An absolutely fantastic villa an an amazing view looking down on the bay.
Having had an incredible week on the island and having seen it from north to south, Marigot Bay has to be one of the most picturesque spots in St Lucia, and the pool in the Villa looks right down on to it. The rooms are clean, comfortable and with all the mod-cons you're likely to need. We'd read some reviews saying that it was a tough walk up from the village to the villa - we are both in our late twenties, we're active, and getting up and down the hill was not a problem. It probably took us 10 minutes each way. If you have a car, there is also space to park at the top and the bottom.
Marigot Bay is situated in between the resorts in the north and the jungle, mountains & Pitons in the south. Unless you're very happy chilling by the pool for more than 3 days, we'd recommend you have access to a car. There are some amazing things to see and explore and we probably spent around 2 days near Soufriere. Highlights were some waterfalls, Anse Chastanet beach (and the one just round the bay), dessert at Hotel Chocolat, sun set drinks at Ladera (opposite Hotel Chocolat), the Soufriere botanical gardens, the L'Anse La Raye Friday night fish fry and the Marigot Bay rum distillery. It will probably take you an hour to drive to Sourfriere - it's the best driving road I've ever seen, though watch out for the pot holes. Also, the car is useful to go over the hill to the cheaper supermarket rather than using the very expensive harbour shop.
Finally, it would be criminal not to mention the wonderful villa manager, Cyrus. We'd read great reviews on Trip Advisor about the property and also Cyrus, but we had not expected him to be as warm-welcoming and as helpful as he was - what a star! Despite some confusion when we arrived at the airport (he had come to collect us the day before hand - the taxi drivers at the airport were very helpful), he helped us with our first food shop, he hired a car for us, he laid-on a BBQ for us and another 2 couples one evening, and arranged for us to hire a catamaran for a day. Our holiday would have been as amazing if he were not there to help, but Cyrus topped it off and made it extra special!
