    Very comfortable stay in a perfect location in central St Lucia. Even saw a baby hippo in the garden! Staff were very helpful and unit was spotless. Shower wasn't very strong though although plenty of hot water.

    The place is untidy and not cleaned well, found lime scale in the kettle. Air-conditioning did not work. Woke up to no hot water. The beds were uncomfortable. The only place that was well kept was the braai area.
