We were there with our son (3), we had a junior suite. Very nice room, enough space, 2 bathrooms, kitchen on the balcony, but not enough cooking ustensilles.

Residence La Goelette has so much potential. Really wanted to like it better, but the truth is that it's seen much better days. That said, a hotel being run down is not in and of itself a big deal: We knew this wasn't a luxury hotel when we booked, and we've done enough traveling not to expect a sterile American-style...

We had bigger room with view on the ocean and it more than fulfilled our expectations. Bathroom, bedroom was clean, kitchenette fine for basic cooking. Very calm location, still few minutes from the beach. Bakery and restaurants are close as well cca 5 min walking along the beach. Good location especially if you want to travel around Martinique and make...

The location is great, but the hotel seems a bit run-down. There is a loose railing in the swimming pool that is a major safety hazard. It was not as pretty in real life as it is in the pictures. Wifi was only available in the lobby. That being said the view is lovely, the small kitchen was useful for...

This property seem to be a time-share of sorts so all the rooms may not be the same. Our room on third floor had a nice set up but with a few drawbacks. Our bed was as firm as could be and no doubt it along with our pillows has long since exceeded its life expectancy. I am not sure...

This is no longer a hotel, but was sold off as residences and there are just a few rooms left that are used as hotel rooms. There is no restaurant and the whole complex is very empty, the elevators are broken and the rooms smell musty, the beds are hard and walls are dirty with chipped off paint. Overall everything...
