The first stop after flying in from London, Santa Lucia guesthouse epitomised South African hospitality. Beautiful breakfast, amazing house and great location. The rooms are all part of a grand property making you feel at home withOut losing a sense of privacy. The family that run the B&B is really what makes this place the way it is. Originally a... More

We stayed 2 nights at Santa Lucia Guest House and were warmly welcomed by our hostess, Martie. She went out of her way to assist us and recommended the Hippo & Croc boat cruise, but also the drive up to Cape Vidal which was a fantastic beginning to sighting the wild animals in a beautiful game park. The breakfasts were... More

Stayed here in 2008 and was looking forward to returning after too long a gap between visits. We were not disappointed, everything at Santa Lucia is first class! From your first welcome to your last goodbye the treatment is warm, welcoming and genuine - and nothing is too much trouble. If you are visiting the St Lucia area this should... More

We stayed at Santa Lucia for two nights with our 7 year old son. Our room was very clean and comfortable. We were wonderfully taken care of during our stay. We were provided with recommendations and maps for what to do and where to eat, and even given an umbrella, beach chairs and a cooler bag to make our visit... More

The couple who run this guesthouse could not have been more friendly. They looked after us so well and made sure we got the best out of our stay. Simple advice made all the difference - which roads to take in the Isimangaliso Park together with the fact that they gave us a cool box to take a packed lunch... More

We had an excellent stay in St. Lucia at the Santa Lucia B&B. The hosts Francois and Rika are warm, welcoming, incredibly helpful and eager to share the magic of St. Lucia with you. Delicious hearty breakfasts, on the patio in a beautiful garden when the weather allows. We enjoyed the pool and our room, spotless with a lovely homey... More
