Walk through the door and read as in the jungle. A great owner, great care, a small but pleasant swimming pool, the rooms are older but you have not come in for comfort in the room ... excellent location, a few steps wherever you need, just around the corner market and food ....

We enjoyed our stay at Umlilo Lodge. The location was great just off the main street in St. Lucia which made walking to dinner each night very easy. There was also ample parking out front of the lodge. We spent one day just relaxing by the pool which was really nice and peaceful as there were not many other people...

Well located, nice and very typical. Big room. We only spent 1 night. Good breakfast. Nearby within 1min walking distance shops, restaurants, banks, and drugstore. You can événements let the car In front of hotel. There is a small swimming pool but we haven't use it.

Ok, so I will comment the bad things first. The water in the bathroom is either too Cold or too hot. There is no internet except in the reception. But this is a family run little jewel in the city of St Lucia. But inside the hotel area you feel like in a forest. There is water, fishes, frogs, monkeys...

This place is amazing. The lodge is small and cousy. A lovely garden and a small but nice pool. A place for both couples and families. We stayed for six nights. The owners are so nice and helpful. The breakfast was more than enough. The hotel is clean, big rooms and located in the centre of town. It is quiet...

Umlilo's client service is brilliant and the owners are a pleasure to work with. The lodge is stunning and the breakfast is very nice. They are centrally placed which makes the evening walks easier. We could only stay in the small room next to the breakfast are, which cost us some privacy. Next time ill book another room.

A very exotic place which gives the feeling of beeing in the djungle. Very nice rooms, very good breakfast and a cosy atmosphere. Short walk to main road with all resturants. Helpful and trustworthy staff - you get very good tips on what to do as well as support to book tickets. Can absolutley recomend!
