Two part'er: St. Lucia for a few nights then on to Raffles Canouan -- looking for reviews.

Jump to last reply

We're trying to use an award ticket for a trip in July. Looks like to get to Canouan (CIW), we'll be stopping over in St. Lucia. If the airline will allow, we may make a few nights in St. Lucia and then 4-5 nights on Canouan @ Raffles.

First off, what I'm most interested in is to hear experiences from Raffles. Did a search, found only a couple topics--the one with the most potential veered off-course into a discussion about locals being displaced, the mega-corp taking over, etc etc. I'm very interested to hear more details about Raffles, so if anyone can share--I'd greatly appreciate it. If you don't want to post here, feel free to email me at: andyran26.2 at gmail dot com.

As far as St Lucia goes, I'm considering a few options. We have a 3nt "certificate" for a stay at any Sandals property (lowest room cat. but upgradeable at our cost, of course). So there's 3-days that would hardly cost us anything (maybe a few hundred $ if we upgrade rooms). Or, if we didn't use that, we'd likely stay a few nights at Ladera or Anse Chastanet. I realize we're talking about totally different types of resorts (I've read a lot of Sandals reviews--I'm not impressed), but 3nights for close to nothing vs. $1,xxx for 3nights......hmmmm.
I think I could swallow a few days at a sub-par Sandals, if I were staying for practically nothing and knowing that a much nicer (hopefully) stay was ahead @ Raffles.

At this point, I'm leery to just book the entire stay at Canouan due to the fact that I just don't know enough about the place.

Any thoughts? Thanks in advance
