Beautiful, Far and AwayPosted Dec 6, 2007
The place is beautiful and the grounds are very well maintained and Ross took great care to make sure that we were taken care of in every respect. He had a driver for us, Linus, who also gave us a tour of various areas of the island. Linus was excellent and so sweet. Ross was very hospitable and recommended alot of places for us to go and suggested a schedule for us if we wanted. I recommend Fond Bay for those who want seclusion, quiet, and a place out of the way of general tourists. It is an hour away from Castries so be sure to fly into the other airport and don't make the same mistake we did. We stayed in St. Lucia for 5 days and it was just enough. Thank You Linus and Ross for showing us a great time.

Off the beaten track...Posted Mar 11, 2007
A beautiful quiet site with a view of the Atlantic. On one side, the view was being lost to a new house, but there was still plenty of ocean view left.. The ocean view rooms shouldn't be affected. The Garden view rooms were not that; they were in the back off an outdoor corridor. The rooms were well furnished with the exception of needed bedside lights. It was quiet and there were a couple of very nice places within walking distance, but other than that, everything was an expedition.

Great for adventurePosted Jun 5, 2006
Quiet little villa overlooking a beautiful bay. Great experience because it is so exotic. The rooms are nice, but do not expect the resort-type service and comfort. Expect friendly service while having virtually the whole place to yourself. Downside is that there is no food served on the premises. Great local food at Fox Grove Inn restaurant

Would Not Return to Fond Bay Suites and VillaPosted May 15, 2006
If you do not mind going on vacation to be micro-managed this is the spot for you. There are a lot of rules (Ex. cannot use sunscreen with the white pool towels as it will leave yellow stains..??? are you to just burn and not use sunscreen?) to abide by; my fiance and I travel often and have been all over the world. We are neat, respectful people but we have never encountered service like we received here. It was fine at first; mananger was informational, never overly friendly but tolerable. Then we had an incident with a towel, yes I said towel. They provide complimentary towels for the pool. My fiance jumped in the pool with his wallet in his pocket. He grabbed his towel to dry it off and the dye rubbed off on the towel. It was unfortunate but we were more concerned with the wallet then the towel. When we approached the property manager about the stained towel; he scolded us and we were made to feel like were the relatives that had over-stayed their welcome. It was a sobering reality check back into the real world. This was only half way through the trip. It was really tense after that and it is so small (5 rooms) that you couldn't go anywhere to have your own space. (By the way, yes were charged for the plain white towel.) It was all very unfortunate and really dampened our trip.

Best BetPosted Jan 8, 2006
I love this hotel very clean, quiet, and comfortable. I love the location and senereny, it not crowed or noisey like most other hotels. The only draw back is there is no phone in the rooms. The best hotel expierence I have had in years.

a great quiet spotPosted Jan 6, 2006
This is a beautiful villa and suites situated in the southeast part of the island. It is spotlessly clean has two nice swimming pools and extremely helpful staff. The staff were especially helpful with ideas of places to go, good restaurants, etc.

Didn't want to leave!Posted Oct 19, 2005
Staying at Fond Bay Villa & Suites was unlike any hotel experience. We had the place to ourselves and felt like we were home. We plan to return as soon as we can.
