We were warmly received by Rika who is such a kind person. We stayed in the very beautiful and spacious family suite. The beds are very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and Francois was giving us muffins to eat during our trip on the river. He also gave us a copy of the map to visit the Isimangaliso Wetland Reserve and... More

very hospitable guest house, a little bit more old fashioned than other accommodation as the furniture was large and dark, well made, but made the room feel darker. Having said this, it was all very clean, good small pool for our daughter and a great breakfast with heart shaped pancakes and hot chocolate which went down well. Lots of useful... More

Visiting this establishment made our first trip to St Lucia a memorable one. Rieke was a super efficient and friendly host. Francois was an incredibly knowledgeable individual who gave us soulfood with his words everyday. Would recommend this establishment to all who visit this beautiful area. They really go the extra mile... everything you need. Helpful, patient and worldly!

Room 4 is a large spacious room on the backside of the main building. Quiet, just some small birds, with a private patio. The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful. They give advice for daytrips and if you want make the reservations for you. If you need something you just ask for it and it will be arranged.... More

The hotel has amazing tropical garden, a lot of plants, one can imagine being somewhere in jungles. The hosts are very hospitable. Room was clean and the breakfast was good indeed. The only thing, internet connection in the evening had some issues.

On our holiday to the St Lucia area we ran into a little snafu with our hotel reservation and stumbled onto this lovely guesthouse. Rikka and Martie were the most wonderful hosts and found us a room right away. They were such a help to us with all our activities in St Lucia and iSimingaliso. They saved our trip from... More

Great room: very clean and well stocked, awsum atmosphere: very homey and inviting, very affordable: for the price I paid I was amazed, and you are always greeted with a smile: the owners are the sweetest couple.

Santa Lucia Guesthouse is a modified large home, with 6 bedrooms with private baths, just large enough for our group of 12.Some rooms were bigger than others. The owners, Rika and Francoise are two of the most lovely hosts we have ever met. Francoise is 90 years old, Rika is a young 70+. Upon arrival one of our group had... More
