Very nice Hotel in a beautifull surrending.Posted Aug 18, 2015
Pros: The unspoiled nature and beautifull cottages along the plantation.
Cons: i cant think of anything
Location: The location was perfect for the purpose of our trip. We liked the nature and went to the sulphur bath twice.We visited the waterfall.
We were very pleased with this nice and neat hotel.The staff was very friendly. We had a nice room. Although it was a good climb to our room we enjoyed the trip.The reception girls where very helpfull.The food was good and we liked the breakfast.We would recommend this hotel especially if you are going on a honeymoon to book this hotel in St.Lucia. We stayed only 3 nights but are planning to return next year for a whole week.Thanks to the staff for being so nice and helpfull.

Calm and peacefulPosted Jul 15, 2015
One of the most beautiful places we have ever stayed in. Sleeping alongside the sounds of nature. Outdoor shower was refreshing. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. Great place for nature lovers wanting to get away from the tourist areas.

Exceptional service and amazing locationPosted Jun 17, 2015
A very authentic experience of St Lucia. The hotel is very comfortable with breathtaking views. The beach is average but if you want to enjoy the beautiful scenary and love nature, you will be not be dissapointed. The staff are so friendly and are happy to accomodate for your needs. We loved this hotel.

Our favorite stay at Saint Lucia!Posted Jun 2, 2015
Pros: The grounds are beautiful and large. Lots of places to enjoy. The included continental breakfast was great too!
Cons: If each room had a floor fan, we'd be much more comfortable. We had to remove the cheap, ineffective bug nets just to feel our ceiling fan at night.
Location: Many things: Tet Paul trail, Sulfur Springs, Volcano, Plantation, Ladera, Soufriere, Botanical Gardens, Hotel Chocolate
This place is lovely. Despite a couple drawbacks, this was our favorite (more than Ladera even). This place has charm and an amazing pool and deck which we enjoyed relaxing on. Also, incredible internet, which made it easy for me to do some computer work when near the pool. It's home to many friendly lizards and a cat named socks who's your best friend during dinner. One thing to note: outdoor shower and cottages don't keep bugs/creatures out. If you're likely to be uncomfortable or startled, this may be a deal-breaker for you. I didn't like hearing lizards running across the roof at night.

Good accommodation and grounds - poor foodPosted Jun 1, 2015
The grounds are great, and would recommend taking the tour to get some information on the plantation - Phillip was a great guide. There is a nature trail that takes you up to a Piton view that has only just finished being built also. Rooms are nice and as described. Food at the restraunt was poor, and would recommend eating at other resorts.

Great ExperiencePosted May 14, 2015
This was one of my favorite stays. We had the 2 bd and 2 bath cottage called Avocado. There was no TV and no ACs, but that’s what made it so great. We loved this hotel. My fiancé and I had an amazing time just listening to nature and being away from the everyday rush. Food was amazing. Highly recommend!!!! I wish i brought Mosquito spray- Lots of those.

Lush surroundings and beautifully rustic lodgingPosted Apr 16, 2015
This is the place to stay if you want to get away from the busy, artificial, all-inclusive resort scene, and stay comfortably in your own cabin in a beautiful natural setting, but with resort amenities like room service, on site restaurants, pools, etc. Fond Doux is locally owned and operated, and built in a jungle rainforest. It has kind of a backpacker vibe as it seems to attract friendly, socially conscious people and families, but it is just as easy to nestle into your cabin and keep to yourself, as each one is secluded among the cocoa, cinnamon, banana, guava, papaya, coconut, and palm trees

Beautiful cottages in rsinforedtPosted Apr 15, 2015
Loved the experience of staying in a beautiful cottage in a stunning setting with all the amenities we needed. Shared pool was basically our private pool.

Lovely peaceful retreatPosted Apr 15, 2015
Can highly recommend staying at fond doux. Whist it may not be beachside or offer all resort style facilities, it is a tremendously welcoming independent family run business in the heart of the rainforest but close to the sea and other soufriere attractions. The staff are all first class from the owners to the estate workers all of which made the stay thoroughly memorable and good value for the area.
