I stayed at Bakoua a year ago and only now saw a demonstration that explained to me how I was robbed. I had a room by the beach and because of the breeze didn't use the A/C, the open door, held by the door chain was enough. There was a safe in the room, but it was not operational and not having a lot on me I didn't bother. I was leaving at 6 am and when I woke up the door was open, the key laying on the floor. Because my wallet and an expensive watch were present, I decided that I forgot to put the chain in, when I got to the room late in the evening. Then I noticed that my bracelet was missing and when I was checking out, I discovered that there was some money in my wallet, but just a couple of dollar and euro notes, the rest was gone. What surprised me, was the reaction of the receptionist when I told him that I was robbed - none, like nothing happened. The reason I'm posting this only now because I could not understand how the door was opened and as I said, I have just seen a demonstration how to open a door chain using a scotch tape. It's quite ease, really, and I am confident that this is exactly what happened and that it was an inside job. I got to the room at midnight, I got up at 4. Somebody knew that it was my last night, somebody saw my door held by the door chain, and I am no longer surprised by the reaction of the personnel. I have to admit, they did leave my watch, some money, and the most important of course, my driver license and the credit cards, so it was not too bad. The hotel itself is nice. Not sure about 4 stars and some refurbishing wouldn't hurt. Nice beach, although the menu hasn't changed, the food was good and service very pleasant. I may go there again, but will make sure not to bring too much of the valuables and make sure that there is a safe in the room or better yet, at the reception.
My wife and I arrived, the only English people on site, we saw one American couple. The staff were so friendly, they have restaurants on site but were happy to recommend near by restaurants. We stayed 10 nights and ate in 10 different restaurants all easy walking distance and all a bit different and all very good. The hotel upgraded us for free to beach front first floor which was right on the beach . Lovely room with coffee machine, fridge, ensuite. Great for buying a few outside goodies. Breakfast at Hotel is very very good, crepes,omelet, fruit, pastries etc. The staff in beach bar were lovely as were all staff we met. Water sports available at extra cost, good snorkelling bay, very safe, great sandy beach, loads of sun loungers, even with day visitors you could always get a nice spot in sun or shade as you choose. Great great great.
Stayed here as a solo traveler and loved it. It has its own white sand beach and comfy chairs to relax in. Wifi works on the beach! Beautiful rooms, very nice staff and delicious breakfast! Centrally located to walk about. Bus top right near by to adventure out of area.
I stayed in the Hotel Bakoua for a whole week from Feb. 25 to March 4, 2017. I was very pleased with it! All of the rooms are waterview,, with beautiful views of the very large Baie de Fort de France and of Fort de France, even at night, directly across the water from the hotel. I was also very happy with my "garden view" room and its large and spacious bathroom. I was very impressed with how abundant and beautiful the hotel's grounds are! I loved its physically unusual pool and scenic and very spacious beach. I loved the breakfasts and the beautiful scenery from where it is eaten! Importantly, the hotel has a very excellent and advantageous location, having easy walking distance to a variety of things. Even more importantly, I found its employees, particularly at the front desk, to be generally cordial, warm, and helpful, in French and/or English, with one of the men at the front desk, a Jean-Claude, to be a memorable and impressive stand-out!
The Hotel Bakoua is in a perfect location with a small private beach and several other lovely beaches within a very short distance, 2 minutes walk. Shops, many restaurants and cafes about 5 minutes walk away and the ferry to Fort de France about 8 minutes. You pay for the ferry trip on the ferry, always buy a return ticket. It's cheaper than a one way ticket. Eating: You can eat at the hotel but limited choices, for verity check the many restaurants available "down town". The room itself was clean and tidy, bed very comfortable. The Staff were helpful and friendly but speaks limited English, but there was always someone available who spoke fluent English. Free Wifi that worked. I was there for Father's day and the hotel had a paid Buffet however the hotel guest were invited and did not have to pay. FREE. Now that is what I call being treated as family. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
My mom and I visited Martinique by cruise for the day last week and wanted to spend a nice day on a beach not far from the port in Fort-de-France. Martinique is not a well-known island in the cruise circle so there weren’t a lot of options to research, but after digging deeper I discovered suggestions to take the short 15 minute ferry ride over from FDF to Pointe du Bout where we could visit nice restaurants, shops, and hotels on the beach. This sounded perfect, so I researched the hotels and happily stumbled upon Hotel Bakoua. I emailed them asking if we could rent chairs and have lunch on the beach for the day even without being hotel guests, and they graciously responded promptly to all of my questions by email which I appreciated, especially since again, we wouldn’t even be staying at the hotel. They confirmed we could rent chairs for 10 euros each on the beach and enjoy lunch at the Coco Bar over the water. So, last week we went for it and had the best most relaxing day of our entire cruise. The hotel was literally a 2 minute walk from where the ferry dropped us off, so easy. We got chairs under a big umbrella for the day, and enjoyed the quiet little cove beach with no waves, so nice to be able to float and relax. And the Coco Bar was fantastic! I wasn’t expecting much from a small place over the water, but they actually did made to order fresh salads and paninis and they were both amazing! I have been to France and the French Rivieria in particular and this easily felt like I was there. The salad and sandwich had quality meats and cheeses and even came with a side of warm bread and dipping oil. It was a lovely day and I would definitely return for the day by cruise or hopefully even stay here in the future since Martinique was so fantastic!
Would give this place a miss. It is a very tired hotel the rooms have a damp smell. Although we arrived 1.5 hour after check in time our room was not ready. Once they had it sorted we went to the room to find we had no toiletries. We spoke to reception who said they would sort it we had left to get our dinner on our return we did have some but it was a little late!! There are beautiful views from the hotel and its position is ideal but the shabbiness lets it down. It is an expensive hotel but I have stayed in better premier inns.
The Location and Grounds plus Private Beach is Super and not so far from the Airport. However the Service Standard of the Staff (Especially Reception) is Far Below Standard. Rooms also need so improvements as Rather Simple and Outdated.
A very good hotel to stay at. The only reason we did not give a higher rating was due to the surly and unfriendly reception staff. They gave us the wrong room on our first night and made out it was our fault with no apology! Customer service is sadly lacking. I would have expected for a 4 star hotel to have a more personalised service e.g. an acknowledgment of our honeymoon.
This is in many ways a wonderful hotel and I would return to it. It is in a superb location with a small almost private beach and several other lovely beaches within a very short walk. The collection of flats, hotels, shops, restaurants and cafes within about 5 minutes walk is excellent and you can get a ferry to Fort de France also about 5 minutes walk away. So the position is just about perfect. The staff were delightful in reception, cleaning and the beach. Head waiter in the restaurant also very good. The rooms are a bit faded but everything works and they are quite big and well equipped. Beds very comfortable and its all clean and tidy. The only draw back was the food which was frankly poor. In addition breakfast was a hassle because you have to struggle to get someone to take any notice and give you a coffee. Service in the restaurants at other meals was also slow and seemed keen to ignore you. Overall I would go back but only on a no breakfast no lunch no dinner basis. Plenty of other places to eat, all better and cheaper.
