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

I spent 2 nights at this hotel, warm welcome from the staff and manager, the food was delicious especially the breakfast. The bed was comfortable and I had a good night sleep. I much comment on the flow of water when taking a shower it was wonderful it made the shower felt like a luxury or a spa treatment.

Although the Kimatrai Hotel did not look appealing when we drove up we already had reservations and decided to stay anyway....we are so glad we did! The property is a bit run down however it is very clean and the staff made our night just perfect. We stayed at the hotel after 8 days on a sail boat charter so... More

The good elements first- We loved meandering with the goats in the parking lot while awaiting service of our included continental breakfast. The staff were very warm and friendly and helpful, making a wonderful first impression of the St. Lucian people to us, an impression to be reinforced all week. The large balcony of our apartment overlooked the working fishing... More

I came to St.Lucia on a business trip, a friend recommended the hotel due to her past experience. Its in the Vieux Fort town so its walking distance from other businesses yet away from the rush. Upon arrival, i got the warmest welcome, the appartment was very clean and comfortable, though not very modern but comfortable. Kimatrai overlooks the Caribbean... More

Stayed at the hotel for a week, it was clean and affordable. The best part is the restaurant. One, if not THE best in the south of the island. Everytying is a treat. Keep some space for the desserts !! the Chocolate Fondants or the Tiramisu are the very best you'll ever taste. There is always activity at the bar... More

We spent the last night of our St. Lucia honeymoon in one of their apartments because of the hotel's proximity to the airport. My overall perception of Kimatrai is that it's an okay place to spend a night. It looks like quite a bit of money and effort was put into the place when it was built several decades ago,... More

A small, intimate establishment, the Kimatrai staff proved to be the selling point of this hotel. There was construction going on during our stay, so the exterior was not the best thing to look at. However our apartment was quiet the contrary, clean, well equipped and overlooking the beautiful Caribbean Sea. If you're looking for a spot to relax this... More
