Perched above Smugglers Cove beach, the hotel occupies an elevated position in the north of the island, with unrivalled views across to Martinique and Pigeon Island.

Kate B is here to help give you the inside track.

The 49 Spanish colonial-style bedrooms (think hand painted tiles and white washed walls) are arranged in a hacienda style layout. Many of the rooms have their own private swimming pools, and are all arranged to interconnect seamlessly, making it the ideal hotel for families.

The hotel owns a 46 foot Sea Ray motor yacht, available for private charter and perfect for exploring the nearby islands. Why not pop over to Martinique for lunch, or find a secluded spot with a packed lunch prepared by the hotel?

Cap Maison boasts some of the best food on the island, with St Lucia's French heritage being a major inspiration. The location of The Cliff at Cap is unbeatable, as the name suggests, it is literally on the edge of the cliff with views over the ocean adding to the experience.

Smugglers Cove beach is directly below the hotel and easily accessible - great snorkelling and a beach bar serving delicious cocktails. There are two swimming pools, a spa, and a fantastic wine cellar where tastings can be organised as well as supper for up to 8 people.

Children are also welcome at the hotel, and although there is no specific children's club, there are plenty of activities in the area for them to enjoy. There is also a golf course nearby.

Why we love it

For a touch of romance, head down to Rock Maison, a secluded spot on the beach where champagne is sent down to you on a zip line.
