After a lengthy transfer (2 hrs) from airport we knew a great deal about St Lucia on our first visit. Our driver welcomed and educated us in an entertaining and friendly way. On arrival at the Hotel which I prefer to describe as a Club we were not sure what to expect. Our welcome was warm and friendly and the...

We stayed at East Winds five years ago and found it to be perfect, incredibly it's now even better! When you arrive at East Winds you get a genuine welcome and straight away feel at home. We stayed in room 15, a beautiful semi-detached cottage overlooking the gardens but just a short walk (5 minutes) down to the beach, restaurant,...

This was our first experience of an all inclusive resort holiday and we were unsure it would suit us. However it didn't take long for us to find we were very happy to stay and enjoy all East Winds has to offer. The hotel is expensive and facilities are limited, reflecting its size. Our cottage-the cheapest room was very nice...

We have just returned from our 6th visit to East Winds, and as usual have had a fantastic and relaxing time. If you wish to go somewhere that is away from the hustle and bustle of day to day life, then this is the hotel to go. You can do as little or as much as you like, it is...

We stayed for a week in Feb in a beach front cottage which from memory used to be a cottage belonging to the Horlicks family, number 28. The views were excellent and we virtually walked on to the beach. The cottage itself was very comfortable with a beautiful recently refurbished bathroom. All meals were to a very high standard with...

Recommend highly. From our initial email conversations with Glynda and Simeon to the outstanding reception/bar/wait service that Lucinda, Lily, Septima, Sylvia, Kirby, Windel, Haig, and Jervin provided, we couldnt have been more pleasantly surprised by the high level of attentiveness and friendliness of all of the staff - even those who we didnt know by name.

Hello KerenHaugh Wow! What a great review. Even more than the delight at reading the review is the happiness we all feel as a team when a guest has a great holiday, enjoys lovely food and relaxation, has a few adventures and disconnects from day to day life. That is what East Winds is all about. See you again soon,...

As 99.99% of other reviewers note, East Winds is perfection. The setting is idyllic, lovely cottages nestled in the beautiful and tranquil gardens, the only noise the song of the many birds. Paths wind down towards the restaurant and beach, staff greet you with a friendly hello, and little lizards scuttle out of the way. The vibe is relaxed. And...

Yes, our eleventh time, and we've already booked our next holiday at this wonderful place. Why? Because of the staff - and we will NOT fall for the temptation to mention any names, simply because each and every one is part of the whole East Winds Experience. Smiles and friendliness, service and attention in abundance! Meals, whether at breakfast time,...

I seem to be in the minority when it comes to my memories of the food at East Winds. I will explain why my review is only a 3. Breakfast. Unimaginative, repetitive and uninspired. Eggs, baked beans burnt bacon everyday. Croissants stale and glutinous. Lunch, make sure you get there at opening or on non BBQ days the food is...
