The rooms at Jade are frankly over the top, imagine an architect (the owner) given free reign to build his vision. Words don't really describe the experience of being in the room and overlooking the Pitons. All of the staff was always helpful and courteous. The overall resort, including Anse Chastanet, is one of our favorites of all of our Caribean travel. It is relaxing, laid back, and very cozy. You can not miss a burger at Anse Mamin beach next door, it was great. The food at the resort overall was of very high quality and didn't disapoint. I would recommend doing some type of all inclusive plan, the al a carte prices are steep. We were on the Total Romance package, the only drawback was that there were more activities included than we could possibly do in 5 nights. I personally took several dive trips with them and they did a good job, several of the more popular sites are literally a 10 min boat ride away, they also have a nice reef just off the beach.
Staying at Jade is truly a unique experience; yes it's expensive, but in all of our travels through the world, this is truly the most special resort/room that we have found. I would highly recommend it, we were on our honeymoon and it is a fantastic place for that special a trip.
To address some of the complaints that I read prior to going:
The road - yes it is narrow, twisty, steep, and bumpy. Get over it, you're in the Caribean many roads are like this.
The weather - You're picking a unique place that is open to the elements, know that and accept the risk. We had a tropical storm our last night there with 40 mph winds (thank you Rafael), we made it through and will be a story for the rest of our lives.
Bugs - We had none...
