We stopped by for lunch one day- no reservation and didn't know exactly where we were going so please keep that in mind. When we went, there wasn't clear signage and first we missed the left turn into the gated area. After a brief drive up the hillside, we turned around and tried again. The gate attendant told us it...

We booked a spur of the moment trip to St. Lucia and decided on Hotel Boucan for its unique location on cocoa plantation and affiliation as a design hotel. Overall we had a very pleasant stay, though frequently my husband and I found ourselves saying that while Hotel Chocolat would almost have something right, it only seemed to get 85%... More

Hotel: We stayed at the Boucan Hotel Chocolat as part of a two phase trip in St Lucia. We stayed for 4 nights in bungalow 1 on a half board plan. We chose Chocolat as part one so we could rest and recover from jet lag in a tranquil setting, someplace where we could sleep, relax and eat. Boy did... More

We visited boucan twice - once for the Bean to Bar tour and once for a pre organised meal which was a wedding treat from my wife. The bean to bar was conducted on a balcony of a wooden shed type building which we never got to see inside. It was interesting and we enjoyed making our own chocolate. However... More

We did not stay at this hotel, but we did attend the Bean to Bar tour. It was fantastic! Kurt Regis was a fantastic tour guide. We got to "pick" a caco pod, taste the inside, and splice our own caco plants that will be planted on the estate. We leaned a lot about the agriculture that goes into making... More

From the gatekeeper to the housekeeping staff, all the way through what a lovely experience. All were friendly, funny, and helpful. The food and setting were hard to beat. There was a complete sense of serenity about the place and I cant wait to go back. Hints to better? A bigger more detailed map of the nature trails about.....and someway... More

beautiful and peaceful, amazing room with a fantastic view of petit piton - yes there are bugs in your room as well as a few lizards/frogs/birds but its what you expect when your room is wide open to the elements - this adds an extra bit of awesome to your stay - use your head and apply the bug spray...

We stayed at Hotel Chocolat during the second half of our honeymoon. We wanted to stay in Soufriere because of the lush vegetation and proximity to beaches. The lodges are large and luxurious. They have a great open air feel with a semi outdoor shower and window shutters that open wide to take in the magnificent view of Petit Piton... More

I think you summed up our proposition perfectly, thank you! - "If you want a pampered, romantic, relaxing retreat without the all-inclusive cookie cutter Sandals experience, Hotel Chocolat was great". More

I would defiantly recommend this hotel to anyone who doesn't take money into vacation consideration, but for anyone who cares about the old saying "what you pay, its what you get" this defiantly does NOT apply to this hotel or the island.

Thanks for your feedback and we have taken on board several of the points you make. It's worth bearing in mind, though, that we do include a lot of things in our standard prices. Here are some of them: A) Service Charge - we don't make any charge at all for this or expect a tip. Great service is included.... More

We spent ten nights at this idyllic heaven at the end of June. We had a warm welcome with a complimentary cocktail in the Club Boucan bar. We had booked a deluxe lodge (no 12) which had a fabulous view over the small Piton. We loved the free champagne in the room and rum punch! the little touches of chocolate... More
