    We stayed at the Bay Gardens Inn for 10 days in March. The staff were great! The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The shuttle to the beach is very helpful but it’s a very easy walk as well. The breakfast was great with a good variety to choose from.

    We were looking for a budget hotel on the island of St Lucia, and this one from the Virgin Value collection fitted the bill perfectly. I always do a lot of research so it was as I expected. Esther on reception gave us a warm welcome when we arrived, and was very helpful and friendly throughout our 10 day stay. The room was very spacious, bright, overlooked the pool as i believe all the rooms do. Plenty of storage for our clothes which I liked so we could unpack properly. We had 2 welcome meetings on our first day, the first with Leeandy who represents the hotel. She was very warm and friendly and gave us the different hotels schedules and suggested things to do etc. The second was with the Virgin representative Natacha, who was also very warm, helpful and friendly, it was like sitting down having a natter with a friend. There is no bar or restaurant on site and nowhere to buy drinks. We knew this beforehand so were forewarned. You have to walk across to the Bay Gardens Hotel, a 2 minute walk, where they have a bar and restaurant. This is also where you will have your breakfast. Breakfast was good, nice setting overlooking the pool. Huge variety to chose from which varied daily. There’s cereals, fruits, bread, bagels, English muffins, yogurts, cooked breakfasts (items changed daily). They will happily make you an Omelette up fresh, we had these twice and enjoyed them. I also particularly enjoyed the Cheese Scones and Banana cake. We had a meal at the Bay Garden hotel across the road, unfortunately I really didn’t rate it. There are plenty of places within 5-10 min walk though, so this isn’t a problem. I liked the pool area as there is no music, so it’s just very quiet and peaceful. The pool isn’t very deep though. Just remember to stock your fridge up with drinks and snacks, unless you don’t mind walking across the road to the Bay Garden hotel. The supermarket is a 3 minute walk and has everything you could possibly need. The hotel has a shuttle with runs every hour to its sister resorts. We caught it down to the Bay Gardens Beach Resort regularly, as you are allowed to use all there facilities. The beach is lovely, they have a really nice pool too, with a bar and several restaurants too, which we ate at and enjoyed our meals. Would I go again? Yes I would, the hotel was as I expected. I would prefer it if they made the shuttle bus every 30 minutes, because at peak times not everyone could fit on and had to wait for the shuttle to come back again, if you were first in the queue and couldn’t get on it was annoying. St Lucia is a beautiful island, there are lots of things to do and we didn’t have time to do them all. The people are friendly so I would return.

    Near all amenities, nice room, good pool. Shuttle service to beach,staff friendly and helpful. We stayed in the Inn which is just across the road from the main hotel, shuttle serves it as well. Used local buses much cheaper than taxis

    Time to relax

    This is a great place to relax. The rooms are clean and extremely comfortable and the staff are very helpful. Breakfast caters for everyone and is plentiful and the evening buffets were tasty and varied. Lovely place.

    Long overdue holiday

    I had stayed at The Bay Gardens hotel many years ago, but chose the Inn for this visit as it is quite small but you get to use the facilities of the wider group of hotels. The room was basic but comfortable, but for its size it would have been nice if there was a sofa or armchair as an alternate place to sit. I loved the fact that we practically had pool to ourselves and it was nice and quiet. For meals and entertainment we had to walk next door to the hotel, but I liked that as it meant our room was quiet in the evenings. The food and service were good. For the breakfast buffet a nice mixed of foods to try plus the basics of scrambled eggs sausage etc. There was a shuttle service to the Bay Gardens Beach Resort, one an hour but it was only a 20 minute walk. More restaurants here, a spa and it was right on the beach. It was great to be based at the Inn, right in the heart of Rodney Bay with plenty of choices to eat out, but able to access what was on offer at the other hotels and the beach.
