"Can this be the ultimate hotel for a vacation? Yes"
Imagine in your mind's eye a cocoa (cacao) plantation hard by a rainforest. Now merge all into a botanical garden filled with exotic flowering plants including orchids, tropical fruit trees, a gorgeous colonial plantation house, paths with natural beauty at every turn leading to charming private cabins. Add two outstanding restaurants with quality St. Lucian cuisine and fine musical entertainment on some evenings, a three tiered pool with falls surrounded by lush plantings, seeing how chocolate is made and colorful birds and butterflies. The icing on the cake are the sincerely friendly staff and convivial owners. All are competent, helpful and kind. They anticipate every need.
How could I forget the essentials: room, spotlessly clean, comfortable bed, fine outdoor shower, free shuttle to pretty Sugar Beach with its excellent snorkeling and view of the twin Piton peaks. Spend some time at romantic Fond Doux, meet the wonderful people of St. Lucia and renew your body and soul. Stress will vanish instantly.

We went for our honey to the Ladera resort. I love the room (Hilltop room) that we had, It was the open concept with ocean view. The pool at room was amazing. I love the staff, they are really nice, friendly and respectful. I would defiantly recommend the hotel to people who want to have a romantic trip.
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.
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.
