we have been there just one night but that was enough to fall in love with the place. perfect hotel for romantic weekend…the only thing that we haven't been so happy about the restaurant (maybe they just had a bad day but the quality of the food was quite overpriced: promised filet was no filet, fish skin was not cleaned...

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

This was the 2nd hotel of our trip. It was not on the beach but had a great pool. The hotel is really cute & chic. Definitely a romantic spot not made for young children but they were extremely accommodating for our son. When we arrived we got there 1 hr before check in but the staff made great efforts... More

Spent a week travelling around Martinique and stumbled upon this wonderful place seemingly in the middle of nowhere. Quite the best of the French Caribbean. Exquisite food (breakfasts especially), service and rooms. Petals strewn on empty tables is one of many lovely touches. Do hire a car if you stay here, and it becomes the perfect base to explore from.... More
