Fodor's Expert Review Starfish Saint Lucia

Reduit Beach Ave., Rodney Bay, Gros-Islet, Saint Lucia

This large family-friendly resort at the south end of Reduit Beach is surrounded on three sides by gardens, and since it's all-inclusive and reasonably priced—with lots of possibilities for entertainment—it's a viable choice for an economical family vacation. Deluxe ocean-view rooms face the beach; deluxe rooms face the garden; and premium rooms have a pool or garden view. All rooms accommodate up to three adults or two adults and two children. Dining options include Ocean Beach Grill and Monarch Buffet, which are included in the rates, and La Cuccina (Italian cuisine) and Oriental (Asian cuisine), which cost extra. Enjoy cold drinks at Clippers Swim Up Bar, cocktails at Sunset Bar on the beach, and nightcaps at the Monarch Bar lounge—you'll have to pay for premium brands, though.

PROS

  • Directly on the beach
  • Daily supervised programs for kids
  • Nightly entertainment

CONS

  • Beach is fairly narrow here
  • Buffet food is uninspiring and other restaurants cost extra
