Tropical getaway to remember !!

I stayed at The Reserve for 5 days while on a working vacation and enjoyed the time immensely. The Reserve was a welcomed destination after a long day and a half of traveling. When I arrived the housekeeper, Irene, was there to meet me and show me the condo and I met Mark, the groundskeeper, who was friendly and helpful as well. The Reserve is conveniently located near groceries, restaurants and shops, all within walking distance. When not working, I spent most of my time reading by or floating in the pool and sightseeing. Having a fully equipped kitchen was a plus, it was easy to prepare meals and more importantly, coffee. There was a really enjoyable breeze/wind during my stay that kept the condo comfortable enough to go without using the air conditioner once. I've recommended St. Lucia and The Reserve to all my friends and am looking forward to when I can go back!

Thank you for taking the time to post your review and am delighted to hear that you managed to "relax whilst on a working holiday"! You certainly accomplished your job with the true Caribbean spirit in mind!

It was a pleasure having you as our guest and hope to see you in the near future for a holiday of pure relaxation!

With sunny regards from Zaneia in St.Lucia,

Wow ! We have just had a holiday of a lifetime at 'The Reserve' at Rodney Bay thanks to Kevan and Cheryl, owners of 'Be Special' holidays.
The appt at 'The Reserve' in Rodney Bay is amazing ! It is spacious, stylishly furnished and in a brilliant location only a few minutes walk to all amenities. To the rear of the property is a lovely garden which is maintanined every day and a beautiful pool which is cleaned every day and is right on the edge of the marina.
At The Reserve you have the choice of being independant or being treated like royalty.
We did both ! Cooking in is a dream as the kitchen is so well equipped, with every conceivable piece of equipment you would ever Require ! But if you would rather be waited on , Lisa will be on hand to cook breakfast, lunch and dinner for you and boy is she a good cook ! 
The appt was kept immaculate every day by Slyvia, with fresh towels in abundance !
There is a huge TV with satellite and DVD , which my partner loved for watching sport etc
The bedrooms have A/C and a ceiling fan and the beds are very comfortable !
No need to worry about transport to and from the airport, you will have a chauffeur driven car awaiting you, with ice cold towels and refreshments on hand ( rum punch included) !
With Kevan and Cheryl's knowledge of the island, they will help ensure that anything you may like to can be arranged. 
We had great fun fishing off the jetty and snorkeling in the pretty bays close by.
The reserve is in a very quiet position and so made for a very peaceful but fun holiday.
There is so much to do and see in St Lucia , if you are looking for a high standard of accommodation. Look no further. 
Also , in addition for anyone on a gluten free diet, there is quite a variety of products in all supermarkets and health shops. I was in my element as this is something that I do worry about whilst away.

The Reserve does have there very own pastry chef at hand too, should you need fresh bread or cakes etc baking. 
Book, you won't be disappointed ! We'll be back !!
