On paper Fond Doux should be brilliant, but I came away disappointed. When you compare it to what else you can get for the money, then I have to score it as "poor". On the positive, the staff were very friendly and accommodating and it's certainly picturesque being nestled in the St. Lucia rainforest. It's also well placed for the...

Our stay at Fond Doux was perfect! The staff there is as friendly and inviting as i've ever seen. The location in Soufriere is the best on the island because it's near the sulphur springs, the Pitons! and Sugar Beach.

Fond Doux is a gem, nestled within a beautiful rainforest area of St Lucia. With possibly the most friendly staff on the island, and excellent food and drinks, you are sure to enjoy your stay.

We rented a two bedroom cottage for four days. The place couldn't have been more beautiful and charming.
