"Paradise at Capella Marigot Bay, St. Lucia"
When my husband and I arrived at the Capella, Marigot Bay, St. Lucia, we were speechless by the beauty. It truly is paradise. The most gorgeous view of the bay, luxury accomodations, lush vegetation with hibiscus growing everywhere, hummingbirds buzzing about, little canaries wanting to share whatever morsel you are eating, morning doves cooing, friendly, […] helpful and professional staff, delicious food and warm humid temperatures. We stayed for 12 days and were terribly sad to have to leave. We would definitely recommend this hotel and would return again in a heartbeat! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"very nice hotel on beautiful bay"
Although the check in desk was conveniently located off the road, the check out location was a long distance from the road. And, we were not informed that we had to check out at this distant location in the hotel, and at 6 in the morning this was a bit of a problem for us and the staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely hotel in the wonderful Marigot bay"
Marigot bay was our final hotel in our St Lucia trip. The staff were very welcoming, provided us with a room upgrade and were very flexible on check in and check out times. At times we felt reception was a little slow but they were always keen and pleased to accomodate any requests that we had. We will definitely go back to this hotel. It is going through […] a refurbishment in 2014 but we thought that the standard was good as of now. Looking forward to seeing the improvements! Meeting the chef Victor was very nice and Natasha was superb! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Discovery at Marigot Bay"
The hotel was absolutely beautiful. This was only my second trip to the south and the first experience was definitely lacking in customer service. This experience was truly heavenly. Our room was amazing-we did get an unexpected upgrade which was nice. We booked a bay view despite the reviews we read and lucked out with a fantastic bay view and a great […] balcony from which to enjoy. We had 2 very minor issues - our air conditioner was not cooling very well night #1. A quick call to the front desk and they had someone at our door in 15 minutes at 10 pm and it was fixed next am. Our door lock was a bit finicky and it was fixed ASA. The housekeeping was topnotch. The pools and spa facilities, reception, Hurricane Hole and Boudreau room were all very well-maintained. The staff were unbelievable attentive and friendly throughout the hotel and made the stay. We really enjoyed the food. The gym could have used better equipment but was adequate. We were a bit antsyafter 9 days in the Bay-we are not great at lounging. We wished arranged ahead for more days of car rental. Reviews on-line about the driving had made us reluctant,but it wasn't bad-you had to be cautious and drive slowly. The local beach wasn't the best, but we knew that going into it. So we did spend a few days and a few dollars getting rides in water taxis enabling us to see more of the Island. We also expected there would be more of a local market with local shops and eateries but there were not too many closeby. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Tranquil restful spot"
We stayed at Discovery in Jan- Feb 2013 and really enjoyed the hotel. We asked for a quiet room and got it (but then occupancy rates were very low). Its best asset is its fantastic professional, friendly, supportive staff albeit some of the furniture is tired. It’s situated on a mangrove swamp, so pack mozzie repellent (citronella spray provided in […] the rooms) & fly spray (screens on the rooms are ripped in places). We were told the menu at the Hurricane Hole and Boudreau Restaurant changes regularly but we saw no evidence of it doing so. Service at the café was slow – but the food at all these was good and tasty. Excellent swimming pools and gardens. Good choice of eateries nearby if you want to go out. Would we choose this hotel again? Without hesitation! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was very good in a lovely setting but we needed to hire a car get to other parts of the island to do what we wanted to do i.e. bird watching. The hotel has just been sold so it may change under the new owners.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Luxury Hotel in need of upgrade"
The bedrooms are excellent and the food is first class but the location is remote, there is liitle view of the Bay frm the bedrooms and the Beach is a tiny strip of land with very poor facilities.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Superb Caribbean Destination"
Excellent holiday at Discovery at Marigot Bay. We took our 5 month old baby and couldn't have been made more welcome. We went in the off-season so the hotel was very quiet and peaceful, which suited us perfectly. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful and romantic holiday.Genuine Expedia guest review

Hôtel très agréable, très propre, avec un personnel charmant. Cadre magnifique et reposant .Bien situé pour une visite complète de l'ile en voiture.

"Hôtel de qualité, calme et accueillant."
Très satisfait, hormis la plage situé à proximité de l'hôtel, peu fréquentée, non mise en valeur.Genuine Expedia guest review
We loved everything about it- even though there was a couple of things that were disappointing.. don't know if it was because of the renovating and transforming to Capella from Discovery Marigot,but the staff was sometimes a bit asleep so to say. We got wrong bills , ordered things like coffee while eating lunch and it never came.. All in all it didn't […] have that much influence to our holiday,staff was so nice and polite,each and every one of them. Tv in the room was bad,obviously it was reported to staff several times before,but they could not do anything since all the rooms were gonna be fixed one by one. All inclusive in this hotel was great and well recommended,but i would've wish for a better instructions while checking in, from the restaurants as well as all the services the hotel offered...

"Hotel chaleureux bien équipe"
Hotel très agréable. personnel disponible et accueillant le petit déjeuner bien que copieux reste limité en terme de choix. À proximité deux restaurants agréable en bord de plage. Le seul inconvénient est l'absence de plage celle située à une dizaine de minutes de l'hôtel reste très sommaire et insuffisamment équipéeGenuine Expedia guest review

"Beautiful resort with great staff"
We stayed here for 10days for our honeymoon and I'm so happy my husband choose this hotel. Upon arrival we were offered spiced water with rum which was nice. The apprartment we stayed was clean, big and so relaxing to stay in. From our balcony we had the view off the bay and got to see some really nice yatchs. The 4poster bed was so big and comfortable and we always had a good night sleep there. The staff were so friendly and helpful and really made the effort to make sure we were comfortable. Sasha was a delight to speak to. Monty was helpful and friendly and Latoya in the bar was such a sweet person to talk to. The room was cleaned 2 times a day and in the evening around 5pm they would come and put fresh chips with ice cold pitons beers in our room. The layout of the resort is very chilled out and relaxing. There was a supermarket, bank and few shops on site which was helpful. The Rum Cave was a nice place to have an evening drink at. Nice seating and good service. There is a water taxi you can catch to go over to the bay where doolittles and rainforest hideaway restaurant are which were alway available. Would highly recommend this resort.
"Special staff, cool spot"
02/25/15 empre10 New Jersey
the staff is really super helpful and friendly...while we found people to be nice in at lucia generally, they really go the extra mile. Reminds of four season's staff. While a few bugs need working out ( our room key and quality of drinks), overall it was really great. The apt we stayed in was excellent with nice extras ...like thick heavy doors, great bed linens towels etc. the pools are lovely, breakfast very nice, the run cave a nice spot for s light dinner and drinks. Never thought I would like watching yachts but actually quite amusing. The real surprise was how much we like going to the little beach ...had fun taking out kayaks into the bay, really lovely views, good chairs And sort of a crazy vibe with every walk of life present....which was really amusing..and if got too much, back to the peaceful hotel!
"Amazing property, excellent staff"
02/22/15 PrincipessaDC Alexandria, Virginia
We didn't stay at this hotel (rented a studio apartment above Marigot Bay) but visited the bar daily and ate a few meals here. The property and landscaping was gorgeous. The bartenders were the most professional I've experienced on St. Lucia. All the staff we encountered were friendly and accomodating and seemed to really enjoy what they do (which isnot always the case in the islands), even though we were not guests of the hotel. The food was absolutely fresh and delicious. The spa is an oasis and the massage rooms, sauna and jacuzzi are clean and relaxing, if expensive. I would definitely stay here for a week, although longer in Marigot Bay might get a little tedious.
"Great setting and amazing staff"
02/19/15 alistairbudd Berkhamsted, United Kingdom
In summary , Capella have done a great job at the hotels refurbishment . The rooms are very comfortable with good balconies , comfy beds , generous bathrooms and a classic dark wood style . Our ground floor suite overlooked the very well kept gardens and had a large lounge with kitchenette and hot tub . The staff were the friendliest I have come across anywhere in the world . So great for a short break of rest and relaxation , Marigot bay is beautiful . But activities in the immediate area are limited . The hotels main restaurant will open in March which is good news as the local restaurants of which there are about 5 are all pretty average [ see my other reviews ] and a long way short of Gourmet . The hotel is scattered across the steep north side of the bay in a series of attractive buildings . The pool area, restaurant and bar are attractively located overlooking the bay and the wonderful boats that dock there . The pool is good but its surrounding area does not really work . Not enough sun beds or space for them when the hotel has lots of guests .Very good pool bar with great suchi for lunch . Breakfast was good and the setting alone made it special . Make sure you get breakfast included in your room rate , otherwise you could run up a large bill . The bar with excellent cocktails from maestro Andre was fun . The drinks and food in the Rum Cave were very good and the sharing platters menu whilst limited probably the best value on the Bay . But it was the staff who made our stay special . You know when the pool technician [ the wonderful Yan ]chats to you and talks about the companies values , offers help and ideas that it is a bit different . Gardeners who all say hello , great housekeeping staff , whoever hired these folks and did the orientation should be praised . Lastly on the location, the Bay is quite isolated so you need either a hire car or a taxi . Europeans will find the driving ok on the small pot holed roads . If you are from the US and have not driven abroad I would say take a taxi .

My wife and I stayed 3 nights in a one bedroom suite last week. We go on holiday at least 10 times a year and this was the nicest property that we have ever stayed in. The staff were really friendly and the facilities were first class. The pools were brilliant and in the early morning we generally had the large pool to ourselves. The food and the dining facilities were really good and again the staff were always helpful and treated us as if we were special. Clearly there had been a lot of money recently spent on the property and the grounds but the nicest thing about our stay was the staff who were just so nice. We will definitely return but next time it will be for longer.
"Beautifully redone resort"

We rented a lovely three bedroom home from an owner on Homeaway on this resort, entitling us to full use of the beautiful facilities. Everything at the resort was gorgeous and luxurious and the staff were incredibly friendly.
"Perfecting our stay in Marigot Bay!"
02/12/15 Nicola W
We didn’t stay at the Capella resort but in an apartment within the marina complex. We decided to write a review because we were able to use the hotel’s facilities and they were superb. The pools were very clean, large and beautifully run. The main restaurant was not yet opened but we ate a few times in the Rum Cave and had lunch at the top pool on several occasions. The food was of a very good standard – the ceviche divine. What has really made us write this review though is the staff. They all went out of their way to ensure we were treated as well as any guest staying in the resort. They were polite, friendly and after our initial meeting, always greeted us personally. Our flight back to the UK wasn’t leaving the island until late in the evening but we were able to use the resort’s facilities to shower after our day by the pool and get ready for the trip home. We didn’t see the accommodation but if the other resort facilities are anything to go by, I imagine it would be pretty superb. Thank you to everyone at Capella for perfecting our stay in Marigot Bay.

While staying at Villa Makambu we decided to go to Capella's for Tappas. What a fun evening. It is situated in the hills overlooking the Bay and all of the luxury yachts. They are known for their rum bar and tasting. We went for a tour but we were so taken by the fun nature of the server Genevieve we had to come back! If you go you must ask for her – she is one of the best servers I have encountered anywhere! We came back a couple of nights later and not only did she remember us and was genuinely excited to see us again but she remembered our name. We asked for a table by the water and spent about 4 hours eating, drinking and having fun with friends. At the end of our meal she brought out a plate of the best hot apple rum raisin buns I have ever had! Next time we skip dinner and go right to dessert! Make an evening out of sharing drinks and food with friends with exceptional service. We thought the bill would be really expensive but with wine, lots of beer, scotch and sharing menu (dinner) it worked out to $146 US a couple...we had lots of food, lots of drink and an amazing experience.
"BEAUTIFUL NEW RESORT"
02/08/15 jsdmwc massachusetts
We rented a 3 bedroom condo at Capella Marigot Bay. The resort just reopened in December 2014. The staff was very friendly to us and to each other. They all seem happy and take genuine pride in their jobs. We enjoyed sailing a Hobie Cat accross at Spit beach which was included in the activiites. There were 3 Hobie waves and 2 are undergoing repairs but were usable. We found the Rum Cave food quite good. The management was responsive when we asked for a extra set of dishes and silverware so we could all six eat in. All the beds were comfy. The pools and individual hot tubs were a plus. We took a trip to Soufriere by boat and then cabs to the botanical gardens, volcano and mud and mineral baths. The wifi worked everywhere inside the resort and was reliable.
"Working hard to make this world class and almost there"
02/07/15 Pigment1 Cincinnati, Ohio
Stayed at the Capella for a week end of January. Wonderful accommodations, which we had "rented" from the owner rather than through the resort. All amenities of the resort were included and were extremely well kept. Staff were always trying to help, but on a few occasions fell just shy of 5 star service. Once at lunch on the pool terrace, two or our party were served, but the other two lunches were never "entered" so half of us had to wait. They did make it right when we pointed out the error. Our personal assistant also had confirmed a whale watching excursion for Monday, but when we arrived we found out that there was no whale watching excursion on Monday. Fortunately we were able to go later in the week (although we saw nothing in the water) Food at the resort is good, but somewhat high price. Best bet is the café by the marina. Excellent breakfasts, lunches and even dinner. Pool bartender was very adept at making "designer" cocktails based upon what you liked to drink. They were a step above the usual frozen drinks served elsewhere. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, and if you love yachts, this is the place to sit and watch the "big ones" come in. Would I come back? Absolutely!!!!
