I stayed at Boucan by Hotel Chocolat for six nights and can definitely recommend it if you are looking for a beautiful place to relax.
I was in a standard pod and was really impressed with everything from the quality of the bed and linen to the beautiful outdoor shower, REN toiletries, ipod dock with pre-loaded hotel playlists and generally good wifi coverage.
The views are outstanding from the hotel restaurant and pool area and if, like me, you are the type of person who loves to listen to music and soak up the atmosphere, you'll have found your paradise as you look out over the lush landscape to the majestic Piton.
I have to disagree with one of the previous reviewers - I found the service to be of a really excellent standard. Definitely not 'five star stuffy' if that's what you are looking for, but friendly and approachable. A special thank you to Inalee at the pool area for taking care of me as a solo guest - making sure I was enjoying my stay and giving me lots of interesting facts about this beautiful island.
The food was seriously good - don't be deterred by the inclusion of chocolate in the menu, as this doesn't have to mean 'sweet and sickly' - it's used very creatively and everything I tried over the space of my break was of the very highest quality. The breakfasts were fist class, with beautiful fruit platters, fresh smoothies, oatmeal and local honey, omelettes and bacon, not to mention the most delicious home made bread and jelly with chocolate 'smudge'.
I will definitely return to Boucan by Hotel Chocolat. From the moment I was picked up the airport, handed a mint-scented, iced hand towel and a cold drink I knew this was going to be special and it didn't disappoint.
