September Honeymoon

Posted Oct 5, 2017
Pros: Website
Cons: na
Ladera was exactly what my wife and I expected. We stayed there for three nights during the last week of September. We booked a regular room, however, once we got there we were instantly upgraded to the 'Hilltop Suite' without even asking! The staff is amazing, helpful, informative, and exceeded our expectations. The views of the Pitons are one of a kind! The room was spacious, clean, and exactly advertised. The only concern we had was dining. Dasheen is the only restaurant in the resort and it can be pricey. Other than that, do not blink twice and book your trip!

We had such a great time. We felt like we were on paradise. The view from our room was amazing. The staff was so friendly and helpful. Always asking if we needed anything and always greeting us with a smile and a great attitude. The food was so fresh and delicious it was just unreal!! We are definitely going back!!! Thank you so much for the great experience! The Gomes family

The ultimate relaxation destination

Posted Aug 29, 2017
Pros: Staff, views, pool, service, spa, all-inclusive package, personal cell phone, and live music at dinner
Cons: Our room fan was not powerful at night so it did get quite hot.
Location: Location was the best view on the entire island, Diamond Falls, Botanical Gardens, sulfur mud baths, sunset cruise, snuba diving.
Me and my husband stayed at Ladera Resort for 7 nights for our honeymoon in August. IT BLEW OUR EXPECTATIONS AWAY. The staff is unmatchable; the most accommodating, considerate, and kindest people you will ever meet. Because the resort is so small, they all get to you know by name. So by the time we left, we made great friends with so many. We had the cheapest room you could get and it was still amazing. The view was breathtaking and the place was spotless every day (they clean it twice a day for you). We spent most days enjoying our all inclusive package getting food and drinks by their beautiful pool. Definitely invest in the all inclusive package, it will save you LOADS of money because the resort prices are quite steep. Also keep in mind that because the room is open, you will have critters in your room. We had (harmless) gnats, moths, and lizards that would visit frequently. so consider that if you are easily squeamish. We also rented a car and did our own traveling like 4 times during the week. We went to the Diamond Falls, Toraille Falls, Snuba diving, Sulfur mud baths (smelly!), and Sunset cruise. Off the resort is a little sketchy, and Sugar beach isn't all it's made out to be if you don't pay the $50 beach chair fee. Ladera has a wonderful restaurant that has new menu items everyday, and live music at dinner. If you are looking for a relaxing, unique, laid back vacation with super kind people and the best view on the island (seriously), this is the place for you.

Incredible location, experience, and views!

Posted Aug 23, 2017
Pros: Views, location, room experience, staff attention.
Cons: Food quality/cost balance at hotel.
Location: Tons of excursions - snorkeling, boat trips, sulfur baths, rainforest trails, etc.
Ladera is an incredible experience - the views and location are unique, with the staff being as accommodating and friendly as imaginable. The open suite format is a wonderful experience (but be aware that it does rain and get very hot and humid - there is also, being open format, a significant experience with insects). The services at the hotel and excursions are not to be missed. Dasheen is a solid restaurant and the local tastes are the way to go, but prices are clearly resort-based; you're paying NYC prices for only solid food. Better food options are Boucon at Hotel Chocolat and down at Sugar Beach.

Dear Adam, Thank you for your detailed feedback on your stay with us! We strive to provide excellent service to all our guests. Summer Days tend to be a bit hotter than months like December to April. We try our best to take precautionary measures against insects by spraying around the resort and also providing in-room repellent in all Suites. Unfortunately, with the open concept like you mentioned, this will sometimes occur. We appreciate your comments and hope to welcome you again!

4 Star Hotel, 5 Star Experience

Posted Aug 3, 2017
Pros: Staff was 5 stars, restaurant staff was about 3.5 stars.
Cons: Restaurant staff, pricing on specific dishes was WAY off, but on par with most other locations on the island.
Location: Sugar Beach, Zip Lining, Gardens, Hiking.
Views are out of this world, staff is top notch as well. Food/drink are on par with much of the island, although some dishes here are a bit excessively priced (e.g. sauteed shrimp on a bed of kale was $36 for 10 normal shrimp). Rooms are in excellent condition, pools with the view are killer. There is a pool in the main area (only saw a couple of people using it each day due to having your own pool). Rooms also have retractable roof covers for pools in case of rain, fun to watch the rain IN the pool!
