This particular hotel is located off a beach suffering from an invasion of Sargassum. It is seaweed with a very pungent smell of rotting fish and swamp water. We arrived late at night on Tuesday March 12, 2019, and although we did notice the smell, it wasn't until the sun was beaming on the beach that the smell became absolutely unbearable. By 8am the following morning, the smell had caused me to throw up 4 times. After speaking to the manager of the resort, we were offered another room in the property further away from the beach yet still within the confines of "the village". I turned down the offer as the smell was wafting through the entire property. We checked out before 10am after the manager offered to reach out to their offices in Paris to discuss obtaining a partial refund. To add insult to injury, I tried getting in contact with them with regards to items we left in the closet. I have yet to hear back from them. Unfortunately, the nearby beach was completely covered with Sargassum, the stores along the beach were all closed, and although there were a number of workers clearing up the Sargassum, the smell was impossible to mask. I would not recommend this hotel, nor do I find it just to have this property listed on hotels.com without a proper disclaimer as to the issue they're dealing with. Now we are out a couple hundred dollars and two days of our vacation were ruined as a result of this oversight. In hindsight I would've never stayed in this area of Martinique.
