Having spent 11 days at East Winds Inn (3rd visit) in the north of the island we thought we would try Hotel Chocolat for 3 nights on the way back to the airport.It was our first visit and their first year with guests, I believe. It is a cocao plantation that is expanding into the hotel market but currently it can better be described as a restaurant (with great views of the Pitons) with accommodation close by rather than a hotel. A small pool and lounge area are situated below the restaurant but sadly there is road noise or the continual music from above. We did not use this area but tried to relax in another small decking area and maybe this will be improved for shade when the foliage has grown. The walking in the area, is without doubt, beautiful. I will not dwell on the elegant food as I suffered a severe bilious attack and spent one day asleep. However, I was shown kindness and concern by management and staff alike.
