After the horrible drive to the hotel along a very bumpy, long and dangerous road we arrived at a tired looking hotel.
The room we was given was sub-standard and we had to climb up an extremely steep hill to get to it.
The walk to the beach was a joke, 100's of steps! When we finally got there rude staff and sales people approached us.
We had lunch at the beach restaurant, the menu wasn't good and neither was the food. Over cooked and salty.
We had dinner at both the Indian restaurant and the main restaurant during our stay. I can honestly say we were disgusted with the food. Small portions, badly executed, lack of flavour... Can anybody cook fish at this hotel? Dry is an understatement.
My husband and I had booked 1 week at Anse Chastanet. after 2 nights we decided to go back to Jalousie Hotel which we had stayed the previous year. Jalousie Hotel is far superior in every way. Anse chastanet is like a prison. WARNING DONT STAY HERE!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Tranquility, Romance, Adventure: What were Caribbean hotels like when you sat watching the sunset instead of cable TV? You can still find that Classic Caribbean at Anse Chastanet on St. Lucia’s quiet southwestern coast where two magical peaks, the Pitons, leap from the sea and the mountains are covered with luminous greenery.Architect owner Nick Troubetzkoy believes passionately in nature. So he created a hotel that makes the foliage and the flowers, the perfumes and the peaks, the sea and the bird song an integral part of your vacation experience. The estate encompasses 600 lush tropical acres bordering two soft sand beaches. The resort’s two crystal-clear bays are part of a designated marine reserve protecting miles of colorful coral reefs teeming with tropical fish.With such a unique setting as his canvas, Nick Troubetzkoy was inspired to design a one -of-a-kind resort. A dozen rooms are tucked in behind the coconut palms that line the beach and the remainder tip toe up a flower decked hillside, taking advantage of the captivating scenery all around. Anse Chastanet’s ever growing art collection provides a visual feast of its own. There are impressive wooden sculptures and plaques, earthy burlap compositions, painted “sky ceilings” and vibrant acrylic paintings invoking memories of Matisse and Picasso.And while the sensuous seclusion of the rooms provides some guests with the perfect excuse for lolling away the day on the balcony, others head out to partake in the many activities on offer; yoga, snorkeling, scuba diving, tennis, sunset sailing, sea kayaking or jungle biking, hiking and bird-watching among the ruins of an 18th century colonial plantation. ... more less
