    Location 4.56 /10

    The Paladien Manganao is located opposite a lagoon on the Atlantic coast, 3 miles from Saint-Francois and 25 miles from Pointe-a-Pitre airport (40-60 min by car).

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    The Paladien has 241 rooms (270 to 323 ft² for 2-3 people) and apartments (323 ft² for 2 to 4 people; 540 ft² for 2 to 6 people). All were fully renovated in December 2007. They have individual air conditioning, telephone, shower and a balcony with table and chairs. The apartments have a bathtub. All the accommodation is well designed and spacious with plenty of storage space. Only bad point: the lack of light despite the extra lighting. Most overlook the garden.

    Overview 7.45 /10

    Opened in 1996, the Manganao is formed of small buildings in the Creole style with pastel colours in a large domain set back from the pool, the beach and the restaurant. In 2005, major works were completed to extend water supply into the gardens and electricity supply. A small plant nursery has been created next to the main restaurant. Eventually, the director of the hotel hopes to develop the hotel's fitness facilities. The fitness room, which has since 2005 been housed in what used to be the disco of the former mill, provides sporty types with a breathtaking view over the lagoon. Definitely the most beautiful room on the island.
    The large pool decorated with a rock can be crossed by a little bridge and has a children's pool that is pleasant if slightly noisy.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    A restaurant-buffet with an indoor dining room and a terrace where there also a cooking demonstration space for grills, a snack bar, and a bar. The cuisine is nothing special, but a lot of effort goes into presenting and designing the buffets. Note the themed buffets which are different every night: seafood, Italian, Caribbean...
    The Ti'Jardin restaurant has a plate of crayfish for 24 euros.

    Beach 7.45 /10

    A good size for a hotel beach, and well laid out, it overlooks a lagoon with crystalline waters. A comfortable place. The watersports facilities are rather minimal.

      The Golf Village is quite far from the resort of Saint-Francois. Built in a vast area on the high ground of the town, it is large enough to comfortably accommodate those who want action and those who want to laze around.
