I stayed at Auberge de la Vieille Tour 2 different nights in a week, and I almost felt like home ! The staff at reception is adorable, warm and professional. The view is breathtaking, the food really good - lunch, diner or the very complete and nice morning buffet. Anselme the barman makes up special cocktails, every day a different one, and is very friendly. Oh ! and the view...
The rooms also are great, with enough space, very comfortable beds, tea/ coffee and a minibar. Hard to leave them, but there is a nice little beach waiting for us !
At the beauty salon, they were already fully booked butnicely arranged for a massage in my room with an external, very professional masseur, whose service was well appreciated.
What more can I say... I loved this place and cannot wait to come back !
We booked this hotel for one night prior to an 8am flight the next day and were quite satisfied. There were several different restaurants just down the hill that were convenient. Not being sure about how to get to the airport, we did a "dry run" the day before and were glad we did. The signs were a bit confusing!
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here. The pool area is wonderful. The neighborhood is within walking distance of a beach and neat restaurants and a great overlook to watch the pelicans diving.

Overall we had a pretty good experience. The hotel is very pretty and also well kept. I really enjoyed the private beach and the amazing swimming pool. There wasn't much entertainment at our hotel but we were able to rely on a cab to take us to other places. The only issue i had was the low flow of air coming from our A/C unit. We mentioned it to the front desk but i didnt see a change in the result. Overall we had a great time on our excursion. MARC, our tour guide was amazing. I highly recommend him if you decide to visit the other parts of the country. I can definitely see myself coming back to this hotel.
"Nice location but this hotel needs to be updated"
It might have been a nice hotel....20 years ago. Swimming pool was off for two days (pump issue), our minibar and other appliance were broken. Pool side is dangerous. Not up to a standard to receive american clients.
Ongoing renovations, but still nice. Relatively quiet, but some weekdays awakened early by noise at next resort over. Okay mattress, but nearing time to replace. A/C just right for February. Always hot water in shower, but low pressure. Elevators intermittent, okay for me (liked the exercise) but slippery tile when raining & not ideal for handicapped or luggage. Buffet dinner seemed a bit pricey, especially for late flight arrival & no less expensive option on site. Overall, I'd consider staying again.
This hotel was exactly what I needed, a place to relax and unwind. The accommodations are all separate and secluded and each has its own kitchen and private outdoor deck. The French-Creole hotel restaurant Is above average. The hotel staff are responsive, happy and eager to please. Spa services are exceptional and the gym is well-equipped. If you're looking for nightlife and a clubby atmosphere, you'll need to go away from La Toubana. I like that the hotel doesn't in any way cater to English speaking tourists. Most guests seem to come from France or other francophone countries. There is no gift shop. If you're not in good shape physically, one drawback could be the need to walk up and down very steep inclines in order to get around the property. Also, aside from the beach and the pool, there are no real activities for children - so leave them at home.
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.
