly balmy, peopled by consistently beaming locals and ...
... luckily there was a ‘Navette’, or shuttle bus, to get you into its depths. The landscape was a bright mix of the three colours of the flag of the indigenous people (Kanaks); blue for water, red for earth and the green of the foliage. In order to catch the Navette I needed to leave the car and cross, by foot, a very rickety Victorian bridge with a sign that read (in English and French) ‘No more than 10 persons at a time’.
I’m crossing plank ...
