Good pool, courteous staff, but lacking in some areas.

We spent three nights here in early November. Our room was beachfront, but a high traffic area with a lot of foliage, so we couldn't see too much of the bay. That's actually a blessing on the days when cruise ships dock at Castries. On those days they bus hundreds of people to the beach on Rodney Bay, and it's difficult even to walk on the shore due to the crowds. So we walked into the shopping area maybe a half mile away on those days.

There actually are some very good a reasonable places to shop or eat not far from the hotel. At Bay Gardens, the breakfast buffet at Hi Tide is mediocre for anything more than a few eggs and some fruit, although the service staff is always very pleasant. I'd also recommend the poolside, if you like to do that sort of thing, but again, it gets crowded when the cruise ships come in because Bay Gardens sells day passes, which means that the hotel's paying guests often can't find a chair. If you can, the pool is very pleasant and well designed, and the poolside food service is quite good.

Rooms are good size, including the bathrooms. You'll have no trouble finding enough closet or drawer space for what you bring. They could use some maintenance improvements, though. In our case, there's a drying rack attached to the balcony that appears to have been broken for quite some time, along with other minor inconveniences.

Some other positives: the grounds are nicely kept, and they clearly take security seriously, so you should be safe there. All in all, it's not paradise, but it's a reasonably enough priced place for a getaway if you don't mind the periodic crowds.

We came to Bay gardens for our Honeymoon, and sadly we’rent very impressed with the hotel.

We had a garden view, and by garden we could see what looked like a old broken shack building, and dogs running around it was an awful view.
I asked if we could be moved just a couple of rooms down so we could at least see the view from an angle, I was told the hotel is full, however we had met the hotel manager earlier that day who advised the hotel was only half full. I went back the next day and was told we could change rooms but it would be $120 extra per night! Which is an absolute rip off.

It’s very expensive, we didn’t go all inclusive, for breakfast we walked down to the shopping centre and picked up much Cheaper food.
The beach is lovely but the amount of times we were asked if we wanted to go on a jet ski was a joke, all we wanted to do was relax and sadly we chose to not sit at the beach after day 1 and sat around the pool instead to be left alone.

Amy who works around the pool area is lovely, she spoke to us each day she always checked we were happy, thank you Amy! Your new bartender who only started this week, he is lovely too he remembered our names every day we saw him.
On the other hand some staff wouldn’t even speak to us, the beach towel hut, you’ll be lucky to even get a “hi” from them.

We did do the boat trip which was very good! I do recommend going on the trip.

Overall we did feel relaxed but very unlikely to return. Very overpriced and we didn’t always feel welcome.
