WOW, it was finally nice to get away from everyday life from the east coast and just get to a place where my wife and I had privacy and a stunning view . The villa that we had was Casaurina and it was well kept ,neat and clean , adorable the Mrs. would like to mention , with beautiful scenic views of the petite piton and the sea and lush green surroundings. we often found ourselves in the hammock on the porch knocking back some wine .The plunge pool and out side shower were very romantic, and when it was mid day really was refreshing to cool off. The Mango Tree resturaunt had very nice atmosphere and the food was wonderful breakfast,lunch,dinner . if you find yourself in the company of Rawl the bartender you will have met a warm friendly guy who knows how to mix up a storm of great drinks. We asked to see each room and found that they all had something to offer and you really could not go wrong with any of them .Do not pass up a chance to go to Jalousie beach for snorkeling and later get a dinner you will like it . Stonefield was a great home base and refuge to venture off to other places on the island , such as zip lining , waterfalls ,exploring . youll never forget the views after you had a great night sleep it was great to have a cup of coffee and see the little humming birds buzz around on the porch . Enjoy Life...

Room Tip: Just check out the web site ,but fragipany and casaurina seemed to be what suited us

Just got back from a 6 night stay . We had the Jacaranda Villa, ocean view. Walking in we were blow away with everything. One of the nicest places we have ever stayed in. From the people at the front desk, restaurant servers to the maids, all were fabulous. The view is to die for, your own private pool, air conditioned bedroom and the view of Mt Piton is unbelievable. Make sure to visit Martha's Table for lunch, just a few miles away. Food was delicious and very plentiful. We rented a car at the airport and did not have a problem with driving, just have to be careful are the roads are narrow. Would love to return one day.

View, views, views. Just returned from a very relaxing 5 night stay. Our room, Casaurina, was great: walk-in closet, outdoor shower, 4 poster bed with romantic netting, private hammock and nicely sized plunge pool. The views were jaw dropping. It was easy to spend loads of time in our private perch. We had a superb couples massage at the hotel spa - very strong and nice aromatherapy. It was good to do after hiking up to the nearby warm spring waterfall. Snorkelling at Sugar Beach was also a fun activity as was walking through the Anse Chastanet bike trails. We ate dinner twice at Orlando's in Soufriere and loved the food. We booked through West Indies Online and were pleased with their service. Thank you Stonefield, we hope to return.

No TV! No phone in room! If this worries you then Stonefield is not for you! A breathtaking view of the sea and the Petit Piton, your own villa with hammock, private swimming pool, total seclusion? Excellent food and service, a free shuttle to a beautiful beach if you can tear yourself away from your villa.
There is also a very good if expensive spa on site.
A great place for a totally relaxing break in beautiful surroundings.

Stayed at this resort between Feb. 4-11th; it was exactly what others have said about this place. The staff are wonderful and are very polite; always greeting you with a smile. While we were there the resort was making improvements (i.e landscaping - cleaning the grounds, laying new tiles around the pool near the restaurant and a new fountain at the main reception area. This did not have any impact on our stay; if anything they are pretty quick with there improvements. It was wonderful to have your own pool. If you want to swim at the ocean then take the shuttle to Sugar Beach for the day; it was nice and it's free.

We ate the majority of our meals at the Mango Tree Restaurant. The food was good and we found that the prices were not any more expensive then other restaurants in the area. Although when you pay it says in your binder in your room that tips and grats. are already included, we tipped the staff anyway as the local people work hard and every little bit they receive, they are very grateful.

Oh, for those who watch the television show 'The Bachalor', the last episode, they stayed at this resort and filmed at another resort.

This resort is in a quite area and if you are looking for the party life then you should consider staying at Rodney Bay. Keep in mind, there are a lot of activities very close to this resort to keep you busy. We would definitely stay at this place again.

Room Tip: Great place to relax.

When I walked through the door to our Villa Frangipani, I felt like I had entered a tropical paradise. The plants were lush and surrounded the whole villa, the plunge pool was actually big enough to swim in and the villa itself was bright, roomy and airy. The outdoor shower was a definite plus, there were even plants in the shower itself. The views of Petit Piton and the ocean from our veranda were spectacular. The staff is informed, warm and very helpful. Breakfasts were great, especially the banana pancakes and the piton special. The dinners were so good, we did not eat any place else during our stay. We had a couples massage at the spa and Charmaine and Dawn were exceptional, they really got the tension knots out of my back. My husband and I enjoyed waking up each morning to the sun rising over the ocean and sitting on the veranda at night as the sun set. Stonefield staff can arrange pretty much any activity you want, we went snorkling, and took a boat trip up as far as Rodney Bay, or you can just relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery together. I would definitely go back to Stonefield Estate!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Frangipani Villa, very private and beautifully decorated.

Couldn't sleep last night, wandered around the house, tried to load maps on the GPS from the PC but ran out of time. Half asleep Betty thought I was a caveman, or a chupacabra and went back to sleep. Hit the Starbucks at the airport and made the 6AM Delta flight. Whew!
Flight was on time no hang ups from the aircrew, but Delta charges $25 per checked bag and then charges for food on the plane! Where is PanAm, when everyone was treated first class?
Hewanorra airport is an asphalt runway, where the plane pulls up directly to the building and parking, no great amount of walking, but long customs line, be sure and fill out a customs form for each person. The car was a 4x4 Suzuki but the road from Hewanorra to the Stonefield Estates needed Betty's BMW 300ci: curves, chicanes ,switchbacks, Jesus bar stops for goats, don't hit that cow, and didn't we see that dog before? Gorgeous views of the Petit Piton and the ocean...
Stonefield Estates is at the midpoint of a winding descent down a stony one lane road. Simple and very private, each small villa has a plunge pool and 10 foot tall privacy fences all around the tiled sun deck and outdoor shower. Our plunge pool overlooked the Petit Piton and the ocean below. Gorgeous views. But, be sure to have good knees. There are many steep stairs and the driveways are by design rough concrete. The walk to the beach is down a 35 degree angled rough road.
The Mango tree restaurant has a beautiful view of the ocean and the Petit Piton, but is pricey- $300 Caribbean dollars for dinner for two.
We took the tour of the Piton waterfall which was nice. The charge is $3 US and you can also pay a guide, but the trail is short and the guide worthless. It's the first waterfall I've been to with hot water, very nice to soak in. We met a couple from Denmark and their very tall two year old son that swam well and with gusto! He kept us entertained for a half hour.
Don't bother with Sugar beach at Jalousie unless you're staying there. There is a 1/2 mile walk down a steep hill from the parking lot to the beach, and when there the staff won't let you rent chairs with a palapa covering, those are for the Jalousie hotel guests only. The hotel itself looks a little run down, not as nice as the online photos. The guests not in one of the the 10-15 beachside villas use a golf cart to ride to the beach. Beautiful to sit between the Pitons on this narrow but very clean beach. The beach itself was moderately rocky but clear water.
Had dinner at the Hummingbird Inn in Soufriere. Betty had the fisherman"s delight, which was all sorts of fish, squid, octopi and scallops in a white garlicky cream sauce-magnafique! I had creole fish : panfried mahi mahi in a tomato sauce- also great. Driving at night down a curvy mountain road into Soufriere was nail biting . The first part of Soufriere is very poor, not a pretty town at all. The streets are narrow, but the Rastafarians along the way are happy to point you in the right direction when you take that wrong turn. We were happy to get back to our villa.
Tuesday, drove back to Soufriere and visited the Superman falls. These are easy to get to, just take a right at the large Catholic Church in Soufriere and head up the mountain. You will pass the Diamond falls on the right and after a 10 minute drive, come to a small bridge and a gagle of hawkers. This fall, like the Piton falls can be entered and you can experience the water hitting from the top, ~50 feet up. Cold, but doable. There was a short walk and being there early we had the place to ourselves. Then the adventure began...
We drove farther up the mountain to the Edmund forest preserve. The road went from the usual Saint Lucia bad to impassable without 4x4. Hats off to our subcompact 4x4 Daihatsu!
We drove through small villages, asked directions frequently, even stopping farmers in the field. There was one narrow uphill turn where we fully expected to be rolled over by that huge stone ball from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom! We got there though and at the top was a surprised tall Lucian boy that showed us the trail. Best to ask, there were two washouts along the way. OK, dig this, you've just stepped into a scene from the Emerald Forest or Apocalypto. Birds, parrots, hummingbirds, small mammals the look like furry tailed rats, and gorgeous hues of green and chocolate. We had Chacos on, so went about a mile on the trail and then went back. This trail needed real hiking boots. Then down the mountain again, thankful for no flat tire or broken suspension parts. On to Anse Chastanet.
This is another cloistered hotel that I think is most visited by taxi(not yellow cab, but some type Japanese microbus) rather than by car. We drove to Soufriere again, but turned left at the church and then right along the beach to the Hummingbird cafe. There, we took the steep(Betty said 45 degrees) road along the coast to the beach. Still no views of the Anse Chastanet hotel; it must be hidden in the forest up the mountain. Did I say it was hilly here?
Now the Anse Chastanet beach: dark volcanic sand and crowded poor amenities. The chairs had no cushions and of course, if you're not from the Anse Chastanet, no palapa or umbrella for you. There is food and a restaurant, but also a dive shop and small boat rental all crammed into 50 yards of rough ocean beach front with a rocky underwater. We both had the same thought and moved on. At the north end of Anse Chastanet beach are some crude steps(they were still pouring concrete along the path) that leads to Anse Mamin. The walk was 1/2 mile.
Now, Anse Mamin is a dream of a beach. It is a 100 yard wide beach that I prefer of all that I've seen on Saint Lucia. There were chairs(no cushions ) and large palapa style sun screens over the chairs and the built in table. The first day there we lucked into a palapa and chairs. If you plan to arrive here, bring you own towels. The next day, no palapa, just chaise lounges, but we had banana and palm leaves for shade. The rum punch is stout. Betty recommends the Coco Doo, but order early, they run out of coconuts.
Thursday: Not feeling so well today, so just liquids for me at breakfast and then on to the Hotel Chocolate! This is a hotel and restaurant built on an old cacao plantation. We took the tour which was quite informative. We saw trees and pods, then grafted our own cacao tree in their nursery. The trees have our names on them and are registered. Then the work began. We used hot mortars and pestles to grind cacao beans(cacao mass) into chocolate. We added cocoa butter(the whitish yellow fat from the beans) and soon( check that, about 45 minutes later) had a chocolate syrup ready to be molded into a bar. Quite fun. The hotel consists of small villas up the mountain with individual plunge pools. Great view of the Petit Piton but on the main road and not as quiet as Stonefield or as isolated as Anse Chastanet or Jade Mountain.
Friday: mud bath and sunset cruise. Do the Sulphur Springs volcano and mud bath. It's a short drive, you get a smelly tour(sulphur) and then a small stream full of dark volcanic mud which is gleefully smeared from chin to toe or more depending on the tourist. Great pictures of elderly British women as black as savages! The black sand feels soft but really grinds on the skin. Felt good to wash it off back at the villa. We rested, tanned and finished off the wine and beer. It's the only place I know where you can be in full sun and still get sprinkled on by the clouds coming over the mountain tops from East to West.
And then the sunset cruise: the name Mystic Man cruises means nothing. These guys were Saint Lucians out for a good time. They bought the chicken wings at the Soufriere market and Nigel's girlfriend cooked them. But the according to Bradley, Nigel has seven girlfriends! Nigel retorted that Bradley had two husbands! And so it went, between rum punches and cheap Champaign at sunset. Beautiful views of the Pitons and the hidden resorts on the sides of the western mountains. Some you cannot see from the shore. Great sunset, fun crew, highly
recommend it.
Saturday: breakfast at the Mango Tree, fed the chat(cat). Checked out. $1300 EC more to pay($2.67 per dollar) but that included all our tours and cruises, and two evening meals. Drove to Vieux Forte quickly. It looks longer on the map but the road is much more curvy with one foot tall by ten foot long speed bumps in the smal villages. Got to the Hewanorra airport early and easily drove to Micloud and stopped at the Latille falls. Nice to see easy to get to but all muddy because of a heavy rain. Went down the mountain again to Vieux Forte, easily back to the airport by one PM, went to the Reef bar on the Anse de Sables. Most spectacular scene of wind parasailing I've ever seen. These guys had a 20 naut wind to play with and would hit a wave then fly in the air 10 feet! Their horizontal speed was tremendous, but it looked very tiring. The beach itself was well used, not picked up at all with a small non-resort bar and restaurant. The prices were much less than at the Stonefield .
Alas, back to the airport and home. Line up and wait. The apps that say your flight is on time quickly send you a text or email that it's not, and so it goes. Memphis and Atlanta make you go through security again. Still no free food on Delta, grabbed something before we boarded. Wish I could see those Piton's again, or Betty by that plunge pool...

Room Tip: The Gingerlily had a gorgeous view of the ocean and the Petit Piton and was close to the restaurant.
