My experience was great. My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights. The hotel is lovely. Very very clean , neat , well kept , the breakfast tasty. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The area is very safe. Walking distance to restaurants. Also close to all activities. The Hotel ground and pool is well kept , clean and always neat. I loved the Hotel. The only small problem is that there are no bar fridges in the rooms which makes it very difficult if you staying more than 2 nights. There is also great value for money when staying at the hotel.

First visit to St Lucia. Arrived before the check in time, was told to return after 2, this meant standing in a queue when we returned. Only one person at reception meant a slow check-in. The rooms suited our purpose with linked family rooms between the kids and Us. The Wi-Fi didn’t work in the Rooms, much to the kids disappointment and frustration. A little more attention by management would make this hotel a brilliant stay. TV signal wasn’t great, with limited channels. Kids Remote was faulty. Kids shower only had a trickle of water. No drinking water in the room. It was HOT, requesting ICE was an issue because it wasn’t always available. Perhaps the Lockdown had an impact on the service. Breakfast was definitely delicious and portions were good. Dinner was also great, but the menu is a bit limited for choice. Pool was clean and a great relief. It would be nice to have an information directory in the room. Visits from the Hippos was really cool. But the monkeys become a pest! (Raiding the rooms)

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of our tour of KZN. The rooms are fairly basic, and the water and electricity both went off on several occasions. The food was plentiful and tasty but it was a fairly limited menu. Drinks were OK but they didnt stock gin or tonic (we asked and they got it in for the third night) and all of the drinks could have been better chilled. It is in the centre of town near to everything and two hippos did indeed walk through the grounds on the first night.

The welcome at the hotel starts with a disclaimer at both reception and the bar showing the hotel cannot be held responsible for anything that happens to you or your property whilst you stay - whatever the cause! Room has a safe - but no key. Door locks to room are very basic. Our room itself okay and clean but hot water runs out if the hotel is busy and guests are getting ready for an evening meal. The bar had no gin or vodka on our arrival which was not addressed until a complaint was lodged with a duty manager. The staff member behind the bar had a torn, grubby looking uniform and was unable to find a bottle opener for a bottle of beer. The reception staff and waiting staff were smart and helpful. There was a choice of meals at both breakfast and evening and were of a good quality but options were often not available due to running out of ingredients and also the same menu for 2 out of the 3 nights we stayed. This stay was booked as part of a tour otherwise previous poor reviews would have been heeded.
