Dennis' Hideaway Review

Each room in this hilltop guesthouse has a private balcony with a perfect view of the sun as it sets over Saline Bay. About a three-minute walk from the beach, the rooms are simple: a pair of twin beds, a nightstand, a chair, a private bath, and a place to hang some clothes. A large swimming pool is adjacent to the open-air dining terrace. Dennis (who plays guitar two nights a week, also happens to be a former shrimp-boat captain and is currently one of the island's three justices of the peace) is a charmer. The seafood (lobster, shrimp, fried squid, sautéed octopus, conch, or kingfish) at the restaurant is great, the drinks are strong, and the view is heavenly. If you'd rather go for something meaty, there's rack of lamb, barbecued spareribs or chicken, grilled lamb, or pork chops. Dennis will transport inn guests arriving at Union Island Airport on his sailing yacht (a 45-minute voyage) or speedboat (15 minutes).

    A bad taste in an otherwise great holiday

    I would not normally write a review, but I want to help others avoid a disappointment similar to ours. We had read before that the accommodation would be basic, but we didn't expect not to have hot water. And the bed was in a terrible condition, squeaking at any move. The room and toilet were not in a good state overall. But the worst of all was that, when we told Dennis we wanted to leave after the 1st night, he was quite rude. The garden, the bar and the restaurant are ok, the place is nice for a cocktail. But that's all, in our view. This was the worst experience in our St Lucia and St Vincent and the Grenadines tour.
