I stayed here only one night and it was a disaster. I could not sleep because of the noise. Fun place for a beer or a pizza but not so fun at bedtime! Staff was unresponsive to my concerns. I fled the next morning and found a much nicer establishment downtown Cayenne in a quiet neighbourhood.

Les Palmistes is my favorite hotel in Cayenne. Where I feel like a traveler of the 1930s. Because of the old-fashion charm and character of this typical creole town house. Built in 1890, historical monument today. In the early morning I’m used to have café crème and croissant on the quaint gallery and look at the passers-by on awakening Avenue du General De Gaulle Open since 1830 the Bar des Palmistes has also a special soul. Ambience is hot around the table. Like in the popular open air restaurant in the back patio. I like to stay in front bedrooms 1 or 2 where I can enjoy a nice view from the balcony over Place des Palmistes. Rooms are done up well, spacious, recently renovated, quiet, soundproofed, tastefully decorated in colonial style, cozy, with comfy beds, nice bathroom, original exotic wooden floor, window shutters. Only one flaw, service is uneven. But all in all I have a crush for Hotel des Palmistes.

Gorgeous villa and great location, nothing to add on those, they are ideal. The rooms and bathrooms are modern, the beds very comfortable though the sheets don't always seem very clean (dirt or humidity?). I'm glad All the staff is nice because the hotel doesn't offer much service : the reception is uncomfortable - no one stays behind the "front" desk (you have to wait or call the attention of any waiter happening to run by), which is by the way tiny and almost in the way of the restaurant, no one shows you the room, much less helps with the luggage, no information is provided in the rooms about the hotel either ; and the rooms cleanup is not very thorough. It's as if the hotel activity was a side job for the restaurant personnel... Fortunately I'm not fazed by that. However, I was bothered by the noise : the rooms are not at all sound proof so by the evening you hear all the night's life - the hustle and bustle of the bar downstairs and the place des Palmistes over the street, the screeching of the garbage truck, the voices of passersby who won't sleep at night... 3 stars because you can hardly see more beautiful in Cayenne, not more because the hotel would need to step up its game.

Perhaps the owner and manager were away, but this has got to be the worst service experience in a hotel. Self absorbed staff with zero interest for the clientele. We arrived and it took 15 minutes for a girl to come to the check in, she knew we were there but was too busy sitting ta a table chatting to a man. Finally came, no hello, no nothing. Told her we had a booking and our name, handed us the key and that was it. Did not even make us fill a form, show us the room, explain anything. The room as the hotel is tastefully designed, the room is spacious, comfortable and with upscale toiletries. A curtain and other small things were missing. Internet is bad, off most of the time. They have loud live music at the restaurant so you don't get a good night's sleep. The property has so much potential but first they must train or fire their pretentious staff to be an international standars establishment.

Ideally placed for a good view of the Place de Palmists. Hand pumped Heineken and all manner of Cocktails. Snacks nibbles and main-courses very reasonably priced. Be sure to check that the waiter understands which you want.
