Reviews - What do customers think about St. Lucia (Landmark Visitors Guides Series) (Landmark Visitors Guides Series)?
No good. Mar 25, 2008
This book was disappointing. It spends almost all its pages charting a theoretical trip from the capital down to the south and precious few pages describing and recommending restaurants, sights, activities, and lodgings. For all of the important things a traveler who might not stay at an all-inclusive resort wants to know, information is scant. For instance, "Best Beach: Anse la Raye." Why? How is it different than the others? If I'm visiting the Caribbean for the beaches, I want to know more. Most of the time, the author seems content simply to describe what's on the island rather than make any judgements or recommendations about what's there. Are the Daimond falls worth seeing, the Pitons worth climbing, the snorkel trips worth taking, the pricey resorts and hotels and restaurants worth visiting? If so, which ones are the best for those with limited time and money? The book is absolutely no help on this. It offers a few sentences on each place, but doesn't help you filter out the best options. Many of the sights and accomodations on St. Lucia have helpful websites, but the book contains no web addresses. There are also a few fallacies, such as "taxies are cheap and plentiful", which is incorrect on both counts. Rather than use this book, call the tourist board in St. Lucia. They were the best source we found in our time there.
Good for visit, but not for travel planning Feb 24, 2006
This book seems like it will be very helpful once you reach your destination, but is not a good resource for helping you book your trip. The lodging options were very limited & there were no e-mail addresses or websites, only phone numbers. I don't know about you, but I would prefer to not deluge my phone bill with international calls.
St Lucia Guide Aug 30, 2005
This book is one of the best travel handbooks we have read. It gives a broad, concise and user friendly guide to the Island of Saint Lucia. As parents who have a family that has moved there we needed to know about the Island, it's good points, it's attractions, how to get there and a number of other questions. These have all been answered and we look forward to our Christmas in the West Indies.
Excellent Book! Jul 31, 2005
Thank you for sending me the book! It was in great condition and will make planning my wedding and honeymoon in St. Lucia much easier!
General Guide May 13, 2005
This guide has a nice collection of pictures (as compared to The Rough Guide to St Lucia), but feels much more general and outdated. If you don't need pictures, I would go for The Rough Guide! (I am still waiting to receive one more guide for St Lucia). I am heading to the Coconut Bay Resort for my Honeymoon in June.
