My husband and I visited st Lucia for the first time in Jan 08. Having never been to The Carribean before we were ounsure what to expect. We didn't want the "BIG RESORT HOTEL" experience, so stayed at a small hotel, outside Soufriere called La Haute, an old plantation house beautifully restored. The pools gave fantastic views onto the Pitons- spectalular.
The staff were fantastic, and I couldn't praise the place highly enough. The area around Soufriere is gorgeous, lots to do and see. Take a trip out to sea, to see the dolphins. Visit the botantical gardens, and the Sulphur springs.
Also vist the beach and eat at Anste Chastenet. The food there is great, and the beach popular. Didn't like the Hilton Beach, very very American. Best restaurant La Dashene, again overlooking the Pitons, magical spot and food out of this world.
All in all i wholeheartedly recommend ST Lucia
Summary: Great holiday destination
