Great stay - but oh! those steps!

Posted 12-Jan-2017
Pros: Its uniqueness and dive facility on the beach.
Cons: Maybe a gondola from the beach to the hillside rooms (LOL!) but other than that, I can think of nothing.
Location: St. Lucia is not a party island and outside of the resort, there isn't a lot of night life (that I knew of). There are some wonderful land excursions.
We planned a Christmas family (3) holiday in the Caribbean and since we had never been to St. Lucia, decided on Anse Chastanet. It was expensive (for us anyway), but worth the cost. We are a scuba diving family and this resort had a 5 star PADI facility(Scuba St. Lucia) right on the beach. Anse Chastanet resort has several beachside cottages/rooms, but we chose to stay in one of the hillside rooms with a view of the Pitons. The room itself, and the bathroom, was very spacious with an open floor plan; a king size bed and a full size (for my 27 year old son) bed did not diminish the size. There is a sitting area inside and a terrace. We stayed in room 7A, about half way up the hill. We counted the steps to the beach - 263! Going down is not difficult, and shuttle vans are available at the beach to take you back up. Excellent dive facility and wonderful dive sites. I would highly recommend getting a meal plan. We purchased an MAP plan (breakfast & dinner) and were so glad we did as the meal prices are high. Every one of the staff were pleasant and accommodating. For those of you worried about insects, insect repellant is provided in each room although we weren't bothered by any at all - the beachside is surrounded by foliage and forest, so you might need it more. The staff can set up and schedule land excursions to the mud baths, botanical gardens & waterfall, and the Tet Paul trail. There may be others but since we were only there for 5 days, we did all 3 in one day .

Very nice hotel and staff

Posted 1-Jan-2017
Pros: The views are spectacular and the beaches were not very crowded at all.
Cons: Although they offered a free shuttle, travel from the beach to some of the restaurants was about 100 stair steps which can be tiring when climbing up.
While travel to and from the island was a nightmare for us, the stay at the hotel Turned out to be very nice. We would definitely recommend this place and we may very well be coming back in the future.

Great Hotel

Posted 29-Nov-2016
Pros: I liked everything at this hotel except there is no air-conditioning in the room.
Cons: Everything was great except not having air-conditioning in the room.
Location: There are 2 beaches. Boat shuttle provided to/from 2nd beach. Plantation tour at other beach was very nice. Offer a complimentary tour of Jade.
The views of the Pitons and beach from the room were fabulous. The food and drinks at all of the restaurants were great. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The 2 beaches were beautiful except that it rained for 2 of 2 1/2 days I was there. Boat shuttle provided to/from 2nd beach. Plantation tour at other beach was very nice.

Absolutely magical!!

Posted 1-Nov-2016
Pros: Beach, staff, food, facilities, views, and everything else!
Cons: Nothing
Location: Location is perfect, its out of the way and completely private. The sulfur springs and mud baths are so much fun!
Anse Chastenet is the definition of a hidden gem. The staff is incredible, the food is out of this world and the facilities are simply outstanding. The property is one of a kind and the private beach is so beautiful and has some of the best snorkeling in St Lucia! I would recommend this property to everyone!

Honeymoon of a lifetime

Posted 26-Sep-2016
I was beyond happy with my stay at Anse Chastanet. I've been very lucky to travel to many places around the world, and my stay at Anse Chastanet tops the list. Breathtaking views, stunning facilities, the best of the best food, and the most wonderful staff. From the moment you arrive, you are made to feel at home with a refreshing drink. You are treated to chocolates, surprised with champagne to celebrate our honeymoon, to rum drinks and banana bread treats, you truly are spoiled in the heart of St. Lucia. My wife and I chose to celebrate our honeymoon here because they don't have TVs, AC, and other moder technology...we picked a place of a lifetime where we grew even closer because of our stay here. Between the unbelievable beaches, food, completely open rooms overlooking the Caribbean Sea and Pitons, and again the staff, make this your home for as long as you wish to travel. We will ABSOLUTELY be going back again. Btw...the yoga was also the best I've ever had. Well done, Anse Chastanet...you created a memory of a lifetime for us!

Great Hotel, But Know What You're Getting Into!

Posted 7-Sep-2016
Pros: Customer service, breath-taking views, great balconies, awesome and different experience in nature. My group had four different rooms - all amazing.
Cons: Beds and sheets could be comfier, food is great but more variety should be introduced. They were really good about customizing food options though.
Location: You are on a mountain so traveling by land is a little difficult. Water taxi is best. Joy's Adventure Excursion is a great outside tour to do!
Awesome hotel. However, it is imperative that you do your research and know what you're getting yourself into before you book! This is a four star hotel but it is not like the plush resorts you'll find in Punta Cana, Cancun, etc. This hotel is in the middle of rainforest on a mountain. Everything is far apart and you will have to walk! The rooms are along the mountain on hilltops or at the bottom on the beach. You'll have to climb many stairs to get to the reception, dining areas, beach, other rooms, etc. The hotel does have a shuttle service which you can call in advance and they are pretty quick and efficient. That's what we did and we had no issues. Most rooms don't have A/C. We accidentally booked a room without. We were lucky enough that management worked with us and changed our reservations but this typically does not happen. It is very hot during the day but cool at night. We would turn off the A/C around 3am-5am because we would get cold. It rains a lot but the showers pass. We had friends in the A/C-less rooms and they were fine. The meal plan is absolutely worth it. The food is very good. I wish they switched up the breakfast menu as it got tiring after a bit. The dinner menu changes with some stuff staying the same. I feel there could've been more food choices which is why I rated the hotel a 4 not a 5. Make sure to eat outside of the resort once in a while. Lastly, the customer service is honestly one of the best I've ever experienced.
