We spent a week at this hotel in January 2013. We wanted to stay in the Soufriere area close to all the attractions Saint Lucia has but the all inclusive resorts in the area were well outside our budget. We contacted Dora via email and made all the arrangements. We stayed in the Soleil Coucher room which was very large with a big 4 poster bed, large deck with breathtaking views, a kitchenette with a fridge and a large bathroom. The hotel was very quiet when we were there with only one other family actually staying there. We had breakfast included and the Saint Lucian breakfast and is highly recommended - but remember to order it the day before you would like to have it. The hotel is perched above Soufriere with amazing views of the Pitons and the bay. It hosts 2 or 3 great patio's that were extremely comfortable to sit with unobstructed views with a drink in the late afternoons. Each day we explored a different beach which was fantastic.
We ate dinner here twice (having to let them know in the morning) and it was very good and private. We ate the remaining dinners at the Hummingbird at the bottom of the hill on the beach which was fantastic.
Apparently the hotel hosts large tour groups for lunch every day that some visitors list as disruptive but we never even noticed them. We were gone every day to surrounding beaches and attractions so never saw anyone other than the 1 family also staying at the hotel.
The only drawbacks we noted were the lack of hot water consistently for showers and also the lack of the shuttle they advertise. We were told that we could arrange a shuttle easily for transport back up the hill from town but it was not always easy to reach them or arrange. We walked back up the hill quite a few times which was a hearty walk but very tiring after some long days.
We would definitely stay here again on a return to the area.
