The Inn On The Bay
Ranked #1 of 4 Hotels in Marigot Bay
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 March 2012

Louise and Normand are great hosts: this little hotel out-charms any of the bigger Caribbean resorts we have visited because of their hard work and friendly approach. If you would like to see St Lucia without being shut inside a big resort, then you couldn't do better. Our lovely upstairs room was very private, spacious and airy. Breakfasts were informal (we sat on the balcony outside our room most days) and the food was ideal, lots of fruit complemented by Louise's wonderful baking. We had a different baked treat for every one of the 9 days we stayed. Normand knows the island very well and is a great source of advice. He will arrange tours and trips and make restaurant bookings. He is also a kind chauffeur in the evenings when the steep road to the village would be tricky to navigate. He will entertain and inform with his jokes, charm and some local gossip. The position up the hill means that the Inn has a fantastic view of Marigot Bay which is a lovely, natural hurricane hole. The bay really is the nicest spot on the island. There isn't much here, but that is a huge part of the charm. There are some good restaurants and a few shops. If you want to take some trips, then a car is useful but we also took a great sailing tour down the coast. Marigot Bay is brilliantly based between Castries/Rodney Bay and Soufriere (where many of the tourist spots are found) making it ideal for exploring.
Give this place a try if you are looking for luxurious, friendly, independent travel.

Normand and Louise are warm, gracious hosts that add a person touch to a beautiful location. We recently stayed at the Inn for four nights and wished we could have stayed longer. Our room was clean and bright; breakfast was delicious (a wide assortment of fruit and Louise's baked goods) and the scenery was spectacular. Although we were not on the water, Normand was always willing to shuttle us into Marigot Bay where there is a good choice of restaurants, bars and a beach. One activity that we particularly enjoyed was a full day sail from the bay to visit the volcano and botanical gardens before anchoring at a reef for soem great snorkelling. The Inn on the Bay is a great value and a wonderful spot if you value peace and quiet. Becky and Ed

Room Tip: We really enjoyed the privacy of room #5

Our decision to stay at the Inn On The Bay was largely based on previous TripAdvisor reviews, and it didn't take us long to understand why they were all so positive! From the moment we arrived in St Lucia all aspects of our holiday ran very smoothly. Normand had a booked a driver to meet us at the airport, and from that moment onwards everything we needed was taken care of. Our room was beautiful, with views over the Bay at one end and over the Caribbean at the other. Going down to the village for lunch and dinner was very easy. We always walked down at lunchtimes, but took the easy option for the journey back up the hill and simply called Normand, who without fail was there within 5 minutes to pick us up. We stayed for 5 nights, but would have been very happy to remain much longer!! Merci bien, Normand & Louise!!

For those of you who want somewhere unique to stay on St. Lucia we cannot recommend The Inn on Marigot Bay too highly. It 'ticked all the boxes' as far as we were concerned - the most stunning location high above the most beautiful Bay in the Caribbean (according to many) with gentle cooling breezes and views to die for, and really amazing personal friendly service from Normand and Louise which made our whole experience of staying there quite superb. If you want to escape the inevitable impersonal aspect of staying in a large resort then this is the place for you ! We wholeheartedly endorse what others have said about The Inn - you feel as if you are truly a guest in Normand and Louise's house, not just another paying guest in another hotel. And a superbly comfortable bed ...!

We had a great time in St Lucia, and loved The Inn on the Bay experience. Normand and Lousie went out of their way make sure that we enjoyed ourselves and the personalised service was unique. The location is fantastic and we will remember it in years to come.
