Beautiful Resort, Fantastic Apartment! Highly recommeded for a relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 8 days at the resort in March 2018 and had a wonderful time. The Capella Resort is a beautiful property overlooking Marigot Bay and the resort-managed marina. The Capella staff was welcoming and responsive, and tended to all of our requests. Javid, the owner, is very responsive and provided an excellent summary of how to best enjoy your stay and explore St. Lucia. All in all, the apartment is very spacious and provides privacy to a family or two couples. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the morning for coffee, or in the evening for a glass of wine, overlooking the pool, the bay, and the vessels in the marina. We found the setting unique, in that we normally stay on the beach in the Caribbean. The apartment was very comfortable and clean, and the housekeeping provided some of the best service that we have experienced. One important point, the resort does an outstanding job of controlling mosquitoes and pests; we were bug free during our time in the resort. We experienced all of the four restaurants at the resort. We enjoyed several dinners at the Rum Cave, breakfast and drinks at sunset at the Hurricane Hole. The food for lunch at the Pool Bar was very good. We found the Grill Room to be a nice setting, but was more expensive and less satisfying than the other three. Overall, meals at the resort and the island were expensive, but comparable to other high-end Caribbean destinations. Close to the resort, we tried Chateau Mygo which was good for breakfast and pizza take out. We really enjoyed Julietta’s, which overlooks the bay from the top of the hill. Our favorite restaurants were outside of the resort, The Coal Pot and the Pink Plantation, which have the same owner. Both are located in beautiful and picturesque settings, with similar menus. We arranged several private tours independent of the resort, a boat tour to the Pitons and various beaches and a sunset sail, and a tour of the Volcano and Botanical Gardens. There is a small beach across the bay, but while at Marigot Bay, we opted for the resort pool, which is marvelous, tranquil, and with a swim-up bar. We had a rental car delivered to the hotel, and would recommend using transportation on arrival. We found the beaches at Pidgeon Island/Rodney Bay to be the nicest. One of our favorite things about St. Lucia were the people, as the hotel staff, locals and fellow guests were all very friendly. A very peaceful and interesting place.

Wonderful vacation !

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Capella resort in Marigot Bay! The resort itself is beautiful and this 2 bedroom unit was wonderful - comfortable king sized beds, contemporary decor, two large bathrooms. My son was thoroughly spoiled by having his own separate bedroom and bathroom, not to mention the daily housekeeping service! It was great to have a kitchen for making breakfast. As a suggestion, a non-stick frying pan (I never remember to buy cooking spray) and maybe a couple of packets of salt and pepper would be great additions.

A nice touch was the refrigerator stocked with sodas which we made full use of for our evening cocktails on the balcony! We ate dinner at all of the nearby restaurants and liked Julietta's and the Cappella's own restaurant best. The staff at the resort was so friendly, from the first greeting at the airport where we were pleasantly surprised to be given a refreshing cool towel, to our last moment checking out. In fact, we found most of the people we encountered on St Lucia to be very friendly, which we certainly appreciated.

Marigot Bay was a good location for exploring the island, if you don't mind driving. We explored both North to Pigeon Bay and South to the Pitons and found the roads to be in generally good condition (although very curvy as you might expect) We made good use of the guide Jay provided, too.

All in all, a great escape from the cold March weather !

Great unit, excellent resort

  • 5 of 5

Renting this unit from Javid was a pleasure. He is responsive and helpful. The staff at the resort are great. Do take advantage of the wonderful Personal Assistant service. They assisted us with dinner reservations and other services. We booked two tours through Dive Fair Helen, the company Javid recommended. Andre is the owner, he personally toured the four of us on the land portion of our tour. He was interesting and unhurried. We went sea and river kayaking one day and snorkelling and land tour another day. The Indian restaurant next door, Marsala Bay, is outstanding. Truly world class Indian. The Grill restaurant on site is great. Service is excellent, food is good. We also enjoyed the Hurricane Hole. We rented a car and drove to Dasheene at Ladera for lunch, a must for the views of the Pitons and the sea. Then down to the beach at Sugar Beach. The drive there reminded me of the drive to Hana in Maui but on the left side of the road, a bit challenging, but a spectacular drive. We stayed 10 nights and the apartment was very comfortable for a family of four with two grown teenagers. All in all a very positive and enjoyable experience except the lack of beach at the resort (a quick two minute ferry ride to a small beach), and the island is a bit pricey (no more than Barbados, etc.) would be my only criticisms. We found the staff at the resort and all St. Lucian’s to be genuinely warm and friendly people. We will be back in St. Lucia soon.

Capella Resort Apartment great option...

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a Sunday to the Capella Marigot Bay Resort. This apartment/condo gives you a great mix of services. If you like having the extra space for your family, but enjoy the convenience of daily hotel services this is the spot for you. The property is represented well on the VRBO site. It is very clean and well maintained. You will enjoy overlooking the pool and Marigot Bay Marina. There are restaraunts on property and across the Bay. We tried them all and the food was very good. If you are looking for a "beach" this is not the best location. The property does not have a beach, and the little area across the bay really isn't a beach but a small peninsula with beach chairs. St. Lucia is not known for its beaches as it is a volcano. It is a very interesting island with wonderful natural spots to explore. The pool is wonderful and the poolside staff and sushi bar get a 5 star rating as well. We enjoyed a kayak river trip, although there was quite a bit of confusion with the arrangements with Dive Fair Helen. We enjoyed Juliette's for dinner, which is up the hill from the resort and overlooks the bay from an elevated view. Bug spray is a must, the resort does supply a bottle in your room. A great plus is that there are convenient charging stations for 110v (American powered electonics)in each room. If you have a multi-port charging block...bring it along for charging multiple phones/iPads/computer.

We usually cook in at least 1-2 nights while on vacation, but the grocery shopping is not great. Mostly frozen meats/seafood. The kitchen is adequate to prepare breakfasts and dinner. You may need a few utensils, but the resort is very helpful to provide you with anything you may need. I brought my own spices, cereal, snack bars for a start.

Do take advantage of the wonderful Personal Assistant service. They did assist us with dinner reservations and other services. The resort works with a different Dive Company than what the owner recommended.

We went on a great zip line adventure, TreeTop Adventure Park. They transportation that will pick you up at the Capella front desk and return you after your adventure. This is the one near Dennery.

There is not much activity for teens. We had great family time but it is a quiet place for good R&R.

We can recommend the Capella Marigot Bay apartment. Javid was very responsive with any question and the resort handled everything once we arrived.

Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for a week recently and had a great time in St Lucia. We stayed in the 3 bedroom apartment related to this property and i can say its very luxurious and well appointed. The hotel staff treated us very well and we made good use of the hotel pool and swim up bar. Marigot Bay is in a fantastic location. Snorkeling and canoeing and lunch at Ladera resort where highlights of our trip

Book it, you won't regret it

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations are perfect for 2 couples and we stayed 10 nights. The master suites are very spacious and very well appointed, actually I would say perfect. The bed was awesome and the older we get this plays an integral role in our travels. The air-conditioning worked great. Having maid service is a wonderful touch and they were very through. The proximity to the pool is perfect and makes it easy to run back to the room for incidentals such as wine and snacks. There was a great view to watch the yachts and boats in the marina. We felt very safe and all the staff was so kind and welcoming, I don't know how every staff remembered our names, this boggles my mind. We had a private chef one evening and the food was fantastic and entertaining and we got to keep the leftovers. We did the rum tasting at the resort, which is a must, so entertaining and educational. We took advantage of the complementary Yoga and Pilates, we learned so much from the classes. We rented a car and went to Ti Kaye once and Sugar Beach twice and for snorkeling which was awesome. The roads are less than desirable, but we managed. I would highly recommend renting from Javid, he was very attentive with answering any questions we had prior to booking and thereafter. I hope I get a chance to meet you some day.
