The hotel is a very modern property situated on top of a hill overlooking Fort de France. The rooms are small but comfortable with good amenities. The bed was very good. The flat screen TV provides only French language programming...not a hint of CNN or any other English speaking services. WiFi is free and connections fast.
Check-in was smooth and the desk staff are bilingual. Not so for the resto/bar staff. The restaurant is open for the very good breakfast which is included with the room charge, but then does not reopen until 730pm. Room service also does not commence until then. Food offerings do not included standard business traveller fare...no burgers, sandwiches etc. Prices are all in Euros (USD not accepted here) and steep. A small beer is over $USD6/EU5 and entress were n the $USD30 range.
As a business traveller it was a good location, near the airport and had the services I need. Being trilingual the TV issues were not a problem, but for a liesure traveller be warned that you are not in Kansas anymore!
