Racoon Lodge in Pointe-à-Pitre provides adults only accommodations with an outdoor swimming pool, a shared lounge and a garden. There's a grill and guests can use free WiFi and free private parking. We loved the decor, and the hostess was very informative and knowledgeable about the area. She also speaks both French and English. This place was quite close to the airport, and we had an early flight.

GREG HOUSE is located in Pointe-à-Pitre. The apartment has sea views and is 22 miles from Saint-François. We absolutely loved it and everything was perfect! The apartment was very clean, well equipped (including bottles of water, shampoo, laundry detergent, some basic groceries, etc.), it is great located near to the city and the harbour. Greg was an outstanding host, always very friendly and helpful and responded very quick! All in all, we highly recommend a stay at Greg house and would definitely come again.
We loved the atmosphere, friendly people and good food. We saw interesting architecture, visited a great museum (Memorial Acte) and best of all, everyone we met was very friendly and happy to talk to us (in French).
The area closes down tight very early, nothing much around to do or eat, especially if your flight arrives in the evening. Gosier is a much more bustling location. The Slave Museum was very well worth while.
Markets are colorful, museums are falling down and closed, hard to get good meal without reservations. A very rundown town. Roads out of town have been improved, but in town they have not. Sadly disappointing town. Probably best visited by private yacht. We had hoped to hear/see music in town, but found it only behind a fence for a cruise ship.
I spent only a few hours as this was two overnights and saw very little. The Saturday morning market was attractive with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. I also enjoyed some fresh pastry from a pastry shop. Since it was the weekend there was not much time to do shopping as the stores closed early on Saturday and does not open on Sunday. I went to mass on Sunday morning in the nearby chapel and it was very nostalgic as the service took me bake to my early childhood.
Things are expensive and the town looked worn out and dirty... Seemed pretty safe though.. People were nice but not so easy on the eyestaxis are expensive I walked around the town... And not many great food options in town.
The ActE Memorial museum is the only reason to spend time in PTP, in my opinion. (This museum on the history of slavery is world-class). The city itself is a big, dirty, ugly modern city for the most part.
I loved this place and was only sorry it was just for one night. It's a high bright spacious comfortable apartment (the beds are on an upper level) right next to Place de la Victoire with its restaurants cafes and markets. It's very central so perfect for visiting Pointe-a-Pitre. William my host greeted me at the Airport and arranged a transfer to the apartment. He is friendly and helpful and never far, everything you want from a host. Recommended!...
