WATCH OUT! DONT PLUG IN FANCY ELECTRONICS

2.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 14 Apr 2023
Stayed in St Lucia for a few nights while exploring the area. Upon arrival it all seemed very clean, the staff was nice, but the Wifi was very slow. However, we were met with an unpleasant surprise when we plugged in our laptop to charge. After just 5 minutes it stopped charging and the screen did not go on anymore. Shortly after, an iPhone charger also stopped working.

We refrained from plugging any of our other expensive equipment in the sockets, as we did not want to risk losing more electronics. Weeks later, when we could finally have the laptop looked at by an IT specialist, they found that the charger port had BURNT, completely ruining the motherboard of our expensive MacBook Pro. We are now faced with unexpected, high costs for a perfectly new laptop, which cannot be repaired anywhere else other than an Apple manufacturer. We were unable to carry out our work for the remainder of the Africa trip, which was very disappointing.

Although the hotel itself is perfectly fine, this unreliable power source was a big stain on our stay.

Overall was a great place, incredible view and a little piece of paradise. Staff are very welcoming and helpful. However attention to detail is lacking.
We stayed in eco cabins 1,4 & 5. We didn’t get our coffee station restocked. cabin 4 there was a massive spider along with a web right outside the sliding door.

Breakfast was amazing. Hippo tour outstanding.

On a previous trip we were in St Lucia Ecolodge, especially for the high quality of the excursions offered.We appreciated very much the night tour and the World Heritage tour.
Located in a quiet street of St Lucia, but close enough to shops ans restaurants.
Highly recommended !

We have stayed in St Lucia several times and this lodge was by far the best bang for buck and much nicer grounds than other accommodation in town at the same price. And the views and pool are simply stunning. We were delighted at how great the place was given the price. Really good value! We Absolutely Loved this place. Highly recommended...
