Romantic Paradise

The location is a bit of a drive from the airport and the long (2 mile) side road to get to the property is full of potholes and forces your car to crawl to the hotel. But wow! Once you get there, it is all worth it. The grounds are beautiful and immaculately manicured. The staff is very friendly. The water is crystal clear and the snorkling and diving are excellent. The restaurant is top notch! You could just stay at this property if you are looking for seclusion and romance! Getting to other locations/attractions will require either a rental car or you can sign up for guided tours that leave from the hotel. The cottages are only one room with a bathroom and seperate outside romantic garden shower. The bed is very comfortable. The decks have outstanding views and each has a hammock. Very unique and outstanding property. I highly recommend it!

The location of this property is isolated and a bumpy ride to get to. It is in a beautiful location with great snorkeling and diving right there. No hustle or bustle there! However if you want to experience the other sites on the island, you need to rent a car, which we did, or take the guided tours which can be set up with the management.

A unique place to stay.

Took my mother here for 4 days and we had an amazing time. The food was awesome! Make sure your stay includes a Wednesday because the creole buffet was outstanding! The only thing was the stairs up and down to the beach, you have to be athletic to make it up and down. My mother had a hard time at 60 ( mind you she was a little tipsy off the beach drinks haha ) and also the vendors -a lot of them! And would hit on us everyday. I think they hassled us more because we were two women instead of a couple.

Perfect honeymoon

Ti Kaye was just the escape we needed after planning a big wedding. The atmosphere, service and food were outstanding. We stayed for a week in an oceanview cottage and took advantage of the beach, pool, snorkeling, kayaks and some of the day excursions. We didn't want to leave!

For the Quiet Vacation

We tried Ti Kaye (creole for small house) because we wanted some privacy and quiet relaxation on our honeymoon. It fit the bill perfectly. The Good: No Kids allowed! The main restaurant was excellent and the menu rotated enough to compensate for the fact that you have no other options without taking a 30 minute drive or excursion trip. The beach and snorkeling on site were world class. We didn't use the dive shop but the dive master was wonderful to talk to and other guests raved about their scuba trips. The room was comfortable and the outdoor shower was fun. The Average: We had some interesting experiences with the staff, which I think were cultural in nature, but who can say. As a californian I'm not used to gruffness the way a new englander might be. The land and sea excurion was a bit of false advertising which led to a little disappointment despite being "one of their most popular", don't be duped--it's a land tour, but they get you there by water taxi. The spa was nice, but the massage was only ok. if you plan to do any amount of your own food prep from a local grocer the "all inclusive" food options are a waste, you are unlikely to get additional value from a package. Just order what you want when you want and 9 times out of 10 you'd come ahead at the end of the week. THis is especially true if you want to share courses, instead of eating full meals. There is also the issue that the restaurant serves all meals on a very strict schedule, so unless you like keeping close watch on the clock, you'll probably miss a meal here or there. The Bad: Really, not much. My only complaints were the beach guys constantly pimping us shells (not the resort's fault). And the distance from shopping centers. We rented a car which was an adventure in and of itself. Also, if you like a popping social scene, this isn't what you're looking for.

Shopping tip: Not Applicable

If you're the type that likes to stock your fridge with groceries on vacation so you aren't as dependent on the resort, be sure to ask the airport shuttle driver to swing by a local grocer (who all take USD as well as EC), I'm sure they would oblige. Or otherwise take the Land and Sea tour early in the trip since they give you some time at the local market.

Just missing something

It's hard to criticize paradise, but this place just didn't do much for me. It is very secluded, so you are at their mercy for the duration with no real options for dining and entertainment. Just leaving the grounds is a 10-15 minute car ride over a driveway so rugged it will shake out your fillings. The locals are nice people, but the villages have nothing to offer. In retrospect, I may have likes the more commercial northern part of the island more. The room and cleanliness were very good, but the bed was terrible. About 5 nights into my stay, I commented that it felt like we were sleeping on boards. I lifted the mattress and there was no box spring. We were sleeping on boards. Breakfast is a nice buffet that is complimentary but gets boring after a week because it never changes. Lunch at the beach bar is pretty average. They limit dinner seating to about 1/3 of the main dining room tables so they can keep staff at a minimum. The beach is small... brown sand about 150 yards long and 15 yards wide at most. Still, it is very nice except the hours when the cruise line catamarans, between 3 and 5 at a time each with about 100 people, anchor 20 feet off shore. They take up the whole beach and put a lot of people in the water. The staff is pleasant but don't seem to understand how to please guests. One morning another guest and I went to get a banana from the breakfast bar and were refused because we were going on an outing for which they packed a breakfast/lunch. First time ever a server told me no at a free all-you-can-eat breakfast bar. Last item: they have a wine cellar they promote heavily. Four times I ordered a bottle of wine off their wine list, and they said they were out of that wine all four times. In each case they sent the sommelier to recommend, of course, a more expensive bottle of wine.

No One Will Find You Here!

I stayed at Ti Kaye with my husband for the first part of my honeymoon and we loved it. The room was very spacious with a fantastic view of Anse Cochon bay. The beach is very clean, but somewhat small and tourists from other hotels are brought in by boat to snorkel in the bay. There are plenty of tables in the hotel restaurants and the food (with the exception of a dry pork chop on day 1) was fantastic. We didn't leave the resort while we were there because the resort lies at the end of a long, unpaved, bumpy road, but we had plenty to keep us busy on the resort, including a wine tasting class, snorkeling, and a day at the beach. The outdoor shower was a great experience, but I probably wouldn't have liked it if we were there in the rainy season. The resort is well maintained and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.

FOUR YEARS IN A ROW

WE JUST RETURNED FROM OUR ANNUAL GETAWAY TO TI KAYE RESORT IN ST LUCIA. THE RESORT AND ITS SURROUNDING JUST GET BETTER EVERYTIME WE RETURN. THE ROOM HAS BEEN UPDATED WITH NEW FURNITURE. THE NEW CHEF, BILL, HAS ADDED NEW ITEMS ON THE MENU THAT ARE VERY CREATIVE AND USES LOCAL INGREDIANTS. THE STAFF AS USUAL FROM THE GENERAL MANAGERS TO THE GROUNDSKEEPERS ARE LIKE "FAMILY". WE PLAN TO RETURN EVERY YEAR.

The hotel is difficult to get to, however I viewed it as an adventure and enjoyed the scenic trip and seeing the local culture along the way. Once getting there it is a beautiful oasis, the staff is outstanding, the grounds gorgeous, However, it is very remote so you are on-site unless you want to pay for a lot of cabs, I would not recommend driving at night! Perfect resort to check out of life for a bit and enjoy the beauty!!
