Lodge Afrique
Ranked #4 of 31 St Lucia B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 5, 2011

We stayed at Lodge Afrique for two nights, and we were very sorry to leave. The person in charge, Robyn, could not have been more friendly or helpful, and the rooms were a real delight, showing evidence of real thought and design. Each Thai-style chalet has its own screened off outdoor shower. The tropical garden is also terrific.

Room Tip: They're all good!

What a great place to stay! The individual build lodges are spacious with all extra's you can ask for, like an additional outside shower! The furniture is in African style an has all the comfort you need. Breakfast is very well organised with a choice of pastries, fruit, yoghurt, (french) cheese etc. The best of the stay was the service of Robin and all the staff members. We enjoyed it very much!

Lodge Afrique was a great find with everything we were looking for in a hotel. The rooms wer comfortable, and beautifully decorated. The hotel was fairly new and everything was in terrific condition. Each room was actually a separate hut with stucco walls and a genuine thatched roof supported by a log structure. The huts were in two rows with a little jungle growing between them. We got to our rooms via walkways on a slightly elevated boardwalk. The overall ambiance was terrific and you'd never expect this from the hotel's location in a residential neighborhood of St Lucia.
Lodge Afrique serves a very nice breakfast with hot and cold entrees, but there's no lunch or dinner on the premises, unless one makes a special arrangement iwth the manager. However, it's only a five-minute walk form the hotle to the main drag of St. Lucia and there are plenty of restaurants available in town.
The hotel had good and secure parking and the staff was very helpful.
About all that was missing was good internet service in the rooms, though it was OK in the main building.
We would definitley stay there again.

Room Tip: The rooms only have one bed so if you have a family you'll need more than one.

What a lovely lodge run by a lovely lady Robyn - she certainly goes the extra mile to make your stay comfortable. The accommodation is superb - very tastefully decorated. Close to the main street with many restaurants and a quick walk to the jetty where the hippo and croc boat cruises depart from. Will definitely be back for a longer period. Oh and the breakfasts are great especially the crumpets and scones!

Robyn made us feel welcome from the first - we stayed 3 nights in this gateway to Isimangiliso World Heritage site - this is an intimate lodge - great for couples of all ages. Robyn was also very helpful about things to do.

We stayed in Lodge Afrique for 4 nights and loved the place. Very nice and friendly people providing us everything we needed. Rooms are modern and nicely decorated. The garden is beautiful. The breakfast was the best we had of all B&B/lodges where we stayed during our 4-week holliday. It is located in a quiet street, but within walking distance (<5 min)of the main street.

Awesome experience. We booked for 2 but stayed 4. On arrival we were met with such warmth and what an entrance looking down to the chalets and tropical garden. Rooms were clean and neat and very luxurious. Breakfasts to die for - cream scones, muffins the whole deal. Freshly cooked and delcious. The staff were outstanding, always greeted us and smiling and happy. Robyn the Manager took care of all the guests and nothing was ever a problem for her. I definitely recommend Lodge Afrique - luxury, cleanliness, service ......Paradise. Thank you
