Good place to stay in town
Posted Jan 31, 2012
We stayed the first few days at the Jalousie Plantation, a 6 star resort not far from Soufriere, fantastic, but also wanted some time in town to see the real St Lucia.
When we arrived it looked a little run down and a bit of a shock after what we had come from, but when you get used to it, it’s a nice little hotel. The staff are nice and friendly and the room was clean enough and it did what we wanted, be a base at a low cost in town.
There are no sun beds and you can’t use the beach outside due to it being where the local lads congregate. We found that there is another resort about a 2 mile walk away up the hill where you can use their beach for free, but take your own towels as they charge 5usD for each rent, took us 35 mins.
Food was not good, breakfast is ok but very limited, and there was not much on the menu, when we were there, it was all off! But there is another hotel next door where the food is ok. All in all, it’s a good base in town. Would I go again..Yes.
