Very much enjoyed.Posted Feb 8, 2016
Pros: See above.
Cons: The staff are generally very friendly but just occasionally, and only a minority, slightly off-hand. Perhaps a little bit of staff training.
Location: Great location; 45 minutes from Vieux Fort airport. Climb Gros Piton, walk the rainforest trail, get out on to the sea at least once.
We spent a lovely week at Ladera. The room (with plunge pool and terrace) was fantastic, set off by the stunning view and the one-open-wall construction. The food at Dasheene was uniformly excellent and twinned with a terrific wine list. The hotel also boasts a very congenial bar with little bands most nights adding to the chilled atmosphere. We would definitely recommend Ladera.

The view and landscaping were both spectacular.Posted Jan 17, 2016
Pros: The view and landscaping.
Location: The location was wonderful. We were able to got to the beach, take walks, boat rides, etc. The absence of more restaurants was a disappointment.
We had a wonderful time. The staff was very attentive, the room was lovely, the grounds inviting.

Absolutely LovelyPosted Jan 17, 2016
Pros: Location, food, charm
Cons: hmm, I can't think of anything! Its expensive but hey, when you get a scenery like that you gotta pay for it! exotic islands are not cheap.
Location: I wrote that above in the earlier passage :)
We had them most beautiful experience! Def need to be an outdoors lover as this hotel is completely open concept-meaning you are right there in the beautiful outdoors. We really enjoyed this experience and are nature and animal lovers. I love that it is very quiet and no TV or NOISE, extremely peaceful. I read books and swam in my plunge pool, took naps, went to the beach, and enjoyed touring the island. Very convenient to the downtown area and to the worlds largest drive in volcano, as well as the botanical gardens and the 3 different waterfalls. The Dasheen restaurant on the propery was lovely, fresh fruit juices every morning and delicious cocoa tea that is unique to the island. We stayed 5 nights which was perfect for us.

Posted Dec 27, 2015
Pros: Visual setting, customer service.
Cons: A little pricey in the restaurant.
Location: Other than a resort across the street, Ladera is somewhat isolated. You need a cab to go anywhere, including the nearest town. Not a friendly locati
This was a unique and memorable experience. Visually stunning, top notch and attentive customer service. We're glad we stayed at Ladera, but it's not for everyone. Some people paying top dollar have an expectation of 100% comfortable & luxurious accommodations. Those people would be disappointed, particularly at night. Not everyone would be thrilled with ensuring that the protective netting completely surrounds their bed, nor navigating steps with a flashlight at night (or putting on lights and inviting all sorts of flying insects into the room). I liken this experience to a hybrid between a luxurious resort and camping. If you go in with a realistic set of expectations, you'll have a wonderful and unforgettable experience. However, it's not for everyone.

Hôtel très tranquille!Posted Dec 16, 2015
Pros: Mon coup de coeur ma chambre, j'avais une chambre vue sur les pitons, bassin d'eau dans la chambre, incroyable!
Cons: Ajouter des navettes pour la plage, 3 departs par jour insuffisant et revoir forfait avec petit dejeuner, desagreable de manger toujours la meme chose
Location: Nous avons passé une apres midi sur une plage vierge seule! Ont doit y etre depose en bateau a 15 min de l'hotel. vacance pour couple seulement!
Pour ceux qui ont besoin de se retrouver dans un environnement paisible, je suggere fortement. Par contre 8 nuits dans mon c'est trop long puisqu'il n'y a rien a faire a part se reposer.. Je suggere un maximum de 5 nuits. Je deconseille le spa très dispendieux pour les soins et environnement du spa. Le reste etait parfait, groupe de musique a tout les soirs, reggae, saxophone wow! Chambre magnifique, le reveil avec les oiseaux sur notre lit et sur les tables de chevets, pour moi c'etait le paradis. Pour reussir a trouver le someil bon bouchon requis car les criquets font beaucoup de bruits et les chambres sont a air ouvert sur la mer.
