My husband and I went to the Bel Jou in November to celebrate my 50th birthday. After a pleasant flight with B A we decided to take the helicopter to the hotel. We had booked an Owners Suite for our 2 week stay. We were disappointed in the room and thought it was NOT worth the extra £700 especially as we had no hot water for 4 days during our stay and the barking dogs woke us every morning at 6am. However, all that aside, the food was fantastic, plenty selections and plenty of it. The staff were tremendous and so friendly. It was a very relaxed atmosphere. The outside pool although small was never a problem to get in and have a swim. Patrick and Victoria who run the hotel for Saga are very friendly. Victoria seems to be running all the time trying to help wherever she can. She also runs the spa and my husband had a back massage when we were there and it was excellent. We could not fault the cleanliness of the hotel and our room was cleaned every day. We took the sunset cruise during our stay and I would reccommend this, we had a great fun filled evening. We did use the courtesy bus to go into Castries which has some nice shops. There are a lot of steps in the hotel but you are well warned about this in the brochure. We would give our holiday a 8/10 but found the people in St Lucia among some of the friendliest in the world.
