View, service and food all amazing. Highly creative cuisine and we plan on returning again tomorrow. Chocolate balsamic dipping sauce for the bread was inventive and delicious. While the restaurant is cacao based, it is not at all sweet (except the desserts which were excellent) Highly recommended and absolutely the best restaurant on St Lucia.

Ok trip advisor fans - I tried the budget do it yourself vacation and stayed for 7days at the treehouse. It was not awful but not great. There are advantages to a hotel: people are nicer, friendlier, services are included and this hotel does daily laundry which is fantastic . They also stock the hotel with chocolate and nuts and...

We have just left this hotel this morning and even though we have a spectacular view of the Pitons from a large veranda as we write this, we are missing the Hotel Chocolat. From our arrival to departure we continually were impressed with the thoughtfulness given to every detail. The photos posted do not do justice to the hotel. It... More

This little boutique hotel is fabulous. It is small and personal. All the staff are friendly and courteous. They make sure everything is exactly what you want or need. The rooms are lovely and have everything you could possibly need. The owner comes round most mornings at breakfast to make sure you are having a nice time and to see... More

We visited in February, the perfect time to escape the winter. I have been mulling this review over since, wanting to be able to convey exactly what is was about Boucan that makes it a standout. We've been to many, many beach resorts in the Caribbean over the years. Most of them we have enjoyed. Although Boucan gives you access... More

We stayed here for 4 nights when on a sailing holiday, the staff were lovely and the cabin was gorgeous. We did not have one of the luxe lodges but the view from the pool area is sufficiently lovely to not need it. We sat out in the tranquillity zone at night with a beer, or 2!, and just relaxed....

Went here as part of a two centre special holiday Great antidote to the corporate Sugar Beach down the road. So genuinely friendly and welcoming. Restaurant excellent with good range of foods and some resident only special orders. West coast explorer excursion was good, nice boat and friendly crew. Also good that the beach shuttle is free. Don't miss the... More

We were visiting St Lucia for a 2 week holiday and the one night we stayed here was a highlight of our trip. From the moment you arrive you will know that you are staying somewhere special and the entire place is infused with luxury. Arriving just after lunch we were welcomed with a choice of cocktail in the restaurant... More

What a great stay we had at Hotel Chocolat!. Yes, it took a while to get used to sleeping with crickets, frogs and other noisy night creatures, but it's nice of the staff of the hotel to include ear plugs!. Our standard lodge was very comfy and we loved the open shower concept. The restaurant food was delicious and we... More

My wife and I stayed four nights at the Boucan and we more than enjoyed our stay. We both have stressful jobs and our decision to stay at the Boucan was largely influenced by a desire to get away from anything that resembled responsibility. The hotel is small, quiet, peaceful and friendly. This isn't a hotel in the model of... More
