A shopping mall that they rave about in all the brochures but, frankly, very disappointing. A sprinkling of shops but nothing much to buy. Lots of souvenir 'tat'. One coffee shop that was ok. A Diamonds International store here which is probably the classiest joint in the Mall. Lots of hotels elsewhere in the Bay and some restaurants. Visited in... More

Rodney Bay has everything located within a few steps of each other and I mean that literally! Hotels, Banks, Market, Malls, Bars, Restaurants, and Beaches! Ideal for a couples or family vacation. Even the single folk can have a good time. It was probably the first vacation my family and I took that didn't require the use of a motor... More

Very commercialised & did not reflect the heart of St. Lucia. The best part about it was the experience of the bus ride there & back.

We always spend a day or three at Rodney Bay each week while on holiday in St.Lucia.We have visited when it is quiet and tranquil and busy and crazy - either way it is one of our favourite places to spend time.Lunch at Spinnakers is a must but be prepared for a long lunch...just as it should be when in...
