La Metisse, as the other reviewers have said, consists of a handful of rooms facing the pool with a bit of a territorial view (you are up the hill past the golf course). The rooms are clean and of a good size - a little dated, but not horribly so. For the Caribbean, this is pretty high end for a... More

A nice quiet place just a delightful 20 minutes walk from St Francois centre. Hardly a hotel as only 7 rooms & no full time reception but very clean & comfortable. I agree with one of other reviewers that a kettle in room would have been useful, so if you are a future guest take your own travel kettle &... More

A quiet place with very helpful owners. We can only recommend others to stay there. The seven small houses are nicely decorated. We had a fine view to the pool and garden and enjoyed the fresh and delicate breakfast at the terrace every morning. We were happy for the help re restaurants and beaches.

La Metisse is a small hotel near the golf course in St Francois, Guadeloupe. There are 7 wooden chalets, tastefully decorated around a small but lovely pool. The welcome is excellent and breakfast is an original choice of local fruits and french croissants. The bathrooms are clean and functional but not luxurious and it would have been nice to have...

Super relaxing atmosphere. Delicious breakfast with exotic fresh fruits set outside by the pool. Our hosts were extremely attentive, friendly and professional and helped us with finding beaches, restaurants and helping to coordinate excursions.

We spent three very enjoyable days at La Metisse. The owners could not have been nicer, our poolside bungalow room was clean and neat. The hotel is small with only 7 units and is very quiet. The pool is very nice. Each unit has an outside poolside table with chairs and lounges. The owners provide a poolside breakfast of coffee,... More

This is a lovely well-maintained property with a few bungalows around a pool. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The hotel is in the hills above St. Francois, so it is not the most convenient place to stay if you are interested in activities around the marina or in the town. However, it was a great location from which... More

We stayed in this hotel only for one night and thought it was a great place for such a duration. The room is well furnished, although a bit dated. The breakfast consists of fresh fruits and spreads, and is served on the terrace in the morning sun. The couple running the place are very friendly. As they knew we would... More
