St Lucian by Rex

We were trying to book this hotel for November, but have been told today that it is now closed for refurb - but to try next week to book! Anyone know the score here - or an alternate hotel in St Lucia??

Can't help re the refurb.

For alternatives look at the Coco Palm which is very close to the Rex but 5 mins walk from the beachfront and probably a bit cheaper. The Bay Gardens Beach Resort is beachfront, also nearby and a notch up in quality and price from the Rex. But they do have a vg offer on for November worth having a look at

Also would recommend Bay Gardens Beach Resort has the best alternative if you want to be on Reduit Beach where the St. Lucian is located. There's also the newer Royal St. Lucian, a Rex resort.

Just curious...what do you like to do on vacation? If people know what you enjoy they can give you suggestions that will put you in the part of the island that will most suit your vacation activities. ;~>

husband dives, I snorkle a bit, but mostly relaxing. We are going to Jalousie from 30 November, so just wanted a 'cheaper' week before we went there. Also, do you know whether it is definately Henawarra airport for both North & South?

Thanks for your help x

If you are flying direct from UK - then yes, it is UVF (Hewanorra) airport for the whole island. very few flights come into SLU (George F L Charles Airport) in the north any more - it is mostly only regional flights via LIAT or private flights.

You can definitely find much less expensive resorts in the Rodney Bay area - Bay Gardens Beach Resort is great and beachfron if that matters. Coco Palm is one of our favorites - and about a 5 minute walk to the beach, but closer to the restaurants and bars and casino than BGBR. For even less money, consider Bay Gardens Inn or Bay Gardens Hotel. A bit outside the main village entertainment area (a very few more minutes wal) but you can use all the facilities at BGBR and they run a shuttle a few times a day.

Harmony Suites, Gingery Lily, Tuxedo Villas, etc are all great, more budget friendly options too. And there is always the Royal by Rex, right next door to the St. Lucian. More expensive than the St. Lucian, but nice too.

Enjoy!
