We had a great time at Marlin Lodge, a relaxing and tranquil place. St Lucia is generally a small and very safe place, so we felt extremely comfortable here. Sonet and Johan were fantastic hosts and catered to all our needs. They were able to arrange all kinds of activities. Our room was bright and modern and breakfast was extensive.... More

Lovely spot, clean rooms, Fabulous pool area. Only some rooms have aircon, and pillows are horrid - so slept badly - also no fridges in rooms? Nonetheless the Hosts are great, excellent breakfasts and good all round value - will be back once above it sorted out. Thanks.

In October, we booked one night at Marlin Lodge as a stopover spot on our way back to Mozambique. We arrived late and my... More

Dear Tim It is so sad that you had to become another statistic in South Africa. We love our little town and an incident like this is few and far between, hence the fact that we do not have electric fences.

We stayed at Marlin Lodge as a party of eight people and were all treated to a really warm welcome. The pool was beautiful and we had good advice from Sonet and Johan about taking a late afternoon drive up towards Cape Vidal; plus they had fixed a boat tour for us the following morning, which was excellent - pick...

The Marlin Lodge is a lovely Guesthouse with very nice rooms. The breakfast was the best one of our whole trip. The Pool is great and the owner very helpful. We enjoyed our three nights in there and There is really nothing to say against it. We can absolutely recommend this guesthouse.

If you're looking for a relaxing getaway, Marlin Lodge is the place. Very knowledgable and welcoming owners, with a great breakfast. When we return to St Lucia, it will be to Marlin Lodge! Thank you Sonet for your hospitality and for recommending Cape Vidal, a day we'll never forget.
