Expected to stay in St Lucia for 1 night and found this wonderful place and stayed 3 nights. Friendly and attentive owners & staff who bent over backwards to help us enjoy the area and visit the best parks and beaches. Great breakfasts. The Lodge is on many levels with decking in between and is very relaxing. Rooms are great with large shower rooms with rain showers. Good value for money. St Lucia makes an excellent base for the area - there are a fair few good bars and restaurants in the town itself and its an easy drive into the game parks. The local beaches and walks are great & the sunset boat tour of the estuary to get up close to the hippos is well worth it. A great place, would definitely stay again.
