How French it is! - Nov 2015


I wish I would have known that no one speaks English. I also wish I would've known how gross and nasty the public beaches are. I thought we were going to come here and be next to beautiful beaches but that wasn't the case. In the summer the beaches are like a candy bar with ants crawling all over them. Movenpick saved us here. I wish I would've known how people stare here, this was a big culture shock for me. The way people always stared really took a toll. I wish I would have done more research or even paid a visit before committing to come here. here is NOTHING to do here so you and your spouse if you have one will be spending LOTS of time together!!

There are some women who drive here but most don't. - Nov 2014
