Martinique Hotel Reviews
Larger hotels usually include a big buffet breakfast of eggs, fresh fruit, cheese, yogurt, croissants, baguettes, jam, and café au lait. Smaller relais (inns) often have open-air, terrace kitchenettes. There are only a few hotels that still have rooms in which smoking is allowed. Most hotels do not have elevators and many are built on hillsides, so if you have issues with stairs or with climbing paths, be sure to ask about that.
Private Villas and Condos
If you're staying a week or longer, you can often save money by renting a villa or apartment with a kitchen for preparing your own meals. The more upscale rentals come with French-speaking maids and cooks. Don't forget to add the cost of a car rental to your vacation budget.
