WOW!!!! I can honestly say that all these negative bad reviews are 100% rubbish!! I booked this resort for my honeymoon and some of the comments made on trip advisor left me regretting my choice.
I can now laugh at these comments because they are simply not true!!
Travelling to the resort - I took a helicopter when we arrived as it was our honeymoon which I booked through our travel agent (£250) this took 12-15 minutes followed by a 10 min cab. Well worth the spend. When we left we got a cab, which takes 90 minutes, definitely worth doing as you see some amazing sites. I am one of the worst persons for travel sickness - but this journey did not leave me feeling sick. St Lucia is a developing country so yes the roads are not the best but the landscape certainly makes up for it.
Resort - Beautiful, natural surroundings. By no means 5 star ritz appeal however superb value for money and a solid 4 star. Rooms very very clean and well air conditioned. Gardens and surroundings well maintained. Beach and pool etc constantly cleaned and well kept.
Food - three restaurants to choose from. A themed buffet every night ranging from mexican, Indian to local cuisine. I can honestly say the food is up there with the best. An Italian which is delicious and then the waterside grill, which sits on top of the sea, simply amazing.
Service - 10/10 very friendly polite and well mannered staff. Regardless of whether you tip or not they are incredibly attentive. Your glass is never empty and the bar staff are a good laugh.
I cannot recommend this resort enough. It deserves more credit than all these negative comments.
