Dated accommodations
Combining a traditional Caribbean atmosphere with business-savvy facilities, Hôtel La Batelière is ideal for both work and play on Fort-de-France Bay. With a business center, one of the largest conference centers in the Caribbean, and rooms outfitted with large desks and free Wi-Fi access, travelers can only blame the allure of swaying palm trees and azure waters for any lapse in productivity. When it's time to relax, visitors can head to the pool (which boasts views of the island's capital city, Fort-de-France) or unwind with a treatment at the on-site spa. End the day with Creole-style eats at Le Bleu Marine restaurant or Creole-French fusion fare at Lili's Beach Bar, or enjoy some tunes with a cocktail in hand at the piano bar. But even with the heavenly Martinique landscape, recent guests said Hôtel La Batelière is need of refurbishment, citing worn rooms and common areas as the main disappointments while staying here.

Critic Reviews



The best full-service hotel in Fort-de-France nevertheless gets mixed reviews from most travelers because the hotel (and especially the standard rooms) need a major renovation. ... That said, the lobby area does have rattan-weave, French furnishings, and the superior rooms on the higher floors have been redone with comfortable beds and contemporary bedding and accessories, including a working desk, Wi-Fi, LCD TV (with international channels), and a balcony with limited sea views.
