Just returned from the Bel Jou hotel in St Lucia. A great pity that this hotel was sold by Saga. I had been twice before and the hotel is not the same as it was although it is difficult to pinpoint differences. The biggest change is in the courtesy bus services , these do not run as frequently as before...

20th Sept to 6th Oct 2016. A hotel like no other. The staff cannot do enough for you. What ever you want, you only have to ask. If there is a dance or you need a partner to play a game, either the staff will join you or find someone for you. This hotel requires the guests to get involved,...

I have recently returned from a 2 week stay at the Bel Jou . As stated in other reviews the hotel has recently changed hands and many changes have been implemented . Due to the perseverance of the Saga guests some of these were reinstated. In spite of these inconveniences ( especially the pool ), thanks to the superb staff...
