I kept the best for last (see my other St. Lucia reviews.) It’s had to know where to start. Fond Doux was totally unique. It was rustic – but that was part of its charm. The working plantation had 15 cottages amid beautiful plants and trees. (Take their tour to see how the cacao gets produced.) Two restaurants served meals... More

We loved the fruit in the room, including a cocoa pod full of jungle M and M's, the free bottle of water was great and we were impressed by the free wifi in... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel on the last night of our 2 week holiday, having travelled around the SVG Islands. What a fabulous hotel. Our only regret is that we did not have longer to stay, one night was just not long enough! From the welcome on arrival to our checkout, the attention was superb. We had... More

My sister, mom, niece and I recently spent two nights at Fond Doux as a birthday staycation for my mom. From reservation to check out, the service was friendly and accommodating, the ever present "personal touch" captured our hearts. Our cottage was serene, and sitting out on the porch was so calming. As a Caribbean girl (St. Lucian), I was... More

We recently stayed 3 nights at Fond Doux and liked the hotel. However, although there were many positives, there were a number of minor points which prevent me from giving a 5-star rating. Our cabin was comfortable. Located quite a way up the hill it enjoyed cool breezes so that the lack of air-conditioning was not important and the overhead... More
