We had heard good reports about B & B 's in South Africa so we were terribly disappointed with this one . The rooms are dark and very old fashioned . The bed linen and towels are stained and smell musty. We were booked in for 2 nights and only stayed for 1.

We spent two nights at African Ambiance in a very pleasant and truly african atmosphere, surrounded by an amazing garden. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated and we enjoyed a great breakfast with John, the guest house owner. We will definitely go back!

And also then - with very poor signal. When it came to dissensions about the paymentconditions the owner started to shout instead of coming to an...

We stayed for 3 nights - Laura was really very helpful in advising us what to do and where to go. Breakfast was superb. But the rooms were definitely not 4 stars... Crowded and dark, no space to put "goodies" in the bathroom (and women have plenty, sometimes :-)) Our room clearly hadn't been properly cleaned for a long time...

We have been here just 2 nights, but the welcoming was very good! Breakfast is fully satisfying, the decorative style is captivating and charming and the owners very helpful!It also seemed one the most typical structures in St.Lucia.

We have stayed three nights with Laura and John and have enjoyed their hospitaity. The place is very central to the beach (about 300 meters). Laura kindly booked the Hippo tour for us upon arrival. We recommand that you take their honeymoon suite. The Jacuzzi is very nice in the evening. Also, John has done a nice African braai on...
