How can you describe a place like Fond Doux?....Incredible, beautiful, friendly, family! A multitude of adjectives comes to my mind! One thing is for sure we had a fantastic time and no place can equal their friendliness. We stayed for two weeks -first week and a half at the Cinammon cottage and then at the Banana Tree cottage. Both were... More

This review is better late than never. I wanted to write a review of our wonderful vacation at the Fond Doux Plantation from last winter. I was there with my husband and son and we enjoyed every moment at this wonderful place. It is truly magical and beautiful. The owners and the staff bent over backwards to make our stay... More

Fond Doux is really a magical place. And the staff keep it magical. The taxi driver Marcus is one of the very few honest taxi drivers we met in St Lucia. 1 word to sum up Fond Doux : GENUINE. So if you're looking for something impeccable with perfect (but fake) smiles and perfect everything it is not the right... More

Although a little late (we stayed here in February), I still wanted to put in my review of Fond Doux because we enjoyed it so much. We had a total of 4 people (2 couples in our mid-twenties) and stayed in the Cocoa Tree House (which was a free upgrade!). We absolutely loved the cottage and the plantation. I think... More

We had a relaxing and memorable holiday vacation at Fond Doux! Upon our arrival we were warmly greeted and shown to our cottage, the Cinnamon. What a surprise, flowers spelled out welcome on our bedspread and decorated the cottage. Each cottage is decorated with antiques and island furniture. The bathrooms are comfortable and well equiped. I loved awakening to the... More

This was our first trip to the Carribean. We selected Fond Doux because it had positive reviews, is small and locally owned, and is away from the more touristy northern part of St. Lucia. We were not disappointed! Upon arrival we were promptly greeted and offered a welcome drink in the open air restaurant. Then off to Angelina Villa, a... More

We could not have found a better location to spend a special anniversary. Our cottage, with comfortable king-bed and sitting area, was set among the gorgeous tropical gardens of a working cocoa plantation. Mornings were spent relaxing with coffee, cocoa tea, fresh "bakes" and fruit on our porch. It was truly a garden of Eden complete with tropical fruits, flowers... More

Beautiful location, wonderful staff, good food, and a great deal too! I would go back in a heartbeat. Everyone on staff went out of their way to be helpful and nice. They even put together a breakfast basket when they found out we were leaving before dawn to catch a flight. The hotel has a rustic setting, so those wanting... More

We stayed in January and had a wonderful vacation but I feel I have to point our that there are some things that need to be improved - particularly in light of the bizarre management response to similar comments made by others who seemed to stay around the same time as us (we were all pleased to see a new...

Once again I will not go into a war of words.

My wife and I spend our honeymoon at the Fond Doux Estate and it was wonderful. It is located in the southern half of the island, which is less touristy and commercial than the north. If you are looking for a busy nightlife, heavy crowds and loud urban noises, this is not the place. When we arrived, we were greeted... More
