“Nice place....”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

Nice hotel located a 5 minute walk from Grande Anse Beach and a 5 minute drive from the center of the village of Deshaies.

The hotel has convenient and abundant parking and a nice pool right at the entrance. The rooms are clean, well appointed and comfortable with kitchenettes that are convenient for fixing something up for yourself if you get tired of restaurants. There is also a nice small restaurant where you can get a very decent continental breakfast for about 12 euros, which is a reasonable price for the island.

I would say that the only negatives would be that internet connection is only available at the front of the property in the immediate area around the registration office and that the property is built on a somewhat incline going up so anyone who has problems walking may have a tough time huffing and puffing to their room if they are towards the back.

Room Tip: Get a room as near to the registration office as possible to avoid the walk up the hill and to be as...

Our second accommodation in Guadeloupe. In walking distance to the beach and close to Deshaies where you can find a lot restaurants and shops. Everything was fine and in order, garden well maintained, nice pool. Breakfast was OK, staff was nice and reasonably English speaking.

We only stayed one night, but I could imagine to stay longer.The grounds are full of beautiful tropical plants and trees, what you can enjoy from your terace or balcony, where is also situated your kitchen.We had a room with semi-separated room for children. Everything was clean, bathroom was spacious and clean as well. We did not use the pool, as we preffered to spend the day on the nearby golden sand beach of Grande Anse.If you want a self-cattering, nice accomodation to relax on beach and to explore the island, this is a good place to stay.

Our six nights stay was all we could have wished for. Our apartment, which was close to the pool, was clean and cool, with an extra small bedroom that we used for storage. The bathroom was excellent with a good shower. The outside kitchen was entirely adequate for simple cooking. The most outstanding aspect of HGA was the garden setting, with palm trees and flowering shrubs between the apartments. The very fine beach 'Grande Anse' is less than a ten minute walk away, and there is a small 'convenience store' next to it. However a rental car is essential to make the most of the visit, as there is little to do nearby.

Room Tip: As for 'higher floor' if you want privacy, apartments near the pool/office if you want easy...

We stayed at the Habitation Grand Anse for six nights in March 2012. We had one of the more basic apartments (sleeping four) which provided plenty of space. It was all very clean –but we baulked at paying 10 euros extra a day for maid service so had just one clean up in the middle of our stay. The furniture in the room is a bit sparse but we ended up spending most of the time outside – there is nowhere to sit down inside so if you watch TV you have to lie on the bed. The kitchenette was well equipped and everything was good quality – lack of a kettle and tumblers the main things we thought were missing . Bed linen and towels are good quality and bathroom was spacious and well lit. We didn’t find the bed very comfortable (foam mattress). There is air conditioning, but no fan – if you are in a downstairs apartment there wasn’t much night time breeze and there were security warnings about leaving doors open.

Negatives are the noise from the close proximity of other families – sometimes our neighbours were up at 6am and the children were pretty noisy. The air conditioning units for other apartments also generated a constant night-time hum. The tiled floors mean that you can hear furniture scraping upstairs or in any of the close by kitchens. Positives are that the hotel is a short walk from the fabulous Grand Anse beach (where parking can be a nightmare at weekends) and the gardens are lovely, wi-fi is free and hardly anyone uses the swimming pool so occasionally we had it to ourselves.
We did one big shop at Ed’s supermarket nearby and topped up from the Casino in the village. We found everything we needed and everyone was very helpful. There is a great walk from Deshaies to Grand Anse.
We didn't try the hotel's own restaurant - it was constantly fully booked!

Room Tip: As for an upstairs studio with a balcony.

We arrived at midnight and were so happy to find this lovely spot. It smelled sweet and tree frogs were singing. I was nursing a bad knee and was happy to be in chambre 1,,,altho we missed the ocean view that come with the higher placed apartments...Ask for them at booking ! they are gone when you arrive. Loved the complete outside kitchen/patio... We had leisurely mornings cooking breakfasts, writing, feeding and photographing the birds, lounging by the pool ... people smile, but no instant friends.
The shower by the pool has a hairdryer ! Internet only accessible here by pool or office...by 11 am every day we were off and exploring Basse Terre and Grande Terre.... there are several lovely beaches besides La Grande Anse.... you can go to a different beach every day. We were here during high season, but we would often be two of 6 people on a nice stretch.... the surf can be bossy... I injured my good knee the first day there..so joy riding thru the jungle became a great sitting down kind of fun... when u go to Grande Anse, Le Karacoli restarant to the right had great food and beach chairs... very relaxing... spend the day.. restaurant here At HGA was fabulous, but a limited bar......staff helpful,evening waitress a delight...

Room Tip: If you are willing to climb stairs, ask for a room with view of the ocean...

Stayed in one of a studio grand large here for four nights. It was a great stay and totally met our needs! The grounds are beautiful here and the rooms are spread out up and along the hill on which HGA is situated. The room was comfortable with a nice large bathroom. The room included bunkbeds for children, which we did not use. The patio overlooking the hotel's grounds was great and the kitchen looked very good for anyone who wishes to eat in. HGA's front desk staff was extremely friendly and attentive, answering all of our questions in either French or English (whichever we preferred) and ensuring that our stay was a comfortable one. It's not the height of luxury, but it's a great home base for anyone looking for a well-situated, clean, quiet and quality place in Deshaies. Grand Anse beach is located just across the road from HGA, so that is a big plus as well! AC in the room was welcomed; however, guests should note that room service is only once a week here.
