The Inn On The Bay
Ranked #2 of 4 Hotels in Marigot Bay
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 18, 2011

Inn on the Bay is a beautiful, white, 5 room resort overlooking Marigot Bay with a spectacular view. The rooms are spacious, modern, clean, with very good beds. The grounds are well kept and have both front and back patios, perfect for watching the sunset or hanging around the solar heated pool. Each morning there is a generous breakfast, and there are always snacks and drinks. The innkeepers, Normand and Louise, are friendly and very accomodating. Normand is laid-back, funny, and a bit bawdy, and always available for the steep, 5 minute drive into town. From any restaurant or shop, you simply say "please call Normand," and he'll be there to pick you up in minutes. We spent two weeks in the southern Caribbean, and out time at Inn on the Bay was a highlight.

We stayed at Inn on the Bay only four days and wished it would have been a lot more. Normand and Louise are the perfect hosts, who really make you feel welcome. As if you are staying at their home instead of a guesthouse. Inn on the Bay is also the perfect place to meet other people. We had a absolutely great time with Normand and Louise and the other guests.

We have just returned from the Inn On The Bay and what a wonderful experience. Having now been its not hard to see why it is rated so highly.
Rooms/Hotel:- Spacious, comfortable beds, airy with good storage. The pool outside was a welcome relief from the hot sun/and plent of space for all to sunbath. Additional decking on otherside of hotel with wonderful views down the coast.
Service:- I beleive Normand & Louise are the reason it is No.1. Our service didn't start when we arrived it, it was when we were first interested.Before booking if you have any doubts or questions about the place location etc contact Normand. Its not No.1 on TA because its on the edge of Golden sands, it has Spa treatments, wonderful restuarants onsite, it's because you feel important as soon as you arrive, you are entertained by hosts who are caring, funny and make you feel part of an extended family.They are always on hand to arrange trips, sort out issues etc.........nothing ever a problem. Also plenty arranged for breakfasts, including Louise's baked treats, something different eachday.
Location :- Stunning. Marigot Bay is described as one of the best locations in the Carribean and its true. From high on the Bayside you have a wonderful view of Marigot Bay. Marigot Bay is small but has everything you need. A bank, small supermarket, small boutique area for gifts etc............
Restaurants :- You cant go wrong with any of them. For the best head to the Rainforest Hideaway restaurant, slightly more expensive but wonderful location, very romantic, and great food with extras. All the others on Marigot also have excellent service and food, we tried the Hurricane Hole, Chateau Mygo, Baguette Shop and Boudreau.
St Lucia:- It is a very lush beautiful Island. For a relaxing switch off holiday head to The Inn On The Bay. Its also a very good location for exploring.
So a big thanks go to Normand and Louise for making it such a wonderful experience despite the rain (the only thing Normand couldn't sort out for us :-) !!

My husband and I spent a week at the Inn on the Bay and loved our time there. It is right on gorgeous Marigot Bay with views along the coast to the north and south, and is within short driving distance of many island attractions. We recommend renting a car (the driving isn’t bad, although we drove very slowly) because there is so much to see. At our slow pace Anse la Raye with the Friday fish fry is 20 minutes away, the rum distillery is 10 minutes away (skip the tour, go for the tasting), Soufriere and area attractions (volcano, botanical gardens, diving/snorkeling, etc) are about an hour away, Pitons 90 minutes, Castries 30 minutes, Pigeon Island 45 minutes. If you want a beautiful souvenir, ask about the woodcarvings at the Eudovic Studio just down the road.
Normand and Louise are fantastic hosts – they spend most of their time during the day with their guests and you can tell they really enjoy what they do – they treated all of us like personal friends. It was a little rainy our last two days, so it was perfect to have the pool and lounge chairs literally steps outside our room. If it started to rain, we ducked inside to wait it out and were back out seconds after it stopped. If you want privacy or shade there are beautiful decks on the back of the house to enjoy also. This is a wonderful place to stay and we highly recommend it!

Normand & Louise were perfect hosts; Louise prepared a wonderful continental breakfast each morning. Normand booked excursions for us & gave us hints for restaurants. Marigot Bay was a bit of paradise!! My husband & I would recommend Inn on the Bay to anyone wanting beautiful scenery, gracious hosts & fun side trips. In short -- A perfect tropical vacation!!

The Inn at Marigot Bay is an excellent place to stay when visiting St Lucia. Normand and Louise where incredible hosts and spend great attention to detail. They really go the extra mile to make guests feel right at home from transportation to elegant complimentary breakfast muffins and fruit (homemade!). The view from The Inn is incredible and by far one of the best on the island. If you are looking for an amazing experience in St. Lucia, the Inn at Marigot Bay is the only place to consider!

Normand & Louise are fantastic hosts/owners!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Our room was simple/elegant. We loved hearing the music from the beach, lulling us to sleep at night.
