A good business man never mix business and pleasure, but in the other hand the comfort and relaxation is extremely important after a hard day of work. As a business man and an entrepreneur I travel a lot in the US and outside the US and the first criteria I consider when I’m looking for a hotel are, Good customer service, luxury, and simplicity.
In 2013, I was in Haiti working for Benjamin Contractor a small construction Company. Duing my time in Haiti I went to supervise a construction site in Anse-a-Veau about 2h from Port-Au- Prince. On my way back to Port-Au-Price I was exhausted, I decided to stop for a moment and spend the night on a hotel. Since I was new the area I did what any smart business man would do, I called someone I know that can refer me to a good hotel.
I was referred to Hotel Florita in Jacmel. When I called the Hotel I had the extreme pleasure to speak with the hotel manager Jean Ruid Senatus. Who gave me specific information and direction how to get to the hotel from my location. When I got to the Hotel on Thursday night I received a high quality service, the check in process was professional and transparent. The room was extremely clean and the manager was very concerned about my demanded. I was supposed to go back to Port-Au-Prince the next day but I decided to cancel everything I had on my agenda and spent the rest of the weekend in Hotel Florita. I end up staying for 4 days, and I can testify that the place and the service are unique. It is unfortunate that the is not a Hotel Florita in every other country or state. A hotel manager like Jean Ruid Senatus, because that will be my first and only choice. No matter who you are or where you came from if you are in Haiti I highly recommended Hotel Florita in Jacmel. Your experience will be unspeakable happiness.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The finest house in Jacmel. Built in 1888 in "New Orleans" style. Furnished with antiques--art is everywhere. The best restaurant and bar in town--by far. Jacmel is the safest and most charming town in Haiti--and Haiti has always been the most interesting country in the Caribbean for sophisticated travelers. The Hotel Florita is the only 19th Century house that is as it still in daily use. It is an opportunity to see what life in Jacmel was like for the coffee merchants a hundred years ago. Jacmel was built on coffee--the cash crop of subsistence farmers in the mountains--and still has the best coffee anywhere. We now have a pool and will take you to any local beach--and pick you up as well. We arrange for you to get picked up at the airport--or exactly how to take local transportation to get here. We arrange excursions and do whatever we can to make your visit to Jacmel memorably pleasant. We have a large and comfortable restaurant and bar.
