Staff members are all very helpful and friendly. In particular the lovely young lady Jonita is so helpful and she was always making sure that we were happy and well-looked after. The hotel location is great. Soufriere is the best place where to stay while in St Lucia. Other reviews are talking about beggers around the streets near the hotel....

Before we begin, let us tell you about us. We are a young Canadian couple who often camp out in the woods with bare minimum, so we are far from particular. All we expect from a hotel room is cleanliness. And for 96 $ US, in the off season, we were sorely disappointed. The first room we were given, had...

We wanted to spend one night in Soufriere before returning back to the US and did not want to spend a fortune on a resort. This hotel was good for what we needed even though less nice than what we expected. It is right in the middle of the town away from tourist areas but just a short driving distance...

This hotel is well located between the local and international airports on St. Lucia in the Caribbean. It is not a tourist area but a true local's town. I spent a night there before and after a sailing cruise. I would not advise staying there unless you want a view into the local flavor of the island population. The hotel...
