Let's face it, if you're booking a reservation for a place called Hotel Chocolat, you've already got high expectations. My husband, teen-aged daughter and I spent six luxurious nights last week in St. Lucia at Hotel Chocolat. We were greeted in the open-air main house where the restaurant, bar, concierge and front desk are situated and invited to each select... More

It had been a desire of mine to go to this hotel for a few years, as I love the chocolates! We decided to go for a few days to celebrate our Ruby Wedding Anniversary, and we were not disappointed. We were in a Luxe Lodge and it was fantastic - airy and spacious, and the provision of the chocolate... More

This is an unusual boutique hotel, with its admirable and interesting cocoa business, and is highly recommended but for a max 2/3 nights. The view of the Pitons on arrival is beyond stunning and it has been designed to make the most of it. However, you can become a bit claustrophobic and bored of it as the reception is in... More

We live in Cheltenham UK just 10 minutes from a Hotel Chocolat store, so we were keen to visit the hotel, plantation and tour in St Lucia. They really do make a premium product, which we enjoy. We booked lunch and a tour after while in the UK. It was a good hour plus drive to get there from Marigot... More

I can not say enough wonderful things about Boucan. My husband and I spent a week at Boucan and neither of us wanted to leave. I will openly admit, when I initially booked our rooms, I was a little hesitant due to the "open air" concept (I am NOT an "outdoors" person and the thought of potentially sharing our room... More

Loved our stay here. Lux lodge #8 had the most beautiful view of the piton-miss galling asleep and waking up to it. Breakfast was very good, lunch/dinner selection was pretty good as well. Shuttle and boat trip to the beach every day is very convenient and not a hustle at all. Certainly one of the most beautiful destinations in the... More

We drove for an hour to have lunch and it was worth the trip. The dinner menu looked better, but since the Piton is not illuminated (?) you would miss the view. The menu was not gimmicky with chocolate or carob nibs. It all worked well. We should have left room for the pud, as we ended up sharing one.... More
