In Cap-Haitien stay at Habitation Jouissant. What was once private residence is now a luxury boutique hotel on the hillside with views of the water and the city below. The service is excellent, the meals great and the accommodations high-end. All accommodations have a/c, ceiling fans, free wi-fi, flat screen TV with multiple channels, refrigerator, room service, plus all the amenities one expects from a luxury hotel. There are extra bonuses such as a telescope for better viewing from the balcony. While all the accommodations are wonderful, if available book the Orchidee room which is grand beyond one’s expectations. It offers a separate office and a massive walk-in shower plus drop-dead views from the sleeping area, office and balcony. Upon arrival enjoy your welcome rum punch cocktail at the Lime Bar before dining on the balcony with a panoramic view of the area. During the day relax around their pool or visit the area’s famed sights. Do not miss the nearby Citadel and San Souci Palace both of which will astound you with their size and grandeur.
