After booking this hotel I was quite worried by some of the reviews I had read. But once we arrived at the hotel I was so glad we had chosen this resort. Firstly I cannot praise the staff enough they... Read more were wonderful. Very friendly and eager to please. I cannot remember being more impressed with staff at a hotel. Then there was the food! I never once had a bad meal there, we were able to book a reservation at one of the 3 restaurants and the food in the main restaurant was always good. Quick tip: breakfast in the Waterside restaurant is wonderful for food and views. Yes, the rooms are tired but we found the bed very comfortable and it was cleaned to a high standard. The entertainment in the evening isn't great and can be loud and there is only the one bar open but that is the only negative I could find with the place! Overall a superb holiday Read less
I think it was an excellent hotel with plenty of activities for all ages including water sports ,7 pools and much more. It also had plenty of places to eat such as the Italian restaurant and the... Read more buffet with the food selection fantastic. The rooms were amazing sizes and every night we had a great night sleep. All the staff were really friendly and helpful and make you feel at home. My mum and dad got married there and had steel band which was really good. Written by Zoe , age 11 Read less

Read more comes to food but its not nice it is not a four star as it states in book its more like a two star we read reports before we went and like always we take them with a pinch of salt because you have to experience them yourselfs . we just thought the reports that people put were being picky but they wasnt we know that now .it was our first time in st lucia and we didnt enjoy it can i also say the ride to smugglers bay is horrendous, i wouldnt recommend this place to anyone Read less
This resort appears to have four restaurants to choose from ranging from a buffet style to 3 themed venues tonight we tried the fish Restaraunt and must admit not that impressed the food was nice but... Read more the service left a lot to be desired.. We had been served our starter before we were even offered the choice of any wine (but must admit once given a glass they kept it topped up!) the main course although very nice was just dumped In front of us and I was served my partners choice as they did not bother to check! So in summary food good but service needs much improvement! Read less
