Heralded as one of the Caribbean’s best kept secrets, Marigot Beach Club & Dive Resort is a relaxing, rainforest-enshrouded retreat on the lush Windward Island of St. Lucia. Accessible only by boat, the resort sits on the edge of a secluded, white-sand beach, so you can spot sunbathing crabs and coral-skimming parrotfish during the day and swooping bats and gliding rays after dark.
Meals at Dolittle’s Restaurant and Bar are comprised of fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Take an afternoon nap by the side of the palm-shaded freshwater pool or in your peaceful, luxurious room or villa with stunning views of Marigot Bay. If up-tempo is more your style, try power-walking through the rainforest, driving through a volcano, gliding through the Caribbean on a 34-ft. power boat or snorkeling through a sea of colorful aquatic life.
Rooms and studios
Breezy ceiling fans and air conditioning keep the stylishly appointed studios and villas cool. Both the Panorama Deluxe rooms and Firefly studios feature their own outside spaces and views of Marigot Bay, so you’ll have a little piece of paradise no matter what. Perched on a hillside overlooking the water, Firefly studios come with a full kitchen, while Panorama Deluxe rooms boast a large balcony.
Dolittle’s Restaurant and Bar offers al fresco dining in a tropical setting, serving up sumptuous dishes with the freshest local ingredients. Try the grilled sea scallops followed by the wild mahi-mahi, washed down with something from the fruity cocktail list.
The Soothing Touch Spa and Wellness Retreat offers a range of therapies, treatments and facilities to leave you feeling thoroughly pampered and rejuvenated. Find peace with transcendental meditation and yoga, relax with a full-body massage or reflexology, and rid your body of toxins in the sauna and steam room.
Despite its wonderfully secluded location, Marigot Beach Club and the island of St. Lucia offer endless opportunities for packing your days full. Shop, dive, snorkel, hike, visit one of the island’s historical sites or simply relax and take in your spectacular tropical surroundings. Visit Rodney Bay and Castries for shopping and partying, see the island by boat or take an open-top ride to discover waterfalls and rainforests.
How to Get There
Marigot Beach Club is a unique experience that we thoroughly enjoyed. We were there in early May and it was not crowded on the island. The resort is not perfect, but it makes up for it with its unique and beautiful location. The resort is a bit tired as others have said, but we had a one bedroom overlooking the dock and swimming area and it had been recently updated so the room was very nice, small but fine for our needs. It had a great balcony a stone's throw away from the water, a great view. The maid service was good, the room was very clean and when we were lacking anything, they were fairly quick to respond. The staff was friendly and helpful. The tired comment is due to several things, the only shower outside to clean off sand was by the pool and looked like it hadn't worked in a long time, the chairs on the beach were great to have, but at least a third of them were in need of replacement or repair, some empty storefronts and offices by the front desk. We enjoyed the swimming area that was roped off, it was nice with no waves, we elected to wear water shoes as there are stones, and that worked fine for us. The restaurant was good, the food was average or above, not excellent. The service was very slow but that is standard in the Caribbean, you just have to learn to accept it. Overall everything was as I expected and while it's not a five star resort, we did not expect it to be, and it was totally fine for our needs and we would return. The shuttle was a fun unique experience as there are no roads to the resort, the ride was only 5 minutes and we never waited more than 5 minutes for it to arrive. It's a quiet, relaxing and beautiful place to spend time!
Rooms are clean, if a bit tired and in need of some renovation. The kitchenette was small, only a small 2 burner induction stove - little room to prep any food let alone cook it. Stayed in room 55 and it had a four-poster bed with no awnings/surrounding. Ac was a god-send as outside temperatures scorching even with the liquid sunshine. Pleasant meals when visited Doolittle's restaurant, staff polite and friendly.
Mislaid my handbag in the bar lounge. Advised not handed in, and if so I need to check with reception . For 8 hours that day, no sign of my handbag. It was eventually brought to my room at 23.00 by the property owner, advising "it was found in the Bar Cellar". Minus my cash (in US$) and GBP sterling. The following day ,Reservation manager advised security footage would be searched to give feedback - Three days later, I had to demand what's going on with the updates. Only to be advised, there are no security camera's in the bar area. Not wanting to cast aspersions - I will leave it there. It did marr my vacation and I advise caution with your personal belongings. Security needs tightening up and staff should wear name tags - for a number of reasons - 1. being you can't give praise/single out good practice if you are unaware who to commend. Also had a couples Spa, which we thoroughly enjoyed. Here again I see plenty of room for improvements - No Names of therapist, Towels were "bleached stained and not large enough for purpose" No - forms to indicate Contra-indications/allergies before treatment.
A dreamy cottage high up overlooking Marigot Bay (the one in the picture) did the magic for us. It’s gorgeous location and great layout, privacy and views collectively created a super vacation retreat. It’s a lazy ride down the funicular or a beautiful downhill stroll past bougainvillea and tropical palms to the famous hotel restaurant. Or, ferry across the bay to get your groceries and cook dinner chez vous. Pool and small beach. Lovely staff.
We stayed here for 2 nights of our trip to St Lucia, and it was incredible. The accommodation is excellent, the views and the people are second to none. The boat over to the Beach and Dive club is excellent. The sunsets here are out of this world. Highly recommend for a tranquil stay.
First of all I would like to say a HUGE thank you to our guide Vanessa. She was very informative, fun and accomadating. We kayaked from the hotel to the roseau river with a few stops and into the mangrove. The views are amazing we got some really beautiful photos of the mangrove and the coast line. When exiting the river we stoped for dip in the sea for about 20 mins, the water was amazing! Then we made our way back and that was my first time kayaking and I loved it. If u choose to do this tour be sure to ask for Vanessa.
