"Why Stay Anywhere Else?"
BGBR is right on the beach and has a beautiful pool as well. The staff is friendly and the grounds are immaculate. The location is excellent and as you can walk to plenty of restaurants, a brand new shopping mall and even the island's only casino, you don't need a car once you get there. Both our bedroom and bathroom were both very spacious and there […] was even an umbrella in the closet just in case (we didn't need it). BGBR was exactly what I wanted for our first trip to St. Lucia. I did drive around the island but didn't see any hotel that I liked better, so I won't bother looking for another hotel for our next trip to St. Lucia. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The staff at Bay Garden were some of the nicest people. The front desk staff was very helpful in making my trip to St. Lucia enjoyable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quick get a way"
This hotel was perfect for our needs. We wanted to stay in a nice clean resort with a great beach and near restaurants and shopping. Perfect for three girls on a get a way.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very impressed and will go back, the service can't be beat."
Didn't know what to expect since I've never been to St. Lucia, did not know anyonre who had been there. I read the reviews from other hotels, and was not too impressed. I needed one that actually wasbeach front on level ground, I and my 83 year old mother are both handicaped. Most hotels say they're on the beach however you take a bus or be driven down […] cliffs to get there. Their pictures make their beaches look like they are right in front on level ground, not the case with Bay Gardens Beach Resort, it's trulely on the beach. The room very clean, they kept it that way.Never had to asked for anything. Food at their 2 resturants on site can not be beat for the price & quality, which here in Maryland I could never get such a good meal (fresh, cooked to order, and willing to do anything you wish). The price seems high however, the menues are in EC's currency not US $, so don't be as shocked as I was when you receive the bill, the bill also shows US $ amount, then you will laugh, and see that it was extremely well priced for the quaility. However, if staying in the Castries area you definently have to use Castries airport, it's2 hrs from the south side airport, 27 miles away, through hills&curves like you have never experienced before. The only bad part American Airlines which I bought through Expedia, they changed my departing flight 2 weeks before my trip, and I lost a full day on the island, and had to spend it waiting 8 hours in San Juan airport, and AA did not care.

This is most likely one of the best designed and kept, particularly in the front-office & housekeeping services. I was there on business; but would like to return for total relaxation.Genuine Expedia guest review
"awesome location, beautiful beach and friendly people!"
This was an incredible trip! The Bay Gardens Beach Resort is on a beautiful beach. The grounds are pretty but small enough to feel intimate. The rooms are good, large bathroom. It's close enough to walk into town (10-15 mins) for many dining options. (Big Chef was one of our favorites). The people at the hotel go out of their way to be friendly at this […] hotel, amazing. happy hour every night at 5:30. This one one of the most relaxing trips I have ever been on and woud definitely recommend Bay Gardens Beach Resort! I know I will go back again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"No stress St. Lucia"
Bay Gardens Beach Resort is an upscale, yet affordable fantastic getaway. No elevators for rooms. Ask for 1st floor if it makes a difference. One step up. Room, pool, restaurant, beach are two minute walk from each other. Great food and not expensive. Order off the menu if you don't see it. Service is whatever you need. 1/1/12 brings optional all-inclusive […] w/liquor ($110/day). Great restaurants close by(Rodney Bay) are worth the effort.(Big Chef, The Edge, Buzz, Charthouse) Find a taxi to take you to the mud baths and tour the island. Hotel prices are higher. Beach location is APLUS. This one is a keeper. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect for folks like us!"
St. Lucia is the most beautiful island this side of Hawaii. We traveled there first for my work (three days in Castries), then three days of pure vacation at the Bay Gardens Beach Resort. It's on the northern tip of the island, so rather far (1.5 hours) and expensive ($80 or more taxi) from the main airport Hewanorra, which is at the southern tip; much […] closer to Vigie (George Charles) airport in Castries, but which accommodates only small planes. We are not folks who stay at the extremely pricey, all-inclusive hotels. The Bay Gardens was a terrific bargain (our stay in September was a little out of season), with immaculate rooms, wonderful beach right outside the door, a nice pool (though the ocean was so inviting, we never went into it). The restaurant was quite good, and reasonably priced. If you want to venture down the road, within walking distance there are a fair number of other restaurants and hotels; we never bothered - we ate at the Bay Gardens the three nights we were there. Especially if you don't have a car, the ability to walk to the village (15 minutes) is great, since you will find a large, modern supermarket not to mention other restaurants. Did I mention that the staff was uniformly friendly and helpful? They certainly were. My wife and I would certainly return, though air and land time will consumer the better part of the day.

Except for the cats and the bathroom sink not draining this is a good hotel. The staff is friendly and the hotel is very clean. Great location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"can't wait to go back"
hotel has an amazing beach (the softest sand on the island) with amazing views, including perfect sunsets every night. it's a bit far from the airport (~2 hours up the eastern coast) but it's walking distance from a number of great restaurants and shopping malls. they offer water sports and tours directly from the beachfront which is convenient as […] well.

"Will return ASAP!!!!"
If you're not used to the sun , start with an all round sunblock of 30 t0 50!!!! The beach was the cleanest in all of Rodney Bay,Excellent food, wonderful service and "No" the venders don't bother you in the off season, Rained for ten minutes 2 xa day. everything was in walking distance. The hotel caters to everyone from toddlers to seniors and singles. […] We're going back ASAP!!!!The staff was exceptional!!!!Happy hour every day, parties 3-4 times a week. If you don't see what you want on the menu, check with the chef and he'll do you a favor!!Don't order the morning buffet as it's 3 times the cost of anything on the breakfast menu. The Bay Gardens Beach Resort and Spa has better rooms in the newer buildings. They kept their beach spotless and supplied chairs and unbrellas. The other 3-4 hotels ( Rex, Sandals,etc) had the trashiest beaches and looked like the outside facing the bay hadn't been maintained in years. Lots to do and you never want to leave the beach. The marketplace is very safe and we all separated once we got there by local bus We met up later and compared purshases and prices. everyone is so sweet there. The school system insists they concentrate on tourism and what they can do to make their island the best..and it shows!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Lovely beach and setting"
Position couldnt be better, lovely beach overlooking Pigeon Island. Small hotel - less than 100 rooms - meant beach and facilities were never crowded. Entertainment finished before 10pm so minimal disturbance. Excellent value bar/restaurant just along the beach open all day. If you want to see the Pitons/volcano/botanical gardens probably better to […] take a guided trip rather than drive yourself. Only downside is long trip (1hr 40) to and from airport.

"Hotel in great location"
This hotel was right on the beach, had a good pool and was only 10 minutes walk into the centre where all the shops were. The reception staff were very pleasant and helpful. We complained twice that our shower was hardly ever even warm and most times it only trickled. They smiled sympathetically and shrugged, it seems that there was nothing to be done. […] They said they'd get the maintenance man to take a look but, if this was done, it made no difference. We only had one breakfast and one dinner in the restaurant but thereafter we found better restaurants close by that provided better food much cheaper. We enjoyed our stay and the hotel was fine, but not great. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good Hotel, Great location"
We booked into Bay Gardens Beach Resort for the Rodney Bay part of our St. Lucia holiday. We loved the location at the end of Reduit Beach, I would say it is the best hotel on the beach itself. The service is quite "soon come" and there were very few activities if that is what you are looking for. Pool is great, acces to the beach is great.Overall would […] recommend Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Fantastic location and price but awful beds"
Hotel is in an excellent location in Rodney Bay. Rooms sizes are good but the room we stayed in (414) had the most uncomfortable beds we'd ever slept in. Every day I woke with back ache! There were a few other niggles that management should really sort out - cracked sink, no toothbrush mug, a safe that had to be fixed twice and no thermostat on the […] shower (so you are suddenly blasted with cold water mid-shower). Otherwise it was a good place for the price. The hotel has a beach bar and a restaurant. The beach bar (High Tide) is good for sun downers but the lunch I had one day (chicken Caesar salad) wasn't great. Trios, the on site restaurant, should be avoided at all cost. It is expensive, has no atmosphere and the food was horrible. The tables over look a car park or the road (a bit of a shame for a beach resort hotel) and the monkfish risotto was utterly dreadful (risotto was dry and monkfish was watery) and the BBQ ribs were smothered in BBQ sauce not cooked on a BBQ . All the tourist restaurants in the area are expensive but the best we ate at was Jacques which is over the road (on left) from this hotel (lovely waterfront location). Otherwise a very cheap BBQ dinner with the locals at the Hairy Clam (follow signs for Pizza Pizza) is highly recommended. All in all a great holiday at a fabulous beach - just wish the beds were more comfortable. Tip - taxis and trips are very expensive. If you don't have transfers included think about booking a car.

Response by Bay Gardens Beach Resort It is very unfortunate to hear that you experienced such discomfort during your stay. We wish that we could have gotten the opportunity to fix this issue during your stay to stop it from putting a damper on your experience. We're also sorry to hear that your experience at our restaurants; they are held to a high standard and this is definitely not the norm. We are still thankful, however, that your stay was still worthy of 4 stars.

Fantastic location, friendly staff, good food and price.Genuine Expedia guest review
We spent 4 very enjoyable nights at the hotel which is ideally situated right on the beach. We had a beach front room and almost fell out of the door onto the beach and the sea. There was a designated swimming area for the hotel to protect against marauding jet skis and boats which was good. The hotel staff were very friendly and welcoming, hotel had […] good facilities with a large pool, poolside bar and restaurant, all very well staffed and in good condition. We would definitely stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada"
There was 4 of us on our trip. There was a mix up with our rooms, but the hotel staff was great in giving us options for new rooms. The hotel was full from what we were told, but you would never know it, it was quite quiet. It was mostly couples and families. We choose to have a kitchnette and pick up our own groceries up the road from the 2 grocery […] stores. There was great restaurants to choose from along Rodney Bay. This hotel is right on the beach with access to watersports. We did choose to eat at Trios at the hotel, this was by far the restaurant we enjoyed least. It was expensive, with small portions and the service was VERY slow. We also choose to take the ferry over to Martinique, this is not for everyone. It was $150 US per person and about a 2 hour catamaran ride. It was a beautiful day but once you were out on the open water it was so rough that everyone was getting sick all the way there and back. If we had known that we may not have choosen to do that activity. Overall we quite enjoyed our stay, St.Lucia was expensive, the hotel was great, we got a great deal on it and we would recommend it to anyone that was going. It is located at the end of Rodney Bay and this is a tourist area. If you are looking for more of a local experience you may want to stay off the beaten track. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Hotel was in a good location. Right by the beach, and close to bars, restaurants and town centre. Staff were very accommodating, friendly, efficient and helpful. Nothing was too much.

"Great place to stay."
Great hotel, well located with excellent beach. Service from staff was pleasant and efficient throughout our stay. Very few negatives - only issue was the absence of adequate areas of shade around the pool and enough sun loungers. Not helped by the towels down at dawn syndrome, despite the signs asking guests to refrain from doing this! However, the […] close proximety of the beach made this less of an issue for us... Would definately go back again in the future, great holiday. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

we had a great holiday at the Bay Gardens Beach Resort, the room was beutiful as was the view from our beach view balcony. Trios restaurant was excellent with first class service and the meals were prepared by a gem of a chef whose name is Beverly Anne. The staff at the resort were most helpful and really friendly . The whole experience including Expedia […] bookings was great, so much so that we will be going back there very soon.

"Bay Gardens Beach Resort - a hotel to relax"
It is a very beautiful hotel at the beach. The rooms / suites are located in a number of small, 3-story buildings. Our beachfront room was very spacious with a balcony and a beautiful view of the bay and the beach (ground floor has garden view). Very friendly and helpful frontdesk that arranged an island tour with a known taxi driver. The location of […] the hotel at the end of a headland is somewhat distant from the center of the village but there is an hourly shuttle service to two related hotels located in/near the center. Good restaurant facilities alongside/at the beach and the pool with entertainment at night. The onsite a la carte restaurant is worth a recommendation. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff at the Bay Gardens Beach Resort were outstanding! They went above and beyond to ensure all our needs were met and that we were familiar with the resort and the Island. I loved that there were electrical outlets in the room that accommodated both European and North American guests. Umbrellas were also provided tough not needed! Also the resort […] was by far one of the best location wise. Not only did it have it's own beach, but it was close to restaurants and the city center. Also it was only a short walk to catch the city bus into Castries. The only downside was the wifi was not available in the rooms. One had to be closer to the reception or pool areas to get a signal. Then again, this was probably a good thing! Overall, I would definitely stay here again! A perfect getaway location! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Great property with a wonderful helpful staff. Food service was a little slow but the quality was first rate. Fun bar staff and great service on the beach. Shuttle service to shopping center was an added bonus.
"An idyllic place to honeymoon"
08/17/14 Thomas Q London, England, United Kingdom
We spent a week drinking cocktails by the pool, drinking cocktails on the beach, at sunset etc. The room was lovely - spacious, clean, amazing air-con, just about good enough WiFi and a pleasant balcony. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. As long as you're aware that nothing happens in a hurry in St Lucia, you won't mind that it can take an age for a drink or bill to arrive - they'll get there eventually! If you're organising airport transfers or planning a day out to the Pitons (very dramatic) and volcano, I'd recommend Janus and the guys at www.stluciaairportshuttle.com who were super responsive over email, great chatty and friendly drivers and reasonably priced (as far as I can tell). All the restaurants within walking distance of the hotel were great.

Wonderful beach area, well kept resort, rooms were clean. We had a washer dryer in our room...convenient, but no one knew how to run it, so we just put it in, and 3 hours later, clean dry clothes! We walked to grocery store and saved money by cooking in room. Stove could use an update though. I would return in a heartbeat.
"Excellent Hotel for Families"

This hotel is excellent for families. The kids love the pool and the watersports activities. The location being right on the beach and at the same time in Rodney Bay area made it even more fantastic. The staff members are great. Love the front desk team. They are the best! Will be back for sure.

This has to be one of the best resorts I've visited! The staff members are extremely friendly and welcoming. This resort provide you with a place to completely relax and while enjoying the beautiful scenery. The location is perfect! I Will definitely be coming back soon!
"best value for your money when in St lucia"
08/12/14 toshiville Stratford, Connecticut
My wife and i stayed at the Bay Gardens Hotel Beach Resort and really enjoyed our stay. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Staff was very friendly. The property is well kept. The room had a fridge, stove and microwave which we hardly use since we did not have time to prepare food. We had dinner once at the hotel. The buffet was decent though one would expect a wider variety of food. The buffet breakfast did have a wider selection. You don't have to eat at the hotel. You can get better food outside the hotel. There are many restaurants within 5 minute walking distance or if you really want to sample local food you can buy good from the vending trucks along the Gros Islet highway which is not far from the hotel.
"Is one of the best place to stay in St Lucia"

Have to say one of the best place I stayed in and also the people and friendly and nice the food is great the rum punch is really good beach is unbelievable and best part of staying there is you could sitting at the bar watching the sun sets while having Piton beer
"I'll be back!"
08/12/14 Hmelton44 Las Vegas, Nevada
The Resort was very nice. Cheryl, the Assistant Hotel Mgr and her staff brought their "A" game. My wife and I were in a suite overlooking the Carribean Sea. Irene, Marvin, Isasha, and Simon took care of all our restaurant and bar needs. Anthony was the "MAN". He prepared a specially requested breakfast for me everyday. I'm from Las Vegas and I know exceptional service. Their service team could rival the first teams in Las Vegas. I was very impressed with the property and staff.

We had a wonderful stay at Bay Gardens Beach resort! Staff was beyond nice, everyone from the front desk, to maintenance, the chefs in the kitchen, the servers in the restaurant & the bartenders... they were all so friendly & accommodating. Our room was perfectly located on the beach front, close to the pool & restaurant, and it was well-kept.
08/11/14 Jah51 Diego Martin, Trinidad
Bay Gardens Beach Resort is THE BEST! We had a BLAST! We stayed in the one bedroom pool view suite (610)...had the best of both worlds, pool and sea view. Service was excellent. The girls at the front desk were very helpful. Mickey, Kerry and Samantha at the Hi tide Restaurant were sooooo friendly. Thank you very much Kennith, Semon of the vacation club..Beatrice at the Tour desk..... Wonderful, wonderful, friendly people. Two suggestions already made: you all need to do something with the tiles in the corridor and around the pool 'slippery when wet' Saw an elderly lady fall by the pool. Provide folding drying racks for the wet swim suits and beach towels. Hanging them on the balcony takes away the beauty of the place. One thing though, and this has nothing to do with the Resort but, after leaving such a friendly and comfortable atmosphere we found that the staff at the airport (George Charles) were so SOUR. Not even a smile or a "how are you doing today" Also the accommodations there was the 'pits'. It was hot, had to stand up while waiting for my flight to come in. Bay Gardens, please pass this onto the Tourist Board or whomever. Nevertheless, I'll be back..!
