Personal Considerations

When you <span>plan your trip to Martinique</span>, a number of details go into deciding on the best location for your accommodations.

Party Size

As a general rule, the larger your party, the more you'll have to research your lodgings. Sure, you can book several cheap hotel rooms to accommodate your brood, but if you take the time, you may be able to find a hotel that specializes in suites, or a rental house that is large enough to fit everyone comfortable, for a similar price. Many of these types of locations even have extras that make it more affordable, such as a kitchen where you can cook your own meals instead of dining out.

The type of group you travel with makes a difference, also. Hotels that go out of their way to accommodate families like Diamont Beach will obviously be a top choice if you have young children, while groups of a adults looking for a wild getaway may want to look for a locale that discourages children from staying on property. Couples planning a romantic weekend can choose couples only resorts, or find a quaint inn known for its intimate ambiance.

Interests

Choosing a hotel near the attractions you want to visit, or a beach that you know you'll be spending a lot of time at is ideal. Many hotels on Martinique also specialize in certain activities, like golf, fishing, or diving, and could end up saving you money when you purchase a package deal that includes these activities in the price.

Length of Stay

If you are planning to stay on Martinique for more than a week, the excitement of being on a vacation might not last as long as someone only on the island for a weekend. This is when choosing accommodations that will make you feel at home will come in handy. A rental property will offer you all the comforts of home, and probably save you money, than if you were to pay full price for a resort for each night of your stay. On the other hand, for a quick trip, you'll probably want to be pampered, and have as much taken care of for you as possible, so you can make each moment count. These vacationers will definitely want to stick to a hotel or large resort for their trip.
