Well what can I say.... if you love friendly, smiley people with a laid back vibe, this is most definitely the place to stay! We booked B&B at the hotel with friends who were here for the cricket and an early 50th birthday. The property is typical Caribbean style & you can use the amenities of the Inn & Resort (beachside) also! The breakfast is good, a tad unusual if you're a Brit Abroad wanting your Full English!? Normally a bacon or sausage alternate days, beans, scrambled egg but then a mix of fried plaintains/steamed veg/salted fish. My husband enjoyed & I was more than happy with the fresh fruit daily! Excellent cocktails & obvs Piton, several happy hours during the day & courtesy bus service to the Resort or Marina (both only a 10min walk). Ideally located in walking distance to beaches, bars, restaurants, supermarkets, banks, shops & local bus routes. Because of ALL the welcoming staff whom I could not praise enough, I would happily recommend this hotel to families & couples, certainly a bunch of the Barmy Army were enjoying themselves! Read less

The Bay Gardens Hotel is in the centre of Rodney Bay close to shops, restaurants, and a 15 minute walk to Renduit Beach and their sister hotel. It is a lovely hotel, welcoming and efficient reception, fantastic staff, and kept spotlessly clean, a credit to the housekeeping team. One of the main attractions is being able to use all of the facilities at their beach resort. My only negative comment relates to the bar and restaurant. The bar service can be slow, on one occasion over 30 minutes to receive service. The buffets in the restaurant could be improved, for the bbq evening all food is cooked in the kitchen and not on a bbq in the open, and often the food is in warm trays in a cold air conditioned room. The above is my only negative comment, we had a fantastic holiday and will return. Read less

There are four properties owned by the same group. The Inn; The Hotel; Marina Haven newly Acquired; The Resort being top of the range, we stayed in the hotel site. We last stayed here for the ICC World T20 in May 2010. The hotel is at the opposite end of island from airport so 1.5+ hour journey. We were greeted at the front desk with a Fruit & Rum… Read more
There are four properties owned by the same group. The Inn; The Hotel; Marina Haven newly Acquired; The Resort being top of the range, we stayed in the hotel site. We last stayed here for the ICC World T20 in May 2010. The hotel is at the opposite end of island from airport so 1.5+ hour journey. We were greeted at the front desk with a Fruit & Rum Punch which was refreshing after a long flight and truly welcome. Our room was on the ground floor just near the pool and also close the bar & restaurant. The room was exactly what you want it to be. It's Caribbean. Twin beds. Very comfortable, Air conditioning just about kept room OK at night. Also had everything I needed including a fridge, Iron & board, flat screen TV, hairdryer etc. My room was cleaned every day. Perfectly situated close to local banks and supermarkets and numerous restaurants close by just I remembered it some years ago. The breakfast was included for our stay and it consisted of a hot and cold buffet offering many different items and always changing the items each morning so we weren't always eating the same thing. The managers rum punch evening on a Monday is a special time to meet the managers (who are amazing} and enjoy the local music. The staff here are so helpful and nothing too much trouble. With the Beausejour Cricket Ground (Gros Islet) or is it is now the Darren Sammy ground only 10 minutes away just perfect location for the hotel. Most evenings we went out to sample the delights of what Rodney bay had to offer with all the many and various restaurants & Bars within a 10 to 15 minutes’ walk from the hotel. Of course an England win in four days was an extra pleasure. Read less

Well located in Rodney Bay, close to everything but far enough away to be quiet. Clean with comfy beds and friendly staff. Breakfast buffet is good but drinks service can be quite slow. Most nights there are specials and/or entertainment. Monday night was free rum punches! 2 happy hours a day with 2 for 1 drinks.
