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

Even I saw many negative reviews about the staff I think they are brilliant. Very nice and helpful all the time. We had duplex apartment which was best option with the most beautiful view (both ocean and pool side) i have ever had. The room was very clean, wide and comfortable. They cleaned the pool every morning. The breakfast was enough variable for us, so we enjoyed it every morning (only the coffee was not good). The beach was like private and was good spot for pictures but the seawater in the area was not pure enough. Anyway the locaton gave us an option to experience other beaches. Ideal option for people who don't want to rent a car - just 5 to 15min walking to many bus stops including one for the bus to the airport. Many shops around. Strongly recommend!

Central location on the island. Having a breakfast and plenty of space in a 2-room unit were pluses. But the kitchen and bathroom supplies were lacking, and the wi fi for Internet was terrible. It didn't work in the room at all. The only hot spot we found was at the restaurant by the beach. Internet is essential for modern travel. If you don't have it, please don't claim that you do.

We arrived later in the day, a little after 11pm. Thankfully, there was a front desk person. He didn't speak much English though. We got a duplex room which has two separate doors to access it; they only give you one key per door despite there being 3 of us. We got the keys and went all the way upstairs to the room only to find neither of the keys worked. We go back down and he says the room number he gave is incorrect. Back up and they still don't work. Finally back down to reactivate the keys for the first room. It was a bit much at almost midnight, just coming in. As far as the room, it was a lot more spacious than I imagined. The bathrooms were the only thing that was actually updated though. There was a rooftop with a mini fridge and stovetop but it hadn't been cleaned/maintained for a while and there were ants everywhere. The view was nice however. Breakfast was pretty standard, some pastries, coffee, juice, eggs, fruit. The only issue was there were ants all around the table where they had the coffee and juice. There are some local restaurants in the area, within walking distance and a casino. So that was nice. But the best part of the hotel, as I'm sure many have already mentioned, was the beach. The view is absolutely breathtaking. Aside from that, don't expect much else. We were only there 2days. It was okay for the price but if it had been longer I'd probably pay a little bit extra to stay somewhere nicer. The hotel design is nice, it just needs updating.

The hotel is outdated and does not look as nice as the website would lead you to believe. The bed was saggy, gap under the door, lizards in our room. Nice beach area, outdoor breakfast on the beach was nice.
