We traveled with a 13 month old daughter and we loved the place. First, I will start with the arrival at the airport. The airport personnel and security officials are very friendly and the whole airport check in process was very smooth and quick. A mini-bus came to pick us up and we were on our way to hotel within 45 minutes from the arrival at the airport. It takes about 1.5 hours to get to the hotel on some very hilly and winding roads. The scenery is nice though and you will pass through some villages and small towns. You will also drive through the capital city of Castries. We were worried a little at how our daughter will handle this bus ride, but she actually slept most of the ride.
After approximately 1.5 hours we arrived at the hotel and we were immediately greeted and welcomed by the reception staff. At this point, I just want to mention that this resort has one of the friendliest staff we've ever met. Everybody is just amazing, especially reception staff. Since it was the lunch time when we arrived at the hotel, they immediately sent us to have lunch and drinks first and then to come back to check in. Same like at the airport, the check in process was smooth and quick. It all took no more than 15 minutes.
This resort is old and it definitely needs an upgrade, but it is kept very clean and the grounds are well maintained. There is lots of vegetation and flowers around the resort. Our room was good, clean and the air conditioning worked flawlessly. It was so quiet, you could hardly hear it during the night. They already prepared the crib for our daughter, it was actually a playpen. Our daughter loved it, it was comfortable and big enough for her. She slept very well in it. The TV was small, but we never watched it anyways. We only played some cartoons for our daughter, other than that, we never watched TV. We had a king sized bed, which was really comfortable. You also get a small fridge in the room and a seating area, with a small table and two chairs. We were on the ground floor, so there was no balcony, but more like a small patio with a table and two chairs. The bathroom, like the rest of the resort, looks old, but functional and clean. We didn't have any issues with the toilet, hot water, or water pressure.
The food for us was very good. Not a lot of variety, but it was very tasty. There was always something for us and even our 13 month old daughter ate very well. Fish was delicious every day and they tend to prepare food using their local recipes.
The beach was excellent. Our daughter loved it. She would play in sand and run around until she gets so tired and falls a sleep. They give you a fairly large umbrella at the reception, to use it at the beach. This is excellent if you prefer shade, or if you have small kids. The swimming pool is not very large, but the area around is perfect if you just want to relax, or read a book.
At this resort, you also get a free wi-fi internet connection in the lobby area only. This is perfect, if you need to check your emails, or stay in touch with family back home. The connection is pretty good, we used Skype every day. There is also Internet Cafe if you don't have a smart phone, or a tablet with you.
All in all, we had a great time and most importantly, our daughter enjoyed her very first vacation :)
