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

log cabins in need of tlc. Not at all soundproof so tip: don't go with anyone unless you know them really well....very basic but would recommend having a look around at newer resorts in the town. Good place for fishermen!

Dear visitor, Thank you for the review, however I am not sure your review is fair! Sunset Lodge is fully accredited and ‘highly recommended’ by the AA rating agency. I am graded by the star grading as "Self-catering - EXCLUSIVE" New beds and complete bathroom renovations have recently been carried out in the log cabins that you stayed in. It... More

Compact but functional log cabins in a lovely setting with really friendly and accommodating owners. Great location close to town so easy walking distance to bars and restaurants but quiet and relaxing too. Just be careful of the hippos!

Sunset Lodge's owners could not do more with their property to maximize your relaxation and enjoyment - it is on the edge of a hippo filled estuary, in deep rural tropical conditions. The options through the range of chalets gives one choice of location and package. All works well and easily. On our first evening very inconsiderate and noisy guests... More

We loved Saint Lucia and a big part of that was the sunset lodge. We were given great recommendations on what to do and where to eat. Then after a big day around a great town we found it a very comfortable and relaxing place to stay. Thanks, we hope to be back.

Sunset Lodge is in a beautiful location overlooking the St Lucia estuary and is within easy walking distance to the town where there are some good restaurants and other facilities. Shelly was our host and is both knowledgeable and passionate about the town and activities in the area. She was able to book us most activities, which included whale watching,... More
