My husband and I stayed at Amaudo for our honeymoon. It was just what we were looking for - perfect comfort without unnecessary touristy luxuries. The rooms were clean and pretty, and the balcony gave a gorgeous view of the nearby cove. The managers Bettye and Francis really added to the pleasure of the stay. Francis drove us to the local car rental agency and gave us a driven tour of St. Francis. They recommended great restaurants, and they called a fabulous scuba dive place, Les Heures Saines, to make a reservation for us.
3 things to note: 1) you must speak adequate French to get by in Guadeloupe 2) you must have a car to stay at Amaudo (we took a taxi there, and Francis helped us rent one the next day) 3) there is a secluded beach cove near the hotel, but the path leading to it is steep and unpleasant (do not attempt after sundown). We chose to drive to nearby beaches instead.
I was actually happy about having to rent a car because then the entire island was available to us, and we drove to different parts every day of our trip.
Because this place is secluded, this is a great place for a quiet honeymoon or a family vacation, but not good if you want some nightlife.
