To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us during their time at Pointe-à-Pitre International Airport.
What to Expect
- A clean and modern international airport with two terminals (Terminals 1 and 2) and a small selection of shops and restaurants.
- The air-conditioning keeps the terminal a bit chilly, so have a sweater or travel blanket handy to stay warm!
- WiFi is available. See WiFi in the airport guide below.
Where to Sleep
- Although no specific sleeping spot was mentioned, reviewers who spent the night in this airport had a safe and uneventful stay. You must notify airport security of your intention to spend the night at the airport, and they will instruct you to sleep on the ground floor. The airport seating is hard and uncomfortable, with armrests, so you’ll be more comfortable sleeping on the floor. Have a sleeping bag or travel mat handy for added comfort!
- For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.
