Your thoughts on the the Fench West Indies

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are searching for a place to go on vacation. We need a serious vacation...we just opened a new business and have a 10 month old, plus I am turning 30. So instead of our normal yearly vaca to Maui, we decided to venture somehwere a little more further, still looking for a tropical getaway. I am thinking about the French Indies Isles...Martinique, St. Barths, St. Martin, Guadeloupe. We are looking for the following:
A resort that will sweep us off our feet with good service, beautiful surroundings, either a pool to lounge at with service, or a beach with service. An island that is colorful, fun, lively, with great food and music, great people. Not so much into things to see or do as we really just want to relax. Maybe strolls through the local markets, shops etc. Mostly just beach, spa, food and drinks. We are thinking about the French Indies because I love France and thought it would be a nice break from the site-seeing while enjoying the food, language and mix of culture. But which island would you recommend and any hotel recommendations?!?
