“Seaweed for miles”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

We didn't even get to go in the beach. There was so much seaweed the entire week. The staff tried collecting as much of it as they could with bulldozers but it there was a continuous backwash of seaweed for days. We look forward to the beach and we did not even get to go near it.

“St.Lucia beaches”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

Not disappointed. Not a lover of beaches. St. Lucia through no fault of their own, are experiencing seaweed problems at this time and are doing what they can to reduce it. All beaches are narrow, as in maybe 2-3metres, or rocky, not exactly wonderfully sandy shores. First class hotels, pools, make up for this

The Atlantic beaches are fine. The Caribbean coast is calmer and clearer but there is not much in it

“Fantastic”

Loved sandy beach, close to Coconut Bay Hotel, Vieux Fort, generally used by the locals. Food and drink sold on the beach, great family day out.
