Good, but upgrade with wifi in rooms.

Wifi in reception area only is not what you expect of a hotel and can easily be upscaled. Otherwise a nice experience.

5/5 Excellent

Hippo’s on the lawn.

Best position in St Lucia. Saw Hippo’s on hotel grounds twice. Gardens and pool area make this one of the best options for a short stay. The rooms, although not huge, were serviced and kept neat and clean. Restaurant food compared with the best you will find in town. Portions were generous, and the service better than expected. Overall good value. Breakfast choices would satisfy most travelers. Wi-fi was slow, but adequate. We stayed in self- catering apartments in St Lucia previously, but this is without a doubt the best option for short stop-over. The highlight of our stay was seeing the hippo up close, grazing right next to the hotel pool.
