We needed to spend one night in Guadeloupe before meeting our friends on their boat and chose this one. What a mistake. Very poor value for money.Hard bed with cheap foam pillows.
an experience that I want to forget.
Beware: taxis are very expensive: it cost 30 euros to get to the hotel from the airport.

I spent three nights at Village Soleil while visiting my son at the nearby campus. It is a bit of a shock when you enter to see that the restaurant, destroyed by fire a few months ago, is still covered in tarpaulins with no signs of the wreckage being cleaned up. Breakfast is now served poolside. The view overlooking the marina is fine but the rooms are nothing to get excited about. The bathrooms have been revamped and the mattresses are good but it is impossible to watch the television in bed because it is screwed to the same wall as the bedheads. The little kitchen terrace is handy except that there is hardly any cutlery, no coffee machine and it was difficult to know when the hotplates were on or off. Difficult to get a sufficient amount of towels. But the room was spotless and the air-conditioner worked.
My rental car got knocked in the hotel's closed parking lot. It was right in front of the reception area but no one saw anything. Not a pleasant experience.

Stayed a couple of nights in this hotel before moving over to the other side of the island. This hotel is reasonable for the price, clean for the most part, but the entire property is tired and in need of significant renovation/update.

The location is convenient to the main road out from PtP toward the tourist side of the island. A good hotel for the day your arrive and maybe one or two more -- easy to find, (signs direction Gosier, turn toward the Marina, turn left up the hill as you come to the Champion market), easy to walk down the hill to the 10 or so reasonable restaurants, and great if you are leaving on a boat.

The property is a bit spread out and hilly. Parking is centralized and safe inside a gate, but the walk to the rooms is not always easy -- particularly the first time The staff is very nice and friendly, english is limited (not problem to me as I speak French), the wifi only works in the lobby and then it is not very good. Rooms are a bit dark but the AC worked, there is a refrigerator and a sink, fixtures in the bath are old, and the shower slippery.

Breakfast is cheap and not all that interesting -- very basic and nothing special in presentation. I did partake but wondered if I would have been better walking the 3 minutes down to the Marina to find a better meal.

Classic case of you get what you pay for -- no huge complaints but not a place to stay for any length of time -- it is Caribbean tired.

This hotel is located on a hillside above the Bas Du Fort Marina, in Pointe a Pitre. (Turn left at the Champion and go up the hill.) It's location makes it perfect for sailors who are more concerned about the proximity to the marina, than the lack of high level amenities. The hotel has everything you'll need to be comfortable, but it is old and a bit neglected (in the Caribbean way).

We reserved two superior rooms via their web site form. They did not respond to emails. Confirmation came within minutes of submitting the form.

The superior rooms had a very nice view of the marina and harbor (I'm guessing this is what makes them "superior") w/ kitchenette on the large balcony. The rooms were average size, excepting the large kit/balcony, clean and nothing fancy at all. The AC and TV (French only) worked fine, a decent king bed, and a good bathroom round up the amenities.

There was adequate & free parking for our rental car in their gated lot. Some of the rooms would be a tough walk including lots of stairs from the parking if you were carrying large bags.

We bought the breakfast at the time of our room reservation and were quite happy with it. Nice, self-service selection of pastries, fruits, juices, cereals, and coffee. Pleasent location at the poolside. Other than breakfast, there was no restaurant, or bar, nor food or beverages for sale onsite.

It was a short walk down the hill to the marina with it's many good resturants and Champion grocery store.

The few staff we interacted with were all very helpful and while not speaking much English we were able to get our questions answered with a fun mix of our English, Spanish & poor French.
I'd stay here again if sailing out of this Marina; but this is not a luxury vacation resort.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights prior to a week's sailing with friends. We reserved a middle range room with breakfast included at 114 Euro. Not exactly a bargain, but seems par for the course in the area..

Room was a decent size, with comfy double bed and bedside tables and lamps. Desk with chair, a coffee table and small sofa completed furnishings. Small kitchenette off to one side, with stove top, fridge, sink and basic utensils and crockery. We did not use this. There was a TV, but we did not use it, partly because the rather complicated looking instructions were in French. A balcony overlooked the attractive central courtyard/garden area and had a table and chairs. There was a metal blind for security.

Bathroom was a good size, but a bit basic, although it did have a bidet. The bath was very slippery at the stepping in end, but water was hot and plentiful. Soap and small bottles of shampoo, OK towels.

Breakfast was a self service continental buffet in the main dining area (not sure if it was used for any other meals), overseen by a very imposing and efficient manager. Some cereals, lots of fresh fruit, bread rolls and various croissants. Ham, cheese, yoghurt, tea, coffee and juices. Nothing outstanding, but pleasant to be in the open sided room looking over the pool, marina and water.

The reception staff were very helpful, and with their limited English and my limited French we managed to get things done. There is free wi-fi in the reception area and a room to leave bags after checkout if necessary. There is also a shower room for the same purpose.

The hotel location is what makes it, especially if you are sailing to or from the Marina. Lots of bars and restaurants withing walking distance down the hill, as well as a reasonably well stocked supermarket. Remember that no cab drivers seem to carry any small change, so your fare will always cost you 10, 20 or 30 Euro, depending on what you have in your wallet.

If you have reasonably low expectations and need to be near the Marina, this is the best, if not the ideal, place to stay.
