  • January 2018 alas after 15 days of housing in the village, on the axis St Catherine, the truth is less rosy than the idea that we can be. The neighborhood is overrun with beggars, of drugs, and various oddballs and at all hours of the day. Each input and output of our housing is a test. He must fight their way between groups of people trying to smuggle drugs. The smell of grass is present at every street corner. An increased presence of police in car does not change much. Is clearly not safe nor enjoyable. That your accommodation is luxurious or not, the fact that it is in the village is a real problem. Night, from 2-3 hours of the morning when bars and strip clubs close, this is place to the street circus with dead drunk and probably drugged, people screaming at every turn. I can't imagine out and entering into our accommodation at these late hours. Beggars are aggressive and often shout on passers-by. I think that few people talking about it unfortunately. We wanted to read this type of comment before our trip, so don't make the wrong choice. Prefer the West Island to stay, or the old port which is great. In winter, the village, absolutely not worth the detour. There is nothing if not of incivility. Stay away.
