4 Best Hotels in Marie-Galante, Guadeloupe

La Rose du Brésil

$ | Rue du Littoral, D 203, 97140, Guadeloupe

At this tiny boutique hotel, all of the suites have impressive kitchens—though proximity to its good in-hotel restaurant and others nearby may not be an incentive for cooking. That said, do check out the terrace with a BBQ grill and a garden lounge with a hammock. Niceties abound, including the draped, four-poster beds, nicely furnished terraces, kitchens, and space for lounging and eating. The dinner restaurant, Manman' Dlo La Sirene, overlooks the pool and, in addition to classic French dishes with Caribbean leanings, serves fresh lobster. Across the street is a superlative beach.

Pros

  • Across from the beach
  • Excellent restaurant plus a tapas bar
  • Quality mattresses are replaced regularly

Cons

  • No sea views from accommodations
  • No resort amenities
  • Tight space

Le Soleil Levant Hotel and Resort

$ | 42 rue de la Marine, 97140, Guadeloupe

Low prices, gorgeous hilltop views, and nice dual pools keep this simple, family-owned complex filled. The real drawback for Americans is that little English is spoken, but that may be a reasonable trade-off for such a good deal. In front of the original hotel, with furnishings from decades past, is a large terrace with two pools and 360-degree views of the village and sea below. In addition to the newer building that houses the apartments, there are 10 bungalows, five with full kitchens. An open-air restaurant and bar serves an ample continental breakfast (for an extra fee) as well as basic dinners. More rooms were added and the new spa offers massages, facials, wraps, a sauna, Jacuzzi, and a sports hall.

Pros

  • Family-friendly
  • Good air-conditioning
  • Free, reliable Wi-Fi in rooms

Cons

  • You'll need a car
  • Hotel rooms are not large and get some noise
  • Staff not accustomed to American guests

Le Touloulou

$ | Capesterre-de-Marie-Galante, 97112, Guadeloupe

The restaurant can be a happening place, with atmospheric music from the beach bar vying with the slapping of the waves. An adjacent disco gets busy Friday and Saturday nights.

Pros

  • Beachfront location at a budget price
  • Adjacent restaurant and fun bar
  • Genial, bilingual chef-owner

Cons

  • Simple, no-frills place
  • Lacks the usual resort amenities
  • Can be loud on weekends

Le Village de Canada

$ | off D 304, 97112, Guadeloupe

The decades-old complex offers studios, bungalows, and apartments, some with sea views and a pool but no beach (though one is close by). You won't find a lot of style here, but the rooms do have private terraces. Many guests are Canadian—so, naturally, English is spoken. This complex is well-managed and a safe haven for families with children. Le Ballet, the largest cottage, has attractive woodwork on the walls and ceiling of the bedroom. Unfortunately, there's no restaurant on-site.

Pros

  • Private terraces
  • Moderate prices, especially on a weekly basis
  • Good central location equidistant between Grand-Bourg and St.-Louis

Cons

  • Not on the beach
  • Furnishings, TVs, and bedding are dated
  • A car is a must since there is no restaurant
