Elephant Coast Guest House
Ranked #3 of 31 St Lucia B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 July 2016

We were made extremely welcome as soon as we arrived by the owners,Albert & Cisca, such a lovely couple. Our room was really nice, well furnished with a nice big bathroom, balcony with garden view and everything you might expect from a Hotel! Yes, we were supplied with beach towels too. Breakfast was superb with a good buffet to start and hot breakfast cooked to order. Town is walkable during the day but NOT recommended at night - HIPPOS. There was more to do in St. Lucia than expected and, in 5 days, we didn't even get to go whale watching. Make sure you take in the Wetlands Park and do the Western & Eastern shores on different days. The crocodile centre is well worth a visit but be there at feeding times! The Hippo / Croc tour is also very, very good and go for the smaller boat carrying 15 passengers as you can get up closer to the animals. As for eating, there's quite a choice in town and we would strongly recommend, Brazza, Ocean Basket & Baracca. Thyme Square is also good for a coffee break. Yes, we loved it and would strongly recommend a stay at the Elephant Coast Guest House.

Room Tip: 1, 3 & 4 have nice balconies overlooking the garden.

Just returned from St Lucia and had a lovely stay. Our hosts Siska and Albert were very welcoming and friendly as well as their staff. The room was large, clean and had a balcony, very comfortable. The breakfasts were good and the situation to the St Lucia was easy walking distance. I would thoroughly recommend a visit.

We arrived around 4pm and were welcomed in to sit on the veranda where it was nice and cool, and as we walk out, we spot a family of 3 red Duiker! And later that night there were two hippo! I think that was the best! The room we had was gorgeous, it also faced the garden area with the animals, and had the pool right in front as well. King size double bed, little sofa, free tea and coffee, ninjas with wine, coke etc. And a free safe for your valuables, though it was quite small, would fit a tablet but not a laptop - we didn't need it, the room was quite secure! Breakfast was nice, I thought it was only continental but the staff offered us bacon and egg! That was a nice touch. We had our own entrance to the building so didn't disturb other people when we stayed out late. Overall, they well deserve the excellent rating

We had a wonderful stay at this guest house. The room was very clean, spacious and comfortable with a view over the gardens. The breakfast was excellent and the manager was most welcoming and friendly. I highly recommend it.
