Pictures don't do it justice. The view from this intimate boutique resort is unbelievable. The entire staff was friendly and attentive. Shorna was especially nice and befriended my wife and I. The food is amazing. The chocolate tour was intriguing. The individual cabins are not insulated or air conditioned. But it's ok, local temperature is mild, not too hot not...

So glad we got your honeymoon off to a brilliant start, thanks for recommending our complementary beach shuttle daily, great way to catch a few rays!

We stayed for ten glorious days in one of the Luxe lodges. We did not want to leave. The hotel has a lovely relaxed vibe, the staff are attentive, courteous and all round fabulous. We were certainly made very welcome. Breakfast was a delight. Fresh fruit platter with a smoothie shot, followed by mini chocolate banana muffins then eggs in...

My boyfriend and I stayed at Hotel Chocolat for a week and I must say, we were amazed every step of the way. We were at one of the lux rooms and we had a view of the piton and had an outdoor shower. The food and drinks were amazing. Breakfast was complementary for hotel guests as they provided fresh...

Location gives beautiful views of the pitons and shuttle service to soufriere and sugar beach was efficient. The beach was beautiful and not at all over developed! The area has some great walks, especially the old french road and if you go on the underwater explorer trip there is some amazing snorkelling. Food was great, breakfast lovely with amazing dark...

My husband and I stayed for 10 days September 2015. We did their 'Everything all in' all inclusive package and stayed in a lodge. The hotel was amazing, the staff were lovely. The views were outstanding, the food was delicious, the cocktails were super tasty. Couldn't have been any better. We enjoyed a number of the tours, the tree to...

My boyfriend and I stayed for a week here in October 2015. Incredible experience. We ate at the hotel (highly recommend if you are not staying) and did a chocolate tour, which I also recommend. We even made our own batches of chocolate and planted a cocoa tree. We stayed in of the luxury houses up on top and the...

We stayed here for 5 nights at the end of our honeymoon and this hotel surpassed our expectations in every way possible. The room was incredible with a beautiful view of the petit piton (we got upgraded!) and amazing outdoor shower. Easily the best hotel room we've ever stayed in... We loved the little touches like the iPod with different...

You can tell we love it, our third time. If you're expecting a large hotel with air conditioning and easy access to a beach, then this is not the place for you. This is a hotel with a difference, less people, closer to nature and tranquil. This trip was a little warmer and humid than our last visits but even...

As you drive up the western coast of St. Lucia from Hewanorra airport to Hotel Chocolat, it is easy to see how the island became the ‘Helen of the West Indies’: the azure of the Caribbean laps gently to your left while the dense, leafy, jade green of volcanic forest rises up on your right. The towns of Sapphire and...

As a regular visitor to St Lucia, and also a customer of Hotel Chocolat back in the UK, I was really looking forward to a couple of nights here with my partner. However we were both pretty disappointed - Boucan could be so much more with very little effort but it misses the mark and doesn't begin to live up...
