The location, along with the use of the courtesy bus ensures that you can enjoy a peaceful holiday reatreat with stunning views, whilst still having easy access to fabulous beaches or, go shopping. Whatever you want to do, its a 'win-win' situation. The hotel itself is excellent. Rooms and public areas are spotlessly clean and well maintained. Along with great... More

My first ever SAGA trip and I was filled with apprehension! I needn't have worried - everything about the hotel and staff went above and beyond my expectations! From the moment we arrived until the day we left, we could not have asked for more: food - excellent with a great choice at all meal times - a big "must"... More

Being a Saga-owned/run hotel and having never previously tried them, I read the trip advisor reviews and, despite reservations about barking dogs, books anyway (Sep12). Placed in ground floor room - in what was previously a storage area I understand - which had full width glass and excellent sound proofing compared with other rooms on other floors of main block....

I spent Christmas and New Year at the Bel Jou with a friend. We have a room each in the main building on the second floor. Views great and the birds came onto the balcony if you spread a bit of sugar out. Watch out as the little black ones will come into an open door and pinch the sugar... More

From the moment I arrived I felt the calm and chilled atmosphere work it's magic on me. The single bungalows have a unique feel to them although the view is limited. Having mentioned this the first morning I was whisked away to a room with a view. And what a view! Paradise on your doorstep and wildlife at your fingertips.... More

We returned on 7/12/11 from a 15night stay at the Bel Jou. The hotel is situated up a very steep hill a mile or so from Castries but there is a regular shuttle bus to the town and local beaches. They have installed solar panels to heat the water in the appartments. During our stay we had 8 days of... More

Thanks for your feedback about your time at the Bel Jou Hotel and we're really sorry that you were disappointed. As I'm sure you'll remember from our brochure, we make reference to the fact that the hotel is set atop a steep hill, but I'm pleased that you were able to take advantage of the regular bus service that we...

The only complaint I have about this hotel is that some of my fellow guests seemed to enjoy complaining and finding fault! Surrounded by beautiful scenery, trees, flowers and birds, not to mention friendly, helpful staff some of these guests seemed determined to have a miserable time! And EVERYONE knows in advance that there are lots of steps and no... More

The Hotel could be called 'Steps'. Fabulous for Able Bodied not so for Disabled. No Lifts, although not high rise so no problemo. Lovely, clinicaly clean, permanently Air Conditioned Bedrooms. Hand Picked, smiling,well mannered and polite St Lucian Staff. The Hotel staff are at the top of the list for making the holiday perfection. A long, long, way from any... More

The Bel Jou should be re-named Steps. Perfect for Able bodied not so for Disabled. Buffet style Dining, perfect for Able bodied, again not for Disabled. A long, long, long way from any beaches, hence the prices. (Why do you think they supply Binoculars in every room and a telescope on the Verandah?) Walking to a Beach is not really... More
