My Partner and I chose Tainos Cottages for our honeymoon because we had a read an article about the hotel in The New York Times. We chose Guadeloupe because we wanted a distinctly French Caribbean Experience. We spent the first part of our honeymoon at La Toubana Spa and Resort in Saint Anne. It was a bit hard to adjust...

Although the site is unique, hence the double price of competitors (300 € per night). But the service and conveniences are cery low . * Hygiene is bad : - Impossible to take a shower during all the week : no hot water and quite no cold water! - Waste water flowed through the floor and was not connected to...

These cottages are right on the best beach of Basse-terre; The grande anse. The cottages are a bit rustic, in that they don't have screens, they are a bit dark but they are comfortably furnished and very clean. There are only 7 cottages and each is a bit different. This is a very unique spot. Staying at Tainos is like... More

On one of the best beaches on the island, Tainos Cottages offers you the best location and access to Grand Anse beach. Your cottage comes furnished with a mini fridge, a nicely appointed wardrobe, and a shower stall with plenty of hot water and steady flow. Daily maid service is also included, as well as a lovely breakfast. We spent... More

Large roomy cottages cooled by island breezes, no need for air conditioning, t.v. or phones. Delicious breakfast is served overlooking the sea and Grande Anse beach. The Tainos Cottages is a wonderful spot to get away for a refreshing break.

Largely on the strength of this article in the NY Times, http://travel.nytimes.com/2006/02/05/travel/05guadeloupe.html , my husband and I recently selected Tainos Cottages for our visit to Guadeloupe and we were thrilled with the choice. If you are looking for many dining options, beach activities and crowds found in large resorts, this is not your place. Tainos Cottages is a relatively quiet... More

We just spent a wonderful three days and two nights at Taino's. What a spectacular property with a small number of great cottages!. With beautiful views of Grande Anse beach that's only a 10 second walk away, you can't beat the location. The grounds are beautiful and there are great sunsets from the pool area. Check out the cool orange... More

My husband, our two kids (2.5 years old and 10 months) and I just spent 6 nights at Tainos Cottage. It was an absolutely wonderful experience! The cottages, individual indonesian houses in old teak are gorgious, very spacious and beautifully furnished. Ours, like several others (there's only 7 on the 'resort') had a bathtub which was half outside, yet offered... More

Tainos' appeal is simply that it's owners aren't trying to be hoteliers. They have 7 teak cottages **almost** on the beach. If you are looking for a resort experience, a super clean villa rental experience, or to be pampered for the arguably - "I should be pampered more fee" - they charge, you ain't gonna get it. But whenever you... More
