Elephant Lake Hotel
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in St Lucia
Reviewed July 19, 2011

I stayed here one night as part of a tour. The hotel is nothing fancy. My room was basic and clean. Bed was extremely firm. Garden and pool area was quite lush, though. We ventured out and bought fruit, sandwiches, and wine at local markets. We gathered in the garden area and had lunch. The indoor bar/lounge area was comfortable with good service. Hotel is located in a central location and is walking distance to markets and restaurants.

Not a bad place to stay for a day.

Stayed for one night. Rooms are spacious but not well maintained (sticky shower door, curtains don't close completely, etc.). Toiletries are poor quality. There is no WiFi or wired internet at the hotel or nearby. Breakfast buffet was OK (limited choices). Staff is mostly unhelpful.

We stayed one night here. It was not bad, the front staff seemed a bit confused when I asked if there was room service. she had no idea, that was strange. The restaurant manager tricked me, when I walked in to eat. He offered me the buffet only, not giving me the a la cart menu. I was so tired I didn't think to ask. The buffet was 155 rand, and not worth it. Make sure you ask for a menu and hten order the shrimp for 95 rand. I was told they were good.
the rooms were fine, nothing to write home about, small, clean with all the basic things you'll need.

I have stayed at Elephant Lake Hotel several times since 2004 and have felt like I was coming home. The staff is friendly and more than willing to make sure each stay is pleasant. The food is excellent and one is made to feel as if they are a part of the family.

My trips to St. Lucia have been for both business and pleasure.

The next time I visit South Africa St. Lucia is on my list for rest and relaxation
