We visited St. Lucia and the Villa Beach Cottages this year for the first time. The trip did not disappoint and our expectations were exceeded!
We were welcomed at the airport by our driver, Claudius. As he drove us to the Villas, he pointed out sites and gave us tidbits about the island. On the drive, we passed by Claudius' sister, Fenicia (sp?), who was purchasing food for her local restaurant, and we made plans to eat there the following day (which was an incredible meal!). We would highly recommend a trip to her restaurant if you are looking for a delicious St. Lucian meal.
From the moment that we arrived at the Villas, we were treated wonderfully by all the staff. We stayed in Villa 5 and the room was superb! The room was super clean and very nicely decorated. I especially liked the art by Adelaide Rice, a longtime visitor to the Villas, and the namesake of the room. The view from the Villa was incredible - it included a view of the hammock, palm trees and the ocean.
Olivia, Nadia & Neva in reception are very helpful in booking reservations and providing recommendations on things to do and places to go. They truly enhanced our visit to the island.
We are planning a wedding at the Villas in March 2013 and I am so excited for our return trip. Olivia, Nadia and Neva have been so helpful with the booking arrangements for our family. In addition, Susan, the wedding planner, has been phenomenal. All of her recommendations for us have been spot on. She is working hard to make sure that our special day is exactly how we want it.
We are looking forward to planning many more trips to the Villas in the years to come!
