Hotel Amaudo
Ranked #1 of 8 Hotels in Saint Francois
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 April 2011

If you looking to stay in Grand Tarre this is a great choice. The sea view room had a lovely view and a very nice private balcony. Breakfast was expensive, but, was also the best coffee I had the entire trip. Maybe go for breakfast one time, get your bearings in town, and then you'd be set for the trip. I wouldn't spend all of my time here as Basse Tarre felt like it had a bit more "going on" and added a great dimension to the trip. Le Poivrier in St. Francois was a nice dinner, and the lobster fricacie at Le Zagaya was at the top of the food list. The best court bullion (though simple and probably more suited to lunch) I had on the trip was at Cafe Zig Zag in St. F.

We had read the excellent reviews of Amaudo on Tripadvisor - and we weren't disappointed. The hotel is indeed nice, quiet and clean. A few things were missing though. Strangely enough, there are no sun parasols (not sure if this is the correct term) by the pool - and the trees only give limited shade. If you, like us, come straight from Northern Europe or the northern US, you are almost bound to get a sunburn at Amaudo's (otherwise very nice) pool. Also, the place has a very nice bar-type area where they serve good breakfasts. However, that's it. You cannot buy a drink there, or a sandwich or whatever else you might fancy while lying by the pool. Another minor insufficiency are the TVs. Our TV old and around 17" (I think). These days, with larger flatscreens being so affordable, that's a bit cheap. Also, finding the place was a hassle. It wasn't too difficult to find the road that the hotel is on - but there are no indications whatsoever once you get to the hotel. We were told that an old sign apparently says "Amaudo", but even in daylight, you don't notice the sign, and even if you do, it is impossible to see what it says. Fix those things, and the place will be basically perfect. I should add that the two caretakers were very attentive and nice. If it wasn't for them, I would probably have given Amaudo four stars and not five. In any case, I would definitely recommend to the place to my friends and I would stay there again (although staying on the more mountanous other half of the island makes where most excursions go to makes more sense).

This is the best place on Guadeloupe! Our stay at Amaudo was so memorable...The rooms and grounds are so clean, with balconies overlooking the ocean..Ahh, the sweet ocean air..It's quiet and serene..The infinity pool is the most beautiful! So refreshing overlooking the ocean..The breakfasts are abundant with fresh tropical fruits, and awesome breads..The hosts Betty and Francis are ever so alert to your needs...While Betty is taking care of details, Francis is continously making you laugh..They truly go the extra mile in making your stay comfortable...Amaudo actually feels like a B&B more than a hotel....I would definately return...Oh..Ask Betty to set you up for a massage! She will come to you and she's great!!

I stayed at the Amaudo hotel for a full week with my mother. Every aspect was great: the room was beautiful and clean with a wonderful view, the infinity pool had an amazing view on the ocean, the breakfast was delicious. But perhaps what made this hotel different for us were the hotel caretakers Francis and Betty. Both were very welcoming and provided us with much useful information on the island. Francis took the time to sit with me and make a number of suggestions as to what was worth visiting, best beaches, etc.

One thing is that, as others pointed out, you do need a rental car to get around on the island and from the hotel. But this was fine with us since it provided the opportunity to get to know the culture better and visit different areas (something you don't often get to do when staying in a all-inclusive resort). We loved Amaudo and were a bit sad to leave their grounds and say good bye to Francis and Betty. But we will be back!

Our stay is Amaudo hotel was perfect!

Thanks to Trip Advisor, we found this delightful hotel! We loved our room with its ocean-facing balcony; the room was spotless and nicely appointed with a modern shower and bath. We loved the infinity pool. And the delicious french breakfasts with the view will stay in our memories. (The breakfasts were just like those we had in France, with the exception of tropical fruit, Betty and Francois and the view!) Betty and Francois were hospitable in every way. Betty was extraordinarily helpful--even with my baby French--and went out of her way to answer each of my questions. They--and the owners and each of the staff--were friendly and made us feel very welcome. As everyone said, Guadaloupe is a French Island and almost everyone we met spoke French (and not English). The restaurants were superb--we had such good food! We traveled around the island (both halves) in our rental car and the scenery is magnifique!
We will return. We loved both the hotel and Guadaloupe.

Everything is ok with this hotel. I really can't find anything to complain.
The room (n° 6) was one of the largest I have ever seen, very clean and with a large terrace.
Breakfast is delicous, full of every kind of fresh tropical fruit. View is fantastic from every room.
Maybe the only weak point is a communication door (well closed, of course) with the next room, so you can hear something from the neighbours, but it is a very little problem.
Saint Francois, where there are many restaurants, is five-minute-drive from the Hotel, such as many beaches.
