Bel Jou Hotel eptiomizes the quintessential Caribbean experience, tucked away on a verdant mountain in the midst of a tropical utopia. The vantage point from its location provides an outstanding view of Castries and the sparkling Caribbean Sea with the island of Martinique glimmering in the distance. This adults-only scenic oasis offers the warmest of welcomes and the dedication of the long-term staff offering the best in St. Lucian hospitality.
We had a lovely stay at the Bel Jou earlier this year, and being some of the last guests at the hotel before it was closed, we were so appreciative of the amazing staff who did everything they could to make our stay the best it could possibly be (particularly in light of the COVID situation which was obviously really troubling for all of those working at the hotel, as well as for guests who were worried about making it home). The staff are a credit to the hotel and really made the experience for us.
On top of this the food was varied and delicious, (we liked the a la carte option) and the free shuttle to the beach was a nice touch too! Would say the beach that the shuttle takes you to is nice enough but nothing special (we didn’t get the opportunity to visit other beaches). However for those wanting to be close to the town, or on a beachfront I would note that the hotel is quite far up into the hills (a very steep walk from the town). Not an issue for us as we like exploring and venturing out but appreciate it might be for some people. The grounds of the hotel are also quite small for those who like to wonder around and explore (it has more of a boutique feel), although they are beautifully kept! The views out over Castries and overlooking the sea are also amazing, as well as the sunsets.
All in all a lovely stay and we can only thank all the wonderful staff for being so friendly and attentive!

Cant fault this hotel from start to finish. Staff excellent, food high quality, breakfast omelette cooked in front of you to your requirements and ingredients, this a place to just relax in wonderful settings. The hotel even has it's own garden, well attended with all veg, fruits and herbs marked so you can see what's growing. Evening entertainment very good, really didnt want to leave. Dean, you manage a marvellous hotel and hopefully now this horrid virus is disappearing I hope you welcome many more visitors to this great hotel on a truly beautiful island.
