We are going to Soufriere in December for about 10 days and we'd like to rent an apartment instead of staying in a hotel. I have contacted several properties from VRBO, but was wandering if anyone had any other suggestions for looking for accommodations. We are also open to staying at an affordable hotel. Any ideas?
We will be traveling to St Lucia May 11th thru 19th and staying in the Soufriere area (Jalousie Plantation or the Anse Chastanet). I've been reading about the area and gathering information but haven't found answers to these questions:
1. Are either of these resorts worth the money?
2. Is this area busy in May? (beach area)
3. SOme resorts offer up to a200 per day meal credit. Does200 go far or would one p/u groceriesen route to supplement?
4. Are most of the resort restaurants buffets or what they serve you get?
5. Are most causual dress for dining?
6. I was told to take a shuttle from airport (UVF) to resort THEN rent a car. Resort person stated these resorts are remote and hard to find. Does this sound true and once at resort, can I easily rent a car from there at a decent price?
Thank you ahead of time and any other advise would be great:)
We arrive at Hewanorra Airport on a Sunday afternoon in January. Can anyone recommend an inexpensive way to get to our guesthouse in Soufriere? We have been told there is no pubic transportation on Sundays and will need to hire a taxi, since we are not planning to rent a car for our 12-day stay. Also, suggestions for activities during our visit will be appreciated. The hot spring, botanical garden, street dances, and of course the beach sound inviting. Thanks for your recommendations.
Has anyone stayed at the Hummingbird Resort? We are staying there next week. We are staying in the 2bed/bath Cottage. Has anyone stayed in it?
One more question. Should we rent a car for the week?
Been doing research on St. Lucia anticipating an extended business stay. Sounds like being gay anywhere in St. Lucia is something best kept to one's self if merely for purposes of self preservation. Seems like I should just keep to myself, get my work done, and get out. Anyone with any personal experience who can offer advice?
My fiance and I are looking to travel to St. Lucia in the late fall. We were looking at two hotels, Anse Chastanet and the Hilton. Can anyone recommend either place. Is no air conditioning a big issue in St. Lucia? The might make a the difference in booking.
My wife and I are considering a trip in late June/early July-- We are wondering , since it is the beginning of the rainy season if we will have many partly cloudy days/ overcast the majority of the time or wil there still be plenty of sunshine with small rain burst with the sun returning. Appreciate any help with this question. Thank You, Lou
