We visited there from 3/25 thru 4/3.. We were afraid it was going to be awful because of the reviews on trip advisor. . But it was a really beautiful vacation. We stayed in a beach side room. .. totally worth it! The room was so nice and so close to the beach. The restaurants were all great! We visited the buffet and the Asian, Italian, and waterside. The food was excellent! Jasminder, at the waterside was so nice and friendly. I don't remember the waitress at the Asian place but she was great too.. As was the bartender, Bryan. All of the guys at the water sports area were friendly and helpful. The grounds were beautiful. So lush and colorful. We met some other vacationers, who also read trip advisor, and were going to cancel bc of the bad reviews .. But were glad they didn't.
For those of you who are worried about leaving the grounds and driving around the island. .. don't be afraid. I did it.im 43. I normally drive in the states. But got used to the other side of the car and street pretty quick. The streets are twisty and turney and it takes a while to get anywhere but it was worth it. For the most part everyone outside of the resort was friendly. There are beggers &they can be pretty aggressive but. . Every County I've visited has had beggers. (Except maybe Australia). In conclusion... St Lucia is GORGEOUS. GO THERE NOW! ! And SMUGGLERS COVE... was perfect. Best vacation ever! !
