The hotel didn't change over the years but the service quality is low:
- when they cleaned the room we didn't see a difference except the bed were made: it is dirty and it get uncomfortable.
- rooms are old and you seem it everywhere from doors which do not close properly to showers which are leaking
- service is globally unfriendly and it looks like nobody care for the hotel
- if you are 10 min early at breakfast they will tell you so in a way you feel very uncomfortable. I'am the customer and not the reverse.
- food is very good: plentyfull, good choices, excellent fish but again it is not very clean even by island standards.

We will not come back because we felt too uncomfortable too many times.

If you are enjoying the Creole spirit be the guest of Calou. Go for a walk early in the morning through the narrow roads feeling the peace and songs of birds. This is an island and feeling it is really important to make your holidays everlasting memories. Enjoy.

Spent 2 nights there.
Very good breakfast. I recommend you to book the diner as well, served as buffet - it's delicious, all local food very tasty.
Staff friendly and welcoming.
Book in advance the transportation with them to get to the guesthouse because you won't find anything from the port - ride a bit expensive but you'll need it (unless if you dont have suitcases!)
Room is clean and spacious, with a safe and A/C. Private terrace as well.
You have to pay for the internet (200SCR for 500mb if i recall properly - in my opinion internet shouldn't be chargeable nowadays!)
Good location

I really recommend this guesthouse :)

The place is nice and welcoming, although on renovation right now. Bungalows clean and spacious, with daily cleaning and new flowers - and so new ants - daily. The turtles are so nice, but they stay in a very smelly place unfortunately. The breakfast is very poor and the person serving it not welcoming at all, never smiling not saying good morning. We rented bikes with them but were quite destroyed, better to find another solution the price is the same in al the island.

We arrived after dark and left at 9:00 the next morning, so my comments are based on a very short stay. The staff of Calou Guesthouse were very friendly and helpful. The cool towel and juice on arrival were most welcome. After a day kayaking and walking, I was ready for a good shower, but the hot water valve had been turned off and there was no hot water until morning, even though someone came to fix it immediately. Not that I minded a cold shower so much, but hot water might be something to ensure. The fruit and juice at breakfast were delicious. Maybe people would prefer a good-quality sausage to a frankfurter? The room was clean, with functioning A/C and convenient fridge.
