I would caution potential guests to be careful when reserving a room with this property on their website. I put in the search engine 2 nights, for 2 adults - it would pull up a room for two nights but only one adult - see attached screenshot. I tried multiple times. I finally went ahead and reserved the room, but contacted the hotel about problems with their web site and that the reservation was for 2 adults, not one. At first they were non-responsive, I sent several e-mails. Then they responded multiple times confirming the reservation, but for one adult. They finally came back and confirmed the reservation for two - however when I looked closely at the reservation details (they did not disclose it up front) - they increased the price by 60 euros per night. As a frequent traveler I am not accustomed to such tactics by hotels, and this is a red flag. If they are trying to sneak in, add on charges even before you arrive - what might happen during a stay is concerning and has me as a prospective guest very leery. When I inquired about the additional charge, 60 euros per night - they said it was the daily breakfast charge for the additional guest in the room. The cost for breakfast was 60 euros per day per person, $72 per day, per person for breakfast. La Creole's breakfast qualifies in the ranks of being one of the most expensive breakfasts in the world at that rate. Anyone have any similar experiences with this property and is the breakfast worth $72 per day per person? I asked to have breakfast not included and reduce the rate by 120 euros a day and they have not responded. In that I am platinum with Marriott and Starwood, I rarely pay for breakfast. However in all of my thousands of nights in hotels, I've never paid anywhere close to $72.00 per person, per day for breakfast.
Really nice hotel. Clean room. Food was decent. Luckily i included breakfast in our stay because the dinner buffet was pricey. Note that if you're traveling with someone that has walking issues, be sure to request a room on the ground floor, as there aren't many elevators, if any, to get up the stairs. We had a nice view of the sea. The live entertainment was nice as well.
The hotel was nice very well kept. It's a french island so there was a language barrier for obvious reasons. The spa was amazing definite to do during your stay. I would definitely go back. Planteut rum punch a must drink. Keep in mind while staying that things around town shut down very early. Therefore eating after hours is a very hard task.
I arrived late at Creole Beach. I crossed the large tropical garden to get to my room. I could hear the sound of wind in the palm trees in spite of insect noises. I had a good night’s sleep. My room was clean functional, with grey and white colors and clear wood furnitures. At dawn I reached the modern airy breakfast room. I enjoyed the copious buffet. Then I started visiting the hotel. It’s a very pleasant place by the seashore. Buildings are not too massive, in harmony with the surroundings. Deco is simple, elegant. There is a long infinity pool overlooking the white sand beach. Ocean view is amazing. Creole Beach is a beautiful hotel.
Just spent a long weekend here-relaxed on the lovely beach and gorgeous pool. Newly redone room was great. Sumptuous buffet breakfast each morning. Pizza and sandwiches on the beach. Entertainment each evening and also during the day on Sunday. Very French but staff spoke English. Spa and fitness although I didn’t use. Not far from Airport.
I spent two weeks at this hotel in an ocean view room. The view each morning of the mountains and ocean was beautiful. Lovely hotel, cleaning staff was excellent. The excursion coordinator, Gwladys, made great recommendations based off of my interests and worked magic to make them happen! She is well respected among the tour operators and drivers around Guadeloupe. This hotel is located centrally, so it's a good option for anyone wanting to explore all corners of Guadeloupe. The beach was smaller than I expected, and unfortunately was under construction during my stay. There were lovely areas to sit and read in the shade or sun depending on your preference. Dining options at the hotel are limited to two restaurants and a beach hut with pizzas and sandwiches. The dinner buffet was good in the main dining area, but it would have been nice to have an a la carte option in the evening. The 5-star Zawag restaurant was located on the water with great views and sounds of the waves rolling nearby. My best meals in Guadeloupe were at this restaurant. The food was fresh and beautifully presented. However,the servers at the Zawag could use some refinement customer service training to be on par with a restaurant of this calibre and expense. Every evening there is jazz playing by the bar and some evenings there were concerts on the main stage. It was great to hear live music every day.
I had won a 5 night stay in this hotel thru a contest and we were there from November 13th to the 18th. We arrived at night and were greeted by Sophia at the front desk who spoke an excellent English and was very professional and hospitable, We had reserved a king size bedroom and were given room 640 in the building just next to the lobby. Very nice room with comfy bed and pillows. The shower fixtures were very nice and took us a few minutes to get the hang of them...lol...there was plenty of hot water but they need to install some grab bars as the bathtub is quite high. The fridge is stocked...with ONE bottle of water and 2 glasses. Yes, you read it right and the water is only given on the first day! You want more? buy or drink from the tap (very good water and safe to drink). We were also greeted by a nice fruit plate. The hotel is very modern, nice big pool area, the beach is small but it was enough for us. The pier was been repaired while we were there because hurricane Maria damaged the concrete but it was not a problem. We bought pizza at the beach kiosk-not bad but the drinks were expensive. We had breakfast included in our stay and it was very varied and delicious. The coffee was my best friend as well as the fresh juices. The WIFI was very strong but it kept kicking us out from time to time and you needed to carry your log in info with you. The beach is lacking palapas and some of the covered areas are on the grass, close to the rocks and not on the beach. The bar was ok but they do not serve any snacks after 10pm as the kitchen is "closed". For dinner we just walked out of the hotel and found a nice place across from the casino. The food outside of the hotel is at a reasonable price. If you need to rent a car, please do so at the hotel as it is cheaper than walking across the street to Herz. We rented a car for E46 for one day and went to Basse-Terre island -it is a must! such beautiful scenery! Very safe to drive there. If you need to fill up after 9pm, you need to go the kiosk and prepay as you cannot pay at the pump. We did not find a problem with not speaking French, many people do speak English in different levels and if not, we knew some words in French -we went by ok. On our last night we went to Le Gosier, there is a weekly market there that closes at 9pm and we loved to see people at the beach, either at the bars with the music playing or just frolicking in the water. We did not get enough of this island and would love to come back one day for more! oh, if you go to Basse-Terre, please stop over at Deshaies, which is a fisher village with little stores, restaurants and an amazing view and then continue to the Botanical Gardens -amazing experience!
La Creole Beach is big hotel but because there are many buildings, it doesn't feel so massive. Beach is ok but unfortunately there were some construction work going on during our stay. Maybe due to hurricane Maria? Breakfast was fresh and lots of variety. We recommend rental car because there is so much to see on this beautiful island!
It is a large hotel located at the beach in La Gosier. We were upgraded to a room with sea view and we were lucky to get the room at 10.00 a.m. when we arrived just in order to leave our luggage before we went on a scubadive. The surroundings are very nice. The wi-fi it is not that bad but the connection variates and you have to pay 5 Euro for each item. The first day it was not at all possible to get connected, but later on it was ok. The beach is very lovely and the pool area too. There is a small beach bar where you can buy pizza etc. at resonable prices. We did not try the restaurants but they seemed a little pricy. There are small restaurants nearby with delicious food. The breakfast buffet is very good, you can eat outside but be aware of the birds, who think it is breakfast time too. Butterflies and birds live in the area and the waiters did a good job trying to keep them away from the food. The room was large but nothing special and a little humid, but we don't think it could be otherwise in the humid climate during summertime. We had a late flight departure and they offered us a late check out without extra payment.
Arrived at 2h00 pm with small children and Weren't checked in before 7h00 pm . The staff told us that check in time was only an 'approximation'. They were very arrogant about the situation . The rest of the stay was ok . The beach is clean and the water beautiful . The staff at the morning buffet helpful . And the room were satisfactory .
