When there is a problem it is how you put it right. At the Blu Hotel in St Lucia we were fronted with no hot water on arrival for a few days because of a boiler problem. The part was enroute from USA. For the next few days this was totally forgotten because of the warmth of the staff. If you want somewhere without hassle, no big crowds and good service then I would recommend one of the 70 rooms at this hotel. Located at the end of the road it is a few minutes walk to the beach and about 10-15 walk to the main centre. The food was nice and the bar well stocked. Piton the local brew is served in a chilled glass. Clean rooms, we had a ground floor pool view with terrace which was useful to get out of the sun for a while. Even in late November it was still mid 80's.
To apologise for the lack of hot water the hotel kindly gave us a dinner on the house. It was a kind gesture and as stated it is how you react to an issue. There are many local restaurants within walking distance. Buzz us a great upmarket place and the Red Snapper was excellent. Spinnakers on the beach is a must for cocktails at sunset.
