Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Hotel's Favourite
The Fond Doux Eco Resort is a beautiful and tranquil place, surrounded by lush greenery and an array of colorful flowers. My partner and I very much enjoyed the privacy and comfort of our cottage. The sounds of the rainforest were lovely, as was the subtle smell of cocoa (the resort makes incredible chocolate using its surrounding cacao trees). The staff is wonderful: friendly, accommodating, and personable. The resort is also conveniently located for seeing all of Soufriere. We would definitely return.

Jenny at reception was the best, very welcoming and helpful during our stay. The staff greeted us with smiles and were kind at each encounter. There are plenty of areas around the resort to take cool pictures but this is an eco resort so remember to bring bug repellent. We loved that each guest gets their own cottage with a plunge pool, which makes it more private and intimate. If your looking for a more cultural experience in St Lucia definitely stay here. HIGH RECOMMEND!

We loved the tranquility, the staff, closeness to the main attractions in Soufriere and the south as well as the picturesqueness of the surroundings, was perfect for pictures. The meals were delicious, we did breakfast and dinner.

Having had an enjoyable stay at Fond Doux previously, my husband and I decided to return for a weekend as part of our honeymoon celebrations. Unfortunately this time our stay was completely ruined and was such a stressful experience that we will never return. Whilst the surroundings are beautiful, the cottages are in quite a state of disrepair, upon arrival we noticed broken furniture and nails sticking out of the wood inside our cottage. We were moved to another, however later that evening we noticed a table had been strategically placed in front of the bed to hide the fact that the end panel was split and hanging off and again nails were exposed. Whilst in reception on the 2nd day waiting to start our chocolate tour, we witnessed the reception staff moaning about guests who had requested that the walkway and stairs to their cottage be cleaned as it was extremely slippery. We completed the chocolate tour and then went to hike on the piton view trail, forgetting about all the negatives we began to relax and enjoy our stay. Later in the evening around 8.30pm we made our way down to the restaurant for dinner, the stairs are steep and the walkways are a mixture of wood, concrete and tile. They are not well maintained and in parts are covered in miss which is extremely slippery when wet. We took the torch provided and also our phone torch and slowly walked down. There was an extremely slippery patch on the walkway, my husband slipped on the wet, slimy, moss covered wood and fell incredibly hard, kicking my legs from under me. As his legs slid from under him he fell, hitting his head on the bottom step, he hit the side of his head so hard that he was unable to move and lying on the floor for a good 10 minutes. Once he had managed to get up we proceeded to the restaurant and told the staff what had happened, my husband was in extreme pain and his face and neck had started to swell. I asked Marvin (who we had met the night before) if we could have some ice and arrange to take dinner back to our room. Whilst Marvin was arranging this for us I told one of the waitresses that I was very worried, and asked who I could contact during the night if the situation worsened, the waitress simply replied “call 911” and walked away. Marvin really was the only saving grace for us, he helped us back to the room, carried our food and helped to make my husband comfortable, providing a bucket of ice. He was the only person who showed any empathy and compassion. I sat up for the entire night because I was so worried, and after 10pm there was nobody on hand to provide help if needed. The following morning as we were preparing to leave we popped into the restaurant to say thank you to Marvin, upon entering a different member of staff who we had not met before asked how my husband was feeling, so clearly the resort were aware of the incident, I also wrote feedback on the checkout form. My husband had a concussion and suffered severe swelling and vomiting for days after leaving the resort, he is now having to seek medical treatment in the UK due to ongoing pain in his jaw. We were incredibly disappointed that none of the management team called the room or came to check on us. In hindsight I realise we should have made more of a fuss, but we were too exhausted and eager to get away from this traumatic experience. After leaving, we emailed the resort regarding the incident and were told they were not aware of it. There has been no accountability and they have now stopped responding. We were incredibly lucky that the bottom step was wood and due to being wet had a small degree of flexibility, if my husband had hit his head on the step above which was concrete and tile he may well have not been here to tell the tale. I’m incredibly disappointed to have had to write this review, however our previous positive experience has now been been tainted by this awful, terrifying experience and complete lack of regard from the resort.

5 stars is not enough for Fond Doux. 50 stars would not be enough! Not only were the grounds lovely and our accommodation excellent, the staff were beyond compare. They are warm, caring, and genuine. They did everything they could to ensure we had the best experience possible. We have nothing bad to say about Fond Doux and no where near enough room to say everything we loved about it -- the pool area was perfect, the meals incredible, the Chocolate Tour fascinating, and on and on. No question where we will stay when we return to St. Lucia ... it'll be at Fond Doux Resort.

Our stay at Fond Doux was way better than we could have imagined. The staff was incredibly friendly and made us feel at home. The fact that we got the oppurtunity to stay in the middle of the rain forest is a once in a life time experience. It was great to be able to walk around on the property and such a variety of vegetation. There was a trail on the property where we could hike (about a mile?) to see the Pitons. The resort prides itself in being eco friendly, which we really appreciated. We got to sit and talk with the owners Eroline and Lyton Lamontagne, which was such a wonderful experience. You can tell that they truly love this resort and want everyone to have a great stay! We would 100% go back!
