Along its coastline, French Guiana has over 3,000 beds for tourists in accommodation ranging from residences to star-rated hotels belonging to large chains (Best Western, Novotel, Logis de France) as well as around 100 beds in Clévacances rental properties.
Like the country itself, French Guiana’s hotel network is constantly developing, with four hotels boasting a 4-star rating in line with its new classification system, namely the Hôtel Ker Alberte and Novotel in Cayenne, and the Hôtel des Roches and Hôtel Mercure Ariatel in Kourou.
If you’re looking to venture into the country’s rural areas, perhaps along its rivers or deep into its forests, your sleeping arrangements will be very much “rustic” in nature. Sleep in the treetops or in carbets, typical wooden huts, which are classified according to the usual strict criteria of the centralised rural accommodation booking organisation, Gîtes de France.
The Gîtes d'Amazonie offer full-board accommodation as well as a range of fully supervised activities enabling visitors to explore their surroundings, while the carbets d'hôtes adhere to the same quality charter as French Bed & Breakfasts, providing an opportunity to enjoy a traditional breakfast and experience the day-to-day life of the owners.
All offer simple facilities which are clean, comfortable and in a stunning natural setting.
Traditional Bed & Breakfasts, and rural, holiday and stopover gîtes are also all available.
