“FANTASTIC WEEK”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

A family of six came to St Lucia for 1 week from May 25th to June 1st. It was a fantastic week. The resort is superb, good location and has all amenities. The staff is very nice. We got champagne for our 29th anniversary and my daughter got hers for her 26th birthday. It really was a blast for her. Thank you Olive, Penny, Lester, Richard, Nadia and all the staff of the resort(security guard, room service lady). You have made our week memorable. We did mingle with the local, each the local cuisine which is very delicious. A lot of provisions such as wax apples, sour sop, sour plums made me remember my country very much. It has been 40 years that I have not eaten those. Alden and Danny of St Lucia Airport Shuttle are the best. Although we had a long trip to the resort and back to the airport, but the drives did not seem long at all with all your quizes about St Lucia. And we think we passed the test, didn't we, Danny? We really enjoyed the trips. And last, words cannot express all our thanks to the Reel Irie crew. We met Bob, captain Franklin, Ram, Eaton who also are awsome! We signed up for a whole day fishing which was a very nice trip. All the food and drink is included for the trip. I highly recommend REEL IRIE for Deep Sea Fishing or Tours . They picked us at the resort, drove us to the marina and here we went. A wonderful day in the seas! We were very fortunate to see whales, dolphins, sea turtle many times during the trip at close range. The crew is VERY NICE and FRIENDLY. They even gave us some fish the next day (wahoo) that we grilled with butther and garlic. Very yummy!!! We also went to eat some conch and fish ( I don't know where) which were very tasty and we have the occasion to meet a lot of locals there. Simple people which have simple life but very friendly. We are not saying you all good bye, we'll come back!!

the beach was amazing and the locals and staff very friendly on the beach. However the restautants in the area very pricy in comparison to thoes else where on the island. The rooms were large and the washrooms amazing. The rooms were also complete with AC which was nice. Sitting out on the balcony at nights very refreshing.

We have stayed in Bay Gardens Beach Resort January 2012 for 10 nights and had a fantastic time. We had booked 2 nights at The Rendezvous so had to leave Bay Gardens but so wish we could have stayed there the entire time as The Rendezvous was a disaster experience but that is a different story.

So this year we decided to rebook but this time for the full 2 weeks and will even bring our friends / family along too.

We were welcomed at Reception with a cocktail which was nice after the long journey from the UK.
The hotel is directly on the beach but right at the end which is nice as cruise ship tourists usually don't walk that far. The pool is nice and was never crowded.

Our room was on the ground floor and facing the back overlooking the gardens to the gym. It was an accessible room and it obviously had the handles near the toilet and walk in shower in the bathroom and a slightly wider door but that didn't disturb us. The benefit is that the entire room was very large. We had a problem with the toilet but this was fixed and Reception was very apologetic.
We did not eat there during our stay as there are just so many other Restaurants near by and for breakfast we liked the luxury of sitting on the beach and this is why we went to Spinnakers most mornings.

Just a little note to the management, it would be nice if the bar stays open a littler longer. In January 2012 it closed quite early ( around 11pm ) but maybe this was due to not many guests in house during that particular time.

I can not wait to be back this year and look forward to our time at Bay Gardens Beach Resort!

Recently, I stayed at Bay Gardens Beach Resort and it was just magnificent. I would recommend staying here. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Rooms are spotless. I will definitely stay at Bay Gardens Resort again. The Hotel is also beautiful.

Room Tip: I would recommend pool view or beach front.

Bay Gardens is certainly not a Luxury resort, but comparing to the general over-cost of St Lucia hotels, it is a real bargain !
For an decent price you have a very net and nice room, a wonderful sea view (I recommend the third floor sea view rooms if you can afford for one - it adds value), a beautiful pool, the most beautiful and clean beach of the island, and all the shops and restaurants of Rodney Harbor just at a walking distance However we got a rental car). Service is not outstanding but is fair.

We have tried several hotels in the island and we will come back to Bay garden Beach, as well as to Ti Kaye.

We chose BGBR because of its great location in Rodney Bay. We were only a 10 min walk from restaurants and shops. The road to town has a sidewalk and we both felt very safe walking to both breakfast and dinner. The resort itself has a great beach, where vendors do take "no" for an answer. We did not chose the all inclusive option due to the location to town but had breakfast in the restaurant which has a beautiful view of the beach and good food. I bought salads for lunch on most days but there are vendors who come around with roti sandwiches daily. Prices in the restaurant were competitive to what we found in town. They also have a happy hour each night. Buy one get one drink free and the views of the sunset are unmatched! The room had some minor maintenance issues (a drawer handle fell off) but the issue was addressed immediately. We were told by a staff member that our room was soon to be renovated. The room next to us was being renovated during our stay. There was an issue with using the laundry facilities but the hotel washed, dried and pressed by clothes for the cost of doing my own laundry. The grounds, the beach and the rooms were clean and well maintained. We did not see the cats as a problem, at most we counted four in the whole resort and they did not venture out to the beach. Overall we had a great stay and I would not hesitate to stay at BGBR again in the future.

Room Tip: We chose a beach front room to see the sunset nightly and wake up to the sound of the ocean each mor...

I was staying off resort [rent each winter] but got to know many of the staff at Bay Garden Beach Resort -good people ! I have gone to the spa
several times for manis/pedis and massages and want to give a big "shout-out" to Nadia, Cathy and others. On the gate and on the beach -big hello to Alvin and Joseph Joe. Would recommend Bay garden beach resort to family and friends.
