We stayed a week at Le Rayon Vert and thoroughly enjoyed using the hotel as a place to explore Basse-Terre, Guadeloupe. The rooms are like little villas with a patio overlooking an amazing view. The infinity pool was the highlight, lazing in the lounge chairs with a drink at sunset. Breakfasts are buffet style with lots of traditional French choices... More

Me and my family stayed at LeRayon Vert for two weeks, over christmas and new year 2011/2012. We only have good things to say about this hotel. The rooms were clean and comfortable with a fantastic view overlooking the ocean. The staff was friendly and very service minded. Most of them spoke english. The food at their restaurant was amazing,... More

Lovely situation overlooking sea with attractive pool and bar areas, this hotel has just had new owners who are clearly struggling. Rooms in separate chalets in the garden are roomy but let down by poor maintenance. Restaurant service at best described as indifferent and at every breakfast during a our 4 night stay something vital was missing (plates, coffee, spoons... More

My wife and I arrived on New Year's Day in the evening after a difficult taxi ride from Pointe a Pitre. Sylvie and Marc, the owners, immediately helped us and made us feel welcome. We were invited to sit for dinner (it was already 8:45 PM) before we went to our room. The meal that night was great -- excellent... More

We were two American couples with our first time visit to Guadeloupe and found this resort to be all the website promised. Very clean, beautiful grounds, exceptional infinity pool and view. We enjoyed the restaurant at the resort and highly recommend the lobster! Our friends were competent in French which helped alot in asking Q's to the owners. We didnot... More

The Rayon Vert is an excellent choice for a relaxing, romantic vacation. In the Northwest corner of Basse Terre (Guadeloupe), it is overlooks the Caribbean. The cottages are spaceous and each has its own private patio. The pool is large and beautiful. As you swim, it seems as if you are in the Caribbean. The restaurant was great too. My... More

We stayed at the hotel Rayon Vert earlier this week. GOOD:The hotel had a nice pool, great views and their included breakfast was quite good. When I say 'quite good', I mean that it included eggs, fresh fruit and yogourt whereas at some hotels in Guadeloupe, it's coffee and 2 small croissants. The rooms were clean, the bathroom large and... More

We chose a 2 centre holiday spending a week on Guadeloupe at Le Rayon Vert and another on Dominica at the Beau Rive. The contrast in islands is very marked, and despite the better roads etc on Guadeloupe the quiet, undeveloped and relatively unspoilt nature of Dominica scored for us. In particular we were not expecting some of the traffic... More
