Let's get the negatives out of the way, you must enjoy the outdoors to enjoy this location; there are no air-conditioned rooms and the driveway to Anse Chastanet leaves much to be desired (2 km of slow driving over rocky, rough surface).
The natural beauty was fabulous. The service was like "Chick-fil-a on steroids". There were no problems even when there actually was a challenge. The staff always found a way to accommodate our wants.
The food was delicious, somewhat unique, never heavy. Meals were joyfully satisfying, and surprisingly private. Traditional drinks were prepared correctly; specialty drinks were worth the taste.
The beach was private (maybe because of the time of year, September). We did not see more than 4 other couples in our beach area. Beach chairs were easy to find and very comfortable. There were hammocks, hiking trails, bikes, paddle-boards, boats, and various tours to enjoy. Snorkeling was good. Sailing was wonderful. The evening views (sun sets) were spectacular from the mountain.
Evening entertainment was typical of the Caribbean: certainly enjoyable, though not comparable to New York City. If you don't like the music, try tomorrow, it will be different.
If was our favorite Caribbean location. We can't wait to return to Anse Chastanet, or, possibly, Jade Mt, their sister hotel.
The Jade Mountain is a one of a kind resort with exceptionally friendly and professional staff. I can not think of anything negative about Jade Mountain. This hotel has it all! Even its own farm where they organically grow everything for the restaurant.

St. Lucia was a very very nice visit/vacation of all we have taken together. My wife and I enjoy to the upmost! We saw the sights of the local area near the hummingbird hotel in our 6days stay. Well Melvin "Baby-Shaq" had more to show us, but I was just ready to relax and just enjoy the wonderful view from the beach that I could walk to from my room at the hummingbird, everyday. We spent so much time on the beach that we didn't realize how sunburnt we were until returning home. Enjoyed this place! Get with "baby-Shaq"! He will even take you on farther island adventures. Oh! don't come here during April timeframe for "Holiday Period" if you are a clubber, because dance clubs were close.
This was our first trip to St. Lucia and we wanted to make sure that we stayed in a nice place but be near the local people to get a true feel of the island. Our wish surely came true. This is not a hoity-toity hotel that caters to the tourist that wants to stay onsite and get every need met. This place is nice, clean, very friendly with helpful staff. The beach is right there. The locals do swim with you but do not bother you. Petite Piton is right in front of you and all of the natural sites are in Soufriere. Many people come down from the Northern hotels and cruise ships for day excursions to this town.
We went snorkeling, hiking, saw diamond falls, went to the Sulphur Springs, had a private tour on David's family's plantation, toured the entire island, and went swimming every day. We did not rent a car. Trevor picked us up and dropped us off at the airport and drove us around the island, Thomas was a great guide that took care of us everyday doing close-by excursions, we took a water taxi to go snorkeling. Talk to David about your plans and he will connect you with good people that will ensure you have a great experience without a huge cost.
Breakfast was included every morning. We had a good breakfast with fresh fruit, great coffee and a smiling Kendra.
Would definitely go back to the island and stay at the Still Beach House.

The location is spectacular. Best views! We loved the stay. We felt very safe in our private villa.The best part of the villa is that it is private, not connected to any other villa. The villa was a full house with kitchen, bedroom, living room bath.

we were delighted to learn that we were staying in a large apartment guesthouse rather than a hotel. the apartment had a large kitchen with all the necessary utensils so we could prepare most of our meals, saving restaurant meals as a special treat. the owners were very hospitable and made us feel quite welcome. the wrap around balcony was great for enjoying our coffee in the mornings and drinks or tea in the evenings. the sound of the river and rustle of the leaves of the surrounding rainforest was relaxing and beautiful.
We spent our honeymoon here and would not have changed anything!! The service was exceptional!! The food was great at each of the restaurants. We did not get to the Cane Bar until our 3rd day and was pleasantly surprised of the decor and detail to perfection.
Our poolside matron Caroline was the greatest she kept the drinks coming and they were good.
We stayed in the Grand Luxury Villa and had the best view of the resort. We had a view of the beach and both of the majestic Pitons on either side. When we return we will request to stay at the same villa.
