This was one of the worst hotel experiences I've ever had. It was bad enough that I left after a single night.Good:*Car rental, after paying $70 to get from the airport to the hotel via a cab we decided to rent a car. The hotel had an on site rental office, and the woman was nice and even dropped us off at the airport when we returned the car. High point of the visit. (she even commented that the quality of the hotel has gone down, and regular long term guests were even booking elsewhere)*HUGE roomUGLY:*Booked a room with a King size bed what we got two twin beds pushed together, each had its own set of sheets. Trying to sleep with another person resulted in the beds sliding apart and someone falling in between.*Booked an ocean view room, got a room with a view of the parking lot, a road, another resort, then a little sliver of the ocean.*mattresses were practically non existent, it was like sleeping on a camping pad*two towels in a room with two adults, had to use the same towel for showering, the beach and the pool, requests for more towels were refused*no maid service, coming back to the hotel after a long day to find the beds were unmade. Was told by management that they only clean the rooms between guests or once a week.*Broken shower - shower head was pointed back at the wall it was attached to, attempts to aim it in a different direction resulted in a pressure drop and water spraying in all directions from the hose. It was possible to shower, but not without extreme difficulty.All of these negatives resulted in us leaving and getting a room at a different hotel.I'd recommend avoiding this hotel. If it was a third the price, it might have been a decent budget hotel. At the current price point you can find much better elsewhere.
Great Resort near the Laguna of Nettle Bay. Big parking, little beach with a restaurant/bar and 2 pool in the complex.Le Flamboyant is between Marigot and Simpson Bay, and which of them are really close with the car.
This Resort was a lovely place to spend a vacation. BUT these days are long gone. GONE is also the lovely clientele it used to seduce… The property lost since a while the title of Resort, and became “Village Condominium” with low rates. The place is old, shabby rooms that smell of dust and mold, no renovations ever done. No service, no guest reception, no wifi in rooms even if you pay for it, the connection works when lucky only in lobby. Property rules and management are totally absent.One understands why this year no more American or European are amongst the guests !!The place has turned into a children’s holiday camp for the Guadeloupian community. It is easy to understand what the outcome is: a 24 hour noizy nightmare for everyone else who was hoping to find a serene retreat for a vacation.What a shame, this place had such great potential. We would not stay there for free !
Not the best and not the worst. Chose this at the last minute and it was okay. Let's start:SERVICE- Not the best at all. Front desk upon arrival looks closed and it took us a few to figure out check in was in a room next to front desk doors closed with no sign stating this is check in area. Guy was pleasant, but engulfed in soccer or television. He gave us a map and showed us pool area, bar/restaurant, room and let us know restaurant is closed Sunday/Monday. Other important info about getting around and hours front desk operates was not included nor was letting us know about room or outlets and other information for a tourist from another country. We went to ask questions and everything was shut down so we were on our own until the next day.ROOM- booked an ocean view suite and guy at front desk let us know we were getting something close to it. The beach was not a beach, but a lagoon.We had a view of the pool to compensate. Room service was every 3 days so we had to maintain with what we had. We inquired about beach towels and that is found at front desk. One person per day. Kitchen was on the outside balcony of the room that also gives you a view of everyone else's kitchen. No privacy unless you keep curtains closed.A sheer one should be added so that light can enter room.Using lamps duirng the day, staying in the dark with curtains closed or opening curtain allowing everyone to look in wasn't the best.I guess it depends on room location where you can get privacy. Bathroom was nice and spacious and if amenities ran out, you just had to make do with what you had or go out and buy unless you can catch front desk person in room for more.FOOD- Did not dine in restaurant. French bakery on corner right outside of hotel was sandwiches, wraps and salads w tasty bread, drinks, coffee and water and across the street you had a fabulous Italian restaurant which was on Nettle bay with a great view and small beach. Busy location as its only restaurant in that area. Food was excellent there-try the truffle pasta. You can get lolo if you take a taxi to other areas-Marigot and Grand case is highly recommended. We went to Bai Rouge and Chez Raymond is lolo and very good.LOCATION- French side of the island. Nettle Bay is where you can find a small beach Bai Rouge(Red Bay) and its walking distance if you don't mind walking about 10 minutes along side the road. You can take a taxi there and ride would be like 5 minutes. Gorgeous beach and only place to eat is Chez Raymond, but you will not be disappointed at all with food and service.TOUR- Went on a tour to see more of the island and it was lovely. If you can book with people who offer tour rather than site that books tour for them, do that and support their hustle. I booked through a company which wasn't bad, but I didn't do research. Captain Samy was excellent and if you can get him as a tour guide, you will enjoy it very much. Olivia is who you can ask for and she will help you with everything you need to know from food to nightlife. Make sure you see Maho beach plane landing/takeoff!NIGHTLIFE- Not much to do in the area so you would have to take a taxi to Simpson Bay, Mullet Bay and other areas where you can find excitement. Maho Beach area, Orient Bay also have things to do at nightOVERALL- I would recommend this place if you have a car rental and don't plan to stay. You won't get great help at all with great information, but everything outside hotel is more helpful.I plan to visit and stay elsewhere to make up for the bad part of trip. Places like this can kill it for someone who enjoys traveling such as myself and discourage me from visiting island again. I cannot fault one not so great experience for the rest of the beauty I received. Also, if you need a taxi and tour guide, please reach out to Uncle Al Taxi 372 firstname.lastname@example.org or 1 721580 9056 He can show you around and help you out tremendously.
I usually am not making reviews, since I usually thinks everything is said, but not in this case. We were there only one night between flights. When we got there, the attention of the guy at the reception (by the way, there was no real reception which seemed closed for a long time, only a guy in a desk) dramatically went down when he realized we were there for only a night. Once we got to the room, it smelled dust and mold. The place was really dirty: juice form meat on the counter of the kitchen (it was groce), stains from fingers everywhere on the fridge, walls, doors, light switches, etc the shower curtain dirty with dried soap, etc. old and broken furniture, bad repairs on walls, etc. at least the floor was clean and the sheets in the bed were too. I travel a lot and I don't mind if it is worn, as long as it is clean. This place was not. We went around the hotel and what we saw is that there are some other rooms that seems to be owned by people (like written in other reviews), and the are well maintained. They seems to rent the old rooms not owned by anyone. Chose somewhere else, not this place.
