My self, wife and two children aged 3 and 7 stayed at the plantation for two days. We had a very relaxing and enjoyable time. The room was spacious, very clean and private. Sitting out in the rocking chair looking out at the garden was beautiful. The gardens are a delight with mango trees, grapefruits and many other trees. The... More

I had an amazing time here. The experience was peaceful, tranquil and idyllic. The staff were friendly, pro-active and helpful. The rooms are set in French-colonial style cottages and much attention had been paid to the detail of restoring them to luxurious standards. Each cottage was spacious and had its own facilities. The best thing about staying there was falling... More

It was first real St Lucian breakfast, I thought the service was top drawer without being like a chain hotel. It was a really special place. Lovely walks and scenery and the pool was nice too.

The cottages and location are absolutely lovely. Of the three chefs preparing food for the restaurant, one was excellent, one was good, and one was fair. Grew to love the chocolate cake!

Just returned from staying at Fond Doux. Lovely plantation. The cottage was spacious with a kitchen and a lovely porch with a view of the nearby trees, birds, geckos, and nearby mountains.

Fond Doux is on a cocoa plantation in the middle of the rain forest. It is beautiful & the owner told us all the cottages there were former houses that were going to be replaced by something more modern. He buys them, brings them to his property & rebuilds them.
