Facing the island's best white-sand beaches, La Caravelle is one of the original clubs in the Caribbean, yet all the facilities—including the seafront restaurant and its deck—have a smashing, contemporary look. Known for its water sports, this Club Med also has land-based classes, like trapeze lessons. The stunning buffet restaurant has a separate air-conditioned section and much-better-than-average food. The best accommodations are in the oceanfront Marie-Galante
wing and the generous suites in Grande-Terre, all of which are glamorous and done in the club's color scheme: maroons, mauves, and reds. (To sample the wares, you can buy a day or night pass.) The children's programs are notably creative, including sports and mini-theater performances; there's even Club Med Baby Welcome Program.
