My wife and I have visited Guadalope three times- initially for part of a day during a southern Carribean cruise - that prompted us to go back for an 8 day visit to Ste. Anne and most recently we spent 11 great days on the island of Marie Galante. We prefer apartment type accomodations that allows us to make our own breakfasts and other meals or tapas, if and when we feel like it. After some internet research and email enquiries to operators of vacation accomodations that looked interesting, we chose to book apartment F2 at le soleil levant sur les hautes des Capesterre. When we arrived in Marie Galant, we were delighted to find our choice of accomodations was great - well equipped - clean - everything worked - very spacious - a deck off the bedroom that overlooked the ocaen- air conditioning in the bedroom - reasonably priced.-two swimming pools on site etc. On the slightly negative side the four piece bathroom was not quite up to North American standards (ie flushing the toilet required several attempts if there were "floaters" to get rid of and climbing in and out of the bathroom was a bit awkward) however we viewed this as a difference rather than an irritation).
The million dollar view at this property does come with a price - is is located on a hill overlooking the town of Capesterre, so if you decide to walk to the downtown (less than 10 minutes) you need to climb up the hill to get "home".
Overall I would give Le Soleil Levant, sur les hauteurs des Capesterre at least a 7.5 on on scale of 1-10. It is definitely a place we would return to ! Marie Galant is a beautiful island with great beaches, great rum punch, good food and a few interesting places to visit. It has a tranquil atmosphere. For active people that are continually on the go a two day visit to this island would be long enough. On the other hand if you want to relax, read books, lay on the beach etc and generally enjoy the Carribean with a French/European atmosphere but without the high pressure sales hype you encounter on some of the other islands, then I recommend a couple of weeks on Marie Galante.,
Marie Galante has quite a few accomodation options and I expect quite a few of them are very good, but based on our experience we suggest that if you plan to visit Marie Galante, you check out le soleil levant.
