We were rather appalled by the facilities. The chalet was not properly cleaned. The shower had no shower door so whenever we showered it flooded the bathroom, the toilets were horribly stained. Although there was a water restriction and we had to use borehole water, the water was not properly supplied to the chalet. The water was disgusting. It had a horrible iron smell and it wasn't properly filtered. We couldn't flush the toilets as there was poor water flow. Sometimes a horrible stench came out of the toilets and left the neighboring room with a disgusting stench. The geyser is stored in one of the bedroom cupboards and we found that to be dangerous, should the geyser leaked then our valuables would've been destroyed. No soaps etc was made available to us at the start of our stay, there were no soap dishes so we had to leave our shower and soap products on the shower floor which was disgusting. Also there are 4 beds, instead of 6 for a 6 sleeper chalet, there was a sleeper couch but it was hard and run down. No one would be able to sleep on that sleeper couch. We were very grateful for additional mattress that was supplied to us when we complained about the sleeper couch and the number of beds. There was no kids channel to entertain the kids although a few DSTV channels was provided to us. The beds and the pillows are old and seriously need to be replaced. The geyser cannot be stored in the bedroom as well as not in the same cupboard that we are meant to keep our luggage. The staff were very friendly and cooperative and they tried to make our stay a bit pleasant and we are ever so appreciative of that. I must admit that the surroundings are pleasant to the eye and once the chalets are properly upgraded, it will become a beautiful resort for people to stay at. Unfortunately at this stage, the Boma Cabanas at St Lucia is one of the worst resorts to stay at.
