Great view, lots of privacy, villas need some TLC
Posted Feb 15, 2016 on Hotels
Very nice resort overall, overlooking the Petit Piton and Malgretoute Beach.
Villa was roomy and well laid out, provided ample privacy.
Having our own plunge pool was a nice touch.
Staff was wonderful: friendly and helpful as needed.
View of the Petit Piton was simply incredible.
Minor appliance issues during our five day stay: the refrigerator was not cooling properly and was eventually replaced; the electronic safe malfunctioned (with passports locked inside)the evening before we were to fly home.
Meals were expensive. An unremarkable barbecue buffet was US$180 ($75x2, $30 tip). (Consider exploring other dining options- there are numerous alternatives a short drive away).
Mattress was adequate, although it was on the firm side. (It was surprising that a higher-end resort such as this one does offer pillow top mattresses).

Great to hear about that, for the most part, you had a wonderful experience with us! It sounds like you had a bit of bad luck with some of the fixtures in your room. This is certainly not the norm and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience. Regarding the restaurant prices, they can, indeed, seem a bit high compared with North America. However they reflect the cost of high-quality ingredients in a small, isolated country like St. Lucia. We hope you will enjoy another vacation with us soon!
