Le Rayon Vert was a perfect spot for our vacances du fin d’année (end of year vacation). We were there Dec 28- Jan 1. Pauline at desk was always helpful-showing us our room, getting us a taxi to return to airport, helping us understand our surroundings with our limited French. I don’t think she took a break—there every day and meeting our every need. This is a family owned place and you can feel it. It is quiet, peaceful, the food is great (we got breakfast included, which was a great move). The infinity pool is lovely and sunbathing beside the pool provided us with every direction of sun overlooking the ocean. A few things to note: 1) don’t even bother taking a laptop to work. WiFi is only in pool/restaurant common areas and not the best signal. And within a day or two, I clearly recognized this is NOT the place to go to catch up. It’s a place to wind down. 2) The local beach is Plage Leroux and it is beautiful. Getting there is a 10 minute walk through a poor island small town. If you are intimidated in such areas, a car would be a good way to go but parking at the beach is limited. 3) Food at the hotel is terrific but they don’t serve lunch Monday or Tuesday and choices to eat within walking distance are either not good or also not open those days. 4) BEST advice—rent a car. We paid 80-90€ each way to/from airport and walked (5km) to the nearest big town of Deshaies which was a lovely walk but dangerous in some spots where road was windy and dark.
