St. Lucia - where to stay?

I recently became very infatuated with the Anse Chastenet Resort. Before I go and drop that much money per night, I want to do my homework and look into other places to stay on the island that would cost less but still meet my desires. I'm looking for the following things I don't require spa treatment or to be pampered! Just want to hit the adventure activities with a focus on snorkeling / kayaking.)

1. snorkeling right off the beach (I understand which side of the island you are on makes for more or less ideal conditions due to the wind) (and I hear the snorkeling of the Anse Chastenet beach is good).
2. a pool
3. air conditioning
4. Would be nice if boat snorkel trips were offered
5. I would like to be able to go on excursions to the mineral baths, sulphur springs, plantations, easy rainforest hiking, and possibly go into town.

Last time I checked, I believe that Anse Chastanet did not have a pool. Also, I think some of the rooms do not have A/C.

Yes I believe you are correct I got that impression as well. More reasons for me to be looking for another place to say!

On my St. Lucia wish list and in the same area as Anse Chastanet: Jalousie Plantation. Check it out!

Ti Kaye Village is built on a hillside above the beach but it has everything else on your wishlist. It's quite a climb up from the beach but there are 2 restaurants (one at beach level).

I would recommend renting a car as excursions/taxi rides are expensive.

Thank you it appears that Ti Kaye Village is less per night yet offers the a similar intimate experience.
