“Will be back”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

My bf took me to st Lucia for my birthday last week, and we stayed at the Safari Lodge.
I arrived before him, and was greeted by a very friendly receptionist. She showed me to our room and when she heard it was my bday she actually started singing to me which was lovely. The room was very spacious and very clean. The bed was extremely comfortable and it really is fully stocked for the self catering visitors. My only issue was the shower head had problems and had to be on full blast in order to get hot, and the parking spaces are way 2 small. The guest in Chalet 2 had such a big car that I had to park my car in front of the reception because I could not fit past.
I would say the prices are a little steep, especially if its just for the night and you don't need self catering but it is a lovely place and will definitely choose to stay here on our next trip.

Thanks for the hospitality. The welcome I received was excellent. My trip was delayed for hours the Lady (Nozipho) at the reception she called me to see whether we were safe / lost she gave us the direction and tried to wait for us but she was going to miss her transport than she called her manager to come so that he can show us our room. He wake up and came to the lodge and wait for us what a humble person ,he assisted us on offloading the bags from the car to the room. Cleaning lady excellent ,I forgot the cellphone on the outside table when we were leaving for crocodile park she took it to the duty manager. Thanks again

I would never visit here again and would strongly warn others not to either.the rooms were in poor condition and need serious maintenance. Nosipho and her her manager have no idea about good service and hospitality. We had to ask for our rooms to be changed because of the thick dust in the rooms and toilets that did not work properly.these guys dont even provide extra towels for the pool and when we were yelled at in presence of other guests for towels that had gone missing, something we had no idea about.The Manageress of the place, and Nosipho give this place a very bad image.

The lodge is very well located. Unit was spacious, well equipped, spotlessly clean but dark. The staff were very friendly and helpful. A few sun umbrellas and comfortable seating by the pool would make up for lack of garden. Great value for money.

The overall visit was very nice, But a few problems come to mind.
The web site stated a 6 sleeper but on arrival found that in fact it was 3 double rooms in one building unfortunately the family we traveled with the children have never slept in rooms away from their parents and so ended up sleeping in the lounge of our unit..The outside of this unit had been repaired and not painted which to me is not a 3 star rating. The air conditioner in bedroom made such a noise that we could not sleep with it on an was very hot.

Service and amenities were excellent.Location superb. Enjoyed the daily serviced rooms including Sundays and the kids thoroughly enjoyed the large pool. Parking and driveway slightly small and at times confusing to patrons.
