Accommodations offer superb garden or bay views, according to past visitors
Guests say rooms appear worn and restaurants' dishes are expensive
Once a family colonial-style residence associated with the French East India Company, Hotel Bakoua preserves its authentic ambiance with Creole-style rooms and decorative accents. Uncluttered spaces, cane furniture and rich woods create an inviting retreat, especially for travelers who need a hotel not too far from Martinique Aimé Césaire International Airport. Accommodations offer furnished balconies or terraces that overlook the property's garden or Fort-de-France Bay. Despite the scenery, recent guests said the guest rooms are dated and in need of a facelift. But a Martinique vacation isn't about sitting in your room – it's about enjoying warm turquoise waters. On-site activities include kayaking, paddleboarding and tubing. Hotel Bakoua also houses three restaurants and a bar, but reviewers give mixed feedback about the pricey cuisine.

Critic Reviews



Wrought-iron gates open to this lovely hotel, a throwback to gracious estate living, where you can cocoon yourself in colonial-era style. From the circular bar and the adjacent infinity pool, the views of the mountain peaks juxtaposed with the yachts in the bay are magical.


Named for the pointy, wide-brimmed straw hat worn in Martinique, Hotel Bakoua was the first hotel to open in the tourist area of Point du Bout. The largest hotel in the area, the 138-room, upper-middle-range Hotel Bakoua is set on a hillside hovering above a crescent-shaped stretch of white sand, overlooking Fort de France Bay and the twinkling lights of Martinique's capital city.
