"The place to stay in St. Lucia"
There was our second trip The Body Holiday. We returned because of the location, facility, and most importantly, the staff. Every staff member has a smile on their face, stops to talk to you, and is genuinely interested in learning about your time at the resort. There is something for everybody at The Body Holiday. You can learn to sail, scuba, water […] ski, play golf, take exercise classes, or just spend the day on the beautiful beach, making sure the ocean doesn't go anywhere. Included in your stay, is a daily spa treatment. That spa treatment can be a massage, facial, or body wrap. Some American men may be rolling there eyes, but don't knock any of it until you have tried it. Most of the clientele is European, mainly British. This is a real plus, because you get the opportunity to meet different and interesting people. The dining tends to run on a European schedule. Lunch doesn't start till 12:30pm, and can be as heavy or light as one desires. Dinner isn't until 7:30, but is one of the highlights of the day. You can eat in the Caribleu dining area ( an open air restaurant), Tao (an exquisite high end, not to be missed meal) or the more informal Beach Grill. This resort is for adults. They recommend nobody under the age of 16. This is not because of any craziness, they simply do not cater in any way to children. There are no kids menus or activities.

Two families with teen and young adult children spent several days there for a perfect vacation. The kids tried the scuba, snorkeling, kayaking, catamarans, waterskiing, samba dancing, and massage treatments. And they ate and drank a lot. The adults did some of the above, with more spa treatments, some yoga, and less eating and drinking. It was very […] easy to do anything anyone wanted to try. Our kids would've like a livelier night scene, it is mostly middle aged and older couples, but we parents were happy to keep them more focused on all of the activities offered during the day.

"Nice, but overpriced"
We had a great time but this was mostly due to the beach and watersports. Food was pretty good, room was nice but much less than expected for $1000 per night (grand luxury waterfront), we had much nicer rooms and as good or better food in couples/sandals type resorts in DR and Jamaica.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would Absolutely Stay Here Again"
We loved the bodyholiday! We never repeat places, especially in the Caribbean since it's sort of like one you've seen one place, you've kind of have seen them all - but this is now the exception! We loved that this resort was focused on wellness, activity and relaxation. It struck just the right balance between feeling like a large property and yet […] still feel the quality service/attention of a small boutique hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel and good"
My wife had lost her luggage from an airline mistake of loading and the hotel staff did all the work to track it Down and get it for us. The bery next day after returning from the beach the luggage was sitting in our room already. They were great with any problems or to help and assist in Anyway from teaching us how to use the water equipment or showing […] all the possible things we could do at the resort! Highly recommend the resort!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Total Body Bliss!"
My husband and I recently spent one full week of what I now call "Body Bliss" at The Body Holiday Le Sport resort and spa. The food was fantastic (and I'm a foodie snob), the staff and service were phenomenal and the the wide range of inclusive activities and outstanding spa treatments kept us feeling like Royalty! A special call-out is required of […] a few terrific members of the resorts' team-- Sir Calvin (as we called him) who manages the clubhouse bar and dining area is the official customer-service captain!! Sir Calvin-- please put the 'Elijah Special' drink on the menu-- Elijah can tell you the ingredients, we loved it!! Ambrose does an amazing job keeping all of the flowers and landscaping breath-takingly beautiful! And Ms. Mini (native of Bali, Indonesia) has magical hands and provides an authentic Bali massage that one should not miss!! 'Ms. Dayanne' in concierge handles her business extremely well, and makes sure your stay is great! The Friday night sunset cruise made we cry joyful grateful tears upon departure -- "St. Lucia We Love, St. Lucia We Love, St. Lucia We Love".... and I MUST come back!!

"A completely restful and rejuvenating expereince."
Overall, one of the finest resorts we have stayed at. The Caribbean can sometimes render resorts somewhat shabby in appearance, not true here. The property and the hotel were pristine. The food was excellent and the staff were very attentive to your needs. While sitting on the beach, you "raise your flag" and within minutes a staff person is there to […] attend to whatever your needs. There is a plethora of activities included, sailing, water skiing, tubing, to name a few. If booking through Expedia, it is definitely advisable to go directly to the resort website and book your inclusive daily spa treatments in advance. We did not do this, and the resort generated a random schedule before our arrival. The problem is that most of those appointments were early in the morning, which is the least popular time. Trying to reschedule to the afternoon was nearly impossible. As for the room, they were neat and comfortable. While they say there are 110V outlets in each room, ours had only one, and none in the bathroom. It was a minor inconvenience, but adapters would have been helpful. This was our best experience in the Caribbean to date. We did not really like Jamaica or Antigua, but we would go back to The BodyHoliday in St. Lucia in a minute.

"Best. Hotel. Ever."
This hotel is awesome. The staff is second to none, the food is delicious and it's very clean. My girl got seasick on the sunset cruise that is on a large boat, I told the staff and they called up Eric who whisked us away to the mainland to go back to the hotel on a windsail type boat. How's that for awesome service? I'll definitely be back. Also, […] I noticed a lot of couples at this resort---guys if you want to score major points with your woman book it now!!!

"Clever business model which is clearly working wel"
We had a great time at BodyHoliday. It's a pricey hotel but has excellent facilities to compensate. The All Inclusive resort includes lots of extras that you don't normally get such as a complimentary spa treatment each day, watersports (inc shore diving) and an excellent array of activities for both mind and body. We came back fitter, fresher and very […] impressed. Great food, service and a lovely beach. Highly recommended. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"5 star all-inclusive sporty beach resort"
Second stay at this Le Sport hotel and it has got even better. The spa and the sports activities are plentiful and the food superb. Staff are friendly although somewhat forgetful. The key to this resort is the combination of a secluded location in a beautiful sheltered bay and plenty to do.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Beautiful Island, lovely resort."
The hotel is beautifully situated on a well landscaped property. It is kept immaculately. We went there to celebrate an anniversary and could not have been treated better by the staff who with rare exception, went out of their way. There is lot's to do!! Almost too much in fact! If you are active you will love it, if not then you will be fine as well […] as there are pools, the beach, and the spa. The rooms are comfortable. The furniture and some of the linens are a little well worn and we had some problems with condensation coming up through the tiles making for a slippery floor. It is worth paying for the sea view. After a few hiccups on arrival, our room was not available until the next day but they made the move smooth and easy and we really had a delightful stay after that. What was exceptional? The Deli and it's staff. Food there is very tasty and healthy. Tao provided outstanding service and a great sense of humor. Also every buffet at the Clubhouse was delicious. Just a great place to sit as well. Tea time and scones I am missing now. The Bodyguards were great. The only downers I can think of were some of the guests who would commandeer loungers and cabanas for the day while off around the resort. This happened a lot and many of us walked the beach looking for chairs while many remained empty, with only a book or hat, sometimes for hours. Also I would hope the piano player seeks new employment because he really doesn't enjoy his job. A great week! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Holiday of a lifetime"
We had a sea view room with balcony and effective air conditioning that ran quietly enough for night time usage. We relaxed in the afternoon in hammocks and sunbeds on the lawn in a cooling shady location under swaying palm trees. All the sun bed areas are serviced by attentive and friendly beach staff, who bring out iced water buckets and drinks on […] request. With towel stacks everywhere there are no worries about bringing towels down from the room. For a foodie like it me it was heaven. I was able to get protein shakes during the day and there were plenty of vegetarian, dairy and gluten free options at all meals. For me though the resort's Wellness Centre is really what made it special. Set in a temple and located on a hilltop overlooking the complex, this is a lovely place to relax and unwind with a cooling breeze and the sound of bird song in the background. Daily massage and other treatments are included in the package and it is possible to pay extra for other more specialist treatments, such as Ayurvedic massage. Above all else though it was the St Lucian staff who made it the most wonderful experience. Caring, empathetic, friendly and genuine their level of customer service was something I had not encountered anywhere else. All this amounted to the holiday of a lifetime where we made friends, relaxed and felt cared for. Here's to the next time but for now we have many lasting memories.

"Intimate High End Resort with Amazing Spa"
Our family of five recently stayed at The Body Holiday resort. It was our first visit to the property and we were very pleased with everything. The staff is friendly and polite, the property is clean and appealing, the Spa is very impressive, the waterfront is very pleasant, and the food is excellent. Many activities are included in the All Inclusive […] with only a few items that are extra cost if you wish to utilize. As minimum age is 16, it is NOT a property for young childrren, and hence that adds appeal for those of us with older children. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
If you are looking for a relaxing resort, truly all inclusive with a focus on wellness, this is the place. The staff went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable.

"Its a great place"
09/29/14 Steve H Colchester, United Kingdom
To all holiday makers: Firstly I'd like to note the not so good things of my week stay at the Bodyholiday primarily because theyre few in numbers but equally gives a honest view of this hotel. 1. On arrival you're taken straight to your hotel room, this is a great and novel way to start your holiday, but the first grievance was that you're presented with a registration form on which activities you'd like to happen over your stay. I chose golf. But rather unlike their bold statement of you wish it they'll make it happen, it didnt. As it went it didnt worry me as there were plenty other things to go on. 2. I ate at the Cariblue restaurant most times and the food is of a fabulous standard. They have other choices that often come with a supplement. I decided one night to go for the Ribeye. - See picture attached that cost me $40US supplement. The main bone of contention was the size of the steak, less than 1CM width and overdone. I did query this but was told that was it. If any American guests see that, in US you'll get substancially more for your money. This was a disappointment and I guess it would be impossible to cook that steak to any other way than it came. It did taste nice however. 3. The aircon leaked water during one of the nights. These things happen but then the fix didnt fix it and then cause another sleepless night the next night. 4. I like large swimming pools. The pools available are small, one is sufficiently deep but small. 5. There is a gazebo style shop that sells garments. They're ridiculously expensive and I found the staff less than friendly. If you need to shop, go to Castries or Rodney Bay to save you money. Now given all that, you'd think I hated the stay, now the positive bits. The staff couldnt do more for you. Excellent service. Food in the Cariblue, the Pavillion Grille and TAO restaurants are first class. The deli is a great place to do lunch. The breakfast is fabulous way to start the morning. I stayed in a Garden room. Fabulous and exceeded expectations. Spotlessly clean. The watersports seem to be provided by highly competent staff, with very good kit. I never took part in these activities but have done in the past. The bar area is staffed by very willing and capable staff and eager to please. There is a policy for not doing the annoying early morning dash to claim your deck chair that goes on elsewhere. It works and go along with it - you'll always have a place to lie down and soak in the rays. Didnt do any massages/health stuff but heard from others who commended the service. The hotel has a kiosk at the airport that you register your arrival at, and you get a welcome iced water. This is yet another sign of a hotel that cares about its guests. Its approx 80-90 min transfer by car to the hotel. In stark contrast to the $40 steak I've attached $45 lobster pics (had 2). Thoroughly recommend it - amazing lobster and very well presented. Stunning.... Finally I was concerned that the Hotel priced everything in US$ when the EC$ is the island currency. I was pleasantly suprised that when I paid the bill in EC$ the conversion rate met with the expected calculation I got on the internet with current exchange rates. Yes I would go again, maybe stay in a better class room, and hopefully not have any other aircon challenges.
"Heaven on Earth"
Having not exercised for one reason or another (mainly laziness) for a few years I planned to Spa and relax whilst my husband exercised like a demon. Instead I found my keep fit mojo and was tempted by the amazing choice of activities and really fantastic instructors. The Spa treatments are nothing but superb, and every day I was blissed out. The staff here are extraordinarily helpful and committed, we found the service everywhere absolutely first class. The restaurants choice is good, but we found the Windows tasting experience overpriced and slightly disappointing in terms of food quality. Do take a plug in mosquito repellent and lots of spray. Most guests were suffering from ferocious bites, and I was no exception being bitten in my eye socket .... However, we had a truly wonderful time and will recommend this fabulous resort and it's outstanding staff to everyone.
"Excellent all round"
09/25/14 Hudson58 London, United Kingdom
An excellent hotel. There are many hotels around the world who do the variation of same type of holiday but these guys have mastered the execution of that holiday with perfection! OK, so it is expensive but think about all of the included items and the many activities for everyone. Remember - you don't have to do everything on the activities list! Top 5: * loved sundowner cocktails sitting on the beach * tennis facilities were excellent - quality of courts best I have seen in a hot climate * free daily spa treatment - choice for everyone * excellent quality of food - well sourced and meat in particular very tender * great opportunity to try out new classes eg pilates All of these carried out by very friendly staff who help out if it's a new activity for you. Piano Bar on an evening is disappointing - the Piano Bar at Rendezvous (sister hotel) is much better in terms of atmosphere and more welcoming. At Le Sport is was low on atmosphere, cold room (both aircon and cold blue décor), piano out of tune... An idea for the future - why not build a helipad somewhere on the Cap Estate - save guests that last taxi ride from Castries? In the meantime how about a hotel branded mini bus to pick up guests when they get off the helicopter?! That would be much more welcoming :-) An excellent week!
"It did not disappoint - memories were correct"

A holiday with so much to offer. It lives up to ideals, if you exercise, eat well and are pampered you will go home rejuvenated Join the Lycra group with well organised programme, enjoy the complementary massages which are easy to personalise, and enjoy healthy but well presented food, what else could one want . Add sailing and snorkelling and a well kept beach it does not disappoint . The resort caters from young adults to the young at heart and the staff are helpful and friendly. Planning our third trip!
"Body and mind experience - Amazing."
09/24/14 MarcelaLay Atlanta, Georgia
My Husband and I were there for 11 days and we loved it. This is a smaller feel resort but you will never get bored. When we arrived, we weren't sure about the resort but once you start experience it, it is simply amazing. The Great: *You have a spa treatment included for every full day you are there. The spa included options are great not regular fillers. *the extra cost spa services are amazing. You can get an amazing microdermabrasion and facial the day before you live so you look great when you get back. *The food at the restaurant that requires reservations is out of this world delicious. *There are only 3 restaurant options but the main restaurant has a different menu every night, we never repeated a dish. *They have a private beach - it is not too big but it is beautiful and just enough. *They offer many activities like archery and tennis and also aqua sports. YOu will never be bored. *I loved that every night, they will leave hot tea and a cookie in the room before we went to sleep. (Once I came back home, I continue that routine :) ) Considerations: *No internet in the room or around the hotel, only by the reception and the connection is not good. *The resort is on the other side of the island. We book a helicopter both ways. That is the way to go if you don't want a very long drive. This has been one of my favorite vacation/honeymoons! Just perfect.

Excellent holiday again third floor good view. Staff very helpful, food excellent, treatments great. Only strange both smoking areas are in the middle of where people eat, that needs addressing. Need to keep an eye on dress code this year we noticed more people with no shoes and women not covering up.. they shoudl be told to go and get appropriate dress code as the standard will soon drop. Mosquitoes particularly aggresive this year, saying that I only got bitten twice but covered myself in spray. Boots and Kym were great on the snorkel trip. See you again. Gill

We stayed for a week at Body Holiday and wished we could have stayed an extra week. This was my second time to St Lucia, and I had not seen beach like this anywhere on the island before. The beach here is perfect. We loved the food at the deli by the beach and tea time was our favorite time of day. The staff were very friendly and always willing to help with any questions we had. We have such gorgeous pictures and can't wait to go back!
09/24/14 lorrainepreston Southam, United Kingdom
this was our second trip to le sport, we went as a family of 4 and chose sept, although Solo month. it works well for us as it has plenty to offer all of us, we spent 10 days and had two ocean front suites which we love due to its closeness to the sea. the food was excellent, staff were really friendly and helpful, everyone greets you and cannot do enough to help you. The bodyguards are of an excellent standard and the classes were very challenging with a huge range to suit all abilities. I loved the treehouse spinning class, as it was in the fitness studio last time, much better. One little thing that took us by surprise was the suites no longer offer twin beds so if you have brother and sister sharing its something that needs sorted when you get there. housekeeping were great and made up the very large bed into two separate beds which alleviated the problem, although not completely ideal. One thing I have to mention-mosquitos are a problem-the hotel will spray your room for you every night if you ask-take loads of repellent!!! on the whole I would say it would be hard to beat this hotel on all levels, I found the treatments excellent and I have a lot of treatments at home to compare to. I think its great value for money if you take advantage of everything on offer. we also took the helicopter transfer-great fun and lovely overview of the island. So a fab place, great facilities, great staff and great food and I look forward to going back!!
09/24/14 Lashl Shrewsbury, United Kingdom
This hotel offers so many things to all types of holiday makers. The staff are so helpful and friendly, the food fresh and plentiful, the spa treatments every day for one hour at a time are professionally done. This is a touch of paradise. As well as honeymoon couples it is popular with families with older children and also many single ladies say they come back here year after year as they feel relaxed here on their own. Definitely recommend the helicopter transfer it's a bit of a treat but very worth it.
09/22/14 Sophie B Ampthill, United Kingdom
Just home from our holiday at the bodyholiday , le sport, wow wow wow, we had the best time ever, so much to do , treatments everyday which I have to say were superb, I have treatments at home so I could compare the standard, and they were very good indeed, Staff are very helpful from the greeting at the entrance to the time you depart. I have travelled to many places and this standard is amongst the highest. We loved the variety of sports that was on offer everyday a different programme to plan daily, This holiday would suit most people, weather you are sporty or love to be pampered or even if you are not one for sitting in the sun there's 2 pools a great beach, dance classes something for everyone to enjoy. I do agree with a previous comment about dress code, in a resort of this class shorts and t shirts in the evening are not of a standard you want to see. I Would also like to see more Zumba on the beach to get everyone to join in more, We will defo go back again Loved it
