We spent a week at Bay Garden Hotel in Feb/08. Great little hotel; attentive staff, great breakfast buffet, lovely pools (which we had all to ourselves). Our room was clean but in need of a little facelift (no matter; we only slept/showered there). What a wonderful island - easy to explore, felt very safe. Many shops carried decent wares; we were delighted to bring home many lovely things. We got rain everyday (liquid sunshine) but only kept the place fresh and lovely. There is so much to do; it's not necessarily a laze-on-the-beach-every-day kind of place although we did manage to do that too. The restaurants we visited served excellent fare (although some were pricey - as much as $140 for 2 persons). Get a front row seat on Friday or Saturday night in Rodney Bay and watch the local kids impress one another - some things are universal! Friday night JumpUp in Gros Islet was fun and also felt very safe for the tourists.
So, in essence, if you crave a slightly different vacation enjoying a variety of activities in a safe place with an interesting history and engaging people, then this is the place for you.
