Just returned

Jump to last reply

We just returned from seven days on Guadeloupe, and must say this is as near a perfect vacation as we have ever enjoyed. We stayed at the Royal Cariebe just outside of Le Moule on the eastern island. The resort is being renovated by a French company after almost being totally destroyed ten years ago. The restored portions are beautiful, the staff friendly, and helpful, although not very inclined to go out of their way for English speaking guests. This is primarily due to the language barrier, and the fact that only seven of the guests during the week we were there spoke English, the staff who did speak English and others though were helpful if we went searching for help.
Guadeloupe is a beautiful island, the beaches, the national park, the volcano, the banana plantations, etc. The food had two types, it was either wonderful, or hardly edible. St. Francois on the eastern island had several wonderful dining areas. If we were to return we might stay more centrally located, although Le Moule was so peaceful, after winding our way on the scenic, but winding narrow roads are resort was a peaceful haven. We loved it. If you're considering going. Go for it.
