My wife and I are from the UK and stayed here during a trip to South Africa. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast excellent.The manager could not have been more helpful in arranging and recommending trips and places to eat. This is a great area to visit.

A lovely place to stay in St Lucia. We stayed in the Luxury Pool view room which was really comfy and so relaxing by the pool. Our host Toni is very accommodating and gave us some great tips about the surrounding area. Breakfast is great and loved that each day had something different.

The aircon in my room was not properly functioning. But it is a very good establishment. My next visit to St Lucia, Whalesong will be the place. My family liked it as well, especially kids playing games. Next time we'll have time for the pool and braai

Thanks for your feedback. The air conditioning only required a quick setting adjustment on the remote control, but we are happy to hear the entire family enjoyed their stay. We look forward to hosting you again in the near future.
