We have been to Martinique numerous times and wanted a hotel near the airport for an early departure. While the hotel was recently renovated, the actual room was old and worn. The seat cushions were filthy, the bathroom door had visual damage and the bed was as hard as a rock. Our "garden view" room had a view of dirt only. Maybe the so-called vegetation will grow someday. On a positive note, it was the last day of Carnival and there was a mini-Parade through the grounds and the Martinique Ballet of traditional dance was in the lobby. Without that option, this hotel would have been a bust. The infinity pool was large, but filled with children snorkeling while the beach down the hill went unused.

Room Tip: Stay at Brise Marine down the road.

Located on the ocean, west of fishing village of Sainte Luce. We had sea view " junior suite", queen size bed, sitting area with dorm refrigerator, terrace overlooking the sea, and 2 bathrooms with showers no tub. No in room coffee maker. Rooms are clean and had good air conditioning but furniture and linens have seen better days. Guests can use 3 pools including a beautiful, new infinity pool. There are several beautiful beaches within walking distance but the hotel does not rent any water sport or beach equipment. Chairs and umbrellas for the beach are not provided. There is evening "entertainment" which ranges from DJ to local bands. Room rate included a breakfast buffet with fresh fruit and was similar to breakfasts provided at European hotels except that the only coffee provided was instant. Hotel provides lunch and dinner buffets for flat charge. Beverages are not included. We ate dinner at the hotel the first night. Quality was poor and cost 45E each person plus drinks. Some of the front desk staff speak English. Staff are friendly and try to be helpful. Very few guests speak English as their primary language. No written information about the hotel and its services are provided in English. There is no information guide in the room either in French or English. There was free Wi-Fi in our room as well as small flat screen TV with French stations.

The purpose of this review is to explain why I cut my trip short. Simply put, there was nothing worth staying for. This hotel charges like a nice hotel, $200/night, but in reality it is more like a motel, at least by American standards. Let me elaborate.

FOOD: This was one of my major complaints. The only food available was the restaurant, which serves buffet meals. Each meal is about $40. So, basically you will spend $120 a day (per person) on perfectly okay self-serve food. For another $10 you can have a DIY rum punch in a plastic cup! And nothing is really delicious. It is all okay. The coffee comes from a machine that mixes hot water with instant coffee. If you want a beverage-- even soft drinks-- this costs extra, even though the buffet is so expensive (yet so basic.)

THE ROOMS: The bedrooms are very small. I stayed in a room with two twin beds. The mattress was five inches thick. (Yes, I measured.) The bedding was thin and worn as were the graying towels. (And the towels, like everything else were strictly rationed. Good luck if you need a towel for your body and another one for your hair.) It was like a Motel 6 circa 1979. There was no clock in the room. The complementary toiletries were only a small shampoo and a small soap. Not even lotion was included. Nothing was provided to make the place comfortable. There was a little balcony with a plastic table and chairs, but the "sea view" was a view of a construction site. (There is a plus: two bathrooms in a suite.)

SERVICE: This hotel does nothing it make guests feel comfortable. No one is available to help you with your bags. (I saw a busload of elderly folks struggling with their suitcases!) There is no poolside drink service. When you do take a drink from the bar to the pool or your room, you are told that you must return the empty glass to the bar. There are no little extra touches to make you feel welcome.

RANDOM: During dinner there was a fashion show (?) in which very young women paraded around in bikinis while male guests took photos and applauded.

INSULT TO INJURY: When I made clear my plans to leave early, they would not refund me a dime.

THE UPSIDE: Martinique is a beautiful island. Also, the infinity pool, recently installed, is beautiful, particularly is you angle yourself where you don't have to look at any of the construction sites.

IN CONCLUSION: This hotel should hire a consultant to help them understand what a resort experience should be like. Obviously, they are making an effort because they installed the lovely infinity pool and there is evidence of landscaping. (The photo of the pool leads you to believe that this is a different sort of hotel, IMHO) Someone should explain that the thing that makes a resort an ideal vacation is COMFORT and there is little to no comfort at this hotel.

(You know it was an unpleasant experience if I would come back to winter in New York three days early!)

The hotel needs to realize that not all its guest speak / read French. I originally booked at Karibea Resort Résidence Caribia (the sister property) when I arrived the security gate was closed with nobody around. I walked to the reception desk and it was also closed with nobody around. I had to ask an English speaking guest where “Reception” was. She directed me across the street to Karibea Resort Amyris. Once again the security gate was close and all instructions were in French. When I got to reception I was told that I would be staying at the Amyris not the Résidence Caribia.

The Amyris is located basically on the coast, a walking path takes you to several beaches and is used by locals who seemed to enjoy walking and jogging on the trail. This was a plus. Also you can use the amenities at any of the three resorts they own. Nothing else about the property was exciting. The rooms were poorly laid out. The outdoor kitchen seems like a nice idea but if you want a cold drink in the middle of the night or when it’s raining, the outdoor kitchen becomes pretty inconvenient. For the price, Amyris / Résidence Caribia is not really worth it and the "Peak Winter Rates" are even more!

Though it's not that bad I still wouldn't advise you to go to this hotel. That is if you are a couple; it's a different story for families maybe. The whole huge complex screams "mass tourism" and we were simply missing the extra/the love. The rooms are quite big (two bathrooms) and WIFI is available in the room which is nice.

For both dinner and breakfast the performance was very poor. I always tried to leave the place as fast as possible. For a little more money you can get very good cuisine at the nearby L'Hibiscus or LE WILLKAT (by car within 5 min/2 km). For breakfast you get a plastic tray with cheap/simple silverware. The fruits served are not sweet - I wonder how that is even possible in the Caribbean - and the scrambled eggs were cold and very liquid.

Nice beaches are a short walk away and you can choose whether you want one with waves or not.

Room service seems yet to be systematic. The one day we put the "Do not disturb" sign out we first got a phone call to make sure we don't need anything and then secondly somebody came to our room to get a signature that we are okay with no cleaning service for the day.

Many employees spoke at least some English which was nice.

To get around you almost certainly need a car. There is an Enterprise Rent-A-Car onsite; others seem to be close in other hotels nearby.

Room Tip: Suites starting with 4 (4XXX) are closest to the ocean
