Took my 74 year old mom and stayed at the Downtown Hotel for less than $80 a night.
There was no hot water the first few days, the fridge didn't work, a leg of the bed collapsed, and the town side is quite noisy at night. but these problems were quickly solved and we really enjoyed our stay. Once we learned to shut the doors formly at night to keep out the tiny, loud mosquitos, we slept well.
We ate at the Hummingbird and they invited us to hang out at their pool. Gorgeous location but beach was a bit lacking. Good snorking until you get out a little farther and see the garbage (tires, can) on the ocean floor.
That was the part that bothered us about Soufriere was the garbage in the streets and riverbed. The people are very friendly, helpful and good-matured despite tough economic times, especially the men.
Soufrier is a great location to take day trips from. We were interested in a bargain vacation and were able to take buses (steps form the hotel) to several nearby attractions.
We had a great time. Gorgeous, lush, warm island. We had clean friendly accomodations and were quite happy to save a few bucks.
