No improvement in Internet performance, but at least it appears that they''ve given up trying to charge for it. The rest of the experience was pretty much the same, same beautiful beach, good food, attentive staff, etc. The Head of the Village was gone for a few
The last message about dress code was also from me. We were there January 17 - February 2. They still have lousy internet service. On our balcony on Marie Galante (the high priced rooms), could maybe do email. To do anything real, had to go to the bar, and that
