OK, I admit, it IS the best hotel in Gwadloup, BUT that doesn't mean it's the best hotel I've ever stayed at...The problem with Gwadloup is that tourism isn't really well developed, thus there are no major luxury hotel chains on the island (except for maybe the ridiculously expensive Club Med)...
The Sofitel should not be a 4 star Sofitel, but rather a boutique hotel or something like that. Still, it IS a good hotel, with rather spacious rooms, good breakfast and a nice small beach. I missed a drinks service at the beach, but to be fair, Vielletour is more of a business hotel (preferred supplier for Air France and business men visiting from the Metropole) AND we were there in low season!
The restaurant of the hotel exceeds expectations! It is really a feast to dine there, as the plates are an excellent balance of taste and colour!
For holiday people: we stayed at the Vieille Tour for the first week and in Basse Terre for the second week. Vieille Tour is great for resting (really comfortable beds and great views!!!), but for a true Caribbean spirit, you really need to visit the other side of the island.
For DIVERS: stay somewhere around Plage de Malendure (Bouillante) and dive with CIP, they are the best!!!
Guadeloupe (Gwadloup) is certainly worth visiting!More
