Thanks to Norman and Louise for a memorable stay in Marigot Bay. After our first stay a few years ago in the Marigot Bay hotel (now Capella Resort), we were keen to stay up on top of the hill to avoid the still air down at bayside. The Inn on the Bay was perfect. Located at the top of Marigot...

The Inn on the Bay is so far removed from the traditional concept of 'B and B' that it forms a new category of its own. Perched high above the waters of Marigot Bay it offers a splendid alternative to either the hotels of Rodney Bay or the all-inclusive resorts below Soufriere. Suffice to say that the plaudits are well...

As a winter break we recently spent seven nights at Inn On The Bay. My wife chose the location and it far exceeded both our expectations. From the deck of the Inn I now see why James Mitchener called this the "most beautiful bay in the Caribbean". The vistas are simply breathtaking. I can't praise our hosts Normand and Louise...

Inn on the Bay is an outstanding Bed & Breakfast INN that brings so much more to the table. Normand & Louise make themselves part of your life, part of your vacation experience without interfering in your own time & space. Taxi rides, food pick ups, setting up snorkeling tours, boat tours, dinner reservations, hiking locations, but most of all...

Normand and Louise, the owners, were the perfect blend of host, taxi driver, and concierge. We appreciated their wealth of knowledge about the area and their assistance with all sorts of activity questions, transportation details and dining suggestions. The inn itself is situated on top of a hill - the view will take your breath away. The rooms were spacious...

The Inn On The Bay is exactly the sort of place you hope you end up at on a trip to St. Lucia. My wife and I avoid resorts and all inclusive type places. But we do like the comfort of a 4-5 star place when we travel. Inn On The Bay offered the pampering, pleasant comfort, and subtle luxuries...

My wife and I throughly enjoyed a recent 5 night stay at the Inn with both our hosts and other guests. Sharing a taxi driven by Norm, a dinner or breakfast with fellow Inn "mates" added to the enjoyment of our St. Lucien experience. Norm appears to be "the unofficial mayor" of Marigot Bay, he knows everyone and everything about...

My husband and I stayed her for several nights, and we loved the place! Normand and Louise were exemplary hosts. Normand acted as our taxi driver, shuttling us down to town at our whim. Louise was a wonderful cook, and made mouth-watering sweet breads daily for the continental breakfast. The inn itself is lovely, with postcard-type views of the bay....

About a year ago I received one of those ‘Top 10’ e-mails from Trip Advisor and this hotel was listed amongst them. I had a look on Trip Advisor, then the hotel website itself before conducting a little more research into the general location and its amenities. The place seemed perfect for our needs, a quiet, small, non-resort adults-only location,...

Normand and Louise are fantastic hosts who ensured we had a memorable stay in Marigot Bay. I've stayed in many places and met many lovely people on my travels but Normand and Louise excel. From Normand's willingness to act as our on-call taxi to and from the town through to his willingness to castigate local restauranteurs when bookings went slightly...
