“Clean but basic”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2008

Very clean and spacious and for the price adequate. The "beach" isnt much to write home about and the water is very choppy there making it difficult to swim. Hotel staff can be a little grumpy and rude. Breakfast buffet is good. Good location.

I find Martinique to be expensive... and of poor value. I had stayed the previous weekend at the Fregate Blue hotel which was charming in a "grandmother's cottage" sort of way... great people, great view but a little too close to nature for me (e.g. 2 mosquitoes in the room feasted on m ankles. This time I needed to find a more business-like hotel (i.e. Internet access)... a search of the web and tripadviser.com yielded an assortment of questionable properties unless you were willing to pay the high rates of the Sofitel. So I settled on this hotel as a compromise. The good news is there is optional WiFi Internet access but only in the lobby and the bar/restaurant (which are not air conditioned... not a problem this time of year but I have a finicky laptop that doesn't do well when over-heated. The facilities are basic... but comfortable enough... the staff were great. I forgot my purse in the lobby (after and online session) and they actually called me in my room to tell me they had my purse! Which made up for the fact that my room wasn't done by the time I retrned to my room at 2pm for 3 out of 4 days.

Aside from breakfast (which is included and is an extensive continental buffet) the food was inedible and expensive (e.g. 32 Euros for a buffet dinner at which I only ate a bowl of chili.) So... I hiked up to the nearby Sofitel which is beautiful and I had a lovely dinner... then had stomach problems for the next two days.

The hotel is near a little tourist village and that is a plus, if you don't have a car. There are restaurants there that aren't bad and a very good Italian Ice Cream place.

It would be good if Martinique could manage to provide a few more mid-range choices for a business hotel.

This hotel is like butlins, we booked after realising that the the hotel we had origionally requested was closed for renovations (Kamila)

The hotel pictures are very deceptive so be warned

We arrived and the hotel staff were v friendly , given our key and a map to find our hotel room OURSELVES

Discovered the room was on the 3rd floor ( no lifts ) of a chalet type block in the hotel ( they are all chalet blocks not a hotel with lifts and corridors) . After struggling up the stairs with a heavy suitcase , the room was tiny , musty , and the bed was nearly on the floor once we sat on it.

Traipsed back to reception and requested to see another room , exact same sceanario, , this time left the luggage in reception , viewed the room paid a cancellation deposit and left.

Sofitel Bateau martinique is only up the road and accomodated us thank goodness

  • Liked — the staff in reception were very helpful in locating a new hotel for us
  • Disliked — no lifts , musty rooms
  • Tips/Secrets — avoid
