We stay chez Marie Alish 14 days between december 25th 2011 and january 8th 2012. We had a greayt time at St-Lucia. The manager and owner of the hotel is very friendly and helpful. We arrived on christmas day and he find an open restaurant for us! He also give us a lift to go and come back. His wife is also a person that you can trust. Our room were clean. Just a little few things: pressure in the swower was so-so and the air conditioning can be a little bit strong, but nothing to not go back there one day. You can make your own meal at the hotel and you will save money because restaurants are expensive. Also the hotel is close from the Famous Friday Night Jump Up at Gros Islet. You can walk there from the hotel but you will not here it from your room. The price of the room is quite good also.
The hotel is well located and the local bus pass just in front of the hotel. You can go to Castries in 15 minutes or to the Choc bay beach in 10 minutes. It takes 20 minutes to reduit beach and 15 minutes to Super J(the grocery). it takes 1h30 to go to the hotel from the airport.
St-Lucia is not so easy to travel by road. It is very accidented and you will in mountain with roads who never goes straight.Cars goes on the left side of the road and people drive very fast. It's a little bit dangerous. For example we took a bus from Castrie to Soufriere and it was a rollercoaster for an hour. We do not like and we were almost sick. Take a taxi for ride so long.
Beaches in St.Lucia are nice. The best one we went was Anse Chastanet, next to Soufriere. You will have to take a taxi boat from Soufriere: 120 EC dollars. Marigot Bay is weel to. Take the bus from Castries. You must do a catamaran tour to go to see the Pitons and the volcano!
You will enjoy St-Lucia, people are friendly and don't hesitate to send me an e-mail if you want more informations
