Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Previous comments available did give some concern regarding friendliness of staff and cleanliness. Such concerns proved to be false. As with many Caribbean hotels parts were starting to look tired and in need of some paint. We were there in the quieter season as a couple - not sure we would have enjoyed the experience in the middle of the very high season. By all means eat in the hotel - but there are some excellent restaurants close by in Deshaies. Travelling around is easy.

Amazing, peaceful, top of mountain - great views. Small bedroom, shared bath [no problem] newly renovated. Loved the Basse Terre side. VERY mountainous - interesting driving! Met great people staying at the place - they only have 3 rooms. Continental Breakfast was very nice. Very helpful - I needed a dentist and Francesco arranged for it. Spent a week here and hated to leave. Bedrooms up a flight of stairs. This is NOT for kids.
Hotel in a tranquil setting, very friendly and helpful staff, the food was excellent, spacious grounds, swimming pool and sauna. Situated close to several very clean and quiet beaches. Cicadas quite noisy during the night but you soon get used to them. Very reasonably priced considering the facilities. You will need precise directions as the hotel is not easy to find. Within 1/2 hour drive of the airport.
"Fantastic location and view minutes from the beach"
I went to this hotel with my girlfriend for a week of holidays in Guadeloupe and it was fantastic.
First and foremost, the staff is very friendly, caring and helpful. We were arriving very late at night and they made sure that everything was very well setup for us.
The location is great. There are quite a lot of beaches within 10 minutes drive, a couple are less than five minutes. Beware, all these beaches have some great waves. If you don't like that it may be something to think about. But the beaches feel very exclusive and are stunning.
The view from the hotel is absolutely gorgeous.
We had no mosquito issues in the room which was very nice. They didn't manage to sneak in.
The rooms are spacious and they all have a terrace with a kitchen. This is great in the evenings when you want to try your culinary skills with local ingredients.

Although its name means low land, Basse-Terre actually has the highest peak of all the islands, Le Grande Soufriere, an active volcano that sits at 4,813 feet. The land consists of forests, grassland, and beaches, and houses sugar, coffee, banana, and cocoa plantations. Tour the island by vehicle or spend some time in nature looking at the waterfalls and rivers that adorn the island.
