The road to Jade Mountain is very bad and its on a side of a mountain, leave in plenty of time to get there and drive slow

Food: whilst on Island we went to the following for Dinner.
Hotel Chocolat: Overall nice food & Great Service. If you want a view when dining book around 6pm, however will be quieter. Price wasn’t too mad but expect to pay over $100usd for 2 just for main & drinks. Dress nice – shorts okay- 8.5/10
Anse Chastanet: probably our least favorite to eat while here- menu wasn’t great, the food was actually nice and the price was fair but not par with other receptions- smart/casual shorty okay- 6.5/10
Sugar Beach: one of the nicest places to eat on Island, had both dinner In the great room & lunch at the Bay side. The great room is very fancy. Dress nice and men wear trousers & collar- food was fantastic. Comes with several pre course nibble. Don’t get water unless you really want it (us$15.00)- expect to pay a lot for 2 people easily over $200 usd (great experience) The Bayside is also very nice for food (more casual) I had the best Veal osso boco. Not as expensive but still pricey (shorts okay)- 9.5/10. *Please go*
Jade Mountain- going tonight- looks spectacular – it will cost a lot- is smart dress code going around 6pm to get views of the Pitons at sunet.
Gros Piton- a very good experience- Don’t do it unless you are an average fitness as you will struggle. If you are fairly active as a person it is easy. We managed to reach the summit and back down in 2 hours 40 minutes. When you turn up you will be forced on a guide. You don’t actually need one. It’s a path, rocky all the way to the top and it’s the same path up & down. Cost is $50usd per person for a guide & she was too slow for us. The views are good but make sure you go on a clear day.- 8/10
Drive-in Volcano- Sound’s better than it is. Took us about 20 minutes to see the volcano and its cool but not all that exciting.- 6/10
Mud Baths- the better of the two activities. As you will spend more time here and can stay as long as you like. The pools are amazing (very hot) and its fun to spread the mud on yourself. Cost is US$15 per person for both activities and takes about 2.5 hours.- 8/10
Sugar Beach- go & experience this during the day, it’s a fantastic setting between the two Piton. Make sure you set aside enough time to enjoy it- especially if you buy the $100USD per couple. It is a public beach so its free to go & you can lie towels on sand. If you want bed its U.S$50.00 per bed- 8.5/10
Diamond Botanical Gardens & Waterfall- nice Gardens & some cool plants, if you like all things plants you’ll love it, if not the only thing you’ll like is the waterfall us$7 per person
Enjoy your stay

While most places in the world have four well-defined seasons, its proximity to the equator means that this is not really the case for the island of St. Lucia.
