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.
Fond Doux is a hotel in the middle of the rainforest. 10 or so bungalows built into the side of the hills, it's a very unique property. The employees are some of the friendliest hotel employees we've ever encountered. Breakfast and parking are included. WiFi is available in the common areas but not the rooms. Be prepared to be without a tv here but that's part of the experience - being out in nature. The scenery is beautiful. Be sure to do the short trail hike that leads to a very nice view of the Pitons.

My husband and I recently stayed at Ladera while on our honeymoon and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. The entire staff was friendly and welcoming including the owner, Holly, who we ran into several times. From the moment we arrived until we left, we felt like we we had the resort to our selves which really made it feel like our own slice of paradise.The food was outstanding, although a bit expensive but definitely worth it. And of course, the best part of our stay was our room and the magnificent view of the piton mountains. My jaw literally dropped when we stepped into our room for the first time. We were so transfixed with the view that we hardly left our room. The private plunge pool was great, refreshing but not too cool. We didn't have a problem with bugs, barely saw any aside from the moths at night if you left the lights on too long. The frogs are loud at night but that never bothered us. You get used to the sounds of the forest pretty quickly. Overall, we were very sad to leave at the end of our stay and highly recommend this resort especially for anyone who loves being surrounded by nature.
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.
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.
