We stayed for the final 4 nights of our 2 week holiday and can safely say it was a great decision. We stayed in one of the Lux Lodges and it was both very spacious and particularly well appointed. I must mention that the room has simply one of the best showers either of us have ever experienced, it was not only massive but also semi open to the rainforest behind. The plantation style of hotel isn't uncommon but the fact it was a very active plantation was superb. The hotel runs two tours called "tree to bean" and also "bean to bar", but we did a combined tour; "tree to bar" and it was excellent. The tour guide is a chap called Cuthbert and he is one of the most enthusiastic and likeable people you will ever meet, which is a big part of what makes the tour so enjoyable. Unlike many hotels, which have the restaurant as a feature of the hotel, it's rather the other way round at Hotel Chocolat. As a consequence the guest areas aren't particularly big, but the pool is a decent size, there is a dedicated guest bar and the grounds are lovely, so you couldn't ask for much more. As I mentioned, the restaurant is the main focus of the hotel and it is with good reason, it's phenomenal. We were both unsure as to how the incorporation of the cocoa in all the food would work out, but I can say without a doubt, it works exceptionally well. We had lunch and dinner twice at Boucan and both times we came away without being able to think of a single thing we didn't love about the meal. The bar is also part of the cocoa craze and that too works well, however it does sell non-cocoa drinks, which was a relief. In addition to the excellent food and accommodation, the staff are superb, all very friendly and extremely helpful. All in all we can't recommend Hotel Chocolat highly enough, but obviously with only having stayed a short period of time it's hard to say exactly how a longer stay would be, however I'd be happy to find out.
