We arrived late afternoon, and everthing was sorted and we were welcomed by very friendly staff. The cabins are immaculate for self catering. Very nice atmosphere in the cabins as well. Beautiful sundowners area with a swimmingpool overlooking the estuary. We were lucky enough to have hippos graze in the garden while having sundowners. Note: bring insect repellant, it is...

It´s a quite place where you have your own lodge. The lodge is perfect equipped to cook something. Nice swimming pool with sun loungers to relax. The accomodation has a perfect location in St. Lucia and it isn´t far to town center.

Sunset Lodge is the most amazing place with beautiful views of the St Lucia estuary. BBQ facilities available and simple and comfortable accommodation in fun wooden chalets. The town has places to eat out or buy food for the self catering chalets so no need to buy and take up before hand. So many fun things to do in St...

It's good value for money. Clean and relaxing. Walking distance to the main strip with all the restaurants and shops. Great view at the back of the property for a nice sunset / sunrise. If you are on a budget this one is for you

We booked 4 nights at Sunset Lodge on the back of the good reviews on trip advisor & the owners website. We had initially booked a luxury chalet where we discovered the deck had no view and looked & felt more like a motel complex. The front chalet was available and we upgraded to that one which at least had...

Sunset Lodge is probably one of the best accommodation you can get in St Lucia, it offers great privacy for the guests and the cabins are quite comfortable and homely. The staff is quite helpful at providing advise. Thank you for a great stay. We will be staying here again on our return in the near future.

We loved our time at Sunset Lodge. The only suggestion I would make is to equip the kitchen a little better with cooking utensils and sharp knives. The pool area was lovely to relax and the views were very attractive.

Very clean. Air-conditioner and TV in the room. Kitchen equipped with all the basics one would need, incl. microwave, fridge, small braai, cutlery and crockery. Nice pool and bonfire area. Overall a very relaxing experience, away from the busy main road, but within walking distance.
