Fodor's Expert Review Engoulevent
22 rte. de l'Union Didier, Fort-de-France, n/a Martinique, 97200, Martinique
This small B&B in a suburban house (about 10 minutes from Fort-de-France) has deluxe suites with contemporary decor, as well as Wi-Fi and other attractive amenities and high-end touches. The Continental breakfast service is lovely, with jams made from the tropical fruit that ripens on trees outside. The pool is a pleasure and there are a couple of fitness machines nearby. Guests are given clickers for the mechanized security gate. This upscale neighborhood is very close to the center of Fort-de-France, but when you're lying in your terrace hammock, you hear nothing but the songbirds. You might even see an engoulevent (hummingbird) whirring over a flower. Dinner is also available (if requested in advance), but there are restaurants nearby.
