We stayed for one night to reduce the travelling whilst visiting the south, we had previously had lunch the day before and enjoyed so much we were really looking forward to our stay. We stayed in Angelina which was massive! As our stay was so short we did not really make the most of this beautiful plantation house. Whilst it...

A water pistol on the breakfast table. A Coqui frog in the bathroom singing its "Cook-ie" mating call. A gentle Lucian breeze wafting over me while I shower (from the partly open roof). Where am I? Most definitely in St Lucia. Not a generic resort. This is a 5 star EXPERIENCE. Much more than just a place to stay. At...

I must start by stating we were a family of four, more used to creature comforts and proper hotels than a authentic plantation holiday. But we went in with our eyes wide open and got what we expected; hence I wanted to present a very balanced view of what was great and what wasn't so great about the stay! Pros:...
