Writing this whilst still here. There's nothing to fault and some people gotta find fault and moan for moans sake. This is our second visit in 2 years and if anything much has improved by Camilla,Navin and staff. Only just recently the outside of the main building has been painted and varnished. New seating and fabrics around the pool area.... More

Loved it second time round :0) could'nt fault the food, it's all locally grown so whatever is season will be available. All the staff are wonderful, so helpful, my chalet was a delight and cleaned every day. Very luck to see Henry the rep again, he can't do enough for you. If you want a relaxing, no worries kind of...

We had a lovely holiday in St Lucia staying at a Saga Hotel. The food was very good and plenty of it. Our room was lovely with a view over the gardens. In fact all the rooms had garden and sea views. Just like paradise! The only drawback was that the hotel was situated on the top of a very... More

I had a thorough tour round this hotel while in St.Lucia and would just say it is not the side of the island I would want to stay. Think Saga have bought a white elephant as the building is very old and you are virtually cut off from the tourist areas. However, to each his own, but would not stay... More

The hotel is on the hill and the drive up to it is a wee bit hairy but once in the hotel reception you forget all about that. The restaurant is just by the reception and we were given a light breakfast as we had an early start. Lovely fresh fruit and croissant with choice of coffees or teas. Elizabeth,... More

Just returned from 10day holiday at the Bel Jou, had a great time. Used Saga's door to door service to the UK airport & return, great as I live over 200 miles away. The hotel is excellently run, large bedrooms, well maintained grounds and facilities. Food buffet style most of the week with a good choice and variety. All the... More

Just returned from 3 weeks at the Bel Jou, Saga door to door service brilliant on outward journey,but return left much to be desired, the use of a VW bus to transport tired guests on a 200+ mile trip is NOT a good idea. The hotel was very good, food varied but mostly good, room very clean, bright & comfortable,... More

We've just returned from three weeks in this hotel in St Lucia. The hotel is owned by SAGA and caters mainly for folks aged 50 or over. The oldest person there while we stayed was in his 90's. The hotel is clean, well appointed with friendly, attentive staff. Food was plentiful and varied buffet style. Lulu's Cabana served light lunches,... More
