My Husband and I stayed at Ladera Resort in the Casteries. Oh MY GORGEOUS!. The rooms in the resorts are all 3 walls, meaning they open out to an out of this world view of the Piton Mountains. The food at the restaurant we frequented was amazing! I’m still salivating. As for activities, I reccomend checking out the rainforest hike, snubbing at Sugar beach, and the sulfur springs (we didnt get to do that but I’m told it’s worth it.

scres1013:  Were all the activities there extra money? And do you get your own private villa with pool? From the pictures that’s how it looks but pictures can be deceiving!

_blackbird_:  Activities are extra. Each room has a private plunge pool. Ours was about 6ft in diameter and about 4ft deep. There is a pool on the property as well.

Ms_DW_bee:  We are considering the Sugar Beach Viceroy Hotel for our honeymoon 🙂 It looks really nice, and the reviews are great!

Ms_DW_bee:  We stayed in St. Lucia for a week.  We stayed in a house called “The House of the Stars.”  It was right up the road from the Sugar Beach resort, and we were able to go there and use the resorts amenities for a small fee.  Beautiful house.  We had a housekeeper, Ms. Mary who stopped by every morning, and her son Pious drove us around to wherever we wanted to go.  

If you want to go all inclusive, I’d say go for Sugar Beach.

-The south part of the island is virtually mosquito free and snake free due to the sulphur from the volcano.  Our house we stayed in was completely open to the elements on one side and we didn’t have one mosquito bite.  

We did the Rum factory tour in the North, it was neat and you got to try all the different flavors of rum. We bought 3 bottles of different kinds, and we still continue to order from them online.  This rum does not give you a hangover!

We hiked the Gros Piton, it was very hard and tiring, but the view was amazing.  Do NOT let anyone talk you into hiking the Petit Piton.  We had a few people offer to be our “guide” on the Petit, but Pious (our driver) told us it was a very dangerous climb.

We went to the Diamond Falls Botanical Gardens.  It was nice, and the guide we had was great, very nice and informative.

We visited the volcano and did the volcano mud bath.  Smelled disgusting, but was pretty cool, our skin was sooo soft and smooth, and how often can someone say they took a bath in a volcano? o.O  We were even able to take a ball of mud back home with us. 

We visited Soufrier a lot to buy groceries or wander around.  We wanted to get a feel for the culture and wanted to go fishing.  We met a guy called Bushman who took us out for the day and taught us how to handfish.  Admittedly, he’s a good talker and it was a little scary to go out on this little fiberglass boat with a local fisherman, but he showed us different areas along the coast (black sand beach, bat caves, etc) and we caught some fish…it was probably one of the coolest things we did because he pretty much showed us how he makes a living every day and we were able to learn a lot about their culture.  

We ate at the Sugar Beach Resort, Hotel Chocolat, or cooked at our house.  However, I HIGHLY recommend going to this little place along the Gros Piton hiking trail…even if you don’t want to hike the trail, there is a little park a little ways in and a lady has a “restaurant” in the park.  You have to make a reservation for lunch and she will ask you if you want chicken or fish.  That’s the only choices you get.  DH and I both got the fish, and she prepared it with some sides.  This was traditional St. Lucian food, and I’m telling you, it was the best thing we’ve ever eaten.  I’m still trying to figure out how to make pigeon peas the way she did.

We spent a week at Boucan Hotel Chocolat in one of the Luxe Lodges. LOVED it!

Granted, if we had a larger budget, we would have stayed at Sugar Beach. We went to the beach there 3 times and rented the hotel loungers for the day. The food was good, the drinks were good and the beach was fantastic.

We went to eat dinner at Dasheene at Ladera once and the rest of our dinners we had at Boucan. the breakfast at Boucan was AMAZING, I loved it.

The Tree to Bean & Bean to Bar experience at Hotel Chocolat was so informative and fun. The chocolate that we made was so delicious.

Ms_DW_bee:  We stayed at the Bay Gardens Resort, which we loved because it was a nice resort but had the option of NOT doing all inclusive, so we got to try some of the amazing restaurants in the Rodney Bay area. We went out for dinner almost every night (but occasionally got room service or ate in the hotel restaurant) and got to party at the local night spots as well. Some other guests of the hotel didn’t care to mingle with the local population, and they stayed on-property the entire time, and I think they had a good time as well. The resort has a full day of activities including water aerobics and whatnot (if you’re into that), but we preferred to be alone most of the time, so we skipped that stuff. The spa was divine and cheap! I went just about every day after lunch and never spent more than US$50, even when I got multiple treatments in a single appointment.

Missbigdreamer:  We are staying at Sandals La Toc! Glad to hear the good review. None of the good rooms (with outdoor balcony ) were available for conceirge so we went without- will we regret it? 

I was thinking about calling and seeing if we could pay more to get the conceirge in our current room- it has a nice private outdoor area=- but I am not sure if they will do that!
