"Everyone there is amazing! Eroline and Lyton are great hosts and their staff are incredibly friendly - it felt like we were with friends and we were sad when it came to leave. We think this is the best place on the island (and we stayed in a few!). In short, you have to go to Fond Doux!"

"Our house was adorable and the property is amazing, full of cocoa trees, mangoes and flowers. The pool area was relaxing. Fond Doux is truly a unique place with gracious hosts and beautiful grounds. It was unlike any other island we had been to in terms of friendliness of the people. In addition to Eroline and Lyton, the entire staff was accommodating and helpful."

"We spent 3 nights staying here in the Hibiscus Suite as part of a 14 night trip to St Lucia. Out of the 4 places we stayed this was our favourite by far. This is genuine hospitality at its best."
