Lodge Afrique
Ranked #4 of 31 St Lucia B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 1, 2014

We stayed 3 nights, during our stay in St. Lucia. Location is good, with a 5 min. walking distance to main street where the shops and restaurants are. Rooms are very nice; spacious, large bed, wifi and tv working well, good working shower. Some insects sometimes though. Breakfast was very nice. Plenty of choice; eggs, small pancakes, muffins, toast, cereal, yoghurt, fresh fruit, etc.
Services was great; whale tour has been arranged by manager (however eventually cancelled due to sandbanks unfortunately), snorkling gear and lunch provided when visiting Cape Vidal. Surely stay here again when in St. Lucia again. Price somewhat above average, but definitely good value for money.

It was very nice having you here for three days and I am glad you enjoyed our good breakfasts.
We do sometimes have small spiders and bugs entering the rooms, this is Africa, but we do spray every day after cleaning to make sure the bugs do not bother our guests.

This little lodge in Saint Lucia surpassed our expectations. The lodge is beautifully located in a quaint part of town and it is a wonderful place to spend a few days and visit the park of iSimangaliso. The staff was wonderful but the best asset of this lodge are Tessa and Else. These ladies are the heart and soul of the place and they run it as if it was their own. Tessa, whom we had the pleasure to spend more time, made our stay even more memorable. Definitely a place we would visit again if we decide to go back to South Africa

Room Tip: Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Beautiful in suite bathrooms.

Locally owned by a couple who definitely understand the importance of providing an authentic feel while also providing luxury quality & comfort at an affordable price. The poolside breakfast was also excellent in selection and taste. I will let my photographs help the viewers to visualize the style and comfort of the lodging. Very highly recommended while staying in St Lucia.

The pictures looked great but the lodge itself is just amazing. I find this to be the most amazing lodge we visited in our 24 days in South-Africa. The staff was also very helpful and arranged the activities and even a bottle of champagne for our honeymoon.

I agree with you, this really is a little paradise. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your honeymoon in South Africa. On your twenty fifth anniversary you must return for another bottle of champagne.
Once more, have a wonderful life together and remember love is giving and not expecting anything in return, except love.

This was defiantly one of my best stays so far. From our arrival, greeted by Cindy and showed to our room, Which was fantastic clean and nicely decorated. Very nice setting and well managed. Received excellent service from Tessa who assisted with booking our boat trip. Breakfast was also great we stayed two nights which seemed far to short will be back and will recommend this to anyone wanting a beautiful, peaceful place to stay in St Lucia. Loved it.

Room Tip: All rooms set in a beautiful garden setting.

Great property. Wonderful lush gardens, large lounge with bar. The room and bathroom were large and well furnished. The lovely Tessa and the other ladies were very helpful with all sightseeing tips (you must go to the pub around dusk - we got to see a baby hippo there 2 nights in a row). Would highly recommend and if we are ever back in St Lucia we will be staying here again.

Thank you for the review, it was a pleasure having you here and looking forward to seeing you again, The hippos are still around and some of our guests from Germany saw a leopard walking across the road near to the pub where you saw the baby hippo. What a surprise they had!!
