“Wonderful holiday!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

We chose Villa Beach Cottages as we wanted something different to the all inclusive resort type of holiday. We had a wonderful room on the upper floor which was called the Derek Walcott Suite. It has a double height ceiling in the bedroom, a whirlpool bath and a very comfortable bed. The balcony is spacious and a perfect place to relax and watch the sunset or eat . There is an extremely well equipped kitchen with everything you need to cook a meal if you feel like staying in. The General manager and owner Colin Hunte was kind enough to spend an hour and a half with us giving us excellent suggestions of things to do on St Lucia and the best restaurants to visit. The girls at reception were very friendly and efficient, booking our excursions for us and offering alternatives if there were no spaces left. We decided not to rent a car as there are not many signposts on the island and instead used two of the hotel´s drivers Claudius and Sadiq. They are both extremely knowledgeable about St Lucia and made sure we got the best out of our excursions. We would highly definitely recommend Villa Beach Cottages.

Room Tip: The upper rooms are very quiet and have a lovely view of the beach.

We stayed at Villa Beach Cottages in late May 2014 and it exceeded all of our expectations! The photos on their web site are definitely real and is what we saw everyday from our 2nd. floor suite. The entire staff and their affiliates were most accommodating, friendly, & caring, yet most professional, from our host who spent several hours with us to provide a history of the Villa, St. Lucia, the sites, restaurants, etc. to our driver Claudius who chauffeured us around the island, the wonderful ladies in the reception area who made reservations for dinner, drivers, caterers, etc., our delightful housekeeper, Margaret, and those keeping the pools and grounds neat, clean and secure. The Villa provided the opportunity to personalize your outings, doing as much as you wanted or as little, like relaxing by one of the pools, a late dip to the hot tub, or sitting on your veranda watching a gorgeous sunset. The gardens surrounding the units are impeccable and you do feel like you are in paradise. We found the Villa under a category called "Boutique Hotels" which is what we were looking to find. Reservations were a snap with their website, a few phone calls, and emails. Would highly recommend!

Room Tip: Great view of Choc Bay and the Caribbean our second floor corner unit, with only a short walk to the...

We were looking for an apartment type place to stay at the North end of St. Lucia. Villa Beach got great reviews and after speaking with the ladies at the reception desk over the phone were convinced that this would be a good place to stay. It is exactly as depicted in the photos. We rented an upstairs unit to enjoy the view and ate all our meals on the covered veranda when not eating out. The beach was great for morning walks and late afternoon swims. Even though there were families there it was not noisy. Everyone was very helpful. We rented a car right at the unit and drove all around the north end of the Island. When we wanted to tour the west side of the island we hired a driver, Claudius, and had a great tour. He then dropped us at our next hotel. We would definitely rent here again.

Room Tip: We have only stayed here once so we can't compare rooms but we stayed in a deluxe one bedroom vi...

Beautiful rooms and wonderful people. The price is above average but truly worth the cost. The hotel recommended tours were a great way to get a taste of St. Lucia and the tour guides where fun to hang out with for the trips.

We stayed at Villa Beach Cottages for one week in April 2014. Direct booking over the internet was very easy, replies to any query were answered very promptly. Our overall experience was excellent - what more can one say. We stayed in an upstairs unit overlooking the beach. Breakfast on our balcony each morning provided an excellent start to the day. Many good restaurants at Rodney Bay, a short "local bus" ride along the coast. Excellent position, excellent accommodation, extremely helpful staff. Well recommended.

Great place. Family owned and run. We were there a week. We wanted a place that was a base to see the island but also was on the water and we could relax when not touring.
The owner provides an island overview; staff are friendly and respectful; car rental and rides avaialble on site; nice beach and sunsets; 1/2 mi walk to store. We rented a car for 3+ days and saw remote beaches, national parks, and ate at nice restaurants recommended by the owner.
The island is beautiful, there's a lot of history to see if you like that, and the pitons are spectacular. We took a 1 day drive tour with a guide to the south of the island which was well worth it to see the pitons, villages, and botanical gardens. Most nights we ate in - the kitchen is well equipped. Two drawbacks: It took 1 1/2 hr to get to Castries from/to the airport and if you rent a car, the roads and signs are terrible.

Room Tip: We preferred the 2nd floor for the view, privacy. The surf was loud so we sometimes had to close win...

My husband and I Loved our stay at Villa Beach Cottages. We woke up each morning to have breakfast out on the balcony, gazing at Choc beach and the sea beyond.The friendly staff made us feel at home right away. The staff recommended amazing excursions for us that we thoroughly enjoyed. The property also has an outdoor grill and tables that allow you to barbeque and dine right by the sea. Amazing! In addition, Villa Beach is within walking distance of a grocery store and a few restaurants. You can also rent a car for farther excursions right on the property. It was a taste of paradise and we hope to return soon.
