We have just returned from a 6 night stay at Marlin Lodge and had a fantastic time. The hosts, Johan and Sonet were amazing and gave excellent advise on things to do in the area, felt like a "home away from home". The room was clean and adequately equipped, the breakfasts excellent. We will be back!

We had a great time, very warm environment, felt at home. Great facilities too, the lodge was being renovated and upgraded too for more space and parking too.
I would recommend them should you need accomodation in St Lucia.Thank you!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The service was excellent and even though it is a bed and breakfast, Sonett allowed us to use the kitchen anytime to prepare food for our daughter. The onlything we had an issue with was the beds, as we were 3, our 4 year old and us, and there were 3 single beds in our room. As a couple and child, we expected a doible bed for us and a single bed for our daughter. Other than that we felt at home.

This is prob the best Lodge we have stayed in during our trip in SA. It got a relax atmosphere and cool swimmingpool. Sonet (the owner) makes a wonderfull breakfast every morning and is friendly and helpfull. The price is also good (for this area). We would go back!
