“Great Spot for large group”
Reviewed January 17, 2011

Large extended family stayed at Villa Cleopatra Jan 2011 to celebrate a special birthday. We had the whole villa which included 3 separate rental units. It is located on a hill overlooking the bay, great views and wonderful breezes. The units are very clean, the housekeeper Shelly is fantastic, the best feature of the villa's she is a real sweetheart and our group of 15 loved her and would have liked to bring her home with us. There were a number of issues with the villa but the manager Robert was quick to deal with issues, like air conditioning not working in one of the units, he got us a full size coffee pot when we requested it. The water is a bit of a challenge, often no hot water and when more than one person is showering quite the variation in temperature. The bedrooms are air conditioned but the main rooms were not, not an issue but we did have 2 people on the pull out beds in the rooms with no air, it did not seem to bother them. The kitchen is very large, actually the unit is much bigger than it looks in pictures, there was plenty of room for out group. You are required to provide your own toilet paper, soap, dish soap, in my opinion they should be provided for the price you pay, it was a nuisance. The pool was on the smaller size but relatively clean and very refreshing, loved the outdoor shower, a few more loungers would be great. The town of Rodney bay is close by, with lots of grocery stores, we liked the new grocery store at the mall, more like home. The town itself is not clean, people just throw their trash at the side of the road and we did see lots of rats running around. Food is expensive in St Lucia, we liked the restaurants at the Marina the best, the Starfish was fantastic, no rats in this area much cleaner. The beach at Pigeon Island was our favorite, cheaper to rent chairs, not crowded at all. The St Lucian people are wonderful and friendly

My husband and I went to St Lucia in May of 2004.The Island iself is just stunning as far as scenery goes,the pitons are a must see.We stayed in the Rodney bay area,very nice studio apt that was part of Villa Cleopatra.It was small but had exellent managment as well as a nice small swimming pool,within walking distace to grocery store ect...My husband and I love to dive as well as snorkel and I have to say I was a little dissapointed in the under water area of the northern part of the island,it was very dirty,I mean diapers on the bottom of the bay other trash to numerous to mention,and this we just saw snorkeling!The beaches were nice but not as good as st john in the USVI the beaches there are tops.The other drw back was the beach peddlers they were too much,I feel like we were bothered all the time .One guy even so much as came over to us and had the gaul to say to me I know your not sleeping and tried to sell us a conch shell.We did go on 1 two tank boat dive while we were there it was pretty nice we did a drift dive around some underwater seamounts,and it included pickup from hotel and a nice lunch.driving in st lucia is a little hairy espesilly driving to the other end of island where the famous pitons are hair pin turns no guard rails ect... But very beautiful.If any of you are familiar with the white mountains of Nh driving from one end of st lucia to the other is allot like that but with views of the sea.one of the beaches that was clean and gin clear was at the anse chastenet resort,but the road to get there was rougher then a cob not for the faint of heart.overall though like I said beautiful island just a few drawbacks.Someday Im sure we will go back after we do some more exploring of other islands.
