Cap Sud Caraibes
Ranked #10 of 23 Hotels in Le Gosier
Reviewed 15 April 2013

If you prefer the small, family owned, "local like" hotels to the big resorts, you will like this place. First we found the room quite dodgy, but after a couple of days and after seeing some alternative resort type accomodations, we started to like it very much. Yes, you need a car, but you need a car anyway if you want to see a bit more from the island than the local beaches. However, the place is not that distant from everything as some reviewers suggest. by car, it is maximum a 5 minutes drive to St Anne, where you can find fantastic beaches and many bars/restaurants to eat/drink. Le Gosier is a bit further, but can be reached in 10-15 minutes. The accomodation is in a very quiet place, so if sleeping well is important for you, it is a really good location. Here is a list of pros and cons:

Pros:
- The room is OK, though a bit dated
- Sea view (if you chose a room with sea view)
- Breakfast is a nice continental French type meal (very fresh and delicious croissante and baguette with some fruits, jam and butter plus coffee, tea). Don't expect English breakfast with bacon, egg, etc.
- Location: close to the local beach (5 minutes by walk) and short drive to St Anne.
- Calm and quiet location
- Bed is comfortable

Cons:
- The really bad thing (for me at least) was that the wall between the bedroom and the bathroom (including toilet) was not completed from the bottom to the ceiling, there was a 50-100 cm gap missing from the top. Additionally, the bathroom door couldn't be closed comletely as there was no latch on it. So it is not nice for obvious reasons...
- The wooden beams holding the roof together poured some resin and it was quite disgusting when they dropped on the ground.
- It didn't really concern me, but others may have a problem with the fact that in the room we stayed, the WiFi was not working at all (probably due to the distance from the access point). As I didn't plan to be on the internet very much during my vacation, I didn't really care. However, if they say there is free WiFi in the room then let's provide that.

In summary, this is not a 5 star Sheraton hotel and it looks a bit dated with some inconveniences with the bathroom. However, it is in a good location with close proximity to the beach and also has some local charm that you start to appreciate when you see the resorts in other areas of the island. And the last point is that this accomodation is quite cheap compared to others on the island, so I think it is value for money.

Room Tip: We were in the room the closest to the upper gate. It has a good sea view, but with the inconvenienc...

Yesterday I booked a nights accommodation at this hotel for July. The booking was made through easytobook.com. The rate was offered as 73euros payable at the hotel. I received a confirmation of the booking with the price as initially agreed.

This morning I received an e-mail from the hotel (In French) telling me that the rate I had agreed was only available on 4 night stays and that the price for a single night would be 99 euros. I have contacted easytobook.com and they are taking it up with the hotel. I have not yet heard the outcome but if the price remains at 99 euro's the booking will be cancelled.

I have never stayed at the hotel but this has not given me a favourable impression of the Cap Sud Caraibes.

This charming little family run hotel is a wonderful place to stay. It is near the beach and a short taxi ride to the community of St Anne.

Breakfast by the pool was a perfect way to start the day.

I would definately visit again!

The place was worth the visit because of a decent room and a nice breakfast area in an outdoor room, and the homefeeling you got from the nice lady in charge and her dog and cat.

There were some downsides thought. The place is about a 10 min drive from the city. You can be stuck outside of the property when you arrive , since there is no way of getting into the place without a key (you get your own key). If the owner is not there you just have to wait till they're back. Also, the pool was full off dead insects, and I guess the owner doesn't necessarily clean the pool too often when there are few people around.
