I had just finished sailing the ARC and wanted to escape the 'sanitized' Rodney Bay environment, and wasn't disappointed in having chosen to stay at Soufrière.
Soufrière, once the capital of St Lucia, is a small, friendly town, and you soon become part of it.
If you really want a St Lucian experience away from the tourist resorts then this is the place, and the Downtown Hotel is where to stay.
It is in the heart of the town on the top floors of a small shopping centre. Clean, simple, spacious, air-cond. rooms with balcony and free wi-fi access; rooms either overlook the town square and cathedral (closed at the moment) or the sea and the Pitons, which I chose.
I hardly ever used the air cond, preferring to leave the balcony door open.
Friendly and professional service from Charlma, with information on the town and surrounding attractions: restaurants, bars, sulphur springs, trails, estates, beaches, pitons, mineral baths, waterfalls.
A truly enjoyable visit, and made to feel very much at home
