We spent two weeks at the langley Fort Royal, half board package. We stayed in one of the standard bungalows.
The hotel is located on the Basse-terre which is the mountaineous one of the two main islands in Guadeloupe, and also the least exploited one from tourism point of view. Transfer time is some 45 - 60 minutes from the airport.
The location is immediately by the sea and the hotel has its own beach with golden sand. The hotel is located quite remotely with no other settlements to speak of in the neighborhood. The upside is that the place is really quiet with beautiful surroundings. The downside is that there are few, if any, food and drink alternatives within walking distance. I would definitely recommend renting a car to make most of your stay (Avis has an office at the hotel).
Now, this said, the hotel is really nice place to stay, it has all the facilities you would expect and several of Guadeloupe's best beaches are within 5-10 km. E.g. the Grande Anse beach.
Vast majority of clientele is Scandinavians and French with some other nationalities represented; from families with kids to couples and parties over a wide range of ages.
The staff (many young scandinavians in the low 20's) is extremely nice and helpful and seemed to care about customer satisfaction. The atmosphere is relaxed.
About the food:
The breakfast buffet offers all you need.
The half board with evening buffet is definitely recommended. Freshly cooked food, a good mix with a variety of international and creole dishes, salads, cheese, deserts...
Bungalow we stayed was newly renovated, clean and fresh, quite small but standard was good. with internet access, although quite limited bandwidth/speed.
Quite many activities are arranged by the hotel; water sports, diving, activities for kids, tennis court etc. as well as excursions. Music live performances once or twice a week.
But again, I would recommend renting a car and exploring the island on your own.
