"Absolute Must For Bucket List"
From the moment we arrived we were treated with such graciousness and warmth--the manager, Daniel, presented us with cool minted towels, a mango spritzer, and then showed us to a room that took my breath away--open air looking out to the Pitons rising up from the bay, iridescent-tiled pool, sea-breezes wafting through the room, elegant yet casual furniture. All of the staff knew our names, and made us feel completely relaxed and welcome from the very moment we got out of the car. They have a butler system for serving guests--I can't say enough about our butler, Felliner, who not only made my husband's birthday extraordinary, but took care of all of our whims.
After the first night, we were upgraded (we didn't ask for it, couldn't imagine wanting either better than the room we already had), and we were just giddy about how amazing the Galaxy suite is--2 sides open, so we had views of the Pitons, Soufriere bay AND the Caribbean. If you're concerned about the open walls, don't be--they've anticipated every potential discomfort and taken care of it. The bed has mosquito netting, they give the room a spray at dusk (we were always at dinner, so never knew until I asked). They provide earplugs, if the sounds of the birds and tree frogs bother you. That's unlikely though, since the sounds of the water falling over the negative edge of the pool provide lovely white noise. After a day on the beach, we'd take a dip in our pool every evening.
I recommend the all-inclusive option
