Second trip to Martinique & hoping for at least a third. Hotel La Bateliere is a bit run down, particulary on the exterior, so if you want a 5 Star resort, look elsewhere. Personally, I would gladly return to this hotel: Big enough to see to most needs but not too big to have character & charm. Comfy, clean, quiet...

The hotel is excellent: the location and views are awesome, the breakfast buffet is very rich and the staff are very friendly. Our room was very spacious, with a balcony view over the pool and the sea. The hotel is quite close to Fort-de-France, so it's convenient to visit the city. It's clear that the hotel is not new, but...

This hotel was a very pleasant surprise. We needed a place to stay for two nights in early March after a Caribbean cruise and before flying home to Boston. Large well-established hotel with many reasonably-priced rooms overlooking the water. The hotel hosted large events/gatherings such as parties, conferences, lectures, etc. Room was large and generally furnished in simple ways, one...

There is no question the hotel has seen better days. But the rooms have lots of space, our balcony (room 153) looked out over the water, beds were comfortable, AC was fine, breakfast was excellent, pool was nice, the beach is right out back, with good snorkeling not that far out. There are nice lounges. For the price, I consider...

The hotel was a pretty good stay for the price. The beach view was perfect. The amenities in the room could have been better! The TV didn't work which was a bummer. The dinner options weren't amazing. Overall, the staff remained helpful for any questions and concerns.

First things first, yes, the hotel is old. Yes, the rooms can probably use a renovation. Know this, accept it as part of the whole package - their prices seem to have already taken the state of the property into account, and if this is a deal breaker, then move on. If not, then is a hidden gem, and we,...

I have been travelling with my family in this "old fashion" hotel which gave us a lovely view of the ocean. The room was clean, also provided with a balcony, and the breakfast good enough for our needs. There is also a little beach just in front of the swimming pool. A "little" refurbishment though, would be appreciated.

The hotel needs upgrading and refreshing. The rooms were musty . The bathtubs did not have a safety grab bar or non skid mat at the bottom and water from the shower wet the outside floor quite easily, this could be dangerous. The meals were not impressive.

I can not give a appraisal of the rooms. I arrived early and room was not ready. So went for lunch which was excellent. After which I went back to checkin at 15.00 hrs. They were still not sure if the room was ready and I was met with poor and a condescending attitude which was totally unexpected and the...

Dear guest, First, we would like to thank you for your feedback which is extremely important to us. Concerning your room, the front desk staff always double check the rooms, calling our housekeeping staff upstairs, which can take a few minutes, for everything to be perfect for our guests. Apparently, there was a little misunderstanding during that few minutes since...
