Fodor's Expert Review La Toubana Hôtel & Spa

Rue de l'Hôtel Toubana, Grande-Terre, 97180, Guadeloupe Fodor's Choice

Few hotels on Guadeloupe command such a panoramic view of the sea—spanning four islands, no less—and all the suites offer full sea views, some breathtaking. The cliffside suite offers the most dramatic vistas, but a pair of two-bedroom suites have private pools. Many bungalows have some kind of view, even if it's only partial. But all accommodations have furnished balconies, and high-end bedding with colorful accents. Three sumptuously decorated luxury villas have four bedrooms and private pools, and have proven particularly popular with Americans. In front of the restaurant, with its own bar, swimmers in the infinity pool feel that they can almost touch the surf. A small cove, far below and dramatically lighted by night, offers swimming on a private beach. The pier, chaises, and beach restaurant all help draw sophisticated yachties and French expats, who make it wildly popular on weekends. All that plus a deluxe eco-spa, with a sauna and fitness room, makes this one of the island's in places.
