“Stylish and luxurious”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

We stayed 3 nights at La Suite Villa in the Nougat Pistache suite. The room was very charming, with a sea view and a large soaker bath on the open balcony. Real linen sheets, original art work and vintage chandeliers added to the uniqueness and charm. Each of the owners greeted us personally, and all took great pride in the property. Attention to detail is evident throughout. We will be back.

If you're planning on taking the hotel for the honeymoon advantages, don't bother.
If you're not asking for them - which we didn't except for the free dinner which we asked for - you're likely not going to get them (room upgrade, bottle champagne nor a present for the two of you).

Good reception on arrival, no welcome drink
We had room Dragibus, very nice view over the ocean, but no terrace; a bit noisy in the evening and morning starting at 6am because room is located above restaurant and pool area.
Small swimming pool with bar; only 3 or 4 sunbeds; no private hotel beach.
Below (steep hill, 15-20 min walk) at the public beach possibility to drink and eat.
The restaurant is very nice, maybe the card is a bit too limited. Breakfast is served at the table, so you need to ask for everything, which is annoying if you're on a schedule for an excursion.
You don't need a car to eat outside of the hotel, reach the town, ... if you don't mind the 15-20 min walk.

We met a French couple that stayed in 2 star hotel Bambou who were more enthusiastic about their hotel than we were about the 4 star hotel; and to be honest, we are not that demanding, but compared to other hotels...

One of the few really good hotels on Martinique, La Suite Villa was a brilliant choice for my family of four. We stayed in a 2 bedroom cottage which was very well equipped, clean, modern and well designed. Breakfast was included in the rate and that was excellent. Manon dealt with our reservation (and our poor French) and was extremely helpful. The Zandoli Restaurant is very good, but the cuisine is somewhat sophisticated for children - a few choices geared towards kids would be a bonus. We will definitely stay here again.

What a gorgeous place! La Suite Villa is a destination in itself. Every corner is beautifully appointed, tastefully and with fun. Rooms are smaller in the main building, villas are huge. We stayed in both; we find main building accommodations simply unique. Needless to say, clean and efficiently cleaned every day by the time you return back from the beach (but not sterile, normal tear and wear might show here and there, no disappointment though). Staff is incredible; everybody is friendly, patient to ones poor French and willing to make your stay enjoyable. Anything and everything is done immediately, should you only ask. In reality there is not much to ask for as every need is foreseen and satisfied. Owners are making it a point to make you feel welcome and at home, no expense is spared. Still, there is no feeling of Bed and Breakfast, where you are forced to hide from excessive attention of owners. Quite opposite: the owners are a great couple, educated, smart, funny, a pleasure to be around - somebody whom you would want to be friends with in your everyday life. Management stops at nothing to satisfy any request and help make your stay a real holiday.
The restaurant Le Zandoli is above and beyond any dream. ALL the dishes were outstanding, deserts to die for, presentation exceptional, the chef is easily one of the best on this Earth. And again – there is no “no”. You want foie gras – they will fly it for you from France. Service at the restaurant is impeccable, but not official, rather very personable. Delicious breakfasts and every dinner – an event to look forward to.
Martinique is a beautiful island, with many things to see, nice shopping, wonderful restaurants. A car is a must, but to be honest, we enjoyed La Suite Villa so much that hardly wanted to go anywhere else.

There is very little to add to what all the recent reviews say about this hotel, as I agree with almost everything that has been said about the accommodation, the excellent staff and its top quality in-house restaurant. But in some ways it is a triumph of style over substance for which one is charged a very considerable premium. And our room, actually in the hotel rather than outside in a villa, was not the most expensive. Yet despite the high room rates there is a surcharge for any coffee/tea used in the room - cheeky!
A word of warning. The hotel's location at the top of a long and steep hill does mean there are very good views across the bay to Fort de France but, it also means a very strenuous walk to the local beaches. And even if you have a car, parking near the beaches is a nightmare.

Room Tip: The rooms in the hotel have the better views; the villa accommodation in the grounds less so.

This is a diamond - and not in the rough - hotel. It is loaded with modern impressionist art and the design of this hotel and the spaces within are absolutely mind blowing. The restaurant is one of the finest on this island.
If there are any drawbacks, it is not close to any beach. The closes shopping is about a good 20 minute walk down a substantial hill (and up this hill upon return). A car is a must since taxis are very expensive on Martinique.

Room Tip: Rent a car

My wife and I recently stayed at La Suite Villa for six nights over the Christmas holiday. Overall, we were very pleased with our visit, and I would highly recommend La Suite Villa to others contemplating a visit to Martinique. A few particulars:

1. The staff is excellent. Everyone is friendly, welcoming and accommodating. The owners went out of their way to accommodate our travel schedule. They arranged for a car to pick my wife and I up at midnight, and one of the owners was there waiting to greet us upon our arrival to carry our bags to the room and explain the hotel. Furthermore, we had a very early departure flight, and accordingly, the owners took time from their dinner hosting activities (a solid 30 minute, friendly conversation) to check us out early, discuss our stay and arrange for an early breakfast. Whenever an issue arose (whether it was the rental car charging us twice, etc…), the staff were happy to assist.

2. We stayed in a mini-suite in the main complex (La Suite Villa consists of six suites in the main complex and numerous, larger villas on the hill below). The room was small, but adequate. I fear that a six-foot plus individual may feel cramped in the shower and toilet (due to the sloping walls), but it was fine for my wife and I. With that said, the room had very large windows with a million dollar view of Fort-de-France. It was a real pleasure waking up each morning to such a view. The hotel itself is very stylish (bordering on to stylish for my tastes). It is an extremely unique atmoshphere (one that I will not soon forget!)

3. La Suite Villa offers a complimentary breakfast each morning (both cold (bread, pastries, yogurt, cereal, cheese, etc..) and warm (ham, eggs, etc..) foods). It was an excellent start to each day.

4. If you are to visit Martinique, I highly recommend renting a car. Martinique (unlike St. Barts and St. Marten) is an enormous island. It takes you hours to drive from the north to the south of the island. Hence, in order to fully appreciate the island, do rent a car. If you do, La Suite Villa has a convenient, gated parking lot below the villas.

5. La Suite Villa has an excellent restaurant – Le Zandoli. The vast majority of the courses were prepared to near perfection (absent one or two meat dishes), and the desserts were beautiful and delicious. It is very convenient (after a long day at the beach) to simply walk down the stairs to one of the nicest restaurants on the island (and based upon my experience, in the Caribbean). The chef produced works of art (it was a real treat to eat at such a restuarant).

6. In the end, I had only three complaints. First, the safe in our room was broken. We informed the staff, and they said that a technician was required to fix it. Unfortunately, it was never fixed (but it was the holiday season - so I understand). Second (and this is more of a complaint with the island), very little English is spoken. I can only speak a little French (based upon my high school days). Therefore, our language skills were tested (and we have been to St. Barts, St. Marten and France). With that said, a few of the staff spoke very good English, and those who did not were extremely patient with my poor French. We had fun trying to communicate (but at times, it was stressful). Lastly (and I am being picky here), the sheets, while clean, were slightly discolored and stained in certain areas, and the chairs outside our room (on the third floor) were torn and dirty looking. With the amount of money being spent each night, I would typically expect clean/new linens and decent chairs. But again, I am searching for criticisms.

Overall, we were very pleased with our stay. If we return to Martinique, I am confident we will stay at La Suite Villa and dine at Le Zandoli. The owners and staff really go out of their way to make you feel at home during your stay. I highly recommend La Suite Villa.
