The Bel Jou sits high up on a hill overlooking Castries. There's no beach access, but there is a nice pool. They attract an older crowd that are quite happy to tan by the pool and read. However, if you'd like more of an adventure, you can book any number of tours at the front desk. As other reviewers said,...

This was a wonderful hotel with fantastic views over Castries where the cruise ships dock. The rooms were very big, comfortable and clean. All the facilities like the pool, poolside restaurant, lounge, and dining room were very well looked after. Food was very good with lots of choice.just a shame the hotel is away from anywhere you could walk to,...

Oh!, The wonderful Saint Lucian staff make this a wonderful place. I made very good friends with one of the staff, I cannot mention their name because they are forbidden to fraternise with guests. I am now firm friends with their Mother and Father, Grand Mother and family. I saw the REAL Saint Lucia, not just the tourist part. We...

We spent a week at the Bel Jou in January 2017 and returned rested and well cared for by the staff of the hotel. This stay included all meals and drinks which were excellent with good choices at each meal time. The main building, which included the restaurant, main bar and entertainment areas, were cool and airy with lovely views...

We have been to the Caribbean many times both cruising and staying in hotels. My husband chose Bel Jou this time as Saga offered a 2 island package (St Lucia and Grenada). It was also our first time with Saga. However before leaving I checked on Trip Advisor and read some of the reviews. My heart sank as there were...

We have just spent Christmas and New Year at the Bel Jou. The new manager is quite dynamic and the staff are superb. There are a few problems. There was no hot water for six days due to the ancient obsolete water system, spares for which are not available. It will therefore need to be replaced. The hotel is very...

Returned back home just before Christmas- hotel not the same as our previous holidays since change of ownership - very disappointing. Would not return again although everyone is entitled to their opinion. St Lucia is a lovely island and the views from this hotel are amazing.

What a bad decision they made. Customer service way in front of the hotel in Barbados and what great staff and made to...

We approached our holiday at the Bel Jou with some trepidation after the sale from Saga to a new owner however our fears were completely unfounded It is a time of transition for the hotel manager Dean and his staff but I have to say we cannot find anything bad to say about our stay The room was spotlessly clean....
