How to Get There
We arrived with 8 couples and bound for a good time. Since we were such a large party, all meals took about two hours start to finish. Entertainment was lacking for sure and glad we came with our own music and speakers,even taking requests from other vacationers. The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating especially Simon, Teddy and Faith as for other staff members, we couldn’t get their attention without hollering. They were definitely on “island time” and had no desire to wait in you. For an all inclusive, food options were not very robust and ended up eating the same meals more than once. The resort also ran out of some of the cocktails on our first day.
We had a lot of fun at Bay Gardens Beach Resort. We decided to upgrade to a beachfront room which gave us a nice view. We were also very close to the beach. We opted not to get the all-inclusive, but did have a few meals at the hotel. They had a good selection and the food was good. I’m vegetarian and didn’t have any issues finding something good to eat. Our room had a refrigerator, so we picked up some snacks and drinks in town. It’s a very easy walk to restaurants and shops.
The beach was quiet other than Thursday when the cruise shippers came in, it was packed that day. Staying at the hotel gets you access to the inflatable water park. We tried it one day, but it is tough (for us out of shape folks)!
The water sports guys are great! We took the hobie cat one day (no additional charge) and did a private boat tour another day. The boat tour was $450, and we are so glad we did it! We had to delay a few days due to weather, but once we had a clear day, they took us out on an all day boat trip. We went all the way south to Sugar Beach for some snorkeling. We then headed back north, stopping in Marigot Bay for lunch. Then, we stopped for some cliff jumping on the way back. We had an amazing time with Smiley and Dylan! The stops were completely dictated by us. Can’t wait to do it again!
My brother, sister-in-law, cousin two friends and myself all stayed at Bay Garden Marina Haven from June 7/11 2019 we visited for the football tournament our stay was a very welcoming experience from the time we arrived with the rum punch drinks and all the friendly staff who we called a lot of time before our arrival we visited the other properties and water park they also help us to get a rented vehicle we had no regrets and breakfast was yummy and tasty sure to visit again
Our room was located on the first floor adjacent to the pool and Hi Tides restaurant/bar. It was off season, May 18 to 25, 2019. It was great! The resort provided "robes" for us. the resort and pool were very clean. Free wi-fi!
Cons: They charge us $5 us to fill our rafts (we have been traveling for 20 years and noone or no resort has ever charged us). There were NO gas grills for non all inclusive guests to use, the A/C in bedroom was horrible/warm! No a/c in bathrooms! No coffee filters, yet did provide creamer.
Not the resorts issue but the signage to the resort was HORRIBLE!
as with the rest of the island!
A trip for pleasure with friends in a hotel on the beach on an island should be without any issues such as air conditioning in your room not working properly, can’t find fan switches, telephone not working,etc. Could spoil a much needed vacation and easily sway one’s desire to return to the property which is in a great location on the beach.
