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
Great location to stay in Marigot Bay, lovely venue and very friendly team led by Lorne. Spent a week in idyllic surroundings. Definitely recommend for relaxing time and fun in the sun with friends and family.
What a great place to stay. My wife and I spent 10 days here as a "special birthday" treat, and we weren't disappointed. A tremendous location and wonderful staff. Nothing was too much trouble and like all the island everyone was friendly.
The accommodation was spotlessly clean and was kept that way throughout our stay. The only disappointment was the state of the bathroom as it was in need of renovation but again, was clean and very useable. We did see other rooms during our stay and they had been updated. If we had one of those rooms we would have given a 5 star rating.
The reception staff couldn't do more for us and organised a few day trips, following their suggestions. We found the prices the same as if we had booked them direct, so no down side. We ate at the hotel restaurant, "Doolittles" most of the time but there are lots of other places to eat. The bar also does amazing cocktails, but beware of having too many "Banana Milkshakes", as we found out.
The beach and swimming area were well maintained and clean and we didn't get bothered by local beach traders. Free beach towels was a bonus and much appreciated. The free ferry to and from the other side was a big bonus. It was only a 5 minute trip but it made the whole thing just a little bit more special.
A lovely location, great hotel and really friendly staff. We would have no hesitation to stay here again if we return to St. Lucia. A big thanks you to everyone who made our holiday a success.
Location: In Marigot Bay; a small isolated private beach with limited facility; a waterfront restaurant for beautiful sunset views. Since the hotel can only be reached from water, a frequent and on-call ferry is available, free for the customer staying at hotel.
Room: small (we stayed at Beach front building, 2nd floor, booked through Orbitz). The patio was large and had a nice bay view, but it had side doors that could be opened from the neighboring units.
Service: We liked the front-desk ladies the most: Chelsea, Naija, and Rhonda.
The major problem was mosquito! The hotel provided service to treat the room. They did twice for us, and then left the bottle to us for DIY during the rest of the week. But the spray was quite strong and there was no screen door to the patio so we ended up sleeping in the strong smell. Because of that, both of us had respiratory infections during the last two days. The maid service was tardy and clean towels were scarce.
Suggestion to the hotel management: regular pest control in the surrounding area. Install screen door to the patio.
Recommendation to the hotel guests: Bring non-toxic mosquito repellent
This was our second visit to Saint Lucia. The first time we dropped in to the cove at Marigot Bay but did not stay. It is a wonderfully picturesque cove and therefore decided to spend some time here on this visit.
We arrived slightly earlier than check in time and the room was made available to us immediately which was great. Sadly, our friends could not settle into their room until late afternoon as the guests prior to them refused to check out on time and management did not address this. We were offered a drink on arrival, very nice but actually most of us preferred to simply have a water which reception could not provide - not optimal for a 4* hotel.
Our room was lovely with a canopy bed, a small kitchenette, fridge and a large balcony overlooking the cove and beach thus a pleasant welcome. Sadly, it all went a bit downhill from there on. BTW the mattress on the bed was in need of replacement as springs had gone and the bed frame was very squeaky with minimal movement.
We met our friends at reception for cocktails. Most of the tables had not been cleared of glasses so we had to do it ourselves with no sign of service any time soon. Went to the bar to order our own drinks in the end. If they were busy that is one thing but this was not the case and indeed there were staff just loitering around not paying any attention to guests. Fortunately, it was happy hour as drinks were over priced as well.
Decided to get a table for dinner - plenty of options as not at capacity. Our order was taken promptly however drinks did not arrive until half an hour later. When the starters arrived the cervices was served on a hot plate and the hot starter was on a cold plate - go figure! Our main courses arrived 2.5 hours after ordering. When we asked where our meals were the response was it's on the way. After following up for a third time they eventually arrived. The waitress was pleasant enough however the service was appalling, The servings were very small for the price and the meals were not cooked to our liking. The tuna was so over cooked it may as well have been canned and was by no means rare. We ate at Chateau Mygo House of Seafood the next night and both the food and service was excellent - the lion fish was delicious.
In the morning at breakfast it was no better. All the bain maries were empty of hot food. When the next batch was available 15 minutes later there were about 10 people waiting and those last in line had to wait another 15 minutes. Again, there were plenty of staff hanging around doing very little.
We also asked about a la carte breakfast and told it was not available (despite the hotel brochures saying differently). The next day a menu was brought over to choose a la carte. The staff do not appear to be managed and quite frankly do not know what they are expected to do or how to provide 4* service to guests.
This club is going downhill fast with service akin to 2* but of course at 4* plus prices. Management need to seriously lift their game. I do not recommend staying here which is a real shame as it is a beautiful location. We went on to Stonefield Estate thereafter were the service was impeccable. Do yourself a favour and give Marigot Beach Club a miss.
We are world travellers and always look for the best location - in this case - the best on the island.
Marigot Bay is perfect - out of the craziness of Rodney Bay - a perfect spot to stay and tour the island.
We stayed 6 nights - we had a Panorama room - fabulous view - yes it is up many stairs but the view is worth it and if you go via the bar the slope is fine.
This is not new and modern - it is spacious - clean - a comfortable bed - endless hot water - and any request we had was answered immediately. Loved sitting on the balcony at sunset watching the yachts come into harbour.
We ate dinner every night but one during our stay - we tried another across the bay and the service did not come close to Doolittles - the waterside restaurant. Kingsley looked after us and was wonderful - Silas at the bar remembered us each evening - it was fun and comfortable - so much better than a large establishment.
You take the Doolittles water taxi to access the hotel - parking is free marinaside - it is always available and the drivers are great.
Stay, explore the island, enjoy.
