Wow! A room on 2 floors ( upgraded to a Hilltop Dream Suite ) the whole experience is sooooo different ! Went as part of a dual centre Peak to Beach Package - you are most definitely in the Peaks here with uninterrupted views of the Pitons. We were ' all inclusive' and for 3 nights. It was a great...

My wife and I just spent 10 days at Ladera for our honeymoon in St. Lucia and had a great experience. We booked a Petit Piton room but were upgraded to a Gros Piton. For the two of us, this was plenty of space. I’m sure the higher-priced suites are larger and nicer but, if you can’t afford more than... More

My husband and I stayed at Ladera for part of our honeymoon in August 2011. To say it was amazing is an undrstatement. We decided to do the Peak to Beach package which is very much worth the money. When we got to ladera a bottle of champagne was waiting in an upgrated room. The room was beautiful, we had... More

My wife and I have just come back from our honeymoon in St Lucia, where we stayed at the Ladera resort. It was exceptional stay and exceeded all of our expectations, the staff were very attentive and friendly and catered to our every need.

Ladera isn't like anything you've ever experienced. The open fourth wall concept is brilliant, views are beyond what I can describe (especially in the morning and at sunset), the food was exquisite (and this is from a New Yorker who eats at high-end restaurants regularly), and the staff is incredibly kind and helpful. The only real knock on the place... More

Let me say first "Thank God I didn't go through booking with this Motel." I call it a Motel because it doesn't hold up to any standards of a resort, or a hotel at best. When researching a place for my honeymoon, I couldn't help but see the pictures of this Motel and see what a beautiful view it has.... More

We are very disappointed to hear about your comment. The package you are referring to was indeed not available through Orbitz. The employee who mis-informed you was counseled on this matter. We are sorry to receive this rating considering you did not stay at Ladera. Thank you for your feedback. Ermin More

First of all I'd like to say this was one of the most beautiful views and rooms I've ever had. I've traveled to over 45 countries and stayed in some of the best, and worst, places.....Ladera's view and room (uniqueness and beauty) were world class.

Our in room pool had direct sunlight, which made it very enjoyable. There really was no reason to leave your room. The staff was very professional, friendly and accomodating.

My husband and I just returned from a short, 4 night stay at Ladera where we got married.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ladera is the pioneer of the open air three-walled concept in St. Lucia and has since been distinguished by a wide range of international publications, awards and accolades from Conde Nast Traveler, Travel + Leisure, Forbes Life Caribbean Travel and Life, Brides Magazine and countless others. Ladera was once part of Rabot Estate, one of Soufriere's oldest plantations, which still borders the resort. In the late 1960's a parcel of land was sold and developed into a small cluster of condominiums and christened Dasheene, named after the thousands of large, glossy-leafed dasheen plants (also known as elephant ears) harvested on the site. In 1982 it was transformed into a unique resort and changed hands a number of times before emerging as Ladera under the current private ownership. The mission has always been to offer an unparalleled guest experience that is quintessentially Saint Lucian, one that embraces the magnificent views and offers harmony with the surrounding natural beauty and rich bounty of the island. Today, that commitment to sumptuous authenticity is evident in everything from the innovative renderings of fresh local dishes at Dasheene restaurant, to the use of Caribbean timbers, stone and tile work used in the guestrooms and public areas. Yet it shines through most effectively with warm and welcoming Saint Lucian staff. ... more   less
