6/10 Good

Simple accommodation
We had an okay 5 night stay. The owner upgraded us to a 2 bedroom cottage that is a bit down at the heels. This was however great of her because the unit I had rented on would not have been acceptable. Clearly some attention is needed to linens etc. There are barking dogs on a regular basis and signs of their presence around the property. There were no chairs around the pool.The owner was very gracious and acted promptly on a request for a working hairdryer ,kettle and decent coffee maker. She is knowledgeable about the area but all the info was delivered as we arrived after a long journey so we did not take much in. All in all there are many other choices around St. Lucia.

Nice self catering flat in a beautiful location
Ingwenya Lodge is situated at the edge of St.Lucia village (nearest the jungle on the seaward side) The facilities were great with everything you need to just get on with it yourself. Maids cleaned the flats every day with regular bedding and towel changes. The proprietor was very helpful with information on all activities in the area Wake up in the morning to the many exotic bird calls and monkeys trotting around. We pre-booked for two days here but finished up staying 9 days then heading back to Richards Bay for homeward flight. I would highly recommend this accommodation and area as a base to explore the many safari parks etc. on its doorstep and beautiful beaches nearby

2/10 Poor

would never stay at this hotel again. It was inadequate in satisfaction and condition.
I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. The lighting on the outside was bad. The aircondioner is our rooms did not work. The internet didnt work in the room. We only got a very few channels in the room for t.v. We did not have top sheets on the bed. It is not worth the amount this hotel asks for.

Uitstekend verblijf bij hartelijke eigenaresse
Omdat we met 5 personen waren kregen wij een gratis upgrade. Leuk appartement met 3 slaapkamers, direct naast het het zwembad en zelfs uitzicht op de oceaan in de verte.

Sehr schöne Unterkunft gut geeignet für einen längeren Aufenthalt für Selbstversorger. Obwohl wir nur eine Nacht dort verbrachten, wurden wir auf das größere Zimmer upgegradet weil dieses gerade frei war. Sehr zu empfehlen!
