A perfect hotel for a romantic hideaway. Our luxe lodge (7) had a postcard view that you have to see to believe. Watching the sun set over the Pitons from our balcony, drinking champagne, was breathtaking. Indeed, the architecture and smart layout of the luxe lodge takes advantage of the spectacular views by day, opening up to the elements just... More

We stayed here for the first 3 nights of our honeymoon in St Lucia.We wanted to stay at this end of the island first to do some of the activities and sight seeing, as most of the sights are located at this end of the island. We were really glad we did this and couldn't have wished for a better... More

We had lunch at the restaurant at the Boucan Hotel. We did not stay at the hotel. The food is of the highest quality and very very interesting with extensive use of chocolate (to be expected). The presentation is second to none and the taste follows through. We were a party of 7 and everybody was very pleased with the... More

First, the view: it is hard not to have a gorgeous view in St. Lucia, but this open air restaurant's vistas are breathtaking. Their focus on chocolate is never gimmicky...I was initial afraid of that. Everything was not only delicious, but inventive. They started us with bread and three dips, one of chocolate and balsamic vinegar, a butter with cocoa... More

My husband and I went here on the second part of our honeymoon. This hotel is what bumped our honeymoon from "fun and exciting" to "romantic, majestic and breathtaking". When we walked in our luxe lodge, I remember telling my husband that "now I REALLY feel like we are on a honeymoon". The rooms are amazing. Comfortable bed with mosquito... More

Had a lovely relaxing stay here. Be aware you are not on the beach and the pool is not great but if you want to relax, enjoy a fabulous chocolate tour with Cuthbert and drink delicious rum punch then this is the place for you. Great view of the Pitons but no direct view of the sea. Bathroom in luxury... More

We booked this holiday for a relaxing, romantic and recuperating holiday (7 days). Our intention was to do as little as possible and simply clear the mind...there's no TV, no major hotel entertainments, etc. but don't worry there is free Wi-Fi if you really need it! The travel agent even checked with us before booking that this was what we... More

Thanks for describing our beach shuttle. It really is the only way to take your beach time - whisked there by our liveried boat and crew and picked up again! More

We really wanted Boucan to be better than it was. We had been previously a couple of years ago and thought it was excellent. This time the service was a bit off and that really affected our experience. Upon being seated we were given our menus, but didn't order drinks until they came back about 20 minutes later. They had... More

This sounds so unlike us, it definitely was an unusual experience by our standards for which we apologise. Please do come and try us again, we would love the opportunity to 're-prove' ourselves to you. More

Stayed in a standard room....probably should have upgraded to a lux room. Had a really good time, although the chocolate menu got a little big too much after a week. Very relaxing. The Tree to bar experience is a must do. Some good walking around to the volcanic springs is worthwhile.

First things first: This tour was brilliant! You must go! We had no idea what to expect but it exceeded all expectations anyway. Cuthbert is a FANTASTIC tour guide, so, so knowledgeable and extremely interesting to listen to and watch. The tour is jam packed with super interesting information and is very interactive which is always fun. Hotel Chocolat is... More
