The staff throughout the resort were very nice and pleasant to deal with, save the restaurant staff. They seemed somewhat inconvenienced when you walked in. Now, I will say that their uniforms were not only out dated, they looked to be as hot, confining and uncomfortable as one can imagine. This is an island resort in the middle of the Caribbean for goodness sake! If this is a requirement of the owners, then they need a lesson in fashion! As far as the food goes, I highly recommend on of the restaurants at Sugar Beach! For one, the tropical fruit juice served at breakfast wasn't watered down as it was at Dasheene and was naturally sweet; it didn't need the simple syrup given to us at Dasheene.
We had two meals at SB and it was amazing.
Don't get me wrong; the views at Dasheene were amazing! The atmosphere, however, was/is lacking tremendously. Dasheene/Ladera need to incorporate a bit of A/C throughout the complex. Every now and then a dry, cool place is refreshing in an area such as st. Lucia.
