We stayed for a long weekend at La Metisse. The room was clean and the owners were really friendly, going out of their way to speak English to us, although we do speak French. The furniture looks a bit dated and the shower is not all that, but the fresh breakfast in the morning makes up for everything. Fresh fruits... More

Staff was very welcoming. Room and bathroom was very clean . A very small intimate well relaxed hotel. Pool right outside your room. Which is lovely, because it's always hot in Guadeloupe. Travel tip : when traveling to Guadeloupe learn some basic French words 1st.

We had a wonderful stay with Mr. and Mrs. Grelaud, who were very friendly and welcoming. They really go out of their way to make sure you have a good time. The rooms are very clean. The breakfast was simply superb. Very peaceful setting and perfectly quiet nights. From now on, this is where we stay when in Guadeloupe.

We stayed here for nearly 2 weeks. It's amazing. Fabienne and Sebastien are fantastic hosts. The room was lovely and the breakfast yummy (I know, awful phrase). Our French is appalling but we managed as Fabienne and Sebastien both speak English and have a sense of humour (completely necessary with my poor language skills)! I cannot recommend this hotel enough.

Hotel feels more like a B&B - 7 rooms, small, quaint environment. Super relaxing and comfortable. Private patio with each room. Superb breakfast. Sebastien and Fabienne are wonderful, helpful, and charming. Great location to get to beaches and St Francois. Bathrooms could use some updating, but they are clean and work well.

We spent 3 days at La Metisse. Fabienne & Sebastian are warm, welcoming wonderful hosts. The setting is lovely with rooms opening up onto a pool. We opted for breakfast with fruit, delicious cafe and pasteries at our table just outside our room. The hotel is small, just 7 rooms. The whole setting was a little bit of heaven. Only... More

Recently visited Hotel La Metisse in January, 2016. We could not speak more highly of this hotel/ bed & breakfast! My fiancée and I can only speak few words in French, which made the travel slightly more complicated. However, the trip was amazing, and we wanted to leave a review for future individuals interested in exploring Guadeloupe with limited French.... More
