I am currently in the privileged position of working in Guadeloupe for the next 5 months. And for the first part of my stay, my company has booked me into this hotel. As I am frequently staying for long periods in different parts of the world, I experience many varied hotels. This one while not in any sense 'luxury' is perfectly adequate. It is certainly not what I would personally choose as a holidaymaker but I can see it's attraction for anyone looking for an all-inclusive sun and sand holiday particularly if one has children. It is worth noting though that the hour drive from the airport to here might put some people off. One is quite isolated, it is a 10 minute drive to the nearest town Deshaies and a 50 minute drive to Point a Pitre, so if you want to explore the island you really must hire a car. The beach seems lively but not crowded, there are the standard beachy activities to do. I think that sometimes the surf can be just a little challenging for swimmers so take the swimming conditions advise. The rooms are large, clean and bright and from my balcony in my standard 2nd floor room, I can almost taste the salt of the sea spray on my lips it is so close.
The breakfast buffet is pretty standard but good quality, abundant and well stocked. The evening meal buffet deal, unlimited food and wine or beer, can lead one's normally ladylike demeanour into sheer unbridled gluttony! Surprisingly for a large hotel buffet, it is kept very well. The food is changed or re-stocked frequently. And is simply good, standard fare. There is no room service here, although a very good pizza is served from the cocktail bar which you can take to your room should you wish to escape the mozzies. Bring mosquito repellant. You will need it!
The reception, restaurant and bar staff seem very sweet, and eager to help but whether they can practically achieve results seems to be a random thing. In my opinion this is a perfectly good, mid-range, all-inclusive beachside basic hotel with no nasty surprises!
