My husband and I stayed for 8 days and we felt as if we were family. The cottages are wonderful and quaint, the plantation is so lush and beautiful and it was a educational experience to see how cocoa is transformed from the fruit to the cocoa stick. The staff were wonderful and the food was delicious. As a vegetarian the chef would prepare local vegetarian food that was not listed on the menu - delicious!! The plantation is located near the town of Soufriere and there are many things to do in that area. I highly recommend it and when we decide to return to St. Lucia we will be staying here again.
