    Elephant Lake Hotel
    While the hotel is well situated, our room was not particularly clean. The room/hotel could use some updating. WIFi does not work in the rooms but only in select places.

    Hippo’s on the lawn.
    Best position in St Lucia. Saw Hippo’s on hotel grounds twice. Gardens and pool area make this one of the best options for a short stay. The rooms, although not huge, were serviced and kept neat and clean. Restaurant food compared with the best you will find in town. Portions were generous, and the service better than expected. Overall good value. Breakfast choices would satisfy most travelers. Wi-fi was slow, but adequate. We stayed in self- catering apartments in St Lucia previously, but this is without a doubt the best option for short stop-over. The highlight of our stay was seeing the hippo up close, grazing right next to the hotel pool.

    Amazing 2 night stay!
    Elephant Lake hotel is situated perfectly in St.Lucia within walking distance to all restaurants and stores.While the room was comfortable we ould of preferred a queen size bed instead of 2twin beds pushed together. The telephone in the room was not operational meaning we had to keep walking to reception for any assistance. We booked activities through the hotel which were absolutely amazing and we really appreciate the hospitality from the hotel as well as our amazing game drive guide, Sipho. The game drive and sunset boat cruise along the estuary is a must! Breakfast was good.
