Don't do it.
Posted Oct 2, 2014
My boyfriend and I arrived in St Lucia and at the Riverside House (which is VERY hard to find and unless you get a local who will show you the way and ask for money in doing so then most likely you won't find it) at around 3pm. There was no sign that anyone was there so we asked some of the neighbors if they knew how to get a hold of them. They told us there should be a guy living downstairs that we could talk to and to knock on the door so thats what we did. He opened it and immediately began to tell us that the owner did not notify him anyone was coming to stay. He was nice enough to let us use his phone to call the owner, but the owner did not answer. He was hard to understand so we asked him a few more questions to which he got very angry. He said that his wife and kid were staying upstairs and that we could not stay there. We were not pushy and were just trying to understand what was going on and how after making a reservation over two months ago there was no 'sign' of us coming. He was obviously the wrong guy to ask, but after traveling for 10 hours and not knowing the area AT ALL this is not something anyone wants to have happen. Needless to say, we ended up leaving and having to find somewhere else to stay for the four nights we were supposed to stay here. We ended up paying alot more money in the process.
