The resort is set in beautiful gardens and on a nice beach. The rooms are well appointed and very comfortable. The food is superb. But what really makes this place is the wonderful staff who do everything they can to ensure every guest has a great stay.

Nice all inclusive resort, small number of rooms, very refined. Quiet and has a remote feel to it. Lovely grounds. Lots of elderly Brits, who return year after year. Friendly staff, food is good but not great. Very formulaic, get the feeling that if its first Monday of the month this is the menu. Beach area is small but they...

Hi Bill Great to hear from you and so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us, we loved having you. We hope that the drive from the airport is always worth it for the charm and beauty of the North West of St Lucia, but the drive also gives a great opportunity to see the island, experience the rain...

If you are thinking of staying at East Winds as one of the few first time guests, you only need to spend a few minutes reading the extraordinarily consistently high praise reviews to know that you will not be disappointed. Firstly the rooms - understated class would be my definition. We had a deluxe room - not large but more...

Hi Statsi Thank you for the wonderful and comprehensive review, I appreciate it so much! Lovely to read and made me smile.

Unlike many of the guests, this was our first stay. This hotel delivers what it promises and there is not much you could fault it on. Great attention to details, they have thought of most things: beach towels in all the places you need them, a hand rope to get you out of the sea, taps to wash the sand...

After a lengthy transfer (2 hrs) from airport we knew a great deal about St Lucia on our first visit. Our driver welcomed and educated us in an entertaining and friendly way. On arrival at the Hotel which I prefer to describe as a Club we were not sure what to expect. Our welcome was warm and friendly and the...

We stayed at East Winds five years ago and found it to be perfect, incredibly it's now even better! When you arrive at East Winds you get a genuine welcome and straight away feel at home. We stayed in room 15, a beautiful semi-detached cottage overlooking the gardens but just a short walk (5 minutes) down to the beach, restaurant,...

This was our first experience of an all inclusive resort holiday and we were unsure it would suit us. However it didn't take long for us to find we were very happy to stay and enjoy all East Winds has to offer. The hotel is expensive and facilities are limited, reflecting its size. Our cottage-the cheapest room was very nice...

We stayed for a week in Feb in a beach front cottage which from memory used to be a cottage belonging to the Horlicks family, number 28. The views were excellent and we virtually walked on to the beach. The cottage itself was very comfortable with a beautiful recently refurbished bathroom. All meals were to a very high standard with...

Hello KerenHaugh Wow! What a great review.
