We landed in ST Lucia and as we exited the plane the heat hit us, everyone had dressed in jeans so we were very glad to get though airport security collect our bags and get to the hotel, which was 5mins for the airport. We arrived at the hotel a little hot and meet some lovely people on the bus who were staying the same hotel as us, and to my DF and DS’s happiness the family are West Ham supporters. On arrival to the hotel we checked in, was offered a glass of champagne, (which I declined being a non drinker) we were given a room on the fourth floor was had the most amazing view. Within a few min’s our bags were delivered to our room and I get started on unpacking, once unpacked and changed into lighter clothing we went for a walk, the hotel was really nice, the kids seemed really pleased with the hotel pool and water park so that was good, we spent a little time laying in the hammocks before going in for dinner, once we had eaten we headed back to our room, showered and relaxed in our room. Here is the view from our room. This is the Maria islands which is home to a rare bird and lizard and can only be find on this island. This is one of the 4 pools and the one the kids spent all they time. The boys and Wayne chilling on a hammock. Here is our very first sunset of the holiday, we could see the sunrise over the beach and the sunset at the back of our hotel.
