We stayed at Marigot Palms in the Clarence room which was perfect, the sliding patio door opened onto the pool area with a stunning view over looking Marigot Bay. The property in positioned on the hill side with a short but very steep walk to the bay where you will find bars and restaurants. There are 7 restaurants with bars, and most of the menus are not very comprehensive. The road down the hill is mostly lit at night but very uneven so leave your stilettos at home!
The resort could do with some more sunbeds as some of the guests had to lay on the floor, also there are no portable umbrellas to use with your sunbed, there is a bar at the resort but this is not stocked so you have to get your own drinks from the super market which Steve the owner will take you to at the beginning of your stay. There is also a gas BBQ for the guests to use and a dinning area.
We thought the tours and local taxis were expensive to give you an idea a taxis from Rodney Bay to Marigot Bay was quoted at $45, after walking away a few times the price came down to $20 and this was for five of us. Another time we got a cab from Castries to Marigot Palms quoted at $30 we payed $15. Be warned they seem to want to charge per person or per couple if you are sharing the same cab. We used the local buses which are very cheap about $4 to get to Rodney Bay for both of us, but you do have to change buses in Castries which is easy. The bus stop is quiet a long steep walk from Marigot Bay. Ask for a lift.
There is a lovely small bay kind of at the back of the resort about a 10min walk which is nice for swimming and snorkeling.
To my peril I found some of the street dogs not to be very friendly as I got badly bittern down one of the streets around the resort all I can say is be vigilante and maybe carry a large stick.
Apart from the dog experience we had a very nice time at Marigot Palms and I would recommend staying in one of the two rooms which open onto the pool as its nice to be able to walk in and out to get a beer etc.
