Great Location.Cozy and warm Great For couples who want to get away from it all...
i felt like we had the place to ourselves almost. U get a free breakfast,just enough to get u going in the morning.The surprising thing is with all that beautiful scenery you think there would be mosquitoes all over the place well let me tell u i'm from New York and hate those flying blood banks i didn't get bit once period..Stay here u won't regret it. The Staff Virgin,Raz, Helen are the best. Good sense of humor professional all the way i am truly going to miss them all

Room Tip: The Begonia Room #5 over looks the pool and has the best view of the beach

Ohhhhhhh my goodness. From the very moment we were dropped off at this hotel, wow, honestly, I felt the peace & was now looking 4ward to the Front Desk service. I am so happy to say that Roslyn, whom I already hsd spoken 2 while preparing 4 my trip in the U.S was so, so sweet on the phone, I knew it would have been a pleasure in finally meeting her.

So happened that she was the one who was there, waiting 2 greet us as we entered the hotel. You talk about personalized service, listen, she checked us in & took us personally 2 our room. When she opened the door, all I could say @ that moment was, "ohhhhhhhhhhh, my goodness", is this 4 real?

Right then & there, I told her, I love, it, I do. She then wishes us a pleasant stay & left. We then started getting comfortable & my boyfriend said, where's the bathroom, I found this door & opened it..........."What"???? I said, babe, come in here, we were so impressed. Listen the bathroom is very, very large. It's literally a walk in bathroom. Space like crazy. You would be so surprised. I've never been in any bathroom that large ever, including the room itself, seriously!

Make sure & request the rooms on the "Upper Level". It's just 2 floors & a total of 11 rooms in the hotel. You definitely would not be disappointed. Next day, we would meet with Roslyn again, who nicely brought our breakfast 2 us downstairs, where we sat by the pool side 2 eat. It's continental & it was perfect 4 us, why?

We wanted 2 make sure we were not overfilled 2 enjoy the other foods out, during the day, which we definitely did. The other days, we would meet the other staff members, "Manager, Virgin, Helen & our maid, Martina. She cleaned our rooms beautifully every day. What a wonderful lady. Thank you so much Martina :).

Helen, Virgin & Roslyn. There is nothing we were in wanting 4 & the service failed. U guys were so pleasant & wonderful 2 us, including all the laughter & smiles you shared with us, we could not have asked 4 a better hotel or better stay anywhere else. Trust & believe, the next time we come 2 St. Lucia, ur Hotel will be the place of rest, hands down.

Folks, as you exit the hotel, u are walking straight across looking @ the beach. The moment you leave the hotel's compond, u are looking @ the beach, straight ahead in a few steps. How awesome was that? My boyfriend said, wow babe, u did ur homework or did u do ur homework? He was extremely satisfied with everything.

The strip 2 everthing is like a 10 2 15 mins walk. Listen, u hold hands as a couple, walk that strip & check out the restaurants & everything u need & want? U'll be in "Love" all over again, "Trust & Believe" :).

"Ginger Lily".......U've won the intimate hotel of peace & class & that is exactly how we feel about u. Thank you so kindly 4 the superb & excellent service you have extended 2 us & 4 making us feel more than "At Home" with ur extreme personalized service. We love u guys & thank you sincerely once again.


Respectfully, Mary & George.....New York City! :) :)

Room Tip: Choose the rooms on the 2nd Floor. Much larger & beautiful :)

I spent 2 nights at this lovely hotel, staff were very polite and the room was spacious aswel as bathroom.
It has a nice size pool with seating area, we stayed when hotel was quiet which was perfect for us.
We had continental breakfast but they also serve cooked food at an extra cost.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who hasn't got children, as there's no supervision by the pool.

Very cosy little hotel, close to the beach and with a very friendly atmosphere. The pool area was lovely and there were a good selection of restaurants close by. The beach was just across the road and was beautiful. The only drawback was the breakfast which was very uninspiring. Staff were fantastic! Highly recommended.

Room Tip: I would ask for a room on the top floor - nicer views!

This place is a great if you are not looking for a mega all inclusive experience. It's immaculately clean, just steps from the beach and several good dining options are close by. You can read the room descriptions in the other reviews but its worth mentioning that the tiled bathrooms are the biggest I have seen in a small hotel and the patio/balcony hammocks are a great touch.Grounds are nicely landscaped with tropical plants and well kept. Pool is small but as previous reviewer notes, you will most likely have it all to yourself. The staff is friendly enough but were slow to respond to our observation that the shower was draining slowly, probably due to blockage by beach sand. Won't recommend if you have young children as there are no activities or babysitting services. This is a pleasant, quiet, boutique type bed and breakfast for independent travelers.

Room Tip: Room #4 walks directly out to the patio and pool area. Shaded from afternoon sun by large tree. Some...

I took my husband to the Ginger Lily for 10 days in January to celebrate his 60th birthday. We are not fans of all-inclusive resorts, and as independent travellers were looking for somewhere small and quiet. The hotel was everything we expected - about a dozen rooms arranged courtyard style in a lovely tropical garden around a small pool. Our room had a high ceiling, was spacious, comfortably furnished and clean. The bathroom had an enormous walk-in shower. The well-equipped kitchen area was a bonus, allowing us to store drinks and food in the good sized fridge. The inclusive breakfast was adequate and cooked items were available at extra charge. We found the hotel perfectly located, only 2 minutes from the beach and with a wide choice of restaurants 5-10 minutes walk away. The only downside for us was the arrival of a family with three very young, noisy, boisterous children, who seemed to take their cue from their equally loud parents, making relaxing on our patio or by the pool impossible when they were around. This was one of the reasons we had steered clear of a large all-inclusive resort! Having read many reviews about the hotel being a haven of peace and tranquilty, we were surprised by the family's presence as the hotel has no facilities for young children, but we subsequently learnt they were relatives/friends of the owner. Speaking of the owners, if they were there during our stay they did not make themselves known, which is surprising for such a small establishment. The reception and other staff were very pleasant and helpful and never failed to say hello. We were grateful for the late check-out which, given that we had to change rooms, was at no extra charge. This obviously helped to end our stay on a high note. Had it not been for the noisy family, my review would without doubt have been "excellent".

Back again with my wife for another totally relaxing stay.
We visited some other hotels on the island on this trip with a view to perhaps staying somewhere else, but can honestly say that for us the Ginger Lily is the best.
All the detailed info. you can read on the other posts.
And special thanks to Virgin for your happy and professional attitude - your help was greatly appreciated ( Phil & Shirley).
ps had to laugh about the review saying the frogs were too loud!
