Room was comfortable and clean. Disturbed sleep though as our room backed onto the dining area and the outside light being on all night, and a glass back door made the room very light. Reception was very good.

We have stayed previously at this lodge, it is a convenient location to all amenities and the staff are very pleasant. On arrival we were greeted and taken to our lodge. I had noticed there was no braai stand allocated for our unit (I did see other units with braai stands) and Joey Zietsman informed me that no guests are... More

Dear Jolene It is with regret that I read your comments regarding the braai facilities at our Lodge, we do not allow open fires/braais on the porch itself, due to our insurance policies. But do encourage all our guests to enjoy the braais available, to be used just off to the side of the porch – on request we always... More

Rooms and bathrooms are dirty. The shower curtain in the main bedroom definitely needs to be replaced by a glass door. Cupboards are old and smelly. Not much room to move in at the kitchen. Good location.

Overpriced for what it was. Room in need of refurbishment. Breakfast was very limited and the bacon was inedible. Pool looked nice but we were visiting in winter. The room was freezing and the wind up heater given to us did nothing to hear the room. This would've been great if the room had been cheap.

Small room complete with a noisy humming fridge. "Breakfast" lacked fruit or any healthy options. The best thing about this place was the shower. It was so powerful (though probably not safe for kids or the elderly). It was disappointing though as you'll want to take the shower off the wall and use it to clean the dirty room. But... More

Enjoyed our stay. St. Lucia is a wonderful place and the staff at the lodge were friendly and helpful. The rooms were not fancy and could use some updating but were adequate. Over all we were quite happy

My husband and I spent our 1 year wedding anniversary at St Lucia Safari Lodge and enjoyed our stay tremendously. The staff were friendly and helpful and the place itself was beautiful. The only downside was that the pool was not cleaned, but it was the middle of winter so no harm done. Thank you for a lovely experience.

the hostess that checked us in was very uptight, was not friendly at all. She doesn't even smile at us as guests.

Your african lady was extremely friendly and helpful. The facilities were not so great, blinds in bathroom was broken - so privacy was limited and rather uncomfortable. Found a few things not in working order. Stove very slow and old. Stayed for 5 days - carpets got quite dirty and there was no equipment to clean up.

Overall, a lovely room, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The only issues worth mentioning is that no bath or hand towels were provided, the stove doesnt work propery (grill is broken) and there are not many utensils to cook with.
