I want to give a thorough review without being too wordy so, here goes, the top Four reasons (there are many) Corterrel Breeze was an unbelievable value come true!
One-Value- Happy to say...It's real. The photos you see are actual photos of the rental and nearby beaches. Clean, running water, electricity, lovely grounds, oceanside, sandy beach nearby, free wifi, items you forgot or didn't know you'd need are available for purchase/rent. It's the least expensive hotel/vacati
Two- Customer service- Djeno was quick to respond to inquiries and eager to provide answers to any questions, even before I made a payment to reserve a room, and certainly after.
Three- Host- Upon arrival, Frantz picked up where Djeno left off, exuding enthusiasm for ensuring we had a positive experience in Haiti. He personally ensured our meals (which were extremely inexpensive) were prepared to our taste. I have a vegan diet and Frantz ensured my requirements were met. He even threw in Haitian/caribbean dishes, fruits, juices and veggies to give us a taste of Haiti on our plates. I will be heading to the farmer's market to find breadfruit, chayote and soursop this weekend:)
Four- Location-The ocean is right at your door! Lounging on one of the many hammocks on the grounds, sitting on your front porch or even in your room, the waves of the ocean are a constant soothing sound. Both me and my mother found it soothing...peaceful, our favorite aspect of the property and the primary reason we will be back. I'm a runner and started each morning w/ a run either toward Jacmel or Marigot, the ocean w/in view, followed by stretching and yoga, at the water :)

For all of these reasons and more, we canceled our follow-on plans and extended our time here for two more days. Fortunately, there was availability :)

“Gorgeous Views, Excellent Staff, Best Budget Lodging in Haiti”
Reviewed July 1, 2015 for a stay in June 2015
1
person found this review helpful

Coterelle Breeze is a gorgeous guesthouse on a small property right next to the ocean on a rocky beach. This is the most "on the water" you can possibly be. The bed was the most comfortable we slept in during our two weeks in Haiti and the large window opened up to a breathtaking view of the sea, palm trees, and the night sky.

Though the weather is very warm in Jacmel, the light sea breeze and efficient fan allowed us to sleep comfortably (and without mosquito bites!). 24-hr electricity, wow! This was a truly peaceful place to rest, read, and refresh after a week and a half travelling all over Haiti.

But I haven't even gotten to the best part: the host and staff. Frantz gave us the warmest welcome when we arrived and spending time talking with him - learning about the joys and challenges of being a Haitian entrepreneur - was a real highlight of our trip. Frantz knows what good service is and he takes pride in creating an excellent holiday experience at a reasonable rate - he wants his guests to experience all Haiti has to offer and is a wealth of local knowledge from bus companies to restaurants to Jacmel's improvement projects. Also, Jonas, another staff member, was exceptionally kind to us. Though we only speak "survival Kreyol" and he speaks little English, he was so patient with us and made us feel so welcome. What an asset to Coterelle Breeze!

A note on additional costs: We arranged an excursion to Basin Bleu for $25 per person and Frantz drove us personally, did not rush us, and gave us an excellent history lesson on the drive. I thought this was a great value. The menu is reasonably priced ($10-$12 for entrees, $3 for delicious fresh juice, $6 for breakfast) and the meals we ate there were delicious and the portions almost too generous! Even without an included breakfast Coterelle Breeze was one of the best values on our trip and truly our favorite of the places we stayed.

Please consider staying here rather than at one of the more commercial hotels in Jacmel - you will be supporting Haitian owners who treat their employees well and who reinvest their earnings in the country. In this way you can help to grow the Haitian economy.

Mesi anpil to everyone at Coterelle Breeze - we wish you the best of luck with your business and hope to visit again one day.

“A True Haitian Paradise - I Wish We Could Have Stayed Longer”
Reviewed June 18, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

people found this review helpful

Wow - I just can't say enough about our host and his wonderful place in Jacmel, Haiti. Honestly - after an gruelling 8-hour drive from Cap-Haitien (mostly in the dark), we arrived very late but everything was ready for us. DJeno had e-maied me a 35 page printable PDF file loaded with directions, currency exchange info, emergency contact numbers, things to see and so much more - it was incredible. Our cottage was right on the beach and we could hear the waves pounding all night. In the morning we had a great late breakfast prepared by the staff and just lazed around in the hammocks on a truly gorgeous day.
Unfortunately, the roads were so bad getting to Jacmel that we had to leave early but I know that this is one place I will definitely be returning to.
After the hustle and bustle of Cap and Port-Au-Prince, it was nice to be able to relax in a part of Haiti that just lies back and takes it easy. We felt safe and scure and completely looked after by all the terrific staff - though most of them only speak Creole (not a lot of French or English) but we still all learned to be able to communicate with each other with very little problems.
This place will change your perceptions about Haiti immediately (for the better) - I know it did for me. Kudos to Djeno and all the staff at the Ocean Breeze Cottages in Jacmel.

On behalf of the whole team at CBreeze, thank you for your great feedback! We would love to have more French & English speaking staff but we also feel a tremendous commitment to provide jobs for members of our local community, most of whom have had few educational opportunities. In employing our neighbors, we hope they will be able to provide better education for their children. (Note: The roads form PAP to Jacmel are all paved and generally in great condition. We assume the writer meant “heavy traffic”, when speaking of road conditions.)

As a Haitian, it was a pleasure to stay at Coterelle Breeze Cottage. The food was fantastic and delicious. The attendants were professional and attentive. This is definitely the place to be with love one. It create an atmosphere of love, kindness, gratitude, and intimacy. I spend my morning meditating by the water with natural ocean waves. I was treated as V. I. P. I planned to use that place for my annual visit to Haiti.

My trip to Coterelle Breeze was wonderful. If you are looking for a 5 star luxury hotel/cottage this place is not for you, but it is for individuals who want to get away and can appreciate the simple things in life like waking up to the ocean waves, nice ocean breeze, hammocks, wrap around porch and good food. Frantz and his staff went out of their way to make my friends and I feel welcome. C Breeze is a very relaxing location and I enjoyed sleeping on the hammock every morning. The rooms are cozy and very clean. This place is truly a hidden gem.

My girlfriends and I decided to take a trip to our homeland without the escort of family. We felt secured finding Frantz waiting for us at the airport to transport us to the cottage. The five of us bunked in a quaint two-room cottage with a Jack and Jill bathroom. Let me just say that the first sight of the property was breath-taking, but it was the dedicated staff that made us feel reassured that we selected the right accommodations in Haiti. All five women felt secured within the gates of the property and within the town due to the reliable transportation options availed to us for a small fee.
The meals were abundant, flavorful, and timely. The property was well-maintained, clean, and serene. You WILL feel as though you are worlds apart from whatever lies beyond the property's gates. The rhythmic sounds of the ocean will be your lullaby for the night and your alarm clock in the morning. The hammocks will rock you like a new mother to her child. Enjoy the property and then venture out to Bassin Bleu and the surrounding shops for beautiful crafts. The owner, Frantz is extremely knowledgable of places to go and will ensure you have the basic knowledge of the currency so you can fund your trip wisely.
Lastly, the entire staff made you feel as if you were home. They extended themselves farther than any other hotel staff I've ever seen. You will not regret it. I plan on returning and making this place my dedicated spot.
