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.
Wonderful stay at the Langley. Mother/adult daughter trip. We were in a sea view bungalow. Clean, comfortable, easy access to the beach, restaurant, and beachside bar. The included breakfast was excellent. Many choices! The dinner was a little pricy at 26€, but it was worth it. We ate there every night - by choice, as we had a car. Great choices, delicious and different each evening. Best mojitos ever at the bar! The hotel is on a beautiful beach. We preferred the more secluded side in front of the beach bungalows. Great place to explore the west side of Basse Terre! Beautiful beaches near by, botanical gardens, the Jacques Cousteau Marine Reserve, the zoo in the rainforest, waterfalls... All the pictures I posted were taken at the Langley.

We spent 4 nights at Tainos coming straight from the airport with rental car-- not having been to Guadeloupe before and after a good deal of internet research. Our French is about as bad as bad can get but the owner knows English well enough to deal with people like us. The location and accommodations are truly unique, I'm not sure how one could be disappointed... The staff were pleasant, rooms clean and breakfast was always awesome. This kind of place requires that you be a bit of an adventurist in that you are easy to please since it's rustic and not entirely private (it is a rustic cottage, thin walled...). Not that hard to be in awe of the raw beauty of the location, setting, construction, woodwork, landscaping, beach, beach sound ;), quiet atmosphere and etc. In comparison to our stay at other equally priced places in Guadeloupe after this one, even with offering more amenities, I would still say Tainos is in a class of it's own! If you pair up Le Savane restaurant in Deshaies and this cottage, your stay should exceed all expectations. Also, Zoom Zoom, Tainos's own restaurant is very good but is limited in that it's open only a few nights a week and service is slow but good because of their kitchen size more or less.
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.
