Most enjoyable stay at this lovely guest house. Staff were warm and friendly, professional and accommodated all our needs. Food was good too. Great place to call home for our week-long stay in St Lucia!

Everything great including breakfast. Unfortunately loadshedding 0600 to 0730 electricity ruined our morning of departure as we had no lights and no water. They can’t run their generator at certain hours because if the close proximity of neighbours. Their water should run independently of the electricity supply, but obviously doesn’t. A pity as it tarnished what was a great stay.

I traveled to St. Lucia to celebrate my parents' 50th wedding anniversary. The staff at the place was incredibly friendly and accommodating. Despite arriving 15 minutes past closing time, Jaden kindly arranged a late check-in for us. The rooms were spacious and comfortable, although it's worth noting that one of the two rooms we rented lacked a hot shower. On the culinary front, Sandpiper's dishes were exceptionally delicious, making dining out unnecessary. I tried the oxtail dishes at both Sandpiper and an outside restaurant, and without a doubt, the oxtail served at Sandpiper stood out as the best. All in all, this is an experience worth repeating.

Friendly staff, clean and spacious beds. Unfortunately couldn't switch light off at night which impacted sleep..this was mentioned so sure will have been sorted now for future visitors. Nice, quiet location with lovely well maintained grounds. Note - car is needed as can't walk into the town at night and no taxis available. Great breakfast served each morning with lots of choice.

A very well conceptualized guest house with a stunning view off the porch. Breakfast venue on the same porch also stunning - view & food. Warm & comfortable bedrooms & bed with neat finishes. Would loved to have spent more time there.

Stayed four nights here in Room 2 (the best and most private). All rooms are ground floor and room 2 looked over the lovely gardens and pool and the reserve beyond. Jaden and all the team were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The hotel is out on the last street before the reserve, furthest away from the main strip (a positive for us) so very quiet and still within daylight walking (15 mins) or night time drive (5 mins) of Restaurants.

We had a good stay at this guest house which we had chosen because of the many excellent reviews. We were happy with our stay but not entirely convinced it merits the many 5 star ratings. On the good side, the room is a good size and the bed is comfortable. The garden is beautifully maintained with a lovely outlook. The breakfast is also fine although maybe not the best we had in terms of variety of choices etc., but taking it on the terrace each day was very pleasant. A couple of irritations: firstly, the number of keys you are given on checking in! One for the front door, one for our room, two for the balcony, one for the safe plus a couple of others I am not sure what they were for! The safe in particular was hidden in a cupboard and to operate it I needed my phone’s torch to identify where to put the key. A digital safe would have been much easier. We had a couple of issues that because the reception was not manned could not be sorted out immediately although they were completely dealt with as soon as we could find someone. The generator that comes on when loadshedding hits is very noisy. Still, overall we had a good and enjoyable stay.
