Flamboyant Le Village
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
First and foremost this is not a Hotel in reality. It is a a collection of appartments that are mostly let out to permanent residents. The few appartments that are let out are intermingled with these permanent lets.The rooms are only serviced spasmodically, twice in the week we were there. The standard of maintenance is low, the toilet stack pipe in the first appartment we occupied was sealled with a plastic bag from the supermarket and black tape; the security lock for the sliding patio door was a length of wood inserted into the track.After 3 days we had to ask to be moved as 2 out of the 3 mornings there was insufficient water pressure to flush the toilet or take a shower. We were told that this was normal for St Martin and had to insist on being moved to a lower floor where we had no further problems, this took a one hour argument and a call to the travel company.There was only 1 restaurant, not 2 as advertised. The one that was open was only open Tuesday through Saturday (as was the Bar) and in reality was no more than a snack bar. The staff had the radio volume so high ear plugs would be advisable. The two pools were fine. Apart from this no facilities.The public areas are not well kept, dirty windows, doors off hinges etc.However the rooms are of good size and we found comfortable. Although positioned on the lagoon there is a good beach in easy walking distance along with a few decent restaurants. Plus Marigot is a short (€10) taxi ride away.Would we go again, probably not. Would this meet the standards expected by my friends in the USA, definately not. Basically 2 star establishement.
What was once a lovely Resort has turned into an sadly uncared for property. The rooms match the outside overall neglect. Total disregard from the Management, who seems to overlook even the minimum Security Rules; entry gates are out of service since ten month now !!!! How long can it take to repair or replace material ? This property is today a mixed privately owned + hotel room establishment, with owner paying high monthly property management fees. Where are these amounts flowing to ? There should be no excuse for the poor condition of the property. Tourists are getting rare, bad reviews understandable, but nothing seems to provoke the slightest efforts to host the small remaining clientele like it is supposed to ! Very sad when you know it would just take a few efforts to upgrade the property and make the Flamboyant shine again ! But…no illusions left, it looks like it is too late, the advice is to stay clear, other lovely places are around in Nettle Bay today who welcome the clientele with elegance and care.
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 !
