The location is great and the service by a super nice petite young lady in the evening shift in reception was great (I could have used a bit more of enthusiasm from the rest of the staff). The atmosphere is super nice, the facilities are up to date and the food in the restaurant is good. The breakfast is quite basic though, the availability of products was scarce and working in hospitality I always expect breakfast tables to be cleaned up just after the customer is leaving. Otherwise the impression of the breakfast area could be deteriorated, which is what happened. In our 2 mornings many of the tables were still full of the dishes and glasses from the previous customers. Also, it would be great to offer a sustainable alternative to plastic straws in cocktails, they shouldn’t be used anymore. The rest was great! I recommend it and hope they improve these little things.

Stunning location, pool and food. The staff were super helpful and the breakfast buffet a delight. We stayed for two nights. Fresh sheets every day and lovely rooms. The views every morning we’re breathtaking.

Staff not as professional as expected for a 3 stars and at such price. Arrival with no special attention. it feels like embarrassing. Room full of mosquitos with no spray available, No bootle of water in the room at the arrival.
Breakfast with no fresh fruit, just a fruit salad coming from frozen food...
Never mind the dinner food. Another frozen food story.
That's a drama. I will not advise it.

Le Rayon Vert is a great base to have when exploring Basse-Terre. The view is simply breathtaking!

It was quite special to be able to return to
Le Rayon Vert after a day of scuba diving in both Deshaies and Bouillante. The hotel is off of the main road but the gites are built on a hillside overlooking La Coque Ferry. The rooms are extremely clean and the beds are very comfortable. All the rooms have a view of the bay. The rooms are rustic and simple and they don’t provide toiletries.

The best view to be had is from the infinity pool directly in front of the restaurant and bar. There is no place to watch the sunset better than from Le Rayon Vert. Thé bar serves gréât drinks and thé restaurant serves delicious and healthy local food especially fish and other seafood.

I loved the owner’s little dog who was always hanging out by the reception area, as well as the cat and the parrot at the entrance.

If you are looking for an excellent place to relax on a Carribean island, book a stay at Le Rayon Vert. (This is a very late review as I stayed here in June 2017 but upon writing this, I am seriously looking for an excuse to go back soon)

Room tip: Ask for a room that's closer to the restaurant to maximize the view

We thoroughly enjoyed our four day stay at Le Rayon Vert. The hotel is a 10 minute drive south of the village, you’ll need a car. Warm, welcoming and nicely casual, the hotel represents good value in the nicest part of Basse-Terre, close to restaurants and fabulous beaches as well as the Jardin Botanique.


A large infinity pool, large clean well furnished rooms with great shower rooms and terraces with sea views. Nice staff, attentive proprietors who work hard on the detail, car parking, a good bar and restaurant serving simple but well prepared food made from quality fresh ingredients. Good breakfast. Very peaceful and relaxed. Good value.


We came in May. May 8 is the Victory Day public holiday and the hotel was rammed full of locals coming for lunch then using the pool until the evening, car parking was not possible other than on the busy main road - and up a hill a fair distance.

I’d say avoid public holidays!

The pool is very well chlorinated. I developed chlorine burn. I swim every day for two hours in a chlorinated pool at home and yet have never had a problem. Maybe I was just unlucky here or just swam more than the other reviewers. That said you are 5 minutes from Grande Anse so what’s the problem? - the salt of the bay and a little anti-histamine cream helped sort out the burn of the pool!
