Martinique, a department of France in the Caribbean, is home to a pair of all-inclusive resorts: Club Med Buccaneer's Creek and Club Trois Ilets. If you're new to the French Caribbean or feel a bit daunted by the language barrier, Club Med is a good choice for your first visit. Club Trois Ilets offers a more low-key, European-style holiday vacation.

This 77-room, all-inclusive Martinique beachfront resort located near the island's main city of Fort-de-France appeals primarily to Francophones. Packages include all meals, drinks, activities (primarily water sports), live entertainment and a kids' club.
Be sure to try the Creole dishes at the onsite restaurant. If you're looking for more culinary variety than what's offered available here, check out the nearby restaurants.
Club Trois Ilets is convenient to the airport and the island's top attractions, but you may just want to spend much of your time relaxing poolside. If you do feel like getting out, nearby activities include golfing, casino gambling and picnicking at Anse-a- l'Ane beach.
In-room amenities include coffee maker, safe, television, telephone, air conditioning, balcony, hair dryer, and refrigerator.
