We encourage EVERYONE to walk around, stop into the bars and talk to the locals. They are all very friendly. Everyone says hi back as you walk by them.
Jan 12- Picked up at the airport by Ramiah. Took us grocery shopping because the stores would be closed by the time we got to Soufriere. Very nice & informative. He showed us how to get to the beach, store and certain restaurants.
Went to Ruby's for dinner. Wings were amazing and the steak was good. Very pricey though
Jan 13- Walked to Hummingbird Beach. Ordered a drink at Hummingbird Resort & we swam in the pool.
Too much writing, LOL - Here is point form.
SARGAS! Wow, amazing, great view, comfy bed, catered meal (delicious)! WOW! 1 day wasn't enough. Hope to return next year for a week there.
Sugar Beach - Paid $100US to use beach. If we wanted a chair it was another $50. $ went towards your food and drinks for the day. It didn't take long to use $14US for a bottle of water (WHAT?). $14US per cocktail. Lunch was good but not fantastic.
That being said, the place is peaceful. People (waiting staff) not very friendly, however, the driver was.
Glad we did it but would not go back.
Hummingbird Beach Resort-
Nice to find out that if you order a drink, you can have use of the pool & washrooms! Perfect, especially after spending a few hours on the beach.
This place is very peaceful. Lots of Hummingbirds. Good food. Really good cocktails. We plan to return for dinner one night.
Check out the pink powder puff flower,the hummingbirds love them.
We asked for a tour of the rooms and they showed us around. View from honeymoon suite is very nice.
Pounty's Bar - Delicious pizza, great staff, good conversation. Great price. Open from Wednesday - Sunday at 6pm for pizza. Opens at 10 everyday for the bar.
Tet Paul- Fantastic view. Get the guide(no extra cost). They will show you a lot more than if you go on your own.
Anse Chastenet & Anse Mamin:- Walked to Anse Mamin. Very nice. Fish Burger was delicious!
Boucan by Hotel Chocolat:- Great view. Good food, service was good. Lava cake exceptional. A little pricey.
Mango Tree- Better view than Boucan. Fantastic food. Great Service.
Sapphire 3- Cooked dinner here! Asked for a pan to cook chicken legs in the oven and voila! Janus is willing to help out any way he can! Thank you!
Enbas Saut Trail - Not for the faint of heart. Strenuous walk up mountain. Then 2000 steps down to the waterfall. THEN 2000 steps back up. Very muddy & slippery. Strongly recommend water proof hiking boots. The walk back was good. Bring water!
Summary - we encourage EVERYONE to walk around, stop into the bars and talk to the locals. They are all very friendly. Everyone says hi back as you walk by them.
Thank you Janus & staff for your help and drives. We are looking forward to seeing Sabre when it is done (and maybe staying for a few days at it!!)
Hummingbird Resort- Food is really good.
Pounty's Pizza is delicious!
We cannot recommend breakfast because we made our own every morning, however we kept hearing the breakfast at Hummingbird's & Fedo's was good.
We also tried the food at the green shack on Hummingbird beach, it was good and inexpensive.
Janus you're an amazing young man and we enjoyed talking to you. We wish you all the best and good luck with your future plans.
Take care of your family and we hope to see you again sometime. Looking forward to your visit to Canada.
