This small charming hotel (10 rooms) is perfectly located in Grande Terre (the drier east half of Guadeloupe) at Anse a la Barque, only a few minute drive from the town of Saint-Francois, isolated from any traffic, about a 3 minute drive from the highway (route nationale). The manicured grounds, buildings and pools face south with gorgeous views of a small bay and the ocean. The rooms, all with ocean views, are comfortable and nicely decorated. The optional breakfast provides excellent variety for all tastes, with great coffee, fresh fruit and fresh breads and pastries.
As if all this wasn't enough, the real gem is the couple running the hotel, Betty and Francis. They are simply the friendliest and most welcoming people we have come across in a long time, and they make the experience all worth it.
To visit the island, you will need a rented car (good options at the airport). We did various day trips exploring and enjoying stunning scenery: touring Grande-Terre, touring the north half of Basse-Terre (more mountainous and tropical western half of Guadeloupe), going to Sainte-Anne and the beach, and taking a ferry over to Les Saintes islands. There is much to do in Guadeloupe and one week is definitely too short, we have a lot more to see and explore! Every meal we had was great! Saint-Francois also has some of the best restaurants in all of Guadeloupe, where both fine French food as well as local fare is served.
In summary, we fell in love with this group of islands and its people, and will soon return!

Room Tip: They are all great!

Amaudo hotel is not a palace, it is much better and unique.
You feel like at home in a dream place, beyond the usual standards.
It is a "hotel de charme" where we enjoyed family-style ambience, disscussions and accommodation. No commercial smiles, only friendly ones.
The rooms are comfortable and clean, the view is exceptional.
Fruit-based breakfast is highly recommended.

Room Tip: There are only 10 rooms. Book in advance a top-floor room.

If you are not into holiday clubs and big hotels then this is the place to be.
Amaudo is a charming small hotel with only 11 rooms, all equipped with Wifi.
They all have sea view and are well equipped. We had a very kind welcome, we found flowers on the bed and a punch cocktail was waiting for us in the fridge ;-)

We recommend you to take the breakfast downstairs: fresh baked bread, croissants, pain au chocolat, fresh fruit, yoghurt (if you wish for that) tea, coffee, chocolat chaud, juice.... A perfect place to start your day. We only thought they started serving a bit late: 07h30 => probably better would be to start serving at 06h30 - 7 am as days start "early" in the Carribean. However when an "exception" needs to be made due to an excursion, it is possible.

We believe it is a very nice and romantic place for couples, friends or singles. However may be less suitable for families with small(er) children due to the swimmingpool.
(no pool for small kids).
Anse a la Barque is a nice area from where a lot of things can be done: hiking, cycling, surfing, eating, snorkling, swimming, diving, canoeing, local markets (le Moule on wednesday evening) etc...

We really enjoyed our stay also due to the personal attention you get from the people working there. They are all very kind and very service minded. Most of the guests are French speaking people from France, Belgium, Switserland, Canada. Some will be Dutch, like us, Italian or any other nationality.

Anyway, Amaudo is a real good adress that will bring you good memories!
No regrets!

If you looking to stay in Grand Tarre this is a great choice. The sea view room had a lovely view and a very nice private balcony. Breakfast was expensive, but, was also the best coffee I had the entire trip. Maybe go for breakfast one time, get your bearings in town, and then you'd be set for the trip. I wouldn't spend all of my time here as Basse Tarre felt like it had a bit more "going on" and added a great dimension to the trip. Le Poivrier in St. Francois was a nice dinner, and the lobster fricacie at Le Zagaya was at the top of the food list. The best court bullion (though simple and probably more suited to lunch) I had on the trip was at Cafe Zig Zag in St. F.

We had read the excellent reviews of Amaudo on Tripadvisor - and we weren't disappointed. The hotel is indeed nice, quiet and clean. A few things were missing though. Strangely enough, there are no sun parasols (not sure if this is the correct term) by the pool - and the trees only give limited shade. If you, like us, come straight from Northern Europe or the northern US, you are almost bound to get a sunburn at Amaudo's (otherwise very nice) pool. Also, the place has a very nice bar-type area where they serve good breakfasts. However, that's it. You cannot buy a drink there, or a sandwich or whatever else you might fancy while lying by the pool. Another minor insufficiency are the TVs. Our TV old and around 17" (I think). These days, with larger flatscreens being so affordable, that's a bit cheap. Also, finding the place was a hassle. It wasn't too difficult to find the road that the hotel is on - but there are no indications whatsoever once you get to the hotel. We were told that an old sign apparently says "Amaudo", but even in daylight, you don't notice the sign, and even if you do, it is impossible to see what it says. Fix those things, and the place will be basically perfect. I should add that the two caretakers were very attentive and nice. If it wasn't for them, I would probably have given Amaudo four stars and not five. In any case, I would definitely recommend to the place to my friends and I would stay there again (although staying on the more mountanous other half of the island makes where most excursions go to makes more sense).
