“Beautiful,relaxing and 5 star service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

Our family thoroughly enjoyed everything about our trip to St. Lucia. The villa was absolutely beautiful!! the staff was amazing and made our stay there truly special. Perle,Denver,Oshi,& Julio were so helpful for assisting us with making plans, recommending places to see & eat. And Julio's cooking was delicious!! If we ever make it back I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else! Thank you C'est La Vie staff! We miss you!

It was a wonderful experience. The villa is beautiful with a huge garden, swimming pool, and especially with great service. Butler Oshi provides unearthly service, the chef cooks great goodness. Nothing is impossible. Amazing relax and experience. One of the finest hotels in the Caribbean.

The service, atmosphere and beautiful setting all come together to make this a real treat. We felt that we were in the lap of luxury. We stayed in the apartment and couldn't fault it. This is a fantastic place and the staff are excellent. Really handy for exploring Rodney Bay, Pigeon Island and the nearby beaches. Nothing in St Lucia is far away and the whole island is stunningly beautiful.

We were two families with 5 young children and our stay at C'est la Vie couldn't have been better. The villa itself is of a very high standard and the staff even exceed this level. They will look after everything you need and there is nothing to do but relax and enjoy your time. The chef prepared all but one of our meals (including a picnic) and his cooking was fantastic. He catered to the kids extremely well also. We would happily return.

This was our second trip to St. Lucia and to C'est la Vie - we loved it the first time and planned our return trip almost immediately. This Villa served as our base for my daughter's wedding - and renewal of my wife's and my vows for our 25th wedding anniversary. We hosted the rehearsal dinner with 29 guests at the Villa - the staff was outstanding in planning everything - from meals to seating arrangements to special requests. Then, later in the week, we held a smaller more intimate gathering in the garden - to renew our vows. Again, the setting was beautiful, the staff was extremely attentive and accommodating, and took a sincere personal interest in our family experience! The villa is close to Jetskiing, zip lining through the rain forest, catamaran sails to scenic areas, snorkeling - the wedding guests did them all - and our concierge helped in all the arrangements. Just a fabulous experience!

The villa experience was outstanding! the facilities were great, but the staff was what made this a fantastic vacation. Everyone - from the Butler, to the chef to the personal concierge to the support staff to the maid - were genuinely friendly and anticipated our needs. We cannot say enough about the overall experience. This was like going to a small boutique hotel - but much better. -

We first stayed during a 'scouting' trip for my daughter's wedding. The 5 of us liked it so much we are returning to C'est La Vie with the whole wedding party (10+) for the wedding itself. Just fabulous!
