Canella Beach is a solid 3 star resort and a great value . It has a wonderful beach front - with great lounges & umbrellas, access to a tasty snack shop, and is cleaned & groomed every morning. The rooms are most comfortable & roomy Every room has a kitchenette which is a nice feature. The grounds/ gardens are well maintained & nicely planted with tropical plantings. The pool is good size, surrounded by nice pool lounges & also offers a hot tub. The hotel provides plush beach towels for their guests. A most complete breakfast buffet is included in the room rate- and includes fresh local fruits, pane au chocolat, croissants, & french rolls- and toast- as well as eggs (scrambled soft boiled or hard boiled), breakfast meats, brie, tropical jellies, yogurts, fresh juices & coffee-plus the makings for Cafe au Lait. There is noticeable efforts to improve / paint -replaster exteriors of the hotel- which is painted in bright tropical colors There is reliable taxi services arranged through the hotel for airport travels- as well as around the island. Available is an excursion director ( Dina) who is at the hotel Mon- Fri 8-10am - who offers excellent tours around Guadeloupe We booked full day tours of Grande Terre, Basse Terre, a snorkeling 1/2 day trip, and visited the very fine Aquarium & Zoo and Botanical Gardens. All excellent. Car rentals/ a small grocery(epicerie)/ gift shop, & restaurants are a 5 minute walk from the hotel. The staff at Canella Beach are most helpful

The property is close to the Marina and many restaurants. There is also a market at the Marina which is helpful. There in no beach access. This is not a relaxing vacation hotel but more just a place to sleep. There was no soap or shampoo or anything like that (there was soap container on the wall which did not work; I complained and the clerk reluctantly gave me two small soap bars. There is a pool but now towels. Lastly the bed and pillows were very hard. Honestly I've been more comfortable in Motel 6s in the US. But the price was reasonable and the location was nice.
