I stayed here for a conference and thoroughly enjoyed the experience but had I booked here to stay on my vacation I would have regretted the choice.
This resort isn't for someone looking to explore Guadeloupe. It is far from the action and bustle of. Pointe a Pitre and the two hour commute is tiresome. To do anything more than laying on beach chairs soaking up sun means commuting either by route minibus or driving(American style manual vehicles).
The other worry for me was with very few exceptions(and I mean one or two) nowhere accepts American dollars. Not the hotel, taxi drivers or local banks. You have to go to the Airport in Pointe a Pitre to change currency.
The meals were quite ordinary, with breakfast being the high point for me. They serve a splendid guava juice and by the way if you are like me and don't use either sugar or milk then walk with your own creamer and sugar substitutes, because the hotel does not cater for patrons like us here.
I loved. That my room had beautiful sea views, but the mosquitoes made sitting on my balcony living hell.
There is no room service for meals and you are not allowed to take stuff from the dining room up to your suite.
The room cleaning service is done every three days and neither sheets nor towels are changed until then. I had to ask for a change of towels and alternated sleeping on the beds in the suite.
There are two English language cable television stations CNN and ESPN and no provision for watching movies or dvds.
The staff were however extremely friendly, helpful and understood enough English to communicate with guests who spoke limited French.
Would I return to Guadeloupe? Yes! Would I stay at Langleys Fort Royal probably not, it's not my place for a Guadeloupen vacation.
