Cap-Haïtien (Okap in Kreyol) is Haiti’s second largest city and the largest in the North. It was founded during French colonial rule in 1670 as Cap Francais. The name change took place immediately after Haitians won their independence.

The city has a better developed tourist infrastructure than most Haitian cities.

The Cap Haitien International Airport is the second largest airport in Haiti, the airport connects Cap-Haitiens to airports like Miami International Airport, Providenciales International Airport, Cibao International Airport and others in the Caribbean.

The Haitian government recently signed a deal with Venezuela for the international airport. As of September 13th, 2010, a 1300 meters concrete runway was being built by Haitian firms and personnel working under the supervision of a cubano-venezuelan firm.

HOTEL DU ROI CHRISTOPHE

This was my first trip to Haiti, in June 2005. I have not stayed at any other hotel in Haiti. I stayed at this hotel on 2 nights in different rooms, and was able to visit a suite also.

This is a good hotel. There are rooms available with air conditioning or just a ceiling fan. The suites are big. TVs are in the rooms. Each room has a separate bathroom with shower, sink and toilet. The bedsheets, pillowcases, and towels were clean. Beds and pillows were clean. Toilet paper and good soap were provided. Floors were very clean. Bathrooms were clean. Furniture and fixtures were old but clean.


The hotel is located in a nice part of town, close to a police station (so it's safe). Short taxi ride to the airport. http://www.tripadvisor.com


HOTEL DU MONT JOLI

The Mont Joli was hands down the best hotel in Cap-Haitien. The location is unbeatable, with fabulous views of Cap-Haitien, providing opportunities to watch breathtaking sunrises and sunsets. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating, especially the bartender, Tony. The rum punches are unbeatable and the restaurant serves quality food at reasonable prices. The pool is clean and deep and rooms were comfortable with air conditioning and cable television. An easy walk down into town, the Mont-Joli is centrally located and tours can be easily arranged from the hotel. A real gem. http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g147308-d152112-r35461475-Mont_Joli-Cap_Haitien_Haiti.html#CHECK_RATES_CONT


Auberge au Picolet

I have been traveling to Haiti for over 40 years. This trip I was bumped from my usual hotel to the Auberge Au Picolet. It is right on the ocean. The hotel was spotless, the rooms were immaculate, there was plenty of hot water, The AC worked perfectly. The electricity was 24 hours. The place was quite. The food.... it was gourmet quality. When I return to Haiti, I will make reservations at the Auberge au Picolet in Cap Haitien, Haiti. http://www.tripadvisor.com

This is why we won't get a lot of tourist or our own compatriots going to the country. Prices like that are just outrageous to be honest. People can go to a safer country with a better reputation for less. Its better that they dont' put a price online if you ask me.

exactly like right next door. I'm just wondering who they're marketing this place to because that's a tough sell at that price.

It is a house on private secluded area...... accommodating 10 people....... with staff and all amenities included in the price.....for seven nights.

It is not a regular hotel

It is not geared to regular tourists.

A well to do family or a group of friends....looking for a week of retreat and relaxation........even with 5 people it comes to about $100/night.

It is not overpriced.

before it was sold for nothing at all, the Hotel Mon Joli was one of the many private houses belonging to the sanchez-martinez family. jose sanchez-martinez, consule general to the d.r., passed it on to his son rolando who squandered the money away.

check the archives.
