a traveler Canada
We're used to going to large all inclusive resorts in the Caribbean but this time we wanted a different type of vacation. We chose Ladera because we wanted a small resort with lots of privacy. It was everything we hoped it would be and more. Coffee in the morning in the plunge pool overlooking the pitons was amazing. We did the soufriere experience excursion as well. It was worth it. The locals are very nice and not pushy or pressure you into buying their products. The mineral bath at the botanical gardens did wonders for my skin. The guides at the sights were informative and took pride in their jobs. Don't forget cash for tips! I was surprised by how loud it became at night. The earplugs helped and I got used to it on the second night. It's all part of the experience. Dinner at Dasheene: The food was incredible. It was very pricey but after seeing how every dish we ordered was delicious we didn't bother finding another place to eat. Lastly, the staff are what make this resort a great one. Everyone was friendly and so helpful.
