I am very glad I chose this hotel and did not go to a resort.
It is in a beautiful location right on the beach with a view over the Pitons and just on the edge of Soufriere (which is really a village.)
The room was simple and clean with a good private balcony. Breakfast was nicely served, even if the cutlery did not always form a matching set (this is the Caribbean. St Lucia is a poor country. This is authentic.)
The staff were lovely, and kind and helpful. The locals used the beach. It is their beach. They were friendly and are nice people. They do not have easy lives. We have so much more, but we have lost something as well. Porgy organised the trips and acted as my guide. The car was owned by his uncle and driven by his cousin. He took me to the rain forest where he picked a fresh coconut and grapefruit from the trees for me and introduced me to a lovely old man who had nothing, but who had looked after him when he was a child.
The hotel is five minutes walk from Soufriere where there are chickens in the street and authentic Caribbean restaurants. Some days there is a choice of fruit juice. Other days there is not.
If you want a resort with imported sand and pampered, pristine luxury, isolated from the locals, then this hotel is not for you. I wanted a small, simple hotel in a good location away from the manufactured artificiality. This was a very good choice.
