Beautiful oasis on the main street, a few minutes walk from pretty much anything in St Lucia town. Each air conditioned room and bathroom (ours had a separate shower and bath) was spacious, with its own small shady veranda set round the small pool, in beautiful grounds, all spotlessly clean. Well sound proofed - we heard no noise at all....

Lidiko Lodge was our first stop directly after the airport in St Lucia. We like simple, yet clean and cosy places and Lidiko was perfect: warm welcome, professional and helpful staff, kind owners, hearty atmosphere, clean room and public places, beautiful garden all around and a lovely pool for the warm afternoons! Breakfast was also very good.

the hotel stands back from the road and you have to find your way to the back parking and find your way to reception . once you are there very nice with nice big Rooms and a litle verandah overlooking the pool . breakfast a bit late at 07h30 but that is one of these things

Friendliest people in town. Got some great advise on what to do around town. Rooms were very neat and tidy and enjoyed the sherry and chocolates they left for us. Really enjoyed our stay there and will be back soon.

We arrived thinking to spend two nights and spent four. Staff and owners are particularly friendly. The individual bungalows grouped around the pool gave community feel plus privacy. The breakfasts are wonderful and location ideal.

From the moment we checked in to our great room, to the moment our lovely hostess and both owners said goodbye, it was all perfect.
