Need advice on an all inclusive resort on St. Lucia

Hi. I've made up my mind that I want to see the Pitons and will head to St. Lucia this summer. I'm looking for any and all advice on booking an all inclusive resort.
I've checked TripAdvisor, but everyone has bad reviews and I can't figure out which one is the way to go.

I'm looking for a resort with a lot to do. I need to get out, so does my wife and while a beach is nice, I need one with tons of things to keep me busy.
I was checking out the BodyHoliday at LeSport because it looks like that fits the bill http://www.thebodyholiday.com/ and has a ton to do.

I checked out their activities section and it looks like there is plenty to keep me busy. I also heard a lot about jademountain. It's my understand that these are the two popular ones, but I wasn't able to find much on how good the activities are at Jade Mountain compared to LeSport.

Is there another resort on St. Lucia I should be checking out? Again, all inclusive I think would be best for me, but not sure which works.
Thanks in Advance!

Jade Mountain is wonderful, but it is not an all-inclusive resort (you can get a meal plan if you want), and it costs $1200 per night. A similar but less expensive alternative to Jade Mountain is Anse Chasanet, but it is also not all-inclusive (though has a meal plan). Both have views of the Pitons and are in the south. At the base of the Pitons is the Viceroy Sugar Beach, and it's magnificent. It's not all-inclusive, however, but it offers a lot, though it's expensive.

In my opinion, all-inclusive is rarely the best way to go in St. Lucia, which has wonderful restaurants in the Castries/Rodney Bay area, but the BodyHoliday is nice if you want a spa-oriented vacation (you get spa treatments every day).

The St. James Club Morgan Bay has a good location in the north on a pretty good beach. I've stayed there when the resort was in a different incarnation, and it's a short hop into Rodney Bay on the jitney for shopping and restaurants (or a short taxi ride).

Just want to throw a lovely property into the mix: http://fonddouxestate.com/. It is locally owned and operated, has a restaurant and bar on property. It is a working cocoa plantation, so lots of interesting activities there and near by.

There are several. Rendezvous is a smaller boutique Adults Only /All Inclusive resort (100 rooms) with beautiful grounds, long stretch of beach, excellent food and service, daily & nightly activities. It is a couples only resort (no singles)

LeSport is also an all inclusive resort with excellent food and service, caters to singles and couples, included spa treatments daily plus amazing spa with added treatments, all sorts of activities, etc.

There are also 3 Sandals properties, all of which are all inclusive and offers a stay at one, play at all 3 option with transportation between the 3 properties.

There are other properties that are adult oriented and offer meal plans.

Good luck with your research and enjoy your visit!
