Pros: The accomodation was superb....very clean and comfortable and the staff really welcoming. The location was excellent. You really felt like you were in the heart of the rainforest. The individual cottages felt very private although all the facilities were close at hand.
Cons: The evening meal menu was not very varied and did not really change much from night to night.

Pros: This hotel was so different than anywhere we have stayed before. The natural environment was beautiful and pure. You can relax with a cocktail or take an energetic guided tour at the end see beautiful unspoiled views of beautiful St Lucia and the magnificent Pitons. Sit by the pool or sit quietly at your cottage and take a dip in your own dip pool. (Bliss). The staff attentive and helpful Food amazing. We enjoyed it so much we went back with a group of 16 family members for lunch the following week. Cant wait to visit again but for much longer. Wonderfuil

Pros: We had only a one-night stay, so our experience was rather short-lived, but: the staff was prompt, friendly, and inviting. As expected, the views from our cottage were postcard-like, and there was no other-guest noises or distractions. The restaurant and breakfast (two venues) were excellent.
Cons: A noted "green" property, the grounds were somewhat overgrown along walkways. I can't say it was a negative, just an observation.

Pros: My husband and I spent 2 nights at Fond Doux to celebrate our wedding anniversary. What struck me about Fond Doux was the fact that we were out doors without being impacted by insects. Fond Doux have put a lot of enthasis on conserving the environment by allowing guests to enjoy and respect it without it become an outdoor camping stay. The staff were outstanding, facilities clean and well maintained. We stayed in a honeymoon cottage with private plung pool and outdoor shower which were the highlight of our stay. The cottages are privately tucked away in the beauty and density of the rain forest making it a truly mind blowing experience. Did I mention the FOOD wow, buffet breakfast hit the spot but lunch and dinner were just delicious and reasonably priced. Admittedly the lunch portions could easily pass for dinner which is great if your having an early night. We will definitely stay at Fond Doux
