The resort is in bad disrepair the supposed self catering supplied were very minimal not even a chopping board or sharp knife .
Cobwebs in the room inside the bed lamps and we booked a double room but got two single bedside . We stayed three nights our room was not cleaned bin not emptied neither towels replaced until we requested . Reception opens at four we arrived in the morning and had to wait hours until we could enter our room . Friendly staffs but the poor state of the village is not good value the dining by the pool was very shabby you.
Would not return plus the road from Anse Mitan is a dark walk not good for females .
Tourist information supplied was out of date and covered in dust.
Shower old too small curtain was short thus water all over the floor and kept knocking the shower off as limited space

Room Tip: Call the owner

This is a lovely property in desperate need of repairs. Rotted wood, peeling paint & no screens on the doors-letting in bugs & even a lizard. Some of the bungalows, from the exterior, appeared to have had repairs done. Pretty grounds & on a small beach. I got some pretty pictures of the beach but didn't make use of the beach-as it is tiny. The bed & pillow was probably the worst I have ever experienced. I felt as though I was sleeping on a wooden board & lumpy doesn't begin to describe the pillow. With some repairs I would highly recommend this complex-it truly is lovely grounds & I just love the creole architecture. It is very convenient to village creole-one of my favorite spots on the island.

Room Tip: I was as room 153 (bungalow sapotille)--2 suites to a bungalow. Near the beach & entrance-when repairs done will be excellent-otherwise be prepared for peeling paint & rotted wood.

There are two L'Imperatrice hotels in Martinique one in Fort de France and the other in Anse Mitan. This review is for the one in Anse Mitan. The hotel shows much better in the daytime than if you arrive at night. It is very bare bones and some may like it that way. There is a secluded beach that is only accessible from the hotel grounds. The grounds are lovely and it gives the impression of being far off the beaten path which it is not. A five minute walk to the ferry and you can have a lovely boat ride into the center of Fort De France. The fare is 5.00 euro's per person one way or 7.00 euros round trip. BRING MOSQUITO REPELLENT. Mosquittos are no worse than anywhere else in the Caribbean but annoying if you are not prepared. Mattresses are very hard which is ok for me. WIFI is adequate but you will need one of the most complex passwords I have ever encountered. The room is air conditioned but the AC is barely up to the job because the rooms are designed to allow air to enter from outside.

If you arrive in Martinique and are traveling light, pull behind carry ons, I suggest you take a cab from the airport to the ferry dock and take the ferry from there. Then a short walk to the hotel. Last ferry leaves at 6:30 prompt. In tghe morning catch an early ferry into town and a take three block walk to the Fort de France L'Imperatrice on the Rue de Liberte". There on the second floor you can have a very adequate continental breakfast for $10.00 Euros. After breakfast you can walk the town, shop and find tours to all parts of the island. Be back to the ferry by 6:30PM for the trip back to Anse Mitan.
In the evening a medium walk puts you in Point de Bout a very artsy fartsy community of restaurants, galleries, and boutiques. We used taxi's to get to Point de Bout but they can be hard to come by. Boat trips are available from Point de Bout for snorkeling, scuba diving or just cruising and boozing.
Ceiling fans or portable fans would have been nice in the rooms to increase the airflow and to keep the mosquitoes off balance but we had our OFF.
There were no English channels available on the room TV. It was hard to wean myself from CNN and the BBC. You will like this hotel if you are the type of people that will make the best of a decent, less than four star situation. The price is good.

Room Tip: Rooms are semi detached cottages the closer to the beach may be better but finding it the first time on your own at night might make you a bit apprehensive.

The plus side first of all, this is a hotel with a nice location within easy walking distance of the restaurants and ferry stop at L'Anse Mitan. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with plentiful tropical flowers and hummingbirds galore. The small private beach is a pleasant place for a quick dip and the breakfast is pretty good, with croissants, fresh fruit etc.
But, and this is a big but, the chalet-style rooms here are depressingly shabby. Furnishings look like they were bought in the 1970s, the beds are saggy (a nightmare for anyone with any back issues) and the candlewick bedspreads look so grubby that I felt I had to wash my hands after handling them. Sheets had holes in them, the bathroom was clean, but still felt dirty and the kitchenette just made the room feel even more low-rent and grim. Also, the air conditioning leaked water, so we couldn't use that. The little terrace at the back was a Godsend as we really did not want to spend any more time than we absolutely had to in the room, but it had a very uninspiring view of the back of the reception hut.
I can't really comment on the staff as they were nowhere to be seen most of the time and rather inconveniently, reception closes for most of the middle of the day (about 12-4 I think) so if you do need anything for those 4 hours, good luck with that! Weirdly, on our first night someone started up either a chainsaw or a strimmer somewhere near our room at midnight. Goodness knows what all that was about, but it didn't help with a good night's sleep.
In summary, the beautiful grounds do not make up for the grimness of the rooms. Much investment is needed, starting with new beds, a lick of paint and new bedlinen. Not recommended.

Lovely location, with a small private beach and a bar area, to watch the sunset.

There are a number if chalets throughout the complex. The rooms we were in were shabby and in need to a great deal of maintenance and updating. The beds were comfortable enough. The pillows were a little lumpy. Most of the lights were not working in the room and the wooden slats on the windows and door did not fully close, so be prepared for a few nocturnal visitors.
Security in the rooms is not great. The bottom stable door lock did not fit, so could easily be opened without a key! No safe in the room, so had to take all valuables with is each day.
The rooms had a kitchen area, fridge and electric rings. There were no facilities, but you can ask for a pan and cups for making a drink.

A large pool and lovely seating area, were ideal for cooling off after a day exploring. The extensive gardens are lovely, great to watch crabs, frogs and birds. All chalets have a balcony, so you can sit relaxing in the garden.

The village complex is about 20 minutes walk from the town, downhill, with a good range of restaurants and cafés.

The staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was a good buffet, with fresh French bread, cheeses, ham, jams, croissants etc. A new coffee machine is available to help yourself. The breakfast/reception area is very pleasant. A BBQ is available on Saturday nights or on other nights by request, which is a new venture, in the bar area near the beach. The portions were large and of a good standard. The setting was great.

In summary: with some care and attention to the rooms, this would be an ideal place to stay. It seems as though they were doing maintenance work, so it would be worth seeing if they have any chalets which have been updated.

In terms of scores, I'd give 1 for the rooms, but 4 for everything else.
