This was our second visit to Boucan by Hotel Chocolat in Soufriere, St Lucia. Soufriere, and this hotel, have become one of our favourite places on earth! The beauty of St Lucia and the amazing people of this island are perfectly complemented and highlighted by this incredibly thoughtful and luxurious boutique hotel. We were lucky to get married at the...

Loved our stay here. Lux lodge #8 had the most beautiful view of the piton-miss galling asleep and waking up to it. Breakfast was very good, lunch/dinner selection was pretty good as well. Shuttle and boat trip to the beach every day is very convenient and not a hustle at all. Certainly one of the most beautiful destinations in the...

I had a delightfully peaceful 3 nights in this wonderfully exotic hotel. The grounds are very lush and tropical, after all, it's a cocoa plantation. I took the "bean to bar@ tour where I was taught about all the local flora and fauna. I also grafted a tree, attached my surname, had a photo op and made a bar of...

Me and my husband spent four days at Hotel Chocolat and we had a wonderful time! This small hotel is tucked into the greenery - you can't even see it from the road apart from the sign. The view from the restaurant/reception area is just stunning! We got a complementary welcome cocktail to enjoy with the view. There were also...

Free shuttle to the beach is a smooth boat trip from the town of Soufriere around the Piton on our very own Boucanieer II boat - great way to arrive. Great tips for future travelers - Thanks

We drove for an hour to have lunch and it was worth the trip. The dinner menu looked better, but since the Piton is not illuminated (?) you would miss the view. The menu was not gimmicky with chocolate or carob nibs. It all worked well. We should have left room for the pud, as we ended up sharing one....

Pros -absolutely beautiful area within the resort, amazing view of Petit Piton (I liked the view here more than ladera) -the little touches like complimentary drink you choose upon arrival, treats refilled daily, water, etc. -room: we were given an upgrade for our 7 night stay, I wouldn't say to expect one, but it was fantastic that they did this,...

We stayed here for a week for our honeymoon from the end of Dec. 2014 through NYE of 2015*. We stayed in Luxe Lodge #8 (we requested #7 for the best views but it was occupied by the hotel owner at the time...). The property is small but it could have been in a junk yard for all we cared...

Its pricey but with a great setting. Views of the Pitons and surrounded by rainforest. Great rooms with very good facilities. Near Sulphur Springs attraction and waterfalls. All in all a great place to be.

We decided to go to Boucan after all the fabulous reviews and unfortunately, it just didn't measure up to the other places we had been in Soufriere.. Not even slightly. Their executive chef was also visiting from London which is a concern seeing as the tomato gazpacho which was meant to be chilled, came out warm-ish and thick like salsa....

Thoroughly enjoyed staying here for the last 5 days with my wife. I strongly recommend the Luxe Lodges for their views, extra space and terraces. Judy and her husband have created a superb rainforest hotel less than a mile from the beach which gives a sense of the true St. Lucia....warm, based in agricultural traditions of cocoa and tropical fruits....
