Club Orient in 1983 had no hot water and I would fill up a camping solar bag and hang it in the sun for a hot shower. The studio had a hot plate and bar refrigerator.
There was no Wi-Fi, no phones except in the front office and no A/C. The chairs were tri-fold rachet chaises that you had to bring to the beach everyday.
There was no chair rentals or umbrellas.

I have great memories of many of these and in particular Trivia night at Davids in Marigot. A group from Pelican would try to beat the :barflies" I still have 2 winning teeshirts signed by David himself.

La Belle Creole had several buffets. Including breakfast, they had "Treasures of the Caribbean Sea" (Thurs. night, I believe). AYCE langostas & other shellfish, etc.
