“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

My girlfriend and I stayed at Residence Oceane for 1 week during April. We are from the United States and speak little French which obviously makes traveling throughout Martinique more challenging but the resort staff was very patient with our broken french. This hotel is a fantastic value and is just steps away from a gorgeous surf beach. This was one of the most beautiful beaches that we encountered throughout our month of traveling on 4 islands throughout the Caribbean. If you enjoy surfing then this hotel is perfect! There are several surf board rental shops near the hotel that also provide private lessons. Tartane is the local town that is beautiful with several great restaurants. The countryside of the peninsula is one of the most beautiful areas of Martinique. The hotel is as depicted in photos. It was simple, not luxuriant, but clean and nice. You have a large private balcony that has a sink and stovetop, with pans and dishes provided. There is a refrigerator within the room. There is also a hammock on the balcony. The hotel serves breakfast which is delicious but is exactly the same everyday. You will be served croissants and baguette with an assortment of jams and nutella, yogurt, hard-boiled eggs, juice, and coffee. I highly recommend that you get a rental car in order to access the rest of martinique and to access Tartane, which is not within walking distance.

Excellent accommodation in the north of Martinique. It is made of a number of small bungalows. Ours had a balcony and a wonderful view on the ocean (I think most if not all bungalows would have it). There is no luxury, the rooms are very simple, but the position and 'ambiance' make it to be absolutely recommended. The optional breakfast (go for it!) in the morning was delicious. Staff very friendly.

Bed & Breakfast Hotel
All 25 bungalows (they call them studios but I think bungalows describes them more accurately) have air conditioning, some have ceiling fans, all have TVs, telephone, private kitchenette outside, private shower & toilet and the most incredible island breezes possible.
The hotel is located on the peninsula known as La Caravelle and looks down on the only surfing beach in all of Martinique.
It's owner is a lovely young lady (who also happens to be an avid surfer) who's first name happens to be "Oceane" (hence the hotel's name). Their website www.residenceoceane.com also gives you a LIVE cam view of the ocean from the lobby terrace.
The employees who work the front desk are very helpful. The hotel is located on a peninsula facing east at the Atlantic Ocean close to fabulous restaurants, the archaeological site of Chateau Dubuc and 5 minutes from the seaside village of Tartane. It has a fabulous swimming pool which has an unobstructed view of the ocean. The hotel provides a change of linen and cleaning of the rooms once a week and trash removal on a daily basis. Personally I don't need my room cleaned daily and I can make my own bed without a problem - I prefer keeping my privacy. The continental breakfast cost 6 euros p/person/day and is absolutely delicious. It consists of cafe au lait or tea, croissants, little rolls or chocolate filled croissant dough, butter and delicious locally made marmalades and an incredible variety of fruit juices. The total staff number about 5-6 and are some of the most helpful and charming people I've met.
The flora and fauna, hummingbirds and singing frogs are just precious !!
Only one thing... you'd better speak French - otherwise "rotsa ruck".

  • Liked — Everything ! The views, the breezes, the sea and the incredibly deep sleep and rest at night !
  • Disliked — Uhhh uhhhh uhhhh - can't really think of anything - uhhh.. Nope. nothing at all.
