Having read some of the more less favorable reviews of Lidiko Lodge I find it hard to believe these people stayed at the same place we did. Lidiko Lodge is lovely. Our room (number 3) was spacious, clean and of a very good standard. Fresh towels daily even though we were happy to reuse. The grounds are beautiful, it is... More

3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here for three nights. Room was relatively large and comfortable what we appreciated. Lidiko is located along the "main street" of St. Lucia, so very well suited to visit nearby shops and restaurants, even at night. Apart from that, service was polite and happy to arrange for boat trips etc if you wished. Breakfast was average.

We stayed here for 3 nights. The accommodation was comfortable and clean and the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. There is plenty to do in St Lucia, but you can also relax and do nothing or spend some time in the delightful swimming pool. Would definitely recommend Lidiko Lodge.

Very friendly and helpful staff and management. We stayed a week. The breakfast is perfect. The rooms were great and serviced daily. I would certainly go back and would recommend Lidiko Lodge as a great home base to explore the St Lucia area.

I had a wonderful time staying at Lidiko Lodge over the Easter weekend. The rooms are clean and the staff all very friendly and helpful. Their recommendation of two restaurants in St Lucia was an excellent choice. The lodge accommodated me when I invited my family to have breakfast one morning at the lodge. When again in St Lucia I...

Our stay at Lidiko Lodge was really fantastic. The setting of the lodge is great, the room was very clean & comfortable with your own patio looking out onto the garden. The garden & pool area is also very tranquil. It is a very short walk to any of the restaurants, so the lodge is perfectly situated in St Lucia.... More

My friend and I were delighted to chill at Lidiko after a long journey from the UK. The location was fantastic enabling us to walk to restaurants, the craft market etc. Leona was so efficient and friendly as were all the staff. The hippo and croc tour with Kian was memorable.

We enjoyed our stay in a wonderful cottage situated on the other side of the street, adjacent to a park where you could see hippos during nighttime. Unfortunately, we did not see any hippos, but enjoyed the spacious cottage, friendly personnel, the pool and breakfast.
