“Stunning Hotel with breathtaking views. Perfect honeymoon destination”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 via mobile

Cap Maison is a beautiful hotel hidden away in the extreme north of the island.

Our room was a two story villa with a hot tub on the balcony and incredible views of Smugglers Bay and the most beautiful sunset you could ever imagine. Other rooms had the option of private and even rooftop pools.

The restaurant serves superb food, morning, noon and night, and is situated on a cliff, overlooking the Caribbean Sea. The two pools are perfect for couples looking to unwind and relax again overlooking the vast sea. Smugglers Bay is a secluded beach area with free activities as well as a small restaurant and bar, which serves amazing cocktails all day.

The staff were beyond polite and helpful every minute of our stay there, and my wife and I would return in a heartbeat if we had a chance to.

It truly is a paradise on a stunningly beautiful island.

My wife and I's honeymoon to St. Lucia was capped off with 4 nights at Cap Maison on the north side of the island. Before I get into too much detail, there wasn't a negative thing about this place! Our room was the first floor of a 3 story villa, complete with living room, dinning room, breakfast nook, kitchen, washer/dryer, huge bedrom and bathroom, outdoor patio and L pool! We are told that guests can rent the entire villa, and we plan on making another trip with 2 other couples in the future!

The food was excellent, and service was impeccable. While we were there, the Olympics were starting, and we wanted to dine in to watch. After requesting all our meals be brought in all at once so we would not inconvenience the staff, the matre' de demanded (nicely of course) that they bring each course to us in our room (b/c it would get cold). Also, the restaurant was literally 30 ft from the restaurant entrance, so we opened our back doors, and a server brought each course of our 4 cours dinner right to our dining room table so we could watch the opening ceremonies! Never expected that level of service!

Their private beach, Smuggler's Cove, was also really cool. Guests can rent snorkling gear, and other things to swim and float in the enclosed beach area, and a full bar is there for drinks. I decided to snorkle, and saw tons of tropical fish, all within 50 ft of the shore.

We will definitely be going back!

Cap Maison is a fantastic hotel, with warm and welcoming owners and staff. Nestled on a beautiful cliff top location and with a relaxing secluded beach, I could not recommend it more strongly.

I will forever have fond memories of this hotel. Whether it was having breakfast in the beautiful restaurant with its breathtaking views out over the sea or wandering through the beautiful gardens, this hotel really is idyllic.

If you have the opportunity to visit the beautiful island of St Lucia and satay here - do. You will make fantastic memories that will last a lifetime.

We came here for our honeymoon and booked the villa with jacuzzi, they are huge 3 story houses of great quality.

Excellent staff, the view is tremendous of the sea

My only concern would be if it wasn't our honeymoon the venue is a little out of the way and is quiet but if you want that sort of holiday (which we did on this occasion) you will not be disappointed here

I stayed here on business, but it was a great stay. The location, accommodations, staff and restaurant were all perfect. Judging by the happy holiday makers it is also a perfect vacation choice. I would highly recommend this hotel.

We had excellent help from BA's David K in planning a one week family holiday and actually got more for our money in the Carribean than some of the spots we had been looking at in the Med. We were looking to cover everybodies needs; a great beach, sea views and somewhere close by for a couple of rounds of golf. We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis and hired a car. This was probably a good decision for us because the hotel is rather secluded. The hotel restaurant is in a beautiful spot, we enjoyed our breakfasts there everyday overlooking the sea and the sevice was excellent. The restaurant was probably a bit too 'fine dining' in the evening for the boys so we enjoyed the hotel's Naked Fishernam restaurant on the beach (very good quality, completely relaxed and flexible to trade when the boys didn't fancy the razor clams but only available 3 nights a week) and otherwise went out and about at night to Rodney Bay. Overall the beach was almost perfect; sandy, easy to get in and out of the sea, kayaks, paddle boards, hobbycat all freely available and felt private, even if it wasn't. No hawkers. Could have done with a couple more umbrellas, otherwise ideal. My husband and I had our room upgraded on arrival. The boys had a garden room but spent more time in our suite which was nice because we certainly had the space. The hotel grounds were very well kept and the staff friendly and helpful. The hotel has a good rate at the nearby golf course (pick up included). We chartered a yatch for the day through the hotel (not the hotel's speed boat) and had a brilliant day (the trip included tickets to the mud baths, volcano and Botanical Gardens in Soufriere and the taxi). We had been told the best way to see the island was from the sea - it was great advice. Perfect for a one week vacation. Everybody happy.

We recently stayed here on part of our island hopping trip through the Caribbean...

Postives:
Our room was amazing after seeing pictures and requesting a specific room we were treated to a room which had a full kitchen, lounge area, large on-suite bathroom and a awesome roof top terrace with private swimming pool, hammock and sun loungers.

The Naked Fisherman Beach bar is the best thing about Cap Maison, the staff that cook are amazing and the food that is presented to you shows this exact quality. The atmosphere is festive and relaxed, exactly what you would expect on a beach holiday in the Caribbean.

The beach is public but is situated down 90 steps from Cap Maison so not many locals venture down. There are sun loungers and water sports and it is very peaceful and relaxing down there.

Staff members that made our stay enjoyable and memorable need a special mention. To Vanilla, Kimbo, Pernel and all the chefs at the Naked Fisherman, To Dunston and Deshay that run the water sporting activities you guys are amazing! Thank you to Allison, Chris and Imran at The Cliff restaurant. Kristal at reservations who made every effort to ensure we had all our requests met and finally Jasmine the duty manager was friendly and helpful.

Negatives:
As we were on the all inclusive package we were limited to only ordering wine by the glass. This wouldn't have been a problem if the wines were of a standard which you would expect at a 4/5 star hotel/resort There was only one half decent red wine on the menu. Having travelled to many places and come from a country that has decent wine for reasonable prices this was very disappointing as Cap Maison pride themselves on their wine selection however we felt time this was not the case with wines by the glass. The wine choice down at the beach bar was even worse so we were limited to only drinking cocktails which can become a little boring after 7 days.
ALL INCLUSIVE IS A BIG NO IF YOUR A WINE DRINKER!!

The other very unfortunate thing about Cap Maison is that the beach bar is only open Sunday to Wednesday from 10:00 - 16:00. From Thursday to Saturday it is open in the evenings as well. We would have much preferred spending our evenings watching the sunset and having dinner down on the beach where the food was delicious and the staff amazing. Limiting guests to only one restaurant in the evening 4 nights of the week should be changed. Also all water sports and beach loungers are packed up each day at 16:00. If the beach bar and water sports are not able to be open every night then they should at least let guest enjoy these facilities until the sun sets each day!!!

The Cliff Restaurant was relaxed at breakfast times however at night it turns into a more fine dining experience so a dress code is required. As we were on a island hopping adventure this came as a surprise to us and unfortunately put a damper on things as we did not pack any closed shoes or smart clothes.

In the bedroom the mattress was old and needed replacing as one side had a large hole in it when you lay on the bed.

We did not realize the rooms you stay in are not owned by the hotel but by private investors.FYI.
