3 1/2 to 4 Stars
Just spent a few days at the Perna Perna “Resort” in St. Lucia. We used RCI points to book unit 14 and were there the first week in June 2015.
Overall I would give the resort three and a half stars. My wife thinks it should be four. Following is the assessment.
The Staff: Five stars. Can’t say enough about the staff. One guy looked a bit scary but the rest were friendly and accommodating from the manager at reception right the way through. Great folks!
Ambiance: Four stars. Clean, neat, well maintained. Very welcoming. They even had a small parrot greeting guests at the reception. I give it four stars because it was a bit dated. Comfortable, but old in style and age.
General: Three and a half stars. On paper the recreational facilities sounded great: pool, play ground, braai’s/barbecues, DStv, laundry, bicycles, etc.
But everything was muted. It was tight or limited. There were only four bikes: two for adults and two for children.
You got the sense they added features to create a better image, probably at the urging of RCI. [Read more…]
