We enjoyed staying with the mythical Tante Arlette, and her charming daughter, in this house built a hundred years ago by Tante Arlette's father.
Nice little village in the quiet North of the island, we initially planned this trip to hike the "famous" trail between Grand Rivière & Le Prêcheur, but (knew before we arrived)it is closed; but this should not stop you going, there is the wonderful "La Crabière" walk in Le Lorrain (a nice day trip where you can visit the JM Rhum distillery) and others along the coast. And Grand Rivière itself where you can swim (the sea is lovely and warm) and then just take some time to admire the sunset and watch darkness fall over the sea, it is so peaceful
The hotel restaurant is good, and we had the menu of the day in the evening, but you can of course ask for something else. Breakfast was served on the terrace in the morning and was ok.
The room was nicely decorated (we were in a new room), the bed comfortable, but we would have preferred to stay in one of the "old" rooms as they have a (shared) terrace overlooking the street.
Special mention for the jacuzzi on the roof, that is also a very pleasurable experience especially when it is dark.
And second special mention to all the staff who were friendly and efficient

Everything great but the food. When you have such a nice menu at the website and in reality just the choice between two different plates is it a little bit sad...
Anyway really good quality at everything. Especialy the rooftop-jacuzzi ;-)

Dear guest,

Thank you for sharing your impressions of your stay. For dinner we reduce the menu to offer you a good service. I advise future guests to order the main courses before your arrival.
The rooftop jacuzzi is a must that lot of guest love.
Hope to see you again in our beautiful village.

Sincerely,

Dear Jeff,

We were very happy to read your comment. Thank you.
Indeed, there is the beautiful black sand beach called Sinaï near the hotel.
Hope to see you in Grand Riviere for your next visit.

Sincerely,

We spent three nights at Tante Arlette while we explored the north of the island and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. We had a cleverly and attractively decorated room with a great attached shower room. We loved Grand'Riviere, it felt just as it was, the end of the road and the village was also interesting. The hotel, known for its food, certainly lived up to expectations with wonderful main courses, carefully cooked and presented. The only downside was the lack of variety in desserts, we did not want ice cream two nights running! Breakfast was also good. The terrace/lounge area upstairs is a peaceful place to sit and overall we would recommend this as a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Modern quiet rooms at rear of the hotel

My wife and I stayed there for three nights this past January. Our French is extremely limited but the staff did their best and we all managed.Subrina works there and speaks the most English was very helpful. The Matriarch/Owner Arlette is nice and runs a tight ship,very inspiring to see her go off on her daily walk! The hotel rooms are clean and roomy enough,the staff is always cleaning. Hot tub on roof top is a nice touch.The Two days would be enough in this area. There is hiking around and a pool in the river to splash around.The smoothie place by the marina delicious. FlipFlop Restaurant avoid,where we stayed was the best food in the Northern area. Lunchtimes can get busy with buses from cruise ships.If your flight lands after 4:30 I would wait to drive the next day after a long travel day it takes almost two hours to drive from airport and there are very few street lights!!Will be back...
