We stayed at the beautiful Hotel Chocolat recently for a week. It is a unique small hotel with only 14 lodges in lush tropical vegetation on an old cocoa plantation with stunning views over the Petit Piton. Our luxe lodge had a comfy large bed, huge balcony and a great rain shower. The staff could not have been friendlier and... More

We stayed one night, 11/20, after spending the week at Sandals. This was the anniversary of my husband proposing to me so we wanted to make our last night on the island special and it surely was. The hotel is absolutely beautiful and quaint. Dinner was by far the best we had on the island. We enjoyed our facials at... More

We had lunch at this restaurant during a weekend in Soufriere and it was great. We really enjoyed the use of local cocoa thorugout the menu. The view is absolutely stunning and every course was just delightful! Our only disappointment is not being able to purchase the wonderful chocolates that Hotel Chocolat is known for. Great spot in Soufriere!

We'll settle for 'every course just delightful' and 'view is absolutely stunning' - thank you very much indeed. We would like to stock more of our Hotel Chocolat creations in our little gift shop but focus more on things we make on the estate. We are currently building a chocolate factory on the estate so will have a larger local-made... More

My fiance and I stayed here on our engagement trip and it was truly the best resort I have ever stayed at.

We booked on the Chocolate Tasting Club week at the end of September and it was a marvellous seven days. The food was particularly memorable, just one gorgeous meal after another (we paid for it by gaining several pounds over the week!). We were in one of the Luxe lodges and saw many amazing sunsets from the balcony. The staff... More

We were picked up from the airport by the hotels organised transfer and it was only about 40 minutes to the hotel. We were greeted with complimentary cocktails and drinks in the bar over looking-amazing view. It is exactly as appears in the photos, the view is absolutely breathtaking.

We stayed at Sugar Beach and only visited Hotel Chocolat to do the tours which were fabulous. The guide was knowledgeable and entertaining and took time to answer all of our questions.
