    Beautiful bay
    Dr Doolittle location for the film. It is a beautiful bay. Pretty spenney to stay at the hotels 🏨 there I think. Not a lot of beach 🏖 space though. Nice for a quick look round. Would I stay there? Probably not

    Would love to return
    Beautiful bay. Had a wonderful week staying at Marigot Hotel. Felt privileged to be staying there with such wonderful views. Staff were helpful. Loved the ferry/tug across water which was quick to appear whenever needed. Part of the beach reserved for hotel guests, lovely. We watched amazing sunsets from here. Hotel also had sunbathing area with steps into the sea, great snorkling. The beach had a food/drink kiosk and various services. You are approached initially so that they can tell you what is available but after that were no bother. We did buy drinks and had a fabulous lunch from the hut on beach, really good and cheaper than hotel food, even delivered to our deck bed. Also a wonderful massage on the beach, very professional, read the reviews for Hands on the Beach. Also hired kayark and went all around the bay admiring the yachts and property. Did kayark out of Bay to see Roseau Bay just around the corner. Only negative is that you need to get a taxi to go anywhere. Plenty of drivers available though. About 20 minute walk to bus stop, which we did try but mainly used a friendly taxi driver with their local knowledge. Our hotel room was basic but comfortable with great view. We were above reception but it was very quiet which suited us. We opted for daily clean (no extra charge), floor mopped daily and felt welcoming and clean. Large covered balcony area, we enjoyed. There was one day of rain when we had decided to visit Castries and then bus to Rodney Bay. As we left the receptionist chased after us with an umbrella, goodness were we grateful. We had a late flight on our last day, hotel helpful and allowed us to use a room to change in before leaving for airport. Ate at 3 restaurants around the bay, Doolittles was attached to hotel and they looked after us well. Watched many tour boats visit and leave the bay felt lucky to actually be staying there.

    BEAUTIFUL!
    A beautiful place to visit!! You can drive or walk (steep hill but doable!) to the top. There are food and souvenir vendors. And a perfect spot to see the whole bay. Some great places to eat and drink in the bay. The bartenders at Hurricane Hole were great! Fantastic place to watch the sunset and have a cocktail! (take the ferry across to Doolittles) You can rent a kayak and paddle around the bay or around the corner to a beautiful beach.

Came here by water taxi and had an enjoyable day unfortunately the weather was a bit mixed. Very pretty location and clear seas.

Terrible, I really can't understand why it has such good reviews. Went there, took the ferry to the beach, turned around and went back to the hotel. But see for yourself in the photos

Marigot Bay was a delite. We made friends with many of the locals and they we so friendly! We miss them already. The views, the amazing boats and catamarans were a sight to behold. Every restaurant served delicious meals. We especially enjoyed the local food hut next to our condo, next to the police station. We highly recommend Marigot Bay. It is centrally located between Rodney Bay and the Pitons.

Scammers on the beach. Reposting a photo of Will the most horrible man who not only tried to sell us a $30 weed joint, but also sexually harassed me personally. Hope he gets off the island soon. Or at least gets arrested.

We went here as it looked stunning. Sadly you are stuck on a beach that has a huge pile of rubbing, with the locals hussling with various drugs.

Whenever I visit St Lucia, Marigot Bay is always a must visit even if just for an hour to take in the views, take pics, have a free boat ride to the bar across the bay for a drink and comfort break. It’s one of my top 3 things to do on island and always recommend friends and family to spend time there

Bay is really nice. I went for a kayaking adventure in the bay and on the Roseau river. The area is quite small and most of it is part of the resort. There are a few restaurants to eat and watersports to try. There is a lot of rubbish on the beach.
