I have been a member of Tripadvisor for years and this is the first review I've written (I'm a mooch). So the fact that moochy me was inspired to write my first TA review after staying at the Inn on the Bay should speak volumes about how great this place is.
If you are looking for an all inclusive party-fest, don't stay here. If you are looking for a place to relax and unplug and have access to all sorts of fun adventures on the island, then this is the place for you.
Louise and Normand are beyond amazing - they go out of their way to make your stay special. Normand (who is, as other reviewers mention a total hoot) personally drove me down to the bay every night and arranged taxis for me to visit various other sites on the island.
The rooms are clean and well-maintained. The breakfasts are basic, but always include delicious fresh fruit and home-baked muffins. The pool is great. The view from the inn is worth the trip alone. But the best part of this place is Normand and Louise and how utterly dedicated they are to their guests. I sat down with "Uncle Norm" and talked through things I was interested in and he set up all sorts of excursions that exactly suited my interests.
Seriously I cannot say enough good things about this place - book it now - you'll be glad you did.
