Fodor's Expert Review Fort Savane

5 rue de la Liberté, Le François, n/a Martinique, 97200, Martinique

Not to be confused with the military installation (Fort Louis) up the hill, this accommodation bills itself as a residence for both business travelers and tourists, but it doesn't have the full range of hotel amenities. Rooms range from simple doubles to studios with kitchenettes to commodious suites with well-equipped kitchenettes; all have an LCD TV, working desk, and free Wi-Fi. Some interior apartments have balconies overlooking a landscaped courtyard. Contemporary furnishings are in shades of maroon, and bedding and pillows are better than the norm. Units facing the street have double-paned windows. Although there’s not a lobby as such, there is an attractive sitting area in the second-floor elevator lobby.

PROS

  • personalized concierge service can even obtain a bottle of champagne after midnight
  • cordial, English-speaking receptionists
  • excellent location across from the Savane

CONS

  • cheapest rooms are small and some interior rooms are claustrophobic
  • no restaurant or bar on-site
  • reception desk is not manned after 8 pm or on weekends (guests must enter with a code)
