Quality/price ratio (507 USD per night) is very disappointing. Photos on booking were taken years ago, as the whole place needs a real refreshment right now. The private pool is rather a small bowl (around 80 cm of water) and has never been cleaned (leaves etc) during our

Prepare to pay 507 USD by night for a cheap out of age accommodation... We arrived and ask for the cottage with a kitchen (like on the pictures on Booking) to cook fresh fishes as we used to do... the receptionist said it will cost more and then said : « Oh you didnt had the

The Fond Doux is an excellent hotel with great staff which makes the stay memorable, if not for the rain ( you are in a rain forest) but because its a family run hotel frequented by many locals. If you want the beach its not really the place ( a free trip bus is laid on to the

Are children allowed at the Resort?
Yes sure you can but make sure you take insect repellent and keep the body covered with long sleeves/ trousers etc due to Mosquitos. We went in August and that was one of the few negatives. Our daughter's were teenagers. We all had nets round our beds. Enjoy!

Hello SurreyGirl62, Thank you for your interest in our beautiful Plantation Resort! It would be a pleasure to welcome you to Fond Doux Plantation & Resort. It is not advisable to walk into Soufriere or the beach as there are no side walks along the route and as such we would recommend a ordering taxi service. We remain at your disposal for any further assistance required. Best Regards, Fond Doux Management Team

We are wondering if there are any places to run?
There are trails and woods but depends what type of running you do?! Look at an area map and type in things to do in google for area breakdown so you can dejected routes. Roads/ lanes are quieter near/at resort but not sure if you jog on roads.

Do the cottages come with air condition??
No just ceiling fans. We went in August so it was a bit humid and sticky but not unbearable without AC.
