The rooms dated and need a deal of TLC...They were however quite clean apart from the odd squashed mosquito on the walls. The common lounge/tv room area is ruled by the owner's dogs...The room smells heavily of wet dog and the furniture is full of dog hair. We are dog lovers, but still found this a bit disturbing as we... More

Great location and felt like a home away from home. The owner and her family were very welcoming and accommodating making our stay a real pleasure. Rooms are of a good size and layout with access straight onto a small but beautiful garden. Ambient lighting around the garden and trees make for a good place to chill with a beer... More

I stayed at Maputaland Guest House for 4 nights over Easter weekend and really enjoyed my stay. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, especially for first time visitors to St. Lucia. Gisele, the owner, went out of her way to ensure that I had the best possible experience and even booked all of my activities for me. The rooms... More

The room was great. The house was great. The food (breakfast) was great. I felt very much at home. The accommodation is not on the main street. Its about a 8-10 minute walk into town which is no big deal. I would recommend this accommodation.

We had a great time at Maputaland. We stayed there for 2 nights. The guesthouse is very close to the beach and the main road of St. Lucia. The owners are really friendly and helped us out to make sure we had a great time in St. Lucia! The breakfast was also very good. We definitly recommend this guesthouse and... More

Our family of 8 had a very nice experience. Peter and Gisela were marvelous hosts, providing great suggestions on things to do and see. The property, as well as the town of St. Lucia were charming. We would definitely make a return visit.

I stayed here during a busy long weekend in August 2013. I had booked online, but when I arrived there had been a double booking of sorts. St Lucia was very busy that weekend but the hosts found me a place to stay at another guest house for the friday and welcomed me back for the saturday night which was... More

A fantastic place to stay. A great family atmosphere. The hosts, Peter and Gisela were inviting and helpful at providing useful information about the area. They were particularly welcoming to our three children aged 8, 11 & 14 and made them feel at ease. The breakfasts, both cold and cooked were excellent, as was the never ending coffee supply. Relaxing... More

Traveling with a professional tour company, our stop in St. Lucia included 2 nights at Maputaland. Our group of 7 sat comfortably in the large and well furnished dining room. Lots of art and personal collections of the owners all around. Food was excellent and plentiful. Rooms were comfortable, and our group enjoyed visiting with the owners on the large... More

As we looked forward to a holiday in St Lucia where we have never been, we were so disappointed in the accommodation at Maputaland. It barely complies to the standard of a two star Bed and Breakfast. As the comment below, I cannot fault the owners but overall it was NOT a pleasant experience and we left earlier than expected.... More
