Our hotel was in Vieux Port the marina area which is a good base to see most points on interest on foot. There are a lot of good restaurants in the area which line the marina and in the various backstreets close by. Most restaurants do an all inclusive meal for a special price. This includes a starter, main course, sweet and coffee for an inclusive price of between 15 and 18 euros.

This a friendly city but full of many undesirable people so keep your wits about you. We did until the last day when we paid the penalty and was robbed by 2 snatch and run thiefs who ran faster than me and in different directions.
On the final day we took a taxi to the port which took about twenty minutes and cost €25. Here we were efficiently boarded onto the ship the Orient Queen.
