Right off the start Dora and michael made us feel right at home. Any questions about town, hotel,excursions, or any other questions they would help with. Before we left home, I wanted to know about the Friday night street party (jump) in Gros Inlet, Dora gave very accurate info.
The restaurant serves great food, mornings we would have bacon and eggs, pancakes, fruit plate, basket of croissants, orange juice, and coffee/tea. The dinner we had was creole chicken and beef.
If you are on a budget would suggest getting the rate that includes the dinner as it can be expensive to eat in Soufriere.
It has been said before but the previous review proves it needs to be repeated again, the hotel heats its water by the sun, so you will have hot water for bathing and washing hands from the early afternoon on, and luke warm water in the morning. Hotel is on a hill (as you can see from the pictures) so if you do not have a car you will be walking up and down it (we had a car and we still walked back and forth for the first four days). There is numerous stairs, so if you are impaired, this hotel is not for you. The pool is being replaced by a new hot tub, pool and sunning area (away from the cruise ship lunch crowd.
The rooms are plain, with A/C, tv, ( WI FI in restaurant) no phone, safe in office. bathroom has shower.
The week before we came to the Villa we had been staying at the Calabash Cove Resort, and before we left home had made arrangements with Dora for a rental car to be dropped off athe hotel, which it was. Drove from Gros Inlet to Soufriere, which I found thrilling and my better half found nerve racking.
There are numerous restaurants in Soufiere, two of the ones we liked are Gees which is right across the road from the hotel and down the bank, and the Petit Piton Cafe on the ocean by the dock where the cruise ships land (be sure to try their salt fish acora and the banana crumble)
We loved Dora, Michael, the staff, and location so much we are going back December 2010
