Bay Gardens Inn

St Lucia, Caribbean

The hotel

Slipping into island life’s never been so easy — Bay Gardens Inn delivers the authentic St Lucia experience you can only find at a small inn, but all the fun and features of a big resort hotel. That’s because it’s three hotels in one. You’ll stay at the intimate 33 room inn in Rodney Bay Village, but get complimentary travel to its two ‘big sister’ hotels, including one on Reduit Beach. So you can spend days enjoying free water sports, sunbathing, and taking on the challenge of Splash Island Water Park — an open water adventure course just off shore. You can also use their other facilities, from the kids’ club to the spa. The inn’s got surprises up its own short summer sleeves too, including a sun-trap of a pool, complimentary WiFi, and the tavern treats of its Ti Ponche Bar.

We stayed at the Bay Gardens Inn for our family (12 and 9 year old) holiday between 19/07/19-02/08/19. The hotel is located in the town of Rodney Bay not far from the supermarket, shops, bars and restaurants. Initially we weren't happy with the location as my wife found the area quite intimating but we soon settled with help from the fantastic members of staff at the hotel. Although the hotel is situated in the town, they provide a shuttle service that will take you their sister hotel Bay Gardens Beach Resort (about 3 minutes away) located on Reduit Beach where they also have plenty of watersports and the fabulous water park for the kids. The hotel offers free admission to the waterpark for the duration of your stay and this alone saved us a fortune as the kids were on there all day, everyday we were at the beach. I must say a big thank you to Austin who really looked after us during our stay and even arranged a driver for us who took us around the island where we visited Castries, Soufiere, the volcano and sulphur springs, the botanical gardens and Hotel Chocolat Tree to Bean experience and lunch. Also a thank you to Deborah who helped us to settle into the hotel and reassured us of Rodney Bay and the surrounding area. We particularly enjoyed our morning walks to the Harbour Club, a ten minute walk down the road for breakfast at the 7th Heaven Bakery, along with some lovely meals there during the evening. This is certainly not the best hotel we've ever stayed in but it's definitely not the worst. It's the staff that makes this place, so friendly, helpful and would do anything for you. Read less

Generally the staff were all very friendly and hospitable. We dined at the restaurant at the Beach Resort and thoroughly enjoyed the food and the friendliness of the staff. They did their best to cater for the dining needs of my wife who is Vegan. The chef actually came out to speak to her about what she required. In the end she was extremely satisfied with her meal. We liked the fact that we good have gone to any of the three hotels to enjoy the amenities. We therefore enjoyed the time spent at the Beach Resort. We used the pool as well as the Splash Island Water Park. We also dined at the Poolside restaurant. For me personally, the cocktails were amazing. My to children also had a wonderful time and they really want us to visit your hotel every year. We all really enjoyed Splash Island although we found the wait was a bit too long. However it is certainly an asset to the hotel. The room at the Inn was great. We always came back to a clean room with our beds well made and towels changed according to our request. We were all very comfortable especially with the peace and quiet. Read less

Several friends from high school stayed at Bay Gardens Inn to celebrate in July 2019 and enjoyed every minute! Lovely, clean, and very quiet. Central location was perfect relation to various venues, yet without feeling constricted. Easy walk to the beach, and shuttles also were available. Rooms were well appointed, and I appreciated the coffee pot, coffees/teas/creamers, as well as the fridge. Bed was comfortable, balcony was the perfect place to enjoy coffee in the mornings (drying rack a big plus!), and shower pressure was very good. Kudos for green policy regarding towels and linens! Staff were very kind, friendly and helpful—especially Helena and Anise. Went above and beyond for our reunion dinner. Breakfasts were delicious with ample choices. Pool was a great place to congregate and relax. Definitely will recommend to others and would love to return. Thanks for a wonderful visit! Read less
