A welcoming staff, beautiful grounds, and a very restful resort. Every detail attended to. Can't think of a better place to be. This is a small boutique resort so the staff has time to take care of your needs. I had everything I wanted to enjoy my time at C'est la Vie including a driver to show me around the...

The grounds are beautiful, the staff help you plan every detail of a great group vacation, including excursions as well as general transportation around the island. They provide an lovely breakfast each morning at whatever time you request, and can also arrange gourmet dinner cooked and served in-house.

Villa C'estt La Vie is a gorgeous place in a peaceful location not far from Windjammer. The private villa is set within lush gardens with a swimming pool and a track that leads down to a secluded cove. The private chef puts together delectable dishes - it's hard to pick a favourite but the plantain cups filled with jerk chicken...

This was by far the best vacation I have ever had. We were pampered from the time we landed in St. Lucia until we departed. The staff was absolutely amazing! Oshea and Clinton and Chef were the best. There was nothing we thought about that wasn't provided with a smile. It will be hard to have a "regular" vacation after...

Our extended family of 6 adults and two children spent a wonderful week at C'est La Vie. We take a family trip each year and have have rented apartments and villas all over the world and rank our stay here as one of the best. Everything about the villa and the staff is perfect. We had very specific food allergies,...

I totally enjoyed my stay. Our group occupied both the main villa and the adjoining cottage, both beautifully furnished. We had staff on call and were well taken care of particularly by the capable and quietly efficient O'Shea. I would happily stay there again but I give 4 as opposed to 5 stars for the following reasons: Two mornings in...

Thank you for your review of "C’est la Vie". We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay but very sorry to hear about your issue with the hot water. While the entire villa utilizes solar energy for heating its water, there are occasions when the system is inadequate due to either a lack of sun or a heavy bathing load....

My friends and I stayed here for our 40th birthdays. This place was amazing. So beautiful and luxurious. The staff was very welcoming and were great the entire week. The food was the best on the Island. A perfect place to be away from the "tourist" hustle and bustle and a great place to relax. I would recommend this to...

When you arrive in St Lucia you are met by your driver. Upon arrival to the Villa you are greeted with cold towels and drinks. The villa itself is beautiful with an amazing ambiance.

Cest La Vie is the epitome of relaxation. Secluded and quiet yet close enough to a private cove you immediately feel like you are alone. The service, though, is amazing and always available. First rate! We were greeted daily by friendly faces and warm breakfast and coffee on the veranda. Dinner each night was unique and seemed to get better...

The first thing about our trip to St. Lucia that sets it apart was our accommodations and staff at C'est La Vie. Upon arrival we were greeted with chilled Champagne and welcomed to the villa. The Villa is spectacular. Very top line in everything from the linens to the wood work, to the furniture. Every detail was attended to and...
