Excellent boutique hotel
Posted Feb 19, 2017
We stayed at Hotel Chocolat for 10 days for a winter Caribbean vacation, and we could not have been more pleased.
The location right outside of Soufriere was great, on the most beautiful part of the island, close to great attractions and a few really good beaches (Sugar Beach -accessible with a hotel shuttle and Anse Chastanet -accessible by car with a good climb and potholes, taxi or boat).
Hotel Chocolat has 14 rooms (individual lodges), which makes it quaint and somewhat private. The view from the infinity pool and restaurant is downright incredible. While you are close to the main road, the hotel is nestled within the lush vegetation of the cocoa plantation, with a few nice hikes to do around. We had no problems with noise from the road, but it is true that the birds can get loud in the early morning. We used earplugs and slept great! For people who always sleep with A/C on, we had no problem sleeping without it since it gets really breezy at night. We had the basic lodge, which was spacious and beautiful. The greatest feature was the private outdoor shower!
Breakfast was amazing and plentiful, with amazing fruits and treats, and specials everyday. The restaurant had a small but delicious menu, although a little expensive (pricing was equivalent to the restaurants around), with cocoa present everywhere!
The staff was very courteous, helpful and friendly. They made our stay there very pleasant, especially Chris from the bar, who gave us great recommendations.
