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

This place is nestled in a beautiful spot overlooking the estuary. It's possible to see wild animals down by the forest, on the lawn or by the water. Staff were kind and welcoming, but not always on hand if you needed something. The area is peaceful but there were some minor building improvements happening during our stay. Noise from this... More

Sunset Lodge is an incredibly beautiful spot and has so much to offer by way of comfort and beauty. Unfortunately our entire week was completely spolit by construction noises. We would get back every afternoon after an early start and we would be subjected to electric saw, staple guns and hammering noises. While I can appreciate that the site next... More

We do apologies again, for the inconvenience of maintenance work being carried out to our lodge during your recent stay. Due to the high level of maintenance required to keep our lodges in pristine condition, planned maintenance is usually carried out during the quieter off-season period. Maintenance during your 2 day stay was unscheduled work that unfortunately had to be... More

We arrived at our accommodation in St. Lucia mid morning to discover lovely clean cabins bordering onto a pretty garden that backs onto the estuary. Well furnished with all one could need for your stay, the owner was welcoming and very knowledgable about the surrounding area and recommended sights off the beaten track. The lodge is in an ideal spot,... More

We stayed 3 nights at Sunset Lodge. The lodge is located at the end of the main street in St Lucia, so whilst it is close to the shops & restaurants, it is also very quiet. The garden overlooks the lake St Lucia estuary and the view is beautiful. We travelled with our youngest daughter who is 15. Our chalet... More

We felt very lucky to find this lodge where we spent 3 nights in October 2013. The chalet was very clean, comfortable and the owner Shelly was extremely friendly and helpful. She gave us lots of information about what to do in the area and helped us make reservations and plan our excursions. We were traveling as a family with... More

Great place, nice views. Too bad there weren't any hippos on the lodge lawn when we were there. During our stay there were some noises from a construction site next door, but this was no problem for us since the owners mentioned it, at the end of our stay they even gave us a discount because of the noise, good...
