“Comfortable and stylish”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Just returned from Marie- Galante.
Stayed in apartment " Nature" on half board. Gorgeous apartment very comfortably furnished with beautiful terrace- a complete outdoor living room complete with hammock and kitchen. Very charming hostess. Superb breakfast- fresh local fruit, fruit-juice, yoghourt, ham, eggs, bread, pancakes, waffles- far more than we could eat!
Evening meal was also very good. Very minor criitcism, could do with a few different vegetables as we ate there for 4 nights.
Nice pool area, again very nicely furnished.
A pedestal fan on terrace would have be useful in the evenings. There is a ceiling fan over the breakfast area but a nice breeze on the terrace would help to keep the mozzies off and keep you cool. Would recommend it.

Room Tip: All of the apartments looked lovely!

This review is a difficult one to write, as I feel (and hope) that our stay will not reflect yours, however it is important that travellers have the full picture.

We visited Marie-Galante in August as a family. The location is very good... the beach is not at your doorstep, but is not too far away. The beaches themselves are superbe, though small.

We stayed in bungalow Soleil which is located directly in front of the swimming area. The pool is nice, and in good condition. The room is very nicely furnished for the price, tasteful and in good condition. All the usual amenities in a good hotel plus a nice little outdoor kitchen and table.

The kids slept on a couch which converts to a sofa. Their mosquito net was filled with holes and the kids awoke the next day covered with bites, but when I brought it to the management's attention, it was promptly replaced with a new one and we had help arranging the beds to better suit our needs.

The lounge area in the front needs some maintenance... the chairs are seated beside a dead tree and there is not much privacy. I would recommend the Marine over the Soleil for this reason, until the space is fixed up.

Now for the "exceptional circumstances." Our entire stay we were without either water or electricity... or both. That means no flushing toilets for a family of 4, no shower, no clean clothes or towels etc. This was due to a storm which knocked out power which in turn knocked out the pump, then again the power, then again the pump... The management did make a considerable effort to straighten out the situation, but it seems their hands were tied and they did not have a generator. Luckily being next to the pool, we could use buckets to make due.

We were also caught by surprise when a tropical storm hit. I thought travelling during hurricane season meant that we would be alerted when something came up, but I only learned about it from an email sent by the Canadian government to its citizens and when I asked the manager, she confirmed that it was to hit in 5 hours! Keep your iPhone handy and check the US hurricane centre site.

I would commend the management for their concern about their guests, their attention to detail and the effort. I must say, however, that I was surprised to have been charge 100% of our bill considering our inconveniences and not so much as a free ice cream as compensation.

Rose du Bresil, is a very nice place, however, and I would still recommend it.

Room Tip: Marine over Soleil

What a gorgeous place to stay, an excellent choice for our vacation...The bungalow Azur was extremely cozy, the terrace and private garden excellent for breakfast and dinner outside, kitchen offered all comfort for home-cooking and discovery of exotic fruits and veggies...Last but not least Myry, the so friendly owner, was always there to answer every question and to give good tips...and she also cooks excellent!

Thanks a lot for the warm welcome and for taking so well care of u:-)))
