Travelers' Choice 2019 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
The Hotel Florita is the only active 19th century coffee magnates mansion in Jacmel. Jacmel predates "New Orlands" architecture entirely original. Furnished with antiques—art and artifacts are everywhere. Best bar and restaurant open 24 hours. Jacmel, safest, most charming town in Haiti, the least touristic Caribbean destination for sophisticated travellers. Jacmel was built on coffee--still the best anywhere. We have a plunge pool and access to the beach. Get picked up at the airport—by car, or fly. Arrange excursions, find anything you want. A plunge pool to cool of or swim in the sea. Friendly English-speaking staff, see our reviews--and who wrote them! Sheets cotton, feather pillows. Local meat and vegetables--live poultry. PERHAPS THE ONLY HAITIAN HOTEL WITH THE 10% SERVICE CHARGE GOING TO THE STAFF

First of all, i would like to thanks Jean and his team for the warm welcoming. They came get us at the airport and drove us at the hotel. The room was perfect, a little bit noisy on saturday night but calm the others days. They found two small beds for our children for free ! Last awesome thing: they have a children care service. It allowed us to go party without taking care of the childrens. I definitely recommend the Florita Hotel. Cheers !

The place dates from 1888 and as a result creature comforts could use some upgrades (no AC, sketchy plumbing). But I absolutely loved our stay. Chilling out on the balcony we were treated to an impromptu break-dancing concert in the street. Sea breezes. Great staff (thanks Angelo). The bar is incredible. Such character. And a great bartender who knows how to make a whiskey sour. Airy vibe with comfortable seating that is the social centre of town. Jacmel itself is beautiful, safe and friendly. You can wander the streets nearby stress-free and the beachfront promenade is very stroll-able. (Note that you need to travel out of car to find a swim-able beach, this is an easy day trip). If there was one establishment that I would not miss in Haiti it is the Hotel Florita.

Sit on the Veranda overlooking Rue De Commerce, have a Rum Sour, wait for a Ra Ra to come by. Have Michel the omnipresent, and everready guide go get you some cigars, breathe in, sip your drink, and breathe out, you are in Haiti and doing pretty darn well, you are not at the Marriott in Petionville because that is not really Haiti, here the ice is chiseled from a block, the sun drys your clothes, the food is made to order, and the artwork is ubiquitous and somehow still bespoke. You are experiencing luxury from a bygone era. Sit and look for the traces of people who have enjoyed this place before you and enjoy your stay. PS .Please do not think you can convert a Haitian Star to an American Star. Haitian stars do not pamper you. You are in Haiti, fool.

My fiancée and I stayed at Hotel Florita for a weekend to attend a wedding in town. This was my first trip to Jacmel and I was not sure what to expect. But I had heard so many good things about the hotel that I decided to stay there. And it was all they told me it would be and more! When we arrived to the property, one of the owners (Jean) greeted us at the entrance and helped us with our luggage. The check-in process took less than 5mns (reservation made on Booking.com) and we were even able to order dinner and have it brought to the room. The property although old was very well maintained. Our room was upgraded to at no extra charge. When we got to the room, it was perfect, nice and cozy (we stayed in the “Old Kitchen”). Our food came before we even unpacked and it was delicious. The hotel is perfectly located within walking distance of the beach and a lot of restaurants. There is a great coffee shop (Café Koze) right next door. Everything was just perfect. I am extremely glad we picked this hotel for our 2-night stay. A few people I definitely would like to acknowledge: Jean (the owner), Dominique (the bartender) and Willy and Lolo (at the desk). All these people made our stay even more special!

The room is simple and clean, and the bed was very comfortable (king-size, not just two twin mattresses put together!) with a good mosquito net. The air conditioning unit was not functional but the room stayed cool through the night. The hotel staff was very friendly and spoke Kreyol, English, Spanish, and French. They offered a free "welcome drink" at the bar upon our arrival, and the included breakfast in the morning was delicious and filling! The location cannot be beat... very safe and just a few blocks from tons of great artisan workshops and stores. Just two blocks from the seaside boardwalk in Jacmel (and just a 10-minute, 250-Gourdes moto-taxi ride from the Jacmel bus station on the outskirts of town).
