Lidiko Lodge is very well positioned on the main street of St Lucia. Quiet but just a few steps away from the restaurants and shops. The whole place is very well kept, spotless rooms and prety gardens. The breakfasts are great with a good selection of fruits, yoghurt, cheesa, breads and cooked food. The owners and staff are friendly and...

Super relax and friendly people, with good and varied breakfast included. People are very friendly and helpfull. The pool and garden with butterflies and monkeys is like a paradise. Location is perfect at the strip, with shops restaurants and bars on short walking distances. However on your porch in the garden in front of the lodges it is quiet. Very...

We had an amazing time at Lidiko Lodge. We traveled with our 7 months old baby and it all worked out excellent. The room was big enough to build a little changing table and had a kettle which was important for the bottle (my husband would say for coffee...)...I guess with babies the priorities change :) The room was beautiful...

We booked three nights and stayed for ten. Lidiko Lodge has a tropical feel and a lovely garden with a very inviting pool in the centre of all the accommodation. It's very peaceful and quiet and yet only a very short walk to all the restaurants. The rooms and ensuites are spacious, clean and very comfortable. Great breakfasts with a...

A most enjoyable stay. A very nice, well situated hotel with helpful, customer oriented staff. Take care to check with the front desk for restaurant options. My family and I will stay in the same hotel when we return to the area.

The room was a welcome respite from a long safari trip, and it was easy to relax and enjoy the surrounding even though the day was RAINY! What I will remember the most is how the staff (room service to grounds upkeep to servers in the restaurant) seemed to love their work! I noticed that many were singing or humming...

I stayed at Lidiko with four friends. Three of us stayed in the traditional rondavel-style suite, which was spacious and pleasant. The staff were so friendly and made us welcome from the moment we arrived. Breakfast was a real treat, too. I would recommend Lidiko to anyone coming to St. Lucia.

Beautiful oasis on the main street, a few minutes walk from pretty much anything in St Lucia town. Each air conditioned room and bathroom (ours had a separate shower and bath) was spacious, with its own small shady veranda set round the small pool, in beautiful grounds, all spotlessly clean. Well sound proofed - we heard no noise at all....

Lidiko Lodge was our first stop directly after the airport in St Lucia. We like simple, yet clean and cosy places and Lidiko was perfect: warm welcome, professional and helpful staff, kind owners, hearty atmosphere, clean room and public places, beautiful garden all around and a lovely pool for the warm afternoons! Breakfast was also very good.
