Best Value Hotels in Martinique

View all Martinique Hotels

Martinique is a far-flung French outpost, meaning that the euro is its official monetary unit. This could equal a not-so-hot exchange rate for some non-European travelers, but with these affordable hotel picks, everyone can see the Caribbean island -- even those hailing from countries with weaker currencies.

  1. Residence Oceane is a self-catering budget hotel built into a steep hillside overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. With no restaurant or bar on-site and the nearest restaurants requiring a 20-minute drive, the hotel caters to self-sufficient guests, mostly families, who prefer to stock their small refrigerators and cook simple meals at the kitchenettes on their outdoor terraces. The rooms (some renovated) are simple and bright with beach-inspired decor and terraces that look out at the Atlantic and the flowering gardens. While not located directly on the beach, guests can walk or drive to Anse L’Étang, a beach that's popular with surfers.

  2. Hôtel Corail Résidence is a laid-back, family-friendly property with a residential vibe, casual restaurant and bar, and quiet beach within walking distance. A variety of tile-floored rooms and apartments come with kitchenettes, flat-screen TVs, outdoor dining space, and colorful bedding and artwork. Although its location is one of the hotel's greatest assets -- it's located minutes away from the N5 highway that traverses the island -- a car is necessary to get to local restaurants. Those seeking more amenities might want to check out the larger Pierre and Vacances, also in Saint Luce.

  3. The Residence du Village Creole is a collection of 23 apartments designed for budget-conscious guests. Part of the Village Creole, a mixed development of colorful buildings designed to resemble a French-Creole style village, the hotel is near several restaurants, shops, and cafes as well as Anse Mitan beach and the ferry that shuttles to Fort du France. Apartments feature kitchenettes, dining tables, and small terraces overlooking the mall-like, pedestrian village. They are bright and spacious, but they lack amenities such as toiletries; guests should also note that noise from the nearby village could be bothersome and that the property lacks a pool. Those seeking a more serene setting might enjoy Hotel Panoramic, perched on a hillside overlooking the beach.

  4. A rambling, 153-room property built to resemble a Creole village, the budget-friendly Hotel Bambou features rows of colorful, connected bungalows with vaulted ceilings and small front porches. Rooms are rustic and basic, with pine-paneled walls and natural-wood furnishings, like the platform-style beds. A pool, access to Anse Mitan beach, and a huge dining room with nightly entertainment are there for guests. The hotel has colorful gardens with lots of flowers and banana trees and access to the calm waters of Anse Mitan beach, but those seeking more modern accommodation should check out Hotel Bakoua.
