The property is not as advertised on the website, yes the pictures are correct, but the units are at the back with no view at all. That being said, service was very good, breakfast too and we enjoyed our stay. For what one get the accommodation is over priced.

Dear Guest, Thank you for the review. If you read the descriptions clearly, you will see that the establishment is exactly as advertised. As you say, the photos are correct. I am sorry to see that you feel we are overpriced, I am not quite sure what you expected to pay for what you received. Regards Amanda

The Lodge is wonderful with lots of wood and a homey feel. The rooms are large and comfortable with very nice decks where you can sit and listen to the birds. They have 3 swimming pools but there are so many things to do we didn't use them. Be sure and take the crocodile and hippo boat tour organized through the lodge and also drive through the park nearby and you will see lots of animals. We also went to Hluhluwe/Imfolozi National Park and it takes a full day to see all the animals. Stay here and you can do it all. The breakfast was fantastic as well.

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights 14 - 17 June. We managed to book a package deal that included excursions to Hlulhuwe, Cape Vidal and a boat trip on the lake. Ask for it, it is an excellent package! The unit was clean, spacious and well equipped. A family of 4 - 5 can easily stay in a unit. The town is so small, and just around the corner one will find about 9 - 10 restaurants, and at least 3 biggish outlets for groceries etc. One evening I did a braai and early the next morning the private braai area in front of our unit (no. 6) was cleaned. The breakfast area is just amazing with the most beautiful view over the estuaries and the ocean. There was a bit of miss-communication between myself and the lodge regarding one activity I booked. The owner immediately took ownership and provided the most amazing customer service one can ask for. We will be back before the end of the year! Highly recommendable!

As a first time visitor to St Lucia we were very impressed with the Ndiza. We found the accommodation to be very comfortable; clean and met all our requirements. The pool area is great with lovely relaxing loungers. The view from the deck of the lodge is beautiful. We look forward to going back.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ndiza Lodge. We stayed in the Lodge itself on a half board basis - Unit 4. The unit very spacious, clean, well equipped and maintained with a large walk in shower. The Air conditioner very quiet and worked well. Lovely sitting out area right in front of the room with lovely views of the wetlands. Breakfast and evening meal both delicious and the owners and everyone working at the lodge always so very friendly and helpful. The breakfast area overlooks the wetlands and a truly magnificent view of the Indian Ocean. No negatives at all from our stay, just positives.
