The hotel is old and in need of refurbishment. We were initially given a room which was a good distance from the main area. This room was substandard, had a view of a building site and the door card didn't work (we tried several). They then put us into a better room but this was dated. There was a lot of marble, including around the pool, which was dangerous and slippy when wet. The bar, which stayed open late, did not sell wine although the one downstairs by the pool did. The wifi only worked intermittently. The TV stopped working after 2 days and wasn't fixed. We never got into the hotel car park although there was parking in a field and on the road outside but these were badly lit at night. The worst thing was an incident at the pool one afternoon. There was an invasion of about 15, or more, black teenagers who tried to intimidate the hotel residents. They jumped into the pool shrieking and splashing everyone. I was particularly vulnerable as they threw their backpacks around the space where I was sitting. Eventually a "security" guy came and got about half of them to leave but he refused to deal with the remainder who were still in the pool and whose bags were still around where I was sitting. They eventually left but then some of them returned a short time later and jumped into the pool again. There is no security to prevent people who are not resident from using the pool. I found this threatening and when I tried to complain all the reception staff claimed not to understand English (my French is limited). It was not a pleasant experience and we won't be returning to the Caribbean.

its position on an elevated cape is beautiful, with 270° view to the ses and bay of FdF. Furthermore its lounge and the terrace to the sea are very nice and the excellent "Lili's" beach bar is a livesaver. The hotel celebrates 50th birthday and it seems that nearly nothing was renovated (see my pics): our room was foul-stinking with a heavy stained carpet, broken stained tiles in the bathroom, and stucking doors; and after to days the Aircondition broke down. The staff reacted incompetent and demotivated, we received no help on sunday, and monday the so called "technicien" just unscrewed the AC, scattered towels thereunder and left without notice. After my explicit complaints we were granted one of their "luxury rooms". The view and furniture wre very nice but even there the balustrade was rusty and the AC stained. How can such a neglected hotel survive? In effect it's a convention center and hudreds of short staying conference people fill rooms and canteens, and knock out the wifi!

Lousy service. We ordered 3 courses. we waited almost an hour for the main course. It turned out they had forgotten us....people that came after us to the restaurant got their food before us. We left hungry and just paid for the first course. EAT SOMEWHERE ELSE!

We were 3 couples that booked into the hotel before boarding a cruise. There is not much nice to say about this hotel. Only positive is that it has a great view and the wi-fi is work. The rooms are large with a balcony. In the rooms everything is dirty and shabby. Bathroom floor is dirty and the underside of the vanity top has not been cleaned this century. Rust and open holes in the tiles above the bath. The tiles in the shower and bath are so sticky you may pick-up a virus looking at it. Toilet holder is sticking out of the wall with the plugs being exposed and the paint on the roof is pealing. Bedroom carpet is dirty and has not been cleaned for a long time. When you arrive the sliding door to the balcony has been closed with a “plank” to prevent it from being opened. In short, this must be the dirtiest and most run-down hotel I have ever stayed in and it is not recommend to anyone unless this is the last place available on the island.

This was probably quite the place in 1970 but it looks like it has not been updated or repaired since then. The door to our room was broken and required a forceful slam with the hip to open or close. There was an opening at the bottom where termites were eating it. The tile was heavily stained and the water pressure spotty. On the upside the AC worked well and was quite. Few of the staff spoke English and our French is spotty so communication was intermittent. I gave an extra star because of the relatively low price.

Built in 1970 and never change it sad outdated hotel, it’s keep clean but the carpet are stained and a smell of damp It’s remote and staff are very unhelpful and service is poor We did not eat in the hotel as I saw the kitchen looked dirty

I went to this hotel for a meeting for a conference followed by lunch. The meeting room was NOT a comfortable temperature (it was warm) and seemed a bit dirty. There was dirt on the walls and the floors. The meeting ended with lunch which was some typical Martinique dishes and salads. Nothing exciting. The fish was over cooked and very dry. A bit strange for an island setting.

My husband and I stayed at Hotel La Bateliere from Feb 23 to March 3. We chose it for value and beach access. Unfortunately, there is just not much to walk to from this hotel and we did not want to rent a car. We made a few trips to the nearby grocery store and ate pizza from the takeout place just outside the hotel grounds. The beach is small but lovely and the beach restaurant, Lili's, has a great vibe and tasty cocktails. Besides the location, our other complaint about the hotel is that there was just one umbrella by the pool. So there is a race every morning to get the space under the palm trees or the lounges under the one umbrella. I asked the pool manager to put out more umbrellas and he told me that the umbrellas were all broken. That would seem to me to be something that could be fixed in short order. Generally, the staff at the hotel is very friendly and helpful, though they speak minimal English. I speak some French and we had no problem communicating. If you are uncomfortable in a place where there are not a lot of Americans, then this hotel is not for you. We loved Martinique and will return again, though I think we will choose another hotel.

Super site... Great food here... really .... Just taste the buffet on fridays... Moreover a great jazz band up there on fridays.... incredible sound... these guys are great... playing good ones of Mr Hanckok and his watermelon things. Special thanks To Lucien and François at the bars... wow

Had a good sleep here. Room looked and felt awful - wooden slab/stick at the foot of the balcony door - presumably because the door lock didn’t work, rusting furniture on the balcony. Bed was comfortable with good pillows, bathroom was dark with a smelly shower curtain and cracked porcelain on the bath. Breakfast was a serious health hazard: I saw countless birds pecking at all the available food - particularly at the egg station, ham, onion cheese, yep the birds had a choice. However, the Beach is a gem, small compact and safe, Lovely, There is a bar/restaurant directly on the beach, serving great food. Because of the beach and fab food in the beach restaurant all is forgiven Hotel La Bateliere. Unfortunately, I can’t recommend you. I sincerely hope that you return to your former glory - you could be fabulous Best wishes. HbHdAeM
