We stayed here for almost 2 weeks. The hotel is very friendly, well located and has a wonderful swimming pool. One of the most beautiful I have seen! Shop, bar, spa, activities, the hotel offers everything you need. The accommodation is nice. You just have to pay attention to the water cuts (which affects a good part of Guadeloupe and which is therefore not only in this hotel).
What a great hotel! Everything about it was wonderful. Location is on a great and mostly private beach. Clear, clear water! Breakfast is included. FULL and delicious breakfast...great freshly made omelettes, delicious French pastries, breads, hams, cold cuts. Great coffees and teas. Served oceanfront under the shade of a beautiful covered terrace. Huge and very clean oceanfront pool. Beautiful grounds. Buildings colorful and so well maintained. Rooms so clean and comfortable with porch open to the ocean. Shower has full pressure and wonderfully hot water. Staff so helpful and friendly. Nights so quiet and peaceful. Sky full of stars. Also close to town. Loved it!!
Hotel Manganao could be viewed as a diamond in the rough. It's a sprawling facility that has combined hotel and longer term residential stays. Over the past couple of years the facilities have undergone remodeling. Our remodeled room was a comfortable size for a couple. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was clean. The pool area is BIG and well designed. Our friends and their family really enjoyed it. The hotel's beach area is smaller than one might be use to; however, it's coziness makes it easy to stretch out on a chaise without being disturbed. The hotel could probably get a 4.6 to 5.0 rating if the beach was large enough to provide access ti sand or water based activities. The hotel has a restaurant that is just a few steps away from the pool and the beach. Their drinks and their food are tasty. A good place to have lunch or dinner after taking a break from the pool or the sun. All-in-all, this a place we will return to on our future visits to Guadeloupe.…
Pros: Nice small beach on grounds. That’s about it. Cons: - This resort has seen better days. It’s now a depressing dump - Pillows in rooms are lumpy and uncomfortable - Breakfast is included, but they ran out of food 30 mins before breakfast officially ended - The rooms are WAY overpriced. The grounds are huge, so daily maintenance is probably what jacks up the room rates - The decorative pools in the lobby are gross and cloudy and look great for breeding mosquitos - The swimming pools were not in working order when we were here There are much better places to stay for the same price, but you must book months in advance. This is the best we could find at short notice.
Place is almost abandoned, service was the worst, rust and dust everywhere, rooms didnt have enough light to read a book, outdoor was also dark on evenings. Located nowhere, nothing to do without car, no shops and life around. Breakfast was interesting experience - some mornings they didn't even have drinking water, only 1-2 different fruits, coffee + some bread, butter and jam. If you wanted cheese you had to ask and you received 1 slice per face. Yes, one slice per person :))) Beach is small and pools dirty. Would be ok for 75€ per night but not for 3 times more.
