My wife and I chose St. Lucia as our honeymoon destination and Mago Estate as our place to celebrate it. Our initial booking was at Sandals Halcyon, but it was $3200 USD for ONE week (all-inclusive though lol) and when I saw how tiny that room was... NO DICE! We we looking for large American-style space and a naturally beautiful environment... Mago Estate delivered at a price that gained us an additional week in St. Lucia and still had cash to spare! In total, we spent two weeks on the estate and made daily excursions throughout the scenic places on the island… St. Lucia is more fun when you have the autonomy of a rental car (book through Drive-A-Matic).The property is located on a cliffside overlooking the town of Soufriere. In certain open-air rooms, there was a little local noise early in the morning, but we easily remediated that with earplugs... Not an issue for us at all since we were honeymooning anyway :P. In addition, we stayed in a glass-enclosed air-conditioned room (in the Eden suites) and heard NO NOISE from the town below. The picturesque view of the Petit Piton was "otherworldly" and more than made up for the numerous steps on the property taken to get to certain rooms. During meal time while scouting for local cuisine, we visited the neighboring luxury hotels that share the common view of the Pitons and they are all about the same... except for the SUPER expensive ~$1200/night Jade Mountain Resort. My wife is a true "girly girl", but she was able to quickly adapt to the rustic (but naturally beautiful) luxury accommodations at the Mago Estate. At check-in, were served with complimentary fresh squeezed "refreshments", which absolutely broke-the-ice with the staff and made us feel absolutely welcome to our St. Lucian residence. The staff was EXTREMELY attentive to all of our needs from private local tours (for free), daily room service inquiries, and even laundry service (huge savings)! The onsite chef is terrific and is the best chef in Soufriere and beyond (well worth the money). The property offers complimentary breakfast consisting of fresh bread, various fruit, coffee, tea, and fresh squeezed juice... VERY HEALTHY and a huge savings in the pocket! We ate everywhere on the island... One night we dined at Ladera's Desheene Restaurant and WASTED 375 ECD ($150 USD) on a meal that was NASTY and made our stomach hurt! Yes, there may be a few opportunities for improvement with the property, but bar none, this is the best value for Piton viewing and probably one of the best values on the island. For additional savings, book your stay DIRECTLY with Mago Estate’s front desk… Cheaper that way! There were sad faces when we loaded up for the airport to return to The United States (which was sweet :)... Our honeymoon was PERFECT in part due to the seductive environment of the Mago Estate property and the great staff!
