La Flamboyant Hotel
Ranked #6 of 7 Hotels in Roseau
Reviewed 18 January 2017

Pros:
+ Wifi worked well
+ There was a bar downstairs
+ The location is perfect, smack dab in the middle of the city. Although in such a small place, I feel like a lot of places have a great location. This place was right next to shopping areas, a pharmacy, an ATM, a Chinese restaurant (which was always open, convenient since a lot of the local spaces had funky hours that didn't match our funky schedule).
+ The staff was incredibly friendly. One lovely lady let us sit at the bar and drink while she called around finding our next hotel in the next city over. She put a lot of work into as well.
+ They'll arrange a cab for you.
+ Rooms were basic but tidy. The AC worked well, too. We could turn those rooms into refrigerators, and when you've spent the day hiking, this is great.
+ Breakfast seemed to be eggs (omelette, scrambled, whatever). Ham or Bacon, tasty juice, tea, coffee, lots of fruit. The cook was sweet.
+ They accepted cards, where most hotels seemed to only want cash.
+ We kept showing up with no reservations, and they always had room for us. HOWEVER, this could be as we were travelling more at shoulder season, so maybe it is best to make a reservation anyway if you're travelling later in the year.

Cons
- The bar kept running out of cold beer, but I suppose this was more our fault than theirs (a family of travelling alcoholics). It also would close unexpectedly. Plan to probably drink elsewhere, or bring beers back to your room from the store.

The hotel is located right in the city of Roseau. Great view from up top. Needs to open its restaurant for lunch and dinner. I enjoyed the fact that the hotel is walking distance from the ferry. Nice .

Room Tip: The FR Floor is the best.

Didn't stay, but we ordered food. After 45 min, they came and asked..."what did you order". 1.5 hrs later we got our food. OK, it is a 3rd world country, but this was pretty bad. Don't go here to eat.

After our reservations elsewhere fell through we were thrilled to get a room at La Flamboyant. We were also thrilled to have A/C :). The staff really warmed to us and we felt like friends by the time we left. The rooms are basic but very clean and everything works great. It was cleaned daily. A really good breakfast is included (eggs, sausage, fruit, etc) and there is a water cooler in the lobby. Free wifi in the lobby but it did not work in our room.

The surrounding night life can be loud so bring earplugs if you are staying on the weekend. Sitting out on the front verandas provides great people watching. It really is in the heart of the activity in Roseau.

Do not stay here. There is a blaring karaoke bar directly across the road that can stay open until 4:30am or so every night. The lack of air con in a lot of the rooms means that you have to leave your windows open, which lets the cacophony in. We had three room changes (after they gave our room to someone else), were taken to 'our' second room; walked in to find someone else already in there. The breakfast was very average (unless you like waiting 45mins for cold toast). We tried to pay our bill four times, but the receptionist got distracted each time. She then told us to withdraw the cash from the atm (at a fee to us of about (12usd) because the credit card machine wasn't working. She tried to overcharge us, which we wonder if she might have pocketed the extra cash,had we not insisted she try their credit card pos.
The wifi was very crap- dropping in and out every couple of mins and as described in other reviews- was much better in the lobby.
The number 10 room on each floor's windows fronted onto a balcony that was accessible by all guests, and the windows there had no locks, making that room unsafe. There is also no safe in the room and they don't like to hold stuff at reception.
The manager was very pleasant and some of the reception staff were friendly. The gentleman serving breakfast was trying very hard.
Our final room had good aircon and the beds were reasonably comfy. The shower was good.
Location was very reasonable, aside from the bar across the road.
(We found another place that looked much more homely and for $66-77usd per night called Ma Bass on Field's Lane- if you want to try that?)
