    It was a great stay at Whalesong. Both cozy and familiar with nice hosts. I really liked the big bowl of fruit salad at the breakfast buffet! We received very good recommendations for tours and restaurants. A moskitonet at the bathroom window...

Neighborhood info

St. Lucia is particularly special in that our hippo population share the town with us! In the evenings, the hippos that live in our estuary begin roaming the residential areas in search of food. They will spend the entire night looking for scrumptious grass to graze and head back to their watery home just before daybreak. For this reason, we advise our guests to please drive to and from your dinner and entertainment after dark.
