We have been lucky enough to have stayed at Bel Jou for three to four weeks at a time, over the past nine years. We spent a wonderful time there end of May into June but I fear it will have been our last trip. It is everything we don't look for in a hotel... Let me explain. We love...

Bel Jou or Delightful Day hotel reflect its positives, but it has to be judged alongside its physical restrictions due to its position high up on a hillside overlooking the Caribbean Sea, airport and cemetery. The hotel and grounds are kept spotless with close scrutiny of the details.Fogging is experienced, once a week on Wednesdays between 5.30pm to 6.30pm, when...

Fabulous holiday. Booked with Saga. But sold to Group a few weeks before my friend and I arrived. We were however informed of this change. Not sure what we were to expect. There was a change over period in the first few days of our arrival. This was a little confusing regarding Staffing and mini bus trips but everything booked...

Just returned from the Bel Jou hotel in St Lucia. A great pity that this hotel was sold by Saga. I had been twice before and the hotel is not the same as it was although it is difficult to pinpoint differences. The biggest change is in the courtesy bus services , these do not run as frequently as before...

20th Sept to 6th Oct 2016. A hotel like no other. The staff cannot do enough for you. What ever you want, you only have to ask. If there is a dance or you need a partner to play a game, either the staff will join you or find someone for you. This hotel requires the guests to get involved,...

I have just returned from a week here and it was lovely. Mr room was 310 and had a great view and for me it was great as there was a tree outside with birds perching on perfect for photographs.

I have recently returned from a 2 week stay at the Bel Jou . As stated in other reviews the hotel has recently changed hands and many changes have been implemented . Due to the perseverance of the Saga guests some of these were reinstated. In spite of these inconveniences ( especially the pool ), thanks to the superb staff...

This was our first Saga holiday and we were slightly unsure what it would be like. However, from the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome. There was about 5 members of staff to welcome us and Rita the Saga rep. Rita was our rep for the majority of our stay and is the best rep we have...
