The beach resort is idyllic. The welcome by staff friendly, helpful and genuine. The room superb, clean, well stocked and with a stunning view over the bay and also the Piton mountains. Food, a varied selection, well cooked and presented. Advice re a wide range of activities accurate and arrangements always spot on - member of staff was exceptional. Staff identified we were celebrating a significant anniversary and decorated our room with sparkling wine in the fridge. Overall, a lovely lovely holiday that will be hard to better. I must finally mention the staff - whatever their role they were just lovely people, thank you.
I stayed at Anse Chastanet for one week and it was the most relaxing, care-free week ever. The rooms were so unique and super comfortable and the tranquility I felt at the hotel is more than I've experienced anywhere else. The beaches are beautiful, clean and quiet (especially Anse ma min) and they serve the BEST burger I have ever eaten. The restaurants are wonderful - the food tastes great and they have lots of options and if you are a picky eater (like myself) they will do what they can to give you what you want. The staff are just amazing in every way- very friendly and accommodating. While I was staying at Anse Chastanet, I got the chance to go snorkelling, sailing and I took the Jazzy Sunset cruise. The Jazzy was tons of fun, the music was great and the staff kept it lively by getting us all up to dance. I'd have to say that my favourite part about each day was getting to go back to such a peaceful room and fall asleep to the sounds of the crickets and tree frogs. It was the most amazing place I've ever been and I can't wait to go back!!
In short - I loved Anse Chastanat!! Where to begin?? AC is a mid-sized beach resort about an hour's drive away from larger airport (UVF). It's big enough that there are a ton of activities and plenty of space, but it's not so big that everything feels cookie-cutter. (My sense is that every room is a little bit different.) You'll see the same resort employees all week long, and you'll probably get to know a fair number of them on the first name basis. The General Manager is quite visible and accessible on property, and you get the real sense that, from the top down, everyone at the resort is committed to making sure the guest experience is first-rate, special, and satisfying. You won't be waiting in lines here for meals, tables or drinks, and there's no need to reserve or worry about getting a beach hut. Plenty of space for everyone, and plenty of privacy too. I stayed in one of the open-air Premium Hillside rooms. It was September, and I didn't have a problem without A/C. The view was simply amazing (we could see the Pitons and the beach), and I truly enjoyed just spending time in the room. That said - to get this view, you need to walk up the hill from the main beach/reception/dining areas, and it's a pretty steep walk. (Other rooms are located much closer to the beach or main reception/dining areas - but they don't have the amazing view or the gigantic bathroom with the amazing view.)The food at the resort was excellent - we never left the resort all week, and I didn't feel like we needed to. For all-inclusive, I was HIGHLY impressed with the quality of everything I ate all week. We went diving all week long - excellent dive center/team. Great, well-maintained, rental gear -- no need to bring anything!! Some final notes -- there are a lot of stairs at this resort and although are shuttles available, this resort may not be the best choice if you have trouble with steep stairs. There is wifi available, but it was very slow (at least in our room) - so you'll get your email, but it was nearly impossible to stream or VPN into a remote network. Bring bug spray and use it!! Dress code is very casual at the resort (think flip flops, shorts, t-shirts, sun dresses). This place is super clean -- and well-maintained. I was at the resort as part of diving group. The resort is set up well for dive groups, group gatherings, and couples, but I'm not so sure how appealing it would be to families. I didn't see any kids during my vacation.
Getting there is half of the fun, once you are there for a few days you will understand why the road to the retreat is not the best. I like the idea of making it hard to get to, not on the "beaten path", keep it that way. Of course when two guys check in to a resort with a lot of couples and have requested one bed you usually get a look or two but not here. We did see a few other gay couples when we were there so its not something anyone thought twice about, which is nice. The staff made us feel very welcome and truly interested in getting to know us and joke and have fun. Everyone knew our names and we were greeted that way through out the resorts.We tried the several restaurants and they had a wine dinner one night as well which was great. The service in all of the restaurants were attentive and also you didnt feel pressured you had to leave as well, a nice pace which you set. The quality and especially the fruits and vegetables are great, we recommend trying some different and sharing so you can try it all. With that said, the resort is on a hill side so depending on your room location you will have a walk some longer than others, They do offer a shuttle service and you can arrange for that if you want We found the walking was great and we just knew how much we ate the night before....The rooms are beautiful and unique, each is a bit different i think. The resort is set on the hillside and is open air. We love the quiet and the noise of the nature, we both slept very well. We used the net above the bed and just let the breeze come through the room. Activities are great sooooo much to do. Scuba diving is great and right in front of the resort and close boat rides away. Mt. Biking, Sailing, Kayaking watersports but dont miss the bird watching with Meno. Meno is a rockstar, he has so much knowledge and is the best teacher... what was supposed to be a short trip ended up a few hours because it was the three of us only and we were just having a great time. We walked through the property behind the second beach... its really a must do, birds, flora and natures pharmacy at all your finger tips with Dr. Meno. Meno guides a few trips off the property as well like the Superman Waterfall and others which are nice to do as well. We cant say enough about this little slice of paradise, we felt comfortable everywhere we went, the staff were great, service spot on, they make it easy to unplug, and stay busy or not during the day, we found ourselves tired from the days activities and getting rest for the next days...
I truly enjoyed my stay at Anse Castanet and am looking forward to going back! This hotel is great for solo travelers, groups, divers, those that want to unplug and get away, and high adventure travelers. The resort has 2 beach areas so you can choose to be more secluded if you want. It has on-site dive shop (which is excellent), non-motorized water sports (included), mountain biking, hiking, and so much more! The views from the hilltop rooms are absolutely stunning and will take your breath away! The resort has a very 'nature' feel to it and offers you the chance to unplug as rooms do not have televisions or clocks - stop and enjoy yourself! You will not get the feeling that you are in 'some hotel' in the Caribbean - here you will actually feel like you are in the caribbean!Some of my favorite parts of the resort are: The diving right off the property is excellent so you can shore dive if you want/prefer. The food was excellent and I have dietary issues that the chef & waitstaff took very seriously. The views are very majestic and romantic. The staff is super friendly, welcoming and helpful. Stay for a week and you will have extended your family! It is a smaller, boutique property so if you are with friends it is easy to find one another. The beach bar was full of activity so if you are a single traveler it's easy to mingle.Some things that may concern the next traveler: The resort is set on a mountainside so the walk to/from your room is steep but they do have a shuttle if you prefer to wait. Most of the rooms (other than the beachside) do not have air conditioning. They are open-air and the breeze keeps them cook (along with a few fans) but if you are a person in need of heat relief then you will want to stay in the beachside rooms. Only rooms with private plunge pools have pools. There is no 'nightlife', although the entertainment in the evenings is excellent (ends by 10 PM)Overall I LOVED this property, the food, the staff and the atmosphere. I look forward to returning again!
