I returned this morning from my first time at Bel Jou. Everyone wants different things on holiday, and The Bel Jou covers all the requirement. Saga have really got this right. There are daytime activities arranged by the Saga rep on site. You can join and, and maybe do something you may never have done, or you can relax by... More

We are recently returned from the Bel Jou. We found the whole experience most enjoyable. The hotel is run very efficiently but manages to have an informal relaxed feel about it. All the staff are friendly and happy and very well organised. You only need to be there a few days and they remember what you want...they knew I wanted... More

Having been to this hotel on 3 previous occasions I find the recent review a bit scaremongering comparing the Bel Jou to a prison. ALL Caribbean hotels have locked gates and security guards. Fact. The brochure describes exactly where the hotel is placed. Fact. As for ladies not going out unaccompanied I know that they did or paired off with... More

If your idea of a holiday is to stay in the hotel & lay by the pool, it will suit you, however for the more adventurous, it does somewhat feel like a prison! Situated halfway up a very steep hillside, overlooking Castries, which in itself can seem intimidating, the hotel gates are locked at all times & ladies travelling alone... More

We stayed at Bel Jou for two weeks from 19th May. Virtually everything here is excellent. True the location is at the top of a winding hill but the hotel's free transport travels regularly each day to all locations including three wonderful beaches and the capital Castries as well as Rodney Bay. We travelled with Saga who own the hotel... More

Lovely hotel in great location on top of hill. Staff were excellent, Elizabeth needs special mention, she could not have been more helpful. Had room on 5th floor with great views. Food was good, mainly buffet and with a good choice. Plenty of excursions available and shuttle bus ran all day, as it is virtually impossible to walk into town... More
