Fodor's Review

Wrought-iron gates open to what's one of Martinique's best resorts, what French guests call a "human hotel," where you can cocoon. Formerly an estate, the original structure has that East India Company look, with cane-and-teak plantation-style furnishings and terra-cotta tiles. From the circular bar and the adjacent pool, the views of the mountain peaks juxtaposed with the yachts in the bay are magical. Walk down the pier to the thatch-roof rotunda that shades the Coco Bar. (Lunch here is inexpensive, and the tropical drinks are super.) Just a few steps up is Le Sirene, the water-view lunch restaurant where in low season the bountiful breakfast is taken—and dinner, too. Suites, such as the Amanda, are a throwback to gracious estate living. Down pillows and European linens, as well as comfy window seats, give the smallish beach-level rooms a sumptuous feel. Alas, they can be damp and they "hear the noise' on weekends. The veteran staff can be indifferent, although many are caring and friendly. At night, entertainment makes this one of the island's social centers.
