“A quaint stay...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

While at the Still Beach House recently there were improvements being made to Room 5, the redone shower etc. is lovely. There's still work to be done but they are improving. The property is located on the Beach and I could hear the waves lapping against the shoreline from my room. The proximity to the town is excellent and one can easily get around. The Manager, David was very helpful in providing tips and information.

Room Tip: Room No. 3 is absolutely the one to choose

I still regret every moment of our time at the Still Beach. On arrival we heard people saying " the people they come" so we made our way down the stairs. There is no reception, just the maid and the security man to meet us. Thomas is the guy who is going to look after us we were told. On entering our accomodation the room was very dark. We opened the curtains to be greated by a view of a boarded up window. Then opened the other set of curtains to wooden slats and mossie nets. We had a 4 poster bed. This seemed to take up most of the space in the room it looked a bit silly. This did have mossie nets draped around the posts. We also had a large fridge in the room. Our self catering items were 2 cups 2 plates 2 forks one sharp knife and a small wooden spoon along with a toaster and kettle. The airconditioning was fairly good in the room. You need this in St Lucia. We also asked about the WIFI you get in the room and the maid grunted and pointed to the box on our terrace. All open with wires exposed. Our balcony area was ok and the view is the only thing that has a wow factor. Our WIFI was not working from the moment we arrived. We spoke to Thomas who told us it should be fixed tomorrow. The bathroom was fun, we could not have a warm shower as when you put the hot and then mix with cold. The cold takes over. It was too hot to use alone without cold. We headed down for breakfast. There is no set time for breakfast. It seemed that we got breakfast once the lady had finished her cleaning duties thats when breakfast seemed to happen. Once being told we could sit. A rather rude lady said what would you like to drink? We both said coffee.... we were told sorry no coffee. We have tea... Rose or Ginger. "what would you like for breakfast?" we say what do you have? Eggs... Ok we will have eggs!! The eggs arrived what seemed like hours later and what is put before us.... Scrambled eggs and lettuce. We got this pretty much most days with random fruit and bread. We were meant to be on a romantic vacation and this turned out to be a nightmare. We were told on day three that the phone line is down and this is why the wifi is not working. We are supposed to be staying for 11 nights and by day 3 we had had enough. Day4 we receive a duvet change. We came back to the room and could smell a really strong smell, this smell was coming from the new duvet. It was a strong smell of cooking, like the sheets had been stored in the spices cupboard. We found a resort next to the still beach "the humming bird" thank god for this place. There is a restuarant there a swimming pool a bar and wifi. We met the owner who welcomed us to use the swimming pool and wifi. You cannot really use the beach as there is constantly young lads who intimidate you. We booked into another resort at the top of the island. We endured 5 days of this and I am writing this to make sure that you DO NO STAY here or even worse book the wedding package/honeymoon!

Room Tip: Only tip is do not stay here

First off being an Islander I'm very familiar with the island living. I say this because I don't want anyone to think this is a spoil American wanting behond. We spent 2nights & 3 days (July 2012) at the Still I regreted every minute of it. We call the Onwer David to confirm our reservation the day before because family/friends wasn't aware the Still was still open. We got David which he promise to call back but he never did (hint to run). We checked in to a nasty bathroom (pic's posted), no iron which the staff call David to bring one David promise he would but we never got it grant it this request was made mid day. My boyfriend and I had dinner reservation for 8pm and didn't know how we was coming to look appropriate without press clothes. Since this is only a 5 room hotel we walked around to see if other guests had an Iron but we only from one of the guest sitting by the bar upset because their toilet was over flowing ang since the Staff ALL leaves at 4pm and David is no where to be found she and kids couldn't use the toilet. Thank God for the Humming Bird Hotel next door that borrowed us an Iron (at no charrge) and they also borrow us a plug converter because the Still couldn't accommodate USA plugs. The biggest problem I had is, none of the rooms had telepones. There is one phone at the Still and it's in the Staff area which they ALL leaves at 4pm. It's very unsafe to have guest staying at your hotel and they do not have access to a phone, very very unsafe. Oh but wait we did see a secruity guard on site which of course advise us he couldn't do anything for us. When we asked him to call the Owner David, he said he couldn't and that he was in Castries (which is an hour drive). The menu was only chicken w/chow mein or fish w/chow mein but please eat before 4pm. Once again Thank God for the Humming Bird next door who is fully staff and stop serving dinner at 10pm with choices on their menu. For only a 5 rooms motel (yep it shouldn't be class as a beach house or hotel) the staff should have a better handle on the up-keep of the rooms. But one of the staff Shera was really nice. People pay alot of money to come and enjoy themselves they should get better service.

We stayed and our friends next door in the 2 single rooms for 17 nights. The reviews on trip advisor had us all very worried. Our arrival was nothing short of amazing, our rooms were spotless and waiting for us. Full of flowers and fruit. Swan towels and the whole bit. Welcome cocktail, orientation to the locals and what a meal! Like every restaurant in Soufriere, the meals are over priced for what you get. The breakfasts every morning were spectacular and always more than enough to eat. The girls were always eager to bring us our favorite juices and fruits and coffee as soon as we sat down. Essentially we became close friends and they were always eager to hear of our adventures when we came home at the end of the day.
We even fell in love with the night security guard!
The view is so breathtaking it will forever be in my mind. The flowers, the birds, even the parking lot is georgeous!
We are divers and we were guided to Chester next door. We lets put it this way, we had planned to do 10 dives. We ended up doing 24! Now that is a perfect dive operator.
The owner of the Still Beach House invited us up to the Still Plantaion. We came home with our pockets and bags bulging with fruit and memories.
There could not be a more pleasant sleep than on a King size 4 poster bed. Crisp clean fresh linens every 3 days. The ocean soothing you to sleep everynight.
To sum it all up. Its all about what you need. We all live a pretty sweet life at home. If you need high end, then this is not the place for you. Go to a 5 star all inclusive and pay for it. Its more than enough for just about everyone else. The still Beach House far exceeded our expectations. Take my advice, go for it.The charm of the Still Beach will grow on you and you'll be writing the next review.

It's not a resort and should not be thought of as a resort. They do not have a tour desk, posh toiletries, cozy lounge chairs, private beach etc. It is simply a B&B. With a bonus gorgeous view and local beach in front. If you need posh resort comforts this place is not for you. If you need a very comfortable bed, a balcony with a super view, and decent, good breakfast, most importantly a clean room - those 4 things shall be granted to you. Service, like alot of St.Lucians, they are very shy you give them a smile, and ask nicely. They then will trust you and treat you great. At the price per night, I consider the view worth that! We spent hours just staring at those beautiful pitons. Next door is a delicious place for dinner, great view, cozy place. Couple great places in town follow boulevard to opposite side of bay and you will find great local food for lunch. Down the hill is a taxi meeting place. Taxi's will take you everywhere, including those fancy hotel restaurants if you want to splurge. Enjoy and relax you're on vacation,

We stayed the first few days at the Jalousie Plantation, a 6 star resort not far from Soufriere, fantastic, but also wanted some time in town to see the real St Lucia.
When we arrived it looked a little run down and a bit of a shock after what we had come from, but when you get used to it, it’s a nice little hotel. The staff are nice and friendly and the room was clean enough and it did what we wanted, be a base at a low cost in town.
There are no sun beds and you can’t use the beach outside due to it being where the local lads congregate. We found that there is another resort about a 2 mile walk away up the hill where you can use their beach for free, but take your own towels as they charge 5usD for each rent, took us 35 mins.
Food was not good, breakfast is ok but very limited, and there was not much on the menu, when we were there, it was all off! But there is another hotel next door where the food is ok. All in all, it’s a good base in town. Would I go again..Yes.

We were there for a week between Christmas and Newyears and had a great time. Our bed was big and comfortable, when we arrived there where fresh flowers everywhere, nice touch. Because we arrived on Christmas day and everything was closed they had arranged to bring us dinner in our room without us even asking, what great customer service!! The owner David was very friendly and was there almost very morning and always stopped by our table at breakfast to say hello. Breakfast was great, no menu but always a good hot meal with a couple of choices of eggs, french toast etc. and fresh jucie everyday. Our balcony had the greatest view of the bay and Petite Piton, we never knew what to expect when we went out, there where sail boats, tall ships, even a cruise ship one night. Location could not be beat, we could walk to town in just a few minutes, which included Diamond Waterfall, right next door was the Hummingbird Resort, which had a nice pool and restaurant , and just around the corner or up the hill was Anse Chastanet beach and Resort and Jade Mountain Resort. We walked to Jade Mountain (which was amazing) but it was a pretty brutal walk with steep inclines, but you could take a water taxi which would me faster and easier. We did have "Purgy" take us to Jalousie Resort by boat later in the week and we had a great time, very friendly guy who is always easy to find at the beach house. All in all we had a great week, we did have a few hot water issues but who needs a hot shower when its 100 degrees anyway!! We found the staff very friendly and helpful, they are not chatty but if you ask they are more than happy to help with any questions or requests, Rebecca was our go to girl and did a great job. Just remember this is a beach house, not an all inclusive, if that's what you are looking for you need to go to the North end of the Island, but if you want a fantastic view, friendly staff, and see the "real" Island of St. Lucia this was the perfect place to stay.
