Roms are ok, clean and everything is on it's place. So far 4 points. But they told us after paying, that we will have water only between 6 and 10. wifi was also bot available - only int that Hotel . That is not very funny in holidays. Lakeview without lakeview? This is not fair.

Perfect place to stay for families, comfortable, clean and friendly staff. Conveniently located within walking distance to supermarket and restaurants. Water restrictions were still in force but enough water was provided for a comfortable stay. Had a wonderful, restful stay.

Centrally located in St Lucia. Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice swimming pool and entertainment options like a pool billard and table tennis. Ideal for families. Room did not have a fresh odour, wish was masked with air refreshing perfume, not a major issue but a little point for improvement.
