We enjoyed our stay at Sunset Lodge. They paid attention to small details to ensure our comfort, such as providing enough toilet paper and a daily cleaning service. Beautifull sunsets! Would recommend it. Thank you.

The staff were extremely helpful and efficient. The chalet was a good size and very clean and well maintained. The water pressure in the shower was poor though. The outdoor facilities were great with a shared pool, good amount of parking and outdoor seating areas. Easy walk into town. I suppose I didn't rate it higher because it lacked some... More

Beautiful setting with stunning vies of sunsets over the river and lots of animal life, from very welcoming cats and dog, to monkeys, birds, etc. This made the stay particularly pleasant. The accommodation is clean, well set up and has all necessities for self catering. Very close to all the restaurants, but... More

We really enjoyed our stay. Great location, great service. We even saw two Hippos one night in font of our unit. The units are well equipped for self catering and very clean. It is in a quiet area of town but close enough to all the shops and restaurants. We will be back.

Great 3-nights stay in a nice wooden chalet with beautiful terrace and garden view...Thanks to the night watchman we have seen a hippo family peacefully grazing in the garden on our last evening...! And yes we know those are dangerous animals but it was absolutely amazing;-) Thanks also to Shelley for finding the right adaptor for our devices... night watchman

Sunset Lodge overlooks the beautiful St Lucia Estuary and is situated up a quiet street a short walk from the main town centre. We booked in with owners Richard and Shelly who really could not do more to make our stay more pleasant. The lodges are timber cabins that are very neat, clean and comfortable. During our stay, we were... More

I have no problem staying in accommodations that are not luxury. However when I am charged higher rates, I expect certain guarantees for my lodging. First upon booking, I received confirmation of deposit however I asked for more information via email and was never answered. Upon arrival, the employee in charge of checking us in was less than helpful with... More
