These reviews are misleading. Yes the staff is friendly. Yes you can see the water. But there are many more cons than there are pros. Extremly small beach that you can't really sit on. You need to sit on the grass behind the cement wall. There is a constant 24 hour security guard on the grounds that sits there and... More

Our week at Villa Beach Cottages was one of the most wonderful accomodations we have experienced in our many travels. It is small and because of that you feel like you are a part of a family. THe staff is always there to help you make reservations, arrange a driver, chat about the island, or give advice, Mr. Hunte gave... More

My husband and I booked a stay at Villa Beach based almost solely on the tripadvisor reviews -they've never let me down in the past. We elected to stay in the older cottages because people had said they were charming and they seemed like such a good value. From first glance, the location seemed beautiful. It is right on the...

The beach villa cottages are really lovely colonial style cottages. We stayed in a one bedroom suite overlooking the beach, the villa was self catering and had a nice balcony overlloking the beach. We really loved hearing the sound of the sea from our villa. The villas are all well equipped and the staff were really friendly. Nothing is a... More

I have read all the reviews and am amazed at the high ratings given. Don't get me wrong...Villa Beach is a nice place to stay but there are positives and negatives that need to be taken into account. First of all, we stayed in a cottage which was clean and roomy but in need of updating. Secondly, the beach was... More

If relaxation is your reason for going to the Caribbean, it doesn't get much better than at the Villa Beach Cottages. The location, overlooking Choc Bay which has one of the nicest beaches in St Lucia, is perfect for reading, chatting with friends, writing or whatever else you want to do. Since all the units have full kitchens and there... More

Management response:

The Villa Beach Cottages is a family owned property that I have been managing since 1992. We pride ourselves in the high level of service we give to all our guests for all aspects of their stay. The safety and security of all our guests is very important to us. Although we have 24-hour security at the Villa Beach Cottages,... More

Fantastic personal touches make this a home, not a hotel! The staff at this establishment is highly personable, extremely helpful, and very thorough. We woke up every morning the sound of the waves, were able to prepare wonderful breakfasts in the full kitchen, and were in a perfect location to take advantage of quite a bit of the island's attractions!...

We woke every morning and said "One more day in Paradise." If you want your own private slice of paradise Villa Beach is the place for you. It is small (14 rooms) and family friendly. While you can be isolated from all the mass tourist experience, you are only minutes away form the center of Catries. Each villa has a... More
