Honeymoon

My husband and I just came back from our honeymoon in st. Lucia. Bay gardens beach resort and spa is fantastic! The staff is friendly and welcoming, and the whole atmosphere of the property is relaxing and enjoyable. The beach is absolutely stunning and there is never a lack of activities going on. I would highly recommend this resort for business or leisure!

Wonderful resort for families
Reviewed 1 day ago

We took our 3 (mostly) grown sons with us to St. Lucia and stayed at Bay Gardens 6 days in a 2 bedroom suite. The trip was almost perfect in every way. St. Lucia was wonderful overall and we were really pleased at Bay gardens. The property was locally owned and, as such, had a feel of authenticity, including St. Lucian families staying there, but with no compromises for our picky American standards. Our room was recently remodeled and was very spacious and very nicely appointed with a functional kitchen, nice bathrooms and (in our case) direct access to the beach. That said, none of the rooms in the place was more than 1 minute from the beach I think.

The beach was nice and kept very clean and orderly. Watersports were super easy to take advantage of and the concierge (Melisha) was super helpful for booking off-site activities, taxis, etc. Entire staff was very nice. The included breakfast was very good.

They had low-key nightly activities (kareoke, live music, etc and 2 happy hours every day. Also some events at the sister property in Rodney Bay with a shuttle service. The shopping and restaurant area of Rodney Bay was suprisingly nice and an easy (and seemingly safe) 15 minute walk. Lots of restaurants to choose from and a modest amount of nightlife, plus several ice cream shops, etc. Our only complaint might be that service in every restaurant at the resort or in town (except KeeBees) had super slow service, so no eating quickly!

We travel a lot, are kind of picky, and would definitely consider going back to Bay Gardens.

Enjoyable honeymoon

Came here for our honeymoon, checking in was easy and was very welcoming. We received the room we booked for our honeymoon and was greeted with a bottle of champagne.
Our room was as described, the air conditioner did not seem to cool the room as well as we wanted, but that may have been because we like our room extra cold. We ended up frying two of our electronics because of not knowing we needed a transformer, but Junior brought us a transformer and was very nice about it.
The pool was good size, and was hardly ever busy also the beach was beautiful with plenty of seating/chairs/umbrellas available for the guest.
Had breakfast every morning and it was very good, and was enough to fill us up plus some.
The hotel is located close to everything and is within walking distance. The security is great and Kirby specifically was very friendly and easy to talk to. Everyone was very sweet and polite.
We met a calico cat, and her kitten that we absolutely fell in love with and wanted to take home with us, if we could have they were very sweet and loving. We miss them, and was heartbreaking to have to leave them!
Was an enjoyable trip and will definitely be back in the future.

Prior to traveling to St Lucia I contacted the hotel in regards to transportation from the airport and they arranged for a pick at $90USD for 2 persons which must be paid to the driver in cash. The property is about 45mins from the airport. The driver was very courteous and gave us a mini tour. Arriving at the resort check in went smoothly and we were upgraded to a newly renovated suite we were given vouchers for various activities at the resort and some were free. We had a daily breakfast plan which was good because they had one of the best Caribbean buffet breakfast that I've had ever. The food was freshly done and in abundance, service was warm, courteous and very professional. If you need to know about the local spots feel free to ask the people working on the property. They are very informative and helpful. Our room was very spacious,clean,modern furniture huge bathroom. The bedroom had two queen beds adequate closet space, bay windows. Living room area was spacious with a veranda overlooking the ocean. Kitchen area had stovetop with oven, microwave, full size refrigerator, washer and dryer combo, plates cups dishes etc. There was also a half bathroom in the suite. Beds were comfortable A\C worked good. The beach was so calm and soothing I never went into the pool but it looked nice. Concierge was a great help Beatrice and Mal(eye)sha were really great booking our tours and setting up our schedules. We also visited the spa they have on the property and used the gift vouchers for a full body massage. There's also another restaurant and bar on the beach Sea Grapes which serves tasty daily dishes. This resort has enough for couples,friends and family. Definitely going to return.

Lovely resort on the outside looking in, but is lacking in some areas internally

Bay Gardens beach resort and spa is a beautiful resort with a beautiful beach. However, there were some service/quality issues. Staff didn’t work as a team and seemed very disorganized. Food offered at main restaurant Hi-Tide was not the best at all and was expensive. Restaurants and bars close very early (restaurants closes 10pm) (bar closes 11pm, which is very early!), and if you happen to order food at 9:50pm you will either be told that the kitchen is closed or your food will come out burned due to the rush to close.

The rooms were ok. The bathrooms were beautiful but has a very awkward shower for the higher level rooms. Shower had no door and water got everywhere. Beds were very uncomfortable. Room furniture was incredibly poor. There are no microwaves in the room but there is a fridge, which makes no sense. Television quality was sooo poor that we couldn’t even make out what we were watching because of the static, so we often had to play with the ariel to get a good picture.

WiFi was extremely poor.

Overall we had an ok time. There is not a whole lot to do in the actual resort, but they partner with other companies who charge ridiculous fees to take tourists off the island to do private tours, RV rides etc. My family of 4 spent $4,000 with room and plane tickets. With $1000 spending money. I wish I would have gone elsewhere, and gotten my money’s worth. I felt the trip was just a waste of money.

For the island to be so big on tourism, I expected more and unfortunately came up short. I guess in order for one to have real fun in a more upscale resort such as sandals etc., you have to have money, as it is an expensive island. Be prepared to spend.
