Overview

Travelers rave about hotel's friendly staff
Outdated accommodations, some say

Situated about 5 miles southeast of Pointe-à-Pitre, Basse-Terre's central city, beside an 18th-century windmill, Auberge de la Vieille Tour provides guests with beautiful surroundings and a rare glimpse of Guadeloupe's traditional sugar plantations. The hotel's Creole-style rooms showcase wooden furnishings and orange, green or yellow linens. Each accommodation comes equipped with a cable TV, a minibar, a desk and free Wi-Fi access. Though most recent guests report a satisfactory stay, some previous visitors said the rooms could benefit from a restoration. But for everything the guest rooms lack, former travelers said the kind and welcoming staff compensates by going above and beyond to ensure guests are comfortable. During the day, vacationers have access to an outdoor pool, a tennis court and a beach. For those craving a sample of Caribbean flavors, there are a restaurant and a snack shack on-site. Tropical cocktails, including many featuring one or more of 40-plus rums, can be enjoyed at the cozy Lounge Bar.

READ MORE 

At this island classic built around an historic sugar mill, everyone loves the initial welcome: a cool drink and citrus-scented towels dispensed by ladies in white eyelet uniforms. After a day at the beach it's back to your bi-level room, with its glass-enclosed bathroom, to watch the lighthouse begin its nightly blink (ask for rooms 85 to 90).
