My husband and I have recently come back from an 11 day stay in Rodney Bay at the Bay Gardens Inn. We had the most relaxing peaceful time at this beautiful establishment. It is part of the Bay Gardens group ....and in my opinion is the amazing unsung hero! It is this beautiful haven in busy bustling Rodney Bay.....but you wouldn't know...a quiet oasis. The Inn doesnt have a bar or restaurant but step across the road you are at the Bay Gardens Hotel..but saying that the staff are more than happy to order you a drink. Our room was comfortable cool and spotless. The bed was amazing. Shower and water flow was very good. Towels and beach towels good. Coffee and tea facilities spot on. We used to walk to Reduit Beach to use the sun loungers at the Bay Gardens Beach Resort....always a space. Big shout out to April and Maverick. We would sometimes go for a nightcap at the Bay Gardens hotel.....thank you Terry. We were self catering so we didn't eat at the Hotel but heard it was good. We would always have doubles and patties for breakfast! Our standout staff were Zane, Kameron, Petula and our housekeep Miss Esther....but to be fair all the staff were good. Good Bay Gardens brand values and customer service. All in all very satisfied and happy. Good St Lucian hotel group. Read less

Currently staying at this hotel. Just been to the restaurant, near 5pm. Ordered a BLT and a Chicken baguette. Despite there being no customers in the restaurant, after 45 mins waiting, including the barman asking them to check, I gave up and returned to my room.
