I chose this hotel for a last minute break in the sun. Everything that was presented in the description was spot on so I had no disappointments during my stay there. In fact I can only commend the highly professional management, the very friendly helpful staff for whom nothing was too much trouble and the saga rep Elizabeth who bent...

I'm writing this on my balcony at the Bel Jou, with wondrous views over the Caribbean. It's our fourth Xmas holiday here and we keep coming back because of the atmosphere, the friendliness of the staff, and the compatibility of our fellow guests. There's nothing wrong with the food and the pool is nice and shady and refreshing. I've only...

Good complimentary bus 2 -3 times daily to Castries centre, Vigie Beach (for local swimming), Rodney Bay (for...

My husband and I have recently returned from three weeks at this lovely hotel. This was our third time visiting but this time the best ever. The food was excellent especially the celebrated creole day where the food was all traditional and the staff and restaurant looked fantastic. The hotel is situated at the top of a hill but a...

Recently had my first Saga holiday, a 10 day trip via a special internet offer. Chauffer service and flight were excellent on outbound journey. Return however could have been better as a minibus was used. Hotel was being refurbished and i had a newly completed room in the main building. Room facilities were good with many extras. Stunning views from...
