We have been lucky enough to have stayed at Bel Jou for three to four weeks at a time, over the past nine years. We spent a wonderful time there end of May into June but I fear it will have been our last trip. It is everything we don't look for in a hotel... Let me explain. We love... More

Bel Jou or Delightful Day hotel reflect its positives, but it has to be judged alongside its physical restrictions due to its position high up on a hillside overlooking the Caribbean Sea, airport and cemetery. The hotel and grounds are kept spotless with close scrutiny of the details.Fogging is experienced, once a week on Wednesdays between 5.30pm to 6.30pm, when... More

Just returned from the Bel Jou hotel in St Lucia. A great pity that this hotel was sold by Saga. I had been twice before and the hotel is not the same as it was although it is difficult to pinpoint differences. The biggest change is in the courtesy bus services , these do not run as frequently as before... More

I have recently returned from a 2 week stay at the Bel Jou . As stated in other reviews the hotel has recently changed hands and many changes have been implemented . Due to the perseverance of the Saga guests some of these were reinstated. In spite of these inconveniences ( especially the pool ), thanks to the superb staff... More
