Our tour group from Carnival Sailings stopped here for a creole buffet lunch. The food was pretty good, about 6 trays of different foods. Salad, rice, fish, beans, banana pie and chicken legs, the chicken was really good. Servers were nice & polite.

The souffle and creme brulee were worth waiting for!) Our first night, the rack of lamb was terrific! Some of the portions were off - the lunch pasta was way too large, but... More

The service was very friendly and fairly efficient. The food was tasty, especially the lamb and chicken dishes. The drinks were also reasonably priced. The only... More

The most striking thing about the Fond Doux Holiday Plantation itself is the natural setting. We stayed for a couple of nights after we hiked the Gros Piton and it was just easier to eat in at the Jardin Cacao than go to the nearby resorts (Ladera, etc) or to the town of Soufriere (about 15 minutes' drive away). The... More
