A wonderful haven to just relax and enjoy the wonderful Caribbean hospitality. Very friendly staff who do everything with a smile and nothing is too much trouble. Lovely simple rooms, some set amongst the gardens with no views of the sea or the ocean view rooms set just up from the beach. For those bath lovers, the hotel only has showers. There is one restaurant but a daily changing menu with a good choice to choose from. Being on an all inclusive basis you don't need to worry about anything; you can make your own cocktail at the pool bar or ask the friendly waiter at The Almond Tree Bar to make you a signature cocktail whilst watching the sunset. Each evening at dinner there is a selection of wines to enjoy, suitably paired with what is on the menu. There is plenty for guests to do; nature trails, yoga and pilates, sailing, a spa treatment in the recently opened open air spa pavilion or simply just relax and enjoy the Caribbean sunshine!

Peaceful and located amongst some extraordinary gardens that will keep the avid gardener entertained for hours! The service here is excellent and certainly a place for slightly older guests with a sophisticated dining experience complete with live piano and dress code.

I love this hotel, it is such a sweet property and the staff are so lovely and friendly. It is a little old fashioned in decor and the rooms aren't massive but this doesn't deter it from being one of my favourites.
As an All Inclusive property, the food doesn't disappoint from breakfast to dinner and you really must try the brownies at afternoon tea. Don't forget to enjoy the Friday night BBQ or the cocktail party on a Monday.
They now have a great fitness trail with exercise stations along the way to help with a good workout. They also offer complimentary Yoga on a Wednesday and Friday and Pilates on a Monday and Saturday between 0800-0900am, great to work off that fantastic food.
You can also take yourself off with one of their garden tour books and discover the flora and fauna at East Winds or you could ask the Head Gardener to take you around the beautiful grounds. Don't forget to stop and say hello to Eric the parrot who loves to show off!
The pool is a nice size and has a swim up pool bar. This is not a staffed bar but you can have fun following the cocktail recipes provided or making up your own cocktail! They have a nice stretch of beach, perfect for a stroll along at sunset.

East Winds is a quaint resort, with a really convivial atmosphere. I loved the Superior Garden Cottages, located at the bottom of the hill in Rondavel style rooms with delightful little tables outside with thatched umbrella's giving shade. The gardens, are without a doubt, the most beautiful I have seen.

East Winds is a traditional resort providing an exclusive experience for those who value understated elegance and simple relaxation on the stunning Caribbean island of St Lucia. Lovely secluded quiet hotel, nice and social so you can meet other people if you wish, lovely gardens, Yoga and Pilates pavilion, Piano concerts. East Winds has many repeat guests, plus in the past has been known for the more discerning guest, but now these guests are recommending the hotel to their grown up children, therefore they are bringing in the younger generation with their excellent reputation, food and wine. As the hotel is fully inclusive with single storey sweet bedrooms, with a Caribbean yet English charm. Set on 14 Acres with just 30 rooms the Boutique feeling is intimate and friendly. There is a fun Pool bar, where it is an honesty bar, where you can mix your own drinks and you can sit on stools in the pool to drink them.

East Winds is definitely one of the lower category hotels that we offer, I would say high 3* /4* level, but it is a good all inclusive resort which is on the smaller side, as most all inclusive resorts tend to be larger. The rooms are comfortable and nicely done. The property is also right on the beach, so no long steps down to clamber up or down!

East Winds is a tranquil and quiet garden oasis next to a lovely white sand beach. You would never know it was there as it is only a short way from Rodney Bay yet a world away from the hustle and bustle. I must admit I thought of East Winds as being an older couples hotel as it is very quiet and maybe a touch old fashioned. However, both times I have visited I have noticed that the guests are a real mix of young and old and everyone has nothing but praise for the hotels warm welcome, service and atmosphere. Many guests return year after year and the octagonal superior rooms in the gardens seem to be the most popular choice. A word of caution though, they're not air conditioned so if you are worried about the heat, opt for the slightly more luxurious deluxe or oceanfront rooms. Furnishings are a little on the rustic Caribbean side, but still very comfortable. The hotel is very well run and managed and is a great option if you like to stay all inclusive and not move far from the beach or gardens. Entertainment is a steel band at lunch or a pianist in the evenings, definitely low key. There's a help yourself bar by the pool which is understandably popular. If you're looking for bright lights and night life, this probably isn't the place for you, however, if you want an away from it all break and to be really looked after, this could be just the place
