What a pleasant surprise! We stayed in a self catering unit which has everything you need. St Lucia is currently having a water crisis which could make things difficult but this little gem has a borehole. Barring it's fantastic location- walking distance of all restaurants and the centre of town they also offer free Wi-Fi. Not to mention the great... More

Stayed there for two nights and had a great stay! From the receptionist to the cleaners and even to the security guard! Everyone was so friendly, helpful and outgoing, making sure we had the best two nights. Great value for money.

We stayed one night at St Lucia Safari Lodge in one of the self cater rooms. We were very disappointed in the state of the room and it needed cleaning and some maintenance badly. It certainly did not look like the photos on the website when we booked on line. Mould was everywhere. In cupboards, the roof, the bathroom. Kitchen... More

If one accepts a little 'jaded and tired' as a reason for being a conservatively priced establishment then you will be satisfied with what is on offer at st. Lucia Safari Lodge. Personally I think that ill fitting doors and a broken shower knob are just poor maintenance. The rooms were nice some years ago for sure but are showing... More

Only two avaliable plug sockets in a room for four people though and the shower was on a slant making it very slippy and no handle to hold on to,also no where to keep gels. One member of staff was usless and half asleep all the time! Almost quite... More

We needed a quiet relaxing stay as we are in the hospitality industry and just needed to get away. We stayed in the smaller Thatch bungalow and lets just say it was really awesome to see a place as well kept as this. Kitted with a awesome huge bathroom and comfortable bed and bedding.

Rooms well maintained and very comfortable St Lucia Safari Lodge is definitely on our list for a return, on the main road, close to shops and restaurants.
