As forecast by Tripadvisor, it was not easy to check in, reception closed, and we had to phone for help, which is a pain if on a British mobile number. The Wifi isn't easy either, key hard to get and only in reception. Location overlooking excellent bay, on beautiful peninsula - brilliant, IF you can manage a lot of steep... More

We stayed here for a week in January. The rooms are very basic and the services offered are minimal - occasional Internet services really being the only one. The restaurant on site is very special and we enjoyed a few meals here. It is definitely worth visiting. We had a couple of travel issues and the staff at the hotel... More

Staying at the hotel you are treated as if you are a plague and not a guest. We stayed there for 5 nights as a group. My room had pubic hair on the floor in the bathroom from the guests before and the cleaning people managed to move them from one end to the other in the bathroom. Cobwebs on... More

We stayed in this hotel 3 nights at the beginning of January. We decided to book a room there as the restaurant is really well rated and it's difficult (quite impossible) to have a meal in this restaurant without a reservation if you are not staying there. Honestly we were a little bit worried as the travellers seemed not very... More

this is just a 2 star hotel - normally we stay in 4-5* and we were really amazed! They just miss 2 more stars because they are small and there is no pool, but caravelle semi-island has nice beaches 2 minutes (l etang) to walk. the restaurant is worth a Michelin star - so much live for the details, haute...

A family run 3 star hotel located on a beautiful quiet peninsula. Had a self catering studio (Rooms 6-12 have best views). Rooms comfortable if a little tired, but cleaned to a good standard every day. Nice private shady spacious balcony. (Lower studios have more sun-bathing space if you prefer that.) Fine sea views. Responsive service from manager Bastien, who... More

I could write a very long manifesto on this hotel and their lack of hospitable and functional customer service. But, I will *try* to keep this brief-- I'm not sure if I can. We had booked directly with the staff for our June stay in February and had worked out all our details for arrival. They had been coridal and... More

We loved this small hotel and its restaurant. The hotel itself is full of character and furnished lovingly with antique furniture and ornaments. The restaurant is really excellent and the food served is of an exceptional standard. You can dine either on the covered verrandah looking out to sea or in the restaurant - either place is very romantic. Pre-dinner... More

We have been here for one week in February. The Hotel from their website seemed lovely; it’s a 2-star hotel, more pricey than usually in Martinique (84 euro for a standard studio). They qualify themselves as a "hotel de charme", well you can definitely say this for the restaurant and the reception, but not for the rooms. Our room was... More

It was my first trip to the French Caribbean (and make no mistake, Martinique is FRENCH!), and I came across this great little place. The owners are so kind, speak great English, and are wonderful cooks in the kitchen! They retired to Martinique from France. The hotel is basic, but fine. I think they have installed air conditioning since my... More
