I found the key to enjoying the experience was managing expectations. This is a small hotel with limited amenities and service, quite unlike many Caribbean all-inclusives. The general atmosphere while I visited was quiet. A good place to unwind with a book or to enjoy conversation with fellow guests. The grounds cover a small hillside area, I did several circuits...

This was our second stay at the excellent Saga Bel Vue hotel on the beautiful Caribbean island of St Lucia. The wonderful welcome we received from the staff, many of whom had become friends during our first visit, meant that it really did feel like returning home. The hotel is not too big and thus has a friendlier ambience than... More

What a welcome back, after opting to take the helicopter transfer ( which we thoroughly recommend ), we arrived at the Bel Jou to a very warm welcome from Camilla, Navin and of course Elizabeth, our saga rep and friend. Very pleased to see that the smoking area has been moved away from the restaurant entrance , and daily notice... More

We have just had the most wonderful 4 week stay at the Bel Jou over Christmas and New Year. The hotel is situated at the top of a hill with lovely views over Castries and for anyone not enjoying the numerous steps around the hotel grounds the 4rd or 3rd floors are excellent and we got around without any great...

Just returned from a fabulous 4 weeks in the Bel Jou. This was our first visit and find it incredible that anyone could find fault with it. Yes, it is in a hilly position and there are several steps around the hotel but this is made abundantly clear in the brochure and the fantastic views from the hotel more than... More

I travelled to St Lucia with a large group of friends from U3A Spalding. I had a thoroughly welcoming and relaxing break in beautiful surroundings. The whole ethos of the hotel is relaxed, welcoming, friendly and fun. I enjoyed the included trips and the extra trip to the Beautiful South. The Saga rep, Elizabeth, works extremely hard to include everyone... More

We wanted to stay somewhere special to mark our 25th wedding anniversary and the Bel Jou did not disappoint! We had excellent, friendly service from all the staff, especially Carlyn Benjamin (Reception) who my family had contacted to arrange a surprise meal out for us for our anniversary (the Coal Pot - lovely place!). Our room was large and spacious,... More
