“Most Hospitable Couple you will ever meet!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2011

My husband and I just returned from St. Lucia and we stayed for a week at Chezmariealish Hotel in Gros Islet. We agree with all of the previous reviewers that
Louis (Castro) Bernardin and wife made all the difference. They are such warm, kind and extremely hospitable. We cannot say enough to show our appreciation for the service that they offered to us. The little bakery next door was convenient. They made very tasty patties. This hotel is in a great location if you want to experience St. Lucia the
"local" way. One can walk to the Friday night street party. Our host Mr. Bernardin kindly
took us there. If you love barbecued fish, ask for directions from Mr. Bernardin. He might even take you there like he did for us. All in all it was a very memorable vacation for us and we would love to go back and stay at Chezmariealish again.

I stayed here for 5 days and it was absolutely wonderful. The room has a real island feel to it and considering that I come from neighbouring Trinidad I couldn't ask for anything better. There were fresh local fruits in the room, it was squeaky clean and just really comfortable. There was a balcony which allowed me to look out and be wrapped by the soothing Caribbean breeze. The hotel is close to Rodney Bay, walking distance to the Gros Islet Beach and is ideal for taking public transportation to the capital Castries. Mr. Bernadin was a great host and so was his son. So if you are looking for the real St. Lucian experience and a cozy, comfortable home away from home then stay at the Chez Marie Alish.

I stayed from April 5 thru April 12th, 2010 at the Chez Marie Alish Apartments. The accommodations were squeaky clean and felt very cozy and comfortable right away. The room is tastefully decorated and had all the necessities that I was looking for. Mr. Louis ( Castro) went above and beyond to answer all the questions I had before my arrival and was most helpful during my stay. I had a grand time, yes, there is the practice of the steel drum orchestra and enjoyed it sitting on the balcony sipping on a drink watching hummingbirds and little black and bright yellow birds right on the palmtree just a few yards away. I felt very safe with the way it is set up - downstairs door and roomdoor. I can highly recommend this place for those who want to experience the REAL St. Lucia without the hotel buffets that cater to the tourist with the food. I will be back!

These are nice studio apartments on a bus route where local buses pass every few minutes. A reasonable walk to the beach and close to a number of good local restaurants. The bakery right next door had many good local treats and the fruit/veg stand across the street was handy.

There is some noise from the steel band place across the street but we enjoyed it. The owners are very welcoming and helpful. We'd stay again!

Nice studio apt. with little bit too much street noise, but well located to explore Gros Inlet. 5 blocks to the beach, little bakery next door.

We stayed at Chez Marie apartments for 3 weeks. The rooms are lovely and extremely clean and tidy with a really nice view. The location is perfect if you want to experience the 'real' st lucia - 5 minute walk from a beautiful beach and the centre of Gros Islet village. Street party every friday at the end of the road (far enough away not to be bothered by it if you don't want to go though) with local food, music and dancing. Transport is great - bus passes every 5 minutes. The owners make you feel extremely welcome and will do anything to help you out and look out for you. We had a fantastic time staying here and fully recommend this hotel!

Chez Marie is a little treasure. I agree with all the other posters who cite this charming guesthouse for the comfort and charm of its rooms, the lovely gardens and attention to detail, and mostly for its owners Castro and wife Ginette. Yes, you do wake up with the roosters, there is the occasional (enjoyable) sound of steel pans across the street, and the early morning pass of the little mini busses up and down the streets of Gros Islet. But you also get to watch locals buy fresh fruit from the street vendor, see all the little kids on their way to school, walk to the Jump Up, or perhaps take a tour of Cap Estate with Castro. He proved to be so helpful, especially the day of our arrival when we were so tired and hungry, that we took him out to dinner. You won't find anything like it for the price! Not fancy, but efficient, spotless, and cozy. We spent our first few nights at Chez Marie, then relocated to a private villa for our son's wedding. The experience of both, the simple guesthouse set amidst the locals, and the lovely villa with its amenities, made our trip that much more memorable.
