My husband and I stayed at Coterelle Breeze for a weekend in May. Wonderful place. The advertised pictures were spot on. We were in the romantic suite which included a room right on the water with a queen sized bed and ensuite bathroom. The accommodations were very beach bungalow. We had our meals right outside of our room overlooking the water. The staff were so kind and hospitable. And the host, Franz, was always available and arranged moto transport whenever we needed it. He made all of our arrangements and was great with suggestions. While it was a little bit away from everything, it was worth the 5-10 minute trip to get places. Falling asleep to the sound of waves can't be beat.
Very much enjoyed my two nights in the Romantic Ocean View Room. The room was comfortable and the staff were excellent. Frantz was extremely helpful and great to talk to. A couple points for others to note: there are no screens or glass in the windows -- only wooden shutters that block out the light and view when closed. This room also shares a wall with the room next door, and the wall does not actually go all the way to the ceiling, so you can very easily hear your neighbours at night, and they can hear you! But overall I would highly recommend this wonderful spot, which was a highlight of my short stay in Haiti.
Coterelle Breeze was everything our group of five had hoped for and more. We travel to Haiti every year for an education project (Jakdesa Community School) in Cayes Jacmel.
In the past we have stayed at hotels in or near Jacmel but we wanted to be closer to the school this year.
The buildings are not fancy but are clean and the food was amazing. We will be staying there again next year.

I want to give a thorough review without being too wordy so, here goes, the top Four reasons (there are many) Corterrel Breeze was an unbelievable value come true!
One-Value- Happy to say...It's real. The photos you see are actual photos of the rental and nearby beaches. Clean, running water, electricity, lovely grounds, oceanside, sandy beach nearby, free wifi, items you forgot or didn't know you'd need are available for purchase/rent. It's the least expensive hotel/vacati
Two- Customer service- Djeno was quick to respond to inquiries and eager to provide answers to any questions, even before I made a payment to reserve a room, and certainly after.
Three- Host- Upon arrival, Frantz picked up where Djeno left off, exuding enthusiasm for ensuring we had a positive experience in Haiti. He personally ensured our meals (which were extremely inexpensive) were prepared to our taste. I have a vegan diet and Frantz ensured my requirements were met. He even threw in Haitian/caribbean dishes, fruits, juices and veggies to give us a taste of Haiti on our plates. I will be heading to the farmer's market to find breadfruit, chayote and soursop this weekend:)
Four- Location-The ocean is right at your door! Lounging on one of the many hammocks on the grounds, sitting on your front porch or even in your room, the waves of the ocean are a constant soothing sound. Both me and my mother found it soothing...peaceful, our favorite aspect of the property and the primary reason we will be back. I'm a runner and started each morning w/ a run either toward Jacmel or Marigot, the ocean w/in view, followed by stretching and yoga, at the water :)
For all of these reasons and more, we canceled our follow-on plans and extended our time here for two more days. Fortunately, there was availability :)
Coterelle Breeze offers a beautiful, simple place to stay in local surroundings. The view is excellent, and the owner makes sure you have all you need. I recommend staying here.
