No warm welcome. Concrete bed and furniture! Roof leaks on the bed. No possibility to change. Poorly decorated lodge. Frogs in the room. And lots of them outside. Shower not clean. Got sick after breakfast. Service without a smile.More

Value for money in the ecolodge. Nice setting in the middle of the bush (a dirt road leading to the lodge), They have a restaurant on side with good food. excellent advicers working at the bar. The lodge is not so close to St. Lucia.
