Hotel Bakoua Les Trois Ilets4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Recently stayed a week here without knowing much about the area. The hotel has some very pretty common areas, the beach, a nice infinity pool, very lush tropical grounds on multiple levels of the property. It's also very quiet at night. The beach at the hotel is probably the nicest in the area. If you are looking for big wide, white sand beaches however, you picked the wrong island. The beaches in Trois Islets are small, well maintained, and protected by rock jetties. Very little surf, and lots of palm trees to lay under. Can get pretty busy, and many people claim their beach chaises early in the AM. Other hotels and locals use this beach and rent the Bakoua's chaises for the day, as do people who get off cruise ships and come across the bay. There are several classes of rooms. The Deluxe rooms are for the most part beachfront and very nice. The Superior rooms are well appointed, but lack the charm and direct beach access of the Superior. I will say that the bed comfort and linens were fabulous. Each room I saw had a small fridge, a Nespresso pod style coffee pot, and fresh bottles of water daily. Nicer lotions and soaps in the bathroom as well. Note that when we were there, there were several flight crews constantly checking in and out, so this hotel is a magnet for airline crews. The Coco Bar restaurant was our bare foot lunch spot at the beach. Simple salads and sandwiches, served along with a cold beer and drinks was the best choice. There was also a more formal La Sirene restaurant for lunch as well, and the choices more diverse. We decided not to eat at the formal evening restaurant as there are many choices in the Ponte du Bout vicinity. It did look nice though. The staff here was very nice. Most speak good English, others less, and senior management the best. They try hard, and we had no trouble with face to face conversations. We visited several of the other hotels in the area. Bakoua was the best combination of amenities, beach, and quality.
Can't say enough good things about this establishment, staff friendly with private beach central location in trois islets near public beaches, marina boulangeries(bakery), store and shops Despite my limited French not used for a year all employees extremely accommodating and patient. Transportation procured easily on time, rented suite not cheap but with balcony, jacuzzi and 2 rooms worth it. Only flaw was restaurants on site overpriced for what was offered in comparison to the dozens of dining options nearby plus reservations required for better one... The rum selection dates back to 1932, outstanding!
I stayed in hotel Bakoua from January 18 to January 24. We had a lot of problems with lost luggage and renting a car. The staff of the hotel was very friendly and helpful. Our special thanks to Valdi who helped us to rent a car, to solve problems with the car and was cheerful every day trying to find my bag. Thanks a million, Valdi! Elena Arsenyev, Washington, DC USA
Place has nice beach area, also there is a pool we used on a rainy day. Food is very good at the hotel. Snake bar by the beach could easily be avoided if you could just go in to the city and not pay like $4 euros for ice cream stores are 4 times cheaper than beach bar. There are also to the left of the hotel bunch of restaurants were one can easily get pizza or some light lunch if you don't want to waste few hours for lunch and eat at the beach. Place is very pretty and when we were eating breakfast we set near open area and enjoyed amazing view. Rooms better to take ones at the beach that way shade is provided and one can sit right in front of their room going for a swim when needed. Place has tennis court which we used. We used boat rides to Fort De France to explore local market and city it self.
The service at this hotel is the same as all Caribbean locations. They don't really care much about you and they don't care about your time. An interesting experience but make sure to show up with a lot of patience. Otherwise, the location is fantastic and the view is spectacular!
We stayed at Hotel Bakoua, for a night for our short stay in martinique and it was amazing!!!. The hotel restaurant was amazing (but let's be honest, the french did invent fine dining and I've never been to a bad french restaurant). The beach at the hotel was amazing for snorkeling not even 20 feet from the shoreline. The grounds are beautiful, the infinity pool something to behold. Le Bakoua, is just easily one of the best hotels, if not one of the best hotels I've stayed at in the Caribbean!!
Lots of people have mentioned the great location - on the beach overlooking Fort de France bay and close to plenty of other restaurants that are walking distance. It is also an easy drive to some lovely villages along the coast (so hire a care from the airport rather than an expensive taxi or coach transfer). So as for the hotel itself: 1. SERVICE. I had asked at the time of booking not to have a ground floor room. I arrived at the check in desk at 10:00pm and the man there was very welcoming and explained about the hotel, and directed me to me room, although no one was available to actually show me to it. Needless to say it was on the ground (beach) level right next to a public beach (although used mainly be hotel guests). I was surprised he hadn't mentioned this at check it. Also there are no lifts and I had heavy bags which I had to take down two flights of stairs to my room in semi darkness. The next day, my breakfast plates where cleared and the table given to someone else while I was waiting for my eggs to be cooked. I didn't get an apology - just " I thought you'd gone" from the restaurant staff. So service is really not very good for a hotel that's claiming to be 4*. Also there is no food or room service after 10pm, and there are no snacks in the room. Also, they only provide water on the day of arrival - why penalize people who stay longer??? ROOM Very dark as there is covered outside seating at beach level, and somewhat dated. The toilet flush in my room kept sticking, the shower control was not fixed properly and there is no temperature control for the AC - its either on or off and you can control the fan speed only. Not all the lights worked either, and there were plenty of mosquitos in the room when I arrived. On the plus side the bed was very comfortable, it was nice to have a nespresso machine in the room, and the Wi-Fi worked well. MEALS Breakfast was fine - not a huge choice, but had all I wanted and it is served in a nice open setting overlooking the coast. EUR 20 for hotel guests. There seemed very limited choice on the evening menu so I ate elsewhere. FACILITIES The infinity pool looked good and there is lots of watersports available on the beach. All in all I was not impressed given the price paid, and would probably look elsewhere if I came to Martinique again. However, if they refurbish the rooms and have a look at their customer service things could be very different. I generally research places carefully before booking and hence most of my reviews are quite high. That is why I have given this a 3 point review to make a distinction when somewhere doesn't live up to expectations.
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.
