Had a fantastic holiday at East Winds. Staff are excellent and go out of their way to help you. Food was amazing at all meal times. Wine and champagne flowed freely. We got to meet lots of lovely people, most of which go back year after year. We will also be making a return to East Winds.

We were truly spoilt at the East Winds restaurant. They set up the private and romantic gazebo for us with candles, champagne, flowers and nice decorations. East Winds truly made us feel welcome and special, always tending to our every need. The staff was friendly, the food tasty and the setting romantic! Loved the sparkling lights across the water from...

It is difficult to say much that hasn't been said already but here goes..... We arrived in atrocious weather ( so bad that the aircraft took two goes to land! ) but, as soon as we arrived at East Winds, all that was forgotten! The warmth of the reception and our first champagne cocktails were a prelude to an amazing...

We have just arrived back in the UK from our fourth visit to East Winds in the last sixteen months. And to get back yesterday from 30+degrees C to -5 degrees C at Gatwick and scraping frost off the car was, to say the least, something of a shock to the system! This is probably going to be the shortest...

We had never been to St Lucia before or been on an all inclusive but the experience was superb from start to finish. The rooms are wonderful and the staff do not stop smiling or being helpful.

East Winds Inn is simply a lovely place in every aspect: beautiful, understated décor, lovely beach and pool, amazing gardens, seriously outstanding food and wine, tasteful entertainment, and flawless friendly service. The ambience is both top notch and unpretentious, elegant and comfortable. I only wish we had stayed much longer!

Decided to go here for some sun before Christmas having never been to St Lucia before. We weren't disappointed- this boutique hotel is set in acres of lovely gardens and all the accommodation is in cottages throughout the gardens so lots of privacy and comfortable beds with stocked minibar. Private beach and nice pool but the best part was the...

My family and I went to East Winds for my sisters wedding. We were there for ten days. From day one the service was impeccable. All the staff were incredible friendly; nothing was too much.

If you are after a resort with lots to do, with people bothering you to "get involved", and wild parties at night, then this is perhaps not the place for you. However.......
