Recent Saint Lucia reviews

  • Outstanding in every way!

    "Our family of 4 spent spring break week at Villa Makambu, and we had a truly remarkable experience. The villa itself (we stayed in the lower 3br unit) is island-elegant - well decorated, spacious, extremely clean, with spectacular views of Marigot Bay and the Caribbean Sea. The pool area is beautiful, adjacent to the outdoor seating area of the villa. The kitchen is completely adequate, and the bathrooms are nice with wonderful open-air showers. But what makes Makambu and St. Lucia in general so unique are the people. We can't say enough about the level of service provided by the full-time and on-site property caretaker Carlos. He seemingly worked all day and night to ensure the grounds were in perfect condition. Any questions or needs we had, he took care of (such as driving us down to the village for dinner our first night, before the arrival of our rental car). Our VERY BEST two days of the vacation were spent with Carlos and his first mate and cousin Lance on Carlos's motor boat, visiting various beaches, resorts, and snorkeling spots along the Caribbean coast. They refer to this as a "water taxi" but it really was our own private water-based tour guide. So much fun and a tremendous way to see the island. The rest of the staff was amazing. Myranda kept the inside of villa spotless and always had a smile on her face. Josee manages the property for the owners and provided us with a thorough overview of the island and things to do upon checking in. Owner Pascale was very responsive and easy to work with. And the people of St. Lucia were all very welcoming and gracious. We would definitely recommend a car rental. The village of Marigot Bay is walkable, but you'll appreciate the convenience of a car to explore, hit the grocery store, etc. The cool thing is the owners can arrange your car rental for you at an excellent price, with the car delivered right to the villa - no hassle when you arrive at the airport (included in our rental was transportation from the airport to Makambu). At the end of our week, we drove to the airport and met the car rental agent, and just handed him the keys - couldn't be any easier. Our only complaint for the whole trip is that the food in St. Lucia leaves a lot to be desired. Expect to spend a lot for mediocre food. Masala Bay in Marigot is outstanding, we enjoyed lunch outside at the Bayside Cafe. In closing, we loved our time at Villa Makambu and can't wait to return!"

  • Ocean breeze

    "Enjoyed being right on the ocean. Fish readily available and grapefruit, bananas etc. Bakery is an easy walk. Only downfall is to be aware of local bar with loud music. Some nights of restless sleep because of volume. Great help by cleaning staff, Merla who is very attentive and helpful."

  • Willis Stay at Villa Decaj

    "Our stay was excellent. Our housekeeper Rowlina was outstanding and very helpful. The location was good, with easy access to some key areas we wanted to see. The Villa was clean and functional - overall very good. The only downside was that the gardener did not show up at all in our 9 day stay and by the end the lawn was looking like a hay field."

  • A very special place

    "This property is absolutely beautiful. It is hard to understand how magical the house is until you are there. The photos do not do it justice. The sound of the birds and insects is amazing. The view is the best on the island. As the house is open on one side, be sure to put belongings away when it rains. We were here during the rainy season and when it rained hard, spray did come into the house. The furniture was fine, but books and computers left out did get wet. Also be aware that the floor is slippery when wet! Mary and Pius were very accommodating. They took care of all of our needs. It was a little challenging at times communicating with the owner. He travels a lot and sometimes did not get back to us for several days. We had a few miscommunications when trying to clarify information through Pius and Mary. I wish we had checked back with the owner for more clarity. Overall, we really loved our experience. We spent three magical weeks here and would stay here again."
