            Worst place i stayed at”

            Worst value for money i ever spent. Shonalanga's website is very misleading. False advertising. 1. Rooms were not ready on arrival 2. No air-conditioner 3. Ceiling fans were not the safest 4. The rooms had a very dusty smell 5. Bed Linen needs replacing. They looked brownish/ yellowish/dirty 6. Pots & Pans were rusty 7. Cutlery was rusty & broken 8. TV reception was poor 9. Taps were not secured in the bathroom. They were loose. Water sprays out of the bathroom taps like a shower 10. Shower floor needs a good clean 11. One unit had a shower curtain which is unhygienic 12. Place is in need of urgent maintenance 13. The pool was not clean and could not be used in the evenings 14. Distribution board is a shocker. Fire waiting to happen 15. Property does not have a driveway gate. Walk in/out. Drive in/out. No security on site especially without a locked 16. entrance gate. 17. Evening receptionist/helper is in desperate need of customer training. She was arrogant and rude. Never smiles/gre

            Prima gedateerde plek”

            In het centrum van St Lucia, vlakbij de supermarkt ligt Shonalanga Lodge. Gedateerde kamers die in prima staat zijn, maar wel hun gebreken hebben. Bijvoorbeeld een ventilator die alleen op standje maximaal kan en een douchestraal waar alleen een mier genoegen mee zou nemen. Er zijn ruime braai gelegenheden, een zwembad (zonder ligbedden) en een WiFi spot die overigens niet in de kamer werkt. In de kamer zijn overigens een klein keukentje met koelkast aanwezig. Tip: Werk aan een spontanere ontvangst.
