We stayed for two nights at the Umlilo Lodge. It was a very pleasant stay. The room was well decorated, clean, ans spacious. The breakfast was nice, they serve you very well. They have a nice pool and a marvelous garden. I really would come back here!

Umlilo is a the best in town, with spacious airconditioned rooms and wifi.
It is very central to all the restaurants, supermarket,bank and sunset jetty.
I like the tropical feel and monkeys frolicking around in the trees.
It serves a fantastic breakfast and has good strong coffee!

I have to stay that my stay was excellent considering that after an 11hr flight followed by an 8hr drive to St Lucia, we were welcomed by the owners and even though we had not pre booked an evening meal it was no problem, the rooms are really spacious as is the bathroom, the rooms are cleaned on a daily basis the breakfast was excellent with a good choice of food, we were welcomed and the service that we received was secound to none and no request was denied. I will definetly be coming back.
