La Dera is incredibly Beautiful . The staff were so friendly and helpful . I was lucky enough to have a quick chat with the owner and she was kind enough to give me some insight about the history of the resort.The room ( hilltop dream suite x2 ) was outstanding , The view is incredible! so beautiful i had to look twice many times to see if it was reality . The ocean is so calm and how it meets the sky on the horizon is the closest thing I've seen to heaven . literally sat by my pool and watched hummingbirds fly by 5 feet away .The food was fantastic , the music ( fourth world ) reggae band were fantastic. I could go on forever about this resort. Im not even close to complimenting everything about this wonderful place.Also like to say the management and staff went so out of their way to make our stay so special.People can review and say this resort is "expensive" .... well I disagree ,I want to say thank you to the family that build this wonderful resort . The patience and engineering to build such a beautiful place and give us the opportunity to experience such beauty ill be forever grateful .Thumbs up all around!!! Go visit at least once in your life!!!Thank you Ladera, Family & staff .We will Return!!
Last week, on Good Friday, we stopped in for a wonderful lunch in an idyllic setting, high above the sea and looking out at the Piton Mountains. Party of 8, our table was waiting for us, food and service were excellent and it was fairly priced. I would say it's a can't miss spot when in the area.
Was really looking forward to a nice getaway here with my husband. One thing is for sure, the views are spectacular. Some of the most beautiful I have ever seen, and we've been all over. However, the service was not good. In fact, it was borderline mediocre. Caroline at the front desk was lovely, helpful and cheerful, but aside from her, the rest of the staff seemed bothered by us and just downright annoyed to have to be there.The room was very clean, but as you can probably tell, seemed dated. I did not expect the new resort type of feel like a four seasons, ritz, viceroy, etc. but the turquoise pools and various decor just made this place seem out of 1985. Nevertheless, the view from room X5 was beautiful, the pool was warm (heated pool is a must), bed was comfortable and toiletries nice. The shower would either get burning hot or freezing cold, I took one QUICK shower and that was it. Didn't bother to alert the staff since they were not very forthcoming. Food was not good. We ordered a cheese plate to room service and what a waste and took 45 minutes. They told us the resort was only half full - why so long? The person who delivered it was annoyed. Dashenee was not worth going to, we are foodies, so maybe if you haven't truly experienced great food you might like this, but to us it was mediocre at best, and the service too. The second night we decided to eat in the bar area and it was much better, as was the service.We sat at the pool both days and had to go in to the restaurant ourselves to order drinks, water. No poolside service. They seemed surprised we wanted to eat and drink at the pool (on one day we were the only ones there).On the plus side, we saw no bugs - none. No mosquitos, spiders, nothing. Nothing even in the room and the rooms were quiet. I don't know why people had issues with these things.We left after 2 days and went to the Viceroy, and while, I know it is a "different" and newer experience, the staff alone could not even compare. Unfortunately, we were disappointed with everything at Ladera other than the views and would not go back. I would advise people to stay at the Viceroy if you can swing it and venture to the bar at Dashnee for drinks and appetizers and the view one night.
Our travel organiser arranged for us to stay here in between flights. The hotel is in a gorgeous location looking out onto the sea and the Pitons.We were only expecting to get the use a single room at best, but were given a complete suite, together with our own private pool. There was a small problem on arrival as the receptionist wasn't expecting us, but she resolved the problem while we were having lunch and we spent the afternoon relaxing in the suite and enjoying the view. The problem was perhaps caused by our going to the restaurant reception (as indicated by staff) rather than the hotel reception whose existence wasn't immediately apparent.Only one criticism: there was a live band playing in the bar which was, to me, very annoying as it detracted enormously from the experience. Once we got away, or they stopped, paradise returned.
I visited Ladera for a few nights in December. The room was great but service was not so much. The first day, I called for ice and waited over an hour and it never showed up. We gave up and went to the bar, where we waited a while for our drink order to be taken (we even sat at the bar). Drinks were expensive and did not even taste good. Then we went to the restaurant and the food was good but slow service. The cook even came out to greet everyone for his tip but we had not even eaten or received our drinks yet. The next day we changed rooms to the Hilltop Dream Suite and they put us in the narrow room with barely a view of the Pitons and a bed far from the view. I called to say it was not the room we paid for (completely different from the advertisement) and they explained that not every room looks like that one in the picture. I understand not every room of that level looks the same, but they should all be of the same quality. They ended up moving us to another room. The next day we ordered room service and it was not good at all. My husband ordered a medium well steak and it was mostly rare. Overall the room is beautiful, but the service was mediocre/poor. The staff was rude. For the prices they charge, they should pay more attention to giving their customers a better experience.
