Coco Palm Review
This boutique hotel in Rodney Bay Village overlooks an inviting pool and a cozy guesthouse, Coco Kreole, at the edge of the property. Coco Palm guest rooms—including six swim-up rooms adjacent to the pool and a dozen spacious suites—are decorated in French Caribbean plantation style. Extra-large bathrooms have walk-in showers, claw-foot tubs (in suites), and separate toilet facilities—amenities that you'd expect at much pricier resorts. Suites also have pull-out couches in the sitting room and an additional full bathroom, making it perfect for families. The 20 Coco Kreole rooms are smaller and wrap around what is more like a comfortable living room than a hotel lobby. The KoKo Cabana bistro and bar overlook Coco Palm's pool and bandstand; Creole Grill serves light meals and local dishes. All the action of Rodney Bay Village and beautiful Reduit Beach is within walking distance.
Luxe for Less
This plantation-style boutique hotel is action-central for the Rodney Bay Village scene. Guest rooms with an eye towards soothing Feng Shui design—including six swim-up rooms and a dozen spacious suites—offer every modern convenience. Cordless phones, DVD players, free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, and ultramodern bathrooms with walk-in showers and claw-foot tubs (in suites) are amenities you'd expect at much pricier resorts. Ti Bananne, the breezy bistro/bar, is open all day and into the evening; live bands entertain nightly at the poolside bandstand. Reduit Beach, St. Lucia's best, is within walking distance. Classy, stylish, family-friendly, and—best of all—very reasonably priced.
