After shopping around a bit, we realised the car hire places were all pretty much the same in terms of price so for ease we got one from the hotel. After sorting all the paperwork, some guy then drove us to the police station so Mick could get his permit. The police didn't really seem that thorough and so after only a couple of mins he came back …
... at the "drive-in volcano" where you can watch the earth bubble and steam with the hot muddy sulfur substance reminding you of the natural destruction of years past that result in these fantastic lands. We ended the day at the mud baths, a natural sanctuary where the sulfuric mud still flows downhill creating a pool in which you can soak. We each covered ourselves in the mud for a body wrap and then jumped back in the pool famous for its natural health benefits. What ...
... there was a museum, but I think it was closed when I was there.
Next, I headed to Rodney Bay Marina, which was (as expected) full of boats. There are a few cute little restaurants overlooking the water or the pier area, and so I had lunch at Cafe Ole, which is one of them. The juice had good flavor, but could have been less gritty and the sandwich I got there really hit the spot.

The two barmen did a bottle juggling routine, as in the movie Cocktail, only dropped a few. The highlight was setting up 5 glasses at different heights, and pouring into them from 5 stacked cocktail shakers, without spilling a drop. Unfortunately we didn’t take our camera with us.
This activity destroyed the rest of the afternoon, but we managed to get into our good gear and saw most of the 7 PM Variety Show with ...

We arrived at Jalousie at 3pm to blue sky and sunshine, and enjoyed a swim and snorkel whilst waiting for Mel and Christian to arrive.Jalousie is certainly a very picturesque bay, nestled between the towering Pitons. In fact it forms part of a marine conservation area which prohibits fishing and anchoring in ...

It was located in a great location, the rooms were spacious and clean, and the pools were nice. However, customer service was lacking a little, and they seemed to be almost mad at us for not booking any tours or taxis through the hotel. There was one woman in particular that actually made us miss a tour that we had planned. If you don't mind being in large tour groups, though, Bay Gardens Hotel was a great place to stay!

Historical Traveler Reviews Bay Gardens Hotel Gros Islet
We arrived in St. Lucia and stayed at the Bay Gardens Hotel on the recommendation of some friends in Barbados. We were not disappointed.
Hello there, I had another fun trip to St.Lucia, which is located in the eastern caribbean and is similar to Barbados in a few ways.The flights were on time and the car rental agents at the airports were very good.The signs are okay but you would still get lost.We stayed at Bay Gardens Hotel and that was lovely,rates are okay.We had pizza at the wood oven place down the road the friday night it was great.We venture to the north point to see a cellar bar it was quite an adventure.The saturday we had brunch and took ourselves to around the island through Castries and to La soufere village where we could see the Pitons from many viewing areas.At one time we though that would never be able to return it took us hours around the island but it was worth it. We were sorry that we did not have more time to do some climbing it would have been a thrill.
First, this is not my first experience with Caribbean accomodations - I have stayed in diffent hotels/inns in Jamaica, Grand Cayman, St. Thomas, St. Croix, Bahamas, Barbados etc. This stay was for 2 weeks for a business trip (Aug 9 - 22,2004)
Not so enthusiatic about the hotel. The A/C wasn't working , there weren't any help to take my suitcase up the stairs, the hot water system wasn't working. The room was clean. The staff needed training when dealing with guests. Food was substandard. Not so impressed!
Myself and my partner stayed at the Bay Gardens Hotel for 7 nights from the 4th - 11th July 2004. What a fantastic little hotel, the hotels website does not do the place justice.
A piece of heaven on earth
I stayed at the Bay Gardens Hotel with my husband on 18th January 2004 for 9 nights. The standards of service, food and accommodation were excellent. The Management were extremely professional and helpful.
Working vacation. This place provided excellent food with many St.
I stayed there for 4 days, and every day was wonderful. The food was EXCELLENT. I thought the staff was pleasant, and it was very obvious that they took pride in making it nice for everyone. Wonderful place to stay. I look forward to staying there next time.
We chose to stay here as we wanted flexibility to explore and not be restricted by the "all inclusive" tag. Bay Gardens was an excellent choice. It's not on the beach but only a 10 minute walk away and you walk past the big "luxury" hotels (which tend to resemble open prisons!). The hotel is spotless, the staff are continually cleaning, dusting, sweeping and making sure everything is just right. They are friendly and courteous and help to make your stay a memorable one.
Bay Gardens is probably one of the best places to stay for a reasonable price. The staff is really friendly and helpful. Food and drinks are moderately priced. The hotel is a short distance away from the strip mall and about a ten minute walk to the beach. However, as nice as the hotel may look, there are rats that come out at night and wander about the patios and pools. On my first nights stay I even saw a rat jump in the pool and swim across because it was startled by us. I didn't mind the rats at night but I'm sure many people wouldn't be pleased. Other than the rats. it's a great place to stay.
