Most Relaxing Vacation!

Posted Aug 26, 2015
Pros: Great room and view. The food was excellent, especially the Treetop (Treehouse?) restaurant that had a completely different menu each night.
Cons: Food prices were a bit high - could be lower.
Location: Beautiful location - close to Piton mountains. Lots of excursion options, but we stayed at the resort and only left for a half day sailing trip.
I can't say enough nice things about the hotel - wonderful staff, great food, scenic location, and unique rooms on hillside. You could spend the day just relaxing on the beach or engage in in the many included activities - snorkeling right off the beach, kayaking, paddleboarding, or sailing on small sunfish boats. The beach was not crowded and the many restaurants in the resort had plenty of variety. It seemed geared more to couples or families with older children (our 15 year old had loads of fun with all the activities). The only downside was the cost - especially the food, but we plan on returning again - perfect location and amenities.

A truly amazing place!

Posted Aug 24, 2015
Location: The roads on St. Lucia are curvy but in great shape compared too many other islands. The road to the hotel is rough but not out of the question.
We had an amazing trip! We upgraded to the next level up from the rooms and it was completely worth it! The views were amazing and made you not want to leave the room. There is no air conditioning but it was really not very hot at nights (coming from someone who hates to be hot!). If you embrace it as part of the experience it is well worth it. They have ceiling and standing fans in the rooms. We requested a second fan and put them under the mosquito net at night. We didn’t have much of a problem with bugs but they did have insect repellent in the rooms that worked great. When you look at the rooms online they look dated but when you get there you realize it is part of the atmosphere. While they do look that way, they are very nice and well maintained. The bathrooms must have been recently re-done as they were very nice. The beaches were equally amazing with huge chairs and little huts. They were not crowed and you could get a chair right on the beach at any time. There is a marine reserve right off the beach with great snorkeling and the dive shot was awesome. They offer many dives right from the beach. All the dives that we did was either just us of only two other people. There is actually a second beach that you can walk to or take a water taxi (very close by) that has a restaurant and more chairs. This beach was relatively empty the entire time and made you feel like you were truly alone. I would recommend spending at least one day on that beach.

Nice Resort but........

Posted Jul 12, 2015
Pros: Staff - service was great from all levels.
Cons: Room comfort; costs
Location: Great spot with large beach and much in the way of water sports and excursions. Also, a water taxi to take you to nearby town.
On the plus side was the staff. Everyone sincerely went out of their way to make my wife and I feel welcome and comfortable. Any special requests were accommodated promptly and very happily. Also very nice was the beach area - a large area with plenty of very comfortable straw huts and beach chairs. Beach service was great and there was much in the way of water sports and excursions on-premise. From the "buyer beware" perspective, be very careful of the room you book. Only about a quarter of their rooms are air conditioned; the rest are screened rooms which means quite warm and humid during the overnight (though fans are provided), and quite noisy with the sounds of crickets, frogs, birds, etc sounding through day and night. The other unfortunate item is cost. Beyond hotel and meal plan (if you opt for one), the prices of everything are unreasonably high. For example, alcoholic beach drinks are listed as $14 each - bad enough but then a 20% percent charge is added for service and government tax. (This 20% goes atop anything you purchase). The dinner/breakfast meal plan is probably a better idea since the a la carte cost of food is exorbitant. So while we enjoyed our stay in many ways, there was just enough on the down side to make this a "no return" resort for us.

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 Paradise

Posted 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!
