      Exactly what you'd expect of a 3 star hotel. You can see attempts have been made to modernise the decor. Covid protocols were excellent with everything prepackaged before your arrival, sanitized rooms and masks a requirement in all public areas. Breakfast was more than adequate and the staff at reception were very accommodating. When we had a booking request to stay longer, management swiftly made a plan. Definitely one of the nicer places in St.Lucia.
