The food is decent at Camelia, but you'll want to get out and explore. Many of the restaurants in town feature live music on Friday and Saturday nights. We recommend a place called Grillardin Brazil. Karaoke Fridays bring in a surprising amount of talent--seriously. And the menu ranges from Creole to seafood, pizza and BBQ.
Eat 'n Sleep in Martinique :: Camelia and Grillardin Brazil
Our Eat 'n Sleep feature profiles a restaurant in a random city and a hotel nearby. It's kinda like that old show "Dinner and a Movie" but you know, with restaurants and hotels. And better jokes.
The Karibea Hotels Camelia Residence is a resort near the touristy--for good reason--Trios-Ilets village of Martinique. The hotel's best attribute is its proximity to the island country's geographic and cultural sites, and guests can easily watch the immense yachts docking at Fort-de-France bay.
Skip a visit to nearby The Pagerie Museum, the birthplace of Napoleon's first wife, Empress Josephine. Really, it's just an old house with knick knacks on display like every other famous-person-was-born-here monument. Instead, drive or walk a bit farther to the Canne Museum, which celebrates Martinique's sugar cane and rum heritage.
The hotel has 22 rooms, each with air-conditioning and standard amenities, though we hear from one visitor that the WiFi is lousy:
We had been told there was a WiFi in the house, which was not free. Eventually, we managed to pay for it online. Our credit card was debited, but we never got the service. Their hotline -- which was more of a cold line -- never responded.
