“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

We visited St. Lucia and the Villa Beach Cottages this year for the first time. The trip did not disappoint and our expectations were exceeded!

We were welcomed at the airport by our driver, Claudius. As he drove us to the Villas, he pointed out sites and gave us tidbits about the island. On the drive, we passed by Claudius' sister, Fenicia (sp?), who was purchasing food for her local restaurant, and we made plans to eat there the following day (which was an incredible meal!). We would highly recommend a trip to her restaurant if you are looking for a delicious St. Lucian meal.

From the moment that we arrived at the Villas, we were treated wonderfully by all the staff. We stayed in Villa 5 and the room was superb! The room was super clean and very nicely decorated. I especially liked the art by Adelaide Rice, a longtime visitor to the Villas, and the namesake of the room. The view from the Villa was incredible - it included a view of the hammock, palm trees and the ocean.

Olivia, Nadia & Neva in reception are very helpful in booking reservations and providing recommendations on things to do and places to go. They truly enhanced our visit to the island.

We are planning a wedding at the Villas in March 2013 and I am so excited for our return trip. Olivia, Nadia and Neva have been so helpful with the booking arrangements for our family. In addition, Susan, the wedding planner, has been phenomenal. All of her recommendations for us have been spot on. She is working hard to make sure that our special day is exactly how we want it.

We are looking forward to planning many more trips to the Villas in the years to come!

We venture from the US to a different Caribbean island every winter. Each one is different and we never know what to expect. This year was a wonderful surprise. We booked the Villa Beach Cottages online and were delighted with the facility, the area and especially the staff! One of the guys who worked there climbed a coconut tree in front of our room to pick, prepare and serve fresh coconut milk to us on the pation one morning. Another brought us a fresh grapefruit from his personal garden just because my daughter said she liked grapefruit!

The island is a tropical rainforest full of beautiful plants and extinct volcanoes. The water is beautiful and scuba diving on the reef with Dive Fair Helen was one of the highlights of our trip.

Villa Beach Cottages in St. Lucia is beautiful. The setting is so pretty and the cottages themselves are wonderful. Just throwing open the balcony doors each morning is breath taking. But the absolute best thing is the people. The concierge is amazing.The best staff I've seen in quite a while. Mr Hunte is a breath of fresh air. He even shared with our family a book from his personal library. This trip was my son's masters graduation present. It was just what we wanted, peaceful, personal, beautiful and relaxing

Room Tip: they all look pretty good to me

Our family of 4 (including two teenagers) just spent 8 days at Villa Beach cottages. We had a beach view apartment, and could hear the waves crashing as we slept. Idyllic! The staff were extremely friendly and accomodating; lots of excellent recommendations for all sorts of activities and excursions. We will definitely stay here again the next time we go to St. Lucia.

Room Tip: Ask for ocean view.

I rented a two bedroom suite with a full kitchen at Villa Beach Cottages. It had a beautiful private patio in the back of the suite. The price was very reasonable for that time of the year.
The staff exceeded my expectations, in that they were friendly, extremely helpful, especially when I tried to find some place to eat that was opened on Boxing Day. Their recommendations were on point and they made my stay there fabulous. I couldn't have planned it any more perfectly. The hotel is in a perfect location between Rodney Bay in the far south, a Mega 6 (Caribbean Costco), a cinema, Domino's Pizza, a coffee house, and gelato parlor to the immediate south and a small shopping mall with another grocery store to the immediate north. In addition, Castries is 5 minutes away via car but if you don't like cabing it for $15 US, the public buses stop in front in the hotel, which will take you to Castries in 10 minutes for less than 1 US dollar and Rodney Bay (south) in about 15 minutes for about 1 US dollar.
The property is beautiful, clean, neat, and quite. The people of St. Lucia are very friendly. I went to St. Lucia for vacation but gain much more when I stayed at the Villa Beach Cottages, formed new friendships and I can't wait to return sometime in 2012 to see my friends again.

Room Tip: If you can, stay at the Villa Beach Cottages, where you will be treated like family.

Stayed here last month for a few days. We had a lovely little beach view apartment. It was generally pretty quiet, in that there weren't that many guests around, which was great. The staff were very attentive and welcoming. One evening we had a BBQ and the staff decorated the table outside our apartment for us - table cloth, flower petals, candles, the whole nine. We didn't ask them to do it, but they are just so friendly and helpful.
We will DEFINITELY be going back. Lovely experience.
