Tendacayou We stayed three nights in Cabine de Dimitri, super charming and very cosy jungle style tree house. The house is composed of four wooden sheds; one of them constructed round a large mango-tree, this particular shed has a rooftop veranda under treetop, with two sun-chairs and a Japanese style bathtub. The other sheds contain kitchen, bedroom and bathroom/entrance.The decoration... More

Dear customers, Thank you for sharing your feelings. Our cottages are open to nature so her noises are indeed present on the night . As you mentioned the cottages are works of art and also the work of a lifetime, which amply justifies the price of a 4 stars hostel that we do not practice elsewhere. The restaurant offers upscale...

My husband and I just finished our 4 night stay at this sweet and charming hotel. The hotel is located up in the hills of Basse Terre, a short drive from Deshaies (Dee-Ay), and offers several unique cottages, or bungalows (as they call them). We stayed in La Mamoune, which provided for a beautiful view of the sunset over the... More

It had been several years since our last stay at Tendacayou and we were delighted to find that it's still a magical place to spend a few days. The open-air bungalows are gorgeous (some are in the trees...our favorite, Mamoune, is not...the gardens are amazing, the restaurant remains excellent, and the spa, added since our last visit, is beautiful.

MY wife and stayed here two nights after our sailing tip and it was a great way to wind down before heading back to Miami. The spa is amazing and the restaurant was a nice bonus.

My husband and I have stayed at Tendacayou twice and can't wait to return in May '13. The bungalows are amazingly created and crafted, the views are spectacular, and the restaurant is excellent. Everything is open-air, and there's no air conditioning in the bungalows, but the altitude and breezes make it very comfortable. Nobody speaks English there, but if you... More

A beautiful tropical setting, with adorable doll houses, some up in the trees, some bright and colorfull on the ground. The decoration is ecclectic and suprising but it all comes together beautifully. U have to love nature to sleep there, because it feels as if you were sleeping with the birds. We felt like kids again, having to cross a... More

Tendacayou is one of the very-few very-special spots, in Guadeloupe and elsewhere in the world. Their website shows very well the incredible creativity and fun the owners must have had in building a place full of vibrant colors, hidden corners and surprising decorations. It seems like they spent years on the sea bottom recovering an stunning mix of fishing gear,... More

Beautiful view; very sweet cabin ('yes papa'). Fantastic dinner on Saturday night (only evening they serve dinner => book well in advance). The room is basically open to the nature and we spent all day on the balcony when we were in the hotel... strictly speaking it' s not a hotel but much more a holiday apartment (small kitchen). No...
