Very few times, in this traveler's experience, a stay at a newly opened hotel goes without a hitch. One of those few times happened this week at Boucan by Hotel Chocolat. Rooms are spacious, open, contemporary, with great ventilation and with a bathroom "to live there", including amenities of a 5 start resort in any part of the world. The... More

First off, we stayed in just the standard lodge and it was beautiful! The room was awesome! We were always well stocked with huge fluffy towels, both shower and pool towels, the toiletries were top notch REN products. As a woman who is extremely picky with shampoo and conditioners, I never even used the stuff I brought. Nice touch with... More

Hotel Chocolat seems to divide opinion on Trip. But look at their website and if you like what you see then this is what they deliver, in spades! It’s contemporary modern with a light touch. Not stuffy, not formal and no linen covers for dinner. The staff are approachable, friendly and relaxed. If you want the feel of a 5-star... More

We stayed for 4 nights in February. The view and rooms were great, and the full cocoa tour can't be beat. However, I debated between a 3 or 4 rating because (a) the grounds were nice but not the kind at which I'd want to lounge around and (b) the food at Boucan didn't live up to how fantastic it... More

We stayed for 3 nights, and thoroughly enjoyed the visit to the hotel, the restaurant and this area of St Lucia ( we had 5 nights at Ti Kaye beforehand) It is adult luxury- intimate with only c 14 lodges, and a small but perfectly formed pool. We stayed in the standard lodge No. 1, and it had a great... More

Ambiance was wonderful. Open space, high ceiling, amazing view of the pitons. Despite being right next to Ladera, the view was interrupted and was breath taking. Loved the idea of cuisine based around cocoa. Fell flat on delivery of food and service. The food looked really good on the plates but the flavours were disappointing. Service was too slow, no...

We chose this hotel having enjoyed Hotel Chocolat's chocolates for many years. We spent 5 days there to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. A delightful experience. All the staff are so welcoming and friendly; the rooms are large, well equipped and set in beautiful grounds; the cuisine is very special in using chocolate in most of its dishes - do... More

Have stayed in literally hundreds of hotels and this has to be far the best ever experience. Great service with and informal feel. Superb food with a chocolate twist. Luxe rooms are a real treat. By far better than the anonymous beach resorts

IHotel Boucan is set in a lovely spot on the edge of the forest with views of the Petite Piton but a bit too low for views of the sea. We loved that it had none of the feel of the overdone resorts that populate much of the island. We are happy to have sprung for the luxe lodge, as... More

This place is gorgeous. The hotel lodge room was amazing and very romantic. The hotel side of the business was top rate. You could not ask for more. The chocolate walk with the tour guide (sorry forgot his name) was excellent and he was a great asset to the team. Food in restaurant was really good, the cost was high... More
