As I write this review, I am sat next to the infinity pool, looking out over the Pitons and I am so glad that we chose this hotel for our honeymoon. My husband and I had never been to St Lucia before, so read lots of reviews of the hotels and chose Boucan based on other's experiences and we weren't... More

My husband and I celebrated the first half of our honeymoon at the Boucan by Hotel Chocolat. Upon arrival we were greeted with delicious cocktails while the friendly hotel staff made checking in to our room an absolute breeze. (Literally, we were overlooking the beautiful Pitons in the Boucan, open-air lobby/restaurant) At our leisure we walked through the immaculate property... More

Bit delayed this review, apologies.

They have excellent service and some outstanding field tours on their cocoa plantation which makes me want to go again and see how my cocoa plants are doing. Bernabie and Cothbert are my best people there. The restaurant and Kitchen served me unforgettable meals.

St Lucia is so beautiful, we really enjoyed our trip here. We spent the first 4 nights of our trip at the Carribbean Blue suite in the Marigot Bay area (which was also lovely - see separate review) before moving on to Hotel Chocolat for our last 2 nights. The rooms were very nice, modern and clean with some nice... More

Our aim at the beginning was to have legendary breakfasts which were free to guests - sounds like we are on our way. Our 'Boucanier' boat is a must-do next time you come. It's the best way to see the coast, snorkel, dolphin watch and much more. More

Amazin' hotel. No air-conditioning and open rooms on one wall (with shutters). The showers are also outdoors. Unique and wonderful environment with an excellent restaurant. There are alot of steps so not for the physically-challenged. Not to be missed.

Wonderful, modern stylish hotel with villas where you could be in a top uk boutique hotel. Set within the cocoa plantation the hotel is all about the chocolate, with dozens of small carefully considered design touches and branding such as cocoa pods in the room, chocolate and cookies delivered to the room each day, and a complimentary cocktail and botle...

Stylish design hotel, fantastic staff, outstanding food & breath-taking views; highly recommended. Set in the ethically-minded Hotel Chocolat cocao hillside plantation, this intimate, relaxing hotel is 20-30mins drive from the nearest beach (Jalouise) but in an idyllic location. Quiet, bar the soothing forest sounds, it may almost be too remote for some for fortnight stays but is absolutely on the... More
