I was very impressed Anse Chastanet welcomed & catered for non residents so well. Whilst my husband did the jungle biking, I had a fabulous spa treatment at the resort's spa. Access is directly from the beach at the 'non-resident' end. If you want a fab massage, ask for Theo. She was excellent & I was so relaxed, I felt I was floating out of the door.
The jungle biking unfortunately disappointed my husband who is a serious cyclist. The trail options weren't explained properly & by the time he worked out there was a more advanced trail, he was told to return as there was a 3.30pm time limit. Frustratingly, the booking staff said had we arrived 20 minutes earlier, he could have started earlier & enjoyed longer on the trails instead of hanging around until the next time slot. Would have been amazing had she enabled him to start sooner.
Downside at Anse Castanet:- with the exception of the staff at the spa who were fab, most other staff weren't as friendly or helpful as they might have been.
On the plus side we both enjoyed the snorkelling & a very nice light lunch in the restaurant. I didn't mind paying for the beach chairs, the snorkel & a locker as we were delighted we could call in & use their facilities.
Tip 1:- the drive to the resort from Soufriere even in a jeep is only for very confident drivers. Its surface is awful; bumpy, potholed & narrow. Take a taxi or get a water taxi from Soufriere.
Tip 2 :- take plenty of mosquito repellent. Its a beautiful place but the natural "jungle" environment at Anse Castanet has its fair share of mosquitos. Be warned
