Historical Traveler Reviews Harmony Suites Castries
Average hotel service.
After staying at Harmony Suites for four nights I felt that the Trip advisor reviews I had read were misleading. The airconditioning in two of the waterfront suites were malfunctioning when we arrived and it was not until late into the first night that a suite with a working a/c was found for us. The complimentary breakfast was stale and poor quality. We found the hotel staff, particularly at the front desk, to be unfriendly and not very knowledegable about tours to sights such as the Soufriere volcano. We eventualy just hired a car and had a wonderful trip there. On the plus side, the location of the waterfront suites are fantastic.
My parents and I stayed here for 2 weeks. The set up is goregous and the views from the hotel are spectaluar. The restuarant serve nice meals and the staff were very polite and friendly. Over the island, the people were welcoming and Rodney Bay have a different range of resturants within a 2 minute walk. The trips around the island can be booked through the hotel as well as St. Lucian cab drivers willing to take you around the best views and shops on the island. Very well located and overall a very enjoyable stay.
Waterfront relaxation in Harmony suites
Arrived back in the U.K this week totally recharged and relaxed after staying in the ugraded suites on the waterfront of Rodney Bay.
If you want a small initimate quiet stay then book these suites -where else would you be able to have a boat pick you up on your own private deck and have waterside dining. Enjoy watching the activity on the bay and discover hummingbirds on flowers on the verander.
The suites are large with a double hot tub. We loved the freedom of being able to visit other restaurants and enjoy the culture of Rodney Bay.
The Fantastic Harmony Suites
We have now stayed at the Harmony Suites 4 times in 6 six years, always in the Waterfront Suites which are very clean and spacious. I cant praise the friendly staff highly enough and look forward to our next visit. The restaurants in Rodney Bay are outstanding especially The Charthouse, Razmatazz, Memories of Hong Kong, Spinnakers and the bars such as The Happy Days Bar and Hooters and also Cats Whiskers. If anyone wants any info or advice please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org but there is nowhere better.
The trip Advisor is a litte off - the hotel is not in Castries - thats the busy capital city, 5 miles ot the south. the hotel is in THE HEART of Rodney Bay which all will tell you is the tourism epicentre of St. lucia.
I stayed there during Decmber 2004 and found the rooms to be clean, spacious and well apointed, especially when one considers the low prices charged. the waterfront resturant has a deck ideal for drinking in the both the beautiful local scenery and the beautiful local BEER !
Seriouslyy though, its 2 minutes from the islands best beach, its located within easy easy walking distance of a score of resturants and bars (check out Castawys bar around the corner for a good mix of local and expats alike)) the people at the hotel were great. Friendly, competent and oh so heplful, If you want a smaller more intimate venue still in the heart of it all, Harmony Suites is a must !!
Hotel harmony suites
my self and my wife spent a week at the harmony suites hotel in st lucia
at rodney bay
i cannot express what a good time we both had .the hotel room was very good and the staff excelent i would recomend this hotel to anyone the resort was very nice as well nice beach good food and nice bars
overall a very good holiday
we traveled on 6 december 2004
The accommodation and the staff at this hotel was exceptional, and in a prime location close to all amenities.
If you have not experienced this caribbean island it is a must, and the Jazz Festival was inexpensive and to die for. My best holiday ever and I have travelled.
I have just returned from a weeks vacation where i stayed at Harmony Suites and i have to say it was a wonderful experience. The staff were always courteous and friendly and at times went beyond their normal duties to ensure that our stay was memorable for all the right reasons.
Friendly staff and great location
I had the pleasure of staying at Harmony Suites in June of 2002 and again in November of that year. The rooms were very clean and the service was quite commendable. I was plesantly surprised to come back in November and find that renovations had been undertaken while I was away. The hotel had a new look and a very cheerful and tropical feel.
I found the staff to me very helpful and friendly. The restaurant that overlooks Rodney Bay is serves delightful local dishes and is worth a visit even if you aren't staying at the hotel.
The best thing about the hotel though is its location. It is a two minute walk from Reduit Beach (the best in St. Lucia) and is easily within walking distance of many shops and other fine restaurants.
A great alternative to the huge, impersonal resorts!
STAY SOMEWHERE ELSE
We have traveled extensively in the Caribbean and always been pleased with our hotels . We were very disappointed in the Harmony! The beds were horrible we had to change them three times. We were not sleeping well and I resorted to sleeping on the hard tile floor, which was better than the beds.....We asked if we could check out early (We were not on a package vacation) and they told us we would be charged for 3 extra days if we left early. They were very rude about it!!! The staff with the exception of 1 or 2 people was not friendly... The location was fine but for 120 dollars a night we were unimpressed. I would have tried something else if we could of but they ended up really putting a bad taste in our mouth about St. Lucia and damaging our vacation. Save your money and try somewhere else.... we ran across a place when we were trying to switch called the Tiger Lilly...small closer to the beach and the staff seemed really nice...I can't vouch but anything is better than the Harmony!
