The only place I'm staying when I'm going to st. Lucia

Tour65139732598 (Trinidad and Tobago) on Apr 11, 2024

This was my family's first trip to st Lucia and let me say , the stay at this hotel was absolutely wonderful. First off arrival was met with friendly smiles of the front room staff , who wasted no time in thoroughly explaining what we were in for at the venue . The activities offered at the venue for both kids and adults were well orchestrated , not to mention fun. The food was excellent and bountiful and the staff waitress after the first day ensured our favourite seats were reserved, special shout out to Calise ( hope i spelt her name correctly) for always going tht extra mile to ensure my family was always comfortable during dining .. bay gardens i owe u guys nothing , thank you for making this family vacation as relaxing and comfortable as it was

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.

vjccove on Apr 08, 2024

The Good - The staff is great. Our housekeeper Nicky was wonderful. After a few days eating at the restaurant, the hostess remembered where we like to sit, and Harmony is the best waitress. Grounds are well maintained and the units clean. This is a resort that has a lot of potential, but is not being kept up. The Bad - The food is just ok. The wait time for drinks and food is ridiculous. I know it's island time, but...... The beach chairs and umbrellas have seen better days, and while the beach is lovely, the water park tends to bring a lot of foot traffic going by and the cruise ships drop off loads of passengers to the left of the property. I think the hardest part was that you are in the middle of nowhere! There is no shopping unless you head about 1.5 hrs south. All the activities are south. Mud baths, Chocolate tours, waterfalls, Pitons etc. Again 1.5 - 2 hr car ride, yes seriously. There are a few tours by catamaran, but it does make it an all day event. The airport is as south as you can get, sooooo yes, to get here by car it's 1.5 to 2 hrs. depending on the time of day. We took the ferry that's offered online (they do an amazing job) both there and back and while its lovely and has beautiful views, again its 2-2.5 hrs The Ugly - Our second unit was missing the door lock, had a broken dresser, broken towel rack and kitchen supplies were pathetic. This unit also had black mold in the ceiling of the bathroom. After maintenance came in and poked a big hole in the ceiling (crap everywhere), they ended up moving us back to the unit we were in for our first week (had to pack up again!). Good thing we moved though, because the next morning all the water in our building cut off ( I was in the shower of course). It was a burst pipe where we had been in the other unit!! Lasted most of the day. By the way, no compensation was offered for any of the inconveniences. Beds are very very hard. The all inclusive option is a HUGE waste of money. They own a few other resorts where you can eat, food is no better, hotter, no view and you have to take the shuttle van. Don't forget to time your meal just right, cuz the van only comes by every hour, so it you miss it, you're stuck there for another hour. You have to keep asking for all benefits with the all inclusive. Like the restaurant vouchers for other restaurants. We went to Jacques. It was the highlight of our week where food is concerned. Thankfully we could go twice! Last, we overheard a few conversations of staff. So sad. Some are getting paid around $5.50 EC an hour ($2 US). The owners should be ashamed of themselves!! How are these lovely people suppose to support a family and not live in poverty! With all the money that we spent, I would have rather gone to Hawaii, it would have been less money. We would never return here. We've travel quite a bit for years, I'd say this was the worst vacation we've ever had.

The Most Disppointing Hotel I've Visited

Stay61937260283 on Apr 07, 2024

For $405ec I did NOT receive the two course meal that I was sold over the phone. It was my daughter's birthday and we could NOT get a chair by the pool. We had a coupon for a ride but yet still had to pay $60ec for a ride because the coupon didn't cover it. This is the worst hotel that I have visited and as a local they treat you rubbish. The spa was booked when I called about a week or 2 b4 & on the day we arrived they said that the spa is booked. We were only able to get ONE slot just because a tourist cancelled. This is UNACCEPTABLE & DISRESPECTFUL' especially when people are spending their hard earned money. I will NOT advice anyone to go there is you are looking for value for your money...This is NOT the place for you!

Great place to stay! Perfect location!

ashley20242024 (Vancouver, Canada) on Mar 30, 2024

The resort was beautiful with lots of activities throughout the day for both adults and kids. The rooms were spacious, comfortable, and clean. The beach was long with plenty of beach chairs and umbrellas. The water was calm and perfect for swimming. The staff were so friendly and welcoming. The restaurant food was delicious and perfectly situated on the beach to watch the beautiful sunsets each night.

Happy place

ClareAndIanUB40 on Mar 30, 2024

Fantastic hotel and beach location. Staff are so kind and welcoming. Particular mention to Curlis, Candi and Alitishia for their warm and smiling welcomes and making us feel really special. Love the way this hotel runs and is so happy. The food is amazing too! We have to go back! ???????
