The Karibea Residence La Goelette, Is not a 5 star resort. But it is a nice residence type hotel property. We had a 1 bedroom suite with a kitchenette situated out on the balcony . The view was very enjoyable. It made for a great morning cup of coffee and breakfast. Bedding and fixtures were fine. I really loved the... More

Residence La Goelette has so much potential. Really wanted to like it better, but the truth is that it's seen much better days. That said, a hotel being run down is not in and of itself a big deal: We knew this wasn't a luxury hotel when we booked, and we've done enough traveling not to expect a sterile American-style...

We had bigger room with view on the ocean and it more than fulfilled our expectations. Bathroom, bedroom was clean, kitchenette fine for basic cooking. Very calm location, still few minutes from the beach. Bakery and restaurants are close as well cca 5 min walking along the beach. Good location especially if you want to travel around Martinique and make... More

The location is great, but the hotel seems a bit run-down. There is a loose railing in the swimming pool that is a major safety hazard. It was not as pretty in real life as it is in the pictures. Wifi was only available in the lobby. That being said the view is lovely, the small kitchen was useful for... More

This property seem to be a time-share of sorts so all the rooms may not be the same. Our room on third floor had a nice set up but with a few drawbacks. Our bed was as firm as could be and no doubt it along with our pillows has long since exceeded its life expectancy. I am not sure... More

I was very happy to get a room much bigger than expected. There was a fridge and a nice balcony overlooking the ocean. The front desk people were very helpful with what to see and do around the island. The location of the hotel is in a very quiet part of the island. At night you won't hear any wild... More

This is no longer a hotel, but was sold off as residences and there are just a few rooms left that are used as hotel rooms. There is no restaurant and the whole complex is very empty, the elevators are broken and the rooms smell musty, the beds are hard and walls are dirty with chipped off paint. Overall everything...

Good location, excellent service. The hotel was clean and staff polite (If you do not speak French then you will struggle). Rooms were clean and comfortable. Food was adequate. If you want a quiet relaxing holiday this hotel will tick all the boxes. If you want a more lively holiday then chose a hotel in the South of the Island.

While holidaying in Tartane this year, my fiance and I visited the restaurant in the Baie du Galion hotel. We were recommended to go there by the lovely and very helpful reception staff, who went out of their way to show us where it was. From there, things went downhill.
