We've been coming to the Martinique for years as a family and have always had the perfect vacation. After 10 years the houses are showing quite a bit of wear. Ciel Sur Terre's kitchen is no longer functional, with the stove having 2 burners at best and no pots & pans or serving dishes to speak of. Lots of plastic cups though. The sheets are old and worn and the blue bedroom mattress is sagging in the middle, my sister moved to the couch to sleep. I'm guessing it had not been rented in awhile because the floors were dirty and little critters had taken up residence in the corners.
My other sister had My Michelle and that is still in very nice shape. My brother was in Hemingway and it too was in perfect shape.
Thank goodness we had the other homes to rely upon to cook meals but it caused the burden to be on those families to entertain every evening.
If we come back we sill send my brother over to inspect all the homes reserved first because the quality and cleanliness seems to be hit or miss.
