Independent travelers and regional businesspeople swear by this cheerful, well-run boutique hotel at Rodney Bay Village. In fact, it's often fully booked. Never fear: Bay Gardens Inn, a 33-room sister property, is next door, and the flagship Bay Gardens Beach Resort is minutes away. Modern, colorful, and surrounded by pretty flower gardens, the hotel is a short walk to beautiful Reduit Beach (shuttle service also available), several popular restaurants, and shopping malls. Some rooms surround the serpentine pool and Jacuzzi and are close to the restaurant and lobby; more secluded rooms near the back of the property have easy access to a second pool that's smaller and quieter. The 16 Croton suites have full kitchens and interconnect to become two-bedroom suites. Spices restaurant serves modern Caribbean cuisine.
