We had a lovely holiday in St Lucia staying at a Saga Hotel. The food was very good and plenty of it. Our room was lovely with a view over the gardens. In fact all the rooms had garden and sea views. Just like paradise! The only drawback was that the hotel was situated on the top of a very...

I had a thorough tour round this hotel while in St.Lucia and would just say it is not the side of the island I would want to stay. Think Saga have bought a white elephant as the building is very old and you are virtually cut off from the tourist areas. However, to each his own, but would not stay...

The hotel is on the hill and the drive up to it is a wee bit hairy but once in the hotel reception you forget all about that. The restaurant is just by the reception and we were given a light breakfast as we had an early start. Lovely fresh fruit and croissant with choice of coffees or teas. Elizabeth,...

Just returned from 10day holiday at the Bel Jou, had a great time. Used Saga's door to door service to the UK airport & return, great as I live over 200 miles away. The hotel is excellently run, large bedrooms, well maintained grounds and facilities. Food buffet style most of the week with a good choice and variety. All the...

We have been lucky enough to visit Bel Jou on 3 occasions,staying for 3 weeks each time and are looking forward to returning in October after a two week stay in Antigua.Having stayed at several of the Caribbean Islands [Tobago,Barbados,Grenada..] each of them has their own charm and differences but the one thing you will always be sure of is...

Just returned from 3 weeks at the Bel Jou, Saga door to door service brilliant on outward journey,but return left much to be desired, the use of a VW bus to transport tired guests on a 200+ mile trip is NOT a good idea. The hotel was very good, food varied but mostly good, room very clean, bright & comfortable,...

We've just returned from three weeks in this hotel in St Lucia. The hotel is owned by SAGA and caters mainly for folks aged 50 or over. The oldest person there while we stayed was in his 90's. The hotel is clean, well appointed with friendly, attentive staff. Food was plentiful and varied buffet style. Lulu's Cabana served light lunches,...

Had a great 14 nights holiday at the Bel Jou from April 8th.- weather typical tropical with a few showers but very warm. We had booked the previous July which meant we were able to fly with Virgin and preselect our seats at no additional charge. The flight out was excellent with the crew very attentive and all the services...

We have just returned from the Bel Jou hotel after a 3-week holiday with Saga. Firstly let me say that the service from Saga and the hotel were first class in every way.
