Absolutely Terrific Vacation
My wife asked me not to write a review as she wants to keep it a secret for us for future visits. :) After 45+ years in business, tough to keep a secret. I'll sum it up quickly: service, facilities, restaurants (combined with Jade Mtn.) and location are all world class. Each staff member goes out of their way to make you feel welcomed and enjoy your stay. This is first beach resort we plan to return to...hopefully every year or so.
Our second visit to this resort and as enjoyable as the first two years ago. What makes this place special is how nice all of the staff from maintenance to the owners.Once again the food was excellent at both venues and the grounds and beaches well kept. The dive shop on the grounds had great trips and instructors for beginners to certified patrons. Snorkeling in the underwater park on site was such fun as were the tours and lectures by locals. Even the mountain bike adventure was enjoyable if you are that energetic. You can’t go wrong if you choose Anse Chastanet.
Somewhere so very special .....
I have to start by saying that we have never stayed anywhere before that made us feel like they cared about making our stay so memorable ....so thank you so much as it will stay with us for ever ... Personal touches everywhere - the delicious banana bread and rum in your room... the turn down service with evening reading cards.But even when we left at 5.30am to get our plane we couldn’t believe it to find they had packed us up a breakfast to take with us.... We picked Anse C as a place to get married as anyone we had spoken to had said what a magical place it is. We were on a budget as much as one is on a wedding but we had limits with all the additional costs that mount up so we booked a standard room. We could not believe it when we found the hotel had upgraded us to the famous room 7F! Wow.... what a view .... what a stunning room and way beyond our means so heartfelt thanks again - we admit that our room was better than my Mum and Dads who were in Jade! I cannot complement the staff enough - just so friendly and helpful and of course we have to personally thank Jonathan for all his help and care as well as his fabulous tennis lesson. Also of course Jonelle - thank you for making our wedding run so beautifully and dealing so smoothly with the challenges of certain family members with poor health and thus mobility issues. You made everything come together without any stress. If anyone is thinking of getting married at Anse C then Anse Mamine is absolutely stunning and yes feels virtually private as so few people go over there - it is magical....plus the burgers are as good as people say! I would also recommend Bernd the wedding photographer- we hate our photographs being taken but somehow with his laid back no fuss approach we have some wonderful photos to cherish of a beautiful day ! As for the food at Anse it is some of the best we have tasted in the Caribbean - we never made it to the Treehouse restaurant as couldn’t tear ourselves away from the restaurant by the beach .... Hope in years to come to return to this wonderful hotel Thank you again P and J
So thankful I found this place
I spent many hours reviewing websites and reading reviews. My wife and I picked this place out of all of them, and we were so happy to celebrate our anniversary here. When we read other reviews, most of the negative ones focus on value. We felt that we received great value compared to other places we have stayed at. Food The food was wonderful and beautiful. We had the MAP and were very happy with the choices. The menu has a few options that change every day that keeps things exciting. We went during this chocolate week, and I had lion fish starter, drunken chocolate tacos, duck breast in a chocolate sauce, and a chocolate desert for one of my dinners. They paired it with wines. It was the best meal I have ever had. We had the same server almost every night, and it made it very personal. Service We thought the service was great. Our house keeper took good care of our room and did a special flower arrangement for our anniversary. There was also a turn down service which set up our room at night. Oliver came by every morning while we were on the beach. He brought towels and sprayed us with a eucalyptus spray. He also helped us use the paddle boards for the first time. All the non-motorized activities were included with our stay. Beach The beach was beautiful. It is the Carribean side, so the waves are a lot more calm. There wasn't too many people there and there wasn't that much water traffic. They also had a beach in the next anse which is connected. We walked but they had a water taxi. Excursions We did the rum mixology which was a lot of fun. A bartender mixed different flavors with chocolate and locally made rum. We also climbed Gros Piton, which was really steep, but it was cool to look out over the island when we got to the top. St Lucia It was a nice place to visit. There were a lot of things to do. The people were a lot nicer than other places I have traveled to. If we get another chance to go soon, we will definitely go back.
Beautiful location, helpful staff
My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon. Great snorkeling, although we would recommend getting up early before too many people scare away the fish. Pay attention to the fine print for the rooms, not all of them have Air Conditioning. Most of them have “natural air flow” which is not AC. That would be the only “negative” about this place. The views were amazing, water was great, food was awesome, drinks are good, staff was very nice.
