The Lidiko lodge understands what holidays and time off are all about. They help you with what to do and have great tips for things to do around. The staff is very friendly and fluent in English and Afrikaans which is handy for Dutch travelers as well

We arrived late due to a long drive and were made very welcome. The room was comfortable and lead on to the pool, only managed one swim due to the cool weather. The staff were very friendly, my only criticism was that there was no choice of eggs at breakfast.

The stay was nice but too expensive compared to all the other accommodation on our trip. As an example we paid R2000 for a family room for one evening. i paid R700 for a family room in a hotel in Ulundi and R1300 for a family suite in Umhlanga over the same period.

Lidiko Lodge is centered situated in Santa Lucia. In few minute walking there are the main shops, restaurants, activities and info centers. The house has a welcoming veranda, reception + lounge area and on its back there is a court + pool where the rooms are. The room is not small, but the forniture is poor and a bit oldish... More

Every other year, our delegation from a private school in USA, stay at Lidiko Lodge in St. Lucia. We are always so excited to get there and have never been disappointed with the services, accommodations, friendliness of the staff, and the overall spirit of Lidiko. We can't wait to return in 2016!

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

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.
