Hurricane Guarantee for Guests

The island of St. Lucia is rarely affected by hurricanes however, hotel operator members of the Saint Lucia Hotel Association and Tourism Association created the hurricane guarantee so you can book with confidence any time of year.

This unique Hurricane Guarantee covers cancellations made prior to arrival and if vacation time is cut short because of a hurricane.

As soon as a hurricane warning is in effect for Saint Lucia guests may cancel their vacation at many of Saint Lucia’s hotels.
