Going to Marie Galante is like going back to the sixties. Life is relaxed and though the internet exists it is nor all around you. The simple island life is great to relax and except a few mosquitos it is one of the best small islands I know - and it has three rum distilleries..
It should not be difficult to keep up some standards - but which one? We all take our vacations used to our own standards and forget sometimes to lower them to destination level. In case of the Village de Menard that is what one should do: just reset your expectations to the sixties and you will be ok. As a student I was used to crap housing so when the kitchen window fell out I was not surprised; neither that the bathroom window cannot be closed so all insects have free entry, the ventilator does not work, the airco makes noise and when its in the mood some cold air and the surroundings are a building site.. But it's all part of the package - sipping a tea punch in the evening and looking at the birds makes it all good. One tip: avoid the restaurant.. anyone who is trying to serve a foie gras on a tropical island must be out of his mind.
