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 arrived following an 8.5 hour flight, followed by a 1 hour 40 minute drive from Saint Lucia international airport to the Bay Gardens Inn. Needless to say we were BEAT. However we started smiling from check-in and didn’t stop until we left. The welcome and check-inn was filled laughs, bantz and smiles AND A GLASS OF MUCH NEEDED FREE RUM PUNCH?! The spacious room overlooked the pool, was air conditioned, fit for purpose and very clean. No complaints. We were delighted to have access to all bay gardens sister hotels the hotel over the way, and Bay Gardens Resorts which you can get to on the free shuttle bus. Hilariously, we got all our local information from a lil legend that sits at the Bay Gardens Hotel bar, Carol, the hotel ambassador. The inn is close to bars and restaurants in Rodney Bay which is very useful and those wanting to keep costs down can head to the super market “masseys” The only thing for us was the pool was getting maintenance for the majority of the stay but we had full access to pool over at the hotel. The hotel staff went out of their way to celebrate my parter Gavin’s birthday. We were surprised with a card (which we’ve saved) a banner and some FABulous sparkling wine (see pic). We highly recommend staying in any of the hotels. The staff are unbelievably friendly and happy to help in any way they can. Thank you for a great holiday xxx Read less
