The location is exceptional- the views make it worth the visit. However the facility is a bit dated and there is no beach front accessibility with comprable 5 star amenities. The staff is very friendly and sweet though not the most informed about getting around the area. Breakfast and lunch are delicious. Dinner is overpriced and the menu is very limited with little seafood options- surprising on a caribbean island.
Fond Doux was just what we were looking for! It's a quiet gem tucked away in the mountains but also very close to Sugar beach, other resorts, many natural island attractions and the local town of Soufriere. It was easy to take a taxi where ever we wanted with the help of the front desk staff setting up our transportation. Everyone was very friendly. The grounds of the plantation are beautiful and well kept. We stayed in the 1 bedroom African Tulip Cottage and it was very comfortable for my husband and I. We will definitely be back and would recommend this resort to others!

I had a deluxe bedroom facing the city. Taking in the view from the balcony was nice -- The city and the old church with mountains in the back drop.
Don't expect too much from the actual room (#2). A mini fridge, bathroom, tv, A\C. There were two beds. One was a double, the other a king. The box spring on the double was broken. I almost fell off when I say down on it! I wasn't expecting much, and wasn't disappointed; It was just a place with a roof over my head.
The reception staff was above and beyond accommodating and always friendly.
the staff in the restaurant area was unbelievably slow. They were friendly and helpful, but at one point, we saw no one in the restaurant area for 20 minutes. It was disappointing.
the view is wonderful! The pool was clean!
The beach access is public, so be prepared to be accosted by locals to buy something, donate money or take an excursion with them. They ALL come up to you.
I had an un-air conditioned room, which we chose. It was what we expected. They do have tall floor fans in those rooms, so it was not unbearable. There is a mosquito net over the bed, but we did still get bit up a little bit.
The bathroom could use some updating and some love. The only complaint I had about the room is that when I turned the bathroom faucet on, tiny little bugs ran out from the levers. I sprayed a ton of bug spray on them and the sink and did not see them again.
A sleepy fishing village with an emerging tourist industry on the island’s southwest coast, Soufriere boasts several attractions. Among them include Sulphur Springs, a “drive-in” volcano, the Diamond Botanical Gardens with waterfall (featured in “Superman II”), historic mineral baths, and nearby black sandy beaches. South of town are the Pitons, two volcanic mountains and a World Heritage site.
