Perfect romantic getaway nestled b/w the Pitons

Posted Jul 25, 2016
Pros: Location, views, rooms, service and food quality.
Cons: The food prices are high and then throw in the 10% VAT tax and 10% service gratuity on top of that (in line with others). As are the drink prices.
Location: Sulfur Springs, Sugar Beach, Jungle biking, chocolate tours, climbing Gros Piton, zip lines (may be worth shuttling on the other side of the island).
Great location nestled between Gros and Petit Piton. Great meals and excellent staff and service. Across the street from another great restaurant, Boucan at Hotel Chocolate. And a complimentary shuttle close to one of the best beaches on the island, Sugar Beach. Close to the town of Soufriere, but not a great location to visit or hang out, but driving through is fine. They do have a local grocery store though. I will say that we visited Jade Mountain, Anse Chastanet, Stone Field Estate and Sugar Beach Resort and were frankly unimpressed with Jade (i realize their marketing and PR makes you think otherwise, but sharing a resort and amenities with Anse is not that appealing for the price). Sugar Beach is impressive, but rather pricey and a bit stuffy, although worth a dinner by the beach and beach time. Ladera is the best value, experience and romantic getaway. The staff is impressive and will do the right thing no matter what. We would stay at Ladera again regardless of what you read about the bugs, etc. It is part of the romantic experience with views of Petit and Gros that blow your mind and pictures won't even be able to describe how gorgeous it is. The government runs the hikes up Gros Piton, but well worth it. If you are adventurous and in good shape, hire a guide to take you up Petit Piton (find Cameron Vauroque). The start is hard to find and safety should be your top priority with many ropes to get to the top.

Once in a lifetime

Posted Jul 10, 2016
Pros: The views and the food at the hotel 5 stars , Caroline was on top of everything
Location: Suger beach and the drive in Volcano was the highlight of the trip
Ladera has the best views and location for that get away experience the dining was the best anywhere . The staff wend above and beyond to make anything you need happen. The room was clean considering its a 3 wall hotel. this is NOT Vegas and don't expect that if you want nature, views that look like a postcard every day then this is it. a perfect place for a romantic getaway

Amazing!

Wonderful, it was amazing! The views, the concept, the pools were more than you can imagine. The pictures do not do it justice! We will definitely be staying again! Splurge on a heated pool if you can, it is definitely worth it!

Great way to see Saint Lucia from an epic hotel

Posted May 12, 2016
Super nice staff. Great food at the hotel restaurant as well as the restaurant across the street (Hotel Chocolate). Nice ride down to Sugar Beach where the daybeds are a must and you spend the day. This is a must stay once in a lifetime.

Excellent location and easy access to Sugar Beach.

Posted Apr 30, 2016
Beautiful. The views and atmosphere is like being in a treehouse in the jungle with the most spectacular views. The location is great for activities. Gardens and flowers are heavenly Loved the cocoa tea every morning The rooms could be a bit cleaner especially around the vanities and furniture. The rooms are open air but some of the areas look built up over time.
