Back again from yet another good holiday at 'La Carabasse.'After reading some of the reviews I could possibly give a few tips on getting the best there,as I know the area quite well after going for the last 4 years...1.Shopping;Turn right out of the main parc entrance follow the road over the canal for about half a mile into Vias Town and there's a supermarket that the locals use and everything is less than half the price than on site.If you turn left out of the parc entrance and go up the strip you'll be paying tourist prices,so avoid turning left at all costs...2.Alcohol;Go to the bar on site for happy hour,6;30 till 7;30,if you want more make sure you buy at the supermarket mentioned above and retire back to your mobile and enjoy your drinks there...3.Holiday Period;Avoid July & August if possible,you can't go anywhere quickly,much too busy on foot and by car,and the pool and entertainment area is impossible and extremely noisy.4.Mobile Homes;Save yourself a lot of money by booking directly with the owners.Ask where their mobile is situated on site,owners have the facility to produce a site map by e mail,if it's near the pool,avoid like the plague unless you like noise and people milling about all day.Even the farthest away mobiles on site are no more 5 to 10 minutes from the pool area,and you'll be gauranteed more privacy and less noise.5.Site Map;If a site map can't be produced,be very wary of booking.6.Cheap Deals;You'll get exactly what you've paid for,'Cheap.'I've seen what's on offer with these 'deals',I was caught out myself when I first went there.You can't and won't get the best mobiles on the best plots if you opt for 'cheap deals.'As I said on my previous post,'Although all the mobiles are on the same holiday parc that doesn't mean they're all of the same quality or sited on good plots.'You want either 2* or 5*,exactly the same as booking a hotel.
