As many others have shared, East Winds is a gorgeous, tropical retreat with excellent food and a warm and caring staff. We were so pleased with our decision to stay at East Winds and I look forward to a return in the future. I would say our most pleasant and unexpected surprise of our stay was New Year's Eve. I...

Dear HET3777 Thank you for the lovely review, not just of the hotel but also of our NYE party! We all had a great time and the fact that our guests were enthusiastic and made the most of everything really made us all very happy.

This was our first visit to East Winds, we booked short notice because we were unhappy with our initial accommodations on the island. I am so glad we did! We have never considered ourselves partial to "all inclusive" hotels before, but East Winds is different. It's small, not crowded, has beautiful natural looking gardens and grounds, has a gorgeous beach...

Hi Sharkleberry So great to hear from you and I am delighted with your review. Especially as you weren't 100% happy with your initial St Lucian accommodation, it is wonderful that we rescued the experience for you and you have left with good memories of a wonderful holiday. Come back and see us again soon! Judith

My husband and I spent a week at East Winds over the New Year, and it went above and beyond our expectations. We fell in love with St. Lucia's beautiful beaches and wonderful weather, but we didn't want to go to one of the big rowdy resorts, so the reviews of this well-kept secret caught our eye. Not only was...

Only roughly 30 cottages, lower number furthest from beach, pool, and restaurant. Lovely guest but crowds are bit more seasoned. The staff is incredibly accommodating and I do not believe I ever heard the word no. Even when the wife and I wanted to take a bottle of champagne on the Hobe-cat for afternoon sail, they walked over the bucket...

Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Yes, but by now it's the minutiae that become important! The new bathrooms in the colonial-style bungalows were long overdue and are a great improvement, complete with magnifying mirror, though with nowhere to hang your wet swimming gear! The beach drinks service, which was introduced last year but failed to appear, was spot on this year with regular morning and...

Hi David Many thanks for the review. After so many visits it must be tricky to find different things to say but I think you have captured our efforts to evolve while maintaining our warm Caribbean family house party style. Thank you for the kind comments about the new refurbishments, I am really delighted that you like them. I am...

We read all the trip advisor reviews- my other half is something of a cynic and did not believe all the reviews he read- but wow was he wrong. From the moment we arrived the staff went the extra mile to make our stay magic. Our first experience was a welcome bottle of bubbly wine and some chocolates. The room...

It was our first visit to Eastwards but we hope it will not be our last. At the risk of repeating the praise that everybody has already lavished upon East Winds, I must say the service, food, accommodation and tropical gardens are quite superb. All members of staff from every department are so friendly, efficient and cannot do enough for...

Stayed at the East Winds after a recommendation from the Virgin Sales Rep in my local shop and it did not disappoint.

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.
