Fantastic stay, great service friendly staff. Our reservation was a little mixed up and our room wasn't ready for us so we had to move after the first night, then we had a double instead of a twin. But when we told them, they did sort it out. For me the beds were not very comfy - but that may be just me! You will need a car as this hotel is high on a hill and a good distance from anything. But this island is worth exploring so that shouldn't be a problem! La Toubana has great views, a fab restaurant and as I have said the staff are fantastic! So generally a great Hotel.
The rooms were comfortable, clean, stylish, and the beds were extremely comfortable. The views from the balconies were lovely and the balcony kitchenette was adequately stocked and very handy. The bathrooms were very nice, modern, very clean. Our only complaint was that there could be more hooks or shelf space, and the lighting could be a little better. The fact that the Mahogany is one of several buildings within the La Creole Hotel complex was a little confusing at first. The hotel staff was generally very helpful and pleasant; a few exceptions, especially in the buffet restaurant. Definitely a snobby bias against those who are not fluent in French! Be warned if you are English-speaking and not French-fluent that most staff outside of the front desk do not speak much English and misunderstandings can result. The food in the buffet, breakfast and dinner, is good-to-excellent. The pool is beautiful. The beach and swimming cove were just so-so, but the option of being taken out to Islet de Gossier just offshore, upon request, more than made up for it. Many amenities in the hotel and pretty grounds, like a good bar and much comfy common space for hanging out, made for an extremely pleasant stay.
Reserved a lowest cost, Gardenview room. We got a huge suite overlooking the beach with two full baths. Gorgeous, enormous pool with swim up open air bar. Open air lobby and dining room. Terrific location bordering the marina with lots of restaurants within easy walking distance. Breakfast is included.
After a minor traffic mishap, the wonderful hotel desk people handled everything, including filling out the legal forms and negotiating with the other party.
One of the very best places to stay in the Caribbean.
Family feel to this hotel, everyone that worked there was very friendly. Had a friendship drinks night which meant we met other people staying there. The Rotabas had everythig we needed and its close proximity to the beach is great.We would stay there again and recommend it to others.
This is a small hotel in two colonial style buildings about 10 minutes by car from the excellent restaurants of Saint François and 20 minutes from the town of Saint Anne. It has 10 rooms, a breakfast area, and a good infinity pool overlooking the Carribean. The hotel is meticulously clean. The couple who run it, Phillippe and Annie are warmth and hospitality itself full of useful tips and directions to help you get the best out of a stay.
The breakfasts of fresh tropical fruits, breads and croissant and coffee are a great start to the day. Otherwise, dining out is a must as the hotel does not have a restaurant and due to its peaceful location a hire car is also an essential. There are however many excellent restaurants and I was able to rely on the recommendations of Phillippe and Annie.
I think that some knowledge of French is helpful in Guadeloupe as this is the first language, the second being creole, and English a distant third.

"Clean hotel near the Beach, Casino and Restaurant "
The Hotel was whaat we needed for the one night we were on the island waiting for our flight.
It is well situated, near the beach, Casino and Resturant in "Le Gosier". It is not to far from the airport, will cost between 25 to 35 euros to get to airport (Depending on time of day or day)
We recently stayed at this facility and we're very impressed with the staff who were very helpful driving us to the beach or into town (a thrice daily offering), making restaurant reservations etc.
The facility is fading into its sunset years however with some gentle crumbling of intrastructure as is often the case in the Caribbean. The upgraded room was much appreciated with its kitchenette. Would suggest a tea towel and dish cloth with a little dish soap.
The pool was very nice as was poolside deck chairs.
Breakfast buffet was consistent with basic offerings of 3-4 bread, 1-2 cereal, jam, cheese, 2 fruits, juice and a variety of coffees and tea
With its white-sand beaches, rolling hills, and coral reefs, Grand-Terre remains the most frequently visited of the Guadeloupe Islands, and tourists snorkel, dive, or fish in the pristine waters of the Caribbean Sea. For land activities, play a round of 9-hole at Golf International of Saint Francois, visit one of the island's casinos, or dance the evening away at a local nightclub.
