The hotel lived up to our expectations. We had a fabulous time.Everyone was friendly and nothing seemed to be to much trouble. If you are looking for all inclusive with a personal touch this is the place for you.

We always stay at the next door hotel (Windjammer Landing) for three weeks every April and during our stay we always visit East Winds for dinner at least twice. We have just had two excellent evenings there and the standards of both food and service are as good as ever, if not even a tad better. The lady in bar...

We first stayed at East Winds in February 2011 We found the whole experience very relaxing and enjoyable and were so impressed with the service that we had intended to return earlier but access to St Lucia from the north of England was not easy because for several years there were no direct flights to St Lucia from the north...

My perfect idealization of an island retreat! The a conditions were nice. The grounds were beautiful, and the food prepared by a French chef was just absolutely beautiful. The fruit and seafood was fresh and delectable. The staff was so accommodating. I'm pining to return for a repeat perfect holiday!

We have just returned from a fantastic holiday at East Winds. It was our first visit to this resort and on arrival we couldn't help but be impressed by the lush tropical gardens (the garden tour is really worthwhile) that completely surround the hotel, leading down to a lovely sandy beach fringed by palm trees. In the evenings the warm...

This was our sixth visit and Eastwinds is still as special as the first visit. ALL the staff, as mentioned before, are really lovely and will do anything to make your stay special. The newly refurbished bathrooms are really lovely and the new sunloungers on the beach are really comfortable (the old ones were really past their sell by date!)....

Hi SueJohn Thanks for your review and the lovely comments. We have a new team on the beach this year who are great sailors and can actually teach you to sail next time you are here - if you need those lessons! I am so happy that you loved everything about our wonderful island home. See you soon! Judith

The resort is set in beautiful gardens and on a nice beach. The rooms are well appointed and very comfortable. The food is superb. But what really makes this place is the wonderful staff who do everything they can to ensure every guest has a great stay.

Nice all inclusive resort, small number of rooms, very refined. Quiet and has a remote feel to it. Lovely grounds. Lots of elderly Brits, who return year after year. Friendly staff, food is good but not great. Very formulaic, get the feeling that if its first Monday of the month this is the menu. Beach area is small but they...

If you are thinking of staying at East Winds as one of the few first time guests, you only need to spend a few minutes reading the extraordinarily consistently high praise reviews to know that you will not be disappointed.

Unlike many of the guests, this was our first stay. This hotel delivers what it promises and there is not much you could fault it on.
