I have a child in a wheelchair , I must say it was a challenge without the accessibility I'm accustomed to. But the owners and staff did their utmost best to make our stay comfortable. They equipped our room with ramps and accessible bars for her convenience. It prepares others who have a wheelchair to be able to take advantage... More

Overall it is a fine resort for visiting St. Lucia. All visitors should be aware that those with an physical impairments will not get full enjoyment from visiting St. Lucia, as it is VERY mountainous and not ADA-compliant at all. A lot of stair climbing and steep slopes. That said, the Fond Doux resort is very typical. Please note that... More

Great eco friendly resort on a working cocoa plantation. Staying here you really feel close to nature. The complimentary tour of the plantation was great and the guide was very knowledgeable about all the local fruits and flowers growing in the forest. All the staff were friendly and helpful.

If you like nature, beauty, quiet and being pampered, Fond Doux is for you. Nestled high in the volcanic rocks, the resort is everything we could have hoped for.

We had visited Fond Doux previously, on about five occasions, but had not been back for 8 years. In the very best way, nothing had been taken away from this experience of being in a truly beautiful location surrounded by exotic plants and flowers.

“Nice room, just got a bit hot in the daytime , no ac but at nights it was cool and beautiful .”

“Stayed at the Papaya cottage - what a climb! I was with my partner who was on crutches and it was exceedingly difficult. Not recommended for the non-physically fit! But the cottage was splendid and the resort is beautiful. Very warm and caring staff also.”

“Some rooms require a steep walk, I didn't mind that, but check for a cottage with less of a walk if that matters to you”
 of 5 bubbles Y2207OXannc, 13 Nov 2016 | Read review
“The rooms are actually cottages. If you have trouble walking/climbing, you might stick to the cottages that are not in the hills.”

“If you struggle with stairs, ask for a ground-level room or at the very least a lower level (so you don't miss the view).”
