Karibea Camelia Residence
Ranked #11 of 11 Hotels in Trois-Ilets
Reviewed 2 January 2017

We were glad to only stay there for one night. The rooms smelled old, everything was past their prime. Wifi worked in the rooms at slow speed. Nice view over the Pointe du Bout and Fort de France in the distance.
The pool was not very enticing, so we stayed away and enjoyed the Pointe du Bout restaurants instead. Staff was friendly and hepful.
Balcony kitchenettes are a plus, but the balcony is tiny.

Room Tip: It seems that all rooms turn toward the ocean view.

We were a large group that occupied 4 rooms for one night. We rented a villa for a week in Le Diamant that wasnt available the first night of the stay so we opted to stay in Trois-Ilets the first night.
The rooms are basic, a little dirty and in need to a renovation. The view from our 3rd floor balcony was amazing to wake up to, though and since we were only actually at the hotel for less than 12 hours, the price was right.
We ate dinner in Village Creole which was right on the borderline of being a long walk - half our group took cars and half walked up the very steep hill to the hotel.
The kitchenette on the balcony had all the essentials to store food and prepare breakfast or lunch but the table and chairs were awkwardly large for such a small space.
The lobby had a lovely view also and my husband took a swim in the pool.
Im not sure I would stay here again, but for what we needed it was manageable.
The night front desk man spoke moderately good English, but the woman who checked us out seemed confused about the process and spoke no English at all.

Room Tip: The higher up, the better the view

Best value for money. View is stunning. Sounds of surrounding nature is incredible. Beds are clean. I know nothing about the breakfast. We have seen the pool but it is tiny. The reception informs that they speak English but hardly. Rooms are old. Balcony with small kitchenette is tight for two but equipped with basic stuff.
Do not expect too much for this price.

The hotel is up a very steep hill. Ok if you have a car or taxi to bring you and luggage up. The room itself is ok but the beds madrass was poor and had deep dumps after other people lying there for years. The maintainance of the hotel is poor. The breakfast is a huge disapointment. You must boile your own eggs. There is no realy bread. Allmost everything you wants from a breakfast at a hotel was missing. Coffee from an old coffee machine. No milk or orange juice. The batroom in the room was also a disapointment. Glass wall shower with doors that didnt work.

Room Tip: If your ok to walk stairs ask for third floor. Best view for sure.

As an American I didn't know quite what to expect of the French Antilles. I can only say that my stay in Camelia-Karibea in Trois Islets was the perfect low-stress environment for me to enjoy the beaches, get to know the locals, as well as serving as the perfect jumping off point for excursions around the island. I found the staff helpful, warm, and friendly. The room was comfortable and cool. There was a kitchenette on the porch, and a shower with plenty of hot water. The hotel was centrally located and a 5 minute walk from the beach. My trip to Martinique taught me a valuable lesson: I learned that travelers have to learn to let go of their expectations and accept the local hospitality on its own level. And once you learn to accept that things will be different, and learn to appreciate the local hospitality for its own beauty and warmth, things become much easier. Americans especially should forget about their American luxuries and APPRECIATE what a small island has to offer. People are friendly. Everyone says "Bonjour". People offer help. They appreciate a "Merci". If you open your eyes you will see amazing sights on this wonderful island. I have memories that will last a lifetime.

Room Tip: The top floor (3rd) will probably offer the best views.
