Check-in was painfully slow for 5pm on a Sunday. Large room was a 3rd floor walk-up. Comfortable bed, good flat-screen, nice balcony, adequate air conditioning. There is no desk, so very awkward for computer work. The bathroom is clean, but very poorly laid out. The toilet is wedged between the vanity and the shower, and that's exactly what you need...

May 2014 trip to St Lucia with some of the family (at least 20 of us) was a blast!! Not only because we were in good company, but because of the great hotel we stayed in.. Blu!!

Horrible hotel avoid at all costs. Next to the worlds loudest bar. A party literally in my room. Staff do not care. Go elsewhere. Cancel if you can. A hotel which can not offer hot water and a restful night is not a hotel at all.

The Village Inn is now The Blu Hotel, bought by the Harlequin Group earlier this year. We booked All Inclusive accomodation through Secret Escapes and received excellent value for money. It was very quiet whilst we were there, but the service and attention we received was fabulous. Very attentive & helpful staff without being intrusive. Food was fabulous, choice, quality,... More

The Village Inn and Spa became the Blu. The rooms and bar have been redecorated. They look OK and the stay is relatively comfortable. The service for breakfast is terrible. Slow and not reactive. It is a new team but still... The pool was not so clean when you look closer (steps, drains). Staff was nice but there is still... More
