“St Lucia Safari Lode”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

Excellent location to explore St lucia and its surrounds. Friendly staff who are ever willing to assist. Excellent value for money. Revamp under way which will make the stay even better(new fridges and beds). Excellent for those looking for both self catering or hotel.

We stayed in one of the studio apartments for 4 people for one night - the water was hot and plentiful (after a week with hit and miss hot water this was bliss!) and the bed comfy. Yes it's a bit basic and maybe could do with a refurb, but it's nice and clean and the breakfast was good.

It's well located - just a few minutes walk from shops and restaurants as well as near the estuary quay.

For the price I have no complaints.

The accommodation was clean, in a great location and well priced. We enjoyed our stay very much and have recommended it to friends and family. The only thing that the room was missing was towels, other than that all good.

Please replace the old (vrot looking) towels in front of bath and shower. It really looks VERY bad.
Put at least a pot scourer or dishcloth to be used in kitchen.
Beds was OK , pillows however is of poor quality. Blankets in cupboard looks like blankets I use for my dogs. Very old and frayed. This gives a bad impression. Please invest in thicker pillows, proper bath mats and new blankets.

Dear Guest, We are really sorry to learn that you were not happy with your stay at the St. Lucia Safari Lodge, we are especially disappointed that the problems were not rectified immediately. We have subsequently replaced the pillows and bath mats, new towels and linen have been ordered and will be delivered to the lodge in due course.

-Service was exceptional, Dennis and his staff were very friendly and hospitable.
- The rooms are very neat, organised and nice BUT fridge is old and rusty, mattress cause back ache and shower door is very close to basin thus not open properly.
