"This resort is top-notch and awesome, but not for everyone (more on this later). We received an upgraded room (a 2 bdrm villa) with a great view of the Pitons, 3 levels, sleeps 5, and a fridge, and an amazing pool with hanging chairs! It was uniquely decorated, very spacious and beautifully furnished. The food at Dasheene was always good, but not a lot of variety and a bit pricey (we decided that it was worth it for the view which is nothing short of spectacular). The included continental breakfast was not quite enough variety and limited items, and so it was worth it for the $6 per person upgrade to get that and what we wanted from the menu. (Really, the resort should just go ahead and include one menu item of choice with their included breakfast, since the included breakfast was so scant) They did provided free transports to the beach (15 min ride at Jalousey Resort), and Anse Chasnet Beach (near Jade Mountain which had very good snorkling), but the seats you get on these beaches are not that great, since Ladera doesn't own the beach resorts. This resort and the taxi's, food, etc. are a bit on the pricey side, but way less money, and more island charm and ambiance than Jade Mountain which I toured (more upscale, modern and sterile). At Ladera, the open concept of the rooms was good in many ways and not so good in a few choice ways. The views and resort are absolutely stunningly beautiful, the website doesn't do it justice at all, you will be blown away by the beauty of the resort itself and the views from almost every room and restaurant. But the negatives are that a few creepy crawly and even a few scary things (albeit mostly harmless!), may come into your room at night, especially around dusk when the lights come on (most common: birds, smallish tree frogs, largish but cute and harmless lizards, biting mosquitoes, moths and even bats...). But for the most part if you leave your lights off a night and use your flashlight and mosquito coils, it's minimal and you actually get used to it. Having only 3 walls and no AC isn't for everyone, but we requested a fan for our bedroom (includes a ceiling fan that works, but won't keep you cool on the hot nights), and got that so nights 3-4 were okay, even though May and June are the hottest months in St. Lucia. There also is the high rainforest noise level at night from all the above mentioned creatures, so the earplugs provided were an essential touch for me, although my husband liked it and didn't wear them and was able to sleep. The resort is mainly honeymoon couples, and rather hilly and difficult to walk around, so no kids, and no one who has trouble walking or with nature/insects should stay there. (mostly active, adventurous, youngish types because it is incredibly romantic.) The pools in room are cute but mostly cold, so if that is an issue, get one that has a heater (ask when you book, ours did but you had to leave it running for the heat to work), and there are a few rooms with AC, so you can also book those in advance. Also, inquire about water pressure, some of the newer suites (hilltop dream suites) have much better water pressure than the one we had. They vowed to work on this, and they are opening a new resort section later this year, (so that could be the culprit). We really loved this unique nature concept and the natural beauty of Ladera, worth the stay, the price, the trip, and is truly a once in a lifetime experience, and we plan to go back in a cooler month (Dec-April is the high, cooler, non-rainy season). But if you hate any heat, bugs, or stairs, this is not the place for you."
