“Our paradise in St. Lucia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2004

We discovered this paradise quite by chance some 5 years ago and have been drawn back every year since, for a stay of at least six weeks. Villa Beach Cottages are situated conveniently near Castries and on the local bus route. Once through the portals one is transported into another world. The property is full of Caribbean charm, the cottages and apartments adorned with jalousies and surrounded by tropical flowers and shrubs - frequently visited by humming birds and other fascinating feathered friends. The plunge pool provides a pleasant cool-off. There are plenty comfortable sun loungers and parasols and in two steps you are on the wonderful stretch of Choc Bay's sandy beach and into the warmth of the Caribbean sea.

For us it has become a home from home but with the added bonus of the idyllic setting. All the cottages and apartments are pleasantly and comfortably furnished and the kitchens fully equipped. If you wish to have your meals prepared for you in true Caribbean style you certainly won't be disappointed. The property shop provides a large range of food, drink, souvenirs and other basic necessities.

The efficiency, friendliness and care of both management and staff complete the dream.

I have pretty high expectations after being in the travel industry for over 25 years. This far exceeded any of our dreams for a wonderful honeymoon. Our only regret is that it was far too short of a time with the wonderful people of Villa Beach. We spent a week at Sandals, and only had 2 nights at Villa Beach. When we return to St Lucia, we will definately return to Villa Beach Cottages. Check out the website. I loved the pictures, but they really don't do the place justice. Everything about it is just breathtaking! From the people, to the accomodations, to the sunsets............
THANK YOU ! THANK YOU!

My husband and I stayed at Villa Beach Cottages for our honeymoon, and absolutely loved it! It's a quiet villa located right on the beach, and the property is absolutely beautiful! Plus, there's the added incentive of the waves lulling you to sleep at night...there's nothing like it!
The most wonderful part is the fact that they make it a point to know all of their guests by name! This is a family owned business; and treat their guests like family! They treat each and every person as an individual...you are not just a vacationer here...you are their guest! They are so accomodating to every single one of their guests, and make it a priority to make sure you are absolutely and one hundred per cent comfortable/content.
Colin gives you a verbal tour of the entire island, recommending places to go see and eat, suggesting entertainment according to your likes and dislikes. If you have any questions or needs, Nadia and Neva are more than happy to help you out!
The atmosphere at Villa Beach Cottages is as surreal as it gets...you feel like you're in heaven; whether you're lying in the hammock soaking up the carribbean sun, or drifting off to sleep listening to the sound of the waves rolling to shore!
We will definately be returning to Villa Beach Cottages...our fifth wedding anniversary!!!

As travellers who have been to Europe, Alaska, Hawaii, Australia, Mexico, South America, all through the U.S. and Canada, and the Caribbean, we must confess that we have never met a host such as the Great Colin Hunte and his Amazing Staff. We arrived as strangers in a foreign country and left behind a land of special memories and a big bunch of close friends. These special people include the Amazing Nadia & Neva at the front desk, to our driver, the Impeccable Cuthbert, as well as the Fantastic Maids & Grounds Crew.

We walked to the local strip mall and purchased our treasures (Piton Beer & food) and cooked in our room or at the bar-b-que by the pool. We enjoyed the beach, walked to the restaurant next door and then toured the city. We went to the fort, went to a Big Outdoor Concert and participated in the night life.

We drove to the mountains and visited the Hilton in between the Pitons. We snorkled and went to the mineral baths. We also had dinner on top of the mountains with a view of the ocean and the Pitons at Ladera. All of this was just down the road from Colin's other property, The Exquisite La Dauphine Plantation.

Colin called us at La Dauphine to see how we were doing. When we were at Villa Beach, he checked on our every needs daily to make sure that we were happy. We never needed a thing. The Boss took care of Everything! He detailed a map for us to highlight all of the "Must See" items. I made a nice video movie of our trip, which I sent to him, so he could see how his wonderful country looks through the eyes of a Master Movie Maker and Artist, such as myself. He Loved it!

Again, the thing that I most want to convey, is that there are many, many places in the world where one can have a good time. However, I am hard pressed to remember any of the names of the people who worked at any of these establishments and certainly don't feel a sense of "friendship" with any of them.

This is not the case in St. Lucia at Colin Hunte's Famous Love-In Resort. We felt very sad to leave. On our last night there, Colin made special arrangements for us. We had been at the other side of the island and needed one more night at Villa Beach and he kindly took care of us. We received an evening call from our friends at the front desk wishing us a fond farewell. The final morning, Cuthbert showed up at 5:00 AM prompt in the pouring rain and took care of us and our bags, one last time. The plane took off in the mist and St. Lucia faded away into the clouds.

The service was fantastic, this place is perfect if you are looking to be secluded and enjoy the beach. If you are looking to get out, they can also plan island outings that are terrific.

My only regret is that there really wasn't anywhere to eat that was really close to the hotel. There is one mediocre restaurant but otherwise there is nothing. We couldn't find anywhere open before 9 to get breakfast before we went on our island tours. There isn't much to do after dark on St. Lucia either so if you are looking to be entertained consider an all inclusive, like Sandals or St. Andrew's which are on either side of the beach cottages.
