      • My husband I had the pleasure of visiting the Foud Doux Plantation in January 2017. First and foremost, the people that worked there made you feel at home and cared for. The grounds and vegetation was magnificent. The views were so lush and the rooms gave you a feeling of what the place may have felt like in the past. The plantation is about 250 years old and they are considered an ECO Hotel. They grow lots of different types of fruits and vegetables that they use in their onsite restaurant to cook. The food is very good and tasty. While staying there you will see the owners who will make the effort to come up and personally greet you. The hotel also offers a very generous complimentary breakfast with eggs cooked your way, fresh baked breads and cakes, bacon, fresh fruit, pan cakes, french toast, juices, coffee, local dishes and much more..... Last but not least we must say that what stood out the MOST was upon the last day of our stay my husband came down with a sinus infection and we had to fly back to the US the next day. We spoke to one of the employees who immediately went to the hotel Manager and she immediately had their grounds driver Denis personally take us to the doctor in town. He was very courteous and walked us right up the the town physician and then waited for us to finish. Then took us to the pharmacy and got our meds. We were so touched by their kindness. No extra charges. Then the next day we were supposed to check out by 11am but they allowed us to stay in the room since no one booked it for that day so my husband could rest until the taxi came for us to go to the airport. We give high marks for their service and kindness. Their prices are very reasonable as well. We had a wonderful stay!
      • Enjoyed our stay. The food was good and staff mostly friendly and helpful. Cottages, with the plunge pool, set against the hillside were spectacular. Tour of the plantation and views well worth the effort. Spa treatments needed a little more effort.
      • To do while in St Lucia. Nice walk up with a view on the Pitons and cool garden. Although, if you wish to learn about cacao, it's not the right place. This is more about fruits, plants and gardens.
      • We ate a nice buffet lunch and had a short tour as part of another excursion
      • It was more than I imagined. The shrubs and flowers although impeccably manicured still gave the feeling of nature at its finest exuberance. The quiet privacy of our cottage was just what we needed. The cuisine and bar were world class and the service was attentive without being intrusive.
