We recently stayed seven days in East Winds Inn, St Lucia. This was our fourth time and it didn't disappoint us although we arrived with high expectations. The accommodation is excellent. The bungalow we stayed in was very comfortable, clean, spacious and very well furnished. The food was good overall but we particularly enjoyed the food at breakfast and lunch...

THANK YOU FOR THE EXCELLENT REVIEW FROM PARADISE Arriving for your fourth trip to East Winds Inn with high expectations and not being the least bit disappointed is indeed an accomplishment for everyone – both from the staff’s and your perspective.

We only booked our holiday to the East Winds Inn at short notice on personal recommendation and also from reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. The hotel, accommodation and staff were superb but what we felt was most outstanding was the quality of food and the excellent presentation of it. The music at lunch and evening dovetailed perfectly with the...

The Caribbean is good news in most areas, but the easy-going friendliness of most St Lucians is second to none, and the staff of EWI exceed even that! From reception to the dining room, and from gardeners to porters they are unfailingly cheerful, courteous and efficient which gives the impression they would do anything for you. We were very pleased...

THANKS FOR THE GREAT, WELL WRITTEN REVIEW After re-reading the first sentence of your review three times over, it was obvious this was going to be an interesting and excellent posting – which it certainly turned out to be. Thanks for stating, in essence, that the staff at East Winds Inn are more than just friendly St. Lucians, but downright...

Wow, what a hotel. The staff were absolutely wonderful and nothing was too much trouble for them. They were so helpful, (always smiling) and made you feel very special. They were happy to arrange any trips you wanted to go on even if it was something out of the ordinary. I am sure the manager must be really proud of...

First time in Caribbean, so unsure what to expect. But St. Lucia and East Winds have both met our best expectations in all respects. We have just completed the most relaxing one week break we could ever imagine. Booked via BA holidays and was upgraded to deluxe cottage with aircon. In fact never used aircon as ceiling fan more than...

We choose to go to EWI after our original honeymoon destination caught fire and we didn't want to change our travel dates. We wanted, small (no more than 40ish rooms), all inclusive and no kids. Our travel agent spoke highly of it and we had considered it when doing our research so we set off happy in our choice. We...

THANKS FOR THE VERY GOOD REVIEW We appreciate the review of your recent honeymoon stay at East Winds Inn, where you chose to come after your initial selection of a Caribbean location experienced an unfortunate fire. We are pleased we could accommodate you on such short notice, as there is typically a lull in hotel occupancies shortly after the New...

This is a small resort where you really can relax. The staff are delightful and they make a real effort to please you. The food, cocktails and wine are excellent. There are no queues and there is no scramble for sun beds. The most stressful activity you are likely to encounter is whether to choose the pool or beach; the...

We had a wonderful time. The service was superb and warm. The food was generally delicious particularly the produce. The accommodations were top rate. We loved the semi outdoor but very private shower. The grounds were like a botanical garden. The beach was very inviting and the swimming area was gentle and quite large. We used the Hobie cat and...

This is a lovely place. It's not earth-shatteringly stunning in the way that Jade Mountain is. It's a cosier, simpler, gentler experience. The staff are really exceptional. The food is good (not mind-blowing, but good). The beach is very pleasant and, apparently, this is the only small hotel on the beach in St Lucia. The other beach-front places having been...
