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

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

Rika & Francois have worked very hard to think of everything you might need for a comfortable stay in this custom built home. When their three boys left home, they converted it to a guest house. The decor & fixtures may be old fashioned for some, but we thought it was part of the charm of the place. Try to... More

I can't imagine a nicer or better place to stay. The guest house, rooms, garden, and pool were lovely, and much thought had been given to providing everything a guest might need to make his/her stay enjoyable. The owners and staff were incredibly friendly, gracious, and helpful to all their guests but went the extra mile to help me --an... More
