Lu­cian Lodg­ings Two Ways

Tropical Traveller Magazine - - ISLANDHAVEN -

La Ter­rasse, rem­i­nis­cent of a pri­vate res­i­dence, does dou­ble duty as a French restau­rant where the pork ten­der­loin and the crème caramel are to die for. Hus­band-wife team Clau­dia and Thomas, Gu­atemalan and French-Nor­we­gian re­spec­tively, wel­comed us warmly. Our spa­cious abode, the largest of four rooms avail­able to tourists, of­fered touches such as plates, eat­ing uten­sils and pa­per tow­els. The pa­tio brought re­lax­ation - the per­fect lo­ca­tion for trav­el­ers wish­ing to avoid a busy ho­tel.

At the Coco Palm Ho­tel, a large pool oc­cu­pies the heart of ac­tiv­ity, unit­ing vis­i­tors sun­ning and read­ing. The open-air bar and full-ser­vice restau­rant added to our plea­sure. The break­fast buf­fet de­liv­ered a hearty eater’s dream with of­fer­ings both lo­cal and Amer­i­can: fish cakes, fried bakes, plan­tains, ba­con, sausage and omelettes made-tore­quest in front of a life-sized mu­ral of St. Lu­cian his­tory.
