We arrived at height of Covid lockdown and had been warned by the staff that we would be having to order food from their service 7 days prior and it would be delivered to our room for us. All restaurants were closed and we would be preparing all our own meals. Also, there would be no leaving the resort for land excursions. It didn't sound like much of a vacation but we were pleasantly surprised that we enjoyed the quiet. There were a total of five of us at the Marigot. We had the pool to ourselves when we wanted. The staff was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed chatting with our neighbor from our patios. Our room was Oasis #10 and it had a nice view. The lower level was the bedroom which had a/c and a ceiling fan. There was a mosquito net around the bed. The upper level only the fan. We would open the porch doors up and sit outside. It was quite comfortable. There was no TV but we found the internet was quite good. There is an unusual chair lift that took us and our luggage up and down the steep hill. It was a little precarious looking but we really appreciated the lift. It was steep. There is a small beach area with lounge chairs and a small boat transit that brings you to the resort. We weren't able to leave the resort but there was a small town across the way where the taxi drops you off. It had a shop or two and a bank machine but none of that was available when we were there. We did do one boat ride along the coast. We all wore masks on the boat - captain and assistant & us. It was a small boat with friendly local guys and we had brought our own snorkel gear. We snorkeled a little. The trip was about a 3 hours. The rest of the time, we were at the resort. You can also rent Kayaks and other gear by the beach. When we were leaving, we heard they were closing the island down even more. One of the other guests stayed on alone as the rest of us left. She messaged later saying she'd moved into our villa and was having fun with the friendly birds. They took baths on our patio in a little dish. They were quite entertaining. I would love to return sometime when I can actually explore the island a little. I suggest 2 weeks if you go. One week did not seem enough. It's probably not the fanciest place you could go but it is one of the more personal places where the people are friendly.…
So happy we chose Oasis Marigot. The hotel is absolutely fabulous. Our view looking over Marigot Bay could not have been any better. The room was very clean. Everything worked perfectly. I can't say enough about the staff. Everyone was so nice and helpful. The grounds were very neat and clean. The best location in Marigot for walking to resturants, stores and anything you need. Will definitely return.
We had a fantastic stay in Unit 1 for 2 weeks. We loved this place, the views, the flexibility to cook in or eat out, the help and assistance from Miranda in the office to arrange trips etc. Very helpful, honest and kind folks. It is exactly as it is described. The pool is a treat after a hot hike up the trail or a day touring the island. We have nothing but great things to say and we can honestly say, we can’t wait to come back. Thank you for such an awesome vacation. Sharon & Nazz
Jacques was great to work with when our cruise and all travel to St Lucia was cancelled due the Global Covid-19 Pandemic. If we ever get a chance to port in St. Lucia, I will definitely schedule another private sail of the island.
We enjoyed a week in condo #5. The grounds and facilities are well maintained and have spectacular patio views of the bay. We were glad the bedroom had a fan and air conditioning! We enjoyed the pool almost daily in the late afternoon. Before you arrive, stock up on food from a market near the airport. The local market in Marigot Bay has minimal items and the prices are higher than in the city. We arrived on a holiday and the market was closed. Pack some essentials from home...coffee, etc. The hiking trail is steep, but definitely worth the trek. We enjoyed the Sunday orientation and meeting other guests. WiFi is not very good. Bring a book, don’t count on the internet.
