In March 2009, we made our second visit to East Winds. As we experienced last year, our stay was superb. The accomodations are comfortable and vey well kept. The food is excellent. I am sure it will take me a few more weeks to loose the extra pounds that I added during my stay. The beach is serene and the... More

I've just returned from my third trip to East Winds Inn on the North West coast of St. Lucia. Although I knew what to expect from my previous two visits (2007, 2008), I was still happy to find this beautiful location in such pristine condition. Not only were the grounds and gardens more lush than ever, the resort has added... More

East Winds is an all-inclusive property located about a 75 mins drive from the St. Lucia International Airport at Vieux Fort, (UVF) at the south end of the island. Taxi fare is us$80 each way. Seasoned travelers might consider flying into Bridgetown, Barbados, then using LIAT to fly to G.F. Charles Airport, (SLU), at the north end of the island,... More

We had a fabulous time at East Winds. I would not describe the hotel as fancy, more that it has a great charm. You will find everything that you need. It is not long before you feel you have been there forever and we quickly felt that we would want to return again. Delightful staff, varied menus and plentiful drink.... More

yes the reviews are all true - it's a lovely hotel, the food is good and the staff are lovely. However for most of the week we were there there was a JCB on the hill ovelooking the hotel banging away with a pile driver - tends to dent the experience a little. According to our taxi driver this had... More

Our family of 5 returned to East Winds for our second consecutive Christmas. We were greeted at the front office with cold towels and refreshing water and from that moment on, had a totally stress free 7 days. The staff seem very happy at East Winds. The Generall Manager, the bartenders and servers, even the head gardner and security person,... More

Having read all previous reviews by other guests at East Winds and a personal recommendation from our travel agents - my husband and I chose East Winds to spend 9 nights during mid to late January. We were looking for a complete 'chill out' experience, and were not disappointed. The cottage (no. 24) was set in beautiful tropical gardens -... More

My husband and I stayed at East Winds over New Year's. It's a lovely place with a charming and dedicated staff, including a manager who personally greets visitors and even wished us farewell as we departed. As others have noted, this is not fancy-schmantzy place with a lot of "bling", so if that's what you want, East Winds would not... More
