Given the superlative reviews by many others, we expected the St Lucia Wetlands Guesthouse to be quite outstanding but, whilst it is perectly reasonable, in our opinion, it does not quite match up to its 5 star rating or compare favourably to the quality provided by many of other similar establishments that we have experienced in South Africa. The hosts... More

Have just spent 5 days enjoying wonderful St Lucia (Hippos and all!). This is a wonderful guest house with comfy rooms, a great location and attentive and helpful service. From the coolbox for picnics to the coffee and muffins waiting you before your 5am safari pick up nothing is too much trouble. Had a great time and would definitely return.... More

A great location and the owner was so attentive. They just couldn't do enough to ensure the stay was exceptional. they provided beach towels, snorkels and even washed our car! The breakfast was fabulous and the gardens soothing.

Friendly, welcoming, informative, great location and excellent room. Just what we were looking for and would definitely recommend to others. There is large choice of rooms in St Lucia and they all appear similar on the internet, but the St Lucia Wetlands Guesthouse is a real gem.

Well run establishment with helpful owner and pleasant staff, comfortable accommodation, excellent breakfast. Location ideal for visiting the Park and local attractions, restaurants within walking distance of accommodation. Wetlands Guesthouse is excellent value for money and overall one of the best places that we stayed during our month touring South Africa.

It was a very nice hotel with very nice owners. There was a very cosy feeling on the property. We are a family of four and had a family room, I think it was called, with two bed rooms and a terrass just beside the pool. Both rooms had a toilet and shower. In one of the rooms there was... More

We were guests this past December for 5 days and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Hettie, Derick and Colin are fantastic hosts, the accommodations were perfect (we had the family room plus 2 additional rooms), the breakfasts were delicious - we couldn't have asked for a better stay and their advice on things to see and do extremely helpful. They even... More
