Beautiful surroundings. It used to be a very peaceful setting. Now the hotel caters more to parties and events. No peace and quiet and often loud music until midnight!

8/10 Very good

I recommend with a warning.
It's pretty to look at. Lots of wood if your into that, it's near a nice club, Cayenne. Ppl were polite. The breakfast was simple and a hot meal but it taste good. Negatives; so so many stairs, from my car to my room, 82 steps and no elevator. If you have bad knees, if you are old, this is not the place for you. Very many mosquitos so I used the mosquito net they provided. I would start here again. The price was only $55 per night. But I have good knees and I like the exercise.
