“THE best place to stay in St Lucia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

We stayed at St Lucia Wetlands gueshouse and can't recommend it highly enough. The place is spotless and the whole family could not do enough for us during our stay. Rooms are nice although our particular bathroom was pretty small and breakfasts were also really good. Also, really good value for money

Very helpful and obliging staff; clean and well-furnished bedroom with nice large bathroom. Breakfast was adequate. Pool was very dated and not too user-friendly . Overall a pleasant stay and good value.

We stayed in St. Lucia for 2 days with two adults and two kids. The Wetlands Guesthouse was a good B&B, not very modern, but very clean and suitable.
Rooms could get an upgrade, not all windows could get closed properly.
One point that can be improved is the breakfast. Not enough tables on the terrace and somehow limited when it comes to variety and amounts.
But all in all positive. A nice B&B with a marvellous little garden.

Derick, Hettie and Colin really look after their guests well - they are excellent hosts. The facilities in the guesthouse are first class with comfortable beds, air-con and good bathrooms. The breakfasts are also very good with lots of choice. The only small concern that we had related to the swimming pool which does not have any steps into or out of and is therefore awkward for older guests to use easily.

Very nice place in st Lucia, the owners have been so kind to us, helping as much as they could. Very old english style with nice furnitures. My only regrets were not to have a terrace or balcony for the room and the swimming pool is not very easy and accessible...

What a fantastic guesthouse to stay in. The owners are professional and they go the extra mile to do anything to make your stay a pleasant and enjoyable one. When you leave Wetlands Guesthouse you leave as part of a new family, part of the Holman family. There is no better place to stay in St Lucia.
