Great local vibe and eco-friendly property
Posted Apr 5, 2017
Staying here made us feel like we were part of St. Lucia. The property was lush and the cottages were private, as a result. I spent more time on our patio than I could remember of any trip I’ve ever taken. I also think this attracts a certain type of person – everyone we met had stories of what they did that day. In my experience, staying at an all-inclusive or “corporate” resort, it seems most people tend to never really leave the property.
What I loved about this place is that it was locally owned. Also, no matter where we went when a local asked where we were staying they seemed to glow or give us approval of our choice. That was a good feeling, too.
The property itself doesn’t feel that big to me but I also felt, at times, like we owned it. So many times it seemed like we were the only ones there. We had some pool time where it was just the two of us. Only in the early afternoon when tour groups were coming through did we see people and even then it wasn’t a nuisance of any kind.
I really liked that the breakfasts were included as we were able to load up and really not need much until dinner. We did do lunch once and the fish sandwich was outstanding. We did dinner once as well but that’s when we tried to get out to other places.
The type of people who stay here seem to be the ones who want to immerse themselves in the local culture.
