“Great location, a bit rustic”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2006

We stayed at Le Rotabas for 2 nights at the beginning of our stay in Guadeloupe. Double or triple occupancy rooms are clustered together in little cabins a bit reminiscent of YMCA camp, but with beautiful flowering plants in between. We had two adjoining rooms for our family of four. Our cabins were very basic, with single beds, and a bit dark. They were clean, however, and had good A/C, with we definitely appreciated. The breakfast area is very nice, colorfully painted and had freshly-baked rolls with a good variety of fruit. We took a look at the pool, but it looked kind of cloudy so we didn’t go in. It’s a short walk past some community building and along the shore to the very nice Caravelle beach where Club Med sits. I wouldn’t mind going back, but I’d check out other accommodations in the area as well -- it didn’t blow us away.

Our stay at Le Rotabas was thoroughly delightful. This small, charming family run hotel is located next door to the very large Club Med on Ste. Anne Beach. The hotel is simple, not a large luxurious "AI" as one finds so often these days. The family who runs the hotel takes great pride in making their guests feel at home and very welcome. The grounds are well cared for with beautiful tropical foliage and the hotel has a pleasant swimming pool area. Most of the guests who stayed at the hotel during our visit were from France, in fact, we were the only English speaking family. We were absolutely delighted to be staying in a true Creole inn, and enjoyed the idea that no one at the hotel, guests or staff, spoke much English (this is typical in Guadeloupe and Martinique). I speak passable French and my children were forced to use their school French. (I've given up on my husband speaking anything other than English). The highlight of my stay was when I was called upon to be the hotel's interpreter for some lost Americans. The rooms are neat, spacious, and very, very clean. There are garden bungalows, but we were not able to book one. We could easily walk along the beach into town, and the hotel is just steps away from the beach. We really enjoyed Guadeloupe and Martinique because they are not super touristy islands, and they are the best of both worlds - Caribbean and France! Should I return to Guadeloupe, the Hotel Le Rotabas would be the first place I would try to book.
