Fodor's Expert Review Bay Gardens Hotel

Castries–Gros Islet Hwy., Rodney Bay, Gros-Islet, Saint Lucia

Modern, colorful, and surrounded by pretty flower gardens, the hotel is a short walk away from 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 8 Croton suites and 13 Junior Executive suites have full kitchens and interconnect to become two-bedroom suites. Spices restaurant serves Caribbean cuisine. Independent travelers and regional businesspeople swear by this cheerful well-run boutique hotel in Rodney Bay. In fact, it's often fully booked. Never fear: Bay Gardens Inn, a 32-room sister property, is next door—and the flagship Bay Gardens Beach Resort is minutes away.

PROS

  • Close to nightspots and shopping
  • Unlimited use of Bay Gardens Beach Club loungers and nonmotorized water sports
  • Complimentary passes to Splash Island Water Park

CONS

  • Not beachfront, although there's a beach shuttle
  • Heavy focus on business travelers
  • On the main road, so noise may be an issue for some rooms
