Restaurants & bars
Dragonfly offers buffet and à la carte breakfast options and a flavoursome fusion of Euro-Caribbean cuisine for dinner (reservations required) as well as weekly themed buffet nights. Enjoy tasty pizzas, pasta, grilled fish and the restaurant’s signature Moroccan roasted dorado, at Papa Don's, a Mediterranean-style tavern overlooking the ocean. Experience laid back island living at Ember's Beach Bar which offers casual lunches, barbecues and grilled dishes such as jerk chicken. The recently refurbished Upper Deck is open for dinner and offers an intimate oceanfront setting for delicious Caribbean seafood and steaks.
If you need refreshments after lounging on the beach then head to Jammers, a casual bar and grill that serves fresh and tasty options for lunch and transforms into a lively cocktail bar in the evening – complete with live calypso, reggae or steel drum music. Guests on the all inclusive meal plan can pick up a refreshing treat such as ice-cream, homemade sorbet and smoothies and at Toppers Ice Cream Shack.

Spa & wellness
Jacquot Fun Club, named after the island bird, represents colour, artistic flair and a safe, secure environment for young guests. With supervised activities (ages 4-12) and fun island games, the knowledgeable and qualified staff will keep the little ones busy all day long, seven days a week.
Little ones can also enjoy the resort's new holistic programme with children’s yoga and wellness activities for the whole family, such as fun, educational classes in the herb garden and making scrubs using natural ingredients.
What’s nearby? Although the hotel is in a quiet spot on Saint Lucia’s north-west coast, it’s only about ten minutes from Gros Islet, which is much livelier. Once a sleepy fishing village, it’s now the place to head for rum shops, horseback tours and street food stalls, and it hosts a buzzing Friday-night street party called Gros Islet Jump Up.
Tried and tested As well as special yoga classes tailored to children, kids can make body scrubs using herbs grown here. A daily programme of events for teens includes water balloon volley and jewellery making.
The sleeping arrangements We recommend the Two-Bedroom Ocean View Rooms for families – they’re made up of two interconnecting rooms with a balcony or terrace, and have stunning ocean views. Two-Bedroom Oceanfront Suites come with a kitchen, and the Premium Two-Bedroom Ocean View Villas sleep four, with children on a sofa bed in the living room. They are also available with a plunge pool. For larger families, there are three and four-bedroom villas available, which sleep up to 12.
