Just got back from honeymoon at Jalousie Hilton in St. Lucia

You cannot go wrong at this place. First rate with outstanding amenities. Provided me with the ideal honeymoon.

I will try to answer any questions anyone may have about my experience.

Will be going to St. Lucia for our wedding/honeymoon in July and staying at the Jalousie Resort & Spa. Any information you can provide would be helpful. Did you at all travel to the city for shopping or did you pretty much stay at the resort. I hear dining is very expensive. thank you.

I'm going there in July also, and have reserved a mountain view villa with plunge pool. What type of accomodations did you stay in? Do you recommend a certain villa number? Also, did you rent a jeep or car, and any thoughts on that? Thanks!

I recommend villa #904 as it has grat views of the Pitons and a huge plunge pool.

AS for renting a jeep. My husband and I rented a jeep from "Cool Breezes" last sumer when we stayed at Ladera on our honeymoon and loved it. For more specifics on renting a jeep you can e-mail him at [email protected]

Even though we did not stay at the Hilton we did go there fore dinner a few nights and I did take a tour of the property. It is very nice. The restaurants are expensive as are all nice restaurants on the island.

I am considering St. Lucia for our next trip and have read many of the trip reports and still cannot decide between Ladera and Jalousie (I would like to experience Ladera, but don't think we want to be there for a whole week) ... Would it be reasonable to split the vacation, i.e., 2-3 nights at Ladera and 4-5 nights at Jalousie? My other idea was to split the vacation between the north (stay at Hyatt) and south, but from what I gather on this site, although everyone loves the Hyatt, the north end is really nothing special. What do you think?

Cheryl -- it is definitely reasonable to split your vacation between Ladera and Jalousie. If you decide to go that route, I think I would stay at Ladera first and then Jalousie. Ladera is quieter and after a few days of that you may be ready for a bigger resort with more activity options.

WE split our honeymoon up last summer by staying at Ladera in a deluxe 1 bedroom for 5 nights then we drove up to the north to stay at the Hyatt for 3 nights.

The southern part of the city has the stunning jw dropping beauty and the romote quientness and serenity. The norht while not as beautiful as the south si still very nice. The whole isalnd is hilly and mountainous. We wanted to stay at Ladera for the romantic intimacy and serenity but we also wanted a few nights of elegance adn glamour so we choose the Hyatt.

We really enjoyed our days in the north too. We went on a sunset cruise on teh brig Unicorn (used in teh miniseries Roots) and we walked over to Pigeon Island to explore it (I highly recommend it) and went into Casteris for shopping.
We went to the Hilton severl times while we are at Ladera. It is very nice.

BEfore we left we had decided that if we were going to split our stay we mights as well see some of the other end of the island rather than just transfer from Ladera down the Hill to the Hilton.

I am finally working on a detailed trip report and hope to have it up on my web site soon. I wiil post a message when I get it there. There are also pictures of St. Lucia and Ladera there too. E-mail me if you would like my web address.
