“Nice place to stay”
Reviewed 24 January 2014

Domaine de L `Anse Caritan is no longer a hotel but a Rental Resort.
Many of the studios have been sold, mostly to French retirees. The facility is very well maintained, it has a large pool, a gym, a bar with WIFI, laundry room. Otherwise it has no further service. Down at the beach, about 50m, is a beach bar, and next to it a good restaurant (bit expensive)
The state of the Rental studio, probably depends of the respective owner.
My studio was clean and equipped with all the necessity's. The kitchen is small but functional with all necessary equipment.,
At the end of your stay you have to return the studio in a clean state, or you pay something for the cleaner..
My landlady Marianne "mcplanet@yahoo.fr" was very helpful. She picked me up and drove me back to the airport.
I can very much recommend to stay there.

We booked this hotel for 12 nights. We were in the part of the residence named Les Hauts de Caritan.
The hotel is placed in a very beautiful and calm part of the island. There is a bar, restaurant and a beach club near by. The beach in this area is very sandy and good. The water is clear.
The hotel manager is very nice and helpful. he also is giving good hints about the island and what to see there.

Rooms are unfortunately cleaned only every 5th day of stay.
The hotel information at booking.com says, that internet is available on all areas. In fact, there is no internet in the rooms, only in the reception area.
In our room the air conditioner was placed directly over the bed.

The hotel is directly on the beach but it is necessary to have a car. Traveling without any own car is almost impossible. It is not a problem if you stay there for few days only but if you plan to visit some other beaches or cities, it is better to rent a car.

If you want a comfortable but affordable place to stay then this works well. St Anne is a great place to be in Martinique with great beaches close by (need a rental car for beaches out of St Anne though) and a quaint village to eat and shop in. The rooms aren't flash but they were all we needed. The kitchenette is off the balcony which makes cooking hot work, but fun too. Ask Joel for extra bits like corkscrew and sharp knives etc. Pool and beach was a short walk from our room but still OK. The big asset of the place is Joel. Thankfully for us he spoke English, which helped immensley with booking taxis, arranging rental cars and helping us sort out ferry bookings. He was pleasant and went out of his way to help us and make sure everything was OK, he was like our personal assistant.

Room Tip: Sea view is best

On the good side: beautiful setting and views, nice beach and pool, rooms in good shape, food OK, little water park for kids that provides supervision, convenient to Ste Anne and Salines Beach. The bad side outweighs the good: very expensive, staff unhelpful to the point of creative rudeness, rooms bare except for uncomfortable beds and inadequate kitchenettes, no housekeeping, no internet access. In general, not much service of any sort. (The front desk wouldn't even change currency or sell postage stamps.) No way is this a three-star hotel in the European or North American sense. Maybe 1.5 stars.

Have been meaning to write a quick note for a long time.

This experience was a real disppointment given how much we paid for this trip.

The accomodation and fittings were grubby, dirty and stained actually, and sub-standard: certainly not what one would expect from a three star hotel.

Too few overstretched staff were serving large groups of tourists. Staff tried to cope but situation was hopeless. Food not good. Wait for food service was constantly very long.

Was eaten alive by mosquitos around the pool.

Overall, such a shame as Martinique is a lovely, green island and great for a visit. Sadly, Martinique compared very unfavourably to two previous experiences in Barbados. We will not rush to go again, and I would advise anyone to take care to avoid this hotel.

This was our third time staying at the Anse Caritan in Sainte-Anne, Martinique. It was a complete disappointment. In the past, the accommodations, the food, and the staff were exceptional. All that has changed. From the time we checked in until we left, the staff was indifferent, almost to the point of arrogance. Breakfasts, which are included in the room rate, were much lower in quality than in the past, and frequently food would run out, with little explanation or no apology. The house keeping staff did not change linens or towels on any regular basis, then lied when they told us they were not permitted to change the bed sheets. (The pillows are about the size you find in airplane coach class.) Again, the front desk did little to rectify any difficulties. With a hotel with such problems and the high rates they charge for rooms, I would recommend that you look elsewhere to stay in this part of Martinique.

We have decided next visit to rent an apartment in town. There are good markets and food stores and there is easy proximity to the beaches and in particular, Salines, one of the most beautiful beaches we have ever seen.

The restaurants we ate at were all good, but two were exceptional. One was Le Touloulou, and the other, just a few steps away was La Case Philippe.
