“Best part of France in the Caribbean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

This tiny town is the best part of France in the Caribbean. Everything works well, and the people are great. You can walk to everything all over the island.

“Unspoiled paradise Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Yes, the ferry from Trois-Riviéres was very full and the sea was pretty rough, but it was really worth it. And we could immediately sense that this was a great idea to go and experience these special islands :Paradise unspoiled with perfect beaches. And next time in Guadeloupe I would really consider renting a house there to get more of this paradise under my skin.

“nice trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Great idea for a full-day trip from Guadeloupe. Very interesting to visit Fort of Napleon but you have to climb a lot or rent a scooter. Beautiful beaches with crystalline water.

“Great restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

We just had an incredible dinner at Au Bon Vivre, in Terre de Haut, Les Saintes, Guadaloupe. If you can get here, it is totally worth your time to slow down and have an incredible dinner at Au Bon Vivre. The staff is excellent and friendly, the food is amazing, the ambiance is stellar and the prices belie all that (read: reasonable). I'd highly recommend the inner patio dining area. By day, it looks a bit stark (when you might be making your reservation, as I did) but in the evening, it is magical. They have menus in English, if your French is not up to snuff, and the selection is simple, yet elegant. Definitely worth a visit ... you will not be disappointed!

“One of the best beaches of guadeloupe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

The beaches are clean and a lot of hidden beaches are available for swimming and snorkling
The boat trip was rough due to the bad weather,a must check before you engulf the journey across the canal on the ferry.Going through the Trois -Riviere is shorter than from Point a pitre.
Nice views are available on the island.
We'll recommend a visit if you're in Guadeloupe.
