Lidiko Lodge is right in the middle of the center. You can walk to the restaurants, bars,... They are all situated in the same street. It's a very quiet place with a nice swimming pool, very cosy rooms and an excellent breakfast buffet. All the staff is very friendly and they help you to organize some activities. You surely must...

This lodge has beautiful grounds, sitting areas and clean rooms. The staff is very friendly, personable and efficient. Goodness, Priscilla and Fanilla were very welcoming and deserve a mention. The breakfast buffet is excellent. The lodge is walking distance to great restaurants. Highly recommend this lodge.

Sint Lucia is an amazing place to spend a holiday with the wild life. Likodo lodge is a very nice place to stay with very big hospitality. We liked that it was close to the centre but not in the middle of the town. If you are here, you get excellent help from the staff while planning your trips. A... More

We stayed for 2 nights and really enjoyed the whole time at Lidiko. The staff does a good job by recommending you trips and activities. The Lodge is very well situated for taking drives into the iSimangaliso Park, hiking and doing boat trips to observe hippos/crocodiles/birds. We had good breakfast and if you have time it's also nice to just... More

The team is very nice and pleasant, the rooms are big with all that is needed for a rest after a trip in the park or in the estuary. The breakfast is good with all required food for a big and tasty breakfast. Secured parking & nice outside lounge place for enjoying the sound of wind at night.

We (family of 5) stayed 4 nights in Lidiko lodge. The hotel was very nice; staff was very friendly, rooms were nice (good beds) with a big bathroom, breakfast good. The whole place was very nicely decorated. Wifi was only available in the lodge itself not in the rooms. Overall a very good hotel.

St Lucia is a strange little place which I suppose is part of its charm and this hotel fits this mood entirely. Set around a pleasant garden with a pool in the middle I suspect the whole vibe is different in the summer months. However in winter, when we visited, it feels a little bit too dark and shady. We...

The location on main street is good a short walk to the shop's and restaurants. An excellent spot to do day trips too Isimangaliso wetlands park and hluhluwe game... More
