The food is excellent however you might want to go alone and keep what you see to yourself. I went for dinner and the place is run down. You could hardly get any drinks except the usual Piton, Heineken, Bounty Rum. We sat at a table and noticed ants on the floor feasting on droppings from the prior diners. We... More

We only stayed at this hotel because we missed our flight and needed to crash near the airport for 1 night. It was only $50 USD for the night, but you get what you pay for. No hair dryer, spiders in the windows and bathroom, they gave 2 towels that were sitting on a counter with ants crawling all over... More

We stayed in Kimatrai about 10 month ago and we still think it is a very good choice for a budget traveler to the southern part of the island. Apparently we are back! Budget travelers to Vieux Port may know that eating out in this part of the island is not as obviously easy as in the region of Castries... More

Needed an extra night's accommodation after staying in the North for two weeks. Staff were friendly and helpful. Decor was suffering from neglect. Water supply to room packed up periodically, as did the wi-fi connection. Sheets were stained but clean. However, it was just a short taxi ride to the airport - which was the main point of the stay.

Great for lunch. Super view & good food. Take a cab & go see the 2nd highest lighthouse in the world less than 10 minutes away!!

My wife and I flew into Vieux Fort, and decided to stay our first night there before striking out for Soufriere. The Kimatrai was a short (and cheap) taxi ride from the airport, and easy walking distance to restaurants, beaches, etc. Clean, quiet, cool (window AC unit), relatively affordable, and a nice little bar/restaurant downstairs - a cool late night...

Located in the Southern tip of the beautiful island of St. Lucia this affordable hotel is a valid option for travelers on the budget. 2 BR suite air-conditioned, no luxury but all the basics $62 per night! Huge balcony with the view of the local port, the sea and the town as well as in the distance Pitons. Good restaurant... More

We spend one night at Kimatrai Hotel - after flying in to St Lucia from Europe. Arriving in the evening and very tired. So we were very tired and that was probably to our advantage. And the Kimatrai Hotel. After the 5 minute drive from the airport (very close to the international airport, which is good reason and logic in... More

If you like the idea of a blood stain mattress or the thought of having to go up 4 flights of stairs with baggage, then the Kimatrai Hotel is what you are looking for. Sounds appealing dose it not it ? This God forsaken, hell hole is anything but a hotel. I have no idea what the other people are... More
