“After a long day, I arrived in Paradise.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2014

Haiti has been challenged by poverty and natural disasters, and many locals stand firmly behind their country to restore it to its natural beauty - reflected in the gentle nature of the people throughout Haiti. That said, Americans traveling need a place to unwind and gather themselves each night...and the Inn at Villa Bambou is the place. The bed was actually a cloud, and I sunk into it the minute I retreated from the wonderful shower. I was fast asleep in minutes, after a delicious meal ... and could hardly wait for breakfast. Not only will I stay here again, I will ONLY stay here when I visit Port-au-Prince.

Room Tip: This hotel has amazing views...and all can enjoy the view of the city and ocean from the restaurant...

I had to go to port-au-prince on business last minute. I was lucky to find this hotel on trip advisor and read the wonderful reviews. Those didn't do it justice. Great service, beautiful property. Rooms were great, food was great. I travel 150-180 nights a year all over the world and this is easily in my top 3 hotels all time. If you're in port-au-prince staying here is an absolute no-brainer. Small boutique style, wonderful decor, just stunning.

There were some issues with staff and check-out, but the home is just amazingly beautifully decorated with stunning views of Port-au-Prince and PaP Bay. It just felt like your home, and having just been re-built after the earthquake, everything is new and working well. The breakfast and dinner are both great treats during the day with excellent cuisine in just the right preparation as you look out onto the tremendous vistas of Port-au-Prince from the hillside location.

No caveats needed to qualify this five star rating - this is not 5 star within the context of Haiti, it is just 5 stars, period. If you put it in the context of Haiti where there are no good larger hotel options, this is probably 7 stars!

That said, there were a couple of issues. First, the staff while nice don't speak much, if any, English. I speak some French which was very helpful, though the owner speaks English. Further, the staff just weren't that well trained - from not knowing the wines available to what they were serving to us or cleaning the room though we hung the "do not disturb" sign. Finally, the checkout was a bit upsetting as they told us in the morning that checkout is at 10am so we had to hurry to get ready and pack and they put us in their car and on our way to the airport much earlier than we would have preferred. Alas, this is Haiti.

Security didn't appear to be a problem in a country where it certainly is a problem. The airport pickup was smooth and there was a gate, security guards and dogs at the home to ensure our safety at all times.

This is THE place to stay if you are visiting Port-au-Prince.

Room Tip: Go for the VIP room - king bed with views.

A mansion with character and a great view of the ocean and Port-au-Prince. Safe haven for me who did not know what to expect safety-wise - the place is well-guarded and well-run. Excellent breakfast and dinner included in the rate. Monica has a tonne of insights on the country that she happily shares. With an attractive pool, the heat is much more enjoyable. If I had specific places to visit or conduct my business in PaP, I would consider a more convenient location, but as a tourist I think it works well. This is place that I would return to.

There's absolutely no way for you to anticipate what a wonderful place this is. Beautifully decorated public spaces and rooms. Just the right amount of comfort. Fantastic service, from the airport transfers to the meals. Monica is the an incredible hostess. I went on a business trip and returning with my wife in June. The grounds and the pool are beautiful. The views are spectacular. As someone else wrote, truly an oasis.

Everything at the Inn was wonderful! Beautiful setting with outstanding view of Port-au-Prince. The Inn was extremely well kept and the owner takes great pride in the property as she should. The room was fantastic, also with a great view. Our stay included breakfast and dinner and both were great both nights we were there. The room had fast wifi (which is often a problem in other hotels in Haiti) and Direct TV was also provided. Staff spoke limited english but it was not an issue at all and the service was terrific and friendly! Five stars all around!

Room Tip: We chose the L'Olivier and would highly recommend it as it is secluded and has a terrific view f...
