It isn’t easy to do.

To take a hotel more than a half century old, to keep it fresh while retaining a certain timeless quality.

At Guadeloupe’s Auberge de la Vieille Tour hotel, that’s precisely what happens.

This gem of a small hotel in the tourist-friendly Gosier section of the island of Grande-Terre is one full of charm, history and a great pathway to discover the things that make Guadeloupe unique.

And there’s nowhere better to discover the place than in one of the hotel’s ocean view rooms.

They’re spacious, airy and blessed with show-stopping views of the turquoise waters of Grand-Terre, along with some of tiny, nearby Ilet du Gosier, if you’re lucky.

But the best part of this hotel is the service — warm, friendly and perhaps the best of any hotel in Guadeloupe.

In other words, a great way to see Guadeloupe.
