Sometimes it is hard to articulate the specifics of what makes a place special, and in many ways Club Fantastico is one of those places. Yes, the hosts Chloe and Thierry are sensational in every way. They are accommodating, helpful and the perfect hosts. They become like friends the longer you stay. Then, just ask Thierry to cook for you... More

In the interest of full disclosure, this review of Club Fanastico is a compilation of opinions based on a travel group staying together. So as opposed to hearing only my views, this time you get 12 for the price of one! And while we are an eclectic bunch, all are highly experienced international travelers. First comes the short version. Pros:... More

I can certainly attest that the wonderful reviews of this resort are not exaggerated. My wife and I had a wonderful time at Club Fantastico! Our hosts, Chloe and Tierry, were so good to us. The views, the bedroom, the food, the pool, the relaxing atmosphere, and the service were just what the doctor ordered! I got to practice my... More

We have travelled throughout the world and stayed in Five Star resorts, but the beauty and simplicity of Club Fantastico is unmatched. The setting is simply magical! The views of the mountains and sea, the gardens, the pool, the bar with an incredible view, our room.....all were simply a backdrop for the kind of intimate experience one cannot find at... More

We knew we didn't want the crowds associated with cruises or even Club O, but we had no idea how we would immediately fall in love with Club Fantastico. Our first vacation in 5 years, and we are already saving the pennies and miles to return in 2015. Beautiful view, only 6 rooms all with their own privacy, open air,... More

From the moment we walked through the front gate, Chloe and Thierry made us feel like old friends who had come to visit. There is so much to love about Club Fantastico, but it really is the people who are the highlight. They are wonderful hosts who are always willing to help, share a story and do everything they can...

....the most enjoyable stay we've experienced anywhere in the Caribbean. This was our second visit to CF and it just gets better every visit. From the minute you walk through the front gate, you feel as if you've entered a wonderful sanctuary free from the daily stresses of life.

We just came back from a week at Club Fantastico. Chloe and Thierry were great hosts and were very helpful and knowledgeable about the island. Chloe was efficient in working out the necessary details and was most responsive to our questions. We rented a car through the agency Chloe arranged and it was a much better and less stressful way...

We just returned last night from a one week stay at CF- our first! As background, we are experienced St. Martin travelers who typically stay at Club Orient. Since we were celebrating our 30th anniversary we decided to do something different. In my opinion this was a huge upgrade from the Club O experience for a similar cost, all things... More
