Located on top of a beautiful hill, which requires an adventerous little drive. Beautiful and spacious rooms make your stay more than wonderful. When you stay in a suite you are able to enjoy a very nice private terrace with a small private pool which is perfect when you just want to relax and stay at the hotel. The breakfast... More

We spent a few nights in Hotel Plein Soleil in January 2015 as part of a Caribbean/central America trip and unfortunately Martinique didn't impress us quite as much as we'd hoped. The hotel is nice. It is difficult to get to with pretty awful roads. This is just a fact. It's a bit of a trade off staying somewhere like... More

Really nice place with friendly staff. The place is though literally in the middle of nowhere, in between banana plantations, so you need a rental car. Breakfast yogurt amazing, and dinner better than many places in Martinique, although not creole.

We stayed for 10 days before Christmas and enjoyed the hotel a lot. Yes, it is a bit of a challenge to find initially (we arrived at night but had no problem finding it, once we followed the owner's email instructions). And yes, it is set amidst farms and the road is a bit rough and has pools of water... More

Dreadful drive from the main road much more suited to a 4x4 not a small hire car. Be warned! We arrived early at 12 after a long drive but were not offered so much as a drink on arrival. We spent an hour and a half by the pool no one came to ask if we wanted anything. We then... More

One of the reasons that I love Martinique, that sensual, sophisticated French Caribbean island, is that I love (Hotel) Plein Soleil. Over the years, I have watched it “grow up.” Both it and the owner, Jean Christophe, came of age in the hotel business some 17 years ago; its restaurant always refined, is now a landmark for contemporary cuisine, a...

We read a lot of reviews on Trip Advisor about this hotel and they all mentioned the same thing - the "road" into the hotel is appaling - it's like driving through the middle of a quarry. If you do decide to visit, the best way to get there is via a little village called "Chappotte". I think in general... More

We've been home over a month now and my feet still haven't touched the ground. The Hotel Plein Soleil provided the perfect setting for the trip of a lifetime. Simply gorgeous all around: the grounds, the suite, the staff, the food. Perfectly private and romantic, perfectly appointed suite, luxurious and spacious bath, and private pool.

We stayed here for three nights after having a flight cancelled, another flight delayed, and fleeing from a terrible hotel.....when we arrived we were very much in need of some relaxation and some luxury, and this hotel provided both in spades. It's a lovely, stylish boutique hotel set in the hills outside of Le Francois. It is a remote location... More
