I have just spent 2 weeks at this hotel and found all the staff very friendly and helpful. The hotel is situated near the top of a hill, the road to the hotel has a lot of bends and is very steep. The free shuttle bus runs several time a day to the centre of Castries and beaches. The Saga... More

The Bel Jou caters almost wholly for SAGA customers, who are usually in the "senior" age bracket. It does not offer some of the sporting and leisure facilities that might be found at a hotel serving a wider age range but provides most of the other services that would be expected.. We stayed for one week in March, and found... More

Stayed here in February for two weeks and had a relaxing stay. My husband and I wanted to get away from the cold dreary British winter to warm sunshine. However we had a lot of rain, and St Lucia is famous for it apparently! Weather apart, the hotel was welcoming, the staff very pleasant and we had a relaxing stay.... More

The hotel is rather nice, rooms spacious, fresh and clean, top floor ones have great views over to the sea and gardens, which is what we had. Nice pool and good poolside lunchtime eatery serving light meals. The gardens are very well kept. However, this hotel is more for the Saga upper age group as there is no real atmosphere... More

The Saga owned Bel Jou is one of the nicest hotels I have ever visited. It is certainly not the smartest but it has something very special that makes people go back, often more than once. The staff, headed by Camilla and Navin, are delightful. It's hard to pick out any one in particular but I must mention how lovely... More

However we did really... More

Stayed late Oct 13 to early Dec and enjoyed every minute . Had a single bungalow - roomy with all the things you need for a comfortable stay. The food was varied and well presented ( I particularly loved the breakfasts ! ) and sitting out on the restaurant balcony both in the morning and at night was lovely .... More

Having travelled afar, this little corner of the world is a firm favourite. Comfy rooms in the main block, lovely staff throughout, good food & smoothies by the pool. It is a little like going to a Health Retreat. We travelled out on the 3 rd Dec our 1 st trip with Virgin. They looked after us well. At the... More
