Discovery at Marigot BayPosted Mar 30, 2013
Pros: The natural beauty around us. The staff went above and beyond. The room was great.
Cons: Gym facility.
Location: Gorgeous Bay - a bit isolated, but great for solitude and quiet though. Very peaceful.
The hotel was absolutely beautiful. This was only my second trip to the south and the first experience was definitely lacking in customer service. This experience was truly heavenly. Our room was amazing-we did get an unexpected upgrade which was nice. We booked a bay view despite the reviews we read and lucked out with a fantastic bay view and a great balcony from which to enjoy. We had 2 very minor issues - our air conditioner was not cooling very well night #1. A quick call to the front desk and they had someone at our door in 15 minutes at 10 pm and it was fixed next am. Our door lock was a bit finicky and it was fixed ASA. The housekeeping was topnotch. The pools and spa facilities, reception, Hurricane Hole and Boudreau room were all very well-maintained. The staff were unbelievable attentive and friendly throughout the hotel and made the stay. We really enjoyed the food. The gym could have used better equipment but was adequate. We were a bit antsyafter 9 days in the Bay-we are not great at lounging. We wished arranged ahead for more days of car rental. Reviews on-line about the driving had made us reluctant,but it wasn't bad-you had to be cautious and drive slowly. The local beach wasn't the best, but we knew that going into it. So we did spend a few days and a few dollars getting rides in water taxis enabling us to see more of the Island. We also expected there would be more of a local market with local shops and eateries but there were not too many closeby.

Beautiful Oasis in St LuciaPosted Mar 22, 2013 on Hotels.com
Discovery Marigot Bay was a lovely place to come back to after trips over the bumpy roads of St Lucia to Souffriere and the Pitons.

Beautiful Setting/Fabulous StaffPosted Mar 13, 2013
Pros: Setting, rooms, staff
Cons: poor lighting inside and out
Location: Marigot Bay is a popular anchorage for the yachting set and is quite beautiful with gorgeous green water.
Discovery at Marigot Bay is in a delightful setting in beautiful St Lucia. The hotel is currently being sold and I was told it will be completely revamped this summer. The rooms were beautiful and the staff so kind and attentive, but the grounds of the hotel, while clean, needed some upgrading. Lighting at the hotel both in the rooms and on the grounds was very poor. The bedside light was not bright enough to read by and care had to be taken in areas outdoors that had stairs because some of the lights were not working. I was given two beach towels at the beginning of the week and never offered another clean one so that I had to use bath towels by the end of the week. There were not enough beach chairs by the pools and some of the umbrellas were broken. The landscaping also needed some refreshing with things looking a little sparse in some places. There are two restaurants on site, one casual and one more formal. The food was good and well presented. The casual restaurant did not have enough seats to accommodate the number of people who wanted to eat there in the evenings.

A place to relax and get you into island timePosted Mar 12, 2013

Location: Great location but not a great beach resort.. Great pools and water views of multimillion $ yachts that is reserved and quiet.
Great hotel. A bit isolated but fine if you know that. Nice views great pool(s). Rooms are great as well. Food is ok drinks are really good.

Low key and lovelyPosted Feb 25, 2013
Pros: The hotel suite and the grounds. The staff were so friendly and kept the place immaculate.
Cons: Constantly bargaining for transportation. It is expensive to get anywhere from the bay, whether by land or by sea.
Location: Fun to watch the "yacht set" the sail boats and catamarans coming and going out of the bay. However, no sunset or strolls on white sandy, beaches.
Our experience at the hotel was generally very good. The hotel suites are lovely-very spacious. The kitchen is well appointed for full-on cooking. The bed was very comfortable. The balcony large with beautiful views. The staff are friendly and prompt in their response to most requests. The hotel breakfast was a simple yet ample fare. The restaurant at the bar was actually one of our favorite meals all week. The food around the bay at the restaurants was moderate to good yet somewhat over priced. We tired of it after a week. We found it difficult to move about without a car. The roads are steep outside the bay and it is upwards of USD $45 to even think about getting in a car to so much as go 10 minutes down the road to an IGA grocery store. It would be a tough place to take kids. We went snorkeling through the hotel. Paid at the desk and dutifully showed up at the appointed time and place to catch a boat the next morning. There were many people waiting for day-trips and no one seemly knowing what was going on. People were shouting to "just get on a boat-any boat!" Kind of crazy, We waited over an hour then saw a dive boat heading out of the harbor, so we hailed it down and jumped on and went snorkeling with them. Never really sure if they were the company we were supposed to go with, but we had a good day on the water non-the-less. The overall experience was positive. The hotel is truly lovely.
Lush location with incredible viewsPosted Feb 25, 2013 on Hotels.com
I traveled as a single (mostly couples and a few families) (there were only 4 singles the week I was there) and the staff was so accommodating and took extra care that I had a great vacation. And I did.

Great ResortPosted Feb 19, 2013
Beautiful Location in a small bay which has a marina. Rooms are situtated in several buildings on hillside. Entry to most rooms involves lots of stairs Not wheelchair friendly Would visit again

Great hotel for relaxation!Posted Feb 16, 2013
Hotel was great, but service is a bit slow. More on Caribbean time than East Coast time. Not much nightlife at the hotel, but its in a gorgeous setting and very relaxing

Tranquil restful spotPosted Feb 10, 2013
Pros: Warm friendly staff
Cons: Furniture and fittings bit tired - but this is a small gripe only.
Location: Stunning picturesque bay with lots to do and see.
We stayed at Discovery in Jan- Feb 2013 and really enjoyed the hotel. We asked for a quiet room and got it (but then occupancy rates were very low). Its best asset is its fantastic professional, friendly, supportive staff albeit some of the furniture is tired. It’s situated on a mangrove swamp, so pack mozzie repellent (citronella spray provided in the rooms) & fly spray (screens on the rooms are ripped in places). We were told the menu at the Hurricane Hole and Boudreau Restaurant changes regularly but we saw no evidence of it doing so. Service at the café was slow – but the food at all these was good and tasty. Excellent swimming pools and gardens. Good choice of eateries nearby if you want to go out. Would we choose this hotel again? Without hesitation!
