St. Lucia


Recently very special clients spent their 30th Wedding Anniversary in St. Lucia. 

They spend 6 nights at Sugar Bay and then 3 nights at Hotel Chocolate! 

They had also celebrated their 25th Wedding Anniversary at these 2 resorts in 2013.

Thank you Bill and Diane for sharing your review and photos of these beautiful resorts.


We loved our stay at Sugar Beach. Each morning we enjoyed an open air breakfast of fresh tropical fruits and other first class items. The there was no hurry. They had staff everywhere at the Resort. We never had to go searching for assistance. They assigned a private Butler to us to assist us with all our personal needs. Everyone was polite and friendly. 

Our room was very special. It was one of 96 units, all of them on the hill side or on the beach. No multi-level room complex. They had part colonial charm, part understated luxury. It was a beautiful setting to unwind at.

The Resort sits in a UNESCO World Heritage site between two mountains (Pitons).

 It has a Rainforest Spa consisting of thatched tree huts. 

The beach sand is imported, so it has some of the most pristine white sand in the Caribbean. Everything is perfectly landscaped, giving it the feel and look of a lush tropical botanical gardens. 

The food was top tier, but very pricy. Sometimes many times more than its value. This is really the main drawback. But you are paying for a one-of-a-kind location.

 Hotel Chocolat Boucan

This 14 unit Resort had an unspeakably beautiful location as well. It was higher upon the mountains and not on the beach, however, if you want to go to the beach while you are there, they have a shuttle and their own boat that they use to transport guests to the beach.

 This Resort is on a working Cocoa Plantation. The British chocolatier, Hotel Chocolate owns and operates this unique Resort. It is very stylish and has a very cool vibe. It is small, so it is very peaceful and relaxing. 

They have special tours that allow guests to learn and see how cocoa is grown and harvested and processed. We got to graft our own Cocoa tree. They mark and catalogs your tree so that if you visit again years latter you can see it producing Cocoa Pods! They also have another fascinating tour (for an extra cost) that allows you to make your own chocolate bar! 

We loved this! We learned a lot. Their restaurant is and rooms are all open! This is a wonderful experience that brings in the sounds and sights up close while you are there. It is very picturesque with, I believe, one of the world's most spectacular small pools.

Hello Denise. All went well, thanks for asking.

I had a good experience but I have a feeling I might have liked a different tour. It was very exhausting traveling and then packing the next morning on many occasions. I think I would have liked to stay in some spots longer, or maybe go to some different locations in the country. But I know that with the two or you can't do all..  our guide to take us to some good spots. Every restaurant that he chose was great.

My guide was great. He would give us a brief low-down of the town and pretty much suggest what we could do. It was our choice what we wanted to do. I spent most of the days by myself walking around the cities, but I would meet up for group dinners. We had between 14 to 16 people in the group. This to her was actually a combination of two tours.

I really liked Croatia and Montenegro the best.  Albania was interesting and Greece was nice.. next time I'll probably want to see other islands of Greece.

The transportation accommodations were fine for the low-budget tour. However I wasn't really pleased with the hostels. Maybe it's just hostels in general, but I thought many of the ones we stayed at had some issues. By the end of the trip I was ready for a regular hotel room and a decent bed.. sometimes we'd have between four to six girls and one room.

I would use G Adventures again, but I probably wouldn't do this tour at my age.  How is definitely beat by the end of the trip from consistently walking around towns and then traveling... However the age variations worked out decently

Royal Hideaway Playcar - Adults-only resort

Fun clients just returned from the Adults-Only Royal Hideway Playacar and emailed me their review:

Here is our review and some photos

We recently returned from our getaway at Royal Hideaway Playacar and had a fantastic time!  The ride from the airport went by fast, especially when we purchased our ‘dos cervezas’ from the shuttle driver.  We passed through a nice gated community with lots of people out walking the dog or stroller. Checking in was easy and we were greeted warmly.  We then waited around for a few hours for our room to be open (we got there really early) and in the meantime had some drinks and food and enjoyed the spectacular view of the ocean.  Our bags were brought to our rooms and we were given our keys.  

The rooms were terrific; clean, cool enough (we keep our home thermostat around 68), regular turn-down service, twice a day most days, refrigerator didn’t work but we didn’t care because the bar was 100 feet from our room and we had all the water we needed.  We regularly ordered room service when we had excursions that departed before restaurants opened or were just feeling lazy/inebriated and had no problems; it was always terrific.  All the restaurants at the resort were good for resort food with a few of them exceeding that standard.  I recommend the oven fired pizzas from The Deck and dinner at Palazzo.  

There are multiple nice small pools around that we never used and spent most of our time on excursions, on the beach/in the ocean, and in the large infinity pool facing the ocean.  

The bartenders and guys working the pool and ocean area were on top of things!  

There were making us or bringing us drinks as needed or nachos on the beach.  The resort is very laid back and skews towards an older crowd.  We’re in our early to mid 30’s and were looking for a little more activity within the resort; namely sand volleyball (or water vb which isn’t provided) which we only managed to wrangle enough people for on one day. 

 The resorts on either side looks crowded and bustling but this place was very relaxed.  If you want to lay around and drink and eat and legitimately relax on your vacation this is a great spot with a small footprint that makes getting around the resort easy. 

We never experienced a shortage of towels or any problems with dinner reservations that I’ve seen others comment on.  This was a terrific place and we’ll likely return.
