There are not a ton of great lodging options in St. Lucia. This has to be the best or one of the best places to stay in town. The atmosphere is very pleasant and the service is terrific. The owner Francois and the manager Marti were really helpful. Breakfast was one of the best we had in South Africa... That...

Spending one night only at the Santa Lucia Guesthouse and we are happy with our choice of accommodation. Lovely quiet accommodation, wonderful gardens/surroundings, very nice breakfast and wonderful hospitality. The owners are always around to make sure that the guests are happy. We will definitely come back!

We stayed for three nights and the only complaint we have was the weather! Great Place to stay and an outstanding service from the owners and their personal. We will never forget the heart shaped waffles we got as a "starter" of the breakfast.

I choose this B&B as it had been rated very high. And upon arrival I totally agree with that verdict. The complete story is, that I arrived one day too early- and the Guesthouse was fully booked. No trouble was spared to get me an accomodation - and a pretty one as well. Self catering, though. Just to demonstrate the...

We spent 2 nights at this guesthouse and had a nice time in St. Lucia. St. Lucia has water restrictions so all properties have limited water supply, but this wasn't a real problem. Breakfast was very good. Room was spacious and comfortable, but we didn't spend much time there. The bathroom space is tight. Great recommendations on sightseeing to Cape...
