Ok, so let's remember this is a three star hotel and my review reflects this. We stayed here for a week on bed and breakfast basis, as we wanted to sample a variety of local foods. My biggest disappointment was not having a coffee maker in the bedroom. The biggest positive was that the staff were all very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was good as was the bar food. The food and drinks at the bar were very reasonably priced, especially with the size of a glass of wine- very generous! I enjoyed the holiday, set in an amazing setting. One point I must make is about local buses. We were advised over and over again by our rep to hire a car. We didn't and we used the local buses almost daily. The buses mostly kept to time and always turned up, maybe we were lucky. We did lots of beautiful walks in woods and along the coastline, including walking to Deshaies and back on one occasion, not an easy treck but certainly worth the effort. If you are looking for a slick hotel or a party atmosphere, this is not for you. If you want a basic three star base, a quiet get away from it all, this could be what you are looking for.

To go back in time can most definitely be a dangerous thing. This place vouches for that. This was the old club med in the island, now owned apparently by Swedes. If you miss the Torremolinos or Benidorm Eurotrash vacations in south of Spain during the eighties, this is the place for you. Even the music blasting from their speakers all day is from these trashy times. The only thing updated here are the prices.....a Mojito made with local rhum, 8 euros?? Seriously?. And also the people, the same crowd, but 45 years later......

Beautiful location on the beach. We had a room up on the hill and it was fine. The front desk staff were great and friendly however the bar staff never smiled or said hello. One of the bartenders was talking to his buddy (assuming he worked there as well) who was loudly complaining about having to work too early in the morning. The bartender used swears throughout the conversation - not professional at all and there were kids close by. The breakfast was very nice but again the servers in the restaurant never greeted us or said good morning. Lots of activities for kids so would be good for traveling as a family but overall I would not recommend based on my experience.

This was our third trip to Guatelope. First time staying here. I was worried because of the mixed reviews. We arrived 12/31 and stayed through 1/8. We loved the hotel. It’s nothing fancy but perfect for the Caribbean. We took our 4 older children who had the room next to us. Beautiful beach view. Loved the lounge chairs on the beach and the ability to rent paddle boards. They had fireworks on New Years which was really nice. The breakfast buffet we had everyday which was perfect and had a ton of options. Staff very friendly and helpful. Definitely a great family resort. Our view every morning 😍

A good resort with paradise vibrations. You will get everything you need at reasonable prices. Not a first class resort but a family friendly resort with a Swedish flavour in a Caribbean island with a lot of unspoiled nature. All inclusive offer is great and your best choice.

8 nights/B&B plan and really enjoyed. Rooms clean and simple but not posh luxury, a few scratches and dents - very good for the Caribbean. Great beach, good food, cold drinks, Deshaies and the rainforest close proximity with lots to do. Tove and Alex at kids club made it a very special stay for our 4 y/o son and allowed us to truly relax.

Had a great trip and a nice stay at the hotel. We stayed in one of the units near the ocean. So cute, watched the sunset each evening. Only did the breakfast which was very nice. Loved the bar and the pizza.

Great hotel with options of all inclusive or B&B. The hotel has good facilities including Tennis, Sailing, Kayaks, windsurfing, live music and a beautiful beach. There re suites, normal rooms, and cabanas, and all are in a pretty good state. The internet is very slow and the bar closes at midnight, but otherwise I would recommend this hotel.

I notice there are plenty of mixed reviews about this hotel but I can honestly say there were no negatives for us. We stayed in the main block, in a lovely large room overlooking the hotel beach. Our room was spotlessly clean and remained that way throughout the visit and the air conditioning worked well. The shower was wet room style but since the bathroom was large that wasn't a problem. The bed was very comfy, what I would call German style with 2 single mattresses together in a bed frame and individual duvets. The wifi worked in the room and on the beach. Breakfast was great, with masses of choice for all nationalities, including very crispy bacon! We didn't eat in the restaurant for lunch or dinner, but did enjoy pizza and pannini at the beach bar, both of which were very good and reasonably priced. The staff were all friendly and all spoke English which was a bonus. A couple of nights there was entertainment around the bar area - a reggae night and a salsa night, both of which were enjoyable. The location of the hotel is wonderful, as it is literally on the beach. And what a beach! One of the nicest in Guadeloupe, very clean, with showers. The swimming pool is not as nice, being quite scruffy and with security gates that were almost impossible to open. As the sea was so beautiful I simply didn't bother with the pool after the first time. We had a hire car throughout our stay and I would say this is essential if you want to get around. Each evening we drove into Deshaies for a meal (10 mins max). Quite a few of the restaurants there were closed because it was not high season (we were there in August) but apart from one evening when only one place was open, there was enough choice and space. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and would definitely recommend this hotel.

We stayed in the hotel and the room was nice and big despite the old furniture. Good food (buffet) and plenty to choose from. The staff speak French, English and Scandinavian. Many interesting excursions and I recommend all, because Langley (travel agency) is well known for its good quality activities. The only negative thing is that the village was too small...nothing to see and do there. You must rent a car or travel by buss (not so reliable). I'll recommend hearty for the atmosphere, the warm water, the nature around. We'll be back in Guadeloupe, but maybe in another place (bigger, lively).
