“Not the best spot on earth, but could have been worse”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2011

We had two weeks booked in June, but overall, for the last 3 nights of the holiday escaped to the north of the island. Couldn't stand the hassle from locals any more. The hotel stands right on the dark sand beach and locals usually hang about there all the time. They keep asking if you need a water taxi etc. etc. and sometimes I found this a bit annoying.

The actual room had shampoo, shower gel, towels were changed.
Poor breakfast, 3 options available every morning and no dinner served either. Fresh fruit in the room every day! awesome:) Not a single night the bar was open, so we were heading up to Hummingbird next door for a drinks. Other option is town, but you got to brave to wonder around at night in there...

Good views, perfect location, many things to see around. Not many rooms in the hotel either, which is good.

Overall I would say- average...

A wonderful stay! My husband & I stayed at the Still Beach House from 2 Aug - 8 Aug 2011. It is a beautiful place right on the beach - nothing beats the sound of falling asleep or waking up to the sound of ocean waves. With only five rooms, it is nice, quiet, and relatively remote, but still only a couple minutes walk to town. We had the breakfast option with our room - my husband regularly got pancakes, eggs, & fruit while they also accommodated my food allergies and vegetarianism with a lovely fruit plate each day. We also had the lunch buffet one day, which was wonderful with lots of options.

If you are going to do any tours, we highly recommend Thomas - he took us on the tour of the Ruby Plantation today (owned by David's family). He was so wonderful, friendly, generous, and hospitable. He gave us a quote to take with us: "there is no fear in love but perfect love cast out fear, because fear hath torment...he that fear is not made perfect in love". Another quote he gave us was about the biggest room in life being the room for improvement.

David, the owner, was also very friendly and accommodating to our needs. When our taxi that my husband arranged didn't show up tonight for dinner at the Boucan, David kindly arranged another ride for us. A few nights ago he also gave us a warm welcome to the hotel and spent quite a bit of time speaking with us. Additionally, he kindly gave us a ride back to the Hotel after spending the morning at the Ruby plantation. Very friendly, down to earth gentleman.

Overall I had a very good experience at the Still Beach house. The rooms are pretty with a gorgeous view of the Petit Piton. I thought that the owner was very helpful overall. The pros and the cons:

Pros- beautiful view, great value for the area, a/c, walking distance to town.

Cons- staff wasn't always super friendly (i found this true of most st. Lucians), wireless doesnt work in rooms, attractions aren't all walking distance.

Overall this is the best value in the Soufriere area. if you go, be sure to arrange a tour of Ruby Plantation,
The owners farm. It's the best place I went in St Lucia.

Still Beach is in a prime spot for everything you would want to do in St. Lucia. Access to the Pitons, volcano, waterfalls, amazing beaches is all close by. The view from the rooms is amazing. The owner is nice and will help you out with whatever you want to do. Plus you get a more 'local' experience when you stay here than a resort.

All of that said, the rooms aren't amazing. There were tons of dead bugs on our canopy, the water went out for a while, they don't replace towels unless you ask, they don't have shampoo and other toiletries... Maybe a little more rustic than we expected but still a good hotel.

This hotel is on the beach, but there aren't chairs or accomodations for spending time on the beach here. We walked up to Anse Chastanet, a large resort nearby, to utilize their beach facilities.

The room here is clean and reasonably priced. Breakfast is included with the room.
The bedroom has an air-conditioner, which is wonderful.
The server who works in the evenings is very kind. Otherwise, the service is moderate. There is no concierge service and very little help in the area of scheduling excursions, etc. So, if you stay here, just know that you will be on your own as far as entertainment/sightseeing, etc.

I am a travel agent from Vancouver, Canada and visited The Still House with friends this April.
I was blown away by the incredible views from this resort.Beautiful blooming flowers abound. Excellent views of Petit Piton and Soufriere bay from our room
We stayed in a large suite, loved it, clean, comfortable bed, and loved the patio! We sat out every night and watched the Sunset from our patio. Amazing views of the Pitons, simply beautiful area, a little piece of heaven on earth. It has a very local feel, which we loved and the staff was wonderful. Air conditioned bedrooms kept the whole place cool.
The service was second to none: locally-owned and managed . Our room was cleaned and freshly prepared every day. Free wifi is available. A very nice breakfast overlooking the piton each morning was quite a treat. The atmosphere at the Still is warm, welcoming, relaxing and most enjoyable. A great base from which to explore this fantastic island. Go there, and have a wonderful holiday!
Soufriere is a charming and colorful town that is less touristy than some of its counterparts in the Caribbean and we found the people extremely friendly.
The Still Beach Hotel is located at the north end of the small town, so it was very convenient to walk the 3 blocks to town for the bank or the grocery store or the marina.
I'm looking forward to a return trip, and definitely recommend the Still to anyone.

Have stayed with wife in the Room No.3 for 4 nights. Hotel has two double rooms (Room 1 and Room 2) and three suites (Room 3, Room 4 and Room 5). The room was clean and upon arrival nicely decorated with flowers. Big LCD with cable TV in living room with kitchen and fridge. Best part of course is balcony with magnificient view. Hotel manager Donnie was always available with tips and reccommendations. Beach is nice but there were no sunbed for rent. Having breakfast with Petit Piton as a background - that is why many visitors are coming to St.Lucia. Hotel has an ample parking lot and is 10 min walking distance to center of Soufriere.
