Cap Maison Resort & Spa
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
This is a 4.5 star hotel. On an island – hopping vacation, we stayed at the Cap Maison for several days, and generally enjoyed ourselves, despite a problem area.While the hotel is not flawless, it certainly provides an OK spot in the Caribbean -- with a qualification.Our room was very comfortable, but not particularly posh. The bed was quite comfortable, and the room was enormous, with a good view of Pigeon Island. The bathroom was, likewise, perfectly acceptable, and had good toiletries from Aqua di Parma.My only complaint, regarding the facilities, would generally be the observation that they are not fresh, in a Caribbean sense. Rather, they are Spanish, dowdy. Otherwise, they are quite comfortable and the maid service was effective.The food at the hotel is remarkably good, given the general quality of meals in the Caribbean. Likewise, the bartenders are certainly well-acquainted with the wants of global tourists. You will not suffer through endless fruity rum drinks at this hotel – – unless you want to. You can actually get a good martini at this hotel.The views, at least from the pool level, are beautiful. While the beach is cute, and the food is good at the Naked Fisherman, we found it to be pretty unwelcoming. This was where the hotel really let us down.We are a same – sex couple, who are hardly demonstrative in public. Nevertheless, we found the staff at the Naked Fisherman to be cold, at best. In fact, we suspected they were downright hostile. This suspicion was confirmed by the staff's interactions with our straight friends who were also staying at the hotel. In short, our friends were treated with a warmth and hospitality that was notably lacking in our own interactions with the beach staff. This differential treatment was noted by ourselves, and certainly by our friends.While I realize they are cultural differences between the United States and the English-speaking Caribbean, it was nonetheless jarring to realize that our simple presence on the beach could be disturbing to employees. In fact, it took us a couple of days to realize what was going on. It was, in a word, a bummer.I am no cultural warrior, and frankly I could care less whether St. Lucia embraces gay couples. However, I can say that while the upstairs staff apparently grins and bears it, the seaside staff cannot. Sadly, that makes the whole scene feel phony. I don't want false welcomes, and I also don't want indignity. We may have gotten the former, and I really feel we had the latter as well. Back to St. Barth's.
We had a great stay at Cap Maison. The property is located on the northern part of the island, which is close to many of the towns and attractions, but it was far enough away to be nice and quiet and away from any distractions. The hotel's grounds were impeccable, and I loved the Mediterranean-style architecture. The look makes it feel like you're staying on a Greek island. We really loved the small pool with one of the best views you could have on the island. Looking over the Caribbean, the pool gets a nice breeze and also is a great vantage point to see the sunset. Finally, the food is fantastic there (both in the restaurant and served to you poolside). We ate at a number of restaurants around the island, and this was one of the best. If you're looking for somewhere quiet, not too large, well maintained and luxurious feeling, this is a great place to stay.
I didn't realize the drive from vieux fort would take almost 2.5 hours otherwise I would have booked something further south however the countryside is beautiful and the end location is top notch. Very friendly staff and the best rum punch I have ever had. The beach is quiet and small. There are a lot of steps to access the beach but once down there it's really a nice little cove. The amenities in the beach are all readily available to guests at the hotel and the guys and girls who work there are helpful knowledgeable about the island and fun. The naked fisherman was in my opinion a little bit more of a value than the cliff side but that is to be expected. The cliff side restaurant is beautiful but it was r worth the price in my opinionThe rooms were very spacious and well maintained clean sheets and plenty of hot water and water pressure it was a relaxing stay but like a lot of hotels you have to drive a little bit to get more value for the food options.
Having been to St Lucia before a few times, we wanted to try a new place - and I'm so glad we found Cap Maison! I couldn't agree more with the other reviews posted here, this is a very special place. Upon arrival you are greeted with a cool lovely minty scented towel and champagne in the reception area. No need to do the usual check in as this you can do in the comfort of your room and bring back to reception at your convenience. We were then taken on a tour of the property before shown to our room, a junior suite which is very spacious and we even have an extra bed in there for our daughter. An outside shower an added bonus and a terrace to enjoy a drink whilst watching the sunset :-). Everything in the minibar is included if you are on all inclusive. The hotel has an honesty shop (where you can pick out some snacks and charge to your room at reception) and also an honesty bar where you can help yourself to drinks and write down the charge to your room. We have the all inclusive package and I think this is spot on. The food is varied each evening with a few tapas set menus a couple of nights each week. The food is absolutely amazing - one of the best places we've been to - and we travel a lot. This is a boutique hotel where the staff are super friendly and relaxed. The atmosphere is great and the view around the hotel over the sea is truly amazing - if you are looking for paradise look no further. We have got into a bit of a routine spending the morning by the pool and having lunch at The naked Fisherman, a bar on the Beach only accessible to hotel guests (92 steps down to the beach). The beach is quite small but perfect for trying a bit of body boarding, snorkelling and just jumping in the waves which was my daughter's favourite :-). The food at the bar is freshly made and serves good lunch bites. I can recommend a glass of 'Minuty', a blush rose wine which is served in a chilled wine glass. There isn't much for children to do but as our daughter is very social, she made friends very easily by the pool and on the beach. One request would be to have some children's activities during school holidays - could just be arts & crafts but I'm sure the many children here this week would enjoy that. Also stocking up on some children's favourite ice creams like vanilla and chocolate would be a winner. Upon coming down for breakfast this morning I was greeted by my name by Keisha - very impressed as there are 50 rooms/apartments here and it made me feel really special. Another shout out for the pool man who's been looking after us every day with a little cooling bag with bottles of still water - I love this gesture! Also the staff at The naked Fisherman, Bonil who has been looking after us for breakfast and/or lunch every day. Her suggestion of the chicken kebab at the Beach bar is very yummy. We have had an amazing time here and can't wait to come back. Now time to relax the last couple of days and get lost in paradise...:-)
Our room was out of this world. Private, ocean-facing with a small pool. Rooms were generous in size and the service was exceptional. The shower alone was worth the stay.The property itself is gorgeous. The beach is isolated (down a flight of 100 steps) which helped keep the crowd down. Nice mid-size gym and fantastic concierge service to help with all bookings. I really liked the honor bar for soft drinks and such. My two modest suggestions: stock more food options in the store who don't want a formal meal and increase the diversity of offerings at breakfast.
