The villa Saint Pierre is a lovely little hotel right in the middle of downtown Saint Pierre. The town itself is a wonderful base for exploring the northern end of Martinique. The hotel is located about an hour from Grand Riviere on the northern Atlantic coast and is well-situated for many of the hikes in and around the Mont Pelee region.
The hotel has a very modern feel, and although the rooms are somewhat small, they are quite comfortable. There was at least a sitting area in front of the window and a little desk. The bathroom has great towels and bath products. Phone calls we free. Definitely spring for a room with an ocean view. You’ll be on the quieter side of the hotel (the town is in full swing with traffic by 7; 30), and can enjoy a little balcony which looks out over the black sand beach and the boats bobbing in the bay. Glass of wine in hand, if you choose, you can watch the sun drop behind the horizon before heading out for dinner. The breakfast, which is included in the price, included all the usuals, pastries, bread, fruit, yogurt and coffee/tea. The couple who runs the hotel are very friendly and helpful with everything from dinner recommendations to suggestions for what to do in the area. It was very easy to make all the arrangements via email with one phone call to give a credit card deposit. I don’t know how much English they speak.
