The pool was not clean upon arrival, and also when looking for my earing below the bed it was not cleaned. The kettle in the kitchen also needs cleaning inside of it. The location of property is perfect and the ambiance. A beautiful place overall.

Please sustain the super hospitality you provide to all your guests. I enjoyed my stay at Monzi the air was natural welcoming and more than friendly to solo and family visitors. Though I came for business but next time I will come with my family.

A beautiful quiet little safe resort with a couple of houses not far from St Lucia. It is very complete as in it has a swimming pool, the kitchen is more than well equipped and the view of the garden is wonderful. As the house is build on poles you can overlook a lot of your environment. When it’s hot there is always the nice and clean pool in which you can cool off and after that sit next to it with your drinks! I have been here before and will definitely return again, and again!

This was one of the most beautiful stays. Animals on the place as well as swan pond. Houses are far from each other. Very quite place. House is cleaned daily and mats and towels changed daily. House is always smelling so fresh. Private pool is the best. Has a lychee farm as well so best time is Dec to experience this and you can eat some from the tree.

I loved the stay here, we did a few safari tours while staying here and were able to be picked up at the front gate. The condo was clean and something I have never experienced before. On the property monkeys and wildebeasts roam free (not dangerous) which really added to the great overall experience.

The houses are great, well spaced, well lit, well ventilated, and the beds are comfortable. The houses are well spaced so you don’t have a neighbor next to you, they are about 50meters apart roughly. Me and my partner were really impressed with this facility.

Bring your own food then you will not leave the house, everything you need for a getaway is there. Our fault was not buying enough food so we have to get to St Lucia for some extra food which is a distance. The place got everything you need and very clean.
