About Jay

We are a family of six based in London and have had the apartment since 2006.

Jay purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Jay chose St Lucia

This is truly an amazing holiday experience and set in one of the most beautiful bays in the world. From the first moment we saw it we fell in love with the location.

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

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.

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.

Contemporary accommodations in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in St. Lucia and at the Capella Marigot Bay Resort. The apartment was spacious and in good order. Our personal assistant, Sasha, took excellent care of us during our stay and surprised us with a bottle of Prosecco upon our arrival. We thoroughly enjoyed the tours arranged by the resort and access to the many restaurants in the bay. (Julietta's and the Rainforest Hideaway were among our favorites. We also enjoyed lunches at Ladera and Sugar Beach, which is accessible by car.) The location was convenient to many local attractions and I would suggest renting a vehicle, which can be arranged through the resort, to see many of the sites on the island. (Although driving is not for the faint of heart.) We would highly recommend St. Lucia and the Capella Resort as a must see destination.

Relaxing, spacious and tranquil

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is wonderful for two couples wanting space apart and together. The Resort (the Capella) has the most gracious staff I have met in 45 countries of travel. Pools are wonderful, views amazing.

The ferry over to the Rainforest Hideaway for dinner opened up an amazing meal (we did it twice). Great location to travel south and north in St. Lucia (a good thing as the roads and views are amazing).

Javid, the owner lives in UK but makes sure you have everything. Great to deal with. We hope to go back.
