THANKS FOR LETTING THE SECRET OUT We greatly appreciate your candid and extremely positive review of both St. Lucia and your experience at East Winds Inn.

We stayed at East Winds in early May and had a most relaxing holiday. On arrival we were greeted by the reception staff and manager with refreshing cold towells and a rum punch!
