I have just spent 2 weeks at this hotel and found all the staff very friendly and helpful. The hotel is situated near the top of a hill, the road to the hotel has a lot of bends and is very steep. The free shuttle bus runs several time a day to the centre of Castries and beaches. The Saga representative, Elizabeth was very helpful.The optional trips out were very well organised, The food was good but not Caribbean, Sunday lunch in the main restaurant :- roast beef and Yorkshire pudding. Lunch was also served in the Cabana restaurant by the pool.Variety of sandwiches and fish and chips. The house wines were palatable. The rooms were very clean and air conditioning worked well. Location of the hotel was not to my liking, a bit isolated without any bars, snack bars or shops near the hotel.A pleasant relaxing place to stay.There are a lot of steps in the area.
