This is a lovely, very well run hotel. Many guests return again and again and that says it all! The staff are fantastic, friendly and very caring. Food is excellent. Ambience is wonderful, rooms luxurious. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

We had a great 10 day stay. The hotel sits within a beautiful garden, has a wonderful, elegant beachside restaurant. The rooms are little cottages dotted around the grounds. exceptionally good food, and a lovely beach. But the key is the staff. Not just professional, but individually charming. You end up making genuine friends with them all. Just one example...

Every resort has its own personality. What will be perfect for one person would be awful for another. The East Winds is perfect for those seeking a small, luxurious but low-key all-inclusive resort in a wonderful Caribbean setting. It would be awful for anyone who wants a lot of people, facilities like clubs and shops, and entertainment. We have traveled...

As many others have shared, East Winds is a gorgeous, tropical retreat with excellent food and a warm and caring staff. We were so pleased with our decision to stay at East Winds and I look forward to a return in the future. I would say our most pleasant and unexpected surprise of our stay was New Year's Eve. I...

This was our first visit to East Winds, we booked short notice because we were unhappy with our initial accommodations on the island. I am so glad we did! We have never considered ourselves partial to "all inclusive" hotels before, but East Winds is different. It's small, not crowded, has beautiful natural looking gardens and grounds, has a gorgeous beach...

Hi Sharkleberry So great to hear from you and I am delighted with your review. Especially as you weren't 100% happy with your initial St Lucian accommodation, it is wonderful that we rescued the experience for you and you have left with good memories of a wonderful holiday.

My husband and I spent a week at East Winds over the New Year, and it went above and beyond our expectations. We fell in love with St. Lucia's beautiful beaches and wonderful weather, but we didn't want to go to one of the big rowdy resorts, so the reviews of this well-kept secret caught our eye. Not only was...

Only roughly 30 cottages, lower number furthest from beach, pool, and restaurant. Lovely guest but crowds are bit more seasoned. The staff is incredibly accommodating and I do not believe I ever heard the word no. Even when the wife and I wanted to take a bottle of champagne on the Hobe-cat for afternoon sail, they walked over the bucket...

Yes, but by now it's the minutiae that become important! The new bathrooms in the colonial-style bungalows were long overdue and are a great improvement, complete with magnifying mirror, though with nowhere to hang your wet swimming gear! The beach drinks service, which was introduced last year but failed to appear, was spot on this year with regular morning and...
