When hunger calls or you need to quench your thirst, follow the tranquil pathway towards the lagoon and find the resort's charming Le Campęche restaurant. Its menu features succulent lobster, fresh fish and a variety of Creole-inspired dishes.

We enjoyed a 4 days family break at Cap Est Lagoon. We had a warm welcome and the young intern Victor on the reception desk spoke a good english and was very helpful upon our arrival at the hotel. Our suite was exquisite and perfectly located in this very big resort. I loved having to walk in the open to go for breakfast, to the pool, to the restaurant, to the beach or to the nautical base. Staff was friendly and professional. We were a bit disappointed by the restaurant but the breakfast was perfect. It may be the time of the year but this is a very peaceful and quiet hotel which suited us this time as we wanted to relax in such an atmosphere. The reception staff advised us well for a motor boat trip and we had a fantastic time with a very knowledgeable captain. He did not speak english but I could translate to the non french speaker... He picked us up at the hotel board walk and brought us back there too. That saved us the hassle of driving down to the harbour. Kayaks are available for the guests of the hotel and we were happy to try them. We got invited to a cocktail night where we could meet the general manager. Mr OR , we wanted to have a last chat with you on our last day but had to leave early to the airport. I would have loved to make a few suggestions. Thanks to you and the team for your welcome and a lovely stay.

After sailing in Martinique, we spent our last night at Le Cap Est resort. I really like smaller resorts as you get great attention. We were not disappointed at all. The rooms were spacious and well kept. The resort has 2 restaurants, one more formal and the other a beachside casual restaurant. The staff spoke English (as well as French). and were very friendly and helpful. Le Cap Est is located on the Atlantic side of the island and is remote from towns...which was great.

We were given expert care for every detail of our stay. Our room was spacious, clean, well equipped, and had a lovely ocean view. The service was excellent and questions were always answered in a timely and polite manner. We were the minority of English speaking occupants but were given very considerate care and attention. We send a special thank you to front desk receptionist, Elodie, for especially taking good care of us during our stay.

Martinique is such a beautiful island, it is a shame that it is let down by its hotels. On an island-hopping itinerary, we managed to stay at three different hotels on Martinique. This hotel was the best of the Martinique bunch, but please do not take that as a whole-hearted endorsement. Location: From north to south, east to west, Martinique is a gorgeous place. Le Cap Est’s setting is equally so. The hotel is located a few miles outside of Le Francois, and is basically in a neighborhood of upmarket coastal villas (beyond a banana plantation). From what I saw, there is not much else in the immediate vicinity. If you want to see the sights of Martinique, you will need a car no matter where you stay, because the island is large, and worthy spots are spread all around the island. So, in Martinique you absolutely need a car, and Le Cap Est is no different in this regard. Because the hotel is small, I believe it would feel claustrophobic on an extended stay, unless one had the free ability to take off for some sightseeing. In fact, a few fellow guests told us as much. Room: The rooms are in villas lining a walkway, with ocean view buildings on one side and the garden/pool view buildings on the other. We had a room on the ocean side, but I estimate that the pool-side rooms offer an equally lovely view. Contrary to some reviews, I thought the room generally looked good from a maintenance perspective. Everything worked and was pleasant. The rooms are very spacious, with a separate sitting room, bedroom and large patio. The bed was very comfortable. They bathroom’s Etro toiletries were nice, and while the outdoor shower was good idea, the fact that its floor is concrete (rather than tile) made it feel a bit unclean. Dining and Drinks: We had both lunch by the sea and dinner at the hotel’s restaurant. The seaside lunch place was lovely, and had good food. It was pretty effectively run by a group of interns imported from Europe. The main bar, on the other hand, was strange. It fills up with decidedly un-joyous diners awaiting their table at the restaurant, and is understaffed. Like everywhere else in Martinique, the bartenders can essentially only make drinks on their cocktail list. My request for a vodka martini (and I speak some passable French), was met with a quizzical look. I believe this is one of the most popular cocktails IN THE WORLD, but you can’t get it on Martinique, or at Le Cap Est. The restaurant is good, not great, but fairly priced for the quality inasmuch as this is a resort property. Service was provided by a huge team of frenetic European interns. Beach, Pool & the Lack of Service: As other reviewers have commented, the sea at the beach is very, very shallow. This is not a place to swim in the sea. It is a place to windsurf -- or wade out for a considerable distance before the water reaches one’s waist. There is a considerable amount of seaweed both in the sea, and that accumulates on shore. And yes, the hotel has one poor intern, armed with a pitchfork, engaged in the Sisyphean task of collecting the seaweed in a wheel barrow. The pool was large, and just as lovely as the pictures indicate, albeit absolutely lacking in service of any sort. In fact, both the pool and the beach are completely devoid of readily available towels or service of any sort. Bizarrely, for a hotel that considers itself 5 stars, you need a card to collect towels from the watersports shed, which is located just about as far away from the pool as is possible. So, don’t envision pool or beach loungers lined with crisp white towels waiting for your use. You will have to obtain the hotel’s brown beach towels, and you will have a considerable walk to get them. And, why are there towel cards at all? Does the hotel honestly think any guest that could afford to stay there would want to steal its towels? Do they believe their fresh-faced interns came all the way from Europe just to swipe a crummy beach towel? Strange. Also strange is the complete lack of beverage or food service on the beach or at the pool. The only way you can get a drink (and it gets hot in Martinique) is if you get up and go to the beach side restaurant – which isn’t exactly close to the pool. This hotel has a veritable army of interns working at its restaurants, which are only open a few hours each day. Can’t they get a few to circulate during the day, and actually provide guests beach and pool service? Isn’t the beach and pool why people go to the hotel? Maybe the hotel should buy a tractor and rake (as they do in Mexico, ahem), so that poor pitchfork boy could actually attend to guests rather than collect last night’s seaweed? Value: This place is not cheap. It is priced on par with world-class resorts. For instance, it is roughly twice as expensive as the Sofitel Moorea in French Polynesia which, needless to say, is a bit more removed from France and the world than Martinique. This hotel simply doesn’t provide a world-class experience for its price. The towel situation and lack of pool and beach-side service is simply flabbergasting. It makes one wonder if management has actually been to a real luxury resort. For Le Cap Est’s prices, you can go just about anywhere in the world and be pampered. Not here.
