“A fine Hotel in an ideal location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

This , our second visit to the Bay Gardens Beach Resort Hotel was , if anything , better than our stay last year. This is due , in part , to the warmth of the welcome we received on our return. It was almost like coming home ! The staff there , without exception , are among the most friendly people I have encountered in many years of foreign travel. The BGBR is an ideally situated Beach Front Hotel with a level of comfort and convenience which I would say is second to none in Rodney Bay. It has a Beach Bar where you can shelter from the heat of the day with a cool beer or sip cocktails whilst watching a beautiful sunset during the evening Happy Hour. In addition to the usual facilities e.g. Pool , Restaurants , Free Wifi which are all excellent , the Hotel also has a Water Sports Centre where you can participate in Sailing Snorkeling , Scuba Diving etc. It also runs a Water Taxi Service to Pigeon Island - a National Trust property - which is a must for snorkeling , walking , and also steeped in history. Whilst I am full of plaudits for this Hotel , there is one small difficulty that they need to address and that is the closing time of the main bar at night. It is far too early. You've returned from dinner somewhere and would like to have a drink or two and chat to friends that you've made during your stay but in no time at all (10.00pm - 10.30pm) they have stopped serving drinks. I guess that a lot of residents return to their rooms to continue drinking , but that is not my style. Having aired my complaint , it must be said that , on balance , the BGBR is a very good hotel and I'm considering returning there next year.

This was my 2nd time in St. Lucia and my 2nd stay at BGBR. It’s a home away from home when you stay at BGBR. The staff treats you like family and truly makes an effort to get to know you and make your stay as comfortable and entertaining as possible as soon as you get out of the taxi from the airport. A big shout out to Kenroy, Nal, Olive and Lester. You are all so wonderful in greeting everyone and taking care of every little detail or need. You are the first people we meet when we arrive, along with Ms. Cheryl Gustave, and you start out our vacations on the right foot! Thank you for all you do!

The bar staff, Ali, Elran, and Joan are fantastic! Whether making a specialty drink or opening a Piton, they are there with a smile and so much fun to be around it’s no wonder we liked to stay at the resort bar so many evenings. Happy hour is the best with great entertainment and a beautiful sunset! And, Richard, the Activities Director, always has a smile on his face and entertains the guests throughout their stay. All in all, BGBR is the perfect place to stay.

If you’re thinking of BGBR, just do it. You will not be disappointed. I will definitely stay here again...which I am hoping isn't too far away.

Staff were really welcoming and helpful. We were not too impressed by the food and therefore went out to neighbouring restaurants mostly (which were very good). Two minor improvements needed - (i) a softer bed and (ii) some screening to give more privacy on the balcony.

Room Tip: Try to choose a room with sun or shade as you like. Ours had no sun.

You probably won't find an island or hotel that provides better customer service. The staff at the resort makes you feel so welcomed and will do everything to try to make your stay more enjoyable. If you're not into all inclusive resorts and like to try out different restaurants and bars, this location can't be beat. It's on ocean front property and a 10 minute walk to town that caters to tourism. The grounds were very clean and the wi-fi connection was great. I could even use the wi-fi at the pool or other places around the hotel. The food was good, but the portions are small. The bar prices are reasonable and the drinks are good. Only large negative was my snorkeling experience with Eastern Caribbean Diving that was done through the resort. The experience ruined our day and we had to try our best for it not to ruin our night as well. Overall, I would recommend this resort and I would go back to again.

Room Tip: Obviously poolside and beach views are more expensive but with the other rooms, go with 2nd or 3rd f...

Wow...in all my extensive travels I have never stayed at a place that makes you feel sooo welcomed. I have stayed here several times and each time keeps getting better and better. Nothing is too much trouble and the charm, wit and friendliness of all the staff is unsurpassed. For any newbies considering whether to stay here or not, just do it. Having stayed at many of the other hotels/resorts in the area, BGBR absolutely checks all your vacation boxes.

A big thank you to all the front desk personnel, Nal, Olive, Kenroy, Lester to name a few and I don't mean to leave anyone out cause you were ALL amazing! And, of course, the lovely Cheryl Gustave.

Absolutely love your happy hours (clearly) and they are a highlight of each day/night. It's such a great chance to meet & mingle with other guests. Big thank you to your bar staff as they work so hard to please all, especially Ali, Elran and Joan! With so many bars/restaurants in walking distance to choose from, it's a testament to them that we rather hang out at the resort more because of how well they take care of the guests! Loved the Wednesday night Manager's cocktail party and all the other entertainment offered. That has definitely increased for the better over last several visits.

Also, big thanks to your Activities Director Richard. He always puts a smile on guests' faces!!

I could go on & on but I think you get the gist of it. Brilliant staff, beautiful property, and perfect location! Doesn't get much better than that!! Thanks again. Kara

We went on 4th January for 2 weeks and it was lovely. The staff are what makes this resort fab, nothing is too much trouble. We spent most of the time on the beach as opposed to the pool area. My one criticism was the hotel needs to invest in better beach lounger. But this did not spoil it and I will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: When booking request a pool or beach view. Garden views are a little non existent.

My wife and I stumbled upon this resort after spending a majority of our vacation in southern St. Lucia. We were looking for a change of pace and Baygarden is the place to do that. Everyone there is extremely friendly and helpful, and the accommodations are excellent. If you're looking to get away and relax and not worry about anything this is the place to be. We will definitely be coming back in the future :-)
