Stayed here for 1+ week with family for work and vacation. This is a gated, private property, with a secluded beach and private parking. The centerpiece of the hotel is its giant pool ringed by lounge chairs, a bar, and the outdoor breakfast area. This is a very big, open property. There are well planned areas for seating/lounging: reception, bar,... More

In the heart of the beautiful lagoon of Saint Francois this is nice class hotel. Spacious suites, colonial charm and intimate atmosphere. Near the charming village of St. Francois, a 35-kilometers from the International Airport. La Plantation is located on the most beautiful lagoon the island. Within walking distance also plenty of shops, restaurants and bars. The property features 50... More

We were given a lovely room with a terrace overlooking the garden and for the first day everything was fine the hotel was clean, the towels were changed and room done. However, when going for breakfast the next day we noticed that the hotel staff was on strike. Having booked bed and breakfast the hotel manager (as I assume he... More

The hotel is definitely not worth all its stars - the staff is not friendly and helpful at all. Although lovely settings, I would not at all recommend this hotel, There are others in the island that I wish that we had looked into before we decided for this - I mean, not even a restaurant? My friends and I... More

Just returned from a week in La Cocoteraie. We were considering to cancel the reservation based on the reviews, but we are glad we didn't. Like many hotels in Guadeloupe the restaurant and bar operate independently from the hotel and unfortunately the previous tenant is involved in lawsuits for various reasons and as long as this is not settled the...

This hotel didn´t have a restaurant, it was closed - for what reasons we do not know. Maybe problems with bugs. The beach restaurant though had lovely staff, although the breakfast was a bit poor. The beach was not clean enough, and there were strange people hanging around at nights, when you were on your way back home from one... More

We stayed at La Cocoteraie for 4 nights after cruising the island and staying in two other hotels. The hotel is big, has a huge pool ... where no one sits... It seemed like we had the whole hotel for ourselves, we saw no more than 8 other guests during our stay. We stayed at a beach suite, the rooms... More

This was a small, quiet, gorgeous place - just what we were looking for. 50 suites, with an enormous, lovely pool and a delightful (covered) outdoor eating area, located right on the beach. The included buffet breakfast was outstanding. We ate in the hotel restaurant for dinner only once, and this was a fine meal. The staff are efficient, polite... More

There are few nice hotels in Grand Terre - and, despite its 4 stars, this isn't one of them. It could be. The pool is beautiful, the architecture pretty and the location quiet. But the rest .... We had a 15 minute wait to check in. Our 'suite' was a heart sinker - holes in the plaster, chipped second hand... More
