Our stay at the Pitons Stargroves was absolutely perfect! The villa was clean and well appointed and the view was amazing. Mary and Pious (the mother & son who do the housekeeping and maintenance) do an excellent job of maintaining the property and their hospitality during our stay was second to none. The property itself is absolutely stunning - I have been to many beautiful places across the globe, and the view here is phenomenal! I was initially worried about bugs, as this is an open air villa, but my concerns were quickly put to rest...not even one mosquito the entire time we were there!

The Oasis Marigot staff were also extremely helpful and accommodating - any e-mail queries were answered very promptly and they provided me with assistance with the car rental and taxi reservations.

We would definitely return to the Pitons Stargroves, and have already been recommending it to our friends and family!

We stopped here for 2 weeks in May 12 in the timeshare apartment no. 8. A quiet resort. Lots of stairs to keep you fit or use the funicular railway. The grounds rival those of the botanical gardens in the south! There is a nature trail to the top of the hill which takes about 15 mins one way but go in trainers as it is steep in places but there is the odd bench to rest on. The flora & fauna en-route is lovely (St. Lucia Pewee, Black Witch Moth etc.) the view at the top is worthwhile..... Loads of beautiful birds to see. Sit in the small pool & watch the hummingbirds or on your balcony & feed the Antillian Bullfinch's by hand. The Cariab Grackle's are a bit more shy, the Bananaquit & doves are the most common as well as numerous land crabs, lizards & various sized frogs. No air-con as standard (you can pay) but ceiling fans in the living room/kitchen & bedroom. Free WiFi but no TV (I don't know why you would want one). All the staff & security could not have been more helpful, lovely people who have worked there a long time. You need to get the water taxi to the north of the bay as there are no roads $15 per week unlimited use 24 hr service but you may have to wake them up if you come in late! At the bottom of the stairs is Doolittle's restaurant (where they filmed the Rex Harrison 1967 version of the film) for breakfast, lunch or dinner or just drinks excellent value for money, the food is brilliant & the staff are even better! Or the Rainforest Hideaway a nice short walk through the mangroves (expensive). Other restaurant's are across the bay. Julietta's good value for money, the best place to watch the sunset over the bay & they will pick you up & drop you off from across the bay, great food. The locally owned restaurant is Chateau Mygo - house of seafood & watch the Little Blue Heron fishing in the afternoon. Coco loco cocktails are nice & the food is great. The Hurricane Hole Bar is a good place to hang out for drinks or burgers next door is the french Boudreau Restaurant this is probably the most up market place of the area with excellent food but expensive. My favourite was J D's Mangrove Restaurant you need to get the water taxi, it has a little shop on site & a bar for drinks. Rowley's cafe was good for breakfast in the marina where the shops are, also a small supermarket, a bank & ATM machine. We enjoyed the sailing trips & it is only 20 mins in the water taxi to the capital Castries.

Our stay in the villas of the Oasis Marigot Bay Vacation Villas was one of our best vacations. The Villas are private, clean and well appointed. We opted for a/c in the bedroom downstairs for privacy and quiet.
The top floor of this sort of 3 level villa (the landing in the middle is the bathroom) opens completely up to allow the breezes, the views and the wildlife to visit. Relax, I am talking about the beautiful birds that visit to see what you are eating.
The staff of the Marigot Bay Vacation Club Villas were warm and friendly answering all our questions (patiently), arranging a day of sailing for us, water taxis and just insight into the island.
The first day we sailed to the Pitons, highly recommend this, it was relaxing, good food, fun guide (Vincent) and took us to the town, the volcano, the botanical gardens and some great snorkeling.
This property is different from Castries, it is a very relaxed bay with good restaurants and enough to do to keep you entertained. But, it is quiet and the natural beauty you are in is almost overwhelming.
I would give this 10 stars, but they only offered 5.

When we decided to go to St Lucia for a week-long relaxation fest, I did extensive research on where to stay. We wanted to be in a private, non-all-inclusive villa or b&b and The Caribbean Blue Suite was by far the most appealing place. Especially given their summer promotion pricing, it made the 7 nights a steal!

During our first night in the suite, my boyfriend proposed to me as we watched the sunset by the private plunge pool. It was super romantic and I couldn't think of a better place for this to happen (fellas take note!). We pre-ordered groceries to be stocked in our fridge (new service offered by Rachel, a sweet lady who lives literally two houses down) and so we even had some sparkling wine to toast with.

The suite is perfect two. The "living room" area is spacious and becomes even more inviting when the doors are open to the Caribbean Sea. The bedroom has enough space to fit several large suitcases and a few other smaller ones. We took full advantage of the cabinet shelves to store clothing for the week. There's enough room under the bed to store big suitcases, which kept the place clutter-free. Thank GOD for the mosquito netting over the four-post Queen size bed. There are a lot of bugs (one of the only downsides -- but it's inevitable anywhere tropical). We also bought some mosquito coils and citronella candles to keep them at bay at night.

Alice, the owner of the property, let us use the adjacent Emerald Hill Villa plunge pool during the days when it wasn't occupied. The view of Marigot Bay was breathtaking from the deck as well. The plunge pool in the Caribbean Suite is better than Emerald's, but you get a slightly more diverse view from Emerald.

When we weren't cooking our own food, we ventured down to town for meals. After the sunset, we'd hike down the path (~10 min walk) but afterwards would call for a taxi to take us back up the hill. Each trip was between 20-26 EC, roughly $7.50-$9. It adds up, but when we calculated the cost of renting a car, it was still less pricey (and less stressful ... we don't drive in NYC!)

We'd definitely recommend taking rides with Albert, who's very reliable, flexible, and sweet. His number is posted in the "welcome packet" found in the suite. Here are some places that we went to:
- Pigeon Island is a MUST. The view from the lookout is incredible. The park entrance for visitors is significantly higher than for locals ($11 USD vs $5) but it's worth it. You could practically spend the day lounging on their picturesque beaches or picnic areas.
- Soufriere is beautiful and a meeting point for many of the tours into the Pitons, volcano, botanical gardens. We went to the volcano, which was cool but nothing super special. The sulfur-infused mud baths were pretty neat (be prepared to soak in exceptionally hot water).
- Anse Chastanet is a really picturesque bay to snorkel. The water is crystal clear. I had a stand off with a baby baracuda (technically it wasn't a baracuda, but a look-alike fish) and sadly, the fish won. I resorted to getting drinks at the beach bar, which was fully stocked with the freshest fruit juices.
- Anse Cochon is also another great bay for scuba diving. Less developed than Chastanet, it provides a quiet hideaway for a beach day.
- Dennery is on the East side of the island, which we passed through on our way from the airport to Marigot Bay. It was worth stopping off at a vantage point to take photos, but we didn't go through.

As a food-lover, I was really excited to try the local eats. Here are some of my findings:
- On Friday nights, Gros Islet and Anse La Raye have street parties. We went to the one in Anse La Raye because it's much closer and more local than Gros Islet. The crispy fried whole fish near the entrance of the party was much better than the "a little bit of everything" plate for $75 EC (~$28 USD), although I did enjoy the conch and shrimp.
- Rainforest Hideaway is probably the best fancy restaurant in Marigot Bay. I also enjoyed Hurricane Hole for comfort food and drinks.
- The Edge in Rodney Bay is known for their sushi bar, but unfortunately the sushi chef had to take an emergency leave of absence so the bar was closed. That was a bit disappointing, but the main menu is also quite good. I'd recommend getting more appetizers over the entrees.

The folks at Oasis Marigot guest services were very helpful in arranging activities for us. We were scheduled to go on the South sailing tour on Tuesday but there was a mixup in communication and ended up with no boat. Oasis then arranged for a water taxi to take us to Soufriere and we continued with the tour there with another couple. It all ended up working quite well. Here were my favorite activities to do:
- Scuba diving (Discovery newbie program) with Andre of Dive Fair Helen. He was a great teacher and I was swimming alongside the fishes and corals in no time!
- Kayaking with Mark of Dive Fair Helen. Instead of going on our planned trip to Pigeon Island (which would've been insane), we did a more relaxed tour down to Anse Cochon. During the trip, it started to down pour, which ended up being awesome. Saw a gigantic sea turtle swimming about 20 ft away from us.
- Local fishing with Peter in the afternoon, near sunset. Although we didn't catch any big fish, there was a lot of fun in grabbing six or seven small ones in the course of three hours.

I think most of all, we enjoyed soaking in the rays and drinking Pitons by the plunge pool. Definitely going back for more!

Room tip: Caribbean Blue "Heaven" Suite is perfect for couples. A must-stay for newly-engaged or newly-weds!

Amazingggg place! We stayed in the Caribbean Blue Suite for 4 days in May. It was gorgeous!! Caribbean Blue is the last house on top of a cliff so it is very private and the view is incredible. Marigot was a great little town with some great restaurants and a nice little beach. There is a bit of a hill to get up to Caribbean Blue, but the plunge pool makes the walk no problem. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. They gave us a cell phone to call cabs and make reservations at restaurants. They were there to answer any questions and we could call guest services any time to book excursions. We did not have any complaints or problems. Oasis Marigot is great and definitely go for Caribbean Blue!
