Resort on the beach.Posted May 31, 2015
Pros: Very peaceful.
Cons: The road- I drove a rental car.
Location: We were not interested in going to town. Locals in town are very pushy and tried to enter my vehicle several times. I had to throw one person out.
We had no idea there were that many stairs and got tired of tipping the shuttle drivers. We liked the location and the place. Snorkeling was great and available activities were very good. Food was excellent no matter where we ate inside the resort. The chocolate 65% with Cinnamon was fabulous. Would like to buy more of this.

Honeymoon in ParadisePosted Apr 23, 2015
It was an hour drive from the airport; but when you arrive you know it is paradise! All you can see are the breathtaking views! The Pitons and the Caribbean. Everything is open air and I can feel why...the beautiful breezes. The food is excellent. Our room had magnificent views everywhere. (No Windows) The beach you never want to leave with Tiki umbrellas over your lounge chairs. Drinks and food are served right to your lounge chair. Snorkeling is right on the beach; no boat needed. The fish are beautiful. Since the rooms are built into a mountain, the steps are allot of work. You can take there shuttle. All I can finish with if you are looking for Paradise this is it!

Secluded beautyPosted Apr 7, 2015
A beautiful unique and secluded hotel built to make the most of a breathtaking view and natural setting There is no pool no wifi no TV. Be prepared to walk a number of steps. These were all PLUSES for us ! The beach is lovely will peaceful cabanas and good service. The food was very good. Service was island-slow but mostly friendly We rented a car which is not for the faint of heart ! The drive in is 2km Mountainous dirt road. We NEVER attempted it at night. Can't wait to go back!

Heaven on EarthPosted Apr 2, 2015
Pros: Proactive staff, dreamy location, glittery sand, numerous activities options, best coral reef location, sunset cruise, scuba course
Cons: Read numerous reviews and only noticed these themes; bumpy road, hillside walk up and lack of AC. For us these were actually pros.
Location: Best coral reef in the island, two dreamy sandy beaches better than the Sugar Beach which is mostly shadowed by the Pitons, morning yoga on the beach
Let me start by saying my fiancee and I originally come from Greece with the thousand islands and the amazing cliffside resorts. This particular island and this specific resort exceeded every expectation and met any previous standard we had in mind. The staff already knew I intended to propose to my girlfriend and they made the experience as unique as could ever be. They welcomed us with the resort's signature cocktail and they were so kind to upgrade us to a hillside suite. We entered the suite and we were stunned. Think how you would expect paradise to look and feel like. Huge open space, sleep in nature type of experience, loveseat overlooking the plantations and the Caribbean sea. To our surprise there was even a huge old tree in our bathroom, which means we were literary sleeping and waking up with birds and frogs. Now picture birds flying in the room while gazing on the beautiful landscape with music on the background. The place sells its self and exhibits the island's beauties in your plate. What I would advise you to do is signing for the All Inclusive package and treat yourself to the max as every bite of local food and every zip of cocktail drink will remain as a memory for years. We only checked out from this room to move to the sister resort (Jade Mountain) for the big day. Frankly, Anse is a unique experience which combines the local creole culture with an unbeatable luxury. If you ever decide to visit St. Lucia, Anse and JM are the only places to consider.

Delightful breakPosted Mar 30, 2015 on Hotels
We visited Anse Chastanet on our honeymoon. We really enjoyed our stay. The staff were fantastic, and always keen to please. The service was friendly and prompt, and the food was very good. Some reviewers had complained of the road to the hotel. We had a small hire car, and although the road is steep in places, and pot-holed, it was nowhere near as bad as we were expecting. It could do with some repair, but it is easily passable The hotel is built into the side of a hill, which means there is a lot of up and down. However, we enjoyed this aspect. Although we never used it, there is a shuttle to and from the beach, which means you never have to climb if you don't want to. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel, and we are already looking forward to our next visit.

Great stay on St LuciaPosted Mar 29, 2015 on Hotels
Beautiful beaches, with nice service, decent food, friendly and helpful staff. Open to air suites. No ac but fans and breezes. Rm 7E has views as good as any postcard. It's the islands so slow down and don't expect fast service. Steep hills and steps but use the shuttles on demand. Very easy.

Funky (but in a good way)!Posted Mar 18, 2015
Pros: Location, views, food, service, beach - it's a black sand beach. We heard that some travelers thought was beach was dirty. It is not dirty!
Cons: There are no phones in the rooms (fine) but there should be some way to contact the front desk.
This is an off the beaten track experience and a "no small children allowed" hotel - refreshing! The rooms are built into a mountain and some have large balconies commanding views of the Pitons and the ocean (our room was such). There are many stairs to get to the black sand beaches below but it adds to the charm. The food was quite excellent, many of the ingredients being grown at the hotel's farm. Lots of seafood, fresh fresh fresh. If you are expecting or wanting a Four Seasons experience then this is NOT the place for you. If you are a seasoned traveler then this IS the place for you.

Absolutely AMAZING and MAGICAL!!Posted Mar 13, 2015
Pros: I loved how remote it was, you are completely surrounded by mother nature. it also has its own beach which is great for snorkeling.
Cons: food could be improved - especially at the Tree House and lunch at beach restaurant. The best food was dinner at Indian restaurant.
Location: climb the Pitons,mountain bike, and check out Sugar Beach where the Viceroy Hotel is. go to the Ladera Hotel for drinks - amazing view of the Pitons
This hotel is truely uniquie and beautiful! The rooms are embedded into the mountain, and you feel so remote. Its a great get away from reality and people, your in your own little world. You feel like you are in the middle of a tropical rain forest surrounded by trees, plants, flowers, humming birds, frogs and all different types of animals. The rooms are spacious and open where you can hear the animals and the ocean outside. The hotel staff were very friendly, the rooms were always clean and the beach was great! Snorkeling right outside the hotel was excellent. The food was average and the lunch menus could have had more options, but your in another country so I can't expect to get the same food quality as NYC has to offer. The best restaurant for dinner was the Indian restaurant on the beach. The Treehouse restaurant was ok. We ate at the Jade Mountain restaurant for dinner and it was ok for the price. But you should definitely eat breakfast at Jade Mountain - its much better than the breakfast at treehouse and its the same price! This was my favorite island, its blows Aruba, PR, and dominican republic away. There is so much to do in St. Lucia, and you should definitely climb the Pitons if you are active and fit. Anyone that complained about the road to get to the hotel or all of the steps you have to walk - they are not adventurous and clearly are just complainers. There is nothing to complain about - this place is amazing and worth every penny! it was MAGICAL
