I have travelled a lot internationally to nice properties like four seasons, fairmonts etc so can do a lot of comparison. For the price it's a mediocre property. The prices of ladera compares to four seasons and fairmont. At least what we paid.
We got an upgrade to room B which is a 3 bedroom suite but ended up using only one bedroom.
Service is good but layed back (island style, as they call it)
Rooms are open air without the fourth wall.
Views are good but have seen better for the price
Wake up to birds chirping and cool breezes
Free wifi in the room
We are vegetarian and they did their best to accommodate us
Prices of food are outrages(eg one cup of tomato soup was US $40.00. Dinner salad and a cheese ravioli is US$90.00
I liked the cabin style look but needs updating
Better be inside the bed once sun goes down which was about 6pm when we stayed there
No lights after dark
Pool was cold but they started the heater on request but it took a long time to get warm and next day they turned it off again.
Pool was kept clean considering a tropical climate but was dirty around the pool
Have to put all your food, drinks and medicine inside the fridge or closed containers due to ants
Terrible shower. Needs updating
10 minute drive to beach
It was a good experience to stay in an open air hotel so I am glad we did.
But try other resorts with similar prices and better food like four seasons in kho Samui. For the same price the view ,the rooms the service and food is better including free nightly entertainment

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Ladera is the pioneer of the open air three-walled concept in St. Lucia and has since been distinguished by a wide range of international publications, awards and accolades from Conde Nast Traveler, Travel + Leisure, Forbes Life Caribbean Travel and Life, Brides Magazine and countless others. Ladera was once part of Rabot Estate, one of Soufriere's oldest plantations, which still borders the resort. In the late 1960's a parcel of land was sold and developed into a small cluster of condominiums and christened Dasheene, named after the thousands of large, glossy-leafed dasheen plants (also known as elephant ears) harvested on the site. In 1982 it was transformed into a unique resort and changed hands a number of times before emerging as Ladera under the current private ownership. The mission has always been to offer an unparalleled guest experience that is quintessentially Saint Lucian, one that embraces the magnificent views and offers harmony with the surrounding natural beauty and rich bounty of the island. Today, that commitment to sumptuous authenticity is evident in everything from the innovative renderings of fresh local dishes at Dasheene restaurant, to the use of Caribbean timbers, stone and tile work used in the guestrooms and public areas. Yet it shines through most effectively with warm and welcoming Saint Lucian staff. ... more less
