“Great villa for experiencing the true St. Lucia”
This was our first trip to St. Lucia and we wanted to make sure that we stayed in a nice place but be near the local people to get a true feel of the island. Our wish surely came true. This is not a hoity-toity hotel that caters to the tourist that wants to stay onsite and get every need met. This place is nice, clean, very friendly with helpful staff. The beach is right there. The locals do swim with you but do not bother you. Petite Piton is right in front of you and all of the natural sites are in Soufriere. Many people come down from the Northern hotels and cruise ships for day excursions to this town. We went snorkeling, hiking, saw diamond falls, went to the Sulphur Springs, had a private tour on David's family's plantation, toured the entire island, and went swimming every day. We did not rent a car. Trevor picked us up and dropped us off at the airport and drove us around the island, Thomas was a great guide that took care of us everyday doing close-by excursions, we took a water taxi to go snorkeling. Talk to David about your plans and he will connect you with good people that will ensure you have a great experience without a huge cost. Breakfast was included every morning. We had a good breakfast with fresh fruit, great coffee and a smiling Kendra. Would definitely go back to the island and stay at the Still Beach House.
“Quiet, off the beaten path, B&B type”
The Still beach house was a great place to stay if you like a quiet relaxing atmosphere. There are only five rooms, so it feels more like a B&B then a hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Eating dinner and breakfast is very nice....quiet, great view, and feels like a home-cooked meal because most of the time you are the only one in the restaurant. The only warnings I would give is that you must remember that you are in the city of Soufriere, not an an all-inclusive resort with your own private beach. The beach in front of the hotel is nice but is a public beach that all the locals go to. It is very busy with locals, especially on the weekends, and there a multiple "hucksters" lingering around. My advice would be to enjoy the tranquil complimentary breakfast and then take a water taxi to another beach (Jalousie, Anse Chastenat, etc) to soak up the sun.
“Still Beach Hotel”
The view was amazing! The staff there was also wonderful and friendly - and also, I was able to sit and watch quite a few hummingbirds out my window.
“Liked it but it's not a resort.”
If you are looking for a place to sleep well, the Still Beach House is good. It's quiet and there is a/c in the bedroom. The view from the veranda is great. You should be prepared to rent a car or take a taxi to get to restaurants. You can't walk to much within a reasonable distance except for the grocery store and a few small restaurants in the town. The hotel's restuarant is fine and the prices are very resonable. The free breakfast, however, is the same each morning: pancakes and a choice of eggs, bacon, or ham. The beach doesn't have any lounge chairs so you are on your own unless you like laying on a towel. The locals on the beach are nice and lots of small kids play there after school. Lastly, if your mobile phone isn't working you'll need to ask the staff to borrow the hotel phone, which then does't dial to mobile phone numbers to call a taxi. This place is much cheaper than a resort but you get what you pay for.
“Nice for a few nights ...”
Excellent view of the Pitons and the Soufriere Bay. Nice large bed with full mosquito net. In-room safe solid! Owner attentive and helpful. Good breakfast, if available. Beach is okay but just for a short swim; too many locals ... most are very nice. The road to Anse Chastanet is right out the back door.
“Nice and clean friendly staff”
This is a small hotel with great view from the rooms outside porch For the price a nice place to stay. If you are looking for a white sand beach and big hotels luxuries this is not it for you. You may be the only one having breakfast or dinner in a large eating area and the food is adequate. The owners bend over backwards and are very nice. This is more like a bed and breakfast than a resort as we might think of in the US
“WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY”
I wish I wouldve spent my money elsewhere!! Upon arrival, i was looking for a reception desk, but the manager just let me in w/o ID and gave me the keys to my room. The reception desk is a small desk in the dining area. Security is only one person, that let anyone in the "resort." There are 5 rooms of the "resort" and there were two rooms occupied. When I asked her to cater to me, there was a HUGE attitude. Lmtd options in complimentary breakfast: toast with eggsor pancakes. 2nd day of room, there was no indoor plumbing. We had to manually put LMTD water from shower and transfer it in inside of the toilet tank. Cab ride to the "resort" was $75. The beach at the "resort" horrible. Sand had many rocks and not white sand. They let anyone stay on their property. Too many children harrassing me asking me for my phone and chain as remembrance. Natives trying to take money from me. Souvenirs EXPENSIVE ($17US Dollars for a mug).... BASICALLY, THIS IS ONE EXPENSIVE ISLAND. If u want to party, in which what we were trying to do, stay at the resorts in the NORTH. We stayed in the WEST.
