Very poor, what was on the advert did not meet the expectations, the general manager made mention that the lodge is 3 star after we experienced load shedding the Saturday 14/02/2015, room had ants and cupboards had a stench that seems to me was not clean.

Very unclean. One of the rooms was full of bugs of different kinds. At first the owner was understanding but later refused to pay back any money.

Lovely setting and friendly staff, but definitely not four-star. There were a few maintenance problems such as only 2 TV channels working, fridge needed regassing and kettle switch not working. All things which could be checked and rectified quite easily. Supposed to be well equipped for self-catering, but we had to ask for a few items as cutlery items very...

Dated Apartments. Felt like they had not revamped the venue from when they were first built. TV was a CRT! Poor Wifi Coverage. Air Con in the main bedroom did not work on first night. Certainly not a 4 Star having stayed in previous and further 4 Star Accom in South Africa. Close the beaches, Cape Vidal and town. Friendly...

We have just spent 7 nights at the Seasands lodge in St Lucia. The positives are the location and St Lucia itself - both very good . The hotel is 3 roads back from the main street which makes it a very peaceful location to relax and enjoy the area . The negatives have already been expressed on this site...

I spent Christmas 2014 at Seasands lodge in St Lucia. The lodge is fairly central to St Lucia and has easy access to the wetlands area. It is a 5 minute drive or 10 minute walk to the nearest beach. We booked 2 adjoining units for our family of 5 and had a really pleasant week. The lodge is set...
