Review: Air France Lounge, Terminal 2F Gate 30, Paris (CDG)

Trip to Dominica and the French West Indies

A few weeks ago, Mike and I were on a trip again and this time, we explored three small islands in the Caribbean. First, we flew from Paris to Fort de France in Martinique where we stayed for two nights. From there, we took the ferry from Saint-Pierre to Roseau, Dominica where we were hosted by our travel partner in their lovely lodge for five nights. From Roseau, we took the ferry to Pointe-à-Pitre, Guadeloupe and stayed there for three nights before flying back to Paris. Both Martinique and Guadeloupe are overseas regions of France so it was like traveling within Europe as no passport control was required. Obviously, they speak French although English was also spoken in restaurants and hotels. In Dominica, we met Norun, owner of the beautiful Hibiscus Valley Inn. While there, we did different tours including a visit to the Cabrits National Park and Kalinago Center among others, and did one of the coolest water activities I've known, river tubing 😊 We definitely had fun during this trip and hopefully we would be back again to explore more of the Caribbean islands in the future 😉

CONCLUSION

This lounge is pretty much like the Air France Lounge located in F50 with same design and same food and drinks selection. I loved the fact that they have power outlets in almost every seat except in the dining area. The food selection was great and the fact that a staff roams around the lounge around 5:30pm serving glasses of champagne is a big plus 👍 Wifi connection was fast and you can use either the one from the lounge or from the airport. Lastly, I loved that they have L'Occitane toiletries in the shower rooms since not many business class lounges offer this brand, if they offer any branded toiletries at all. Only complain is that there was no toilet in the shower room. Overall, this lounge is a very nice lounge and big pluses to the champagne serving in the afternoon and L'Occitane toiletries 😉
