Nice Hotel but no barPosted Jan 13, 2013
The restraurant & bar lets this hotel down. It has no atmosphere when dining or drinking. Its more of drinks service with a bottle of local beer at 4.5 euros - 50% more than in town. And no bar to actually sit at. The swimming pool is more of plunge pool.

Need to ImprovePosted Apr 23, 2012 on Hotels.com
Generally the stay suited its purpose but it is definitely not a place to stay for leisure. The hotel needs something to attract custom and cannot rely on a few meeting rooms when the quality of the experience leaves a lot to be desired. Particularly disappointing was the quality of service and food in the restaurant. It is not a measure of the staff, although they do need training it is very poor vision and management. It is just not worth the money. Service is poor, ambience is poor and the food is unimaginative and stogy. The hotel is in urgent need of a high quality restaurant to attract custom. As it is I would not go again.

Squash hotel - staff fantasticPosted Jan 16, 2012 on Hotels.com
We were booked in for 6 nights but had to extend our stay as my father was being treated at the hospital and he stayed longer than expected. The reception staff were fantastic (in a country that speaks limited English and us no French!!) they allowed us to keep the room on a rolling bases as we didn't know when my father could leave. The staff could not do enough for us. The breakfast which was included was diffinitly worth getting up for!!

Karibea Squash an average business hotelPosted Mar 4, 2010
The Karibea Squash is a 10 minute walk to Fort-de-France, overlooking the ocean about 5 blocks up from the shoreline. We were expecting a room with a kitchenette, we arrived and learned that they only had one such room. So the pictures on the web do not reflect the actual rooms. The included breakfast is quite good, including fresh fruit, cereals, buns, croissants, eggs, bacon, sausage, fresh juices. However all other meals are mediocre. Walk to town for better food in the same price range. The pool is gated in where you can fit 3 lounge chairs back to back on one side and seating space and legs dangling in the water on the other. It's an ok size pool but not one to lounge around. It was perfect for our 2 night stay awaiting our flight after our real trip. I wouldn't stay there longer. The Karibea Squash is perfect for business dealings, or those wanting to explore Fort-de-France for a day but it is not a resort type hotel or even one with the nice lounge area around the pool. You are only alloud to sit at the bar or right by the pool. The outdoor shaded part of the patio with tables and chairs are off limits even when the restaurant is closed and yes someone will check on you. I would rate this hotel as a 2.5 star in general terms and 1 star if I compare it to a 5 star Sheraton Hotel.

Quiet and ComfortablePosted Jul 29, 2009
Very nice and quiet. Walking distance to downtown. Excellent Saturday evening dinner, both food and service.

A good hotel in Fort-de-FrancePosted Jan 12, 2007
The Squash Hotel, a fairly large establishment, is located outside the centre of Fort-de-France, barely within walking distance. The shortest route from city centre to the hotel passes through a small slum, which may feel somewhat uncomfortable to walk through. However, the hotel was pleasant, and the room was spacious and comfortable, and had a good adjustable air conditioning system. The breakfast, with fresh fruit, croissants and other pastries, was delicious. The hotel has a swimming pool, too, located next to the bar. Though I did not consider the room cheap, I found the hotel good value for the money. I do recommend the hotel to anyone travelling to Martinique.
