We just returned from a week's stay at Cap Maison and all we can say is you MUST go there! We are a cool, fun, young couple who love to travel, meet new people and share experiences with others. We decided on Cap Maison because it just looked too good to resist and it ended up exceeding even our greatest expectations. Trust us!
From the moment we stepped foot on the property, we knew Cap Maison was a special place. Our arrival was met with warmth & friendliness, in addition to champagne and refreshing cold cloths to soothe us from our day's travel. Our room, #29, was located away from the the public areas and by the entranceway to the private beach. The sea view from the room was breathtaking, framed by a beautifully manicured garden (constantly being groomed, there's always someone working on keeping it as meticulous as ever) overlooking the cliff edge and the Carribean Sea. The calming sound of the waves and the singing of the birds is now sorely missed from a metropolis setting that we have returned to.
The property and the room were perfectly appointed. The bathrooms were beautifully tiled with a double person mediterranean walk-in shower as the center piece. The water in the solar heated showers needs to be run for a few minutes to heat up appropriately. Bose stereo and flat screen appliances as well as full a/c and naturally vented window shades completed the well appointed room. The bed was slightly soft for me but perfect for my girlfriend-she said she hadn't slept as well in months. Housekeeping was excellent although with some gaps in service if you rose late for breakfast. Just give a call to reception if you have any requests.
Breakfast was perfect. The Cliff restaurant with its views over the sea was spectacular. The staff were so welcoming. We knew most of their names within a day or so of our stay. The food was delicious and by far the best that we encountered in St .Lucia (we dined in Rainforest Hideaway, La Terrace and The Edge). Chef Craig Jones is ever present. The freshness and standard of his work was so apparent in every meal presented to us. Local produce with fish fresh from the sea, etc .My girlfriend loves to cook and when word got to our waiter one night of how in awe she was of Chef Jones' talent, he went on to tell the Chef himself, who invited my girlfriend into his kitchen. It was a great experience. He was there overseeing the quality of his staff's output day and night and seemed like a really cool guy. His talent is known all over the island and for good reason. Everything was incredible!
The main pool and deck overlooking the sea was intimately setted. The lounge chairs were so comfortable that they felt like beds. The ellipitical pool's view was breathtaking. The poolside service, with fresh towels & cold bottled water was delivered by a warm and friendly staff, particularly Vanessa. She's a doll and and loves surprising guests with her very own cocktail concoctions made with fresh juices and fruits., just tell her what you like and she'll be happy to improvise. We looked forward to seeing her smiling face every day.
The people really make Cap Maison. All of the staff were so courteous and helpful. Cycandra at the front desk could not do enough to accomodate all of our requests and help in planning various excursions and dinner reservations. Trisha was also a great help.
During our trip it was my girlfriend's birthday. The staff organized lunch at the Champagne zip-line deck. Accessed on foot through the gentle Caribbean waves at the tip of the cliff underneath Cap Maison we shared an unforgettable moment together with waves crashing around us. The deck is absolutely gorgeous-it's romantic and exotic. Amazingly the staff surprised us with a line of romantic candles surrounded with fresh flower petals in a heart shape design on our return to our room that evening. They organized this on their own inititaive-without me asking them to for my girlfriend's birthday. It made the day even that much more special for her. It's the details like this that make Cap Maison the magical hideaway that it is. It's the staff that make it so unique. Customer service is of the utmost importance to us and we were both equally blown away by that which we received throughout our entire stay.
Everthing about this place wafts of understated elegance and professionalism. It's chic and sexy. The surroundings are magical-no other way to say it. The Honor Bar, the Library (where you can borrow a book with one put in its place) and the flowing water fountains are only a few of the things that make Cap Maison so VIP and "cool," but in a very under the radar way. The Tapas and Beach barbeque nights were a great way to meet your fellow guests and so much fun.
We could go on forever. Can't wait to return to Cap Maison...
