We were a group of 16 adults and 4 kids all ages for a 7 day stay for my big birthday and our 25th anniversary. When we arrived we were met by Kris, the house manager. She took the time to go over the villa and all its amenities, as well as all the attractions nearby. The villa itself is beautiful. The pictures describe each area of the villa as it is just that the view of the sea is sooo much nicer than in the pictures. I guess it is difficult to capture it in just a small photo.
We are so very grateful for the staff at the villa, which saw to our every need. The cooks did a magnificent job in the kitchen. We took the catered package and it was soo easy and I never had to stand in the supermarket but could enjoy our family and friends. They prepared our meals from their own menus, and they were all delicious and always fresh. They even catered for our friends with allergies! Of course the housekeeper did a great job too, always greeting us with a smile and saw to our every need.
We spent many wonderful hours relaxing by the pool at the villa or went to one of the nearby beaches. The two closest ones had really good snorkelling areas. Rodney Bay Village is only a few minutes by car away with shops and some really nice restaurants. The Rodney Bay Marina and the more active Reduit beach are also some fun spots to visit. If you are a golf fanatic you have a St. Lucia Golf and Country Club right on your door step too and they even pick you up. We did a bit of touring while there and the best one was the private catamaran trip we took with our group alone to see all the sights in Soufriere, the home of the Piton Mountains. So beautiful! They also have a beer that is called “Piton”, a must try!
For my birthday we had a special dinner arranged with a steel band for one hour and a DJ for a night of dancing! Kris organized it all and I did not have to worry about anything! Everybody had a fabulous time … most of all the Birthday girl!!
I could say so many things about this beautiful place and it's fantastic staff, but unless you experience it for yourself you won't understand what a truly relaxing place this is.
I highly recommend this villa to anyone who wants to be treated like royalty and have a great time with family and friends.
We visited Villa Capri to take in some Jazz during Saint Lucia Jazz week. Being only 5 minutes from Pigeon Island it is ideally located to attend jazz or other Soleil festivals in St Lucia. Since most of us had been to St Lucia before we were not planning on doing much. For that Villa Capri is perfect. Like a little hotel with private pool and 6 staff just for us. Because it was sort of a reunion, some of us went out a few times and would more than once end up home rather late. Inevitably we would all end up in the pool for a nightcap. This means we would either have breakfast late or miss it altogether. It was perfect to get up and feel at home. I can only recommend it. So much better than staying in a hotel. And really good value for money, since we had arranged for Chris to do the shopping and the cooks preparing some of the meals. These family style dinner were as good as always better than going out. The only tour we did was a private boat ride Chris had arranged. It included snorkeling a the Pitons. And a few that had never done it went zip lining. With the Jazz shows we attended on Friday night and Sunday afternoon the week went by way to fast. I am sure we will be back. Maybe next time for Carnival. We really loved. Thank you to the staff
