Not only Public Beach. Public everyspace of the Village They offer to everybody the Restaurants, the Bar, the drinks, the sports, first time I sow they sell the services for the single day, so you have every day strangers all over the Village. Also when you just arrive NOT BEFORE they advice you of the BAD SMELL from the algae.

Our one-week stay was nothing less than wonderful. There are activities for every member of the family -- clubs for children of different ages, tennis lessons from a pro, optional excursions, evening shows (albeit by the staff, amateurs), beautiful beach shaded by palm trees, activities in the pool and on the beach, and more. Every member of the staff is... More

We go to a different Club Med location every year. We would definitely go back to La Caravelle. Beaches were A1, GOs and staff were amazing from baggage handlers to the Cheif of village. Special shout out to "Nanou" the fitness instructor (Zumba, Pilates, etc) who was outstanding. David the head of Bar and Loïc the sailing instructor. Circus/ trapeze... More

First time at a Club Med, and it will not be the last!! We stayed here at the end of April with our 2 kids (age 4 and 7), and we had a great time. We are no strangers to all-inclusive, and this is definitely one of our favorites. First of all, the food here is outstanding. I have never... More

First, the beach - all rooms give a view of the beach which is breathtaking, warm and great for all ages. The food is also very good and up to French standards (the house wines also good). There is so much to do that if you can't get bored - and no one is pushy to get you to join... More

I understand that Club Med is now "family friendly." When we went to La Caravelle for our 10th anniversary in 1981 most of the beach area was topless and a good portion was a nude beach. Is that all changed with the "family friendly" designation? We loved it the way it was. "When did you travel?" does not give us... More

I just returned from a week stay at the Club Med La Caravelle and had a good time. My first time to Guadeloupe and my first time staying in a Club Med hotel. I was a solo female traveller and felt safe and welcome at all times. However, this is definitely more of a family - oriented hotel, and then... More

We spent seven nights at this property with our 10-year-old daughter and absolutely loved it. The food is good and plentiful. It's a huge relief not to have to deal with waiters and a check every time you sit down to eat. The exercise classes were great -- Jennifer, who teaches different kinds of yoga and stretching (including the vaunted... More

My wife and I with our two pre-teen girls weren't sure what to expect and I frankly went expecting to be disappointed. Only my wife speaks french so I was worried about our ability to handle a french resort and we'd read many of the reviews that do point out that the resorts facilities, like many Club Meds, are dated...

Loved this place, though I had premium rooms in Marie Gallant. The beach is excellent. The activities are excellent. The martinis, however, are terrible. Even if you order a "martini sec". This is one of the few resorts that I've been to where they have real catamarans, and they even have a skiff. While the circus activities looked fun, we... More
