“Dream location.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

I was attending a conference and wanted to avoid staying in the big international hotel where it was located and my daughter wanted somewhere to read. A suite in Villa Beach Cottages was just what we needed: quiet, secluded, with the rooms opening directly (if on the ground floor) onto the decking giving onto the beach. Staff couldn't be more obliging. Very good support facilities -- internet cafe, laundry; no catering but the fully equipped kitchen enabled us to make breakfast. The neighbouring restaurant shut too early in the evening for us to be able to make much use of it, though they were anxious to oblige. My only regret is that I didn't get to see the Walcott room with his paintings, because it was occupied at the time. Good to see a painting by Ron Savory in Reception. Highly recommended.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Villa Beach Cottages for five days and it was totally amazing. There was not a single thing to complain about - and I have been to many hotels that I can compare. The hotel manager gave an one hour introduction on the island and what's there to do and explore.
The cottage was beautiful with a Jacuzzi inside from which you could see the ocean and the beach. It was always very clean and the hotel offers many services like different personal cooking or the rent of a barbecue grill. They also have a library and clothes washing room.
I totally recommend this hotel who is looking for some luxury relaxed days in the Caribbean islands!

Room Tip: The rooms upstairs (the topper cottage) is maybe a bit nicer than downstairs

This was our first visit to St. Lucia and Villa Beach Cottages. Collin, Nadia, and Patrick took wonderful care of us. In all of our travels, never had we experienced being so close to the ocean. You literally walk outside your villa directly onto the beach. Collin took time to educate us on his wonderful island, Nadia took care of all dinner and excursion reservations, and Patrick watched our every need on the premises. Truly pampered! We already miss the palm trees and ocean views!

This is my 3rd.attempt at leaving a review,hopefully the third one is the charm.We have been going to St.Lucia since 1992 and stayed at Villa Beach for the 1st.time October 2004 and we have been staying there twice a year ever since.Colin and his staff are wonderful,you are made to feel like one of the family from the day you arrive.We feel that you could not ask for a better location as Villa Beach Cottages is situated right on the beach.The cottages are large and spacious with a fully fitted kitchen.If you can catch Colin when he has a quiet moment it is a special treat to be able to talk to him about the history of St.Lucia and his other property,La Dauphine Estate.We love St.Lucia,have met some wonderful and amazing people over the years and have made some really good friends.Being able to stay at Villa Beach where we are so content and happy is truly the icing on the cake for us.

The Villa Beach Cottages are the perfect combination of:

1) proximity to the beach...any closer and you would be in the water!
2) privacy...the beach and pools are never crowded here
3) views from the balcony
4) large villas with full kitchens
5) exemplary service - Colin and his team do a great job of making you feel as if you are family visiting their home.

Kudos also to Claudius, who is much more than a taxi driver - he is a great personal tour guide. We will definitely return to the Villa Beach Cottages.

I spent a few days at Villa Beach Cottages with my family, a party of 6. Due to the great variety of cottage size Colin was able to accommodate all of us all in one cottage. With 2 huge double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms,it was spacious and beautifully furnished with all amenities within if I was inclined to prepare a banquet meal !. Although Villa Beach being not far from the centre of the capital Castries, or the vibrant Rodney Bay, we were faced with much variety in terms of Restaurants and Bars. At Villa Beach the staff were friendly, welcoming and helpful. The proximity to the beach was idyllic and I was mesmerized by the breathtaking views each morning upon awakening. A dip in the pool first thing in the morning was a great pre-cursor to breakfast. Colin also arranged the hire of a rental vehicle which enabled us to tour the island throughout our stay, at a reasonable cost. I will certainly return to Villa Beach as the accommodation allows me freedom to explore this beautiful island as well as enjoy all the trappings of a beach holiday.

Room Tip: From my perspective all the rooms face the beautiful views of the sea. It seems the choice is do you...

We spent 5 nights at Villa Beach from 6/9-6/14 and if we ever get back to St Lucia (and we plan to), Villa Beach will again be our home away from home. Staff - fantastic! Colin welcomed us our first morning and spent about an hour giving us a historical perspective of St Lucia and the Villa Beach property. He really made us feel welcome and his knowledge and passion are impressive. Nadia was our first contact when we made the reservation and she was as welcoming in person as she was in arranging our reservations virtually. Villa Beach arranged for Claudius to drive us whenever we had a tour or wanted to travel to dinner. Taxis are very expensive in St Lucia, however drivers can be arranged directly through Villa Beach and we saw Claudius as more than a taxi driver, he was a guide that enhanced our vacation. He has great personality and is a veritable wealth of knowledge. He took us on a personal day tour of St Lucia's west coast - the personal attention and ability to personalize our experience was priceless.

We were in Room 3, an upstairs 1 BR suite with full kitchen and utensils. Had a balcony that was maybe 30 yards from the ocean - meaning we heard waves throughout the day and night, very relaxing! The ocean's just a few yards away, but the property also has a pool. Though we aren't big pool people, we did take advantage of the hot tub. There is a Sandals right next door which likely works our well for many people. We, however, like the smaller more personal touch and Villa Beach definitely provides that.

The restaurant right next door is named The Wharf. Don't let the outside turn you away, the food is good and reasonably priced. Can either eat there (we did once) or bring it to your room (we did that once too). You can also arrange with Villa Beach to order from a restaurant they work with to have dinner delivered to your room. We did that once and it was excellent.

All in all, a fantastic 5 days spent in St Lucia. As with most vacations - it's the people and the "connection" that moves a vacation from "good" to "great". This experience was memorable and I wouldn't change a thing. Thanks VBC!
